Gionee P5W; Quick Look and Price in Kenya 


Gionee Mobile brand is not so old. The brand is just some few years old and some days or months old in Kenya. While roaming around the web with nothing important to do, I came across this phone, the Gionee P5W. One thing that got me was the design, it looked amazing and decided to check and find out why it is priced at around 9k. 

Gionee P5W is a good smartphone not best and it’s a low end smartphone with a smaller display screen. If you’re used to some 5.5 inch screen, you will so much realize the difference. To some extend I feel the phone has been overpriced.

Let’s have a clue of the specifications of the Gionee P5W 3G smartphone. After going through these you will understand why I say it might just be an overpriced phone. 

  • 5.0 inch IPS screen
  • 1280*720 pixels screen resolution
  • 2MP front snapper 
  • 5MP rear camera
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB ROM
  • SD card slot; Yes. 
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop

I haven’t found out the battery capacity but I have a feeling it is not any better. Maybe not above 3000mAh. 

From the above quick specs you can feel how this phone performs. And also in comparison with the price, you can realize that it has been overpriced at 9k. At some retail shops it can go for like 12k. 

Running on Lollipop is not new. We have phones running on Android M like Tecno W4 and W3 and they cost less. 

Maybe we can say the internal storage of 16GB is one thing that seems good about the phone. 1GB RAM too can perform better. But performance will always slow down with time.

The cameras of the Gionee P5W are nothing to be proud of. A primary camera of 5MP is a joke of a century. Plus a 2MP front snapper those cannot compare with any good smartphone.


I have seen that the Gionee P5W 3G smartphone supports face unlock. This is face unlock and it is in no way special like eye verification. A 2MP camera will not have such features to do some awesome stuff.

Hey, but am glad you’re now informed of this. You should not always just buy a smartphone because it looks cool. Buy one you will apart from enjoy carrying also using it should be amazing.
