Gionee Steel 2 Price In Nigeria, India, China, Specs And Review

When I first saw “steel”, the first thing that
came to my mind was that this phone was
going to be something like the Nokia 3310
and its very recent follower, the Nokia 6,
which can be used to crack walnuts. And for
the fact that steel sounds more masculine
than the names of the others, I also thought
it would be used to break harder things than
walnuts, say coconuts – that’s on a lighter
note though.

Gionee has released a budget phone – the
Gionee Steel 2 – which has every edge on
other smart phones that might be in its
category as its specifications are pretty
higher and better than just any budget phone
you see. To me, the specs seems higher than
the price.
Let’s see what it seems to you. All
you need to do is to stay with me..

TECHNOLOGY AND DESIGN

Apologies to the party involved but while
phone makers like iTel are still living in the
past and have decided not to upgrade to the
modern day reality, smarter ones like Gionee
have showed determination to keep up with
the competition, which is evident in this
phone supporting the 4G LTE network.
It runs on an Android operating system v6.0
Marshmallow with Amigo 3.5 UI.
Talking about the size, it features a 5 inch
screen with a display resolution of 1280 * 720
pixels (HD). While it measures 144.3 * 70.5 *
8.6 mm and has a Weight of 160g. The
Gionee Steel 2 is built with a metal unibody
design.

HARDWARE AND MEMORY

The Gionee Steel 2 possesses a quad-core
64-bit MediaTek MT6737 processor with a
processor speed of 1.3 GHz.
For those who have had a new year
resolution not to purchase a smartphone with
less than a 2 GB RAM, I am very pleased to
inform you that the Gionee Steel 2 boasts of
a 3 GB RAM and has two variants with
respect to the internal storage. One variant
possesses a 16 GB storage while the other
has a 32 GB storage. But then, both can be
expanded up to the capacity of 128 GB with
the use of a micro SD card.
Sensors available include the Accelerometer,
Light, Proximity, Compass, and the
Fingerprint Sensor. Its actually remarkable
that the fingerprint sensor in present in the
Gionee Steel 2, it actually gives it an edge
over some other smartphone brands.


CAMERA

The rear camera of the Gionee Steel 2 boast
of a quality of 8 MP while selfie lovers can
make do with just 5 MP with the front facing
camera.
I don’t know if our “campaign” against the
discrimination of selfie addicts has been
having any effect but it all looks like it hasn’t.
Gionee just proved that to us, but then, we
won’t relent at all.


MULTIMEDIA AND CONNECTIVITY

Bluetooth is of v4.0 while the Gionee Steel 2
supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and GPS with
A-GPS and micro-USB is of v2.0. It still has
the 3.5 mm audio jack available.

BATTERY

I’m very bewildered by the fact that the
Gionee Steel 2 meets and exceeds my
expectations in this area. In fact, it floored
my base battery capacity with its 4000 mAh
battery. It is very commendable that a phone
of this caliber possesses such battery power,
as others with higher specs only boast of
lower battery power. It a good one from
Gionee.

PRICE

So now to the price. I’m sure you must be
thinking about how much this “low budget”
but high spec phone costs. Would the price
complement the fact that it is low budget, or
the fact that it is pretty high spec.
The Gionee Steel 2 would sell for about
N40,000 in Nigeria, Rs. 12,810 in India and
¥1299 in BATTERY
