  9. Pare ang gionee ay hindi nagrerebrand ng handset fyi mannufacturer sya if you have cherry mobile and gionee compare it in actual so you realize the far difference of two brand..

  10. Yes, actually I just recently knew that Gionee is a huge phone manufacturer form china ka hilera lang nila ang HUAWEI and other HUGE mobile phone manufacturer in China and all over the world but still, the GN708 is just overpriced. XOLO Q800 is a rebrand of Gionee GN708,("XOLO ang nag rebrand") Pareho lang sila. pero ang laki ng difference sa price. sana hindi nila pinayagan na irebrand ng other brand ang phone nila if they are really a reputable brand. like HUAWEI, ZTE etc. hindi nila pina pa rebrand ang mga phones nila walang magka pareho sa ibang brand. talagang sa brand lang nila meron ang mga phone nila. I'm not an expert but I guess wrong move talaga yang papayagan nilang irebrand ang phones nila ng hindi reputable na brand. isipin mo nalang kung may samsung s4 ka tapos nirebrand ng myphone. hahaha! pero I'm sure naman hindi papayag ang samsung nyan because they are truly a reputable brand even HUAWEI and ZTE. but anyway I really don't care now about this phone and I know hindi maganda ang sales nila for this phone. lalo na ngayon kase may Cherry mobile apollo na which has the same specs with GN708 also 4.5 inch. or even better than the GN708. and the price? a whopping 4k difference! Cherry mobile Apollo is priced at 6999 while GN708 is priced at 10999! so I prefer to choose the cherry mobile Apollo over the GN708. not just because of the big difference of price but apollo is much better because of it's 12mp back camera with dual flash and BSI sensor and 2mp front camera. walang kwenta ang GN708!

    yes i have it.. maganda and satisfied ako morethan a week plang sa akin yung unit at na observe ko lang umaabot ng 2 days yung battery life nya kpag text and call and mga 1 hour na laro lang, wag lang sobrang tagal maglaro. cash price 8,000. compare ko sa cherry mobile titan tv sobrang bilis mag lowbat kahit naka standby lang pinaka matagal na 4-6 hours, ang sabi kasi ng customer service ng cherry dapat daw i adjust yung brightness para di mabilis mag drain pero ganun pa din..... cherry mobile vs. gionee para sa akin gionee na ako..
