Display and Camera
Although described as mini, the Gionee M5 Mini still packs a large 5-inch diagonal display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.
Buyers will be right to expect decently enjoyable viewing since this display is based on In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, which ensures nice viewing from different angles.
The M5 Mini packs an 8-megapixel snapper on its rear to help you capture those exciting moments.
The 5-megapixel front-facing snapper should also enable spectacular shots on the Gionee M5 Mini, especially when you consider that it comes with a feature that enables you enhance facial beauty.
Performance and OS
The Gionee M5 Mini is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6580 processor which supposedly promises faster task execution since it uses the Reduced Instruction Set Computing (RISC) strategy, rather than the more widely-used Complex Instruction Set Computing (CISC).
