Gionee Pioneer P2M Price in Nepal

Gionee is a new brand in the Nepali market. It is doing good to stand in the smartphone market battle of Nepal. After about a week of release in India, Pioneer P2M has been launched in Nepal. It is a budget range phone with Android 5.1 Lollipop OS. Most of the phones now being launched are coming with Lollipop operating system. The Gionee Pioneer P2M Price in Nepal is Rs 9,999. The company wants to target the entry-level segment.

The entry-level market is very big in Asian countries. Nepal and Indian people want best value products at the least price. Gionee is trying to capture that market. They are using the base level processor and using the latest software. This can give a good experience to users. Smartphones are improving each year and we can see this with the products of each company.

Gionee Pioneer P2M Specifications

The phone comes with a 4-inch IPS LCD screen. It has a WVGA resolution of 480×800. Inside there is a MediaTek MT6580 SoC WITH 1.3 GHz quad-core processor. The system comes with 1GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. This is good and is enough for many people. Storage can be also expanded up to 32 GB using an external SD card. This is a bit low because we expect 64 GB these days.

The rear camera is a 5 MP shooter with LED flash. And the front is 2 MP with VGA resolution. The back camera is just fine for normal pictures and HD video recording. It is a dual SIM phone so that is good for the networking part. Gionee P2M is powered by a 3000 mAh battery. This is very good because we don’t see such big batteries in small phones. We also have Bluetooth 4.0 and FM Radio for communication and entertainment.

This phone is using new Lollipop but there is Amigo 3.0 UI on top. This can hider the performance of phones. We request phone manufactures to use stock android or use Android One like other manufacturers. In terms of sensors, this phone has a compass and accelerometer.

Impressions with Pros and Cons

The specs are quite low but we have to consider the price. At this price range, it has quite good things. There is a quad-core processor and not a dual-core processor. The best things of the phone are the bigger 3000 mAh battery. This should be able to power this mobile up easily for a day. There is dual SIM support and Android 5.1 operating system.


The company claims that the phone can run for a really long time. This is with new “Extreme Power saving mode”. Many companies use such similar tactics for RAM management and power management. This is a low phoner phone and it has Amigo 3.0 UI overlay which can make it slow. Companies should put stock Android as far as possible in entry-level and budget phones. This gives good performance and experience to users.  If customers are happy, it is great for everyone.

We do like the fact that there is 16 GB storage. This is a generous amount for this segment. Big apps are becoming common and no one wants to gasp for space. Gionee Pioneer P2M is a budget phone with dual GSM SIM support. For the Gionee Pioneer P2M Price, it is a good option in the Nepali market. However, if you want a budget phone with both GSM and CDMA support then Galaxy Ace 4 is the answer. Galaxy Core Prime is the best phone if you want a 4.5-inch phone with same level specs and same price range and yes lollipop too.
