The camera comes coupled with dual-tone LED flash which helps in capturing images and recording videos even in dark conditions. The rear-facing camera can record videos upto full-HD (1920x1080) resolution. Overall the camera delivers decent images with a number of bundled modes to help users in every condition.

How is the sound quality of this phone?
Sound quality will decrease day by day after you start to use the phone. I mean you cannot listen to the phone's loudspeaker clearly when you increase your fan's speed at max level (i.e., 5).

If you Listen to songs it's fine, but for calling its bit low compared to another mobile. But the mobile performance is best at this price.

Which one is better between Gionee P7 and Asus Zenfone max?
Both have their benefits and drawbacks. Personally, I prefer the Zenfone Max because of the UI which is very powerful and lets you control many things under the hood easily. The launcher is also very powerful and has many features not found on many other phones.

I did not use Gionee P7 and Asus Zenfone. It is a waste of money, don't purchase this phone. It has a hanging and calling problem and it is a very slow phone.

How is the speaker quality of this phone, is it average?
Yes, though it is average, it has a sweet sound. As it is a branded phone, the company managed the quality of the sound and not the level. All in all, I can say 8 /10
By Ravinde**
Mark Helpful (88)
Yes, it is average. Not much louder, but you can hear it's audible. If you want best speakers, then go for Nokia, Moto or Mi.

Not worth it.
By MySmartPrice User
Just for 5000mAh battery it is useless to pay 10k. There are better phones in this range. Processor is not good. It's lagging while playing games. Multitasking is average.
