Just download any launcher of your choice and use. The default carefree launcher doesn't have a menu.

Tickness and heaviness doesn't matter as long as a phone has "super optimum" battery performance. You can't just rule out the heaviness/thickness if a very very good battery is in the mix.


Whoever doesnt like the thickness should opt for Gionee "E" series that come with premium functions along with very slim and light body.


Of course "mega battery" shouldn't be expected in that case even though the battery backup is still good.

It doesn't seem thick and heavy to me, in fact it's a perfect fit with beautiful design.

Please do you have issues with your notifications.. Especially bbm and whatsapp... I noticed I don't get my bbm pings the moment the person sends it particularly If my bbm is not open. As is common with other phones, I'm supposed to be getting my pings on the upper left side of my screen... But it isn't so on this M5.

Have you faced this same issue?
i think the gionee is fake 3 of my friends gionee m5 is doing the same thing they have tried all they can but the same that's why i bought mine from gionee sales girls at finet shop and its working perfectly am so in love with my device it has three color notifications while charging when battery is full and messages like miss calls text from whats app bb etc

I've actually fixed it... It had to do with a settings in the power management area. Mention me if your friends haven't still gotten it solved... I'll drop the steps here.

The battery is of average (my opinion). Charged full this morning(7:00am) and played need for Speed "no limit" for 2hrs, being online tru out and as I type I have 42%(5:30pm).
For those asking for led notification light, yes it has.
I would advice anyone with this monster to jettison the Amigo - carefree launcher and download/install Google Now launcher.

I can answer any mystery thatthat you have about this phone.


Guy how much you buy the fone? And does it come in gold colour?
Re: Gionee M5 Discussion Thread by directonpc(m): 11:46am On Oct 30, 2015
