G-Five President G9 Video Review Part 1 – Introduction & Benchmarks
Hey everyone….the wait’s over here’s the 1st installment of the 3 part video review of the Gfive President G9, we had been getting a lot of requests for a comprehensive and extensive video review of the Gfive G9 President, we tried to cover most of the questions that were asked and for that reason and so that we could do proper justice we have divided the video review into parts.
Well 1st off in the introduction we took a look at the build and dimensions of the President G9, we had attached the flip cover that came along with it. The back cover is made of light plastic and is not textured. The rest of the body of the G9 is quite good and feels solid the glass screen cover is made of Type B Gorilla Glass; meaning it’s hardened and scratch resistant. The screen is covered by a screen guard, plus the flip cover has a soft velvet type material in the inside facing the cover and a leather type texture on the outside.
It houses a large 2500MAh battery which gives sufficient run time to the G9, it has dual sim capability and also allows for storage expansion of up to 64GB via Sd Card. Has an 8mp back camera and a 3mp front camera, the 5.7” screen tech is IPS lcd, IPS is better than regular Lcd as you can see in the video the viewing angles are good.
If you would like to know more about IPS and AMOLED please view the following article.
The thickness as compared to Iphone 4 is they are almost the same, of course there is a definite difference in width and length, and it’s kind of unfair to compare it to the Iphone, but it should give you a relative idea.
Since the G9 is running on the jellybean 4.2 the touch is amazingly smooth, we will discuss features of the Android Jelly bean 4.2 in the upcoming video reviews. If you would like to get an idea of the difference between jellybean 4.1 and 4.2 we suggest you visit the following article beforehand so you can get a good idea of what type of functionalities the jellybean 4.2 makes the G9 capable of:
On The Bench:
In the benchmarks as you can see the results vary since the un-boxing since there are always different processes running in smart-phones and if you have added or installed different apps the results may vary even more, the best part is that although the phone is half the price of major brands having same specs but performance wise it is also similar, so meaning it has great value for money.
In the heavy graphics testing done by Antutu benchmarks, the G9 performed quite well rendering at a constant 52 fps, the minimum fps required so that jerks and lag are not visible is 30fps, where 60fps is considered optimum and that too at full resolution.
This is good news for gamer guys who are on a budget and can’t afford to buy high end branded phones, the Gfive PresidentG9 can handle heavy games pretty well as we will see in the next installment of the video review.
