G-Five President G9 Video Review Part 2 – Games Review

In this video review of GFive President G9 we focused specifically on games. We played temple run 2, front line commando, real racing 3 and dead trigger. All of these games take a decent toll on smartphone Resources specifically Ram and GPU, they all ran without any problems and infact gave an excellent gaming experience. Because the screen is big, the controls of the games are also separated with good distance giving you the best control.

G-Five G9 President Video Review of Games from PhoneGuru Reviews on Vimeo.

 

Temple Run 2:

We set TR2 at the maximum graphics detail level and the Gfive President G9 ran it without a single hiccup, the same when we ran it on the previous Gfive Bravo at high graphics level there was a slight lag.
The extra toll on the gpu and processors is due to the slight atmospheric affects, shadows and smoke effects which can test any GPU. But the Gfive President G9 was able to depict the complex shades and particles without a sweat.

 

Front Line Commando Dday:

Now this is a game which if the device does not have the capability to handle will not work we tried this game on the Huawei it took its sweet time to load and did not work either.  Here again the G9’s quadcore processor , advanced PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU, and 1Gb Ram were able to handle it with no lag or jerks giving an excellent gaming experience while working at high graphics detail.

 

Real Racing 3:

Again a very popular and resource hungry game, it worked on the Huawei and the Gfive bravo but we noticed sound degradation in the Bravo and a slight lag, in the Huawei the lag was a bit more visible. Here again the President G9 ran it without any sound degradation due its DTS functionality and its high end specs there was no lag or jerks seen in the game and because of the jellybean 4.2  OS the touch response was also very smooth.

 

Dead Trigger:

This is a 3d fps which again is a very resource sensitive game, if the device it is installed on does not have the required specs it will lag a lot and might not run on some. So as you can see in the video the Gfive G9 handled the heavy game pretty well and the touch was very responsive and smooth, making for easy game play.

 

 

Gaming Review Remarks:

Our opinion on the Gfive President G9 with regards to games is that it can handle heavy games, and given its comparative price to high end branded smartphones it is a breather for the average person who can’t afford high end brand smartphones and still wants the opportunity to play heavy games. We might be following up on the review by including some other resource hungry games.

  5. Hi Usman Malik:

    What do you suggest me about G Five’ President G9. Can i go for that or some other one with in Pkr 20,000.00

    Shahzad Malik

    • Well, you can see the videos , compare the specs and prices yourself and decide. But I dont think in 20,000 you will get a phone with quad core and 1 GB RAM. I may be wrong. If you know any in this price range then do let me know

  6. whats its GPU

  7. Hi Usman bro, can u do a comparison review, i mean a side by side review with a good phone, like Samsung galaxy s3 maybe. i will be great if you can.

  8. Do you think G9 is better than lumia 520? I know the specs are far better but what about resale value and brand support?

    • Well currently my opinion would go towards the G9, mainly because of Gfive’s insurance policy which no other company in Pakistan has offered before, with regards to nokia 520 resale, windows phones are catching up, nokia had a great time with their symbians before Android came in. So the resale value I guess for both would be at par. But then again this is my opinion the actual picture could be different but given the success of the qmobile smartphones, android has the upper hand on windows….

      • What about future updates? Lumia 520 is getting the ‘Windows Phone Blue’ with the official return of the start button next year. But is G’FIVE rolling out the 4.2.2 update? And if their update is not OTA (Over The Air) like QMobile, it’ll be pretty hard becuz QMobile still has several Customer Service Centres in almost all major cities but for G’FIVE, this number is quite small…

    • You really cant compare Lumia 520 with G9.. They have difference OS .. Windows phone 8 is definitely a better OS performance wise in my opinion. G9 has android which has its own advantages.

  9. add a camera review too

  10. U ARE REALLY DOING A EXCELLENT JOD BRO…..u WILL FAMOUS VERY VERY SOON {INSHAALLAH}

  14. Dera Usman Malik,

    Your review really helped me a lot in deciding the today i went to the market, and did compare between qmobie a20 an president g9 qmobie does not have HD display. I have some question regarding G9 please help me in this regard.
    1. What resolution video G9 records? Is it 1080p or 720p?
    2. Go to settings>about phone>then tap 4 to 5 andriod version 4.2.1 jelly bean it does not show the jelly beans and some setting is opened over there please also advice in this regard.

    Usman Bhai your early reply will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Khizar Ali Lodhi.

    • Well I am glad we could be of help….

      1. it records at 1080p and 720p,
      2.When you do multiple taps on it takes you into the developer mode selections, debug etc…. same way if you go on the last one and tap on Build number multiple times…it will give you a note saying something like congrats you are 2 steps or 1 step away from being a developer…so the Android version of Jellybean is legit, but in our opinion they have customized it in their own way…but then again its our opinion.

  15. a20 kab tak aye ga market main?

  16. Have you tried navigation on it? does it work with satellite uplink like in offline maps? can you please let me know. thanks

  17. banchmark aur performance k lehaz sy gfive G9 acha hai ya Q A20?

    waitingg

  21. is phone ka weight kitna he??

    sub se impotant baat yeh he k qmobile k updates nahi ati aur custom roms nahi hn…..custom roms bahut important hn

    dosri baat root krne mn pareshani

    xda mn koi forum nahi
    pakistani brand he samsung k liye apps and games optimized hoti hn tu results in better performance

  22. and one thing more rom size small he heavy games ka tu soch nahi sakte
    like recently launched game of gameloft over 2.5gb
    is se behter he k galaxy s2 le liya jaye 16gb rom

    MTK6589, Cortex A7 Quad core, 1.2GHz
    a7 he atleast a9 hota cortex

    is price mn yehi package he phr

    galaxy nexus ya gs2 itne mn mil jaye ga used mn i think they r better options

  23. Usman bhai mere G9 main RealRacing hang ho rahi hai, main ne gb sdcard lagaya hai, game data sdcard par save hai

    • Have you tested by installing the complete game in internal memory rather than storing game data in sd card

      • Main task manager main Ja kar kill all tasks karne k baad chala ta hun tou bilkul sahi chalti hai

        Shayad background main ziada apps hain

  24. Assalam o alaikum Usman bhai,

    First of all I would like to appreciate what you are doing and I have to say that you have almost convinced me to purchase G9. You have made such a comprehensive and great review of G9. Hats off to you.

    My question is that do you have any idea if this smart phone would work in Germany? I am willing to purchase it but people have told me that sometimes phones don’t work in other countries.

    Thanks

    • Thanks for the compliments. Haseeb these phones should work anywhere where there is a GSM network . G9 also support 3G . So theoretically it should work anywhere in the world and besides . Gfive is an international company operating in many countries, but saying all that I havent tested it myself in germany :-)

      • Phew! Thanks a lot for clearing my doubts and for replying so quickly. hahaha welll obviously :D So I am going to purchase G9 now :)

        P.S: Sorry for posting the comment on the other thread though!

        Keep up the good work! :)

  25. Aoa Usman bhai.. I have a query.. On the websites the length of gfive g9 is mentioned as 142 mm while that of qmobile noir a600 is 144mm.. Still g9 has 5.7 inch LCD while noir a600 has 5 inch LCD.. so does this mean that overall length of g9 is smaller than a600?? My main concern is fitting the cell phone in the pocket.. I shall be obliged if u reply.. Thanx..

  26. Mukhtar Qureshi Advocate

    Dear Usman.kia G9 pdf files aur flv videos ko support karta hay.Answer plz.

  27. Dear Usman Bhai,

    Kindly will you mention which Micro SD card you are using for Games?
    Company?
    Class?
    GBs?

    Because Real Racing 3 started with so many hangs on Gfive G9. G9 hanged almost 5 to 6 times before reaching to Real Racing 3 game menu.

  28. Usman bhai please please reply fast is main modern combat 4 aur NFS mostwanted chal sakti hai??

  29. Usman Malik bhai kya gfive g9 me OTA updates hein….???

      • Dear Usman Malik.

        You are doing a wonderful job for mobile users who really don’t know how to use the new technology, I appreciate your kind efforts.
        From your detail reviews I saved Rs:40,000/- I was interested to buy S4 but I saw your gfive G9 and I bought it yesterday its amazing in this price. My concern is games, can you please tell me where and how to get the hd games like Real Racing, Nova 3 etc. is there any website you recommend to download free and also tell me the procedure.

        Thanks in advance
        Salman

  30. thanks for the reply….:)

  31. i have 3 question about gfive g9
    1.its battery timing according to heavy use (music , games ,browsing, and camera)
    2.is it realy support full features of android latest version
    3.its camera quality indoor(means low light area) and front facing camera quality can we compare it with
    apple iphone 4s front facing 2 mega pixel camera which i think is the best front facing camera to this time

    thanx. Allah hafiz

    • Its battery timing is really good. I’m personally using this phone and it’s just awesome it got 2500 mSg battery which is aheavy duty battery and gives you good battery time with full use of internet, camera and games.
      Yes it contains all the features of latest android nothing is missing.
      You cannot compare the cares with iPhone 4S because the price difference between the both is very much although G9’s camera quality is not so good but with price tag of 21,000 PKR, and with all other features thus phone is very good.

      Hope it will help.

    • Real Racing 3 is a free game you can download from playstore. Other games like Nova 3 you will have to download from internet

      • usman bhai.

        i downloaded i real racing 3 from play store but its not play in my mobile screen stuck on when game video or promo start. and phone gove hang every time i pull out the battery to restart my mobile

        please help ram showin 480 mb free

        • It will stuck few times, after loading full then it will be normal. I experience the same.

          • ok but i tried screen goes black after a long time upto approx 45 minutes, according this tried 10 times. mobile gone hang

          • Which SD card you are using? Class?

          • Transend – 16 gb – class 4

          • i have normal sd card 8gb which came with mobile for free.. if you suggest any type of sd card i will buy it. if i insert my new card on gfive g9, so i have to dowload the game again or i just copy the data to my computer thsn put the data into new sd card and run apk file from play store ?

            thanks please reply soon.

          • I am not expert so I can’t recommend.

            I bought SanDisk Ultra 32gb Class 10.

            Latest is class 10. But do your own research on internet to find out. As I said earlier mine was also hanged few times when I try to load RR3 first time.

          • I am not sure if you will have to download again or not. You can try to copy the content and use. SD card have classes .. so better the class , better the speed. Class 10 SD cards are also available

        • Let the promo finish it self and then try to play.. usually this happens when you interrupt the promo. Or try to skip the promo even before it starts.

          • Usman Bhai please Guide karein thoda Sa k Is ka Gpu for gamingz yeh strong hai yaa nahi i mean Need for speed Underground and Heavy Graphics Games Run karta hai yaa Nahi ?

  33. and Without Inshurance kahan se Purchase kar saktey hain Woh bhi bataye ??

    • Usman bhai g9 is good for gaming i played asphalt 7 asphalt 8 also frontline commando real racing etc.
      but i am facing a very awkward problem after some days game were not running even frontline commando, asphalt 7, asphalt 8 real racing. crashing all the time. these all games are stored in sd card. i also installed virtual tennis it plays normal no issue. i thought there is an virus or something came when i connect to the pc but virtual tennis are working. other games not.
      i uninstalled and did the process as before but not play crashing all the time …
      please inform me i bought this phone only for gaming and you know it prices are decrease from 22000 to 18000 and buy it for 22000. if i sale this mobile it will be a huge loss for me.

      i am happy with its overall performance but this is the strangest problem i ever faced in mobile.
      i played asphalt 7 in HTC explorer also.

      please give me solution thanks & regards

      • Try a different SD card, could be a problem with that.

        • i change sd card with sandisk 16gb ultra class 10 but problem is same.

          I sold the mobile in Rs: 15000/- but g9 is best the only problem is size. if gfive make g9 mini i will be the best phone in all definate beat samsung also

  34. Hey Usman….
    PLz run more resource hungry games like NOVA 3, Asphalt 7 and Asphalt 8,Modern Combat 4 Zero Hour etc.
    So we would know more about gfive g9′s gaming capicity……

  35. Iss ko agr purchase krna ho to kahan say kren?? Warranty kis company ki hai iss ki

  36. Can you plz mention the score of g9 in nenamark 2 graphics benchmark…..

  37. usman bhai qmobile a10 acha ha ya g9 also tell who’S CAMERA ANDPERFORMANCEis goodddddddddddddd

  38. usman bhai g9 ki waranty kis kis chiz ki ha or is ka front camera kasa ha please answer and also thanks to reply my last question…….thanks very much

    • Front camera is alright, warranty is the usual stuff, spot on LCD, if it gets damaged then of course no warranty, accessories are never under warranty so be careful on that.

  39. back camera our processor ki waranty ha

    • Except accessories everything has warranty until or unless its not broken and damaged because of miss handling. Today I claimed warranty of G9 because its whole front was not glued properly and started to come off. Purchased this phone 2 weeks ago. That shows massively poor build quality of handset. They have used very low quality plastic on it. So if you own one then handle with care otherwise it will not last long

  40. salam,bro im using gfive g9president since 2months and its constantly hangs nd restarts may be 20times a day once i went to shop the shopkeepr changed battry but its still same hanging n restrting plz tell me kia problm hai

  41. Usman bhai,
    I downloaded the real racing 3 for free from the market and installled using(though it takes a long timeb)the app.the app starts up and then hangs i then have to restart my phone..

  42. bhai i got a range of 1500 to 17000 rs i want to buy a all rounder phone that may run 2 years without any seviour problem. plz tell me. which one should i buy, i really like g9 but some people on net are saying that its not reliable ye ziada nahi chale ga. max 4 months.

    and some comments are confusing me about its performance plzzz help

    • Well can’t comment on that, it also depends on your handling some people are rough with their phones, for them we recommend phones with a metal body, such as HTC one, if you are one who is careful your phone will last a long time, we have friends who have the Gfive G95 Bravo for over a year, and some who have the Gfive G9 for around 6 months, and they are working fine without any problems. Another friend of ours has a Samsung Galaxy S4 and it has been repaired twice,because he is clumsy and drops it all the time and handles it roughly. (I just hope he doesn’t read this :-P ) So the point is, it depends on the person as well….

  43. faisal bhai i am care full about phones but have a question that this is a cheap phone with so much in it means the machinary or other things used inside it are of cheap quality (china you know). or else it would have been expensive this is a suspecious thing which stops me from buying it………

    • See thats what people don’t understand, practically every electronic item is being made in China, major brands have their products manufactured in China, simply put not all Chinese things are of poor quality, they have different grades. For example take the Chinese phone Xiaomi its sales were greater than the iphones’ in China and its performance better than that of the S4. If you have read economics you would know that the more you produce something the cheaper it gets (simple supply and demand)…..China has virtually unlimited hr at their disposal and they have the ability to mass manufacture, which results in cheaper products…so don’t get scared thinking that all products from China are of poor quality. If you can afford to buy high end phones then by all means do so…the good thing about Qmobile Gfive and premium chinese phones is that they allow the people who cannot afford expensive phones to enjoy the majority of the features of high end phones at an affordable price. For instance if you were to buy a phone like the G9 or the THL W200 or the A900 you would be able to enjoy heavy games, which otherwise you would not have been able to play unless you bought a 40k+ smartphone.

  44. Hey Usman Bhai i have gfive g9 but apna Real Racing 3 download kaha se ki thi? mene ki but loading pr atak jata hay? or 2nd cheez iska protector kaha se buy karay or Covers?

  45. usman bhai , faisal bhai, that is one point the other are the comments of users many people appreciate this effort of gfive but some comments says something like. when i bought this phone the screen came out because its addhesive did not properly held it, or some says (this is a common issue) that after some time of usage it starts restarting on its own this is not the cause of mishandling. or the plastic quality is cheap (well that does not matter)….or its speaker dont work well after 2 months or so
    my second choice would be noir a10 because such unreliabilities are not present in q mobile
    sorry for bothering ya but i am a student and 15k means a lot to me so i want to be sure that what i am buying i will not regret about it
    thanks thanks alot…………….

  46. Us man bhai.apkai kayal mail Q mobile acha hai yeah g’five………
