Gfive G7 President Review

Gfive G7 President: More Value For Money

Left: G9 President and Right: G7 President

A couple of weeks ago Gfive launched their 5” smartphone the G7, it was to cater to those people who wanted a smartphone but with a smaller screen size as compared to the G9.  The smartphone in itself is a good device, but it’s the price that really sets it apart, being retailed at Rs.14,000. The G7 offers the most value for money it its class.

One more thing which must be said about the G7 is that its not an original Gfive, as is with Qmobile, Gfive has taken up the option of buying other brand smartphones and branding it as their own. Qmobile have done the same thing with their line up of smartphones. This time the G7 is actually a model of the “alps” Chinese brand.

Looking at the success of Qmobile, I guess they have taken up the same business model, except the price that Gfive is selling their co-branded smartphones is pretty reasonable as compared to Qmobile.

 

Build Quality:

The build quality of the Gfive G7 is good, although the encasing is mainly made of plastic, yet the overall look and feel is that of ceramic. The device has a 2000Mah battery, and supports 2 regular sims, which are on standby at all times.  As you can see it looks like a smaller version of the President G9, except that it does not have a true high definition screen. The display cover is made of scratch resistant material and comes pre-installed with a  screen protector.

The G7 has a 8 Mpixel rear camera and a 1.2Mpixel front camera, it has an external SD card support of upto 64GB.

 

O.S.

Since the G7 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 G7 capable of:

BenchMarks:

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 G7 performed quite well rendering at a constant 50 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 PresidentG7 should be able to handle heavy games pretty well.

  8. 2 ques . 1 . did you confirm ram of g7 because their website says 512 mb and y is the processor mtk 6589T . T is for turbo which is 1.5ghz

    • Yes we did, according to the official Gfive representative, RAM is 512mb, and processor is MTK6589 clocked at 1.2GHz, there seems to be a glitch with the Antutu benchmarking s/w.

  9. Assalamulkum usman bhi…..yeah mbl rawalpindi r islambad ma ni mil raha kub tak tak ya mbl ay ga i m excited……..

  10. usman bhai please tell me about its camera, is its camera is better or equivalent of g9 or is it bad like g95?

    • Liaqat We have other phones in pipeline before we review this. So I cannot give you certain date. Since its specs are same as Qmobile A500. So I believe the performance will be very much similar.

  11. Acha bhai jst last que i hope u will nt get irritated and que is k is ka camera g9 jesa hai ya bravo g95 ki trah bad hai.
    Thnkx in advance

      • Mr usman liaqat asked you about G7 camera and you are telling him about G9? please read ur readers comments and answer accordingly

        secondly , you are not able to clear the doubt of 512MB RAM and 1 GB RAM difference just makes me feel, you shud be compitent enough if you are reviewing the phone and u have it, but ur reviewer though even after smart experiences , just says software glitch with antutu, just made me Err on it, you could just show all these things, by just going to setting /Aplications, and show available and used RAM,

        btw u r helping people its gud, take my comments as a critique not a critisizer, just want ur work to be improved

        • Faizan , Please read Liaqat comment again I am qouting it here again

          “Acha bhai jst last que i hope u will nt get irritated and que is k is ka camera g9 jesa hai ya bravo g95 ki trah bad hai.
          Thnkx in advance”

          He asked about G9’s Camera. I am pretty sure :-) G7 has confired 512 MB RAM , We confirmed this with Gfive officially , Even in settings/applications it shows 1 GB RAM and that is because of software glitch in android system as well from gfive.

          Thanks for your critiques , We always value what our readers say.

          • well for the part of software glitches, yes i believe that it can happen, and sure few fake korean sets i have seen doing this, secondly it can be verified by installing few other things like CPU-Z quadrant, no software glitch can be made to beat all, i think it will help you to explain others how u say it is 512MB RAM, secondly

            i think i shud tell u in urdu
            liaqat says, bhai jan kia iska(G7) ka camera G9 jesa he(He meant to ask whether camera quality is like of G9 or bad like G95 which has same 8MP but the quality is quite bad.

            so it means he has already seen G9 quality but G7 is unknown to him, i think you got it now :)

          • Its camera is alright, but not the best. You CAN take pictures with it, but its obviously not a full fledged camera.

  12. salam sir…….kia ap bata skty k g7 ka camera result kasa ha ….. r g9 HD ha r g7 QHD what defferent……. r ya b bata da ma na suna ha k g10 b araha ha …..???kia aisa ha????

    • yes G10 is coming with Turbo processor but we dont have a date yet. G7 camera result is almost same as G9. but we dont have samples yet.

  13. hi sir.mai na ya phuchna k g7 ka camera kaisa ha kia ya Qmbl A500 k camery ki tarah ha ya g7 is better????

  14. I will rate the camera 9 out of 10 one thing i wish to add is the RAM installed is 512 rather than 1GB..

    • The only problem that annoyed me about this phone is that it only has 4GB Memory which will be used up very quickly. For Example, FIFA 14 takes more than 1GB space. The other thing is its 512 MB RAM.

        • usman bhai sd card ma kasa game install ho gi google playstore sa game phone memory ma hi aa sakti ha jo ka 1.7 gb ha ….

        • usman bhai google play store sa game phone memory ma hi ati ha . external sd card ma kasa install ho gi

  15. usman bhi plz ap ya baty k ya QHD kia quality ha???? kia ya b Hd ha ya lower????

  16. For GOD’s sake bhai plz video review upload b kr dein pura mnth ho raha hai nd camera review maximum time tq krna plz.

  17. yaar RAM kam ha boht. faida kia quad core ka jb ram kam ho. 1gb hone chahye the.Gaming me cpu se zaida RAM and GPU matter kartay hen. Like in sky mobiles they are dual cores laiken unme 1gb ram hen n unka GPU strong ha boht Adreno 220. ab ap uspay game chalo or G9 pe. dono baraber ke performance den gn. Quad core ka keh keh k logon ka dimag khrab kia hua ha just or koi baaat ni. Baki Gfive is better than Qmobile

  18. Sir G7 ki available ram kitni ha out of total ram for running apps. and multitasking

    tthanks

  19. Dear usman bhai i want to clarify one que which i asked about the g7 camera and

    Yes faizan is right main g7 k camera ka pta kr raha tha k kya g7 ka camera g9 ki trah acha hai ya g7 ka camera g95 ki trah tha.

  20. thanks usman bhai

  21. usman bhai 1 or cheez clear kar dein.. jasay samsung ka galaxy pro set ha os ki ram 512 mb ha but available 150 mb baki system apps na li hoti ha .. is ki kia 470 mb free ha phir tou yah set best ha multitasking ka lia. or is ka touch kasa ha

  22. Please share feedback once u hv handon experience on this cell. Please update if set hav lagging issue. Also share battery backup reviews
    Thanks

  23. Assalam-o-Alaikum

    i think the major difference b/w G9 and G7 is screen size and ram.
    G9.. 5.7″
    G7.. 5″
    and
    G9..1Gb Ram
    G7.. 512 Ram

    sir plz can u tell me whats the importance of ram in mobile? and what mobile i should buy G9 or G7. I m saving my pocket money since a long time and i want to buy a mobile which never disappoint me. I already have qmobile noir A10 but it stuck some times.

  24. Admin your screen shots of benchmark showing 975mb ram meand gfive g7 has 1gb ram but in specification you mentioned 512 ram please clear this cofusion…………..

  25. gfive g7 and huawie g610 ma sa kon sa best ha….. huawie honor 3c ka release ka mood nahi abhi pak main

  26. ma na gfive G7 ! gb ram wala lia ha… shopkeepers said ka 2 models aye thay ab 512 wala aa raha ha meri good luck ka mujhay 1 gb wala mila ha

    jo loog kah rahay ha 1gb ram ma ha woh bhi sachay ha or jo nahi mantay woh bhi sachay ha..kiun ka jis ko 1gb wala mila woh 1 gb kahay ga jis ko 512 wala mila woh bhi yahi kahay ga

    its true ka gfive g7 is value of money.. 14000…. or customer service bohat achi ha gfive ki q mobile suck

  27. USMAN BHAI,Kindly yeh bata saktae hain k qmobile A600 k OS ko update karvanae (jelly bean 4.2.1) k baad phone memory(usable) sirf 330mb kyun reh jati hai .jb k 4.1 pae phone memory 1.7 gb available hoti hai.

    • USMAN BHAI,Kindly yeh bata saktae hain k qmobile A600 k OS ko update karvanae (jelly bean 4.2.1) k baad phone memory(usable) sirf 330mb kyun reh jati hai .jb k 4.1 pae phone memory 1.7 gb available hoti hai.

    • It is strange that your bench mark show chipset MT6582 which is cheaper than original MT6589. Gfive has come up with cheaper version of mobile.

  28. :( mein ne g9 lia in 15000 but without memory card.. awesome mobile… best in every feature as compared to qmobile. BUT…
    I have lost my cell in market within 18 days. It was really superb set. I had been so upset even I couldn’t sleep for 2 nights. Now I m again gathering my savings to buy it again.

    • We have recently done a review of the Gfive ferrari A78, if you can get it in black it is a definite executive set with a price of 11K, otherwise most executive sets cost more, the A900 is stylish. The G7 is also an option.

  31. aslam u alekum uaman bahi plz tell me about the cam result of g five g7

  34. Sir Would You Do Me A Favour ?
    Please Check President G7 With Specific OTG Cable And Tell Me Whether It Supports OTG Functionality Or Not ? I,m Waiting . Love Your Reviews ;-)

  35. ebay.com pe iski ram 1gb show ho rhi hai iski asl me kitni ram hai? must reply

  36. Dear Concerned !

    I have been using President G7 since 2 months. So far the price is concerned its good enough, but I still have some problems that should be sorted out;
    1) Its showing 6MP Camera not 8MP
    2) When we update the Viber contact list from the phone directory, it shows dual phone number on phone directory i.e. Mobile :0300-11225588 and Viber +92300-11225588 hence the caller ID of the mentioned no. 0300-11225588 does not appear due to identical nature of no. on same phone directory, resultant we have to save each cell number with country code.
    3) RAM is not 1GB its 512GB
    4) When ever we refresh or restart cell than the applications installed / saved in SD Card vanished away from the main screen as well as applications list in setting, though SD Card storage remain the same i.e. SD Card 14GB with applications after restart / refresh remain 14GB but no signs of application will be appearing on the main menu.

    Hope some one will be here with solutions

    Regards
    Agha

    • Agha sab mera sath bhi same yahi problem tha.. phir ma na lhr warranty center ma dia after 20 to 22 days . onhon na mera set ok kar dia on ki shipment thori late thi….

  37. Sir, I have bought gfive g7, from metro Islamabad, its available both in 1GB ram and 512 GB, I have bought the 1GB ram. its written on the box 3g supported. but there is no option of 3g inside the settings. only settings of HRPD and LTE in the APN setting or GPRS settings. but it can not catch the signals of 3g. can you please review or check the phone for 3g support. its written every side of packing that 3g supported. even below the battery its written WCDMA tags.

  38. I recently bought a G5 president G7. Its fine but my warid signal stength is very poor on it. I cant send or receive sms/calls which i can do easily on any other phone in the same area.
    Plz help me…

    • Does the same problem occur with other network sims? If it does take it to gfive sales and service center, if not then I guess it has more to do with the sim and network than the phone.

  39. sir can you please tell me that how to install apps on SD card because mai ne storage SD card kiya hua hai but apps install internal memory mai hoti hai and wo full hogai hai to ab or apps install nae ho rhi .. !!
    can u please tell me how to do it ?

  40. How do you delete and add contacts on G7? I know it sounds like a really basic question but i can’t find the option anywhere.
