At the Price point 13K, I love to talk about Motorola’s Moto G at this price tag. The Moto G is really exceptional smartphone with exceptional price. There are so many reasons you would prefer to buy Moto G expect other phone at this price point. And the only thing that disappoints people not to buy Moto G is lack of support of memory card. But sacrificing only this one feature, you will get latest Android operating system, brightest display at this price point and so on. I am not saying that Gionee CTRL V5 is not a good smartphone, but the point is, if you launch a smartphone with a price tag that nearly stands price tag of Moto G then people are not even going to look at other smartphone.
On the other hand if the 8-megapixel camera of Gionee CTRL V5 performed really well, then maybe it can hit the Moto G popularity.
