In the mobile world, it is very common to copy successful phones over and over again. But this time, a manufacturer was inspired not by one phone, but by two. On top of that, he threw a second screen on the back and a headphone jack. But, don’t let the lock screen wallpaper fool you. In terms of performance, this piece is very far from the iPhone …
Gionee has been known for copying the brands of famous manufacturers for a long time. But the final product always “finishes” in its own way. Last time we showed you a copy of the iPhone 13 Pro running Harmony OS. This time you can take a look Gionee F3 Pro, which combines the iPhone 14 body shape with the cameras that the brand previewed on the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. Although we can consider a lot of smartphones these days as iPhone copies, Gionee topped it off with the same background we know from press renders of the iPhone 14 Pro.

Of course, the illusion isn’t perfect this time either. The phone has a much larger chin below the screen, and it looks like the brand didn’t know how to make a screen with a pill hole. That’s why I settled on a panel with a centered selfie camera cutout. The 60Hz panel itself measures 6.5 inches and has “cool” sunlight readability modes, but even that doesn’t hide the fact that it’s not an OLED or Retina display.
The cameras are fake, and the performance is poor
The design of the rear photo module was similar to that of the Xiaomi 11 Ultra, but this is where all the similarities end. At first glance, you can of course guess the three cameras on the back, which have the same placements as in the last generation iPhones, but only one 21MP sensor works. And we have no great illusions about the second screen, whose specifications are unknown. Apparently, it can only display the current time, or forget about taking pictures with the back screen or notifications.

Unfortunately, we know what’s inside the phone, and that’s really disappointing. Performance is provided by the Unisoc T610 chipset with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and the battery capacity is just 3,900mAh. The phone is running Android this time, but the manufacturer (on purpose?) doesn’t mention the exact version of the system, so it’s possible that it’s already an outdated version. Sometimes imitation phones work just fine, but this time Gionee really missed it. Or let’s ask another question, would you pay 4500 CZK for this phone in the Czech Republic after the transfer?
