Way to go. Most of others just shamefully stomp in Apple's footsteps. BTW & by my opinion, useless innovation.

last time I hear them is when they release smartphone with 5.1mm thickness.. its good to see them trying something unique rather than copying other (but can they survive :-/)

WHAT IS THE POINT OF RUNNING A FULL BLOWN OS ON A FLIP PHONE???
It's not productive, it's un-necessary and it's RIDICULOUS...
4 Gigs of RAM, Great Scot...
Why not use a Nokia Symbian or even S40, give it a 2,500mAh juicer just so it'll last for a whole bloody week or two?
It's crazy, it's ridiculous, it's preposterous, it's foolish, it's worthless, it's... (Narrator: And the whining goes on and on...)

Regardless of whether this implementation is actually useful or not, the company must still be commended for their daring

This phone reminds me of the LG Chocolate

Two 4.2" displays! Must be really looong when flipped out.

If made by a real manufacturer, I'd absolutely sport this phone.

Samsung has made several Android flip phones with high end specs...

It's a good company whose phones are available in India with some very good specs

Dude nothing from China works on Verizon LTE. They're almost always GSM unlocked thats why I myself never ever even consider switching to a CDMA company because I love Chinese phones and they would never work here in the U.S.

article is aimed for Samsung phone owners. All Samsung series from A-Z basically have the same ole look since the GS2. give or take a bump where the camera is positioned.

And Sony, and Apple, and for a good while HTC. Once phone makers find a signature aesthetic, they rarely change it drastically. The same is true for cars, appliances, whatever. That's always been the case. And really, it makes sense. Once a signature look is associated with your brand, why mess that up by introducing something completely foreign to the design language you are known for?

Having been a BlackBerry user for years I have never felt quite at home with 100% iPhone style phones. But change has come. This could be a good compromise. And it would certainly be noticed here in the USA.

PhoneArena writer Mr. Victor H.
If you don't know much about Gionee that doesn't mean nobody else does. Gionee is far more recognized in countries like India and China. Even some phones made by Gionee are re-branded and sold in USA.
Please keep this in mind before you start your next article about Gionee.

That is quite an interesting design, I wonder how practical it is though, though still a good idea.
