Gionee F205 Pro Design And Display
The design and display of the Gionee F205 Pro are pretty basic and with nothing spectacular. It has a 5.45-inch 720p IPS LCD display with an 18:9 aspect ratio which leaves more than enough room at the top for the front-facing camera. The bottom bezel has the Gionee name written on it. There is also a dual antenna line at the top and at the bottom of the smartphone.
The fingerprint sensor takes its position at its usual spot – centre of the device’s back – with the rear camera as well as the LED flash taking up a position at the top left corner. Obviously, the device is made of plastic with a 2.5D curved glass on top of the display for screen protection. Colour options available are Blue, Black and Gold.
