Design is another area where Gionee excels. The S6s has a unibody design with a glass front and metal back. At 166 grams, it does feel a tad overweight for a 5.5-inch device but the fantastic build quality and design are redeeming factors.
On the right-hand side are the volume and power button while the camera module and fingerprint sensor is on the back. Thanks to the slight curve on the back, the phone fits comfortably in the hand. What we did not like was that the capacitive buttons for home, back and recent were not backlit.
Good video recording:
The primary 13MP camera is no slouch either. It uses a Sony sensor with f2.0 aperture and 5p lens. It captures images with high detail and rich colour in daylight and surprised us with better-than-expected images in low-light. Some low light images did have visible noise and soft details when viewed on a larger screen. The focus and shutter speed is zippy and you get multiple modes to play with including a professional mode with manual controls.
We've seen a lot of Gionee phones with good camera performance. The S6S takes things a step further because it gives you top-notch selfies with a wide-angle 8MP front camera. The front camera has an f2.2 aperture with a 5p lens and features a front flash as well as an option of screen flash.
In our usage, we found that the images taken with front camera were actually higher quality than expected — good details, vivid colour and minimal noise. Even in low light, the camera managed to take selfies with sharp details (without using the flash) — good enough to share on social media.
In very low light, you can always use the front LED flash. The company says that the flash has a high CRI (color rendering index) — essentially, it measures the accuracy of a light source to show the subject in truer colours. The flash helps in low light scenarios like in a pub or club.
It comes with friend 3.2 computer programme supported humanoid 6.0. as was common with friend, there's no app drawer with all icons and widgets area unit placed on numerous home panels. A smart, auto-sort perform helps categorize apps into folders for easy use.
Other handy options baked into the interface embody a customisable centre, completely different multi-tasking screens (card or native style), guest mode, gestures, a virtual suspend button, file manager, child mode, mobile anti-theft and a system manager for junk file cleansing and app management. the sole factor we tend to didn't like was that there was no choice to uninstall a number of the preloaded apps just like the video editor, wallpaper changer and Gstore.
The Gionee S6 has all the elements of an excellent smartphone. It packs a punch mainly because of its powerful configuration and slim design. The other aspects of the phones meet the standards of quality smartphones; however for a non-branded phone the price is on a higher side.
