Like the S11, the Gionee S11s also offers you a whopping four cameras! It even promises more impressive shots with the sensors it comes with. Selfie snappers will be more than well served with a 20MP and 8MP combo on the front, at least on paper.

The dual rear camera system is also better. You get a 16MP sensor and another 8MP sensor working together to serve up potentially share-worthy images. It features autofocus, LED flash and Full HD video recording capability.

Hardware and Software

On the inside, the Gionee S11s packs an octa-core Helio P30 chipset featuring four 2.3GHz and four 1.65 Cortex-A53 CPUs. It looks to provide solid performance and impressive multitasking then, especially with 6GB RAM on offer. A Mali-G71 GPU holds promise of smooth gaming.


Internal storage of 64 GB looks to be sufficient for majority of users, especially those who are not app or movie freaks. If you need more space, the phone takes up to 256GB capacity microSD card. The Gionee S11s boots Android 7.1 Nougat with a coating of Amigo 5.0 skin.


Other Specs and Features

For juice supply, the Gionee S11s comes with a slightly higher capacity 3,600mAh Li-Po battery, compared to the S11’s 3,410mAh unit. You will find a fingerprint scanner on the rear for adding extra protection to personal data. There is support for super-fast LTE connectivity, good news if mobile data speed is a key thing for you.
