    About the Phone

    Pros:

    • It has excellent build quality.
    • It has satisfactory battery life.
    • It has a decent set of cameras and a great selfie shooter.
    • The display is excellent.

     

    Cons:

    • The phone’s software has bloating issues.
    • It can sometimes have a heating problem if used for long periods.
    • Cannot delete preinstalled apps.
    • The front camera doesn’t perform too well in low-light conditions.

     

    The Gionee S6s is a good-looking phone with a sturdy body and a good battery life and display qualities. If you need a phone mainly for gaming, watching videos and indulging in clicking selfies during the day, this phone is suited for you.

    The Gionee S6s has a starting price of Rs. 7,190 and is available in two colours, Latte Gold and Mocha Gold. the phone is designed for selfie lovers and has a 13MP rear camera with dual LED flash and an 8MP front camera with an LED flash.

    The phone feels sturdy when you hold it in your hands. While the phone is a bit heavy, the metallic unibody design of the S6s is impressive. A Gold lining runs throughout the corners at the back of the handset that gives it a premium feel. The bottom of the screen has three capacitive buttons for Back, Home, and Recent, and the front camera on the top is accompanied by an LED flash along with a proximity sensor.

    The rear panel has the rear camera with an LED flash too. At the bottom of the camera is the fingerprint scanner and at the end of the back panel is the speaker grille.

    The left side of the panel has the sim slots where are the right side has the power button and the volume rocker buttons. The bottom of the phone has the regular Micro-USB charging slot and a 3.5mm audio jack.

    The phone has a 5.5-inch Full HD display of 1080×1920 pixel resolution and comes with Corning Gorilla Glass. The display proved to be vibrant and sharp with great colour display. The display wasn’t reflective and was decently readable under direct sunlight. The viewing angles were good, which made the device perfect for gaming and viewing videos. The screen responds to touch exceptionally well, and the brightness was excellent indoors as well as outdoors.

    The Gionee S6s has an octa-core MediaTek processor which clocks at 1.3GHz. It operates on the company’s own Amigo UI v3.2 on top of Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). The S6s offers an inbuilt storage of 32GB, out of which you get around 26GB for usage. The storage can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. 

    The UI is also packed with apps such a Mood Wallpaper and Theme Park. The phone is also preloaded with some third party applications like Truecaller, Instagram, UC Browser, and Messenger. Sadly, none of these apps can be uninstalled, which is a little annoying. This phone also has the option of gesture control which allows you to draw shapes or signs on the standby screen and perform certain functions such as opening the camera, using the torch, etc. 

    The fingerprint scanner can be used to unlock the phone and click pictures as well. Using this feature is easy since it is good at detecting fingerprints and barely misses.

    While the quality of the phone call was decent, we did face some network issues in some areas. The speaker quality is mostly good but may sound a little muffled sometimes.

    The Gionee S6s is equipped with a 13MP rear camera with dual LED flash and an 8MP front camera with an LED flash. The front camera is great for selfies in right lighting conditions, and the image quality was impressive with good colour reproduction and clarity.  In low-light, the images turn out a little hazy, but there’s a solution for that too. The Face Beauty 2.0 in the S6s is there to help you tune your images for desired results.

    A 3150mAh non-removable battery backs this phone. During the video loop tests, the battery lasted for approximately 13 hours, which is a good result. The screen time was around 3.5 hours, and with moderate usage, the battery lasted a day and a half. The Gionee S6s takes almost two and a half hours to charge fully with the 2A rated bundled charger.

    To sum it up, while the Gionee S6s has no significant issues in its functioning, it is satisfactory when it comes to multitasking, style and display. However, since Gionee has positioned this phone as a great choice for selfie lovers, the camera doesn’t suffice when it comes to low-light photos. Within this price range, there are strong competitors in the market such as OPPO F1s, Lenovo ZUK Z1 and the Moto 4G Plus, which offer better cameras to its users.
