The design concept of the Gionee S6s is one of the highlights of the smartphone. The smartphone features a metallic back cover and has a very profile (just 8.3 mm)

It really feels good to hold the smartphone and I really like the solid build.


Operating System: Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)



Internal Memory: 32 GB

Micro SD: Yes, up to 256 GB

A Octa-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53 chipset powers the Gionee S6s and this is coupled with 3 GB of RAM. The setup is awesome and the software, thus runs flawlessly on the smartphone.

The Gionee S6s runs Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box. The OS is really interesting, and by that I don’t mean good interesting. Gionee took a minimalistic approach with the S6s and the smartphone features rather basic customization.

The software is a bit challenging to use since there is no shortcut to access commonly used features such as Wi-Fi and brightness control. However, you get used to it after a while. But all in all, I feel like Gionee could have done a better job with the software.


Rear Camera: 13 MP

Secondary Camera: 8 MP

LED Flash: Yes
