The phone has a 5.5-inch screen with HD (1280*720) resolution with a PPI of 267. The screen, however, has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and is a Super AMOLED Display which is of better quality compared to the cheaper IPS LCD display.

We would have loved a Full HD resolution in this price range considering a lot of smartphones now days have FHD display even in the 10K price range.

The Gionee S Plus is powered by the MediaTek Octa-Core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz. The smartphone offers fast multi-tasking with 3 GB Ram.

The Gionee S Plus runs on the Android Lollipop 5.1 OS along with custom Gionee UI Amigo 3.1.

The storage is 16 GB for the S Plus, and it can be further expanded to 64 GB using a micro-sd card.

Gionee smartphones have been great with Camera, especially the Gione Elife 7 was one of the best devices with an uber-cool camera.

The Gionee S Plus has a 13-megapixel rear camera with Autofocus and Led flash. The front camera is a 5-megapixel fixed focus wide angle lens camera for clicking selfies.

The Gionee S Plus offers a massive 3150 mAH battery capacity which is good for all-day usage without the need for jacking the smartphone to the wall.

Further, it offers a lot of positive features for the price like USB Type C Port, Facial recognition, 3 GB RAM, and a good battery.

It falls short on the Display front with an HD screen, FHD would have been a cherry on the cake.

We would wait a little more to check out the camera quality and more detailed analysis before clicking the buying button.
