Gionee S11 Summary and Introduction

Gionee S11 has joined the likes of Gionee M7 and M7 Power in the list of bezel-less phones that was produced by the Chinese phone maker in 2017. The device has a similar look as the Tecno Phantom 8 in terms of body design.

The Gionee S11 has four cameras in total; two upfront and two at the back with LED flash to complement. It uses the 18:9 screen ratio which literally makes no room for navigation keys, the fingerprint scanner is located at the back.

The midrange smartphone also boasts of an Octa-core processor that clocks at 2.5 GHz. The Gionee S11 which is an update to the S10 sure gives true value for little money.

The Gionee S10 awed many with its quad camera setup. You can expect same on the Gionee S11, although its maker decided lower resolution is the way this time. The Gionee S11 packs a combo of 16MP and 5MP sensors on its back. It boasts autofocus and 1080p video recording capability.

While Gionee cut the resolution of the secondary shooter on the rear, it is the main unit that sheds some pixels on the front. The Gionee S11 combines a 16MP and an 8MP sensor on the front. What it offers in the camera department remains pretty impressive all the same.

Design

Definitely a stunner and would turn heads at any gathering, its metallic chassis unibody was designed to perfection. It has almost the same ‘Diamond Fire’ body as seen on the Tecno Phantom 8. The sleek design on the Gionee S11 reflects light in the most subtle way. It measures 7.8 mm slim, making it very comfortable to hold and flaunt. The stunning device weighs just 165g and available in Moonlight Blue, Space Gold and Cherry Powder colors.

If you thought the Gionee S10 was huge, then expect a bigger colossus in this follow-up. The Gionee S11 measures an entire 5.99 inches in diagonal size. It certainly looks more attractive (or so we think) with its diamond rear design. While a tad thicker at 7.8 mm, it is lighter than its predecessor at 165 grams.

The Gionee S11 IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display occupies approximately 74.7% of the smartphone body, setting the screen display size at 5.99 inches with screen resolution at 1080 by 2160 pixel and screen density, PPI at 403 pixel per inch.

Gionee is pushing the full view display as one of the key specifications of the smartphone. Just like the TECNO Camon CM, the S11 Lite has a 5.7 IPS capacitive display and a 75.1% screen to body ratio. Its resolution is measured at 720*1440.
