Hello! Guys, Today, I’m going to take a look at Gionee S10. It is one of the top-end models from the company this year. It comes with four cameras in total, making it unique among the other dual camera flagships in the market. So, Gionee S10 has two (Dual) cameras on the front and as well as two at the back to ensure the phone is capable of capturing amazing selfies as well as bokeh photos from both the camera setups.
Display & Design: –
The Design of Gionee S10 takes inspiration from iPhone 7 Plus. It is very similar to the Apple model, including the horizontal arrangement of the Dual Camera setup at the back. The phone is made out of the metal unibody and the back looks refine, thanks to the antenna lines that are hidden along the top bottom edges. Gionee S10 comes with 5.5-inch 1080p LTPS IPS LCD display.
It is thin at7.35mm but heavy at178 grams. There are four color options available for the phone right now- cherry gold, dark night black, Indigo gray blue, Primrose Green. Even the front is quite iPhone-like. You have dual cameras on top as well as a soft LED flash.
Below the Display, you have got a fingerprint sensor. Specifications have never really been the highlight of Gionee top-end smartphones.
The camera is definitely the highlight of Gionee S10. The Company has included four cameras in total two at the back and two up front. The rear setup consists of, 16-megapixels primary sensor + 8-megapixels secondary sensor. Other features include a 6P lens and F/1.8 aperture. The Company notes that it has worked on the sensor to improve low-light photography significantly. So, you can expect less noise in the night time pictures.
As for the front camera, the phone comes with 20-megapixels + 8-megapixel setup. There’s a selfie flash, beside the front camera setup as well. Now, expect to capture some great bokeh images with the cameras on Gionee S10. The company wants you to take SLR level depth of field pictures with its camera but we’ll have to play with it first to see how good the cameras are.
The Company tends to go with the mid-range processor and generous RAM and storage. The same strategy has been applied here as Gionee S10 comes with a 2.5GHz Helio P25 Octa-Core Chipset with 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Please keep in mind that Helio P25 isn’t really a flagship chip we have seen many mid-rangers from local Chinese companies, like Elephone and Doogee feature this chipset. It’s pretty good for a mid-ranger.
As for the software, the phone comes with AMIGO 4.0, based on Android 7.0 Nougat. Artificial intelligence is integrated into the software, but we aren’t sure how exactly it would help users in day to day life.
There is a pretty decent 3450 mAh capacity battery inside. You should be good enough for a day.
Gionee S10 is not a cheap flagship and its price is about 2500 Yuan for 6GB + 64GB model. It is about $380 and 25,000 Indian rupees.
