It seems that after its successful 'Selfistan' campaign with Bollywood star Alia Bhat focusing on the significance of a phone with a good front camera, Gionee seems to be taking its own philosophy a step ahead with its newly launched phone called Gionee S10 that has 4 cameras, 2 on the front and 2 on the back respectively.
Talking about Gionee, this Chinese-based smartphone company has made decent progress in the Indian and has also climbed the ladder of success in terms of sales and brand value quite quickly compared to Indian smartphone brands like Micromax and Karbonn, who are still reeling under the heavy influx of smartphone brands from China. The best thing about Gionee is the fact that it has not tried to do anything extraordinary and has rather chosen to focus on one thing at a time. Currently, this one thing seems to be the camera that plays a decisive role in boosting a smartphone brand's image.
Since the advent of front cameras or to selfie cameras, people of India has really gone crazy in terms of buying phones that have front cameras with higher resolution that will give them selfies of the highest quality. Although for a smartphone to create ripples across the market, needs a better processor and a cheaper price tag, but still seeing the selfie craze in India, it seems Gionee has struck the right chord.
Now coming back to the Gionee S10, the phone packs a combination of 16-megapixel and an 8-megapixel sensor camera set up on the back with a 6P lens and f/1.8 aperture. On the front, the device comes with a 20-megapixel and 8-megapixel sensor camera set up.
Other than the camera, the other significant thing about Gionee S10 is its 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) In-Cell display that runs on Amigo 4.0 operating system. With 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage, the Gionee S10 has a MediaTek Helio P25 processor that is considered as one of the best from the Taiwan-based processor company in terms of gaming and overall smartphone experience.
The build quality of the Gionee S10 can be defined as something that reflects style and elegance and something that clearly justifies the phone's price tag through its full metal unibody.
With a battery of 3450mah, the Gionee S10 will last a full day on a single charge only if the usage is on the moderate side and for those who prefer to use data on a heavy mode, which is quite obvious after the advent of Jio, it is advisable to carry a power bank or the charger.
Running on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat version along with Amigo OS 4.0, the Gionee S10 seems to be a perfect combination of build, power, and satisfaction.
The pricing of the phone in China is CNY 2,599, which comes around Rs 24,400 in Indian currency and if the phone is launched in India before Xiaomi MI6, then it definitely has a chance to surge ahead and create a niche for itself. After all, it is the world's first phone with dual cameras both on the front and back.
