In a way, the Gionee S8 may be considered a ‘poor man’s’ iPhone 6S. The ultra-slim device shows off an elegant, premium design, while offering midrange-to-high-end specifications, including a massive Full HD AMOLED display, an octa-core processor, very generous RAM, and a fingerprint scanner.

Design and Display

Perhaps, one may be forgiven to say the Gionee S8 represents another classic iPhone cloning attempt by a Chinese phone manufacturer.

It bears somewhat unmistakable semblance to the Apple device. The sleek body features metal and measures just 7 millimetres in thickness.

The Gionee Elife S8 crams in a stunning 5.5-inch AMOLED display, which essentially makes it a bigger iPhone. The screen has a Full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels for awesome viewing.

This display supports pressure-sensitive 3D Touch technology like the iPhone 6S. You will be able to perform a variety of functions by applying different levels of pressure on the screen.

Camera and Storage

In the Gionee S8 you find a smartphone that looks ready to generate spectacular images. On the rear is a robust 16-megapixel sensor with wide-angle lens and speedy phase detection and laser autofocus.

Turn the device around and you will see another 8-megapixel snapper which, from the look of things, should serve up awesome wide-angle selfies.

You get abundant onboard storage of 32GB or 64GB capacity – sufficient for the needs of many users. MicroSD storage expansion of up to 200 GB is also supported for good measure.

Power and Performance

On the inside, the Gionee S8 comes with an octa-core MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 processor pacing along at an impressive speed of 1.9 GHz. The robust chip is married to abundant 4 GB of RAM for fluid performance and glitch-free gaming.

HTC’s own Amigo OS 3.2, which is based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, provides the platform for the phablet to play on.

Other Features

The Gionee S8 will have juice supplied to it by a large 3,000mAh Li-Ion battery. It has a fingerprint scanner embedded in its Home button for extra security and ease of use.

The Gionee S8 phablet supports dual SIM functionality and 4G LTE connectivity. One thing some users will be impressed by is that this device supports dual WhatsApp accounts, enabling you use the messaging app with different numbers simultaneously.

Pricing and Availability

Gionee S8 is not yet available in Nigeria or Kenya. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. Gionee S8 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from 100,000 to 150,000 Naira depending on your location in Nigeria.
