If there is an area where Gionee usually does well with its devices it is probably design. The phone looks sleek and clean and is a bit slim at about 8.3 mm. But the Gionee M6s Plus is rather bulky at 213 grams in weight.

Gionee M6s Plus offers 64GB integrated storage space, extendable up to 256 GB via a dedicated microSD slot.
Performance and OS
At least on paper, the Gionee M6s Plus is a solid performer. It is armed with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 chipset, with four cores running at 1.95 GHz and another four at 1.44 GHz.
