Build and Screen

These phones do not digress from what you’d expect of a budget device in terms of build quality. While they are not shabby, they are nowhere near the most elegant. They are just there. A measurement of 8.8 mm puts them somewhat on the thicker side. But then, you may not really complain, knowing how much you are paying.

Both the Gionee X1 and X1s come with HD (720 x 1,280 pixel) displays. While the standard variant rocks a 5-inch IPS panel, the latter sports a 5.2-incher. This means the X1 should offer slightly sharper images.

Camera and Storage

The Gionee X1s looks to provide better image quality. This is because it features a 13MP rear and 16MP front camera combo. It is safe to assume that the target segment for this one is that of selfie enthusiasts.

In its own case, the X1 offers 8MP sensors on both its front and back. It should perform well for an entry-level phone, judging by this setup.

Hardware and Software

Gionee equips the X1 with a 3,000mAh battery, while the juicer on the X1s has a bigger 4,000mAh capacity. The phones support super fast 4G LTE with Voice over LTE (VoLTE) feature.
