Gionee X1 & Gionee X1s Full Review, Specifications & Pricenigeriantech


Regardless of the fact that this is an affordable device, the standards of quality did not come down. And the gold or black cover back of this smartphone makes it just there to look at i can say it is a fine phone at all around.

A measurement of 8.8mm placed them on the thicker side in terms of quality. Also considering the budget and all that, it is good to have in mind that Both the Gionee X1 and X1s come with HD (720 x 1,280 pixel) displays.

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

Since the Gionee X1s provides better image quality, how this is possible is because it features a 13mp rear and 16mp front camera combination. I can say for a fact that the main target market for this brand are obviously kids who are (selfie enthusiasts).

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.
