Gionee S10 Lite is yet another selfie-centric smartphone in the market. The device is a cut-down variant of the Gionee S10 as far as specifications are concerned. The device sports a metal unibody design and features a fingerprint sensor which is positioned at the front; embedded in the home button. It can be used to unlock the device in less than 0.5 seconds and also, one can record multiple fingerprints.
For image lovers, the smartphone is equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera which along with an LED flash can be used to capture low-light shots and videos. Being a selfie-centric smartphone, the handset is armed with a powerful front-facing shooter. At the front, for selfies and video calling, the device comes with a 16-megapixel front-facing shooter.
The Gionee S10 Lite is fuelled by a non-removable Li-Ion 3,100mAh battery which can last throughout the day with moderate usage, and the company claims that it can support talk time up to 8 hours. There is 32GB of onboard storage space on the Gionee S10 Lite which can further be expanded using a microSD card up to 256GB. Thus you have plenty of space to store all that you want from apps to personal files and data.
The Gionee S10 Lite is 7.9 mm thick and weighs 155 grams. Under the hood, there is a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 427 processor which is coupled with 4GB of RAM to ensure fast and seamless performance even when you are working on multiple apps at the same time or playing graphics-intensive games like Asphalt 8 or Modern Combat. On the software front, the device runs the proprietary Amigo 4.0 OS wrapped under Android 7.1 Nougat.
The Gionee S10 Lite is a step down from the S10. The device boasts a 5.2-inch HD IPS display which is decent and not overwhelming. The screen is also paired with decent viewing angles that make videos look crisp. However, when outdoors especially under bright light, the display on the smartphone tends to fade away. The screen on the S10 Lite is protected by a coating of Corning’s Gorilla Glass. Connectivity options on the smartphone include 4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2, and a microUSB 2.0 port.
