We've conducted a detailed review of the Gionee X1s, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Gionee X1s's features, performance, reviews

Gionee X1s's camera specs

Gionee X1s has a 13 MP main camera, which can take very high-resolution photos and videos. While you might feel a little dissatisfied when you need better resolution for landscape photography or want to print high-definition photographs, you will be satisfied most of the time.

Gionee X1s has an 16 MP front camera, which is a fairly high figure. Photos taken with this camera will not appear rough even when you print them, so you will be fairly satisfied with the quality of this camera.

Gionee X1s's battery performance

The battery performance of the Gionee X1s is 4000mAh, and which is an unusually large capacity. Compared to other smartphones, the Gionee X1s has an unusually long battery life. At this amount you will be sufficiently pleased with the battery life. Even if you watch movies for a long time or play games, you will not have much trouble with the battery.

Gionee X1s's size

The Gionee X1s has a width of 2.9inches (73.5mm), a length of 5.9inches (150.4mm), and a thickness of 0.35inches (8.8mm). It might be possible to operate it with one hand, but depending on the person it might feel big. In addition, the weight of the Gionee X1s is about 5.8oz (166g). You can feel some weight when holding it in one hand. You might feel tired if you operate it for a long time.

Assessing the overall ease of holding the Gionee X1s, it has some difficulties but if you use it based on its strengths and weaknesses it will not cause many issues.

Gionee X1s's screen

Gionee X1s has a 5.2 inch display. It is large enough and you will rarely encounter issues due to the screen size. However, note that it is not very suited for writing long text.

Gionee X1s has a mid-range screen. It is OK for normal use, but if you want to enjoy photos, videos, or games at their best, you may feel dissatisfied.

Gionee X1s's CPU specs

With the 1.5GHz×4(Quad core) for processing power, the Gionee X1s has relatively high performance. Among all smartphones released to date, its performance is positioned between high level and middle class, but you won't feel any stress using most apps. For lighter 3D games you will almost always be able to play without complaint. And for 2D gaming you will probably feel hardly any stress.

With 3GB of RAM, the Gionee X1s has a sufficient amount. Very occasional cases of insufficient RAM do occur, but with this sort of amount of RAM, it will rarely be the cause of feeling any stress.

Evaluating the overall speed of operation of the Gionee X1s, it is a mid-range smartphone, and in everyday use operation doesn't feel very jumpy or jerky, but to enjoy games, movies and the like a grade higher smartphone is recommended.

Gionee X1s's storage size

The data storage capacity of the Gionee X1s is 16GB, and while it is enough for taking photos, it might feel insufficient for those who often shoot videos or who install many games.

The Gionee X1s is compatible with SD cards, so it is possible to increase the capacity easily. Therefore, you probably do not need to be concerned with the storage capacity.

Gionee X1s's general rating

The Gionee X1s is a relatively capable smartphone. If used as the main smartphone, it may be somewhat inconvenient for everyday use, but it is at a generally acceptable level.
