Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Gionee S12

Gionee S12's size

The Gionee S12 is 3.0 inches (76.6 mm) wide, 6.5 inches (164.6 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (8.8 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Gionee S12, it weighs about 181 oz (181 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the Gionee S12, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Gionee S12's screen

The Gionee S12 has a 6.52 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The resolution of the Gionee S12's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of Gionee S12

The 1.8GHz+1.5GHz×8(OctaCore) processing speed of the Gionee S12 is on the higher side, so it should be able to run most apps with no problems. The performance of this phone is at a high level when compared to others released on the market so far. You can play a comparatively large amount of 3D games with next to no issues.

The Gionee S12 has 4GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The Gionee S12 has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Gionee S12's storage capacity

The Gionee S12 has 64GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Gionee S12 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

The camera function of Gionee S12

The Gionee S12 has a 16 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Gionee S12 is equipped with a rather powerful 13 MP front camera. The photos turn out quite well since they don't look grainy even when you print them out.

Overall assessment of Gionee S12

The Gionee S12 is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
