Unboxing Gionee S11 Lite – Best Mid-range Device to Buy in 2020

It’s true that Gionee phones are no longer being produced, but the brand still has some really nice phones out there in the market with reasonably decent features as they are considered Mid-range devices. In this post, we are going to be reviewing the Gionee S11 Lite smartphone I got from Jumia about a week ago.
This post will analyze the device specifications, key features as well as performance-based on hands-on experience so far, so let’s get started.
 
The Gionee S11 Lite camera is the main feature the company was marketing the phone on. It packs a dual rear camera of 13MP and 2MP for autofocus, while for the selfie camera, it features 16MP which is reasonably okay. I have taken some pictures with both cameras and from my experience with the cameras, it is as good as they say it is. The rear camera also has night mode support for taking clear photos in a dark room. Below you would find some pictures I took with a device.

 

 
Moving on, I must confess, what caught my eyes before getting the phone was its storage. It features 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. The phone comes in 2 variants one with 32GB storage and the latter with 64GB storage. One thing I noticed right out of the box was that the 4GB RAM promised only has about 2.61GB usable, which is a huge reduction from the specified parameter. 
 
In terms of display, the S11 Lite features a 5.7-inch with an 18.9 aspect ratio. Quite portable for people who don’t enjoy big screens. It runs on Android 7.1.1 and also supports 4G LTE networks. It is a dual SIM device and is powered by a 3030mAh battery capacity. Below is a highlight os the key features of the device. The phone is a budget device and costs about N34000 on Jumia.
