The sparkly back of the Gionee S11 Lite was the main thing to catch our eye. Gionee considers it a "bent 3D smooth body," yet it's really plastic and feels like it. The back is likewise a unique mark magnet and you should wipe it continually to keep it looking great.

The Gionee S11 Lite games a 5.7-inch show with HD+ determination. Gionee could have decided on a full HD+ board since that is the thing that the greater part of the opposition offers at this cost. In any case, despite everything, it has a great difference and the survey edges are conventional.

Gionee S11 Lite execution, cameras, and battery life 

The Snapdragon 430 processor driving this cell phone isn't the most intense accessible at this value point. It is a similar processor that was utilized for a year ago's Moto G5 (Review), and we have seen numerous models that are all the more ground-breaking from that point forward. The processor functions admirably enough for essential errands, yet substantial applications and amusements will take more time to stack.

We played Clash Royale and Asphalt 8, and keeping in mind that the previous did not have any issues, Asphalt 8 took longer than regular to stack. We ran benchmarks on the S11 Lite and it scored 57,738 in AnTuTu, and 660 and 2485 individually in Geekbench's single-center and multi-center tests. In the designs benchmark 3DMark Slingshot, it figured out how to score 536, while conveying 24fps in GFXBench T-Rex.

In our battery circle test, the cell phone figured out how to clock 12 hours and 46 minutes. With our use comprising of messages and a functioning WhatsApp account, the S11 Lite could get past one day. You should connect it to by the following morning. We observed substantial battery deplete when gaming.

The camera application on the S11 Lite has numerous modes that you can look over. Aside from the typical Photo and Video modes, it has Bokeh, Face Beauty, Group Selfie, Pro, and a Card mode to enable you to check business cards. The telephone is eased back to change to Bokeh mode, and the Pro mode just gives you essential controls.

Sunlight photographs taken with the S11 Lite were great, and you will just notice lost detail on the off chance that you zoom in. It rushes to set the presentation and bolt center. The Auto HDR mode rushes to kick in, however, the impact isn't right and shots tend to look overexposed. It rushes to center when shooting macros and oversees better than average isolating between the subject and the foundation. We observed macros to be somewhat oversaturated. While shooting in bokeh mode we found that it takes more time to change to this mode. Additionally, photographs set aside a more drawn out opportunity to process when shooting. The edge recognition is average for the selfie camera, however, is marginally better for the back camera.

Photographs taken in low light needed detail and showed up somewhat delicate. Zoom in to a picture and you will see curios caused by over the top commotion lessening. The 16-megapixel selfie camera on the S11 Lite takes good selfies in common light. You likewise have a beautification alternative which you can use to smoothen skin. Shots turn out looking normal if there's a fake light source close-by, however in low light, they miss out on detail. The screen streak is excessively diminished, making it impossible to have any huge effect. Video recording maxes out at 1080p for the front and also the back cameras. It needs Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) so you should keep your hand relentless while recording.


The Gionee S11 Lite is the principal cell phone in the S-arrangement to wear an 18:9 viewpoint proportion screen. It looks decent and will get eyeballs when you are utilizing it. Sadly, the equipment isn't the best at this value point. Cell phones, for example, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (Review) and the Realme 1 (Review) offer better equipment at bringing down costs. The Gionee S11 Lite is a disconnected select cell phone so it may work for individuals who need to contact and feel a telephone before they get it. On the off chance that you like the manner in which the S11 looks, you can let it all out. In the event that you need better an incentive for your cash, you ought to consider the lower estimated alternatives named above or investigate the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro which perform better around a similar value point.
