2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 7 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Good, eye-catching looks, good build quality, and a premium finish
  • The plastic based back cover also makes the device incredibly light and easy to carry, which is something that will be appealing to the consumers who like light-weight phones
  • The curves on the sides add to the overall look of the phone, and it's mostly because of the curved sides that the phone seems relatively easier to hold and operate with one hand
  • The rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is extremely fast and take milliseconds to unlock the phone - apart from unlocking the phone, the fingerprint sensor also lets users click selfies
  • A lot of the phones in this price bracket now have metal bodies, so the plastic construction of the S11 Lite is a bit of a downer
  • The plastic rear panel of the S11 Lite also sports a reflective glassy look, which at first glance seems attractive, but, later on, tends to collect a lot of smudges

Display

  • Nice, modern 'FullView' 18:9 display - produces decent colours, which are reasonably punchy and vibrant - also has fairly good viewing angles and brightness levels
  • The screen is good, but the resolution could have been better - a lot of the competitors now have 1080p displays
  • Also, unlike the Redmi Note 5 Pro, the Gionee S11 Lite isn't a true bezel-less phone, even though it has the modern 18:9 display ratio

Software

  • Runs on Android Nougat which is now getting old

Performance

  • The Amigo UI on top of Android is also not the most optimised - it tends to lag with heavy multi-tasking (that aside, performance is ok though)

Camera

  • Pretty decent front camera - selfies shot in indoor situations are sharp and detailed too
  • Decent bokeh mode with both the dual rear cameras, and the front camera
  • Average dual camera setup on the rear - while the bokeh shots are decent - the cameras are average in regular use - pictures often lack details, and colours sometimes tend to go wrong - it can't match the high benchmark for budget phone camera set by the likes of the Redmi Note 5 Pro

Battery

  • Good battery life - comfortably lasts the day with moderate or even heavy use

More

  • On the whole, the Gionee S11 Lite is all about its design, selfie camera and long-lasting battery - so if these are what you require above everything else, you can consider the S11 Lite - but considering all-round performance, there are many better options around
