Gionee S10 Review
The body work on the Gionee S10 is so artistic. And although it shares something in common with the iPhone 7 Plus design-wise, it still manages to hold its own share of novelty. Looking at the S10 from a distance almost seem like you're face-to-face with Apple's iPhone 7 Plus. This is as a result of the position of the dual camera, the camera design itself as well as the position of the Gionee logo on the rear.
The S10 wouldn't be much of a burden to the hands or pocket at 178grams even though it has a wide screen. Aside the home button (which doubles as the fingerprint sensor) found at the front, the remaining hard keys are located on the left hand side of the S10.
As seen in the image above, the Gionee S10 is available in 4 colours - Cherry Gold, Dark Black, Indigo Blue and Primrose Green.
