I am using Gionee S6s but the battery life is not good. Why?
Battery life completely depends on how extensively you are using the handset, temperature (too hot or cold) and charge cycle. If you are using your handset to browse/stream on 4G for long duration, playing heavy games, recording high resolution videos for long, irregularly charging your handset (overnight, overcharge) or using it in hot environment, chances are you will have lower battery life than usual.

No, it comes with a Hybrid SIM card slot, which means you can either use dual SIM in it or single SIM and microSD card.
What is Amigo OS found in Gionee smartphones? How different it is from the stock Android?
Like many other brands, Gionee has also designed a custom skin to run atop the stock Android to make the most of the hardware present in the device. This is Gionee's take on Android with refreshed visuals, less bloatware and added features like System Manager, Themes and gesture support. It totally changes the way Android performs and add features that are not even in stock Android. Such is the popularity of the OS that it has been ported to other handsets for the ease of usage and performance.
How is the build quality of Gionee handsets? Are they durable?
Most of its handsets come with glass or metal unibody design, which not only feel solid but also makes for a durable build quality. When Gionee made an entry in the Indian handset market, it worked extra hard to establish itself as a brand that makes good looking and sleek handsets. However, the brand is not just limited to looks but also makes them sturdy to last long. Therefore, if you are looking for a handset that is extremely stylish and also been designed to last long, Gionee is a definite choice.
How is Gionee as a brand? Can I go for it over other recognized brands in the market?
Gionee is yet another Chinese brand that entered the Indian handset market following the boom in budget segment created by the likes of Xiaomi. However, the brand did not make an entry with budget device but instead worked on establishing itself as the maker of mid-range stylish handsets. That is the reason why Gionee is known to be one of the trusted brands in the Indian handset market. If you are into sleek, powerful and stylish looking handset, you can go for Gionee. Gionee is pitching its latest mobiles as heavy duty selfie phones with great front camera and big battery.
How is the update frequency of Gionee smartphones?
To be honest, Gionee is not known for timely updating of their handsets. Gionee mobiles usually come with the latest Android operating system - at the time of their launch - pre-installed in the handsets. Usually, most handset makers offer Android update support for at least 2 years and Gionee is no exception. However, you will have to wait for quite a while before you can get the latest update from the brand. Gionee seriously needs to work on the software front to give real value for money.
