Analysing the table above gives a clear view on how different this two devices are.
Looking from the design and display, we can be convinced that the two devices are almost the same with slight differencies maybe in the weight or dimension amd more, however, looking beyond the design we noticed there is more to it than meet the eye.
The Gionee S10 features a RAM of 4GB compare to the iPhone 7 Plus which comes with 3GB as well as an external Micro SDcard which the iPhone 7 Plus lacks. in addition to this the Gionee S10 does not only have dual back camera, it also has dual front cameras. The back of the phone houses a 16MP and 8MP with the main one featuring a F/1.8 aperture. The front of the phone is blessed with a massive 20MP and 8MP cameras, phase detection autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash totaling 4 cameras on a single phone, making the S10 the first smartphone to feature 4 cameras. iPhone 7plus on the other hand comes with just three cameras- dual back and one front-facing camera. Though the two features the same dual back camera the iPhone 7 plus camera pass a lot of review and as one of the Top telecommunication company and a company known for a clear cut camera the dual camera features a 12 (f/1.8, 28mm, 1/3″, OIS) + 12 MP (f/2.8, 56mm, 1/3.6″), phase detection autofocus, 2x optical zoom, quad-LED dual-tone flash.
One of the major features of a device is the battery and the processor. iPhone 7 plus features a 2900mAh Li-ion non removable battery while the Gionee S10 features a 3450mAh Li-po non Removable battery. In number the Gionee S10 might be more than the iPhone 7plus but in durability and reality the iPhone battery is strong enough to last the user for up to 15hours of usage. Reviewing on the processor it is clear and expected that the iPhone 7 Plus should be powered by a more powerful and fast operating processor, as expected it stormed a A10 Fusion chip with 64-bit architecture embedded with M10 motion coprocessor and a Quad-core 2.34 GHz (2x Hurricane + 2x Zephyr) Coupled with a PowerVR Series7XT Plus (six-core graphics) while the Gionee S10 on the other hand runs on Mediatek MT6757T Helio P25, Octa-core (4×2.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4×1.4 GHz Cortex-A53) and a graphic of Mali-T880MP2 though one of the latest and fastest processor but stilla work in progress compare the the achieved iPhone’s A10 fusion chip.
All our review since will just be a preamble if we fail to mention and look into the monetry difference between this two devices.
One of the major things to consider in buying any item is the price. Without letting the cat out of the bag we all knew that the iPhone 7 plus will be on the expensive side which i believe its understandable with the quality and feature of the device. iPhone 7 Plus is priced between the range of 250,000 -330,000. while the Gionee S10 price range form 150,000-200,000 Naira.
