In terms of storage the Gionee S Plus comes with a 16GB of onboard storage along with an option for memory expansion via MicroSD. The device further comes with a 13MP rear AF camera along with a single LED flash. This is complemented by a 5MP FF selfie snapper. To power the octa core phablet is a 3150mAh Li-Poly battery which is expected to last through a day and half of heavy to moderate usage.

The USP of the Gionee S Plus however is the USB Type C port which in turn comes with easy handling capabilities and fast charging support. Sadly, though the Type C port still uses USB 2.0 - similar to the OnePlus 2.

As expected from a Gionee device, the S Plus runs on the company's latest Amigo UI 3.1 on the top of Android Lollipop 5.1.1. The mid-range phablet supports 4G LTE bands and comes with dual SIM support. Gionee has paid attention to details while crafting as the S Plus. It comes in three coloured battery covers - gold, blue and white - which in turned has a metallic finish to give it a premium and upmarket feel. Despite including a large battery the device is also sufficiently slim at 7.5mm.
