The phone’s best feature is probably the 5,000mAh battery. It could have benefited from fast charging, though, you only get the bare minimum of 10W. The phone features 4G connectivity and two SIM card slots.

The Gionee Steel 5 runs “AmigoOS” based on Android 9 Pie. It comes in two memory configurations, 4/64GB and 6/128GB. However, the chipset inside the phone is as yet unnamed – all we know is that it has an octa-core processor.
