This Guys are not serious. Flagships comes after every two years. and latest updates, it's almost like it never happens. i've been on Gionee Elife E7, E8, and since June 2015 of E8 release, there hasn't been any new flagship till date. software update has also remain same as E8 is still on 5.1 lollipop and E7 is still stuck on Kitkat.

Then i Joined OnePlus. and i saw much better experience. My OnePlus which was released same year, August 2015 with Lollipop 5.1 as the Gionee E8 now has 6.0.1 marshmallow with over 20 more customized roms, boot loader and rooting is 100% easy, hustle free and fully supported by OnePlus Official.
My device never gets bricked no matter how i far i have gone trying something else or messing with it, because OnePlus got serious Dev' community that will help resolve any issues with hours after posting a problem. and damn! i regretted ever buying Gionee.

I am currently getting the ONePlus 3T and if u love much freedom on a powerhouse device like me, then don't think far. OnePlus is your best bet!

And comparing it to your £68 Cubot Note S? I could buy $20 basic phone and wont brag so much about how cheap it is. I dont understand why you even reply "What part you dont understand fella?". Your question doesnt even fit in into any context I try to convey. My last replied was just a question and stating the price of Gionee Steel 2. Learn to read fella. It seems like you are the one having trouble to understand.

                                Amoled display and at least snapdragon 430 would have made a perfect combo...!
