Design and DisplayGionee Steel 3 specifications, review and price

Gionee’s iteration, Gionee Steel 3 has the same body build as that of the Gionee Steel 2 device. The camera and LED position at the back is still the same as the Steel 2 device, while the loudspeaker can be located beneath the device, as the Gionee logo comes immediately before it. However, the front build is somehow different from the Steel 2, since the Gionee Steel 3 does not have physical buttons at the front like it’s predecessor and the camera is closely placed with the sensor. The 5.7-inch display of Gionee Steel 3 has a fairly low resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels.

Hardware and Software

There is an improvement in the chipset and processor of the Gionee Steel 3 device. Gionee Steel 3 features an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that clocks at 1.4GHz CPU frequency with Adreno 505 graphics processing unit backing up the viewing experience of the device. The Steel 3 smartphone packs a 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage that has the option to expand up to 256GB. What seems fairly enough, is that, Gionee Steel 3 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat based on Amigo 5.0 OS.

Camera and Battery

What makes it very known is its 4000 mAh Li-Po battery that has fast charging support to boost this mammoth-sized battery under some hours. Well, as for the camera category, you can sport an 8MP front and back camera as the back camera happens to be the only one that features an LED-flash.


The price of Gionee Steel 3 is within the range of N75,000 – N90,000.
