  1. Single sim and none expandable memory :'(

  2. Are thin phones really necessary? I mean it’s great that it’s progressing but I don’t really see the point of a thinner phone than what we currently have…

    unless it’s a completely flexible phone that I can fold or roll into a smaller package, then I don’t want a paper thin (probably brittle/fragile) phone

    just my two cents

    • One drop and that’s all you need to say bye bye to your hard earned money.

    • Correct. Making it thinner could be making it brittle and fragile which is not good. For personal safety it should be kept on pockets or bags but then again, you would end up bringing more things i.e bags and holder which could expose yourself to bad elements from the crowd.

    • Well as i saw on the s5.5…its still has the durability…and i dont think that they will ruined there own legacy as “golden quality”(meaning of the word “gionee”)…bec. Like the s5.5 this phone is build w/ a combination of metal and glass…the metal support the glass for breakage when it drops …actually on its grand launch at sm north last feb..the s5.5 was intentionally drop twice to show its durability for those who worries about it by just seing its thinness…
