Tech Lass's Verdict:

For some users the hybrid SIM slot of the Gionee S6 Pro might not be a major factor to be considered before purchasing this phone, but for some who give their MicroSD card the same importance as their SIM, it may. That aside, the Gionee S6 Pro has great features, has been well configured and promises a high level of performance. One can only hope that its performance in real life would go hand in hand with its promise of good one on its specs sheet.
