Gionee's S8, making its debut at Mobile World Congress, features a wholesale ripoff of Apple's 3D Touch feature as it selling point. Unfortunately, there's not much you can do with it for now, apart from accessing quick menus and unlocking the phone.

The Gionee S8 has a feature for unlocking the phone with 3D Touch, but you'll have to turn it on first.

The Gionee S8 also lets you clone WhatsApp and WeChat messaging apps. These apps are usually limited to one number per phone, but cloning allows you to use two different accounts, so you can technically send a message to yourself.

The S8 uses a Micro-USB port for charging, rather than an en vogue Type-C port.

The phone's pretty slim at just 7mm thick.

The phone has a rear 16-megapixel camera with LED flash.

The home button also doubles up as a fingerprint sensor.

The camera seems pretty decent, based on the small amount of time I spent with it, and it can track faces.
