    Form and Feel FactorIts quite slim, mere 7.9 mm thick and weight 110 grams appx.It comes in evergreen Black, Metallic Blue and Pink color options giving it a unisex label. Gionee is focusing a lot on the color factor to the extent that the company has bundled a transparent protective cover with the device which strengthens the device in order to keep the color quotient untouched. Bonus point is this that even the protective cover is also sleek. Even with the protective cover on, the phone doesn't feel bulky or thick.It has a very neat and clean finish which can be attributed to absence of hardware keys on the front. The It has three capacitive touch sensitive keys. The back panel of the device is having a glossy finish but the color options will make sure that minor scratches get ignored very easily. The placement of the power/standby key on the same side makes it easy to use and user friendly.Build quality of the device is superb. It's sturdy bundled snap-on-covers add a lot of additional protection as well.DisplayIts possesses 4.7 inch True HD, 720p display with IPS technology. The display works great and has great contrast. Color vibrancy is also so good. The native resolution supported is 1280 x 720 pixels at 4.7 inches which makes it a great for viewing HD movies and playing HD games. No pixelation effect was seen as such.Processor and hardwarePerformance of Gionee Elife E3 is rocking. It has Mediatek MT6589 chipset that includes a 1.2GHz quad core processor. GPU is Ultra low power PowerVR SGX 544MP graphic processor. The optimisation has been done nicely which makes it for heavy games to work freely on the device.It features a 1GB of RAM along with 16GB of internal storage. Micro SD card slot is also there to enhance the storage upto 32 GB.Experiencing multitasking on this smart phone is like a breeze. Credit goes to its 1 GB RAM and a quad core processor.Operating SystemIt comes preloaded with latest Google Android Jelly Bean 4.2.1 operating system. Along with 1GB RAM, it performs tasksat awesome speeds with superb fluidity.It uses Gionee's own developed user interface which is really very user friendly and easy to use. Home screens can be added and reduced in number to accommodate more stuff. Lock screens get a multi windows interface that provides a quick access to apps and utilities.Its compatible with most of applications and work easily and flawlessly on this smartphone.In nut shell, I can say that experience of device is very good. OTA updates capability adds more to the charm of this sleek and robust beauty.Performance and usageI have tested a lot of applications and tried to stress it beyond limits, but no hanging or freezing problem or jerky behavior was encountered.
