  • Gionee eLife E3 Review
    Devinder Singh (May 6, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    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.

  • Perfect Mid Ranger With Great Specs and Finely Tuned OS
    Madhav Mindhe (May 1, 2017) on Flipkart
    There are a lot of phones in the range of 10-20k but all of them have some limitations. Samsung has stripped off most of the sensors from all their phones in this range and others just focus either on Selfie or on battery. Whilst these two could be of some concern to some, I was looking for a well spec'ed phone for couple of months. Redmi Note 4 (No USB-C and NFC) and Moto G5 Plus( Only 5.2" Screen & Awkwardly Protruding Camera) came close but I was not ready to take the plunge. Then Samsung C7 Pro also caught my attention but then it was too overpriced for what it offers in the box. When I had almost given up and was about to go for Redmi Note 4 64 GB model, Smarton decided to launch their second phone with SRT branding. SD652 processor, Adreno 510 GPU, 4 GB Dual Channel DDR3 RAM, 32/64 GB EMMC 5.1, 5.5? Full HD IPS Display with Corning Gorrilla Glass 3, 13 MP Rear & 5 MP Front Cameras with F2.0 Aperture, Dual SIM with VoLTE, NFC, FM, 4.1 BT, Dual Band WiFi including AC, 3000 man Battery, USB C Port with Quick Charge 2.0, Inclusion of All sensors, Android 7.1.1 make this phone a really well spec?ed phone. I really wish if they had used 653 over 652 and added an infra red port in this phone. None the less, selling this phone at 13 and 14k with Zero Cost EMI is really going to make others brand sweat in this hot summer. The operating system on this phone is quite close to Stock and very fluid and feels quite stable. The display is surprisingly very good and puts my OP3T to shame considering I had to cough up 35k for it. The only downside is the back cover feels very cheap due to the plastic that it is made of. Moreover the support is also quite shaky and multiple calls to their customer care and request for support over their forum have not solved a trivial issue with their Stronx app. I have installed a lot applications already and that has not resulted in any degradation of its performance. I will keep close watch on battery life, call quality and overall performance and will update this review if I find anything different.
