In the not-so-distant past, Chinese phones had a terrible reputation. They were either knock-offs or just plain cheap phones filled with multiple pointless and annoying features - remember phones with five speakers? You won't see as many of those around now, but for some reason, the reputation has persisted.

Gionee Elife S5.5 Summary

The Gionee Elife S5.5 is a good-looking device and has a gorgeous 1080p screen. However, the camera is not that great, the Amigo UI on top of Android OS is a bit of a mess and it has heating issues.

  • Slimmest and Fast ..
    swapnil Kolhe (May 31, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    The Gionee Elife S5.5,a 5.5 mm thick , a 5-inch display,a 1.7GHz quad-core processor ,2GB of RAM plus a 13-MP rear and a 5-MP front camera for video calling packed with a 2300mAh battery. world?s slimiest smartphone which is just 5.5mm thick User Interface is Not that impressive bcoz it usses Amigo Os 2.0 for that. You cant add widget to ur homescreen. Phone supports both 2G network and 3G network but lacks 4G support, so where there is no 4G network the phone is expected to do well.Elife S5.5 is packed with powerful 1.7 GHz Octa-core processor and 2GB RAM on MediaTek MT6592 chipset which supports heavy computing on your phone with ease. If you are working on many tabs on browser then you can switch between the tabs easily with the help of 2GB RAM which allows you to multitask efficiently without any visible lag Design, display and hardware are just outstanding in this phone then definitely camera section will not be kept back in the race. Gionee has provided this phone with 13MP camera sensors which captures image at 4160x3120 pixels, AMOLED display . Camera can also shoot videos at 1080p resolution. Gionee Elife S5.5 is very good phone with really eye catching and super slim design. Phone is stuffed with amazing features like Octa-core processor and super AMOLED display. The 5 inch display has really good pixel density that gives the best quality visuals on the phone. 13MP camera is cool for photography and gives quite impressive outputs outdoor. The battery strength is fine and can support the phone for one whole day.The pricing is not yet known, however if it?s really targeted towards the mid-range smartphones segment then this phone is actually a wonderful option. This Phone is not sure of KitKat update yet,But It is assumed that This Phone will also get Kitkat update with E7 and E6

  • Beauty!! Uber Stylish looks and a Premium Handset
    Sahith Krishna A n (May 18, 2019) on Flipkart
    Gionee, a new comer has come up with the Worlds Thinnest Beauty. I mean, look at it. It is a premium stylish mobile I've ever seen. I love white + gold Don't compare with Gionee E7 in terms of specs. In its price range you cannot ask for more. Don't compare with canvas Knight. I'm not against Micromax but its devices are not upto mark. You just can't feel the money you've spent on the devices. BTW, this beats micromax knight in many aspects. Just check iGyaan comparison video once. PROs- Soooooper Slim (they call it E Slim) 1.7 ghz Octacore chipset, 2 Gb ram 13 MP primary & 5 MP front camera with wide angle. Complete Glass finish in font and back Amigo 2.0 (dont know why, i love this OS) 2300 mAh is quite good for such a slim device (with battery manager, you can extend its battery life) Cons- 16 GB disappoints me. :( Could've been 32. But that's (16) a lot in the price range Android 4.2 out of box. Gionee claims a 4.4 kitkat pretty soon :) Fingerprints are visible on back glass for Black model NOT much for White one :) The mobile gets warm.. But guys, which android mobile doesn't get warm when u play high end games for a long time. But I'm just mentioning it. Verdict: If your budget is around 20,000 then add up 1500 bucks more and pocket this slim beauty. You can't ask for more in your budget. You will not regret. This is a WINNER in the price range and beats other brands like micromax, Samsung, sony, Htc. GO FOR IT if you are ok with 16gb because that's the only drawback.
