Gionee Elife S5.5 review: Poor battery life ruins a beautiful phone - Tech2


The Gionee Elife S5.5 comes with a stylish design and with a mid-range price tag, it aims to go one step ahead with its plastic counterparts from Samsung wand LG. Gionee also went ahead boldly claiming that the S5.5 was 'more than just a pretty phone'.

The Gionee Elife S5.5 was launched at an MRP of Rs 27,199, though it’s available in most retail stores for approximately Rs 22,000.

Gionee Elife S5.5 review


Chinese manufacturer Gionee is here to dispel the myth that all smartphones designed and produced in China aren't worth buying. It's doing so with the elife S5.5, the current holder of the world's thinnest smartphone title.

Gionee Elife S5.5 review: Genie in a bottle


Phones like the Gionee Elife S5.5 have come a long way. Well, they're coming from China but this is not stating the obvious as a figure of speech. We've seen good-looking phones made in China that are not the iPhone. We've seen reasonably-powered too....

5.0" Super AMOLED, 1080p, 441ppi, Gorilla Glass 3, ambient light sensor ; Gionee's Amigo OS 2.0, based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean ; MediaTek MT6592 chipset, octa-core 1.7GHz Cortex-A7 processor, Mali-450MP4 GPU and 2GB of RAM ; 13MP camera, single LED...

No microSD slot ; No Android KitKat at launch ; Non user-replaceable battery ; No LTE connectivity ; No NFC ; Chipset is upper midrange at best (granted, you're not being charged a premium price)
