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)

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.

Super-slim Gionee Elife S5.5 could be world's thinnest (hands-on)


The handset sports an incredibly slim 5.5mm-thin metal frame, an octa-core processor, a full-HD 5-inch display as well as a Corning Gorilla Glass rear.

Gionee Elife S5.5 Review: Razor-thin elegance


we have our hands on a special treat - the Gionee Elife S5.5, which is the world's slimmest phone

I wouldn’t say that the Gionee Elife S5.5 is perfect – far from it. But it definitely has the potential to be so. There are definitely some nicks and bruises left here and there worth patching, but so what, I haven’t seen a phone which doesn’t. Gionee...

Gionee Elife S5.5 review: Slim is in - The Times of India


Is Gionee Elife S5.5 a no-compromise phone? We try to answer this question in our review.

-Vibrant display ; -Decent gaming performance

But if you're primarily looking for a smartphone that performs well, we'd recommend Motorola's Moto X. If you want a big screen phone in the same price range, you can also check out HTC Desire 816, which has an additional advantage of dual-sim...
