We all are aware of Gionee’s love for everything slim. Here comes Gionee Elife S7, uber slim at 5.5 mm thickness, which is similar to the Elife S5.5 that was launched last year by Gionee and received a lot of attention. China’s Gionee today at a grand event in Hyderbad launched this slim smartphone for Indian market. Though the phone has everything working in its favor, we feel price could dampen its prospects in India as it is available at Rs. 24,999, which is somewhat on a higher side.
Gionee Elife S7 will be available in three color variants Black, White and Maldives Blue. It runs Gionee’s own Amigo 3.0 OS, which is further based on Android Lollipop. It also supports features like Dual SIM, multi-band and multi-mode such as 4G FDD/TDD LTE and 3G WCDMA/TDSCDMA.
The Gionee Elife S7 was launched with much fanfare at Mobile World Congress early this year. It comes with a metallic frame which is made up of aviation grade aluminium coupled with U-shaped design of the railway tracks. Both these features gives Elife S7 a tougher body and doesn’t bend in the pocked like competition.
It boasts of a beautiful metallic body which merges high gloss finish and metal effect with two parallel metal light lines. Gionee Elife S7 also features a an ergonomic design which provides excellent grip even in case of single-handed use.
Now let us see what this smartphone has to offer in terms of specification. The Elife S7 features a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED full-HD display which offers a resolution of 1920×1080 p, 424 PPI pixel density coupled with Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
It draws it processing power from a 64 bit MediaTek MTK 6752 octa-core 1.7 GHz processor with the HPM technology, which enables the processors to clock at a high speed but at the same time consume much less power. A 2 GB RAM will give a hiccup free experience. S7 comes equipped with 16 GB of on board storage, which can’t be expanded.
It comes equipped with a 13 MP Sony camera with flash at the rear and a 8 MP shooter at the front. The rear camera is capable of capturing photos within 500 milliseconds, and can focus within as little as 300 milliseconds! The front shooter boasts of an intelligent face beauty technology 3.0, which estimates the object’s age, gender to suggest best possible beauty tools to capture more natural selfies!
It is powered by a high density 2,700 mAh battery, which is claimed to be the highest mAh rating among super slim phones. In addition to a more powerful battery, Gionee has optimized both software and hardware for lower battery consumption. Apart from this, it also has an extreme battery mode, which kills all the processes except for calling and texting and thus allows even 10% battery to last for as much as 33 hours.
A Hi-Fi headphone accompanies Elife S7 and provides user with excellent sound quality. The built in speakers coupled with Smart PA ensures user of richer sound and a home theatre system experience!
