    Gionee Elife S5.5 Smartphone Review - World's Slimmest phone with Super design

    MWC 2014 event came up with many new handset holding latest technology and surprising features. All the market leaders showed their powerful technologies and advancement in their hardware. The Chinese vendors too weren’t behind in surprising the crowd at all. The Gionee Elife S5.5 announcement really stunned the people. Gionee announced its new phone named Gionee Elife S5.5 phone which is said to be the slimmest phone ever of the world with super design and body.

    Even Samsung couldn’t impress much with the body and design of its new flagship Samsung Galaxy S5 and there Gionee got loud applause from the viewers. Phone is said to have huge screen and will possess all the features and specifications which is found in the phone launched by market leaders like Samsung, HTC and Sony. Elife S5.5 is targeted as mediocre phone packed with latest hardware. So today I will brief about this amazing package by Gionee. But before that, let us have a look at its highlights:

    • Android 4.2 JellyBean OS with Amigo 2.0 UI
    • 5 inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
    • 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution
    • 1.7 GHz Octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor
    • 2GB LP DDR3 RAM
    • Mali 450-MP4 GPU
    • 13 Megapixel rear camera with Auto focus, LED flash and Stacked Sony sensor
    • 5 Megapixel front-facing camera
    • 1080p video recording
    • 16GB internal storage memory
    • 3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, WIFI Direct, Bluetooth 4.0, USB OTG GPS
    • 2300 mAh battery

    Design and Packaging:

    Gionee has always come up with good design concept in its smartphone and carrying on the same trend now Gionee has introduced something innovative in its new phone. Body of the phone is having metal finish and the sides of the phone is having magnesium alloy strips all around which gives the phone a beautiful premium look. Previous version of Gionee phone came with single uni-body feature which means body was made up of one single metal piece. Elife S5.5 also has thin metal frame which is 5.5mm thin and gives a phone a super slim look.

    From now Gionee will be known for its creativity in designing a phone. 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. Phone has dimension of 145.1x70.2x5.6mm (5.71x2.76x0.22 in) from this we can make out that body of the new phone is very sleek. Phone is having 5-inch display with rectangular body which enhances the look of the phone and gives a handy feel too. As the phone is metal finish, phone does not slip from the hand but adds weight on your hand. If you take a glance of this phone from front it’s going to impress you with a large screen and above the screen it holds the earpiece and couple of sensors of the phone and below the screen it packs with three capacitive buttons which is common in all the Gionee phones.

    Towards the right side of the phone there is volume and power button. There is no dedicated key for the camera, top of the phone has 3.5mm headphone jack and micro USB lies below the phone. Back of the phone is simple and has camera, secondary microphone hole and flash at towards the left side of the back and left bottom has speakers of the phone. Centre of the back hold the Gionee logo. Design concept of the phone is really eye-catching and very well managed by Gionee.

    Display / Screen:

    Like the body design Gionee phones has innovative display as well. Gionee came up with one-glass solution in its previous flagship and proved to be successful in the market. Gionee has not provided one-glass solution in its new flagship but rest of the features remains same. Phone will posses 5-inch display with full HD resolution 1920x1080 pixels which is very good features in mediocre phone segment. Phone produces very intense and brilliant colour output as the display is built with AMOLED display technology.

    Viewing angle is just amazing in this phone which allows you to see the details clearly even from distance and from different angle. Phone is packed with denser pixel density of 441 ppi which enhanced the display of the phone to a great extent. Super AMOLED with 441ppi was pioneered in Samsung S5 and now Gionee is the second phone to use same technology but in much far less price compare to Samsung. Watching full HD videos would be a delight on the huge screen with such dense pixels. The Phone is said to be priced in the mediocre segment but has display which is found in high-end phones.

    Operating System and UI:

    Gionee Elife S5.5 will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. But as per the hardware provided in the phone it should have installed with latest Android OS. Octa-core processor can handle latest OS of Android or may be Gionee will provide upgrade to its new phone after sometime, however for now Gionee will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS only. Gionee Elife S5.5 is using Amigo OS 2.0 which is really good interface. Interface of the phone is very simple and effective. You can connect with your entire social network with the interface provided in this phone very smoothly.

    Hardware and Performance:

    Now let’s check with the hardware and its performance in Gionee phone. Display of the phone scores full marks but does this phonescore the same in hardware too? 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.

    World is just stabilizing with quad-core processor and Gionee has moved one step forward with Octa-core processor, this eight core processor will makes this phone superfast. MediaTek processor also has Mali-450 GPU which will look out for all the graphic related instruction on the phone. If you love watching movies or you love to play games then eight core processor and GPU will support all the Heavy gaming and 2GB RAM will handle all the volatile data to multitasking fast between application.

    Gionee Elife S5.5 is said to be a mid segment phone but no mid segment phone has octa-core processor installed in it. So you can say that Gionee’s new flagship is full of surprise.

    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, camera lens of Gionee has used stacked Sony lens which captures stunning images which looks great in AMOLED display of the phone. Camera can also shoot videos at 1080p resolution which is quite normal for 13MP camera.

    Front camera is provided with 5MP strength which is very comfortable to make video call or video chat at high resolution. Camera does not possess many features but has normal features like Geo-tagging, face detection etc. Camera is given with flash features so you can capture images at low light situation also. Outdoor photos are bright and really sharp.If you count the inbuilt camera features on this phone then you would say it to be average but the image quality is quite good at normal mode too.


    Elife S5.5 will run on 2300 mAh battery power, every phone is designed well and provided with battery according to its compatibility. 2300mAh battery power is sufficient to run this phone as it has AMOLED display which consumes less power and Octa-core processor and RAM will eat up the battery depending upon the task assigned to them.

    So, if you are playing HD games then battery will be consumed fast. Phone has 2300mAh battery which is pretty good and will serve phone for long hours even at extreme condition. For average users the battery will perform well for about two days while for heavy users you would require to charge within one day.


    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.
