    Elife E7 came up with good innovation in camera section. 16MP Omni vision OV1685 sensor of Elife E7 can capture gleaming pictures. 1.34 microns pixel size can give you best shot every time you click a photo from your phone. Elife E7 has very complicated camera hardwareas it is packed with BSI 2 CMOS sensor attached with big Largan M8 lens unit which gives aperture of f2.2. Bigger the aperture means more light enters the lens and helps to produce sharper and really bright images at low-light area.

    Lens is made of Sapphire glass for hardness and clarity and it delivers the best. You don’t have to worry about blurring or other issues, now capture clearer and sharper image in every click. Clickyour wonderful moment and save it forever with Gionee Elife E7. UI for the camera is really wonderful and worth mentioning. It has a huge number of customization settings which will help you to get perfect click and enhance your images on the go. Video can be shot at full HD display and front camera of 8MP can give you brilliant output for video conferencing and selfies.


    2,500mAh Li-Ion battery present in the phone is non-removable. Battery should have been little more powerful and only this section of GionneElife E7 is weaker compared to other smartphones in the market. Such powerful phones are expected to come with 3,000mAh or above strengths to serve longer and to provide uninterrupted supply of power.

    Super display, powerful hardware will consume 2,500mAh battery very soon and if you are in to gaming and entertainment then you will be very disappointed with the performance of battery as it will only give you 6 hours backup but provides talk time of more than 9 hours.


    Gionee Elife E7, the product of Chinese manufacturer Gionee, is all set to deliver you with premium experience on your smartphone. Elife E7 has amazing body build with good plastic material which gives the smartphone a premium look experience. Revolutionary camera of 16MP and complicated lens hardware will leave you impressed in every click. Images and HD videos comes very radiant with the camera provided.

    Powerful Snapdragon processor will gives smooth and effective performance.Computing on this phone with 5.5inch display will drive your crazy. Battery is only hardware which is somewhat not so impressive in this phone; low battery power is only demerit of the phone which should be focused on by the company. Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is a past now but it can be overcome by Gionee with an update release. Overall this phone is impressive and reliable and expected to create a huge impact in the world smartphone market.
