Gionee Elife E5 is now spotted in Gionee India official website. Full specs are revealed. On 8th July in a press conference in New Delhi Gionee had pulled the cover off the machine. In next few weeks shipping will start. It costs Rs 19,999 which means it’s costlier than Micromax A210 Canvas 4. Unlike Canvas 4 Gionee has opted for the most powerful MediaTek chip dubbed as MediaTek MT6589T Turbo where four ARM Cortex A7 application processor cores are clocked at 1.5 GHz. Also the PowerVR SGX544MP GPU cores are clocked at 357 MHz instead of 286 MHz.
Gionee Elife E5 has 1 GB RAM. We all expected 2 gigs of RAM. But that feature is kept aside for upcoming flagship E6. Other features are decent if not too impressive.
Gionee Elife E5
The best feature of Gionee Elife E5 is AMOLED display. Size of display is kept to 4.8 inch. Possibly there is no scratch resistant glass on display surface. Otherwise Gionee would have mentioned that in the spec sheet.
The camera module consists of a 8 MP BSI sensor back camera and 5 MP front camera. Both camera can record 1080p video.
In connectivity front Gionee Elife E5 has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, micro USB and Wi-Fi Direct. It has a bunch of sensors including magnetometer. Compass app will work in it.
E5 packs 16 GB ROM out of which approx 11 GB will be free for user. Micro SD card slot is also there. Additional DTS Surround Sound Enhancement turns it in to a music phone.
Gionee Elife E5 Colors
Gionee Elife E5 is stylish and sleek. Three color options are available; Black, White and Yellow. It’s measured to have a thickness of 6.85 mm which is really impressive. For the first time we have seen a Micromax phone with less than 9 mm thickness. But Gionee is always a step ahead and the thickness is 2 mm lesser than Canvas 4.
The only drawback of Gionee Elife E5 is single sim card slot. It’s bit shocking as normally we see MTK powered machines come with dual sim card slot.
There is a 2000 mAh battery powering the machine. Overall specs are highly impressive but it’s a single sim handset.
