5.5mm thin Gionee Elife S7 launched in India

Gionee has had a successful stint in India so far, and keeping in tune with the recent launches made in the country, the company has unveiled their latest device on Saturday, April 4th, 2015. The Gionee Elife S7 is an uber slim device that packs an octa core processor underneath the hood and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop.


In this article, we take a look at all the specifications and features this phone has to offer.


Much akin to the previously launched Elife S5.5, the S7 comes with a 5.5mm thin design. The slim profile is quite exemplary, and the phone will compete against the likes of the Vivo X5 Max, Oppo R5 and Gionee’s own S5.1 in the design department.

Built of magnesium alloy, the phone sports a glass back and metal frame. The glass – on both the display and the back – is comprised of Corning Gorilla Glass 3. A unique addition is the presence of a U shaped curve, which gives better ergonomics and usability to the phone.


The main camera on the Elife S7 is a 13 MP shooter, while the front camera is an 8 MP one. Gionee has claimed a capture time of 500ms, and a capture time of 300ms on the phone.


This phone comes with a Mediatek Octa Core processor, clocked in at 1.7 GHz. As far as the memories are concerned, it comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB non expandable storage.


The Elife S7 comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop, with the company’s proprietary Amigo 3.0 user interface layered over it. Somewhat similar to MIUI, this user interface relies heavily on gestures and doesn’t feature an app drawer like you’d find on stock Android and other devices.


This phone comes with a 2750mAh battery, that also comes equipped with modes such as ‘Extreme Power Saving Modes’ to prolong the life. While the company promises a standby time of 33 hours and 45 minutes, it still needs to be tested out.


Processor : Mediatek MT6752 chipset (64-bit octa-core)
Memory / Storage : 2 GB RAM, 16 GB Internal memory, non expandable.
Display : 5.2″ Super AMOLED display, resolution 1920×1080
Battery : 2750mAh

The Gionee Elife S7 is priced at Rs. 24,999/-, which honestly leaves much to be asked for. Nevertheless, the device is uniquely designed and will surely turn heads everywhere!
