Gionee Elife E7 with most sensitive 16 MP camera launched at Rs. 29,999

After the success of Gionee Elife E6, the Chinese manufacturer has today promptly launched its new flagship smartphone Gionee Elife E7 (Quick Review) in India for Rs. 29,999 . The Gionee Elife E7 is powered by Snapdragon 800 beast and also boasts of most sensitive 16 MP camera, which together make it a truly global offering from Gionee.


The Phablet sports a 5.5 inch display with 1920 X 1080 Full HD resolution, giving it a very sharp display which will be well suited for those who enjoy reading and watching Video’s and other multimedia content on their smartphones.

The Processor employed in the LTE Variant is Snapdragon 800 MSM8974AC Quad core processor Clocked at yet higher frequency of 2.5 GHz. The 3G Variant is powered by conventional 2.26 GHz MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 Processor. The 4 Krait 400 cores will give you snappy performance similar to what we saw in LG G2. This is also expected to resolve the sluggish Amigo UI issues observed in Gionee Elife E5 and E6.

The RAM capacity is 2 GB for the 16 GB storage variant and 3 GB for the 32 GB storage model. The internal storage is not expandable. Gionee Elife E7 runs on Android 4.2 jelly bean operating system with Amigo 2.0 UI on top .

Gionee claims that the custom made 16 MP camera module is the most sensitive in the world. The camera has a Largan M8 lens with 1/ 2.3 inch sensor. The pixel size is quite large at 1.34 micrometer and this means, sensor will be capable of absorbing more light under low light conditions. The front 8 MP camera is no slouch either. Reportedly it has the same camera module present in iPhone 5.

The battery capacity is 2500 mAh which is again not very impressive. The Snapdragon 800 is power efficient and we expect the Phablet to last one day moderate usage. The Battery might however be a limiting factor. Connectivity features include 3G, WiFi, WiFi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, USB OTG and NFC.
