The OTA brings quite a few enhancements with the current update. These include an array of camera updates, including Picture Clear (background), Best Picture, 12 Levels of Beauty Effects, MAV (lets to click photos through multiple angles). Apart from the camera, the Game Zone and Weather apps get updated as well. Some new applications, namely du battery’, GioneeXender come along with this update, which also offers new themes as well as online wallpapers.

The Elife E3 [ Read Full Review ] did impress many with the build quality. The phone comes with decent specifications which include a powerful quad core processor, the MT6589 running at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, dual SIM, etc. One thing which we particularly liked about this phone was the availability of 16GB of ROM. The 8MP camera on the phone was found to be above average as well.

This really puts Gionee among the very few manufacturers from India or China to provide OTA updates. Gionee has a few phones in the pipeline, like the Elife E5, Elife E6, etc. which are bound to give tough competition to domestic vendors. We say, if Gionee keep moving ahead at this rate, it won’t take a miracle to put them ahead of domestic manufacturers in terms of sales.

  1. I am a Gionee E3 user for over a month now..and its a really awesome phone..!!!..has everything a premium Android would have and it has all this with a Charm.. and I play rather high end games Real Racing and Vector with no problems.. definitely a best buy at this range.. and pleeaseee do not compare micromax to Gionee…one doesnt compare chalk to cheese..

  2. user and the reviewer,, please tell me about the camera performance. i know that everything is perfect in the phone bt does this 8mp shooter is even as good as samsung phones 5 mp camera..or jst okk…..and is LED flash good enough??? is this camera is better than 13mp of zopo zp 980… because i want a good camera atleast equal to samsung s duos 5 mp camera….

    • Your question is quite confusing, 8mp shooter or 13 MP shooter any chinese phones is pretty good in daylight and in low light it will be average – comparing it with samsung 5 mp both 8mp and 13m p camera are better in picture details and color output.

      • oh thanks for ur quick reply…..and some more things i want to ask…. in igyaan review of elife e3 they said that some time the screen jst goes blank n restart is necessary at that time…it happened with their review unit very much…..
        so plz share ur experience …… n also tell me about the approximate free ram available in this phone when no app is running in background…. because i will buy either Gionee e3 or Lemon aspire A4(exact replica of zopo zp980)… from these two , on the basis of overall performance which phone is better according to u … 🙂

        • We havent not experienced this problem on the device we reviewed. For the free RAM you can watch our full video review of Elife E3. Gionee e3 is a great device, good build quality and decent performer as well.
