Gizchina News of the week

The Gionee Elife S is thought to be a rival to Vivo’s X3S and according to reports will run a Mediatek MT6592 octacore processor, 4.9-inch FHD 1920 x 1080 display, 2GB RAM and sport for TD-SCDMA and the more internationally accepted WCDMA 3G networks.

Apparently the Gionee Elife S, which received its network licence as the Gionee GN900, will measure 5.8mm which is slightly thicker than the Vivo phone, but in all honesty Gionee will need more than thickness on their side to compete with the Vivo phone, features like HIFI sound and dedicated audio processors will also be needed.

    what i hate about thin marketing is fake thin measurement
    like the thin body not flat and fair like there’s bump in camera, getting thicker at center body, only measure at thinnest point.

    to all manufacture who did this, FUCK YOU!

      The normal comment we see is that the MTK chip’s GPS is fine but that low end manufacturers (companies that use MTK chips) use crap GPS antennas. I am not an expert so don’t know if that is true but sounds logical

        But I agree with you with that frustration. From recent reviews, it does look like this issue is getting resolved by reputable Chinese manufacturers.
