Gionee Elife E7 first impressions

With a Snarpdragon 800 processor and 3GB RAM you would think the Gionee Elife E7 throws it’s Android OS around like a doll in the teeth of a playful puppy! Well it doesn’t! As was experienced with our hands on here in China, and the Elife S5.5 hands on, the OS on the E7 is clearly not optimised and really drags it’s feet!

Gizchina News of the week

Gionee will be working on improving this as the months pass so updated should improve things.

As for the design it is really a matter of taste. While Andi doesn’t particularly like the Elife E7’s design, I find it ok. The large 5.5 inch Corning Gorilla glass display has narrow bezels on either side and the overall look isn’t bad at all. With that said it would have been much nicer to see an all glass body on something as premium as the E7.

Once Gionee sort the Amigo ROM then the Elife E7 will certainly be one phone to take a serious look at.
