Gionee Elife S7 graces the Chinese market in a blue variant

Gionee is gradually making a name for itself in the brand space. The Chinese company is known for serving its OEM business to other, larger clients (including HTC), but is now looking to promote itself in its own name.

The Elife S7 was announced at the MWC this year, and has been an impressive device. The phone has the powerful new MediaTek MT6752 octa-core chipset paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM, along with a 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 8 mega-pixel front camera and a 2750mAh battery… all packed into a sexy 5.5mm frame.


Gizchina News of the week

A blue color variant of the phone (which looks a lot more like green than blue) went on sale in China today, for 2499 CNY (US$402). It is perhaps the most expensive Chinese phone powered by the MT6752, but has style and build playing in its favour.

We’ll be bringing the full review of the phone for you in the coming week… meanwhile, you might want to take a look at the initial hands on article.

    If it wasn’t so overpriced it would be a great option. Just not enough there to justify being over $200 more than the S3.

      I guess I agree with you. I simply love the way it is built (…like a tank), but it really doesn’t justify the price tag. For a non-gamer non hardware-intensive user like me it is still an okay phone, but I wouldn’t pay $400 for it. Perhaps $280-300 (this is a review spoiler, but the build is that good).

        You and seem similar in what we like for a phone’s looks and how we use them. I don’t play many if any games on my phones and don’t do anything hardware intensive. I would have no problems paying $300 for it because I know Gionee’s are such well made and dependable phones. I have owned one Gionee (E7) and a few Blu Phones and they were all great phones.

          If you want to $300 (or less) why not look at the s5.1 or for a little over $300 the s5.5L?

            I have already owned the S5.5 (Blu version) it was a good phone but not great for me. I currently own a Mi4 so I don’t “need” a new phone but I a always looking for my next one. I do have the P7000 on preorder and if the Mi4i launches in Thailand I will consider it.
