Gionee Elife S5.5 Review:

Build And Quality

I have been expecting average or rather say poor build quality from Chinese manufacturers in their  smartphones but from last couple of years, Chinese manufacturers have changed my point of view with some nice devices from latest players like Xiaomi, Huawei and Gionee.

Gionee Elife S5.5  has done an amazing job, the smart phone is durable, feels solid and build quality is excellent. Despite of the fact its being the Slimmest smart phone ever, you won’t ever feel like Gionee has cut any corners in the Elife S5.5.  Gionee Elife S5.5 has scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass on both front and rear of the device. Over all build quality is as expected from a amusing manufacturer like Gionee.

Gionee Elife S5.5 Hardware


Gionee Elife S5.5 has Android OS, v4.2 (Jelly Bean) which can be upgradаble to v4.4.2 (KitKat) in later down time. Gionee elife has integrated with excellent Mali-450MP4  graphics. Coming to the processor, Gionee has included Octa-core 1.7 GHz.

Gionee Elife S5.5 Build Quality


Gotta say this device is well made in gaming perspective with 2GB of RAM and octa-core MediaTek processor integrated in the phone, the performance has been smooth and convenient. You will experience slight lag in some gaming occasion. I think its because of the software like other smartphones. Gionee has their own user interface which is taking a toll over the phone.

Battery And Camera

The cam and the battery , they are the only components of the Elife S5.5, which offer just average performance and could be a deal-breaker for few users. It is not like that the camera on Elife S5.5 is a disaster but it is also not excellent. The camera is just like simply say OK kind of performance. After testing the device rear cam by taking my pictures Overall, the rear camera imaging experience on the phone is well and will bring lightness to the occasional requirements.

Battery Elife S5.5 comes with Non-removable Li-Ion 2300 mAh battery, I wont say this is the extra ordinary battery but at this price tag i would say this is the best device available in market.

Final Words :

In indian market, Gionee S5.5 is being sold at the  price tag of INR 22,999 . Its not like Gionee Elife S5.5 is not without issues. It is a excellent looking smartphone with amazing build quality which offers a great display, which offers excellent performance but lacks on the imaging part and battery issues. I would probably recommend you to consider other devices at this price tag, I mean face it you are not gonna buy a device based on the size at this price tag.
