THE SLIM FACTOR
RIGHT FROM THE ELIFE E3, E5, E6 and E7, Gionee has come up with some fabulous smartphones. The company claims this one to be the world’s slimmest smartphone and advertises it to be “more than just a pretty phone”. The Gionee S5.5 is a sleek phone with aluminium alloy edges and glass panel at the front and the back. The smooth surface makes for a comfortable to grip.
When launched, this smartphone ran on Android Jelly Bean but thankfully Gionee has released the KitKat update for the phone. The performance is smooth but it did lag a few times while handling heavy graphic games. The phone packs in Bluetooth 4.0. As far as the camera goes, the results were just about average. The outdoor shots were good, but it isn’t a performer in low light situations. The phone has got a non-removable battery, which failed to last even a single day.
SPECS: 5-inch display; 13 MP camera; 1.7 GHz octa core processor; 2 GB RAM; 16 GB onboard storage; Bluetooth 4.0
