THE SLIM FAC­TOR

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

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
