  2. 2. The world’s slimmest smartphone • Just 5.5mm thick, this device is the slimmest smartphone in the world • Features an impressive set of hardware specifications along with loaded features as well • Available in black, white and gold, and a few coloured variants • Based on glass sandwich design that adds a touch of class and imparts a premium feel to the device
  3. 3. Glass and metal play together • Glass on both front and back increases appeal and adds to looks • Metal frame improves look and feel, and adds durability to the device as well • The top of the device houses the USB port while the audio connector has been pushed to the bottom of the device • 5.5mm overall thickness and rounded edges makes its comfortable to use and hold • Protective flip cover provided in the box
  4. 4. 5-inch brilliance in visuals • The 5-inch display offers a resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels • High-quality display offers close to 178-degree viewing angles and vibrant colour tones • Visuals look powerful and colour saturation, though a bit higher than normal, adds to visual quality • Ample brightness, good enough to make the display legible even under bright light
  5. 5. Good camera but afraid of the dark • 13-megapixel sensor with autofocus offered at the back, supplemented with an LED flash • 5-megapixel fixed-focus camera on the front • Rear camera offers full HD video recording • Offers brilliant image capture in daylight, while night shots should be avoided if not used with the flash
  6. 6. Not so Amigo-ish UI • Still based on older Android Jelly Bean 4.2, though the company promises KitKat upgrade in the coming days • User interface is easy to learn, but does not have support for Android widgets • Preloaded games are there, but can be easily uninstalled • The Amigo UI 2.0 is the same as the one on the Gionee E7, but is much more optimised and fluid in comparison
  7. 7. Octa-core goodness under the hood • Powered with a true Octa- core processor clocked at 1.7GHz. • 2GB RAM offers optimum performance • Processor can use all eight cores simultaneously to boost performance • Smooth performance even while multitasking • Graphics-intensive games run easily and quite well
  8. 8. A battery that makes it possible • Non user-replaceable 2,300mAh lithium-polymer battery • Lasts more than a day easily with average usage with data enabled • Can easily last for more than one day for light users • Very impressive power management by CPU drains negligible amount of battery in standby mode
  9. 9. Specs at a glance • 5-inch, 1,080 x 1,920 pixel resolution display • 13-megapixel AF camera, 5- megapixel, FF front camera • 1.7GHz, true octa-core MediaTek processor • 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, USB OTG • 3G, supports single-SIM only • 2,300mAh battery • Bluetooth 4.0, GPS • 5.5mm overall thickness
  10. 10. - • Amigo UI on the dated Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system • Camera not so useful in night mode Pros and cons + • Brilliant display • Top-notch build quality • Fast performance • Stylish and appealing looks • Impressive hardware specifications
  11. 11. Pricing and verdict “Gionee as a brand has always amazed smartphone buyers in India by offering impressive features along with good value for money. Despite being the slimmest smartphone around, the Elife S5.5 still features a powerful set of hardware specifications. The glass rear is scratch-prone and could be a tad fragile, but the S5.5 gets full marks for looks. It’s quite capable otherwise too. Definitely worth a look.” Rs 23,999 is what you will have to pay for buying the world’s slimmest smartphone
