Let me come straight down to review without any ado:
Performance: The Gionee E7 Mobile does the job pretty well. Long story short.. its as good as Nexus 5, no lag no glitch, nothing at all. Absolutely amazing performance.
GPU: It does an amazing job, graphics rendering is just great and this can handle huge resource hogging game with no sweat!
Ergonomics: Unlike many phones out there, this device is just a pleasure to hold. The back contour is absolutely amazing, gives a perfect grip while placing calls or while playing games. The concave back feels amazing to touch and it kinda gives the reference point while holding the device.
Camera: The camera does an amazing job. In head on comparison with Nexus 5, it was a neck to neck battle, where specially in the low light scenario Elife E7 was able to beat Nexus with good margin. If you expect a DSLR like quality then you are just being stupid. Phones aren't that capable (exception being Lumia Pure View and Sony Z series, but then you also have to pay the huge price difference), so I'm happy with what I got. Front facing camera is an absolute bliss. The 8MP sensor gives better images than my last Xperia's primary camera, NO SHIT!
Display: The display of is device is really good. Colors are sharp and vivid, much better than the IPS displays out there.
Battery: Lasts more than one and half day if you don't overuse. You might want to turn off extra sensors while not in use like precision location service.
Sound Quality: Being a musician and an audiophile, I was really skeptical on giving up my Sony sound beast, cause I didn't find anything like such in the market before. This device gave superb performance, with not much control over the sound through the factory sound enhancement. Precisely like Sony, with a little better output. You might want to change the in box headsets with a good quality headphones, if you do, you'll be amazed by the sound difference.
Connectivity works perfect, 3G, NFC, etc
Value for money?
Best in the price bracket?
-Beats some phones way above its bracket.
kwenaay, 06 Jul 2014Hi there please reply to my question. The camera of this gionee e6 is good?.Hi, what a question, its one of the best camera phones out in the market at this price range. You can check youtube video reviews from NDTV, Gogi Rana, GadgetsToUse, MobiScrub, Igyaan etc, all of them have the same feedback= Camera in Gionee E7 is remarkable. You have the amateur and professional modes which helps u tweak pictures to your preference. It is really meant for Shooting.
Been using the phone for the past 3 months. Just a few points based on my experience.
1) Amigo UI - Looks good, works bad. Better use Nova launcher or similar apps.
2) Processing Power - 4 out of 5. Plays most of the games and multiple apps with eaze.
3) Display - again 4 out of 5. Its not very appealing but not bad either.
4) Camera - Well, considering its actually touted to be a camera phone -- not very good. THe picture are not very true to the real colour.
5) Video Play - Compared the clarity with Samsung Grand 2 -- latter is better.
In Short - Go for it, if you want a phone which can handle any app thrown at it. And ofcourse its s welcome change from the now so omnipresent Samsung and Motorolla.
Lightning fast, even after being loaded with dozens of apps.
Battery lasts for more than 24 hours even when the phone is with a geek like me! All my previous phones lasted not more than 8-10 hours of use, but this is definitely different!
The camera is simply awesome, no match with any phone in this price range..! Gionee Elife E7 rocks!
WHAT YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THIS PHONE..
Now, about the phone this phone is really superb as much as I know I researched a lot about it coz i want value for my money. I was looking for the phone that will suit my needed specifications. for more than 2 months I was looking and wasn't satisfied with any of the phone in the market. good phones are too costly and I was unable to decide which phone to choose
What i needed -
1.A tough rugged phone. I am careless I usually carry keys in pocket with phone and scratches makes me feel that my phone is getting old
2. good battery life. I am tired of charging my old phone 2-3 times a day
3. fast processor I am into mobile gaming a lot and I also use my PC for gaming purpose . I need a good response when I open an app it should do it in blink of eye else its dead mister.
4.I also needed a good display and good sound quality I love music and a little show off among friends,
5 a camera good enough for casual use mostly for instagram and facebook.
What I am getting is -
1. Corning gorilla 3 protection which is scratch proof even if you try to scratch it with keys
2. Flip cover with 3 NFC tags.
3. Snapdragon 800 2.2 gh (I saw reviews on youtube and its almost as fast as Samsung S5 and Sony Z2 that is double the price )
4.display is awesome 401pixels per inch on a 5.5 inch screen and that on an apple iphone 4s its 329ppi on a 4 inch screen Impressive!!!
5. According to one of the reviews in youtube the call clarity in other phones is better but the noise cancellation in E7 is better so I guess it is for me coz i mostly work in noisy surrounding.
6. The camera is the best and shoots awesome pictures
7. Smooth lag free performance.
9. 32 Gb built in memory.
its outstanding mobile dont ask to any 1 just go for it... but issue only is elife 5.5 get the kitkat but still e7 not...pls update soon...we r waiting for kitkat update...
After reading a lot of reviews I decided to go AGAINST this smartphone.
My friend took the chance and bought it..immediately when reaching home..he started facing issues..the speaker sound was not coming and phone was not charging..
I really dont care if its Chinese and all..but if i am putting 28k then i rather take no risks..
instead bought xperia Z1 by putting a couple of thousand bucks...
However, when i had seen this phone truly i was very amazed by it..the phone camera is really good..not as good as Z1 though..
Anyways..am happy with my decision..No negatives about E7..it was just that after reading phone restart, speaker and small small issues on this forum..i decided to go against it...
i am using this phone antutu benchmark score 35493
i really love this phone its 3gb ram is fantastic i play hd games and hard multitasking without any lag elife e7 32gbs performance benchmark beat samsung s5s and note3s performance in antutu benchmark scores i love e7 :) :*
Roy Antony, 30 Jun 2014I made this purchase of Gionee E7 and below is the feedback.
Gionee E7 is... moreRoy... indeed a very good explanation to what considered a Much Help in understanding the overall worth of the phone.
Thanks a bunch for the catagorized annotation.
This is better than Gionee S5.5. First advantage is of display and resolution. E7 weighs much higher on display.In case of speed, processor of E7 is much superior due to snapdragon quad core processor. Quad core processor plays smoothly full HD videos, multitasking which results in usual hang problem in Micromax, Xolo, lava or karbonn but in Gionee E7, so far i have not come across even once any hang problem after using the same almost for 2 months. Weight is also lower around 150 gm. On battery front also it has 2500 mAh battery, so even after whole day use of whatsapp, hangout, facebook etc, battery back up is nice and over 1 day it lasts.Moreover, in power management, it has power saving mode which disables data and wifi when screen is off. This feature is really wonderful as sometimes i don't need to charge phone even after two days. It disables all functions in order to save power when battery level is very low. There are many functions in camera settings & i like that. So overall I am very happy after using this phone when i compare it with Grand Duos being used by my wife. DLNA, NFC, Slimness, Camera, Sound, Screen, etc are super features worth mentioning here.
I bought this product after a lot of comparison with other mobiles, and had searched a lot on different websites, gone through lot of reviews.......
When I got the mobile in my hand last week, and started using it I realized my decision to buy this one was perfect as this mobile is an excellent one both in looks and performance, thank you Gionee for for making such a good product at this price range.
Gionee Elife E7 is a good option for everyone going for a new android mobile.
Non-Memory card may seem a negative point but if you go for 32 GB phone it is more than enough.If you are a frequent gamer who plays lots of high end games in mobile then this is your mobile.
Overall very good product and VFM...
nikunj, 28 Jun 2014i want to buy a phone asap. i am considering 3 options, moto x, gionee elife E7, & gionee ... morego for e7, its a gr8 phone wid high specs..but if u want brand name den go for htc desire 816
I made this purchase of Gionee E7 and below is the feedback.
Gionee E7 is a not too large slim phone which just weight 150 gm. But when I opened the box, I was surprised to see a bunch of addons like the 3 NFC Tags, the flip cover, screen guard and a cute phone stand. The build quality is good and looks quite sturdy and durable. I forgot to mention that it has Gorilla glass 3, which helps in avoiding any scratches on the screen. This is very tough glass as it is claimed to be.
I started giving it a try for some time. Slowly I started loving the phone due to many nifty features. True IPS 5.5 HD inch display is simply awesome. The picture quality is incomparable as it has 1920x1080 pixels resolution and 401 pixel density and it is stunning Full HD display.
It runs on Android 4.2 JellyBean(Wish it had Kitkat out of the box) with Amigo UI and you won't feel any lag when you transition or swipe to other page or scroll. It's pretty fast. The overall experience is also fast as it has 2 GB RAM which is still not common on many phones at this price tag. You can change the launhcer to make it more faster or change the settings on the default launcher to make it more smoother.
It comes with a stunning 16-megapixel auto focus rear camera with unique 1/2.3″ 1.34 µm Largan M8 sensor, 5 element Sapphire Lens and there is also a stunning 8-megapixel auto focus front-facing shooter. It will be good to mention that I compared camera quality with few other friend's phones of similar category from Samsung and Sony. I found the camera has better picture quality in E7 and also it is easy to use. A nice feature provided here is the amatuer and professional mode which suits both the categories of people. The HDR+, which enhances the picture quality and helps taking stunning low light sharp photos. You can also take 360 degree view picture and have a charm app to beautify your pictures, to mention few of the aspects.
Guys, this doesn't have 4G/LTE. I thought of getting 4G phone currently, but when it is still not evolved yet in India so no point in hanging on to that. The WiFi connectivity is really good and fast. Call quality is good with 3 microphones for noise cancellation which you don't find in some major flagship phones too.
I really loved the battery backup in Elife E7. With the 2500 mAh battery it easily runs more than 14-17 hours, depending upon your usage. For me it is sufficient to run for two days, as standby is also over 300 hours.
Sound quality is average if not best in the lot. It is not the loudest but good. I hope it would have been a bit louder.
Gionee E7 is undoubtedly, a nice looking slim phone with stunning display. Overall surfing and user experience is butter smooth Elife and E7 comes with all the likes of a good smartphone. I have used for last two months and did not find any problem with it so far. I will recommend to go far it, trust me you will feel proud to make this decision.
