I would start with my own experience of Mobile Phones. I am some one who invests his hard earned money in a product which lasts for long and gives no complaint during the period the product was being used. That is why I preferred mobile phones with keypads as those are good in battery life and can be maintained easily.
Last year I bought a handset for an mount of Rs. 20,000/- of one of the best selling mobile phone company in India. The phone in the initial period of around a month showed no issues. But with the start of 3rd month the phone started to hang and could not run simple applications and to make it simple I would share that I was never a gaming person, still it would hang. I sold it off the very week these issues increased.
Since then I have been surfing internet and was in search of a mobile phone which is worth the money I would spend. Initially my budget was of Rs.25000/ at the maximum but during my search, which was for around 5-6 months, I came across handsets which were a bit more than Rs 25000/- but were best in terms of the features they carried in them.
In the end my search ended with two options
1. Nexus 5
2. Gionee Elife E7
I found that the cost of Elife E7 was quite competitive as for an amount of Rs. 24000 one can easily get 16 GB hard disk with 2 GB Ram and for another Rs. 2500-3000/- one could easily get 32 GB hard disk with 3 GB ram. Where as for the Nexus 5, also currently available in both 16GB and 32GB variants, the cost is Rs. 28,999 and Rs. 32,999, respectively.
Remember that now a days a normal laptop with 500 GB hard disk carries 4 GB ram.
Now speaking of features, my elder brother who uses nothing else but I-phone himself got very much impressed by the camera of Elife E7 which worked awesomely during night and gives very awesome pictures during the day, especially the HDR feature. My cousin who is an avid gamer had WRB Real Steel game on his tab and complained how long it takes for the game to start. But once the game was downloaded on Gionee Elife E7 it worked quite fast as if you are playing a game (fifia) on Sony Play station.
It is not that Nexus does not has a good camera but mind it Elife E7 camera is at par with I-Phone 5S.
The Mother board on Elife E7 handset is fitted with powerful 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 processor which is more than enough for day today work. Whereas Nexus 5 has a quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU with Qualcomm's MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset. which though not slow but as compared to price with respect to feature is just amazing.
Then there is facility of USB On The Go which helps in transferring/accessing data directly from a USB.
There are 2 drawback with Gionee Elife E7 which I would not call major ones.
1. Gionee's, for Elife E7, own NAVI launcher is a bit slow, but this can be sorted out by using THIR PARTY APPs (launchers) like Next launcher (1 I am Using and it is working quite good), Comet launcher etc.
2. The Phone runs on Kit Kat 4.2.2 as of now but in the time to come the company will bring in Kit Kat 4.4 and hopefully another drawback will be out.
After a period of around 5-6 months I decided and opted for Gionee Elife E7 which was not less than Nexus in any term as far as technical specifications are concerned.
I hope my review was helpfull.

I did a month long research to identify the best phone to gift my brother on his 16th birthday. I wanted the following features.
- A powerful phone with, Quad core, 2 GB Ram, HD Display and all possible connectivity features on Earth including NFC, WifiDirect, Wifi Tethering etc. and all necessary sensors.
- A phone with Android Kit Kat Announced.
- A phone that should look unique, sexy and fast. Any one who sees it should desire to hold it in their hand.
- A phone that has good build quality and scratch resistance.
- Ultimately a phone that will not be outdated for next 2 years. That is what E7 is........good phone.

I bought this phone a week ago and I am extremely happy with it. I have had used a bunch of android phones before and I must say this is the best I have ever used. I will cut to the chase and give the pros and cons of this phone
- Superb performance. Faster than S4, htc-one. Almost as fast as S5. Heavy games like Riptide GP2, Dead on Arrival worked like a charm with no lag.
- - Very responsive screen, with amazing display. Watching an HD video feels so amazing.
- Comes with a bunch of proprietary apps, some of which are quite handy.
- 5.5 inch screen is perfect for browsing and watching movies.
- Battery lasts for a day and a half on normal usage. But what I really loved about this phone is that it has a Power save mode which when enabled makes the battery lasts twice more without making any compromises on performance.
- front Camera can’t capture 1080 Video.
No memory card option
I will conclude by saying that this is a really amazing phone. This phone has got everything I was looking for.
Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support; 3G with HSPA
5.5" 16M-color 1080p capacitive touchscreen with 401ppi pixel density.
Android OS v4.2 Jelly Bean with amigo UI
Quad-core 2.2 GHz Krait CPU, 2 GB RAM.
16 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and geotagging,
1080p video recording @ 30fps with HDR mode, continuous autofocus.
8 MP front-facing camera
Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct.
GPS with A-GPS
16GB of built-in storage
Standard 3.5 mm audio jack
Accelerometer and proximity sensor
Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic
Non expandable memory.
Well Well Well..I purchased this phone in May'14.
As i had to go to Japan for a visit so I wanted a phone which has a really good camera and good processor.I did a lot of searching and comparison before going for this phone.
Believe me guys, its close about 2 months since i have been using this phone and i have no complaints.
1.Camera: 16MP camera is superb.I have taken all my japan pics and videos through this.They are superb
2-5.5" Screen is best, as 5.5 inch is too bulky.
3.Display is damn good
4.It is multitasking without any lag.I have played Mortal Combat,Temple Run OZ,temple run,subway surfer all with ease.
5.Battery life is good.2500 mah is more than enough.Plus it has Power management feature,which has battery saving option.
6.Flip Cover is very useful.
Altogether its a complete package and worth spending bucks.
i have gionee e7 3GB ram. phone is good but pictures zooming is not much good compare to e6 zooming..
Gionee Elife E-7, everything else is good, till you start installing apks, from play store, my UI stops working, wi-fi hot-spot (out of 100 attempts connects once only with laptop), F.M wont respond till i power off my mobile once in the morning, half of my installed softwares are not displayed icons show ? mark, i have to search ever time. camera starts giving blurs, i dont know why ?, then i have to reset it to factory setting. then only camera works fine this has happened twice in 2 months,getting horrible time. Sharing with anyshare or wi-fi is more horrible 1 gb takes more than 5 hrs.......
