Gerald Damian, 09 May 2014Yeah of course there is an official confirmation on Gionee /Facebook page about kit Kat update... I contacted the service care of Gionee. They said that neither kitkat update nor amigo update is officially confirmed.

I would like to share with ur questions about e7.. 1, I didn't find any options for setting a default number for a person having multiple contact numbers.. 2, u can feel the incoming calls even if your fone in purse by settings the ringtone volume to higher level because it's speaker output is high.. 3, Display sharpness and brightness of this E7 is highly clear and impressive... But sunlight visibility is not good on auto brightness u can clear it by adjusting back ground display by manual to higher level.. 4, 2500 mah battery can perform for two days of usage for ur needs.. 5, there is an option on the dial pad for recording calls manually.. U can also use third party apps for automatic call recordings... Hope it will help you... Regards... Gerald from God's own country..
