AnonD-557636, 09 Jul 2016Why there is not even a single review of any gionee phone in gsmarena?im too surprised ranjit sir
This phone is actually dead and those still buying are just wasting their hard earned money.
NO Developer support for the E8, because gionee has not released sources, No software updates either. this is why the gionee e8 and other gionee phones are not selling. they need to look into this issues and address them. because me myself i have stopped using gionee since the E7 and i am happy with OnePlus now because it's fun with a lot of custom roms and developer supports. with consistent software updates.
Why there is not even a single review of any gionee phone in gsmarena?

Rameez Dagdu, 06 Mar 2016Yes This Phone Is Not Compatible For 4G..And The Camera Was Very Worst.... Actually it is compatible for 4G and LTE. Check your local carrier for frequencies.
AnonD-483019, 07 Mar 2016The Gionee Elife E8 is is essentially identical to the BLU Pure XL. They both come in identica... moreAbsolutely correct.
Other than the FM radio that the original Gionee has, the only other issue I can find on this phone is that you can not move "Apps" to SD. Only will move photos to SD.
Hopefully an OTA fix happens for that in the future.
Mark_S, 12 Feb 2016Yes, that's true. I am thankful for those accessories.Just had second Android update to fix battery-life issues, bluetooth, snapchat and playstore error 504. BLU has been quite good about this phone. Impressed.
The Gionee Elife E8 is is essentially identical to the BLU Pure XL. They both come in identical colors with identical accessories. The BLU Pure XL is intended for the US market, while the Gionee Elife E8 is intended for markets outside the US.
The differences between the two are all internal, as follows:
The warranty for the BLU Pur XL is good for 1 year and only inside the US, while the Gionee Elife E8 warranty is good for 6 months outside the US.
The frequencies supported in the BLU Pure XL (weighted towards US carriers) are different than the frequencies supported by the Gionee Elife E8 (weighted towards more carriers outside the US.)
The Gionee Elife E8 has an FM radio, the BLU Pure XL does not.
The BLU Pure XL is priced at $349, the Gionee Elife E8 is priced at $749 in the US (probably much cheaper from sources outside the US.)
In all other aspects these two phone models are identical (except for brand.)
