I almost gone through all reviews on net and watched almost all the videos related to gionee elife e6, and finally I placed the order and I got it for Rs 21300. I'm too much satisfied with reviews on net. But after playing with this device I thought, I should contribute my findings on this device. I have been using this device for the last 3 weeks. The device is well packed. On the pack, we will get well designed and high quality flip cover, micro usb cable, charger, 2 screen gurards.nn1. Design (7/10)nnIt is the one of the best part of device. Gionee admits that they inspired from the iphone design. Mine is a white color one. It looks premium, glossy finish and high quality pastic is used.nn2. Display (10/10)nnIt offers full HD display. I'm able to play full HD videos, fonts are sharp. I compared this device with Galaxy S4 and iphone ,i couldn't find any differences. nn3. Camera (6/10)nnIt offers 13mp camera,but its not upto the mark. Details capturing on this device is very less compared to S4. It records FHD videos as well, quality of the video is not bad.nn4. Hardware (6/10)nnI should say competitive hardware combination on this price range. Its coming up with 1.5ghz mediatek quad core processor + 2GB ram + 32GB internal memory. Theres no SD card slot, but I don't think its a negative part of this device , 32GB internal memory is enough. The gaming performance is very very disappointing. I tried only FIFA, its really slow and non-responsive on this device. nn5. Sound (7/10)nnOn serveral reviews I read sound is disappointing. Yes it is low but not much low. Phone quality is good.nn6. OS (5/10)nnGionee elife e6 coming up with Amigo UI, its build on top of Android 4.1. They have customized everything. There is no lag, they applied animations when switching between applications.nnProps of Amigo UIn1. We can set the permissions for each application.n2. It offers call recording on the call screen.n3. We can change the theme.nnCons of Amigo UIn1. There is no application screen concept. All the applications are placed on the home screen. We can't manage home screen count it automatically increments/decrements based on the number of apps.n2. Doesn't support widgets. Really a disappointing thing and biggest drawback.n3. Theres a bug on lock screen. It never updates the date displaying on the lock screen till the first use on the day.n4. Caller image displaying on the call screen is very low in size.Its approx around 15pixels x 15pixels.n5. It offers gesture support, but its not effecient and hard to use. I never experinced its automatic dialling and answering.n6. Design of the text messaging,contacts and phone dialer disappointing.Also it doesn't offers much features.n7. On accounts add options, facebook option is not working.n8. Theres no swipe to call and text from contacts.n9. Contacts filtering is not available (Show only SIM contacts, phone contacts & google contacts)n10. If taps 3 times very frequently, the screen enlarges and difficult to use. And revert back on the another 3 taps. Its really annoying, not able to play shooting games.nn7. Battery (6/10)nnFor moderate use, an average of 36 - 48 hours.nnI should say this device not much worth for 21K. Go for the brand(Samsung,Sony,HTC,Nokia) if you are planing to buy phone above 18K. Go for this if its price down to 15-17K.

This is a great phone in this price range. Looks very premium. Even the 30k+ phones will not have such a premium look. Great design, looks stunningly sleek on your hands. Very light weight.nDisplay is the best. Full HD looks awesome.nCamera is very snappy, real fast. If you don't take your finger out quickly, you get multiple photos within seconds.nnAll in all this looks more contemporary than most of the high end devices(?)
