Gionee Elife S5.5 review: slim can be powerful

The world s slimmest Android smartphone comes with a host of exciting features and superb styling that can cause envy

Jul 21 2014 By Rahul Gupta
Verdict

In essence, the Gionee Elife S5.5 is a spectacular-looking device that offers some impressive hardware specs. However, performance is certainly not the idea behind this device. The Elife S5.5 is a smartphone that is designed to cause serious envy to others and while using the device, we experienced that a lot. When it comes to its competition in India, only the Micromax Canvas Knight (review) is the device that manages to come close to the Elife S5.5 in terms of look and feel and the performance.  However the Knight offers dual SIM functionality and a bigger camera while sacrificing on the slimness quotient. Otherwise the Alcatel One Touch Idol X Plus (first impressions) is another contender having similar hardware specifications and slightly more bulk than the world’s slimmest smartphone.The Elife S5.5 is not a really high-end performer but will definitely enable users to keep up with most present day apps and games with ease. It gets a brilliant display and a good camera, but an average battery life, which is all, thanks to its slim design.

Pathetic phone. Never buy it
11 Jun 2014 By Ruchika Mandhania On flipkart.com

I bought this Gionee S5.5 phone. The world's SLIMMEST PHONE. This phone overheats a lot and the static comes from the side metallic body. When i went to the retailer for the replacement he said i have to go to the service center and get the DOA letter from there. When i went to the center Thakkar Mall, Borivali West. They said this is normal functionality with the phone and they cannot do anything about this. I said i have spent 24k on this phone and it overheats from the ear area. So i called Gionee tech support from there and spoke to Tech Hema - She said its normal as its the slimmest phone. I told her there is static too. She said nothing to worry about this. I was shocked. When i asked for the supervisor she said she is the only 1 there and supervisor is not available. After insisting she gave me her supervisor's personal number. I was shocked again. When i started yelling to the service center they said they will give the DOA letter but still its the normal functionality.nPathetic service from everywhere. Please dont ever go with such chaalu brand. Never ever.

Heating Problem
23 May 2014 By Ajith Subramanya On flipkart.com

The phone is very good in terms of design, looks and tech specs but lacks stability. The phone has over heating problem it heats up to 50 C. The other problem with the phone is the battery drains out from 100 % to 75 % within less than 45 minutes there after though it gives a reasonable back up without 2 charges the phone cant survive. Actually buying this kind of a phone is to enjoy those high end specs if you keep the phone across the day in power saving mode why do you need to buy this phone? The last problem is some apps does not work properly like facebook if you open facebook the phone gets crashed sometimes and the app gets closed by itself. I bought this phone from some other dealer and gave it back in 2 days and i have ordered Moto X now from flipkart.
