Gionee Elife S7: Slimmest Dual SIM 4G Smartphone

The Chinese smartphone manufacturers, Gionee has confirmed the launch of its thinnest Dual-SIM 4G Smartphone; Gionee Elife S7 in India on 3rd April. Earlier this month, the Gionee Elife S7 created a lot of buzz at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, where it was first showcased. Now, Gionee has sent formal invites to a press event in India, where the Elife S7 would be launched.

Gionee elife S7Gionee is known for its slim and stylish smartphone offerings at an affordable price tag. The Gionee Elife S7 with just 5.5mm thickness follows the same rule. Let’s have a close look at the hardware specifications and features on this smartphone.


The Gionee Elife S7 sports a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display, which is great in terms of color production and viewing angles. This display produces Full HD resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels at an amazing rate of 424 pixels per inch. This multi-touch display supports up to 5 fingers together on it. Playing HD videos and high-graphics games would be a treat on this smartphone. This smartphone also features Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection for added safety.

Processor & RAM

If you think that the Gionee Elife S7 is good for its beauty only, you are wrong. Rather, this smartphone is made for multi-tasking activities. For which, it has been powered by a MediaTek MT6752 chipset, octa-core processor, clocked at 1.7GHz. The multi-tasking performance is ensured by 2GB of RAM, which is good for playing heavy games on this smartphone device.

Operating System

This smartphone runs on Google’s latest Android 5.0 Lollipop Operating System out-of-the-box, which has been added with numerous features and capabilities, further adding stars to your smartphone experience.

Camera & Memory

On the camera front, the Gionee Elife S7 carries a 13 Megapixels (4128 x 3096) autofocus rear camera, which can also record 1080p videos at 30fps. Other standard features include Geo-tagging, Panorama, HDR, face-detection, touch-focus and an LED flash. It won’t disappoint selfie lovers as well. For whom, it has been added with 8 Megapixels front-facing camera. The on-board storage counts 16GB, which is not expandable. We really don’t like this.

Connectivity & Battery

On connectivity fronts, this Dual-SIM Android smartphone supports 4G LTE networks, 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and other standard options. The Gionee Elife S7 has been fuelled by a non-removable 2750mAH Li-ion battery, which promises long running on-the-go. This smartphone also features an extreme battery mode, which once activated can offer 33 hours of stand-by even with 10% battery juice.

Price in India

There is no official word about the price of Gionee Elife S7 in India. We think that it might be placed between the Rs.25,000 to Rs.30,000 bracket in India. However, the official pricing would be revealed only on 3rd April.

Our Words on Gionee Elife S7

The Gionee Elife S7 is the successor to Elife S5.5, which was Gionee’s flagship launch of the year 2015. Now, the Elife S7 with only 5.5mm thickness and 4G LTE connectivity is all set to enter the Indian smartphone market with a blast.

This device has all the key essentials of a great Android smartphone, including brilliant display, powerful processor & RAM, latest Android OS, good pair of cameras and even a strong battery. The only factor which could be the reason of its success or failure could be its price tag. The 16GB version of Xiaomi Mi4, selling at Rs.19,999 and the OnePlus One could also be a tough rival for Gionee Elife S7 in India.
