Last week, Gionee unveiled a successor to its Elife S5.5 and Elife S5.1 smartphones. Known as the Gionee Elife S7, it’s a 5.2-inch Android smartphone with a 64-bit CPU, 1080p display and 5.5mm profile.
That profile thickness makes the Gionee Elife S7 on par with the Elife S5.5, although both are slightly thicker than the Elife S5.1. Despite its slim figure, this new smartphone doesn’t compromise on performance. It comes packing a 64-bit MediaTek processor, along with Mali-T760 graphics and 2GB of RAM. That it uses Corning Gorilla Glass 3 at both its front and back makes the Elife S7 also durable.

In addition to its powerful innards, the Gionee Elife S7 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. It boasts a 13-megapixel rear camera at the back, paired with an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter. Configurable with dual SIM cards, the Elife S7 supports 4G LTE networks.
Also notable is the boost in battery life, the battery now has 2750mAh capacity instead of the low 2300mAh of the Elife S5.5. It’s non-removable, but at least we’re guaranteed of getting more usage from the phone on a single charge.
