Gionee Elife S5.5 unboxing: Great build quality to go with stunning slim design

Gionee’s S5.5 is easily one of the most stunning smartphones we’ve come across recently. Launched in April with a rather flamboyant affair, the S5.5 is the world’s slimmest smartphone at just 5.5mm in thickness. The smartphone was later launched in the markets for a retail price of RS 22,999. Here’s a quick unboxing and first look at the S5.5.



The Elife S5.5 isn’t just about ultra-portability, but has premium specs as well. It packs in a 5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, one of the first to be featured on a non-Samsung phone. Performance should be top-notch considering the octa-core 1.7 GHz processor, in keeping with the octa-core trend of today.


On the camera front, the device gets a 13-megapixel rear snapper and a 8-megapixel front-facing camera. Just like all other Gionee phones, it runs on company’s Amigo OS, a heavily-skinned version of Android, which adds some interesting shortcuts and homescreens in addition to the standard Android screens. Finally, the phone is powered by a 2300mAh battery.


The smartphone supports 3G network working in six different bands and the company also plans to churn out an LTE version of the device by June, though whether this will come to India is unknown.
