Conclusion: Undoubtedly, the E7 Mini packs in some serious stuff like an octa-core processor and a rotating 13MP camera for the price at which it is offered. But on the other hand, outdated Android 4.2 JellyBean will surely inflict a doubt in the buyers head.
Conclusion: A solid build, bright screen and swivelling camera make the Gionee Elife E7 mini an interesting midrange device. The dated OS -- Jelly Bean -- is a big limitation, however. Perhaps with a software and price update, the E7 mini can still compete well against newer devices out in Gionee's target Asian...
Summary: The original Elife E7 may have a better spec sheet compared to this version, but taking into account all the goodies that this one has, it can still be considered a prominent device. This device really delivered impressive performance, thanks to its octa-core processor.
Summary: Overall, at the price point of Rs19000, the phone is slightly over priced when we compare with phones like Canvas Knight. But now the prices are at Rs 16500 which is the sweet pricing of this device.
Allview X1 Xtreme (Gionee Elife E7) Review: Excellent Camera, Good Hardware, Uninspired Design and UI (Video)
7 May 2014
Conclusion: Allview X1 Xtreme gets an 8.7 out of 10 for design, a 9.5 out of 10 for hardware and an 8.5 out of 10 for OS and UI. The final grade is 8.9 out of 10, but we add an extra 0.20 for the excellent day time shots, so the final grade is 9.1 out of 10 for the Gionee Elife E7/Allview X1 Xtreme.
Pros: very good camera, a true surprise in daylight, good audio and earbuds, pretty good display, very good front camera and camera features, powerful hardware, DTS plus Yamaha audio, extras like Sygic, gestures and NFC tags are welcome
Cons: poor low light capture, expected more from battery capacity, glossy and slippery, obsolete UI, no KitKat on board, overheating, no LTE
Summary: Gionee Elife E7 is a solid flagship device which delivers what is promised. With awesome display, high end hardware and an excellent camera with good battery backup , you do not have much areas to find fault with the device.
Summary: Now comes the final word and the price. A lot of people downed Gionee’s initial entry to the local market with the E6 mainly because of the steep price of Php19k, but to be honest, it wasn’t a bad package anyway — it impressed us and gave us a good amount of hope for its successor. We were right.
Summary: The Elife E6 gets a successor and unsurprisingly Gionee have gone with a Snapdragon 800 chipset on this phone, which has been labelled as the Nexus 5 killer right from the moment it was announced. I was there at the Buddh F1 circuit when it was officially unveiled and now it’s here – the Elife E7.
Summary: You’d expect Gionee to toe the standard ‘flagship-to-mini’ line and turn out a scaled-down version of the breakout E7 with its new ELIFE E7 mini. Turns out, the E7 mini is a whole different phone: design-, size-, and price-wise.
Pros: Rotating camera, good display
Cons: Only 1GB RAM, Amigo OS not tweaked for the hardware, no storage expansion
Summary: It may be a relatively new player in the highly competitive Indian mobile phone market, but Gionee has been making waves with its sleekly designed and relatively low priced handsets. The Elife E5 and E6 proved that the company had the design capability to slug it out with the best.
