Gionee Elife E7 Mini Overview
Gionee tasted a considerable success by launching the Elife E6 and E7 devices and managed to gather some good fame and fanfare. With the competition rising among the “mini” category of phones, Gionee too released a mini version of Elife E7 simply called as, Elife E7 mini with a decent spec sheet and a 13MP cam. Let us find out if the mini really offers almost the same experience as of its bigger brother or if it is just a mid-range device.
Design & Display:
The phone looks a bit different from its higher end version but still feels so elegant. The first thing you will notice on the phone is the swivel camera. There is no need for front camera on this one; the rear camera itself can be twisted to bring it to the front. This would be amazing as you would have the same quality even in selfies. The build quality of the phone is rigid and the matte finishing and refined edges give a more pleasant and comfortable feel to hold in hand. The phone sports a 4.7 inch 720p display with 312 ppi. Viewing angles are wide and colors look vibrant. For a device in this price range, the display is very good.
The device comes with 4.2 Jelly Bean. Once again Gionee’s own Amigo 2.0 comes as the UI. There is no custom launcher and all the app icons are placed in the homescreen itself. This would be tad frustrating if have too many apps installed and you want to find an app. The icons and the UI colors look cool in a way and gives a different feel when compared to the stock UI or other custom UIs. No option of widgets once again, which would seem disappointing for most of us. The animations and transition effects look cool, but in the due time, you would feel it frustrating. Most of the UI is similar to that of its bigger brother and once again Gionee disappoints in this regard and stock UI could have saved its grace.
Camera & Audio:
As mentioned earlier, the E7 mini comes with a swivel camera, which can be twisted to the back or the front. The camera is of 13MP and features auto focus along with LED flash. This phone too produces decent pictures with great amount of detail. Colors too look great and noise is kept minimal. But we don’t see the professional mode which is featured in E7. However still there are few shooting modes, options and tweaks you can make to experiment on the picture. The audio output is clear but shows a bit of distortion when you pump up the volume to higher levels, but anyway the loudspeaker is sufficiently louder this time.
Connectivity & Additional Features:
Unlike E7, this mini comes with a dual sim which is welcome for a phone in this segment. Network reception is good and we didn’t face any issues during call. Call quality is clear and louder with both the speaker and loudspeaker. Both the parties are able to hear decent in-call voices. The phone also supports Wifi 802.11, Bluetooth 4.0, 3G, FM Radio and A-GPS. Internal memory is limited to 16GB among which you only get around 10 GB for storage. Sadly again, there is no microSD slot here and Gionee doesn’t seem to learn from the mistake of E7.
Performance & Battery:
The phone runs on Mediatek chipset with an Octa core 1.7 GHz processor, 1GB RAM and Mali-450MP4 GPU. The phone is able to mark a decent score in the benchmark tests, scoring around 25k in Antutu and 14k in Quadrant. The overall operation might feel good, but the custom UI and lesser RAM sometimes makes the phone a bit sluggish but these are some rare occasions for now. Some heavy games too played well, but still we see some frame rate drops and hiccups now and then. Here actually the processor has some decent performance to exhibit but the heavy custom UI and improper optimisation bring the device down. The battery capacity is of 2200mAh which should last one full day. But somehow the battery drains quicker than expected and you would need to charge it at the end of day. Once again the disappointment – the battery is non removable.
Elegant design Swivel camera Good image quality
Limited internal storage No microSD support Non removable battery Disappointing custom UI
So far the E7 mini doesn’t seem so impressive and doesn’t feel so disappointing. It’s a mixture of both of these feelings. You get an excellent camera which is of swivel type – good for selfies too. But the major drawbacks are no microSD support and Amigo UI. Gionee could have atleast bothered to give an sd card support considering its performance and price point. Anyway even if the performance is good, the drawbacks are serious things to consider and somehow if you’re okay with those weak points, it could be a decent phone.
