The Elife S5.5 is powered with a 1.7 GHz Octa-core (8 Cores) Mediatek MT6592 processor, alongside 2GB RAM, runs on Android 4.2 OS without any compromise with speed. The phone equipped with 16 GB ROM (internal storage memory), can not be upgraded using external memory card.

The Elite S5.5 boasts a powerhouse 2300mAh polymer battery with 8.74Wh battery power rating, but no word for talk time and standby time. The smartphone comes with Gorilla Glass Class 3 coating on the front as well as  back, offering superior grip and a distinctive look along with a sturdy design.

The 3G phone does not support Java. Featured with 3.5mm ear-jack, Bluetooth, Wi-FI Tethering, WiFi, GPS / a-GPS connectivity options, the Gionee Elife S5.5 Android Smartphone boasts Motion, G-sensor (Auto Rotation), Proximity, Accelerometer and Compass sensors.

The Elife S5.5 phone lacking behind its storage, since only 16GB ROM is available and can not be upgraded using microSD card. Hence, in my reviews, the Gionee product is not good as per budget, as its tag price is 22,999. However, Huawei Honor 3X Pro is much better choice than Gionee smartphones, which tag price is Rs. 15,900.
