The Best Ever
7 June, 2014
I would start with my own experience of Mobile Phones. I am some one who invests his hard earned money in a product which lasts for long and gives no complaint during the period the product was being used. That is why I preferred mobile phones with keypads as those are good in battery life and can be maintained easily.
Last year I bought a handset for an mount of Rs. 20,000/- of one of the best selling mobile phone company in India. The phone in the initial period of around a month showed no issues. But with the start of 3rd month the phone started to hang and could not run simple applications and to make it simple I would share that I was never a gaming person, still it would hang. I sold it off the very week these issues increased.
Since then I have been surfing internet and was in search of a mobile phone which is worth the money I would spend. Initially my budget was of Rs.25000/ at the maximum but during my search, which was for around 5-6 months, I came across handsets which were a bit more than Rs 25000/- but were best in terms of the features they carried in them.
In the end my search ended with two options
1. Nexus 5
2. Gionee Elife E7
I found that the cost of Elife E7 was quite competitive as for an amount of Rs. 24000 one can easily get 16 GB hard disk with 2 GB Ram and for another Rs. 2500-3000/- one could easily get 32 GB hard disk with 3 GB ram. Where as for the Nexus 5, also currently available in both 16GB and 32GB variants, the cost is Rs. 28,999 and Rs. 32,999, respectively.
Remember that now a days a normal laptop with 500 GB hard disk carries 4 GB ram.
Now speaking of features, my elder brother who uses nothing else but I-phone himself got very much impressed by the camera of Elife E7 which worked awesomely during night and gives very awesome pictures during the day, especially the HDR feature. My cousin who is an avid gamer had WRB Real Steel game on his tab and complained how long it takes for the game to start. But once the game was downloaded on Gionee Elife E7 it worked quite fast as if you are playing a game (fifia) on Sony Play station.
It is not that Nexus does not has a good camera but mind it Elife E7 camera is at par with I-Phone 5S.
The Mother board on Elife E7 handset is fitted with powerful 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 processor which is more than enough for day today work. Whereas Nexus 5 has a quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU with Qualcomm's MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset. which though not slow but as compared to price with respect to feature is just amazing.
Then there is facility of USB On The Go which helps in transferring/accessing data directly from a USB.
There are 2 drawback with Gionee Elife E7 which I would not call major ones.
1. Gionee's, for Elife E7, own NAVI launcher is a bit slow, but this can be sorted out by using THIR PARTY APPs (launchers) like Next launcher (1 I am Using and it is working quite good), Comet launcher etc.
2. The Phone runs on Kit Kat 4.2.2 as of now but in the time to come the company will bring in Kit Kat 4.4 and hopefully another drawback will be out.
After a period of around 5-6 months I decided and opted for Gionee Elife E7 which was not less than Nexus in any term as far as technical specifications are concerned.
I hope my review was helpfull.
