Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Although the Gionee Elife E5 might be extremely portable with its small exterior but I don't think it's worth against the cramped keypad it offers and even the functionality isn't worth the struggle. With all the advanced call management features present in the Gionee Elife E5, it is good choice for business users like me. Bluetooth for file sharing is really not of much use to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling. Even if my travel routes, both business and pleasure, are very much known to me I'd still like the reassurance from the GPS navigation on my phone.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It looks really small and comfortable for carrying, but I can't type without misspelling the words at least 3-4 times, that's how uncomfortable using this Gionee Elife E5 is. Video recording is a must on my phone, I just love recording and capturing the innocence of cake cutting or the craziness of a dinner party. I won't worry about the other features in the Gionee Elife E5 as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Gionee Elife E5 is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. I have my display running most of the day either because of reading or gaming. Thanks to the AMOLED display which not only offers a cool display, but even saves me enough battery to last for longer hours. I love gaming and reading on the AMOLED display of this smartphone. Although I would recommend a higher frequency for gaming, the 1.5 GHz is not that bad an option. Swift loading and overall smooth performance is every gamer's dream; and it comes true when you get the Gionee Elife E5 that packs in quad core processor. It's a real smooth experience with gaming or multitasking on the Gionee Elife E5 with its 1 GB RAM. The 16 GB internal storage of the Gionee Elife E5 is really meant for me and my ever-growing ebook and gaming collection.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the Gionee Elife E5 was its 4.8 inches display. The screen size of the Gionee Elife E5 is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. The Yes, 8 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily opt for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't think this smartphone can click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. Recently, I can't imagine life without selfies, and hence the secondary camera. Clicking selfies and groupies is a favourite pastime for me and my friends. It's sometimes difficult to click selfies and groupies with the main camera, so always go for smartphones with good secondary camera. I'd like my smartphone to do all my tasks simultaneously not just perform basic functions like browsing, messaging and emails. And I won't depend upon 2G networks for that. I keep checking the GPS for new locations and traffic updates. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files. Lower internal storage like 16 GB makes me chose which movies, music, images and videos to keep or delete from your phone. A larger internal storage suits me more than average internal memory as I hate deleting my smartphone content due to memory issues.
