Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

The Gionee Elife S5.5 is really recommended for any user who relates to my idea of having a balance between a large enough easy-to-use keyboard and overall small enough for fit snugly in your pockets. I more than often go for efficient devices like the as it present me with a robust call management; as I am hardly ever off my phone. Bluetooth in my smartphone is essential more for hands-free calling than file sharing. I am mostly traveling around and even if it is in known streets, I prefer having my GPS navigation guiding me along, in case of traffic or diversions.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

The phone is very easy to take with you because of its size but I struggle a little while typing due to the keys placed very close to each other. The multi-touch makes it very simple for me to zoom in or out of images and websites. Video recording is fun and lets me record all beautiful memories of birthday parties and the energy and excitement of a house party. A smartphone without a good camera is really not my choice, even if the Gionee Elife S5.5 sports other excellent features and fairly makes up.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

I feel the graphics are so vivid and the text so clear, that I am hooked on to the 5 inch display for my gaming and reading pleasure. The display of my smartphone is mostly on through the day due to gaming or reading ebooks. The awesome viewing experience of the AMOLED display is also quite conservative in terms of power consumption. It's truly a pleasure to read ebooks or play graphic-intensive games on the AMOLED display of this smartphone. I can easily zoom in or out in a game or turn ebook pages using with just a flick of my finger, all because of the multi-touch technology. Now I can enjoy extremely graphical games with no lags, and on top of this manage to multitask with the 2 GB RAM of this smartphone. I can download and save all my cool and graphic-heavy games with the 16 GB internal storage of this smartphone and still have enough room for my ebooks and apps.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 5 inches display of the Gionee Elife S5.5 was the first thing that grabbed my attention. The screen size of the Gionee Elife S5.5 is pretty cool. The typing can be done with a single hand and slide it back into your denim pockets. Though I don't like to watch movies and videos on smaller smartphone screens, it's not fun. I can make pinching movements with my fingers on the screen of the Gionee Elife S5.5 to zoom in and zoom out images. I only have to flick my fingers on the screen to rotate images or turn pages of ebook because of the Multi-Touch technology. It's not that amazing to own a smartphone with Yes, 13 MP camera resolution. There are cheaper options available that too with better camera resolution. I click hundreds of cool pics with my smartphone and don't think the pictures will be so cool with this phone. For me, a smartphone with secondary camera means loads of selfies. Me and my friends are a huge followers of the selfie and groupie trend, we hardly stop clicking 'em. If you find clicking selfies as cool as I do then you should definitely opt for a smartphone with an amazing secondary camera. I like the GPS feature, especially for new locations and traffic updates. I don't worry charging when I can charge my phone with the laptop; I can even transfer files with this. I can't be choosing between which media files to keep and which ones to delete, due to internal storage as low as 16 GB. It's irritating to delete favourite files from my smartphone due to memory issues, so I always go with larger internal storage.
