  • Excellent rear and front facing cameras easily capable of challenging flagship devices

Editor Notes

Both these phones are packed to the gills with quality features and don’t have an astronomical price tag. Looking at the screen, the Elife E7 clearly marches into the phablet category with a 5.5 inch display, while the Nexus 5 is smaller at 5-inches. It’s up to you if you fancy huge screens or a compact form factor. Both have a 1080p HD resolution, both are IPS LCD panels. Both are powered by the current top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset. But we must note that the higher-end Elife E7 (one with 32GB memory) comes with a faster 2.5GHz clock speed instead of the typical 2.2GHz. Also, the higher-end Elife E7 comes with 3GB of RAM, whereas the lower end one is the same as the Nexus 5, i.e at 2GB.

With respect to camera, the Elife E7 has an upper hand thanks to a 16 megapixel rear camera sensor that is supplemented with many hardware and software features that improve the camera usage. While the Nexus 5’s 8MP rear shooter isn’t bad, it isn’t one of the best in class. It is worth noting that the Elife E7 has an 8 megapixel front-facing camera; one of the highest sensor resolutions we’ve seen on a front cam till date. The battery on the Elife E7 is a little bigger than the Nexus 5 too.

In terms of software, being a Nexus device, the Nexus 5 comes with the latest Android 4.4 KitKat and will will be one of the earliest devices to get the latest version of Android in the future. Whereas the Elife E7 comes with its own software layer called Amigo 2.0 which is based on top of Android 4.2. Lastly, we’d like to note that the Elife E7 has co-processors that let the user activate the phone over voice, gesture or a screen tap, much like the Moto X.
