Editor Notes

The S series of smartphones from Gionee is all about slim profile phones. The most recently launched in the lot is the Gionee S7. The display has been improved on the S7 as it is a whole lot crisper with more PPI than S5.5. That, along with a marginally bigger display size will have a little impact on the viewing experience. It is not a serious game changer and we adored the display on the S5.5 too. The only drastic change is that they’ve tackled a major issue that came along with the S5.5 - the battery life. The S7 now has a big 2750mAh battery which is remarkable considering they’ve not bulged the size of the phone for increasing it.

The S7 comes shipped with Lollipop out of the box whereas no updates have been pushed to the S5.5 which still is running Android 4.4. Everything else remain unchanged. The camera, the RAM capacity, the storage, everything is unchanged. So to conclude, we’d say that if you want to stay ahead in the software game and you don’t want the hassle of carrying a bulky power bank for the slimmest phone, you should go for the newer, Elife S7. Else, the S5.5 is not bad either and will just get the job done.
