Hi guys,
I currently don't own this device but seeing it on xda had made me +1 to buy it.
But the problem starts here :-
1. Is there any chance of getting cynogenmod.
2. Will it get 4.x
3. Does this device support tv-out ,MHL?
4. I have never used Gionee phone so i m little worried.

I m confused in these phone
1. Micromax Knight.
2. Elife E7
3. Galaxy S4
4. Nexus 5

I do lots of heavy gaming and elife scores very high in benchmarks.

1. Unlikely
2. 4.3 has been announced in this forum
3. Not that I know of
4. I came from a Sony Z Ultra and this phone matches its performance (as it should)

5. Best phone camera I've experienced
6. I've never tested games
7. Good quality and performance at a good price

You shouldn't be caring about the Android update if you are sticking to the Amigo UI they are giving.. as the changes won't be noticeable in the update. Btw, the performance is real good but a little worry is - Battery.
Camera is excellent, and the phone is better than Canvas Knight and S4, but Nexus 5 will be a perfect competitor against this. Go for Elife if you feel the 4.4-inch screen won't bother u, and if you need a better camera and don't really care about the battery all the time. Performance wise, Nexus 5 is a little better but that is because of the UI.

Ummm....Yeah...I'm confused too... @GTARaja
Which phone should I buy...?
I'm coming from Xperia SL

My options are...
Elife E7
Gionee S5.5(Mediatek Octa core)
Xperia T2 Ultra...

I thought of buying T2 ultra....but it has 720p display and Adreno 305
and Elife E7 has FHD display and 330 gpu..
So...is this really worth the money..
My friend said there won't be any XDA support for this phone...ie...Roms and stuff...

bro my friend has asked the same question today and he bought Sony T2 Ultra. He wanted brand. See i suggest as a frnd to u. If ur brand conscious and want unofficial support for ur device (i mean custom roms) Xperia T2 Ultra will be nice option. i will not suggest GiONEE S5.5 because of MediaTek Chipset.It cannot stand in front of Snapdragon 800. Since u have used Sony u might be aware of sonys upgrades...pathetic...Now Coming to GiONEE E7.. If u want performance and brand is not important i will suggest u GiONEE E7. Yes everyone will tell chinese chinese...i also hear the same...but the thing is the underlying hardware Snapdragon 800 with 3GB RAM...Till Date i didnt experienced a performance slow down or hagging problem... See today devices with 2GB Ram 1GB is used by Apps only so 3GB is on the safer side..Sorry wrote many blah blah things...anyways if u want more information u can msg me..

Thanks bro....
I don't want brand...Its just that T2's camera has a lot of features...that's the only thing....
Other than that...i had already confirmed e7...I had read it's reviews...
Yeah....that's why I removed it off my list later....
Mediatek sucks...it lags after playing "Where's my water?" LOL
Yeah..I know...Sony sucks at giving updates...Xperia SL being such a capable phone...only got update till 4.1...and that too an ugly UI
I love E7's UI....kind of reminds me of MIUI...
Roms....I'll manage...Maybe I'll build one during my vacations...as I see.. kernel source is already available
Thanks for the advice...^_^
I'm gonna buy this...

Hello,

Bhasker here. I was interested to purchase this phone in 32 GB model with 3 GB RAM. But the only thing which was holding me back from going for it is:

1) Reputation of the company
2) Build Quality of phone and other accessories
3) The quality and the display and smoothness of touchsceen

I went to a dealer, who was able to show me the phone.
The phone was fast and zappy in operation. The quality of both the cameras seems to be awesome !
But I felt that the quality of the screen was bad and the colours were not as good as the Galaxy Grand. It had that chinese kind of quality.
I had a look at the build quality of charger, USB cables and earphones. I personally found it to be cheap.

Can anybody provide a neutral feedback on quality of display ? Is the screen good in terms of colours, contrast and video quality ? Does it have a full HD display ? How is the quality of display when compared to Samsung Galaxy Grand ?

I dunno how you rated the screen showed at that shop, but you cannot say Gionee E7 screen as bad as Grand. In fact, it's screen is on par with some higher end models like Z1 and S4. Colors are sharp, contrast is as good as flagship grade as well and viewing angles are great. 1080p videos played out perfectly fine on my handset. Only gripe with the screen is that sunlight legibility is not good and you need to turn up your brightness to maximum in bright sun if you want it to be legible enough. Build quality of phone is good, but can't vouch the same for accessories as I haven't tried them much. Though looks good enough for the price you pay for...
