Teletalk Pvt. Ltd., the authorised distributors of Gionee smartphones here in Nepal, has launched Gionee Elife E8. It is their first flagship phone in the Nepali Market. It’s a huge phone with 6inch of AMOLED display which will melt the phablet lovers. But it’s not the display that will make you drool, it has an almighty 24MP rear camera that uses technology similar to Nokia’s PureView also a dedicated camera button. Gionee Elife E8 sports metal edges with plastic finish which keeps everything intact making it thin at just 9.6mm.
Gionee Elife E8 is marked as a premium phone with a fine metal finish round the edges, an amazing display, stunning camera, fingerprint sensor and a big battery. But considering the price of the phone, one might find it disappointing that the phone uses MediaTek’s Helio X10 chipset instead of Snapdragon’s 800 Series (808 or 810). ON GeekBench 3 (Multicore), Helio X10 outperforms SD 810, but on real life usage SD 810 surpasses Helio X10 with flying colors.
Talking about Gionee Elife E8’s 24MP (5696 x 4272pixels) camera, its laser auto-focus can grab its target in between 0.08 and 0.2 seconds which makes taking photos really snappy and blur free. It also boasts six element lens covered with sapphire glass. Gionee claims Elife E8 can take pictures at upto 120MP resolution. It also offers lossless zoom. What’s incredible about Gionee Elife E8 is that, it comes with a dedicated shutter button which is rare in smartphone these days. Gionee Elife E8’s camera also comes with Optical Image Stabilization which makes its videos steady and improves the night shots. And it supports 4K (2160p) recording at 30fps. It offers a Professional Mode for manual control of various aspects of camera. All and all it’s a complete phone made for photographers. Also on the front it houses a 8MP(3264*2448 pixels) camera.
