Teletalk Pvt. Ltd. will be launching the Elife S5.1, its slimmest phone ever, in Nepal on 1st of Poush (16th of Dec.) for an expected price of Rs.30,000. Earlier this year, Gionee claimed that the Elife S5.1 has been recognized by Guinness Book of World Records as the slimmest smartphone in the world. However, Vivo X5Max (with 4.75mm thickness) has replaced the S5.1 as the slimmest smartphone in the world.
The Specs| Elife S5.1
The S5.1 sports a 4.8 inch HD AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1280 * 720 pixels and comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The phone is powered by a 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6592 octa-core processor, supported by 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It doesn’t feature a microSD card slot. It runs on Android 4.4 Kitkat with company’s Amigo 2.0 UI. There’s an 8-megapixel rear snapper with LED flash and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. All of this is powered by a 2,050mAh battery.
What we have to say about Gionee Elife S5.1
Elife S5.1 is one of the best looking phones when it comes to design and build quality as it offers a metallic frame and glass body at just 5.1mm thickness. However, this is not a premium phone when it comes to specs and overall performance. The MediaTek MT6592 Octa Core processor and 1 GB of RAM isn’t fast enough for heavy multitasking and running high end games. Moreover, because of it’s slim figure, there is only a 2050 mAh battery which results in mediocre battery life.
If you want a stylish phone, then S5.1 is a good option. However, if you want a powerful phone at 30,000 price bracket, we would rather suggest you to go for phones like MotoG 2nd gen, Xiaomi mi3 or Huawei Honor 6.
