The packaging is very simple. Just a white box - made of paper/carton - with the Gionee logo and an image of the handset that's inside. It's not as slim as that of Gionee Elife S5.5 but it doesn't look bad.

Not your standard earphones! These have in-ear silicone buds and tangle-resistant flat-wires. The housing isn't really made of metal - just silver painted plastic - but the pair looks great.

There's the SIM Card Tray ejector, cleaning cloth, and - although Gionee Elife E7 Mini has a scratch-resistant glass touchscreen - the company is generous enough to have included a free screen protector in the pack.

As I've shared in my initial Gionee Elife E7 Mini entry, there are five things I love about this stellar midrange release.

First, it is powered by a True Octa Core MediaTek MT6592 chipset, which is both powerful and energy efficient as it can run just one or all eight cores at the same time depending on the requirement of an application or game that you're playing on the phone.

Second, it has a rotating or swivelling 13 MegaPixel camera module allowing users not only to take clear and crisp selfies even in low light conditions - thanks to its powerful sensor - but also to be more creative when shooting photos. I mean, just imagine what you can do with a smartphone camera that's as flexible as that.

Third, it comes with a simple yet svelte design language that gadget consumers who are not fans of too many metallic accents or lush embellishments on their devices would definitely appreciate.

Fourth, Gionee Elife E7 Mini features the Chinese company's app-drawer-free Amigo user interface for Android, which is both gorgeous and intuitive. I'm a Gionee Elife S5.5 user and everyday, I still find new features on the handset UI that I can't help but fall in love with.

And finally, the smartphone has Dual SIM Dual Standby capability that allows you to conveniently stay connected on two networks or to use two numbers using just one device.
