Gionee Elife S5.1 Philippines Price Php 12,499, Specs, Key Features

One of the slimmest and most sleek metal-clad handsets to ever be released has just become officially available here in the Philippines. And the real cool thing is that Belexis Concepts Inc. - the official and exclusive distributor of Gionee smartphones in the country - has made the device quite affordable!

Gionee Elife S5.1

Gionee Elife S5.1 - measuring only 5.1 millimeters at its thickest point - is the thinnest device in Gionee's current product catalogue and is the slimmest smartphone they have made thus far.

Flaunting a glass-metal-glass sandwich ultra-svelte design identity and a 4.8 inch HD SuperAMOLED dislay underneath scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3 touchscreen, Gionee Elife S5.1's head-turning looks is obviously its strongest asset. But it's not the only thing that's notable about this release. It also has good internal hardware and a capable pair of cameras.

Gionee Elife S5.1 runs its Android 4.4.2 KitKat based Amigo UI with a 1.7 GHz Octa Core MediaTek MT6592 chipset incorporating eight ARM Cortex A7 CPUs and Mali 450-MP4 GPU, comes with 16 GB of non-expandable internal storage, and has 1 GB of RAM for multitasking. Powered by a non-removable Li-Ion 2,050 mAh battery, the handset sports an 8 MegaPixel autofocus camera with LED flash at the back and a wide-angle 5 MegaPixel front cam for selfies and groufies with your friends.

So how affordable is 'quite affordable'? Gionee Elife S5.1 dons an official suggested retail price of only Php 12,499, which I think is just right considering its decent technical specifications, luxurious construction, and stellar design. Is it the right handset for you? If you're keen on spending more than Php 20,000 on a flagship smartphone but you still want a capable handset that looks and feels very elegant and catches the attention of everyone every time you take it out of your pocket, I recommend that you go for this stunning release.
