Recently, we have seen several attempts by Chinese manufacturers to create smart devices that stand shoulder to shoulder with leading smartphones from international manufacturers such as Samsung, Apple and Sony - The Mi Note Pro Of Xiaomi, Huawei's P8 וThe Nubia Z9 ZTE's are just a few examples that can be pulled off the sleeve. However, it seems that most of these devices failed to meet the task, either due to some component quality gaps or a lack of general polishing - the bottom line is that the Chinese actresses are not quite there to demand 600 dollars and above for Unlocked, At least to Western audiences.
And despite everything, it seems that nothing is going to stop them from continuing to try until they succeed in the mission. This time we get to know the Elife E8, the new flagship smartphone Chinese Gionee - which you will probably be familiar to mainly thanks to the launch of the device The thinnest in the world (For the same period), somewhere in the middle of last year.
The Elife E8 definitely feels like a leading product, thanks to the massive 6 AMOLED screen in QHD resolution, Helio X10 chip The most advanced cores that MediaTek has to offer, 3GB RAM, built-in 64GB storage plus microSD slot for up to 128GB cards, rear stereo speakers with DTS support, fingerprint sensor, system Android Lolipop in the latest 5.1 version and a relatively generous 3,520mAh battery.
In addition, the leading feature of the E8 that manages to distinguish it from anyone else is a high-resolution main camera 24 Megapixels (1 / 2.3-inch sensor size), with an optical image stabilization system, a fast and accurate phase-based focus system, and the ability to take pictures at up to 120 megapixels by sewing a few photos together, Program. ' Video capture is also supported at resolution 4k And application camera Which ensures that an image can be taken in less than a second after clicking its icon on the main screen.
The E8 body is made of exotic magnesium-aluminum alloy, but still its overall size does, and with an 9.6 millimeter-thick profile and weight of 207 grams - this device is still pretty monstrous compared to the other flagships
The Elife E8 is a pretty interesting device, no doubt about it - but is it interesting enough to justify a Chinese 4,000 Yuan Chinese price tag, which translates to 645 dollars in direct conversion? This is a question we will probably only be able to answer next month, so the smartphone will come to stores, and we will be able to find out in practice whether Gionee is really another manufacturer in the world's most populous country to start taking seriously.
