The newly released Gionee Elife E7 makes use of a powerful mechanism to deliver performance.
The device provides a tough competition to its rivals whose products are significantly priced higher. In the present market, the device may be the cheapest in terms of price, especially with a Snapdragon 800 processor along with full HD touchscreen. Let us see how the device stacks up against the Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone.
The Lumia 920 is technically an exciting smartphone. The device features an optically stabilized camera, in-built wireless charging and the Microsoft Windows Phone 8 operating system. However, being a smartphone is not only about one single feature; rather, it is the whole device.
The E7 is a single block made of plastic with an appealing granite texture. The surface is flat and very smooth, making it difficult to grip the device. The front panel is completely bare. The buttons are literally invisible unless illuminated. This may be a problem in terms of usability. The device has an earpiece and a camera lens above the screen. The body of E7 bulges at the back along with a protruding camera lens. The top and bottom are curved and the sides are flat to provide the device with a unibody construction.
The Nokia Lumia 920 has a similar design as that of the Lumia 800. The device is a tad bigger than its predecessor. The device is made from polycarbonate plastic with a slightly curved screen. The device comes with a glossy finish making it a slippery customer when held in hand. Thankfully, the matte black version is still available that looks great and is not that slippery as the one with a glossy finish. The sides are curvy, with responsive touch sensitive buttons.
Display and Dimensions
The E7 has a crisp and bright screen with a 5.5 inches full HD resolution. The screen is highly reflective that makes it washed out in the sun unless the brightness level is raised a bit. The smartphone measures 150.6mm tall, 75mm wide, 9.5 mm thick and weighs 150 grams.
The Lumia 920 encompasses a 4.5 inches LCD panel with a resolution of 768×1280 pixels. The screen provides a smooth and sharp picture experience. The device weighs 185 grams making it heavier than its competitor. However, the smartphone is 130.3mm tall, 70.8mm wide and 10.7mm thick, which is smaller and thicker than the E7.
The E7 uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.2GHz quad core processor whereas the Lumia 920 is powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core 1.5GHz processor. The E7 has internal storage capacity of 16GB with 2GB RAM and 32GB with 3GB of RAM. In comparison, the Lumia 920 has internal memory of 32GB with 1GB of RAM.
The E7 uses non-removable 2500 mAh battery that performs better than the 2000 mAh battery used in the Lumia 920.
The E7 runs on Android version 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system in comparison to the Microsoft Windows Phone 8 operating system of the Lumia 920. The operating system of Lumia 920 can be upgraded to WP8 Black.
The E7 is available in the market at $799.99 whereas the Lumia 920 is priced at $299.99.
There is a lot to like about the Android based Gionee Elife E7. The smartphone comes with great screen, good performance and good battery backup. However, the Lumia 920 has certain downfalls, such as the device is heavy, camera works great at night but has a mediocre performance in good lighting and is a slippery customer other than the black variant.
