Nokia Lumia 530 vs Gionee Elife S5.5 – Top Prices and Specs

Nokia Lumia 530 is the next device in line to take the Lumia series further for Nokia, while Gionee Elife S5.5 is a device that promises to break all boundaries and make a name for itself. Let’s which of them is the better device, and what are the differences and similarities between them, exactly.

Gionee Elife S5.5

The phone comes with some features that major producers that established themselves as brands  just starting to get familiar with. These are, however, available with the Elife S5.5.

Design and Display

The 5.5 inch display that comes with the Gionee Elife S5.5 is very bright, as it uses the Super AMOLED technology and has a very high pixel density, 441 ppi. That, combined with the screen size and the AMOLED feature make it a literally a very bright sight.

Camera, Specs and Battery

The 13 MP camera that comes with the phone incorporates a few useful features such as touch to focus, face detection and control over the ISO setting. It also comes equipped with LED flash, and a secondary, front facing camera, which has 5 MP. The Elife S5.5 is capable of recording HD videos with no problem. Further into the hardware, we get an octa core processor and 2 GB of RAM. Internal memory isn’t that bad either, with 16 GB available, but an option for memory extension via micro SD would have been nice. A 2300 mAh battery powers all these specs. The Elife S 5.5 supports Android JellyBean.

Nokia Lumia 530

The Lumia 530 is set to be released in August , and it is expected to clear and make up for the mistakes of Nokia’s previous endeavors. It ‘s supposed to come out in bright colors and run the Windows Phone 8.1 operating system.

Design and Display

The Lumia 530 packs a multi touch LCD touch screen that falls a little behind. It is smaller that its opponent’s display, with only 4 inches in size, compared to the Elife S5.5’ s 5 inch display. Even the pixel density is lower, scoring only 245 ppi. The positive aspect about the Lumia’s screen is its proximity sensor.

Camera, Specs and Battery

There is no front camera available for the Lumia 530, and the existing rear camera lacks standard features such as auto focus or flash. Even though Nokia added a 1.2 Ghz quad core processor, they decided not to give the Lumia 530 more than 512 MB of RAM, even though at least 1 GB would have been expected to complement that kind of processor. It has only 4 GB of internal memory, but you can add another 128 GB via microSD. All these more or less acceptable specs are powered by a 1430 mAh battery.


Nokia doesn’t seem to have done a pretty good job with the Lumia 530, at least not in comparison to Gionee’s Elife S5.5 which beats the Lumia in every category of the comparison, and manages to fulfill the expectations of a 2014 smartphone.


The Gionee device has been released in India for the Rupee equivalent of $382
