Gionee Elife S5.1 super-slim super light Android Phone

The Display

Gionee Elife S5.1 has a 4.8-inch AMOLED display. It offers a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, which is reasonable and will offer a great view for watching movies and browsing the web.

The advantage of AMOLED display panels is that they produce their own light (instead of the need for a backlight, as is the case with LCD/LED screens), which means that your battery won’t die as quickly as LCD screens.

Processor and Memory

Whereas the Marathon M3 features a 1.3Ghz, quad-core MediaTek Cortex A7 processor, the Elife S5.1 features a 1.7Ghz, octa-core MediaTek processor. In the Elife S5.1, then, Gionee has provided even more raw power for the processor. The Elife S5.1 processor has eight cores instead of four (“octa” vs. “quad”), and the speed of the processor has been bumped up to close to 2GHz.

Gionee Elife S5.1 sports a 1GB of RAM, which just okay, but just.

More Features

Gionee Elife S5.1 sports a 16GB of internal storage. It lacks a memory card slot, so you cannot increase storage, probably one of the tradeoff of making this smartphone super-slim and light.

Next, the front camera of the Elife S5.1 is 5 megapixels, which is great for taking great selfies. On the back is an equally impressive 8 megapixels camera with 1080p HD video recording, Panorama, and HDR.

As for the operating system, Gionee Elife S5.1 runs Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) out of the box.

Pricing and availability

Gionee Elife S5.1 is not yet available in Nigeria. We currently have no data on pricing and availability. When available, Gionee Elife S5.1 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N46,500 to N53,000, depending on your location in the country.

Gionee Marathon M3 Specs & Price

Gionee Marathon M3 is the latest generation of Gionee's Marathon family of smartphones with very high battery stamina. Gionee Marathon M3 is a successor of the Marathon M2 and boasts of an amazing 5000 mAh battery offering an out of this world 32.5 hours talktime.

Gionee Marathon M3

The Display

Gionee Marathon M3 features a 5-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. The display uses the One-Glass Solution (OGS) which is a technique that removes one glass layer from the traditional touchscreen panel and replaces it with an insulating layer. In short, OGS cuts down on the thickness of the display, creating an improved touchscreen experience while the company responsible saves money in the process.

Processor and Memory

Gionee Marathon M3 is powered by a 1.3GHz, Cortex A7 processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage. While the built-in storage is less than stellar, the Gionee Marathon M3 does provide a microSD card slot for an additional 128GB of storage expansion for those who can’t get enough storage.

The Battery

The Gionee Marathon M3’s best feature, by far, is its battery. Make sure you’re sitting down when you read this next sentence.

The Gionee Marathon M3 offers a 5000 mAh battery, which Gionee promises will provide up to 32 hours of 3G talk time, 51 hours of 2G talk time, and up to 33 days on standby. To put this into perspective, keep in mind that the Motorola Droid Turbo (known beyond Europe as the Motorola Droid Maxx) has a battery size of 3900 mAh.

The Marathon in the name is aimed to suggest that the smartphone can endure long hours of usage without recharge and with up to 32 hours talktime, the Gionee Marathon M3 is very impressive considering that the M2 could only last 24 hours.

Gionee notes that the weight of the device has been provided “without battery,” which means that the monster battery will add some additional heft to the device.

The Cameras

Gionee Marathon M3 has a 2 megapixels front camera and an 8 megapixels rear camera with HD video recording. The best of the Marathon M3 camera experience is more in the software than the camera sensors anyway. When you peel away the standard cameras, you’ll find that Gionee has added some interesting camera software features such as Smile Shot, Gesture Shot, Face Detection, Geo-Tagging, Eraser, and vertical and horizontal Panorama camera shots.

In Conclusion

Gionee Marathon M3 runs on Google’s Android 4.4.2 (KitKat). The battery is the best thing about the Gionee Marathon M3, and the 720p screen resolution will conserve your battery even more, while still offering a brilliant view.

If you can never get too much battery, and have that as your number one priority above all else, you can’t go wrong with the Marathon M3.

Pricing and availability

Gionee Marathon M3 is not yet available in Nigeria. We currently have no data on pricing and availability. When available, Gionee Marathon M3 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N30,500 to N40,000, depending on your location in the country.

ZTE ZMax Specs & Price

ZTE ZMax Phablet

Hardware & Software

ZTE ZMax features a 5.7-inch TFT screen with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 protection and a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.

The Grand XMax features only 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage; the ZTE ZMax, in contrast, features 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage (while providing the same 32GB microSD card slot). While these specs are not groundbreaking, they have become expected standards for high-end and mid-range devices.

ZTE ZMax features a 1.6 megapixels front camera (an improvement from the 1MP camera of the Grand X Max) and an 8 megapixels rear camera. The autofocus and 1080p video capture places the device on par with Samsung, Apple, and the devices of other Android manufacturers (such as Sony with its Xperia Z line).

Aside from the 1080p video capture, autofocus, improved front camera, smaller screen, and improved RAM and memory storage, the ZTE ZMax a similar 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm processor (in this case, a Snapdragon 400). Additionally, ZTE ZMax is loaded with Android 4.4 (KitKat).

The battery size becomes ZTE’s forte on the ZTE ZMax. It features 3,400 mAh battery – larger than that of the Motorola Nexus 6 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. With a 720p HD screen resolution, the 3,400mAh battery should be more than enough to get you through a day and a half or two of battery life. In addition, ZTE says that the large battery should provide 14 hours of talk time, a statement that should make consumers happy.

In short, the ZTE ZMax is the best of ZTE that can compete with other well-known Android manufacturers. For those who don’t need the best camera on the market, the ZTE ZMax should more than suffice, and the ZTE ZMax will serve the same purpose as the iPhone 6 Plus’s 8MP camera serves for Apple consumers. As for the ZMax’s battery life, however, it’s the best of the class for 2014, and the lower screen resolution should make the experience even better.

Pricing & Availability

ZTE ZMax is not available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in Nigeria. ZTE ZMax price in Nigeria is expected to range from N35,000 to N42,000 depending on your location in the country.

ZTE Grand XMax Specs & Price

ZTE Grand XMax is a mid-range phablet with a massive 6.0-inch screen that is great for watching movies, reading, browsing the web. Aside the large display, the ZTE Grand XMax offers a modest lineup of features, but considering the price it is a great value.

ZTE Grand XMax

Hardware & Software

ZTE’s Grand X Max doesn’t feature a display that will make your mouth drool, but the 720 x 1280 pixels resolution will conserve battery life – to some extent. ZTE says that the phablet will provide 6.5 hours of talk time, nothing short of underwhelming when you consider that most high-end devices will provide at least 12 hours of battery life. Devices such as Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus provides something near 24 hours of talk time on a single charge. However, when you consider the pricing, the ZTE Grand XMax does look like a great deal.

ZTE Grand XMax comes with 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded with a microSD card for an additional 32GB of memory storage. It sports a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and runs on Android 4.4.2 (KitKat).

As for the camera experience, you’re looking at a 1 megapixels front camera and an 8 megapixels back camera with 4x digital zoom (not optical zoom, nor optical image stabilization here).

Finally, ZTE Grand XMax offers a Qualcomm QuickCharge 1.0 tech feature that lets your device recharge quickly when your battery dies. ZTE Grand XMax's battery charges fast, charging the battery by 30% in 30 minutes.

Pricing & Availability

ZTE Grand XMax is not available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in Nigeria. ZTE Grand XMax price in Nigeria is expected to range from N33,500 to N40,000 depending on your location in the country.

LG G2 Lite Specs & Price

LG G2 Lite was announced around the same time as the LG L Prime, and we don’t know why LG returned to the G2 nomenclature for the budget-friendly device. Perhaps it’s the case that the company wants to revive the G2 excitement which led to a turn around for the Korean manufacturer.

Where to Buy LG Android Phones

Jumia.com.ng from ₦11,400.00 View Offer
Konga.com from ₦14,940.00 View Offer


LG G2 Lite

Hardware & Software

The LG G2 Lite has a smaller display (4.5 inches) compared to G2 Mini (4.7 inches). The display features a 480 x 800 pixels screen resolution (207ppi). LG G2 Lite runs on Android 4.4.2 (KitKat).

As for the processor, LG G2 Lite is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot for memory storage expansion. There’s a VGA front-facing camera, and LG stuck with an 8 megapixels rear camera on the G2 Lite – though it can't handle 720p video recording, just 480p Video.

The LG G2 Lite, along with the LG L Prime, is now available in Brazil. The LG G2 Lite will cost 615 Brazilian Reals ($269USD), around the same amount as the LG L Prime (which looks to be somewhere around 750 Brazilian Reals, or $275USD). LG says that the G2 Lite and the L Prime will be available in other markets outside of Brazil, but US citizens should not expect to see these devices.

After all, LG still got its G2 on sale here in the US, alongside of the new and improved LG G3 – and the company’s Nexus 5 device will compete fairly with Motorola’s inexpensive Moto G and Moto E offerings. The device will prove to be the perfect hand size for some, and LG’s usual Knock Code and other software features will find their way to the G2 Lite as well.

Pricing and availability

LG G2 Lite is targeted for Brazil and is not yet available in Nigeria. However, when available the LG G2 Lite Price in Nigeria is expected to range between N45,000 to N55,000, depending on your location.

LG L Prime Specs & Price

The "Prime" name for high-end smartphones was tossed around earlier in 2014, but no high-end phone was ever released bearing the “Prime” label. For some reason, LG decided to save the Prime label for more inexpensive smartphones that would attract budget-friendly consumers. LG L Prime stands in the lower-entry budget segment.

The inexpensive smartphone features a 5-inch IPS with a 480 x 854 resolution (pixel density: 196 pixels per inch). Under the hood, the LG L Prime features a 1.3GHz, quad-core processor and runs on Google’s Android 4.4.2 (KitKat).

The 8GB of internal memory storage may not prove sufficient for most users, but LG L Prime provides a microSD card slot for an additional 32GB of storage expansion if needed.

A 1.3 megapixels front camera, 8 megapixels rear camera with 720p HD video recording, and a 2,460mAh battery round out the noticeable features of the device. The 8 megapixels back camera is stellar for a low-end device such as the LG L Prime (keep in mind that the LG G3, the company’s high-end 2014 device, has a 13MP camera).

For those who always want something extra, LG has provided an internal antenna that lets you change TV channels with the L Prime.

Pricing and availability

LG L Prime is targeted for Brazil and is not yet available in Nigeria. However, when available the LG L Prime Price in Nigeria is expected to range between N45,000 to N55,000, depending on your location.

LG G Flex 2 Specs & Price

The LG G Flex 2 is a followup of last year's G Flex. Compared to the LG G Flex, the G Flex2 offers a respectable specs lineup including the 64-bit, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 and smaller, but more brilliant 5.5-inch Curved P-OLED display.

Where to Buy LG Android Phones

LG G Flex 2
The G Flex series started last year as a way for the Korean manufacturer to brush shoulders with a fellow competitor, Samsung, and release a phone that would test the limits of interesting smartphone form factors.

LG did some things right with the G Flex 2, but everyone is still not convinced on the Curved form factor. We will also try to compare the G Flex 2 with the original G Flex smartphone.

The Display

The original G Flex featured a 6-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (245ppi). In contrast, the LG G Flex 2 comes with a 5.5-inch, P-OLED (acronymic for plastic OLED) display with a better screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (403ppi).

Here, LG scaled down the display half an inch to make the device similar LG G3 (and thereby make it more comfortable to hold), while maintaining an acceptable screen resolution (though brighter) alongside of LG’s Plastic OLED technology.

We’ve seen LG’s plastic OLED technology before in the first G Flex, but LG has now placed the P-OLED display in the company’s second Android Wear smartwatch (called the G Watch R). The P-OLED displays are one unique contribution LG has in the mobile space.

More Differences

LG reduced the display size to make G Flex 2 more consumer-friendly than its predecessor, but there are few additional differences between the LG G Flex 2 and its ancestor.

LG G Flex 2 comes with Google’s latest Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box and this is sure to please Android fans. The company also added a new 64-bit processor to the LG G Flex 2 package, bringing along two quad-core processors (ARM Cortex A57 + ARM Cortex A53), clocking at 2.0GHz and 1.5GHz respectively to produce an octa-core processor that can run both quad-core processors at the same time.

Android manufacturers have always had an implicit goal in mind of “futureproofing” their devices, with this processor and 3GB of RAM, it safe to say that the LG G Flex 2 is future-proof for a couple of years.

LG added Optical Image Stabilization (or OIS) to the 13 megapixels rear camera on the G Flex2 (a feature absent in the first generation G Flex), and even provides microSD card support for its two memory storage models (16GB, 32GB). Last year’s G Flex was a 32GB device, but LG decided to provide two memory storage models (with different pricing, no doubt) to appeal to consumers who always want to “save at the counter” but may purchase expandable storage down the line.

Much of the same

LG G Flex 2 offers the same 2.1 megapixels front camera and 13 megapixels back camera (despite the new OIS photo tech), but the battery life has been reduced from 3,500mAh down to 3,000mAh in the G Flex 2 (likely due to the reduced screen size).

You should still get stellar battery life because the battery is still robust at 3,000mAh, and the new battery-saving mode within Google’s Android 5.0 Lollipop will provide additional on-screen time to help you eke out the battery life you desire. The self-healing cover is still part of the mix, though improved.

With that said, however, an octa-core processor (or two quad-core processors), better resolution, and OIS photo tech are not all that make a great smartphone. If we were talking about the LG G4, these new additions wouldn’t be enough, although they would be a step in the right direction.

When buying this phone, the best question to ask yourself comes down to the form factor: is the “curved” display enough to grab your attention or the eyes of those around you? What is the curve for in the display, if not just to “sit there”? We hoped that LG would find a purpose or utility for the curved display, but it seems as though we’re still expecting too much – even out of the company’s second-generation display.

Pricing and availability

LG G Flex 2 is not yet available in Nigeria, but some stores in Europe have started taking pre-orders. We currently have no data on pricing and availability for Nigeria. When available, LG G Flex2 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N120,000 to N150,000 at launch.

Xiaomi Mi Note Pro Specs & Price

Mi Note Pro is Xiaomi's flagship phone for 2015. It is exactly the same size as the Mi Note, but offers a more brilliant display, Zippier octa-core processor, more RAM (4GB), and comes with the all new Android 5.0.1 (Lollipop) out of the box for a more solid performance that justifies the Pro branding. Xiaomi Mi Note Pro also features state of the art Cat9 LTE with download speeds of up to 450 Mbps for superfast downloads and seamless HD video streaming.

Where to Buy Mobile Phones

Jumia.com.ngfrom ₦2,800.00 View Offers


Hardware & Software

Xiaomi Mi Note Pro retains the same 5.7-inch IPS display of the Mi Note, but the display resolution have been increased from 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD) to 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) for a more brilliant view for watching movies, browsing the web, reading, and playing games.

Xiaomi Mi Note Pro boasts of the octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, which consists of a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and a 2.0GHz quad-core processor. This when combined with the 4GB RAM leaves no one in doubt the Xiaomi is not compromising on performance with the Mi Note Pro.

Xiaomi Mi Note Pro sports a 3,090mAh battery, slightly larger than the 3,000mAh battery of the Mi Note. It may be the case that you won’t notice the slight increase in battery life, but that depends on the performance of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor (which utilizes eight cores – octa-core – instead of the four cores of the Snapdragon 801).

Xiaomi Mi Note Pro retains some similarity to the Mi Note, one being its cameras. Just like the Mi Note, Xiaomi’s Mi Note Pro features a 13 megapixels rear camera and a 4 megapixels front camera.

As does the Mi Note, the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro features Gorilla Glass 3 on the front display and the back cover, with an aluminum metal band around the device. Both front and back glass comes with a curved design.

The Conclusion

Xiaomi Mi Note Pro comes with a few more advanced features such as a Quad HD screen resolution, octa-core processor, more RAM, and a slightly larger battery. For the changes between the Mi Note Pro and the regular Mi Note, you’ll pay an extra 1,000 yuan ($150 more) more for the Mi Note Pro than the Mi Note (3,299 yuan vs. 2,299 yuan, respectively).

The company claimed during its presentation that the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro take their inspirational cues from the iPhone, but we get the feeling that Apple is not the only top tech company that inspired Xiaomi.

Pricing and availability

Xiaomi currently does not sell mobile phones in Nigeria. According to Xiaomi the focus of their expansion for 2015 will be India, Brazil, and Indonesia. However, the company expects to be global by 2020. So, the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro may never officially sell in Nigeria. We currently have no data on pricing and availability. If available, Xiaomi Mi Note Price Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N113,000 to N120,000.

Samsung Galaxy A7 Specs & Price

Samsung Galaxy A7 is a new member of the Galaxy ASeries line of smartphone with premium metal finish following the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3. It is also the first phablet in the line offering a brilliant 5.5-inch display great for watching movies, browsing the web, and playing games.

Samsung Galaxy A7
Samsung smartphones such as the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, and Galaxy S5 have been accused of having a cheap look because of their plastic build. Metal offers a more premium look and Galaxy A7 is the most premium member of the line with an octa-core processor and a brilliant 5.5-inch display.

The Display

Samsung Galaxy A7 features a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED, Full HD display (1080 x 1920 pixels), with a punchy and vivid colours while emitting light from within the display itself (not with a display backlight, as is the case with LCD screens). Samsung’s Galaxy A7 is positioned to be a mid-range smartphone, but, from the display alone, it will compete head-to-head with Apple’s 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus (that bears the same Full HD resolution with an LCD screen instead of an AMOLED screen).

Processor and Memory

The Samsung Galaxy A7 has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage, which you can add additional 64GB via microSD.

The 2GB of RAM in the Samsung Galaxy A7 combines with an octa-core chipset consisting of two quad-core processors to deliver a smooth performance. Two options are available: the first is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 housing a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and a 1GHz quad-core processor comes with the dual-SIM models, while the other is a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa 5430 consisting of a 1.8GHz quad-core processor and a 1.3GHz quad-core processor.

The Camera

Samsung Galaxy A7 features a 5 megapixels front camera that provides a Wide Selfie feature that allows you to take pictures of you and a group of people (“We-fies” as opposed to “selfies”). Samsung's own Galaxy Note 4 has a 3.7MP front camera, so selfie lovers will enjoy the 5 megapixels front camera. This is a trend we hope Samsung continues with its Galaxy S6 that will be released later this year.

On the back of the Samsung Galaxy A7 is a 13 megapixels camera with autofocus and LED flash that provides a rear-cam selfie feature alongside of Full HD (1080p) video.

The Battery

Samsung Galaxy A7 houses a 2,600mAh battery, a battery size that matches most batteries we’ve seen from Taiwanese manufacturer HTC in the last year or so. While it is slightly under that of the 2013 Galaxy Note 3 (3,200mAh), Galaxy S5 (2,800mAh), and the Galaxy Note 4 (3,220mAh), Samsung brings over its Power and Ultra Power Saving modes from its 2014 smartphones to the Galaxy A7.

With that said, you’re likely to get days out of your battery if you use the Ultra Power Saving Mode and allow most features to be disabled while using only a few (text, phone, Wi-Fi, 3G/4G, Memo, Facebook, Google+, Chrome).

Final Thoughts

Samsung Galaxy A7, as the high-end metal device of Samsung’s mid-range offerings, will likely cost somewhere between $350-$500. The Galaxy S6 is sure to cost $600, and Samsung will not want to eclipse its Galaxy S sales.

The Galaxy A7 is pre-loaded with Android 4.4 KitKat, so there’s been no word as of yet on when the A7 will receive Android 5.0 (Lollipop). Samsung has decided to halt its Galaxy Alpha line to focus on the mid-range smartphone category, so the A7 is sure to get Lollipop as soon as Samsung can update it.

Samsung's back has been pushed to the wall lately with declining sales, but the company still managed to deposit $4.5 billion in the bank in Q4 2014 – which still beating the profits of all its Android OEM competitors. Still, Samsung’s “mettle” is in the “metal” Galaxy A7, A5, and A3.

Samsung Galaxy A7 outweighs Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus, and anyone considering a top-notch experience would do well to save the $300 extra money you’d pay for an iPhone 6 Plus and pick up Samsung’s mid-range offering. From the 2,600mAh battery and two battery-saving modes, down to the microSD card slot, better cameras, and octa-core processor, Samsung’s Galaxy A7 will make you think twice about picking up that shiny smartphone with a fruit logo on the back.

Pricing and availability

Samsung Galaxy A7 is not yet available in Nigeria, but global launch begins in Q1, 2015. We currently have no data on pricing and availability for Nigeria. When available, Samsung Galaxy A7 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N80,000 to N110,000 at launch.
