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
