Gionee Elife E8 Makes Its Official Debut

Along with the Marathon M5, Gionee also launched its new flagship smartphone called the Gionee Elife E8.

Most of what the rumor mill churned out prior to Gionee’s big reveal were right on the money, which include a 6-inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED display, a respectable engine setup which consists of a 2.0GHz octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM and an ample 64GB internal storage, as well as a sizeable 3,520mAh battery pack.

The rumormongers also predicted that the Elife E8 isn’t going to be a pushover in the imaging department thanks to its 23.7-megapixel rear camera that, with the help of some software sorcery, can spit out pictures with 120-megapixel resolution.

That’s not the end of it either as Gionee was keen to point that the rear shooter is equipped with optical image stabilization and phase detection autofocus system, allowing it lock in on a subject in under one second. The Elife E8’s rear camera also offers up to three times lossless zoom, and can shoot 4K videos.

    Impressive ang spec pero “nye” sa price. Kung sammy/ lg/ sony/ htc sana ang brand nito may hustisya pa. Sana sinundan nila ang path ng asus.

      Maraming factors kung bakit ganyan ang nilagay nilang price. Una, di mo alam kung magkano yung cost ng bawat isang component (AMOLED display, chipset, 4G antenna etc.). Isa pa yung cost ng research and development, kung sila talga gumawa niyan from scratch, may ginastos din sila sa pag design niyan. Yung paggawa ng software may gastos din yun; licensing, r&d, etc.. Consider mo na rin yung marketing (ads) kung meron man, dinadagdag rin nila yun sa overall cost. Yung after sales service nila(warranty) dagdag din yun. Di mo rin masasabi kung overpriced yung mga ganitong brand, di mo alam kung lugi sila o hindi. Malalaman mo lang yun kung nagtratrabaho ka sa corporate side nila.

      ^ +1 to this!

      Tama ka. Pero di na problema ng consumers yun. Ang mahal ay mahal. Ang mura ay mura. Ang sulit ay sulit. Ang Apple ay Apple. Ang Gionee ay Gionee.

    • asd says:

      Yes. Yun na nga yung isa pang point ng post ko. Companies make different phones with different price brackets, buy what fits your price range. Pero kasi sa comment mo parang sinasabi mo (I assumed) na mag adjust ang company at babaan ang SRP nila dahil mga “well known” smartphone companies lang ang dapat mag labas ng high priced and high spec models? Di ata tama yun?

    Compare the parts to how much would it be,, where is it manufactured,, price for each component,,design, etc., you will be amazed that it is absolutely business,, if you buy, you agree with it, you have plenty of money, you dont care about the true side when it comes to cost,, why is it that the clothes you are wearing having the same appearance , the other is slightly better and comfortable,, but the price is not slightly higher,, but twice, or even 3 times,,why,?? Now, how about a phone, say P5000 for each unit for all the effort and money used to create the product, but,, must have say 100th units to even the total cost,, now, its a big company, they got the NAME, then the price of each unit is 30000,,, then, you got to think about it,, will that phone last for 3 years,,? Maybe yes but its price because of technology advancement maybe at 3digits,,think again
