Gionee Elife S5.1 Smartphone

with #bendgate making the round in the tech world, Chinese handset maker Gionee is quick to point out that their latest and thinnest Android handset, the Elife S5.1, won’t “bend in your jeans pocket.” quite a sense of humor there, don’t you think? or sarcasm, depending on how you look at it. anyways, the Elife S5.1 is so named 5.1 for its thickness, which stands at an incredible 5.1mm thin. if you think iPhone 6 is thin, then this would be seriously out-of-this-world and on top of that, it is officially recognized by Guinness World Records as the thinnest smartphone in the world, smashing its own record. on the spec-shit, it packs a decent punch, well, except for the display which comes as a 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED touchscreen touting 306ppi.

it has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the front and on the back for some scratch prevention and the entire phone is built around a durable magnesium alloy metal band. under the hood, it has a TRU octa-core 1.7GHz processor with1GB RAM (China set gets quad-core 1.2GHz instead) and has a modest 16GB built-in storage that is, sadly, non-expandable. is it even enough? we have our doubts, seriously. at launch, the device will run on Android 4.4 KitKat-based Amigo OS 2.0 with promised of OTA. imaging department gets a 8.0-megapixel rear-facing autofocus camera with LED flash and HD videoing, while the front gets a 5.0-megapixel item. other details include quad-band GSM/EDGE/HSPDA support (LTE radios on China version), active noise cancellation via dedicated microphone, DTS surround music sound, and a 2,050 mAh battery.
