In the not-so-distant past, Chinese phones had a terrible reputation. They were either knock-offs or just plain cheap phones filled with multiple pointless and annoying features - remember phones with five speakers? You won't see as many of those around now, but for some reason, the reputation has persisted.

Gionee Elife S5.5 Summary

The Gionee Elife S5.5 is a good-looking device and has a gorgeous 1080p screen. However, the camera is not that great, the Amigo UI on top of Android OS is a bit of a mess and it has heating issues.
