Gionee released the mini version of its Elife E7 called as the Elife E7 mini that was released in the month of April earlier this year. This mini version of the flagship device has a 4.7 inch HD display with a pixel density of 312 ppi. This device runs Android Jelly Bean Operating System with the company’s own Amigo UI (User Interface) on top. The interesting part of this handset is its camera where a 13 MP swirl camera is used that can be rotated to be used as the rear camera as well as the front camera giving high quality video calling and selfies.
Apart from these the device is powered by a Octa core Mediatek MT6592 processor that will clocking at a speed of 1.7 GHz coupled with Mali 450MP4 GPU and 1 GB of RAM. This handset is available in 16 GB variant and sadly there is no microSD card slot to extend the memory. The device is a dual SIM variant and will be powered by a 2200 mAh battery on the back. Now let us see how this battery will work when you will use it the way you want.
- 1st Test – Music Playback
- 2nd Test – Video Playback
- 3rd Test – Browsing
- 4th Test – Gaming
- 5th Test – Normal Usage
Note – These tests are done with the maximum volume, Wi-Fi Switched on, brightness levels-medium and few applications running on the back ground. Moreover there might be a few minute changes in the results that you get with your device and we are not responsible for the difference in it.
Who does not listen to music? Well almost everyone does and it is done mostly with Smart phones and so we have listen to music on the Elife E7 mini and found that the battery consumed on it after 30 minutes was 11% making it a 22% down in one hour. With this rate the device will die in 5 hours which is not that bad comparing to many other devices in the market.
This a pretty much expect as we are running few apps on the back and even there are some downloads going on. In spite of having a 2200 mAh battery on the back, we could have expected little more battery life this but we also have to consider that the screen was ON for the enter test period. So after considering all the factors, Gionee Elife E7 Mini get’s a score of 3 on 5 for the Audio Playback.
Rating – 3 / 5

HD Video playback
The battery was down by 12 % as it was in the case of FHD playback, so there is nothing much to differentiate between the both. Even here the battery will be lasting for 4.16 hours for continuous HD video playback.
