At half the price, Gionee Elife E7 matches Samsung Galaxy S5 in a camera comparison

gionee-elife-e7-vs-samsung-galaxy-s5

gionee-elife-e7-vs-samsung-galaxy-s5Samsung Galaxy S5 s camera is certainly one of the best among this year s flagship devices and has impressed reviewers with the quality of photos, fast auto focus and the HDR mode. But what if you could get the similar level of performance from a smartphone nearly half the price? The folks at Tech2 pit the Galaxy S5 s 16-megapixel camera against the Gionee Elife E7 s snapper and the results were interesting to say the least.

For the comparison, the reviewer clicked photos in different conditions including low light, outdoors, macro (indoors and outdoors), panorama, and burst mode. In all the tests the Galaxy S5 came up top, which is to be expected. But the surprising thing was just how close the Elife E7 came to matching the former s performance.

Though the Galaxy S5 trumps the Elife E7 in the low-light mode, the results of the macro and outdoor shots are difficult to distinguish. It is only when you zoom in that you notice the differences. While this is expected from Samsung s superior image sensor, what we must also consider is the price difference. The Gionee Elife E7 is priced at Rs 26,999, which is almost half of the price tag of Rs 51,500 that the Samsung Galaxy S5 carries.

Here is another example how some of these Chinese smartphone vendors are increasingly coming up with devices dubbed flagship killers. These devices essentially boast high-end features comparable if not better than most of the flagship devices from tier-one companies like Samsung, Sony and HTC, and are offered at half the cost.

Gionee s Elife E7 impressed us with the hardware quality and performance, and felt that it was a good device only let down by the user interface. This again proves that these companies are not achieving the aggressive pricing by cutting corners or building low quality hardware, and instead are saving on operations and marketing.
