This is the second time Gionee has announced the update after the Elife S5.5. The update provides an improved game centre along with a new desktop layout, an updated Amigo Paper app for themes and also comes with improved security.

Not much is offered in term of apps coming with this update. Reportedly, Gionee has deleted many previously inbuilt games from the device in order to provide space for apps of the user’s choice.

Not many differences would be seen in the working of the phone, but brings in some neat improvements.

The Elife E7 mini was Gionee’s big Christmas surprise for the users. It came with all the goodies of elder sibling Elife E7 but in a smaller display size. Highlights o the phone are a 4.7-inch display, 1.7GHz processor coupled with 1GB RAM and 13MP rotating camera. The device is available online for around Rs 17,000.
