Gionee Elife E6 Review

Amongst the many upstarts in the indigenous smartphone scene in India, one specific brand has caught our eye. Gionee has differentiated itself with its refreshing focus on design and hardware quality. Handsets like Elife E3 stood out from the competition being a device that both looked and also offered a very unique experience to the user. With the Elife E6, Gionee is kicking this up a notch. We’d previously done a preview of the device and here’s our review of the Gionee Elife E6. Continue reading “Gionee Elife E6 Review”

Gionee Elife E6 Hands On


As Gionee enters the Indian smartphone market, the only thought that crosses everyone’s mind is that here is yet another ‘Chinese’ smartphone maker here to peddle mediocre products with negligible after sales support. When the company invited us to visit its manufacturing facilities, we jumped on the opportunity to see what actually goes on behind the scenes. However that is a story for another day as today we’ll check out Gionee’s upcoming flagship product.  Continue reading “Gionee Elife E6 Hands On”

Nokia X7 and E6 Finally Shipping

Nokia just announced via its Nokia Conversations corporate blog that it has begun shipping its latest Symbian devices , the Nokia X7 and E6 as of today. The Nokia X7 is a monoblock form factor device with a 4″ screen and the same internals as the Nokia E7 and other Symbian 3 devices. The Nokia E6 on the other hand makes it a bit more interesting by mixing the classic portrait qwerty design of the E72 with a new high resolution touch screen panel and upgrading the specs all over. Now with the same internals as other S^3 devices , the phone has what can be termed as a retina display.

Nokia Deep Dive: Nokia E6 hands on pictures!

I have been invited to a nice little event here from Nokia Austria, dubbed “Nokia Deep Dive”. The whole event was made to show a handful of bloggers and developers here in Austria, the newly introduced Symbian Anna and the 2 new devices that will come with it out of the box, the Nokia E6 and X7.

Starting off with the Nokia E6, i can not tell you how much i like this device. Being a long time E71/E72 fan, i always had a weak spot and was always hoping for a worthy replacement. And while some of you might disagree because of the camera, I’m fine with what i get. I’m not a fan of Nokia’s recent idea of full focus cameras either, but usability still is No.1 for me. My hopes were high for a successor, that gets rid of the dusty old Symbian S60 3rd edition, and Nokia delivered. They even went on and replaced the old QVGA screens with a shiny new capacitive, multitouch touchscreen with a brand new VGA resolution. This results in a 326ppi, in other words, the screen is extremely sharp.

More on the Device and Symbian Anna in an upcoming post, meanwhile enjoy the pictures I took at the event, showing you all the sweet spots of the Nokia E6! As usual, all those pictures can be found in full resolution over at flickr, in my Nokia E6 picture set!

Say Hello to the Nokia E6!
