Our Opinion

Other than the lack of an expandable memory card slot and the older Android version, Gionee Elife S5.5 definitely bosts of some great power under that slim and sleek body. On the other hand, having the name of Google, Nexus 5 packs a more powerful processor and the latest Android OS 4.4.2, and also a more powerful battery inside it. Nexus 5 also has the additional 32GB variant along with the 16 GB version. In our opinion, Nexus 5 is a powerful smartphone to beat Gionee Elife S5.5, but if you want the slimmest phone with more powerful camera, you can go for the Elife S5.5.
