Gionee Elife E7: A Smartphone that takes DSLR -Quality Photos

Let me introduce you to Gionee Elife E7. You might ask, what's Gionee? First time to hear of Gionee? Well, with the rise of this smartphone brand especially with the introduction of its flagship Elife E7 unit, I am sure you will get to hear of Gionee more.

Before I talk about Gionee Elife E7, let me show you two food pics and a selfie.


Notice the clarity of the pictures. Even if you zoom on them, you will still see the details.

Even with the front camera, this selfie photo is very clear
All of the 3 preceding pictures with DSLR quality were taken using the Gionee Elife E7 camera (including front camera). The Elife E7's camera is perfect for physicians who often have photography as a hobby. Doctors can also take clear pictures of powerpoint slides during conventions with its PPT memo mode feature in it's built-in Charmcam camera app. In the PPT Memo mode, the smartphone automatically cuts, adjusts angles, sharpen images and turn a series of photos of Powerpoint slides into one PDF file for easy viewing and sharing.

The camera app itself has professional and normal digital camera features like Auto mode, Panorama mode, sports mode, HDR, self-timer among others, Perhaps, pictures of slides focused on a microscope will be clear using this phone making it a nice companion for medical students too. Of course, bloggers would love this smartphone unit especially food and travel bloggers.

So what makes the pictures high quality? The front camera is an 8.0MP F2.2 Aperture cam and the rear camera is 16.0MP F2.2 Aperture. With this smartphone, no need to bring bulky cameras. Truly #madeforshooting to #enjoylife .
