Gionee S5.5

Five smartphones from China , which you have not heard

We have one smartphone pronounced forte and one serious drawback. The first – a cool, unusual design, coupled with the materials of the shell, it uses glass and metal – a great mix for a premium device. Do not expect to see such a body in the Chinese unit. At the same time managed to make Gionee S5.5 the world’s thinnest smartphone (thickness is incorporated in the model name – 5.5 mm), but also pack in quite a modern housing “iron”.

Second, the lack of the high cost. Even in China, the model is not cheap, but if she was being taken to Russia, the price tag becomes altogether frighteningly high – about 17 000 to 18 000 rubles. And if the price of 15 000-16 000 for IUNI U2 in Russia seems to be more or less justified; in the device characteristics are combined with the top right assembled and compact metal housing, which does not actually have on the market, the Gionee S5.5 screen with a diagonal of 5 ‘, and hence, the size of a smartphone is the same as many other devices. In this case, one of the chips, subtlety body will appreciate not all. It turns out that this smartphone should be considered as demonstration of Chinese manufacturers. Yes, they can already do on their own interest in design and materials of the enclosure, and, yes, it will be expensive.

Five smartphones from China , which you have not heard

Mysterious and strange project from a Chinese businessman in his time Smartisan T1 actively advertised in China and rumors about the device even went beyond Asia. Eldar Murtazin said that is Smartisan T1 from a business perspective:

I’ll try to briefly describe the technical component. Smartphone on the Qualcomm Snapdragon platform 801, already accustomed to the devices of the Chinese-there is no slot for a memory card, but just a set of 2 GB RAM + 16 or 32 GB of flash memory. Draws attention Smartisan T1 primarily design and its shell, representing a mix of interfaces, Android and Windows Phone; tiled menu, but it entered icons, plus the total concise and sometimes a lot of free, empty space, which is typical for WP.

If we talk about the design of the smartphone, then it is made so as to best look spectacular on the renderers and processed images.Seriously, the machine where the front and back panels are made of glass, very dirty and in reality may look impressive and beautiful, but if it is constantly cleaned, especially if the device is black. Prints is not very noticeable when under glass some print material with pattern, texture, but here it is not.

Smartisan T1 problem is that when you create a unit, emphasis was placed precisely on a powerful display. Yes, it came to fruition, he looks impressive smartphone, it is packaged in a luxury box, and every detail is supplied and the device literally screaming about how everything is carefully and thoroughly thought through. But the price of the smartphone in China – about 3,000 yuan for a simple version (no LTE), which is about $ 500 or 18 000.

At the same time in China sold as “good” with similar characteristics and lower price that the head around, and one of the best examples – smartphone blizkoi to Smartisan T1 parameters and significantly cheaper – Xiaomi Mi3.
