This device is decent enough with the specifications at offer but the absence of expandable memory is a drawback for the device with just 16GB at offer and the device is not coming with Android Kitkat 4.4 and if you look for similar specifications Redmi 1S also comes in the same category and is priced much lower than Gionee Elife S5.1.
