mcgboye: For lack of better thing to do, I read a review of the E3 and I was impressed. http://gadgets.ndtv.com/mobiles/reviews/gionee-elife-e3-review-382667

I read somewhere about the story of the advent of Tecno into the Nigerian market and I was wondering if those big guys in Ikeja cannot link up with someone in China to have the makers of Gionee set up shop here in Nigeria. An increased presence will be good for everyone. I've recommended the A+ to people because they kept asking me what will happen if they have to repair it. That's something I'll love to have Gionee do. Imagine what that will do to the smartphone market in Nigeria.
Gionee has over 10 CC in Nigeria now.Check their facebook page to confirm

Pls what are the pros and cons of flashing a stock rom with custom ones..??
Re: Gionee Elife E3 Discussion Thread by hephzibah22: 10:51pm On Aug 03, 2013
s3nn2x: I respect you alot to trade words with you, but I have to debunk your statement. I went to Devices and Gadgets in Banex plaza yesterday to get a phone and I was told that the E3 goes for 33k, Dream D1 goes for 38k and the Phantom A+ goes for 39k, I did not buy the E3 because they had only white and red, I can't use any colour of phone except for black. I just had to clear the air.

Just wondering if someone else has been able to flash their E3 with CWM?

@Godvilla,
Not working. Tried all the recovery files at xda including yours now but for some reasons unknown to me it doesn't flash the device. It only reboots.

Did you try this out?

They don't have any CC in Nigeria, it is just marketers making it up to push sales. Also the Gionee Mobile Nigeria facebook page is managed by a marketer and no the company.

Thanks so much for your matured way of handling this matter.God bless you but sincerely,prices varies depending on the source.Phantom A+ that is sold for 39k here is selling for 35k or at times less in my place.the difference in the E3 will be looked into.Thanks so much once again.God bless you real good.

Tremble champ,they do have.Remember when you had a problem with your E3,it was actually done by their CC.their facebook page is different from the one managed by the nigerian marketer.Just search for Gionee on facebook not Gionee Nigeria.Hope it helped?

Please check the link...it's dead.

Well, it is still not working. I wonder if someone else here has had some success with this?

"Reboot into recovery mode"...i choose "OK" then it just restarts the phone without any action. I downloaded one from xda that gave an error while restarting, that is the closest i've come!

Re: Gionee Elife E3 Discussion Thread by Larrybillz(m): 12:34am On Aug 04, 2013
bLacK GoLd: Regarding the Gionee e3 in black color, i have not seen one!

However, the software that comes preloaded on this phone is junk and the user interface is so CHINESE! I have been trying to switch to a custom ROM all day but it is so difficult to even get the slightest support for this device unlike you'd do with a reg phone.

Nevertheless, the audio quality of the phone is superb, the camera is decent but NEVER try to use the flash in low light because it is shitty! The battery life seems better than i expected although i have not put it under intense use.

I doubt if any regular android user would appreciate the interface of this Gionee except when ported to a custom rom. Now where is Godzilla and 4Peace? I need help!!!
Comments like ds. just gimme double tots bout buying ds fone...#just pray I dnt sell ma current fone for nothing n probaably miss out on phanton a+....gooohdd, dah "so chinese "word scare d hell outta me....Godliva shud just help pls, Is ds fone rily WORTH it?
Re: Gionee Elife E3 Discussion Thread by Elxandre(m): 2:17am On Aug 04, 2013
Godvilla, what do you think bout the Gpad2? is it as supported as the e3 (custom roms e.t.c) ?..i really love the size..i dont think i care much about the average 240ppi! and it has 16gb internal storage right?
