We’re not surprised that #FHM100Sexiest No. 8 and two-time cover girl Ellen Adarna is the Philippine brand ambassador of the world’s sexiest smartphone—she’s the perfect combination of sexy and tough. Just look at her soft curves and hard abs in this promotional video:
Now the question is: Why does the Gionee Elife S5.5 phone hold the official record for being the world’s “sexiest” smartphone? Like Ellen, its charm is not just from its looks, it's also...
1) ITS THIN!
Picture four sheets of your regular office bond paper—that’s the thickness of Elife S5.5’s screen. At 0.4 millimeters, it’s the thinnest in the world so far. And the whole phone? It’s slimmer than your slimmest pen.
2) IT HAS THE TOUGHEST SCREEN!
But just because it’s the thinnest doesn’t mean it’s easily breakable. In fact, it’s the opposite—its glass screen is also the most durable in the world, according to Gionee's Global Marketing Head Oliver Sha. It’s also finger-print proof, so no need to wipe it from time to time.
Ellen even dropped her Elife S5.5 at least five times during the phone’s launch at the SM North EDSA last Sunday, July 13, just to show us that it would still work. It’s also the first smartphone made of 98 percent metal and glass.
3) IT SHOWS YOUR WHOLE BODY!
Ellen also loves selfies, and the Elife S5.5 is built for just that! The phone can perform a particular kind of selfie—the one where your face and lower body, including your feet, would show.
It has a 95-degree ultra-wide angle camera so there’s no need to crop your face out just to show your hard-earned abs, or calves, or designer shoes. Its back camera has 13 megapixels, while its front camera has five megapixels, all with auto-focus and smile-detection features.
4) IT AUTOMATICALLY SLIMS YOUR FACE!
No need to mega-angle your phone above your forehead so you don't look like a siopao, because the Elife S5.5 has a built-in app that already does that for you. Ika nga ni Ellen:
5) IT HAS A SUPER LONG BATTERY LIFE!
It might be super thin and ultra-light (less than 5 oz), but it still packs a heavy-duty battery that can last to up to 490 hours (20.42 days) on standby, or 27 hours with continued talking.
6) ITS OCTA-CORE!
