The Gionee Elife E7 has just got a software update which although isn’t upgrading the firmware version to a newer one, brings a few interesting changes and additions to the UI of the smartphone. The Amigo UI which is already different from the other ROMs, driving inspiration from the iOS from Apple, gets a new theme and wallpaper, and there is a big update to the GameZone application which will show a new UI.
To add to the standard keyboard types, this update will bring the new Touchpal input method, and the final change that the users would get to see is the Weather app which was earlier showing just the Celcius degree temperature, but now after the update, there is a support for the Fahrenheit temperature display. A single toggle button would be shown, turning on would show Celcius while turning it off would show it in Fahrenheit.

The update is of 108.03MB in size, and it has been showing automatically for many users, while others will have to manually search for the update by either going to the System Updates app from the app list and manually check for the update. The other way you could check for the update, is by going to Settings > About and there a section for System updates is available, which would again take you to the same System updates app.
A new theme called “Talent showing itself” is included in this update, and this one looks pretty good with the green wallpaper and the new set of icons, which although looks confusing for the first time users, would give the users a different feel making it unique.
It would take around 10 minutes for the update to be applied after the download completes and the phone restarts, so ensure that the Elife E7 has got a battery capacity of at least 60%. Do let us know below if you are facing any issues while downloading and installing the update in your Elife E7.
