Ellen Adarna maybe petitle and slim, but she's also tough and doughty.
"O, bakit? Anong problema mo diyan," she yelled at a male fan who repeatedly screamed her name at the launch of Gionee ELIFE S5.5 last Sunday, July 13, in SM North EDSA Annex, Quezon City.
A few may take her boldness as the anti-thesis of her angelic look. But many actually find it refreshing!
Her TV commercial for Gionee captured her very carefree personality.
"Super saya ng mga shot. Sayaw-sayaw lang!"
And the handset—the ELIFE S5.5—is very much like her.
"Kahit ihulog ko siya, hindi iyan masisira," she remarked, dropping the phone, which remained scratch-free, undented, and functional.
The unit is made of 98 percent metal and glass—specifically, the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 that is said to be three times more durable.
Add to this, Ellen said, "Hindi siya madaling ma-low bat."
The small package comes with a "2,300mAH battery and a 1.7GHz octa-core chipset, a processing power that were intially limited to bulky laptops."
Simply put, it claimed that it can last longer than smartphones.
Ellen resumed, "I like the insta-selfie camera and the instant make-up."
ELIFE S5.5 can capture an image in a "95-degree ultra-wide angle."
In a demo, Gionee's head of global marketing, Oliver Sha, showed that it can capture five instead of just three subjects.
And as Ellen mentioned, you need not worry about your "bagong-gising" look because the phone has its own image and video editor.
THE HIGHLIGHT: it claims to be the world's slimmest phone.
In his presentation, Oliver Sha underscored, "It has the world's thinnest cover, only 0.55 mm"; it has the slimmest AMOLED screen; it has the slimmest main-board design."
Its total thickness is merely 5.5 mm.
Ellen affirmed, "It's much lighter and thinner..."
As add-ons, it has BeautyApps, and it's available in five colors: black, white, blue, pink, and purple.
And for all that features, plus a realiable "signal" anywhere, its tag price is PHP 21,999.00.
Before leaving the stage with host Giselle Sanchez, Ellen encouraged the crowd to #livesexy!
