Ellen Adarna Endorses the World’s Slimmest Smartphone

July 14, 2014

There were only two women who made me insecure. I easily got over it, and life was a bliss. Until came, Ellen Adarna.

Yesterday, I attended the launch of the World’s Slimmest Smart Phone and before Ellen was introduced as the new brand ambassador, they showed a video showing her playful self – dancing with the new Gionee Elife S5.5 smart phone.

When she was called on stage by the host, Giselle Sanchez, my insecurity level went up from 5 to 9 (almost reaching the maximum of 10!).

I cannot deny that she has such a beautiful face, a body that every woman would envy, and a confidence that shines from within. She truly embodies the international mobile brand, Gionee’s campaign #LiveSexy which means being consistently in touch with what makes you feel good inside and out. With a body as slim as that, who wouldn’t feel confident? I heard Ellen Adarna is the new face body of Bench Body.

It is the same air of confidence that Gionee (a China based mobile phone manufacturer) radiates for the Elife S5.5 smart phone. It was actually my first time to hear about this brand, but it sure knows how to make an impact. 

Ellen talked about how much she loves Gionee Elife S5.5 which perfectly fits her lifestyle. She raved about the Beauty Apps that serve as guide to her fitness and beauty regimen.

She specifically loves the two high resolution cameras – the primary one with 13 megapixels and the front camera with 5 megapixels. The front camera is impressive because it its 95-degree ultra-wide angle which allows more people, and more scenery when taking a selfie. Ellen also swore that the camera can make her look even thinner!

During the interview, Ellen just kept on dropping her Gionee ElifeS5.5 and she’s not worried at all! The Elife S5.5 is covered with the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance that is 3 to 5 times more durable compared to the second generation after tests which provides decreased scratches by 40% and increased compressive strength by 50%. To make it look sleek and delicate, the slimmest smart phone is the first smart phone to be made of 98% metal and glass.

Elife S5.5 is not all about beautiful package (like a beautiful woman, there should be something between the ears!). The Elife S5.5 is equipped with octa-core chipset at 1.7 GHHz, the kind of processing power that were initially limited to bulky laptops. With such power, it can play high-definition movies while using apps simultaneously.

My friend and I agreed that even these shots were taken 
candidly, she still looked pretty. I love to hate her.. 😉
Gionee awarded new phones to lucky Facebook followers. This guy is one lucky owner of the new Elife S5.5! I think he also got a kiss from Ellen! Members of the media also instantly won yesterday. Too bad, luck was not on my side, but thank you Gionee for the new phone in our kit! 😉 

For the rest of the audience, Roxanne Barcelo treated them with a hot number
(I am officially an insecure woman! Haha)
I didn’t let the day end without experiencing the slimmest smart phone in the world.

What do you think of the new Gionee Elife S5.5?
Would you buy it?
PS. I would like to think that I once possessed a slim body like that of Ellen’s.. and it hurts me so bad to see her looking so thin and slim, – while I, now worry of my angle and position whenever someone is taking my picture (!!!) I should really stop with all the crazy, careless foodtrips, and get serious with keeping fit and staying healthy. Okay, Ellen, I would make you my real inspiration. Now somebody hand me the boxing gloves, please..?
