Just when you thought that most mobile phones are created in Western countries, you are so mistaken. Actually, there are many mobile phones that are created in Asian countries; it is just that some of them do not get the spotlight it truly deserves.
Elephone, a Hong Kong-based mobile phone manufacturer, wanted to make a name for itself in the Mobile phone industry. Some other Chinese OEM manufacturers such as Huawei and Oppo have already reached the Western Market, so it wants to follow suit with its other OEM counterparts.
Today, we are going to talk about the Elephone P8000. This phone is one of their flagship models and I think that it’s got some pretty interesting specs. This phone is considered to be one of their flagship models. Does it have what it takes to compete with other mobile phones in this category? We will find out in this article.
The Elephone P8000 has a premium quality build. It’s got an all-metal chassis and some carbon fiber material for the rear panel. It kind of feels weird at first but the carbon fiber material used should increase the durability of the phone even more.
This mobile phone only weighs 205 grams with an overall thickness of 10.1mm. It is quite hefty when compared to other mobile phones, but that is okay since the phone has some nice features under the hood, which will talk about later.
The display of the Elephone P8000 is a 5.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920×1080 and a pixel density of 401ppi. It’s got the same number of pixels compared to other mobile phones within the price range so there really isn’t anything new here.
I do love the fact that it comes with a respectable 5.5-inch screen and also an IPS display panel at that. I always love IPS panels especially when I am looking to make my phone as a media device.
Most Chinese OEMs do fit their phones with near similar specs and that is also evident with this phone. The Elephone P8000 comes with the 64-bit MediaTek MT6753 which has a clock speed of 1.3GHz and it also has the Mali-T720 GPU and a good amount of RAM at 3GB.
If you use this mobile phone for general productivity purposes and light gaming, this phone will really help you get things done. It does have some noticeable lag when playing graphic intensive games, though. Still, the performance is good for the price.
The camera of the Elephone P8000 is a bit disappointing. Although the specs of the camera look good on paper (13-megapixel rear; 5-megapixel front), both of the cameras do not have extra features. At least, they could’ve slapped in the Optical Image stabilization feature, it would’ve been better.
Still, this phone comes with a very hefty battery life of 4,000 MaH battery capacity. The Elephone P8000 also comes with Dual SIM slots that you can use and it also supports 4G LTE connectivity as well. This phone doesn’t have a good signal receiver, though, so you may want to have a mobile phone signal booster to help with the signal reception.
The Elephone P8000, although a flagship phone, is pretty much a midrange phone offering for me. Still, it is good and could potentially be a good phone for everyday use.
