And here comes a detailed mobile phone review of Elephone P8000, from its common design, performance, memory, display, camera, battery, network and other points.

Review on Design

This Chinese mobile phone features a metallic side frame with a smooth and polished metal texture. The back of the device is plastic, with a carbon fiber-like finish. These, along with the well-rounded corners on the device, give it a very decent grip and hold in the hand. The heavy weight of the mobile phone (203g) feels disconcerting at first, but the metallic build and the confidence it inspires when held in the hand, makes you quickly accustomed to the weight of the P8000, to the point that other devices start feeling unnecessarily fragile.

Review on Performance and Memory

As a mid-end mobile phone, Elephone P8000 features a MediaTek MT6753 octa core processor, which is said to be a true octa-core processor, meaning the MediaTek MT6753 is a single processor with 8 actual cores instead of the big.Little architecture of dual quad-core processors that most octa-core processors are. The MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor is 64 bit with all the eight cores clocked at 1.3GHz and provides higher-performance and lower-consumption. Backed by the Mali-T720 that has eight processing cores clocked at 650 MHz and performing at 82 giga-FLOPS, Elephone P8000 has a good performance in running games, you can easily be playing the latest graphic-intensive mobile games at 1080p on this phone without a hitch, and with a great framerate too. Coming with 3GB of RAM and Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, Elephone P8000 provides a great and fast experience in multitasking. Inside the phone you’ll find 16GB of internal storage, and if you need more or can’t rely on the cloud for your storage needs, there’s a simple microSD card slot underneath the removable back to expand the memory up to 64GB.

Review on Display

The Elephone P8000 comes with a 5.5″ top-notch IPS LCD display with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, giving the device a pixel density of 440 ppi, something that’s certainly not common in this mobile phone price range.  It has excellent black levels for an LCD panel, great colors that are accurate and not at all over saturated, 178°viewing angles of the phone are surprisingly excellent, keeping the display from changing color or dropping black levels no matter the angle, no light bleed at all from any side, and of course superb brightness outdoors. The adaptive brightness in Android 5.1 Lollipop does a great job at automatically adjusting the brightness when needed. To support the 5-points multi touch well, Elephone P8000 has tacked a first-class digitizer, the panel that sits between the screen and the glass and registers touches , which easily recognizes multiple touches, even touches too close together, like adjacent figers pressing keys close together on a keyboard.

Review on Camera

The P8000 uses a Samsung  S5K3L2 13MP sensor, instead of the traditional Sony sensors that most of the industry smartphones use.  The lower f-stop lens helps this mobile phone make up for the small pixels on the sensor and performs quite well. The face camera uses a SAMSUNG S5K5E2 5MP sensor.

Review on Battery Life and Quick Charge

The big battery is a main selling point for Elephone P8000, which has a longer battery life comparing with other mobile phones in this price range. With a large 4165 mAh Li-Po battery, it is a breeze for Elephone P8000 to power through a full day’s usage, especially when the big battery is along with the MediaTek MT6753, which improves a lot and needs lower power consumption. And the Quick Charge technique provides users a flexible choice to charge the phone to 10% volume in 10 minutes.

Review on Other Features

Network: Elephone P8000 supports dual SIM standby and also supports 2G, 3G and 4G networks, you can check details of every applicable band above the specifications table.

Fingerprint Sensor: Besides the common sensors like gravity sensor, ambient light sensor, proximity, Elephone P8000 also comes with a TouchID fingerprint sensor which supports 360 degree identification.

Pricing and Final Conclusion

For $170 it’s going to be difficult to find a phone with better battery life, a higher quality build, as smooth of performance or as good of a display as is found on the Elephone P8000, even though there are some drawbacks, and most users consider it a phenomenal phone that’s well worth the money spent on it. But for US uses, you need to think twice before buying, as this mobile phone does not work well in support US 4G network, which is said to be supportable in near future.

By the way, you can rebrand mobile phone like Elephone P8000 from Chinese OEM for your own brand or company. And if you have any ideas or suggestions on this mobile phone review, please leave your comments.
