Elephone not a very much well known brand in India, but finally the company making their way in India with the difference
so what is really difference ? yes the company is providing cheap as comparing to other, So we will have a review of the Elephone P8000 which we can also call as the successor of P7000.Inside The box
The device packed gets simple packaging nothing more mention outside the box, only you will get a Elephone P8000 image, a logo, web address, little bit detail about specification and EMI. So let us come inside and see what we are getting inside the box packaging, there is a Sensor flip cover, and a premium tempered glass and screen guard to protect your screen, a quick start guide manual, and at last USB cable with charging slot. There is no headphone we found with this device, but its not a big deal lots of chinese brand do not provide that.
Design and build quality
Elephone E8000 feels good and handy in hands as it is a 5.5 incher, so some little hands may gets difficulty. The device we fells little bit heavy in weight, as when holding into your hands you may also feel this issue.
On the back the device packed with a carbon fiber texture cover, a well resistive technique which help your grip in hands, the side edges of the device is fully covered with a matte frame, which you only gets this protection in premium devices, right side of the device gets 3 button 2 for volume up and down and one to wakeup the device, on the bottom of the device there is a USB charging slot, and on the top of the device you will get a 3.5mm headphone jack. There is capacitive button available below the screen and, and When we come to the back panel top middle there is camera along with a LED flash and A unique finger mark scanner, and also speaker is present.
Display Quality and performance
The Elephone P8000 comes with a 5.5-inch IPS LCD screen display,a 1080p Full HD resolution, and also includes a density of 401 ppi. The most saddest thing is there is no corning gorilla glass protections on the screen, as we can also see most of the low budget device have it, but also the Elephone is providing providing a premium tempered glass with this device and a screen guard too, as free with this device so not to worry more about screen. The IPS screen on this device is very bright and well colour productive screen, the colors are very crisp, you will also get good viewing angle of the screen. Blue LED notification below the screen makes the device feels more premium.
Interface and Apps
The Elephone P8000 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with its own custom UI on top. Its own Custom UI is well performing and very smooth, you will be get something changed from usual 5.1 lollipop, there is no home button in the middle, where you can access everything this time you have to just swipe your maine screen and you can choose your needed apps. As from company’s side there will be a Android Marshmallow 6.0 update before December.
You can also implement new theme which will make your device look differ. There are lots of new other pre installed wallpapers which you can also use. Overall the experience with its UI is Good, and this is very simple too. You will not get any extra useful apps like you will be just getting a Personalization apps to themes and all other apps like, Gmail, Youtube.
Hardware & Performance
The device comes with 3GB of RAM which is clocked at 1.3Ghz Mediatek MTK6753(64 bit) Octacore processor, Mali-T720 GPU also included. The device in that budget and with that much high specification very rarely found in India. So let’s talk about performance of P8000, performance of the device is very well and smooth, the device handles multitasks very easily, and for the gaming we have tested, two or three games which is also performing very well like, subway surfer, jetpack joyride which is less then 100MB and performs very smooth, in heavy gaming we have only tested with Asphalt 8, we notice very little frames drops, which can also be noticed in big devices, and yes one thing we notice little bit heating while playing this games,but over all experience is very smooth and responsive.
The Elephone P8000 packed with 16GB or inbuilt storage space which you can expend up to 64GB. For the connectivity the device 4G connectivity options which also supports LTE bands. There is a fingerprint scanner on the back of the device, which is responsive but sometime you may get disappointed it may deny to accept your finger, or have use password system to unlock the device. The response percent of the finger scanner is approx 80% from our side.
It is packed packed with a 4,165 mAh non removable battery. As we are using this device from 4 to 5 days yes in terms of battery backup you will fell that you have a beast in you hands, which is never hungry. the device device last for 24 to 25 hours in one charge, but to charge the device you have to give little more time, it will take approx 4 hours to go to 100%.
Camera and video quality
It is packed with 13 Megapixels camera on the back with A LED flashlight. And in front there is 5MP front-facing camera. The camera quality from our side is not good as expected from this device the device can not take good images from 13MP camera, yes but it can have average shots well, but as company said that new update will enhance the camera more, over all experience from back camera is about average. Lets come to the front facing camera which is of 5MP, the front camera also don’t performs as we expect from 5PM, the device perform well in light condition but when you will comes to dark you will sure find poor quality shots. we have attached the Samples below you can watch. So lets come the the video quality of the phone, yes this time the video quality of the phone is well it can record upto 1080P videos.
There are very much less device which can give you everything at particular budget. The device is well performing in every except camera which does not impressed. If you are looking for device which will never let you feel empty because the battery backup of the device is really impressive and also you can have lots more heavy tasking, at that much budget this is really not a bad deal. The device only costs Rs. 12,990 in India, and available through company’s official site elephonesindia limited stocks are available.
