Elephone A6 Mini Review - Elegant Simplicity & Power On The Cheap
Source: Android Headlines English
Because of how easy this handset is to use, any caveats with the handset were, over the course of a day's use, forgettable. All of the issues that were spotted in deeper testing simply don't present themselves often enough to remain at the forefront. What does remain is just how user-friendly and well-put-together everything is, making the Elephone A6 Mini a device that absolutely needs to be recommended for anybody who wants a straightforward experience on a budget.

Review: Elephone A6 Mini – A small mobile with big abilities! See the video review and get it below 110€ at flash sales!
Source: Igeekphone English
Elephone A6 mini is a really nice mobile, with a very nice look and fast! If you check the video you will see that is really fast, something that I didn’t expect to be honest. Used from my Mi 8, waited to be a bit slower, but no, is good and fast! As I told you at the beginning, I got it from Coolicool but is out of stock there now, so you can try at Banggood, Gearbest or Geekbuying where is in stock and can even found it at their EU warehouse!
