82% Elephone P8000 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
The price-performance elephant. A smartphone with Full HD, LTE, fingerprint scanner and metal casing for not quite 200 Euros (~$226)? That sounds too good to be true! But the Elephone P8000 features just that, and we will uncover whether there is a catch somewhere.
The pachyderm punch: El Reg takes just-over-a-ton Elephone P8000 to tusk
Source: Reg Hardware English
For the asking price the P8000 is an impressive amount of gadget. The MediaTek SoC provides ample power, the 5.5-inch IPS screen is easy on the eye if potentially fragile, the cameras are both perfectly serviceable, both SIM slots support 4G service, and there’s a microSD card slot to back up the built-in 16GB of storage.

So there you have it for this in-depth look at the Elephone P8000! As impressive as this device looks on paper, there are a lot of issues that show up when it comes to real world performance. While the battery life is amazing, and the display, other than some quality control issues, is excellent, there are some glaring flaws that are hard to overlook. It’s a definite no go if you are in the US unless they can fix its network connectivity issues, but may still be a good option in other markets however, especially if you’re looking for an affordable device with excellent battery life.

In the past there have always been a few niggles that have held me back from wholeheartedly recommending Elephone's products. However, the P9000 manages to get pretty much everything right, with the possible exception of its inconsistent fingerprint scanner and unfinished camera software.

90% One of the best sub-£200 smartphones we’ve ever reviewed
Source: PC Perspective English
We’re very impressed with the Elephone P9000, which is a great all-round Android phone at an unbelievable sub-£200 price. It’s fast, battery life is good, it’s feature-packed and it even runs Marshmallow. Wireless- and quick-charging-, NFC-, USB-C-, dual-SIM- and microSD support are the icing on the cake. Recommended.

Elephone P8 Mini review

A similar performer to the UK’s best budget phone, the Moto G5, but with enhanced cameras and more storage, the Elephone P8 Mini is a great buy if you’re happy to import it from China.
