Reviews for the Elephone P9000

80% Elephone P9000 review
Source: Trusted Reviews English version
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 version
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.

Helio P10 MT6755: ARM-based octa core SoC (8x Cortex-A53) with 64 Bit support and a clock rate of up to 2 GHz per core.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.

The smartphone manufacturer ELEPHONE Communication Technology Co. Ltd. was founded in China in 2006. The sales numbers are limited and so are the number of reviews. The ratings are average (as of 2016).

85.5%: This is an above-average rating. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that about one fifth of all tested models receive a better rating.
