This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


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).

73.4%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
