Blessed with a fantastic screen and a very reasonable price point, the Elephone S8 comes highly recommended in the realm of budget blowers, even if it does lack some creature comforts.

82% Elephone S8 hands-on: A solid, no-nonsense phone for business use
Source: English
All in all, I love the look of this phone. It might not be as fast as the 6GB phones I mentioned earlier, or have as many extra features as the Doogee range of phones, but for everyday business use, this phone has everything you need, including a USB-C connection and a 4,000mAh battery with quick-charging capability.

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).

77.25%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
