80% Elephone U Pro Review
Source: PC Advisor English
A mid-range phone with a premium design, albeit one that closely resembles the Galaxy S9. The U Pro from Elephone is a decent mid-ranger, but it's let down by photography and you'll find cheaper options running the same core hardware.

79% Elephone U Pro review: An affordable but flawed Galaxy S9-alike
Source: Zdnet.com English
Is the Elephone U Pro worth a punt? I would say a qualified 'yes'. The fantastic 6-inch screen, large battery, voluminous and expandable storage, and good looks certainly make this handset a desirable bit of kit. On the other hand there are one or two rough edges and the main camera performance, in particular, is rather poor. And don't forget you can pick up a Moto G6 Plus here in the UK for around £260 which, if not quite as powerful or as funky, could be a safer bet.

Elephone U Pro review: Absolutely gorgeous, but flawed
Source: Android Guys English
Before I go ahead and state my conclusion I should point out an important aspect. Like many Chinese phones, the Elephone U Pro isn’t meant for the US market. As such, it does not support LTE bands, so it won’t work on the country’s major networks. If you’re in Europe like me, the phone works just fine.

Despite being a dead-ringer for the Galaxy S8, the Elephone U Pro is much more than a simple clone – it’s one of the better devices the company has produced.

80% Elephone U2 Review
Source: PC Advisor English
A very strong contender at the sub-£250 price point, Elephone's U2 is a good-looking phone with a cool pop-up selfie camera and conveniently located fingerprint sensor. Under close scrutiny some corners have been cut, including the lack of support for NFC and personal audio, relatively slow charging and a disappointing camera app. Performance and design go a long way to making up for this, however.
