80% Elephone U Pro Review
Source: Tech 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.

Elephone U2 Full Review: A new addition to Pakistan’s smartphone market
Source: Phone World English
My detailed review clearly implies that U2 is an expensive smartphone. The features and specifications provided doesn’t fit in with the other popular mid-range smartphone. People would tend to buy other famous brands like oppo, huawei etc. or even a used Galaxy S9 in this price tag. Therefore, my final suggestion is that the company should lower the prices to gain momentum in the market.

80% Elephone U2 Review
Source: Tech 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.

Comment

Elephone:

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).


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

ARM Mali-G71 MP2: Integrated GPU that can be found e.g. in the Mediatek Helio P23 SoC with 700 or 770 MHz clock speed. Supports OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, DirectX 11 FL11_1 and RenderScript.

ARM Mali-G72 MP3: Integrated graphics card from ARM with 3 cores based on the 2nd generation of the Bifrost architecture.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Qualcomm Adreno 510: Integrated graphics card based on the Adreno 500 architecture, like the Adreno 520 in the Snapdragon 820. Performance should be on average similar to the old Adreno 330 in the Snapdragon 801. Supports DirectX12, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Mediatek Helio 20:

Helio P23 MT6763T: ARM-based octa core SoC (4x Cortex-A53 1.65 GHz for power efficiency and 4x Cortex-A53 at 2.3-2.5 GHz) for smartphones and tablets.

Qualcomm Snapdragon:

652 MSM8976: Upper middle class ARM based SoC with 8 CPU cores (64 Bit Cortex A72 and A53 mixture) and a Adreno 510 GPU.

Mediatek Mediatek:

Helio P70: ARM based octa-core SoC with 4x big ARM Cortex-A73 cores and 4x small and power efficient ARM Cortex-A53 cores. All clocked up to 2.1 GHz. Integrates a Cat-7 (DL) / Cat-13 (UL) LTE Modem (4G), ARM Mali-G72 MP3 GPU and a dedicated AI processing unit.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
