Elephone P8000 Review: UNBOXING



Elephone P8000 Review: HARDWARE and PERFORMACE

The Elephone P8000 comes with an octa-core MTK6753 CPU, which is clocked at 1.3GHz, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage.
All the specs lead to a great day to day performance. However, some more intensive tasks like gaming are good but not great. You may still enjoy playing 3D games but keep in mind that you will face occasional stutter and some skipped frames. A good thing is that the phone does not heat up too much.

Elephone P8000 Review: MULTIMEDIA

Watching HD movies on a 5.5” screen is great and the playback is smooth. The phone comes with a stock Android music player app and the sound that comes out of the loudspeaker is pretty good. It is nothing exceptional as the sound lacks depth and the volume output could be louder but we are talking about a budget device here.
The sound via earphones is decent but the volume output is pretty low.

Elephone P8000 Review: CAMERA

As the majority of the budget Chinese phones, the Elephone P8000 comes with a stock Mediatek camera app.

Elephone P8000 Review: IMAGE QUALITY

The 13MP camera on the back is capable of producing some decent looking daylight images but camera is inconsistent as some of the shots may look out of focus or at least with soft corners. Also, the dynamic range adjustment is usually off.
Images taken indoors require a steady hand. If you manage to hold your hand steady you may produce some decent looking photos, but sometimes images come out blurry.
In low-light conditions camera struggles to capture details and there is plenty of noise.
Overall, you can capture some decent looking daylight images but photos taken indoors are a hit or miss, and the low-light shots do not impress.

Elephone P8000 Review: VIDEO QUALITY

The video quality is mediocre as on the majority of budget devices. The footage looks dull and there is a visible lack of details. Also, there is no continuous auto-focus. See the video review for a video sample.

Elephone P8000 Review: CONNECTIVITY

I don’t have any complaints about connectivity options as the call quality along with the signal reception are good, Bluetooth and wifi are also working fine. GPS is fast to get a position lock but it could be a tad more accurate and it is not on par with the phones, powered by Snapdragon chips.

Elephone P8000 Review: BATTERY LIFE

The 4165mAh battery sounds amazing on paper and I can say it delivers in real life. I was able to get over 5 hours of screen-on time even if I took a lot of pictures and played some games. If you are a light user, you may get 6 or even 7 hours of screen on time, which is not bad for a budget phone.

Elephone P8000 Review: CONCLUSIONS

The Elephone P8000 is a budget phone that costs just $170 and it has a great build quality, decent screen, good specs and fast day to day performance.
Also, you may get some good looking daylight images with its camera but not all the time. Other key features include an okay working fingerprint scanner, a good battery, dual SIM card slots with the 4G LTE support.


A few downsides would be that the phone is huge and heavy, the black borders around the screen don’t look cool at all and the UI lacks some extra features like gesture controls.
Other than that, the Elephone P8000 is a decent offering for the money.
