Design and Display

The Elephone P8 might not be regarded as a smartphone with a spectacular design but there is no denying the quality of its build. It also features reduced bezels and a nice metallic unibody. However, the smartphone has a slightly large chunk of space above the screen with the fingerprint sensor located below the screen.

Besides having a nice design, the Elephone P8 has a good enough display for a mid-range smartphone. It sports a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels. Despite being bezel-less, there’s a rather thick black line surrounding the screen.

Battery and Camera

As a smartphone, having a 3, 600 mAh battery capacity is definitely a bit above the mediocre line. The non removable Li-Po battery is capable of powering the smartphone all day as long as usage is not rigorous.
