Design and Display

The design on the smartphone is simple and modern thought not quite with the removable back but the 2:1 aspect ratio offers a sense of being in vogue. The smartphone has a plastic back with a reducing circular camera design from left to right including the flash all at the left side. The back cover can be removed to reveal the SD card space at the left and dual sim space at the right. The speaker grille is at the bottom of the phone flanking the MicroUSB port that is at the middle.

The display is quite large and has a slightly reduced iPhone X kind of notch which houses the dual front camera. For a 6.26-inch screen, the display is nice with good viewing angles and punchy colours owing to the FHD+ resolution. It is a good thing that the bezels around the display are reduced and the display edges are round which makes it look more premium.

Battery and Camera

As far as battery is concerned, the Elephone SX have got things under wraps be it an engaging day with your smartphone or not. That is what you say when you have 4, 000mAh battery capacity on your smartphone. Anyway, the smartphone sadly only comes with a MicroUSB port but offers fast charge to bolster its performance.

Moving on to the cameras on the smartphone which is up to four shared equally between both ends not only in terms of number but also in pixel count. The rear combines a 16MP camera with a 2MP secondary sensor and LED flash. A similar thing is seen in front of the smartphone also with a 16MP camera and a 2MP depth sensor.
