Design and Display

Black, Red and Blue are the variants of this smartphone which you can select from. The plastic covering of the device makes it more budget than premium, and that’s normal. Two cameras housed at the top are the highlights of the top bezel. The bottom bezel contains no occupant whatsoever.

In the display section, a 5.45-inch IPS touchscreen teams up with 640 x 1280 pixels as the core display entities. Also, there’s the 18:9 aspect ratio that inserts Full View Display mode on the smartphone.

Battery and Camera

That feeling that you don’t really need a power bank when using a smartphone is golden! Elephone A3 is more or less a power bank with the 5,000mAh battery capacity it has in stock. It can take you for a full day and more before you run down to the charging outlet.

Quad cameras on the Elephone A3 makes it a super budget king in the entry-level section. At the front, 16MP and 2MP cameras are available for crisp selfies, including bokeh images. Similar qualities are found at the back as well. In other words, photography is well served.
