Hello, Friends! Welcome back, today I’m going to take a look at Elephone S8 review. At online stores price is around $240. If we talk about the Elephone S8, then its main feature is Bezel-less design. This device has not bezels on three sides. Also, new smartphone comes with a big screen and 2K resolution, 4 gigabytes of RAM and 64 gigabytes of internal storage. On the back panel, you have a 21-megapixel camera with LED flash. So, let’s get started-
Elephone S8 is a very beautiful smartphone. There is an only home button with a fingerprint sensor and front camera at the bottom of front panel. The back panel is made of glass, the curved hot bending glass technology can change the body to different angles. This phone has four curved edges back. Here, you have the main camera with 21-megapixel sensor, Dual LED flash and Elephone Logo. It looks very nice and minimalistic.
At the bottom, you have a USB Type-C port and speaker grille. The volume and power button located on the right-hand side of the phone. On the left side, you have a SIM card tray and keep in your mind, the Elephone S8 does not support microSD card. We can say that design of this smartphone is one of the main key features.
However, screenplays the most important role. The Elephone S8 has a big 6-inches display and resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels or just 2K. There is more than 403 pixels density, which can provide a sharp and colourful picture. As I said earlier, this is three bezel-less smartphone with 92.4% screen to body ratio. It has large screen makes the video viewing and gaming experience to the next level. Also, 3D curved glass makes it more comfortable to hold in one hand. Elephone S8 not only a stylish smartphone but also very powerful.
Here is the great feature of Elephone S8’s main Camera. Unlike another smartphone, you won’t get the dual rear camera. However, there is excellent 21-megapixel camera Sony IMX258 with autofocus and LED flashlight. The front camera is also good. It uses 8-megapixel sensor with autofocus technology. It allows to makes selfies clearer and more beautiful. The camera app is standard and it offers some interesting modes.
However, most of the people have complained about its selfie camera which is the not so nice for this price segment. However, Sony’s rear camera with its laser auto focus and Dual LED flash and covers it up with its excellent performance.
The Selfie shooter performed also pretty nice. The 8-megapixel of front camera capture the wonderful shots, even there is no flashlight but you won’t need it for all the low-light shots which are also great.
Performance & Memory: –
The Elephone S8 powered by Deca-Core Helio X25 Processor. This chipset has two more cores than normal Octa-Core processor. The basic frequency can up to 2.5Ghz, which means it can increase up to 62% of the operating speed and reduce 30% of power consumption. Also, there are 4 gigabytes of RAM and 64 gigabytes of internal memory that is not expanded. It promises good results and performance test and gaming.
When I ran AnTuTu test and Geekbench test on this device, So, the Elephone S8 got scores about 75440 at AnTuTu test. Elephone S8 scores 880 in single core test and 4440 in multi-core test. It is quite good for mid-range and can be compared to Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Ulefone Gemini Pro, Sony Xperia X and Doogee F7. The Elephone S8 shows good synthetics performance for its price segment. With such a big display and excellent processor, Elephone S8 is a great smartphone for games. You can completely immerse yourself in gameplay and forget about the world around you.
Elephone S8 runs on latest Operating System Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. It is completely pure and you cannot find any Chinese apps. However, there are Google services, such as Google Play Store, YouTube, Maps and others. We like that new smartphone doesn’t have pre-installed apps, so it works faster and more smoothly.
The battery seems the weakest part of the phone but it’s not true. Elephone S88 comes with 4000 milliamp-hour battery and it looks very small for such a large smartphone. Also, Elephone S8 has a 2K display and it consumes a lot of power. However, Elephone S8 support wireless and fast charging. It means, that smartphone can charge to 60% in 20 minutes. So, if you are in hurry, then don’t worry about the charging. I can pass the whole day in working life, this is the very good result for such smartphone.
Elephone S8 looks very interesting. It has a bezel-less design, great display with 2K resolution, powerful processor and good cameras. It fully justifies its price $250. You can use it, as a smartphone for a daily driver. You don’t have problems with games, user-interface, browsing and even multitasks.
