Elephone is one of the manufacturers who don't bring modelsto the market very often. Nevertheless, Elephone regularly surprises us withaffordable smartphones like the Elephone E10. With the Elephone PX Pro has beenannounced that it combines some promising features at an attractive price of$169. Let's see on it in details.
The design of the new smartphone looks like the Elephone PXalong with a pop-up selfie camera. The full view display with a 19:9 aspectratio is present on the front for immersive gaming and movie-watchingexperience. There’s a no big change on the front side of the smartphone, itfully resembles with Elephone PX.
Elephone PX Pro looks refreshed on the rear side, as itfeatures some changes in regard to its predecessor. Apart from the horizontaldual cameras, and an LED flash, we can see changed shape and placement of thefingerprint scanner. The new placement looks far better than the old one. Thegradient color finish gives it a premium look.
The volume rocker and the power button sits on the rightside of the smartphone.
With a 6.53 inch display , it is a fairly large smartphone,although the screen diagonal for 2020 is almost average. The front camera washoused in a pop-up module and moves out of the housing if necessary. Thedisplay itself has a Full HD resolution and works with IPS technology.
There is a modern USB-C connection on the bottom . Themanufacturer has unfortunately don't placed a headphone jack.
A Mediatek Helio P70 processor provides a good the computingpower . The Elephone PX Pro is well positioned for its price range. Theeight-core processor ensures good performance in the system and apps and isdivided into two clusters. 4x ARM Cortex-A73, which work with a maximum of 2.10GHz for demanding tasks and 4x further energy-saving Cortex-A53 clusters, whichclock with a maximum of 1.90 GHz. In addition, the Elephone PX Pro has 4GB ofRAM , which should ensure good multitasking capability. It has the permanentmemory is 128GB and can be expanded with a MicroSD.
The Elephone PX Pro surprises with a number of cameras.While most cheap smartphones today have three or more lenses with no real addedvalue, the Elephone PX Pro has installed a simple dual camera. The main sensoris a 48 megapixel sensor , probably the Samsung GM1. It uses 12 megapixel pixelbinning and is a very good sensor for the price of the Elephone Px Pro. Ofcourse, it also depends on what the manufacturer uses software to extract fromthe pictures. The second camera is only a depth sensor for portraits with ablurred background. The front camera has 16 megapixels.
In terms of connectivity, Elephone almost delivers awish-free package. What we miss on the smartphone is actually only theheadphone jack. On the other hand, there is a triple slot for two SIMs and aMicroSD at the same time, NFC, an infrared transmitter, dual-band wifi andBluetooth (probably 4.2) . All important network frequencies for use in Europeare also supported (B1 / B3 / B5 / B7 / B8 / B20 / B28ab).
But, unfortunately, the battery is not as fun. With 3300mAh,the energy storage is significantly smaller than that of competing products.Active users can look for another cell phone. With an active use of 3-4 hoursper day, the battery should always guarantee a full day's runtime. The ElephonePX Pro can then be charged with 10 watts via cable. As a small bonus, there isalso wireless charging.
The Elephone PX Pro is available on Gearbest for just $ 169.For this price, the cell phone has really good hardware on board. The 48megapixel camera could theoretically take good photos, the Helio P70 is enoughfor good system performance and the memory is also well-sized with 4GB RAM and128GB. The display without a notch is of course a clear advantage. However, itis questionable how well the battery of the Elephone PX Pro performs in practice.
Have a nice shopping with Gearbest!
