We have a new phone now out by Elephone that is called Elephone S8. I checked out their Elephone S7 which was a beautiful and cheaper Samsung Galaxy S7 copycat. So I was really excited when I saw this new phone. This phone has an edge-to-edge display that fully goes up to the top.
It also comes with a Hello X25 Deca core 2.5GHz CPU, 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM by Samsung, 21MP rear camera and 8MP front camera, 6.0″ 2K display full front screen (except the bottom of the phone!) and Android 7.1.1 Stock Android. Not the latest version of Android which is now Android 8.0 Oreo but not that bad.
The front display has 92.4% screen-to-body ratio. And it has 3D curved glass which makes it more comfortable to hold in hand! The battery capacity is 4000mAh. Which is good when the new Note 8 will only feature 3200mAh.
The phone also shines in different angles. One bad thing is it’s using a glass back. Something that the new iPhone 8 and new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 also is using. This is a bad back phone material because it may break. And then it’s hard to replace. The Elephone S8 is available right now in 2 colours blue and black.
I really like the camera design on the back how it’s not rounded. It has more of a business look. Sort of like the original Galaxy Note or the new Galaxy Note 8. I really wish this phone came with a stylus. It’s sad to have such a big screen but no stylus to use. Here is a quick photo of my Elephone S7!
This Elephone S8 kind of is interesting because the screen goes fully up to the top! Not even the Samsung Galaxy S8’s screen is doing that. And I am sad with my Samsung Galaxy S8 the software performs poorly both in browser and inside gallery. It does seems like Samsung needs to work harder at improving their Samsung Experience software.
