Today we are talking about a new terminal produced in the Far East; surely you will know Elephone, one of the many names made in China that launch smart phones on the market, but accessible to everyone in terms of price.
If it is true that there are many Chinese smartphone manufacturers, we cannot say the same of those that stand out for the quality and efficiency of the product; in my opinion we can for example exclude clones a priori, while Chinese devices that make the difference can be Xiaomi, Oppo, OnePlus, Meizu among the best - in the medium-high, high range - but also brands like Jiayu, Zopo, THL and Elephone (but also others) - for the low, medium-low end - they are certainly talked about.
I don't say this based on rankings or who knows what else, but it is in a sense my point of view regarding Android smartphones: a smartphone that has good support for ROM, kernel, recovery, etc - which all in all is proportional to sales - for me it will always be a good device, excellent if it is also cheap. 😀
Closed this little parantesi, let's see a bit the features of this smartphone that is currently on presale at 150 € until 15 December, but available at 133 € with our coupon (end of article).

If the hardware is not enough to convince us, this brief hands-on shows us the performance of the smartphone. We can indeed note - even if in English - the score on Antutu of well- 29000 points. Another strong point of the phone is the fingerprint reader that lately we are seeing more and more on more devices. Positioned just below the rear camera, it does not steal space in the front face and is also convenient to activate, but at the same time it could turn up one's nose as regards the design: if the fingerprint reader in most cases is well hidden, on Elephone P3000s stands out not a little, but you can't want everything from a low cost smartphone.
Other interesting aspects are certainly the air gestures and the gestures on the screen off to quickly start the apps, which seem to be now a standard feature on many Chinese devices.
As already mentioned, the device is currently in pre-order a 150 € on GearBest but with our coupon you can book it at 133 €, without shipping costs:
