A few weeks ago we talked about a model from the same manufacturer, Elephone P3000s, a smartphone with good hardware specifications, sold to 133 € in pre-order (161 € currently). Today we know instead a brother, a smartphone with even better components - but always low-end - which, however, surprised me for a certain thing: Android Lollipop 5.
Only 64bit smartphones will be able to upgrade to Android 5.0 OS, Firmware will be available in February, 2015 and Elephone P6000 will be updated to Android 5.0 OS then.
That is, only smartphones with 64bit processors will be updated to Android 5, which will be available in February 2015 and Elephone P6000 will therefore be updated.
In fact Elephone P6000 has a processor 64bit, precisely a mediatek 6732 quad-core @ 1,5 GHz: this means higher performance and energy savings; respectively 20% e 30% more than the mtk6592 octa-core CPU 32bit. Even the GPU is no joke: Elephone P6000 mount one Mali T760 with configurations up to 16 cores and up to 3x higher performance than previous Mali GPUs.
To close the picture we find a battery from 2700 mAh, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, expandable up to 64GB via microSD.
The cameras are of 13MP and 2MP, perhaps a little small the internal one compared to the competition, but still discreet and the display is from 5 ″ IPS, 1280x720p.
All this is enclosed in 143.5 mm x 71.6 mm x 8.5 mm, dimensions really acceptable were it not for the weight that is well 165 gramsHowever, it must be noted by hand whether this is well distributed on the surface or whether it is felt.
As for connectivity, the networks are compatible in all areas - Europe included - and among others, Elephone P6000 also has the network LTE. Of course there is no lack of WiFi, BT and GPS, but we do not find it instead NFC, a connectivity missing on several Oriental smartphones.
All in all - in my opinion - it is a great smartphone with regard to the quality / price ratio, considering also the update to Lollipop. Currently, in pre-order, it can be purchased for 141,84 €, price that - as usual - will rise from day to day until the end.
