The Elephone P7000 is very high at first glance. The frame is made of metal and the brushed back plastic makes a good impression. But if one looks a little closer, here and there, the gaps as not quite correct. In the price range, but in which we move here, which is absolutely unacceptable. contrast is striking the not so compact. The 5.5-inch Elephone P7000 is almost as big as the 6-inch Huawei Ascend Mate 7. The smartphone is also quite heavy. Compact design now costs even more, which has the Asus CEO said at the time at an event and you're right here. As too big we would with 155 x 76.3 x 8.9 mm but not call at 5.5 inches, the Elephone P7000, it is not just the most compact smartphone in the market.

The internal memory of 16 GB can be used simultaneously with two SIM cards namely. And here already comes the first indication for future owners. The micro-SIM card of the first slot can not be inserted up to the stop. may be about 1 mm space between the battery and the SIM card. Otherwise, the SIM is not read. We thought the SIM slot would be broken, but it is easily solved unfavorable.

Another plus point receives the Elephone P7000 for the removable battery. This has a capacity of 3,450 mAh and should enable a high runtime. Combined with the dual SIM function runtimes are of loosely over one day in it. Sorry, no quick charge is present. In conjunction with the supplied 1A power supply, the charging time drags on long time of about 3.5 hours. On the back is not only the 13-MP main camera with LED flash, but also a fingerprint scanner found. This really works very well. Annoying is that you wake up the phone first and then you can use the scanner. Here we would have liked the solution of Huawei.

Over the 5.5-inch full HD display of Elephone P7000 there is a 5 MP front camera. In addition, the earpiece, a proximity sensor and a light sensor. All sensors do a good job. When dialed but the opposite sound a bit tinny. It even does not devolve perfect. For normal phone calls but perfectly adequate. The reception is very good with both modules. Also the WiFi and Bluetooth reception is good.


The GPS signal is detected quickly and the smartphone is so well for navigation.

Something selected unhappy is the position of the Micro-USB ports at the top. When loading the Elephone P7000, the cable hangs over while leveraging. After all, the cable is slightly longer in itself than we are used to.

the microphone and speakers can be found at the bottom. The sound is okay, but the volume too low. In YouTube videos in a normal room without much noise you often choose the maximum volume, whereas in other devices the same volume is achieved at about 60%.

The delivery of the Elephone P7000 also includes a flip cover with a round neck. There, the time is indicating you can answer calls and control the music player. Unfortunately, this LED for notifications is covered. But if you can protect the screen and the back.

The Elephone P7000 comes with a large 5.5 inches IPS display and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The presentation is very good and the brightness absolutely sufficient. Even in direct sunlight you can still see something where the reflections are quite high, as with any smartphone. Included is a &# 8220; Premium tempered Glass 9H +&# 8221 ;, which we have applied directly. Actually, the display would have but even so by Gorilla Glass 3 be well protected. The colors look very natural, in the settings under display and Miravision the picture mode allows more optimized very many options. So every user finds the perfect setting for itself.

Inside the Elephone P7000 a MediaTek MT6752 8-core processor operates at 1.7 GHz per Cortex-A53 core, which are 3 GB RAM. In which hardly fitted surface performance is extremely good. It comes Android 5.0 Lollipop used. All apps and games start quickly and run mostly liquid. Only some of Gameloft games bucking for no apparent reason. There are after prolonged use also weakness. Where the smartphone partially unresponsive for several seconds, can not be send to the stand-by and not be unlocked using the fingerprint scanner. Everything will be sluggish and slow. Then just restart helps. Came with us as every two days ago. Should therefore be corrected, if possible with an update.

As mentioned above, the battery has a capacity of 3,450 mAh in Elephone P7000. The smartphone was used all the time with a T-Mobile and Tchibo SIM with dual SIM. One of the two cards can use the 4G or 3G network at the same time, while the other card then runs at 2G. In normal operation, so we came to a term of about 1 to 1.25 days. More was not possible. There is also an unsightly software error that appears at a remaining battery time of 15%. From there, the smart phone is only a few seconds available. Of course, was a nice surprise, as the smartphone suddenly rapidly degraded after having ventured with 30% evening out and was actually only about 1 hour running time in it. to load in between on the display of the remaining time is working properly again. The display-on time is about 4 hours. But hibernation is also consumed almost always 30% of the battery. That is definitely too much and ensures these mediocre runtimes fairly large batteries. Also for these problems would have her an update.

In addition to the performance and battery life, the camera is one of the most important features of a smartphone. In Elephone P7000 a 13 MP main camera is installed, which is supported by an LED flash. It is a Sony IMX214 sensor with f / 2.0 aperture. The quality of photos and videos can convince only in certain situations. Especially in bright and very dark situations, the sensor has his own difficulties. If you want to use the HDR mode as an aid, a tripod you have with you. Shutter lag is much too large and even lean to succeed almost no sharp photo. In normal mode, users need to type in almost any situation on the darkest place, so that the brightness balance is adjusted. Otherwise there will be only too dark, as you can see in our gallery. In HDR mode colors are often represented too pale.

If you have a situation but even perfectly in focus, the pictures look good. You have to stop to terms with the peculiarities of the camera and manual intervention. Here, too, an update might help.
