Although these days most of the hype is around flagship smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S6 or the LG G4, it’s no secret that most people would have a pretty hard time affording a device like that. Therefore, I figured that a lot of you might be interested in checking out something more budget-friendly, yet still very solid for a change. The Elephone P6000 is one such handset and there’s currently even a promotion that can get you the phone for a little over 100 bucks. Elephone are not very well-known in the western world, but the manufacturer has a pretty good presence across Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and several other markets. In any case, we’re here to talk about the phone not the company, so let’s get to it.
The Elephone P6000 is currently available at 24% off from Gearbest and you can save a few extra dollars by using the coupon code GBEHP6000 while placing the order. The code will make the already affordable phone even cheaper by bringing the price down from $133 to $119. It’s worth mentioning that the regular price outside this promotion is $176, so we’re looking at a pretty nice discount here. Now, don’t let the low price tag deceive you because the Elephone P6000 is definitely not a low-end phone, although it’s clearly not high-end either. The device is something that tech people usually refer to as a mid-range smartphone and you’ll get to see why in just a second.
The screen size on this baby comes in at 5-inches with 720 x 1280 pixel resolution, which should be just perfect for those who are already tired of all humongous smartphones coming out nowadays. Spec-wise, the Elephone P6000 features a 64-bit MTK6732 chipset with four cores running at 1.5 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. Elsewhere under the hood, you can expect to find 16 GB of internal storage memory complete with microSD card good for an additional 64 GB of user-expanded storage. As for the camera combo, it’s comprised of a rather standard 13 MP primary shooter on the back alongside a 2 MP selfie snapper on the front. The Elephone P6000 is powered by a 2,700 mAh battery pack and is available in black and white color options.
What might seem like a disappointment at first is that the Elephone P6000 still runs on the Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system. However, the smartphone is scheduled to receive Android 5.0 Lollipop in the near future, so that’s not necessarily s a huge downside. What’s also worth pointing out is that Gearbest is offering unlocked versions, so for $133 ($119 with the coupon code) you can get a pretty good Android smartphone that’s not tied to any carriers and can be used worldwide.
