Elephone S8 First Impression
Shiny Bezel-Less flagship of Elephone
Elephone S8 is the latest Elephone flagship which features a nearly bezel-less frame and shiny finish. Compared to the other bezel-less phones of Elephone like S3 & S7, S8 is further innovative. Now, let’s have a look at this attractive new arrival.
Design & Display
The first of glance of the Elephone S8 is really attractive. It’s takes high-end glass material and designed with a shiny finish in black or blue color options. The glass back cover looks more magnificent under the light. In addition to artistic, Elephone S8 is not easy to scratch and the back cover is not easily damaged. The S8 comes with a 6.0 inches Screen type: Corning Gorilla Glass display with a FHD resolution of 1440 * 2560. It features almost bezel-less edges on three of the four sides, supports a screen-to-body ratio up to 92.4%, while Xiaomi Mix’s is 91.3%. In addition, the whole body of S8 is smaller than Mi Mix which is easier to hold in one hand.
Configuration & Performance
The Elephone S8 is pre-installed with Android v7.1.1 Nougat. It sports a deca-core MediaTek Helio X25 ticking at 2.5 GHz and 4 GB of RAM. As for memory, it has 64 GB of storage, but doesn’t support external memory. With an ARM Mali-T880 MP4 GPU clocked up to 875MHz, it brings uncompromised performance in games with high-resolution graphics. Powered by a massive 4,000 mAh battery, and supported by quick charging technology, it can deliver good battery life.
As for cameras, the Elephone S8 comes with an 8 MP sensor for selfies, and a 21 MP Sony-made sensor for the main camera on the back. It is a bit disappointed as the rumors said that the camera would come with dual rear camera.
