[Deal] Elephone P8000 up for pre-order at $170

Elephone is becoming a known brand in the smartphone industry when it comes to value-for-money smartphones, just like many of Elephone's homegrown competitors. Elephone P8000 is one such VFM offering that provides near high-end features at a marginal price point. Though the phone can be pre-ordered for $210 normally, a special offer today means that you can pre-order a P8000 for just $170. We will get to the part where we discuss how you can get that discount, but for now, let's concentrate on the phone first.

The P8000 has a 5.5 inch screen with Full HD resolution, so though we haven't tried the phone ourselves, the display is bound to be crisp and clear. On the performance front, a 1.5 GHz Mediatek MT6753 octa-core processor takes control of the proceedings on the phone. As the Mediatek processor in this phone is a 64-bit one, the latest software this phone runs on - Android 5.1 Lollipop - will make sure that the 64-bit architecture is utilized well. To complement the processor, the P8000 packs 3 GB of RAM, which is something we see on the latest flagship models of the smartphone heavyweights. This much RAM should be more than enough to support all the multitasking requirements we can need out of a phone.

When it comes to the camera, the phone isn't shying in terms of its megapixels count, at least. A 13 MP primary camera and a 5 MP front camera are present to satiate your imaging needs. To top it off, a fingerprint scanner is present below the rear camera, which can be used to lock your phone or to lock individual apps like Gallery and Whatsapp. All these specifications means this phone is going to need a lot of power to keep things normal. Elephone P8000 packs a 4165 mAh battery that can be fully charged in 90 minutes, because of Quick Charge support. Also, because of its sleek profile and metallic design, the Elephone P8000 looks gorgeous, especially so when we compare it to other smartphones in this price range.

As anyone who can understand what these specifications mean, this phone is a great bargain at $170. Though we can't vouch for whether these specifications work as good as they seem on paper, if this phone falls within your budget, I don't see a reason why you wouldn't want to invest your money on it. The $40 discount can be availed by following these instructions from this post. The Elephone P8000 is listed on Gearbest here.
