Elephone has come with some very well designed phones in terms of style, and the price was always good for the specs. They have also released some innovative phones, such as the P5000 with a gargantuan 5430mA battery. 

Where they’ve disappointed is in delivering phones that don’t have several flaws, some of them critical. The P6000 was almost perfect except for non-working OTG and jumpy scrolling.

The P3000 was an exception, though the first P3000 I received had serious overheating issues which would close the phone down within 4 minutes of watching any video.

Regardless of my past experiences with them, I’m eager to see where they might be headed.

It could be just that I’ve had very bad luck with receiving shoddy Elephone’s, but every one I’ve received ended up being a let (with the exception of the 2nd P3000).elephone-g2-review

Elephone has shown interest in creating a community, but it’s little more than a face, with no actual helpful replies or useful information from Elephone. In other words, they’ve got a lot of charm and charisma, but little character.

Elephone is a fairly new brand and they are still likely getting it together, however at this point it’s impossible for me to recommend any Elephone phone without serious reservations, as in my experience they seem to have sub-standard, shoddy internals, and/or terrible QC.

It’s not my goal to cause any sort of ruckus surrounding Elephone. I can only report my experiences with them. Elephone seems to have their heart in the right place, but they have a long way to go before I’d be confident laying down hard-earned money on their phones (the re-designed P3000 being the exception).

The G2 has MediaTek’s new 64-bit MT6732 SoC in it and is priced at at $100. The RAM will be 1GB, the display 5.0″, and according to Elephone will have Android 5.0 Lollipop. It’s also rumored that they will be working on releasing Lewa, MIUI, Cyanogenmod and standard stock Android with the G2.

Again, we see a lot of charisma here from Elephone. Great price for the new MediaTek SoC, along with plans for official custom ROMs. Let’s hope they can get this one right. Regardless of my past experiences with them, I’m eager to see where they might be headed.
