elephone g6

Elephone phone have come a long way in the past 12 months that we have known the brand, and are now looked to as one of the fast movers in the Chinese smartphone market, and 3 new models help to strengthen this.

A few years ago one of the most talked about phone makers from China was Zopo, however these details Zopo seem behind the times and are loosing market share against the likes of Doogee, KingSing, Kingzone and Elephone.

Elephone launched 3 new phones this week which has helped the brand increase their offerings to 18 devices, ranging from phones, a wearable and even a home monitoring system.

Elephone G4

The new ‘G’ range of phones starts with the 499 Yuan Elephone G4 with metal frame and comfortable curved rear panel. No prizes for guessing which phone have used as the inspiration of the G4!

Some might call the Elephone G4 a clone, but if you can look past the OnePlus One styling we do find some very nice features considering the low $80 price tag. First up is the use of a 5-inch 1280 x 720 HD display, quite unusually for the price! Android 4.4 Kitkat is also on board, as is a quad-core MT6582 processor, 1GB RAM, micro SD card reader and 8 mega-pixel main camera.

Full hardware specifications of the Elephone G4 are available here.

Elephone G5

Next in the range is the Elephone G5. Again we are looking at a OPO inspired phone, this time even down to the 5.5-inch display and dual LED flash on the rear. Elephone are even offering their own replaceable rear covers too in pink, purple, baby pink, yellow, green, blue and white.

    1GB of RAM is bad for health…

    However prices are nice, and phones look pretty descent 🙂

        I partially agree, it’s OK for MT6582, but for MT6592 2GB is a must in my humble opinion, however for 150 bucks it might be worth a shot 🙂

    G5 is quite nice if indeed it is less than $100 for us international buyers.

    Problems with these C brands are, no support for newer Android OS, if there is a bug they wont fix it. Pay a bit more and get A brands, like Umi , Zte , Huawei etc.
