Its one of the most anticipated and long-awaited Chinese Android smartphones but now it is finally here. Sit back and watch our first Elephone P7000 Pioneer unboxing and hands on!
The Elephone P7000 Pioneer is a phone that we first heard about back in December, and even now 6 months on people are still excited about the phone. With flash sales of the flagship completed Elephone have started to ship out white versions of the P7000 and we have been fortunate enough to receive our sample before the weekend.
A solid specification line up has been key to keeping the Elephone P7000 in the public eye. Boasting a 5.5-inch FHD display, 3GB RAM, MT6752 processor, LTE, dual SIM, SD card, 3450mAh battery, Android 5.0, Sony IMX214 camera and fingerprint scanner, the P7000 meets all the “must have” specs for a Mediatek flagship phone.
The excitement around the Elephone P7000 has been so strong that we jumped at the Pioneer when it arrived at the office today along with the LeTV S1, which remains in its box still!

Elephone P7000 Pioneer first impressions
So far we have only spent a few hours with the Elephone P7000 Pioneer, this isn’t enough time to give you a full review and give you the full low down, but it is enough time to mention any issues that jump out right from the start.
The good news is the Elephone P7000 has everything it promised to have and is running well so far. Android 5.0 Lollipop on the P7000 runs well so far but only time will tell if there are any hidden bugs lurking in there. The Sony IMX214 13 mega-pixel camera is a surprise! Elephone seem to have optimised it well for good performance out of the box, and we hope this will continue with updates. The fingerprint scanner is also fast and reliable.
It is also great to see the Elephone P700o come with a laminated glass screen protector and a flip cover. Very nice details.
There are a few design touches we don’t really like. The black border around the screen is a bit of a turn off, and the device is a big chunkier than some other phones, but I feel I can life with that as long as the P7000 continues to perform the way it is now.
A full review will be written as soon as possible, but please be patient as a lot of phones have arrived this week.
If you have any questions about the Elephone P7000 that weren’t answered in our hands on video or above please feel free to ask them in the comments below and I will try to answer them.
