Elephone P7000 vs P8000 vs Mi Note vs Note 3: Storage speed test

Flash memory speed is often something easily overlooked when purchasing a phone. This is despite the fact that there are numerous tools available that allow you to benchmark read/write speeds on flash memory, which is indicative of the quality of the flash memory used.

Elephone use the ignorance in buyers to show how their phones have faster storage speeds. A video was posted by the company earlier today, which pits the P7000 and the P8000 against the Xiaomi Mi Note and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Take a look at the video below:

Gizchina News of the week

In the end, the two Elephones — P7000 and P8000 — take the first two positions speed wise respectively, with the Mi Note and Galaxy Note 3 following. While this is clearly a marketing antic, it is something that won’t hurt users and seems fairly legit.

The P8000 is Elephone’s current flagship, while the P7000 was the company’s storm trooper for a couple months before that. You can read our review of the P7000 here.

    Did anyone else notice the xiaomi was on 8% battery?
    Why wasn’t the test done with all devices fully charged?
    Results taken with a heap of salt…

      Yeah I saw the same too. Hardly a fair test at all. Another “cunning stunt” from Elephone.

      This was my exact thought we have no clue what kind of cards they used and what the conditions of the test were. Just make a good product and you don’t need to do pointless videos trying to fool people.

    Those are pretty good scores. The score for the Xiaomi is unacceptable ,if the device is not a fake,Xiaomi really needs to do better.
    As for the tone of this article, storage perf is very important, not sure what’s your problem here.

      No this is clearly a video filled with crap. We don’t know what type of cards they used. They problably used Class 10 cards on the Elephone phones and some really crappy cards on the other two.

        lol this is the internal storage not microSD. MicroSD doesn’t reach those speeds while the Mi Note doesn’t even have a slot anyway.
        This matters, if it’s accurate or not no idea but storage perf is very relevant, your CPU can’t do jack unless the storage feeds it with data.

        Edit: verified from multiple sources the P7000 results and those are accurate but can’t find results for the Mi Note, just for the Pro , that one does good but it has 64GB and it’s easier to reach better speeds at higher capacity
        Anyway good job Elephone for not using some cheap eMMC.
