Elephone working on camera performance of the P9000


Those of you who have an Elephone P9000 will be happy to know that Elephone are working on an update that should improve quality.

Elephone have already released one updated for the Elephone P9000 which hoped to improve the camera performance of their phone, now a second update is on the way.

Update 20160328 will be pushed out to P9000 phones soon and claims to improve the camera performance of the P9000 significantly.

To give you an idea of the improvements Elephone have released some sample images of before and after shots after the update:

Elephone P9000 CAM Comparison - Outdoor Elephone P9000 CAM Comparison 0 Elephone P9000 CAM Comparison-Low Light

As you can see there is certainly a change and the new images appear to have less noise in them, but I think you can all also agree that a lot more optimisation is needed.

      You are assuming these samples are actually real? Given Elephone’s history I would never take them at their word.

        At least they announced they’re releasing an update. Even if it’s a garbage update, it’s still nice to see.

          This is true, it is progress for them.

    Still not buying that, will have to wait for a new review after the update.

    I’ll wait till people with the phone actually confirm this rather than trusting their own samples.

      How do you think of the Elephone M3 Balco? The pro one with 3gb ram one with p10 and sony sensor. Imo its essentially a p9000 with 1gb less ram but nicer looking and a bit cheaper.

        Personally I would never buy an Elephone, too many long term issues that still haven’t been addressed. There are better phones for the money.

    If they want to redeem themselves then they will bring all their works to other current phones.

    I will advise to take all elephone propagandas with a pinch of salt.

    Elephone somehow already make their name very famous and well knows (in a bad way) for keep postponing their promised products for months or years, lying about hardware and software specs, and bad quality of their products.

    Until someone that has high credibility really hold and test the real elephone released unit then i will believe. Until then i will not believe everything that Elephone said on internet or anywhere.

    I hope Gizhina will not promote those elephone products based on bias perspective because they pay money or gift to the reviewer or something. A good reviewer must be based no non-biased opinion, they tell the truth to public then they can be trusted.
