Is There Anything The Elephone S7 Can’t Do?

Elephone has once again graced our inbox with another video of the Elephone S7!

Every day this month (it seems) Elephone has sent us something about their Elephone S7 phone. So far this week we learned about the benchmarks of the Helio X20 phone, we’ve heard the phone has fast charging, and just yesterday, that the first 2 batches of S7’s are being shipped out to customers.

Gizchina News of the week

So what about today? Well, Elephone has sent over a video of the phone showing that it’s tougher that it might look. Being a rather glossy phone with a bezel-less design, some people have been worried that the new Elephone might be a little delicate, but does the above video put you at ease?

The video shows the phone fall from roughly 2 meters and suffer no ill effects. It is worth noting that the phone in the video has a case on it too which might have also helped to protect the handset.

If you’re not one of the current 140,000 pre-order customers of the phone, (or one of the 400,000 people who have shown interest in buying the device) you still have the chance to pre-order now in time for the next batch of launches.

    Kind of unrelated, but still: Why are people obsessed with thin phones when 99% of the time they are planning to use some sort of cover or case?

    Yeah, have a large battery like my Redmi Note 4 is something it can’t do apparently.

    Yes, it’s something that it can’t do… To stop the commercials every day!

    I’m wondering if this “Andi” is the real one or another bot using Andi old reputation to gst some attention in this ads

    Just saw an article saying they had just started shipping the orders, so tests like this are quite good, people will be able to see the quality of their phone before receiving it

    how can a glass break if it doesn’t touch the surface? this video proves the back cover can survive falls, not the display, which doesn’t touch the floor.

      if you hit the corner of the phone, for instance, (even with the back cover on), more fragile phones might shatter the screens because of the hit

    The S7 can’t write adds on gizchina, Andi has to do it.

    Yes there is something it can’t do.
    The phone can’t survive a drop without a TPU case

    This Elephone charade is getting out of hand. On the other side; not sure what I would do to keep the site going and make some money.

    I just wish to see some more of the older style reviews. GizChina is overloaded with re-written sales pitches. I know how they look like, I use to get them as well. It degrades the value of the site, it’s really too bad. But again, I have no insight in the financial gain/position of the GizChina people.

      I think I got the charade. This site isn’t owned by Andi anymore.

        Why do you think so? I don’t see much of his earlier writing anymore indeed.

          Well, this site always had ads, as there is not other way of financing the whole thing other than that, but it was not a party like is nowadays, Andi, Yash and others always wrote articles with a kind of common sense, sometimes sarcasm, over those small brands and some of their crazy stuff, as well as criticism over constant mistakes. Now everything is changed, we have about 3 real articles per day, and a sea of useless stuff like this here. Don’t get me wrong, its Gizchina, it always reported everything about Chinese brands from Xiaomi to the smallest one, but now sometimes its like a employer of one of those brands is writing the article, the case of that “Marcus” writer and his biased reviews. First the Karel guy, got a ton of critics, then he disappeared and this Marcus came, and now I don’t see much life on this Andi’s articles, he can be just a writer now, or perhaps its just his account with the new owner running things out.

    Annoying news again! ELEPHONE again! “Andi” please don’t post such useless article with the “Andi” account.

    November 24, 2016

    that use of case is such a bad idea.

  17. Rocky Raja

    Umm… honestly it was disappointing when I saw the bumper case.

  18. Jean Carlo Palmisano Rademaker

    What I see is a single fairly save drop with a bumper on the damn device! How the hell does that prove how tough the device is?

    Damn I’ve not missed this site at all..

    I know what it definitely CAN’T do: Last over a year in a good working order.
    Best of luck to whoever decide to buy that thing.
