Elephone P9000 was a great success for the chinese manufacturer and reliable sources are putting the sale numbers at over 500.000 pieces sold. That’s quite a lot for a smaller fish in the pond and all those units combined can for example form a circle around the city of Paris.
Popularity of the Elephone P9000 is based not just on the hardware, but even that is pretty solid. Midrange Helio P10 processor, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB of storage, 5,5-inch FullHD display, 13 Mpix rear camera, fingeprint sensor and Android 6.0 OS are still usable specs for a midrange model even these days.
But the real benefit comes with the vibrant caring community and plentiful third-party ROMs including Aerom, CM 13 and quite many others. Even the official firmwares are catching up and the test version of Android 7.0 Nougat was released in November. The ROM scene for Elephone P9000 is very much alive and active.
As a sort of a Xmas thank you for the fans Elephone announced a $60 dicount for the model so until December 22nd you can get the Elephone P9000 for just $179.99 on the official website.
