Watch: Elephone P8 mini Shows Quick GPS Satellites Fix


Elephone’s latest camera phone — the Elephone P8 mini — is a really affordable device with some rather decent hardware. But how good is that if basic features such as GPS positioning do not perform well?

To prove that the P8 mini is on-par with more expensive devices, the Chinese company has just released a video showing how good the handset’s GPS works; let’s check it out down below.

As we can see in the video, the guys over at Elephone open up a GPS app on the P8 mini, then enable GPS location and wait for the GPS satellites to lock in, using a stopwatch to keep track of time. Surprisingly enough the budget-friendly phone finds the satellites in just over a second and locks position few moments after. Which is quite a good result for a device in this price range.

At the beginning of the post we mentioned the decent hardware this handset packs, for those who aren’t fully aware, the Elephone P8 mini comes with a 4GB RAM and 64GB storage combo, 5-inch Full HD display and a 16MP front-facing camera for selfies with auto-beautify functions. The smartphone also runs the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS with ELE OS skin on top of it.

    This is decently fast indeed! My $250 smartphone takes more time than this :/

    The real question is, can it mantain the fix? Can it be accurate and quick to update the position?

    It’s becoming more interesting with every new video clips. It’s amazing that such a low prize device can manage everything so fast!
