The Elephone S7 gets upgraded to a Mediatek Helio X25!


Elephone S7

The Elephone S7 is definitely one of the more successful devices launched by the Chinese company. To cash in some more on the smartphone’s reputation, they have just decided to launch a new upgraded version of the S7 packing the more recent Mediatek Helio X25. Let’s see why they did it!

Well, we don’t need a genius to understand the real motivation behind the upgrade. Elephone already had a version of the S7 running a Mediatek Helio X20, but they come to the conclusion that it isn’t enough anymore. Apps and games get heavier and you need more power to run everything smoothly, thus the change of CPU.

The new Elephone S7 equipped with an Helio X25 will be running at higher speeds: 2.5Ghz, as well as the GPU which will now be able to boost up to 850Mhz. Now, this change won’t bring a huge increase in performance, but if you don’t own the older S7 with the Helio X20, then you should probably get the Helio X25 version straight away, which among other things, should be slightly more power efficient as well.

      Feels like these site articles are about advertising and not journalism. I bought a Elephone P8 mini due to these “articles”, i should have kept my money. I wonder if that x25 will be able to finally play 4K videos recorded by my 3 year old phones already.

    S7 had been nice so far. Very good experience with the device, only the front camera performance is not upto the mark as per the price.
