Elephone S8 – Why does it cost more than other Tri-Bezel-Less phones?

Elephone S8

The Elephone S8 is one of the latest tri-bezel-less devices to hit the market, but some of you may have noticed it costs slightly more than what the competition offers, albeit still much less than Xiaomi’s MIX 2.

Elephone say that people are still willing to spend a bit more to get their handset and they explained why; let’s hear them out.

Elephone S8

1. The Elephone S8 is the first tri-bezel-less smartphone to feature a large 6.0-inch display and 2K resolution, with a 92.4% screen-to-body ratio; it also sports a deca-core processor.

2. Elephone decided to produce a more premium device and thus used higher quality materials instead of cheaping out. This probably makes the device more stable and more durable on the long run, but does add production costs and final price.

3. The Elephone S8 is equipped with 3D curved Lumia material on the back with a thin sheet of glass over it. With these materials the S8 supposedly looks more beautiful and solid as well, compared to similar devices.

The Elephone S8 is currently available over at Gearbest with a $40 off discount. If you’re interested head over there, only two days left before the offer expires.
