Elephone S8 with 6-inch QHD Display First Real Camera Samples


The Elephone S8 appears to be one of the most successful devices ever launched by the Chinese phone maker. The handset is probably among the better looking so called “tri-bezel-less” phones and packs an high res 6-inch QHD display, thus the raise in popularity.

To give the smartphone even more appeal to potential customers, Elephone just released some photos shot with the S8. Let’s check them out!

We have to say some of these photos don’t look bad at all, mostly the one indoor is clean, without too much noise. A really good image considering the Elephone S8 comes with an high resolution 21MP image sensor, which as some of you may know, could result in overall more noise.

The Elephone S8 also comes with a dual tone flash on the back, so that will help taking more natural looking photos in darker environments.

Other than its 21MP shooter, the Elephone S8 also packs some quite interesting hardware, down below you’ll find the full list.

    Nah…I bet that cameras will be the SAME of present and of the past: just enough in a superlight day and very poor in the dark.
    And, remember,Elephone S8 don’t have a slot for sd card!

      64Gb of internal storage is fine, and i see in other reviews it’s night shoots, very very good photos.

        “64GB of internal storage is fine…”; maybe for you, bu not for all. Others Competitors use a standard sd slot card end 128GB of internal storage!

      I am using Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 right now and am both a camera and gaming freak. After 2 years I still managed to spare 3GB of storage space. The OS I flashed doesn’t allow SD card. So 64GB is really fine. My Elephone S8 should arrive in a few days and I hope it excel in both departments.

      Also why do you keep pushing the 5100mAh phone??

    Apparently Elephone have already given a few reviewers to promote their phone. As expected the camera performance is worse or similar to that of some $150 priced phones.
    TBH the camera performance is horrible, the camera software is shitty as expected from them.
    I pity those who already pre-ordered. At least now they’ll understand that with Elephone, all u get is a terrible phone in a well designed body.

      The effect better than fake dual camera. And I think the color is very well.

        Like I said, Elephone already gave a few unit out to trusted reviewers who are ready to be biased.
        Unfortunately not all of them were which was how I got to know the state of the phone.
        Since u already fell for them, all I can let u on for now is when your phone actually arrives and u’ve used it for some weeks, don’t sulk out of the many things u expected them to get well, instead feel happy with that gorgeous screen u’ll be having with u plus the cool complements of “oh what a nice looking phone u’ve got there…”
        This is the only sort of consolation I can garner out for u.
        PS: U might not understand what I’ve written until u’ve gotten on the boat (too). All I can promise u is that it’ll be one hell of a ride.

    Very fine device, i like it and i wait it when it will be in my hands. 4000mAh battery, 21Mp cam, 2K 6″ battery – it’s best size in small body.

        S8 have best what i need – fine cpu, 6″ 2k lcd, 21mp cam, and small 3side-bezel-less body with metal frame. For it’s cost – it’s best device.
