Elephone P9000 Review




Elephone’s local presence is now official thanks to their partnership with Lazada as they brought three devices to the Philippine market. Leading the pack is the Elephone P9000 which sports a Helio P10 chipset, 4GB RAM, USB Type-C, and wireless charging. Can the P9000 find its way to Filipino pockets? Here’s our review to help you out.

Design and Construction

Elephone designed the P9000 to be a familiar looking handset. It’s blocky, angular, and resembles the common inspiration for most Chinese handsets, the iPhone. But, they didn’t skimp on build quality with a smooth front glass, sharp aluminum frame, and a textured back.

Up front, we have the 5.5-inch display with the sensors, earpiece, and selfie camera place above it. There’s a single capacitive key beneath marked by a rounded-square symbol and contains a notification light. All of these are protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 which stretches to all corners.

To the right, we have the volume rocker and power/lock button. The buttons are chamfered, just like its metal frame, and has a satisfying tactile to it. On the left-hand side is a lone shortcut button that you can setup which app it launches. It also acts as a mute button when double pressed. There’s also the SIM card combo tray slot, so that’s either an additional micro-SIM or a microSD card.

At the top is the 3.5mm headphone jack while at the bottom are the USB Type-C port, speaker grilles, and a microphone pinhole.

Going over to the back, we have a raised main camera module sandwiched by its dual-tone LED flash and Laser autofocus sensor. There’s a fingerprint scanner just below them and a shiny Elephone logo all the way to the lower end.

When it comes to design, the P9000 is no short of a good looking handset. It’s got a thin bezel on the sides, great build quality, and a fairly sophisticated overall aesthetic. The textured back panel gives the device an additional good impression for those who checks it but it tends to gather grease marks from time to time.

Display and Multimedia

The display of the P9000 is a 5.5-inch IPS LCD packed with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels or a crisp 401ppi. There’s a thin bezel separating the display to its left and right side thus, there’s more screen real estate. In terms of quality, the panel doesn’t disappoint. It’s well saturated, has wide viewing angles, and gets decently bright even when outdoors.

As for the speakers, it’s a dismay. The output is very tinny and volume levels don’t help either. If you’re into using your smartphone as a speaker for listening to tunes while on the go or just in the room, you have to look elsewhere.
