Elephone P5000: the Smartphone that Has Battery-Monster!

If you are looking for a true drum prodigy in the world of Android smart phones, your search is over.  The Elephone P5000 is a true monster of autonomy. Our complete review of the device shows what else it is capable of.
First, the question that many should ask: why test the P5000 of a Chinese brand almost unknown in Brazil? For starters, it has something that the Galaxy S6, the LG G4 or the Xperia Z3 do not have: a giant battery of 5,350 mAh. To get an idea, the flagship of Samsung, LG and Sony have batteries with the following capabilities: 2.600 mAh(Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge), 3,000 mAh(LG G4) and 3,100 mAh(Xperia Z3).

Elephone P5000-Release date and price

The availability of the Elephone P5000 is problematic because the device is sold only in a few online stores, among them to gearbest.com, who kindly sent us the device for testing. The handset is sold in two colors, black and white, and the price of the Elephone P5000 is $ 521.85(without the fees).

Elephone P5000-Design & Quality of Construction

The Elephone P5000 is not a first-of-its-kind design, but what to expect in this smartphone issue at this price? Of course, the Moto G 2014 is much more beautiful, not to mention the Xiaomi Mi 4i, which stands out for the visual. As for the finish, however, the P5000 is surprisingly good, although the plastic back cover is somewhat difficult to remove.
A big disadvantage of the Elephone P5000 is its weight. At 206 grams, this China battery monster can also be considered a heavyweight. Luckily, thanks to its rounded shape on the sides, the device is actually quite ergonomic.
The volume buttons and power button are on the silver side of plastic, and have a good pressure point. The aforementioned removable back cover is opaque plastic, and the rear camera is slightly protruding.

Elephone P5000-Screen

On paper the Elephone P5000 did not save on this issue, presenting a 5-inch Full HD screen, that is, with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, reaching a density of 440 dpi. At first glance everything is very clear on the display. Only in color rendering and brightness does the P5000 lose a few points, in my opinion.
In addition, the big downside of the screen of the Elephone P5000 is the absence of a 10-point touchscreen(the default on current smartphones) instead featuring a 5-point panel. Although it does not make much difference in everyday use, the accuracy and responsiveness of the screen when playing some games are not good.

Elephone P5000-Software

The Elephone P5000 runs on the Android 4.4.2 KitKat pure, and the best, already comes with root and SuperSu permissions installed. The device receives OTA updates through its own application. The remainder manufacturer gave up its own interface and other services and apps that no one would ever use. You have not yet been informed if the Elephone P5000 will be upgraded to Android Lollipop or will directly receive Android M.
Of the 16 GB of internal storage, there are 13 GB free for apps and user data. As the P5000 still has a MicroSD card slot, its memory can reach 64 GB.
As the physical button on the panel of the Elephone P5000 still has fingerprint sensor, you can unlock the device with digital. Unfortunately, the integrated sensor here still belongs to the first generation, as also in the case of the Samsung Galaxy S5.In this way, you need to move your finger evenly and slowly over the scanner to unlock the device. In practice this means that precision is not the best, and we end up disabling the function after repeated unsuccessful attempts.

Elephone P5000-Performance

The Elephone P5000 comes packed with MediaTek’s eight-core MT6592 processor with 1.7 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. There are already more modern and more energy-efficient chipsets, such as MT6752 or MT6795 with 64-bit technology. In the AnTuTu Benchmark, the P5000 marks almost 30,000 points.
In practice, the hardware performance of the Elephone P5000 is perfectly sufficient for browsing the internet, using multimedia and some games. Do not be surprised if you experience some delays and gags in heavier games. For everyday use(internet, whatsapp, social networks, etc.), the device is satisfactory.

Elephone P5000-Audio

In terms of audio, the Elephone P5000 does not leave anything to be desired. The phone conversations are clear on both sides, and we do not notice cuts or glitches(this is all though the device does not support 4G). The reason for this absence is the somewhat older MediaTek processor.
The P5000 Speakerphone is located on the bottom of the device. This is a mono speaker, with the corresponding quality, that is, good at best to use the device in the speakerphone, and not to listen to music without headphones.

Elephone P5000-Camera

As in the case of the screen, the settings of both the P5000 and Elephone P5000 cameras appear very good. The main sensor has 16 megapixels and the front camera has 8 MP for self-fans. The photos of the 16 MP camera can be considered medium. Sharpness and color rendering are good. Unfortunately, slow autofocus and shooting time are a bit detrimental to camera experience.

The same thing happened when I took selfies with the 8-megapixel front camera of the Elephone. For social networks, these images are entirely satisfactory, but paper reproduction is not recommended. Anyone looking for a cheap smartphone with good quality of photos should wait for the arrival of the Xiaomi Mi 4i, for example.

Elephone P5000-Battery

The battery is definitely the strong point of the Elephone P5000. It’s fixed, but at 5,350 mAh, it’s double the capacity of the Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge batteries. In our test it lasted 2 days off. You can also play for hours on end. After 20 minutes of intense play, the battery of my test device was 100 to 91%.
Due to its large capacity, the Elephone P5000 also has an extra function that until today had not seen in other smartphones. The device can be used as power bank or charged portable to other devices. In times of smartphones with scarce battery and poorly managed management, this capability can be a decisive advantage.

Final Verdict

The Elephone P5000 is no longer at the technical height of the line tops, being today a medium device. But this battery is a haunting! With it we can forget that there are taken for a long time. While we have to recharge most devices after one day of use, the Elephone P5000 begins to show signs of exhaustion at the beginning of the third. And if necessary, you can also recharge other devices without your running out of power. This, for me, makes the Elephone P5000 the first portable charger running on Android.
