The Elephone S7 is a device that has the hallmarks of a certain other S7, but at a much more friendly price. Available in multiple RAM/ROM configurations, the S7 from Elephone is available from just £118 (pre-order) on Gearbest at the moment.
Another great deal from Gearbest, and another lovely looking phone from Elephone. Those that don’t know of Elephone, they are another Shenzhen-based smartphone manufacturer providing solid devices for peanuts in comparison to the big players in the market. As the old adage goes, you get what you pay for, but in the smartphone market, with brands such as Honor, and OnePlus, we’ve learnt that this isn’t always the case and the huge margins pushed by larger companies with huge marketing bills doesn’t necessarily follow through to quality.
The Elephone S7 has a 5.5″ 1080p screen, Helio X20 cpu, as well as Android 6.0 and a 13MP rear facing camera. See below for more specifications.
Display: 5.5 inch 1920 x 1080 pixels screen

RAM/ROM: Choice of 2GB RAM/16GB ROM, 3GB RAM/32GB ROM or 4GB RAM/64GB ROM

The Elephone S7 also features a wrapped screen to give a bezel-less design to the panel.
The Deca-Core Helio X20 is powerful enough to deal with whatever is thrown at it, and the combination of RAM/ROM choices means you can customise your purchase to your requirements.
The Elephone S7 is currently on pre-order for as little as £118 from Gearbest with free UK shipping. If you’re after a phone with a well known design aesthetic, but for approximately £500 less, then this might be one to look at!
