|Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by OVA200(m): 6:31pm On Apr 20, 2018|

It will get the attention it deserves when they bring the spare parts down here to Nigeria. How much is it?
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by SOFTENGR: 10:40pm On Apr 20, 2018|
OVA200:Where can we buy it?
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by OVA200(m): 10:41pm On Apr 20, 2018|
BRIGHTRIVERS:It is a civilized world already, you order for the phone then what stop you from ordering for the spare part if needs arises. Me and my friend bought oukitel u20 plus this time last year mine got stolen but his fell and have a bad screen he gentle order for the screen and give it to an engineer to fix it and the phone is working 100% as I am typing this.
If you order a phone online you can also order for anything about the phone (even pouch, screen protector are allowed too) its even cheaper self because that my friend order it for not up to 1K then, what about difficult to find spare part of common phone in Nigeria too like Gionee, Xiaomi, oneplus, google pixel, asus, hauwei etc should people stop buying them because of scarce spare part? Its now easy bro you need any phone spare part order it simple.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by OVA200(m): 10:43pm On Apr 20, 2018|
SOFTENGR:Its available on jumia or through Aliexpress, gearbest or banggood.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by fibonacci2526: 10:50pm On Apr 20, 2018|
Because it is overpriced.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by OVA200(m): 10:59pm On Apr 20, 2018|
fibonacci2526:Bros what? Overpriced? Don't just use the spec sheet to judge but also see their real life performance, this phone beat Samsung galaxy S8 in speed test and multitasking, it color reproduction is a little better when S8 is switch to 2K also, the battery life is also slightly better and it boost latest OS 8.1, it cost $450 while S8 cost $650.
Bros this phone isn't overprice it even compete with oneplus 5T that I considered the most fastest phone presently, bro you make dem sell am for the same price infinix dey sell their zero 5 plus?
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by MistadeRegal(m): 12:10am On Apr 21, 2018|
Just $400 only.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by henry007(m): 12:42am On Apr 21, 2018|
It's not cheap tho. There's Nokia 7 Plus competing at that price.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by OVA200(m): 6:56am On Apr 21, 2018|
henry007:This phone is better than Nokia 7 plus now, I don't see a single advantage Nokia 7 have on this phone.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by fibonacci2526: 7:59am On Apr 21, 2018|
Una don start. First the processor is sd660 while that of the Samsung s8 and oneplus 5T is sd835 so don't even go there. It is overpriced because most sd660 devices are not as expensive as this and Elephone software is shitty. Anyone splurging on this one is on his or her own, no wonder the sale of the phone is performing badly in the market. The market price shouldn't be more than $350-380. I wouldn't even buy their brand even for that price. Go and watch techtablets review on the phone, you go know.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by fibonacci2526: 8:00am On Apr 21, 2018|
Dem don get sense small small, they launched it for $460ish then.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by OVA200(m): 8:07am On Apr 21, 2018|
fibonacci2526:I've watched most of the English reviews on YouTube that why am stunned by the phone, you can't use one review to determine the fate of the phone what about the other reviews like tech brother's, IT tech's, Red skull's, Mr whoistheboss's etc.
On the side of the chipset that what I don't know how they manage to do that with SD660 making it faster in opening apps than S8 and multitasking.
On their software that the beauty of android you can change the launcher or even tweak the phone if you like.
The phone is not expensive for a phone that can stand Samsung galaxy S8, name a phone in that price range that can beat this phone. Remember how much infinix is selling their zero 5 plus and how mid-range Samsung like J7 pro, A9, A5 (2017), Note 5 and how much their selling their S7 edge that when you will realize this phone not too expensive.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by BRIGHTRIVERS(m): 8:23am On Apr 21, 2018|
OVA200:Well said bro. But then, it is a civilized world does not mean every one is civilized. Is this phone only available online? Some people see online purchase as a waste of time. Some others see buying of ordinary pouches and battery online which shipping fee will be inclusive is a waste of money.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by MistadeRegal(m): 8:24am On Apr 21, 2018|
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by BRIGHTRIVERS(m): 8:25am On Apr 21, 2018|
henry007:Is it available offline?
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by OVA200(m): 8:34am On Apr 21, 2018|
BRIGHTRIVERS:Good point bro, anybody that sees online purchase as a waste of time should then deal with all goods he/she sees within their environment but someone who know how to order for the phone ordering for spare part shouldn't be the problem and most phone spare part are shipped free or with just 1-5 dollar shipping fee that's not much considering the price of the part is way lesser than Nigeria gotten spare part.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by fibonacci2526: 8:49am On Apr 21, 2018|
For a starter, Xiaomi mi note 3 can wipe the floor with this one. Would also consider the essential phone above this since they are being sold for the same price now. I can also chip in mi 6 that is the 4/64gb version. Huawei honor v10 is also there(just add like $20). You can't even begin to exhaust the list.
I don't care about our local players here as I don't even use their products. I am saying no way am I spending a phone on a brand whose software is shitty. Have used elephone in the past so I know what am saying. Changing and tweaking of phones is par for the course with these brand so it's nothing spectacular
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by greenhulk: 8:59am On Apr 21, 2018|
Stop comparing this with galaxy s8. YouTube videos show it's less than 1 second faster than the s8 in opening apps but why would I sacrifice that beautiful display for less than 1 second in speed of app opening. And just so u know it's because of Android 7 running on the s8 vs Android 8 running on the elephone. Try look for galaxy s8 that has been updated to Android 8 u will see it's a llt faster.
Moreover phones are not mates. S8 is a flagship phone, the elephone is a flagship killer. And trust me there are better flagship killers out there like OnePlus 5t with a better processor, Motorola motoz z2 play, LG G6. All these phones are less than $500, so instead of me spending $450 on an unknown brand like elephone I'll buy one of those. The elephone u20 is not even water resistant, no ois, and it's 1080p while s8 is qhd and has all the bells and whistles. It's a nice phone, but the reason we are not buying is because there are better alternatives at similar price.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by OVA200(m): 10:03am On Apr 21, 2018|
greenhulk:No better alternative at the same price oneplus 5T and LG G6 are now at the same price with the S8 and this phone is head and shoulder ahead of moto Z2 play (not even near) and its the same price thats why I think this deserves some recognition.
Bro S8 is better but the is phone is worth the price, and S8 display is not even better when switch to 2K and its not 1 second faster its more than that and it have a better battery life.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by fibonacci2526: 10:17am On Apr 21, 2018|
Oneplus 5T is still around $500ish, essential phone with sd835 is $400. Why do you keep saying no better phone at that price point? You can take a gamble on it though. Good luck.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by OVA200(m): 10:21am On Apr 21, 2018|
fibonacci2526:Note 3 is a good competitor but u pro is still better, it seems you are pissed off by their software but apart from that everything other thing is top notch the edge design, display, how the manage to get that speed from SD660, wireless charging, Corninlar gorilla glass 5, NFC, Face recognition, Amoled screen, RAM and ROM but I can't force you to like their software but it worth the price that's it.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by greenhulk: 10:25am On Apr 21, 2018|
First of all, only 1 phone has a better display than the s8 and that is the s9. This ulephone is great no doubt, but the display still has some tint to it when viewed from the side while the s8 maintains the same view. Check the video below, fast forward to 2:50
Also the camera on this phone is so disappointing. LG G6 is sold for around $450-$500 now, same with OnePlus 5T. S8 is still over $600
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by OVA200(m): 10:28am On Apr 21, 2018|
fibonacci2526:I dont even have money for if them but am just wow by u pro and i find it weird that despite what it boosted nobody is talking about it here.
Back to our discussion Oneplus 5T is the same price as S8 check it sir, you can state a phone of $400 with edge design, Wireless charging, Corninllar gorilla glass 5, Face recognition, Amoled screen, such a speed from SD660, Android pay, dual camera, 6GB RAM, 128GB ROM.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by nonichuks: 10:31am On Apr 21, 2018|
Offline as in in Nigerian market?
Only Nokia is.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by OVA200(m): 10:32am On Apr 21, 2018|
greenhulk:That video is even on my phone, I know but color reproduction on the phone is better you watch the video again and how saturated (over saturated) the color of the phone is. And about those price you can recheck that Oneplus 5T, LG G6 and S8 are now sold at similar price, recheck.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by henry007(m): 10:41am On Apr 21, 2018|
So if they give you Nokia 7 Plus and Elephone U Pro for free to use for the next 2 years (without the option of selling), which one would you take?
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by OVA200(m): 10:46am On Apr 21, 2018|
henry007:What sort of question is this, we are talking about the better among the two you can't come up with valid point to counter my view you are asking irrelevant question. Okay back to your question I will pick the elephone u pro ahead Nokia 7 plus since it has corninlar gorilla glass 5 am safe.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by henry007(m): 11:00am On Apr 21, 2018|
Has gorilla glass 5 ever saved any Samsung S8 user? lol Just don't drop your phone without a case on it.
To me the Nokia 7 Plus stock android beats the confusing UI that Elephone has.
Battery is bigger, don't know if it lasts longer but that's probably the case since they use the same chipset and stock android means battery is even more optimized.
Multi-tasking, also based on stock android we already know who the winner is.
Now if Nokia 7 Plus was another Elephone Phone, maybe i may not have been 100% certain about which one to go for but brand value matters and Nokia has more brand value to me.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by greenhulk: 11:23am On Apr 21, 2018|
Wait, u mean color reproductive on this phone is better than galaxy s8? Even when the video shows it's poor viewing angles with the yellow tint. Then I give up.
|Re: Why Is Elephone U Pro So Underrated? by OVA200(m): 11:24am On Apr 21, 2018|
henry007:You are doubting if Corninlar gorilla safes phone I think you need to go and watch drop tests on YouTube, why do you think include it in the first place? for decoration?
Nokia UI is not any way better than u pro UI they are both stock android they both include little twist that's all, if you doubth me check their settings, phone, message, contact, camera, calendar, it is almost similar.
I can't say specifically on the battery but both are having a good battery and we also know amoled is power efficient than LCD.
Multitasking is based on UI to you? UI have very little role to play when it comes to multitasking the deciding factor is the RAM and the processor, so because Nokia 7 plus have 4GB RAM with a little more stock android will now overpower a little more customized stock android with 6GB RAM? That's not possible, Samsung have one of the best UI in android market and S8 is one of the best multitasking phone around now did you think its a coincidence that u pro perform better in speed test and multitasking? the 2GB RAM advantage play a vital role.
Brand or no brand we are not talking about the one you will pick we are talking about the better one so no brand here.
All what you listed up is not even in favour of your Nokia 7 plus now let me list mine too.
What about the display obviously we know which is better;
RAM and ROM;
What about security on the phone we also know the better one;
What about the design and feel in the hand;
The remaining debatable part is the camera which none of us can currently boost about.
