Elephone A6 Mini Review by Mustiboy(m): 10:10pm On May 10
The Elephone a6 mini is a budget smartphone a little over 100 USD, and it has a lot of promising feautures for its price. I ordered for two via the services of noobody, and I am pleased to say he delivered as he has always done. You can contact him for yours. I collected both phones from the post office without any hassles on Tuesday, and I've been playing around with one of them.

I ordered for two via the services of noobody, and I am pleased to say he delivered as he has always done.

Here is a quick overview of its soecs:
Helio A22 2.0ghz quad core (12nm process).
Android 9 pie.
4gb ram/ 32gb rom.
3200mah battery.
16mp + 2mp double rear camera.
16mp front facing camera.
Dual 4g support.

Here is a quick overview of its specs:
5.71inch water drop notch.
720*1520 resolution.
Helio A22 2.0ghz quad core (12nm process).
Android 9 pie.
4gb ram/ 32gb rom.
3200mah battery.
16mp + 2mp double rear camera.
16mp front facing camera.
Dual 4g support.

Now let's get on with the review.

Re: Elephone A6 Mini Review by Mustiboy(m): 10:11pm On May 10
Design

The Elephone a6 mini has a simple design: the back is made of plastic, but it's hard to tell. The fingerprint scanner, which is mounted on the side, made the back to look simple.


The device is very beautiful on the front, and it comes with a glass screen protector pre-applied. And oh, there's also a silicone case in the box, but I removed it immediately after I tested on the phone because it made the device look bulky and ugly. the silicone case is nothing to write home about, So, I'd advice that you use the device without it.

The screen looks very sharp. It's hard to believe that it's an hd+ screen. The bezels are very minimal, and the water drop notch looks exceptionally beautiful.

Software

This device really shines in this department. The software is well implemented. Multitasking is satisfying. Apps are not killed in the background, and switching between apps is also effortless. The Android 9 card style interface also does justice to this. The device is fast enough for an Helio a22 device. Gta San Andreas, FIFA 14, and FIFA mobile all run seamlessly.

Re: Elephone A6 Mini Review by Mustiboy(m): 10:23pm On May 10
Battery

At first, the battery of this device struggled to get 6hrs SOT, but after some little tweaks, I noticed a big improvement; every 10% now lasts 50-60 mins SOT– Meaning you should get roughly 8-9 hrs SOT. On normal usage, it will last you a a full day with roughly 30% left depending on your usage.

Note: my data was on throughout usage.

I also noticed that gta San Andreas doesn't consume much battery on this device. I played it for about an hour and lost only 10% of battery juice. This is commendable for a 3200mah battery.

Re: Elephone A6 Mini Review by Mustiboy(m): 10:31pm On May 10
Camera

The camera of this device is very but takes pretty decent pictures nonetheless. The only downside is that the both the rear and front facing camera are over-saturated. ( Something tecno do on most of this devices) I don't like this and I've been on look out for a third party camera app that will perform better.

The side fingerprint works perfectly and is very fast. The only downside is that your thumb will occasionally touch it, hence, leading to several haptic feedbacks indicating unrecognized fingerprint.


The speaker is quite loud, but I think that of the umidigi a3 is better.



Overall, I think this device is okay for its price.
Lemme know what if you have any questions.

I don't remember. It's been long I've had it on my laptop—3 years now. Meanwhile, you can get it on rexdl

what are the tweaks you did to make your ba3 last longer? I want to know if I can apply it to my umidigi A3 pro..I get an average of 5hours SOT on 3300mah battery

I've used both umidigi a3 and a3 pro, and I observed that they get hot and have poor battery life.

This device doesn't get hot. the battery is very strong for a 3180mah battery. I also observed that the battery seems to have improved over the time of usage. Yes, like I said in my review, I barely got 6hrs sot on first usage. The tweaking I did wasn't much. If I disable them, the battery will still last long. The battery just improved on its own.

Below is a screenshot of yesterday's intense usage. I played music on loudspeaker all through, and my data, as well, was on throughout.

so there is no solution for the poor battery life?
Re: Elephone A6 Mini Review by sheggsliveth: 3:39pm On May 15

Does it get warm when using?
The battery is quite very ok

I've used both umidigi a3 and a3 pro myself.

Yes, the elephone a6 mini is slimmer than umidigi a3. Umidigi a3 is not even slim; it's bulky.

You will be surprised when you handle this device yourself, especially at night. It doesn't get warm, talk less getting hot. But it gets a little bit warm during the day under sunlight (this is because of heat generated from the sun); and it gets hot when playing FIFA mobile and Bb racing 2 which are both online. But even my xiaomi redmi 5 plus used to get hot when playing the aforementioned games.

The device doesn't support band 28, so glo 4g lte won't work. Glo just launched band 3 though, and it should work if you're in the coverage area.

you're welcome. You will surely enjoy the device. The 4gb is doing justice to making it fast in multitasking. Lemme know if you have any inquiries.
