On the Elephone S8, the China-based OEM carefully selected trending features like bezel-less displays, 4,000mAh battery and embedded on the device and even further spiced the S8 with add-ons like 2K display, a super fast processor and more (affordable price point) as condiments.

On the outside, the Elephone S8 is a total beauty. A fine piece of glossy rectangular metal slab. The device is a really big one (weighs 180 grams and measures 158.0 mm x 80.0 mm x 8.0 mm in dimension) but yet manages to be a little light in the hands despite its size and internal components.
One of the major highlight specs of the Elephone S8 smartphone is the display. The S8 comes with a tri-bezeless 6.0-inch display with a 2K resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels). The display quality of the Elephone S8 is undoubtedly my favourite thing about the device. Being a display using the IPS technology, sharp and bright images and colours with decent contrast and viewing angles is definitely assured.
There is a fingerprint scanner below the display and to allow the S8 be as tri-bezeless as possible, the selfie camera has been moved to the bottom right corner on the front.
There is a single 21-megapixel lens on the rear and an 8-megapixels selfie shooter up front.
The device lacks the 3.5mm headphone jack so you are left with a USB to headphone adapter that ships with the device.
On the inside, the Elephone S8 does equally amazing; using the MediaTek Helio X25 SoC with Deca-core that can clock up to 2.5GHz. There is 4GB of RAM in place for multitasking and 64GB for file storage.
Battery-wise, the S8 is also a monster. The 4,000mAh battery of the device is not detachable but long-lasting. Thanks to the inherent Fast Charging capability, the device’s battery fills up in about 2 and a half hours.
