Design and Display
The Elephone P8 Mini is a compact modern day looking smartphone with a pretty solid build. Besides the compactness, it is also quite light weighing just 133g. It also happens to be built from aluminium alloy which in a way accounts for the light weight. Although not bezel-less, the smartphone has reduced bezels with its fingerprint sensor located top-centrally at the back panel.
As mentioned earlier, the Elephone P8 Mini features a somewhat small 5-inch full HD display. The sort of arrangement is not common, however, it appears colourful with impressive vividness and sharp colour representation. Not to mention the 2.5D curved display as a pixel density of about 441 ppi.
Battery and Camera
Considering its small size it is understandable that the battery capacity featured here is not really on a high side. This does not man the it is low either, however, it bothers along the average capacity line. That being said, the Elephone P8 Mini cones with a 2, 860mAh Li-ion battery. This is still sufficient to go a day on full charge without charging.
The camera featured here is not bad either had it has a nice dual camera arrangement on the rear with equally impressive front shooter. This results in clear colourful images for a mid-range offering. At the rear side, there is a combination of a 13MP and 2MP camera while for selfies, you’ve got a 16MP front shooter.
Hardware and Software

Also included is a 4GB internal memory for efficient app multi-tasking and installation accompanied by a 64GB built in storage. You can decide to increase the storage space up to 128GB if you deem fit. You also get to experience the Android 7.1 Nougat straight from the box.
