March 30, 2015 - Written By Nick Sutrich

The Elephone P5000 is the latest in the lineup of affordable yet well performing phones from the Chinese manufacturer.  You’ll find in our unboxing that Elephone includes a number of extras in the package that’s sure to make any user happy, including a really cool little USB-OTG adapter so that you can plug a regular sized USB cable into your phone.  This allows you to use standard thumb drives and other USB accessories like a mouse on your phone without any modifications.  These will surely come in handy for those that love mobile gaming and want a more precise and fun way to interact with games that try to work on touch screens using more traditional controls.

Overall the Elephone P5000’s package is a pretty good one featuring a 5-inch  1080p screen, a physical home button with a fingerprint scanner inside, and a massive 5350mAh battery that’s rated to get you through a couple days with normal use.  Inside you’ll find an 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor which powers through games and other media with no problem.  You’re also getting a 16-megapixel camera on the back and an 8-megapixel camera on the front for great selfies.  The best part of all might be the price which comes in around $220 out the door, so you’re getting a really great specced phone for very little.  Check out our unboxing below and of course we’ll be getting you that review in a couple of days so you can see just how Elephone’s latest fairs.
