Their devices are usually made out of metal, and offers quite a sturdy build. Well, Elephone seems to be expanding their business, they've started making higher-end devices recently when they introduced the Elephone P7000 and P8000, not to mention that their 'Vowney' flagship is going to arrive soon as well. That being said, let's talk more about the Elephone P7000, which we managed to get our hands-on actually.
