Today we are getting a hands-on look at the Elephone s7 phone. This is a great budget phone starting at only $139.99. One of the highlights of this phone is the dual-curved design which curves the front and the back panels towards the edges of the phone. Let’s take a look and see what it’s like.

Specs

The display is measured at 5.5″ with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. This is pretty standard for entry level phones. The MediaTek Helio X20 CPU has a 2.3 GHz Deca core processor. These specs are paired with either 2GB, 3GB or 4GB of RAM depending on your configuration. Camera sensors are 16 MP for the back and 8 MP for the front. There is an external microSD slot that supports expansion up to 128 GB.

These are standard budget specs but still impressive for the price tag.

Design

The model that we got our hands on today is the blue version. The color is fairly subtle but really stands out with the deep blue reflection when the light hits it.

The dual-curved design makes this phone very comfortable to hold. The Galaxy Note 7 had a similar shape, so if you’ve used the Note 7 this will feel familiar. The bezels on this phone are practically non-existent. This makes for a very bold and premium look. Definitely a stand-out feature.

As far as buttons go, the volume rocker and power buttons are in the standard position on the right side of the phone. You also have a home button in the bottom center of the front of the phone.

The phone comes in four different color options: Blue, Black, Gold and Green.

Price

The price starts at $139.99 for the base model, and the fully loaded model for only $199.99. These low prices allows people to save money on a decent smartphone, if they’re not too concerned with having the most powerful phone out there.
