Most of all it is cheap...and inexpensive

Although the specs promise a great phone and set high expectations, you shouldn't set your hopes too high.
Memory is very limited (only 1,2 GB left for installing software) and not addressed very efficiently. Apps2SD or Link2SD doesn't work for the remaining 12GB...and external MicroSD cards are not handled very well.
Biggest challenge and most common remark/complaint on http://bbs.elephone.hk/ however is the battery. It drains quite fast.

Support from Elephone is quite limited and the phone is not very popular amongst enthusiasts, so custom ROMs are not very likely.

...but as long as you don't expect too much at this price....it is good value for money (at least I am quite happy with it...except for the WiFi problems).

Btw: there is another tread about the P2000 at http://forum.xda-developers.com/andr...-7ghz-t2826632
this includes the ROM updates and links

About the app partition, you can fix this. Mine has now 7GB of app space which is lot more than what almost anyone needs.
Look at Marsapa custom tom on NeedRom. He is now at version 3. The ROM works perfectly. The phone is really great.
The only problem that remains and will probably last, is the battery life. About 2 to 2:30 hours max (when screen on).
Just because of that, I'm looking for a replacement.
