Design:
It’s too thin that is my first impression when I saw it. The thickness is only 7mm so that we can put it into wallet. The USB jack and headphone jack is in the top. Maybe the headphone is a little small; it’s not easy insert the headphone. The frame is made of metal and we can find the power button and volume buttons on it. However, it is difficult to press these buttons down. The features of the back include main camera, dual LED light, logo and speaker. We can remove the rear cover to replace battery, SIM and Micro SD. It’s a great design to somebody who wishes to get long battery.

Display:
5’’ IPS QHD 960x540 display. It is enough big to view video with 5 inch screen. However, the definition is disappointing because it’s only 960 x 540. Most of the IPS display is good at view angles. Of course, this display also is great at view angles. What’s more, the brightness is OK. We can see the text clearly even in high light. As for color reproduction, it’s amazing.

Camera:
There are four modes in camera including Panorama mode, Face beauty mode, Live Photo mode and Normal mode. In the Panorama mode, we can take many photos, and then combine with these photos to get a bigger photo. If we want to become more beautiful in photo, we should choose the Face beauty mode. The live photo mode is interesting. In this mode, we can get a live photo when take photos. We can adjust the white balance and ISO to adjust to different scene for better photos in normal mode.

We review the phone in normal light and low light. The result is disappointing. Speed is slowly in normal light and the resolution is not enough. It’s worse in low light. The camera even can’t focus in low light and there are so many noisy points. The sample is dark when ISO is 400. And then we adjust the ISO to 800, the sample becomes light but more noisy points. It’s only praiseworthy that taking and saving photos is quickly.

OS:
The ROM makes some improvements base on Android 4.4. It’s very smooth and concise on the whole. There are many beautiful wallpapers for choosing. Many interesting widgets are prepared for you to show your character. The interface of music player is succinct and tone quality is well. Besides, it’s very smooth when we watch video even we speed video. However, the phone became hot after watching video long time.
There are many useful pre-positioned apps such as Gmail, Maps, and Sound Recorder.

Battery:
The thickness is too thin to the battery is only 1950mah. However, the screen resolution is low and MTK6582 is power saving, so you can charge it once a day even longer time.
Conclusion:
Elephone P10C is stand out at design and ROM, but the camera need to improve. In my opinion, the P10C is worth owning.
