    The folks at Elephone have a crazy new smartphone they just announced. It's crazy for a variety of reasons. First, it has a crazy name, the Elephone Vowney. While you are trying to wrap your head around that one, the price is equally as crazy: $299.99. Why is that a crazy price? Because the specs are crazy as well!

    I qas looking at this phone for months on their website and if i wasnt with Verizon I would get it. But with that not happening I got the Note 5. Will see next year what they bring and what options I will have. I am curious how this will stack up to the P9000.

    I wish this was available on verizon. Looks like some pretty decent specs at a pretty decent price.
