Hi everyone i came across this 2 video and was wondering how they make the smartphone look 3D and cartoonish. Do they use element 3d with simple texture? Or any other technique.

Cinema 4D has some good tools for this, but you could also do something similar with Element.

Namo Media was all done with illustrations, no 3D or even faux 3D required. The second video looks like an Element model with the textures set to flat (Illumination 100% and checkbox for diffuse color selected). To do an animated screen with Element, there are tutorials for that. It would be easier to search for one of those instead of giving you a step-by-step process here.

C4D is great for the flat 2d colors and such, but takes some real practice and time to make it look beautiful. EJ at has a lot of awesome tutorials on that, but you need C4D studio to render the stuff.
