The year 2015 has seen some new players in the budget smartphone segment who have introduced some really awesome devices. One of such companies is Ulefone, who has caught our attention previously with the Ulefone Paris and the Ulefone Be Touch 3. And in this new year 2016, the company is going to set the budget market to fire with its next flagship, the Ulefone Power.
Let’s talk about looks first. The Ulefone Power seems to draw some design traits from the Be Touch 3, yet looks significantly different. Yes, it looks premium, gorgeous, and elite, and the special variant with a wooden back gives it the much-needed exclusivity. The placement of the camera module, speakers, and the fingerprint sensor at the rear is perfect, while the front looks clean and almost bezel-less. The phone is slim and, undoubtedly, sexy.
Coming to the specifications, the Ulefone Power is a beast in the sub-$200 segment and has the potential to defeat the likes of the latest Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 in most of the departments. The Ulefone Power gets a metal frame and an abrasion-proof back cover. It flaunts a 5.5-inch FullHD LTPS display with 2.5D curved glass and Gorilla Glass 3 on the top. Powering the smartphone is a 64-bit octa-core MTK6753 processor coupled with 3GB LPDDR3 RAM and 16GB of internal storage (expandable up to 128GB).
Talking about the camera department, the Ulefone Power sports the best 13MP smartphone camera in the world. It gets a 13MP Sony IMX214 camera at the rear with dual-tone dual LED flash and a very good f/1.8 aperture for great low light photography and zero shutter lag. Selfies and video calls are provided by a 5MP front camera.
The Ulefone Power gets a fast fingerprint sensor at the rear that captures your fingerprint within 0.3 seconds. The phone also gets Infrared connectivity and dual standby dual 4G LTE SIM slots. The lock key in the phone can be used to launch the camera quickly with a press, or it also can be held for long to launch the voice recorder.
The phone has a massive 6,050mAh battery that will run at least 3 days on normal usage; the addition of the Pump Express Plus quick charge technology charges the phone in just 30 minutes for a normal one day usage. Lastly, the Ulefone Power runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box, but the company has promised to update the phone to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in February after its release.
So there you have it. In a nutshell, the Ulefone Power gets an impressive screen, a very fast octa-core CPU, 3GB RAM, great 13MP/5MP cameras, a long-lasting battery, fingerprint sensor, latest Android updates, and so much more. The phone is available in Black, White, and Wooden finish. And all this for just a price tag of $179.99! Definitely a “budget” flagship killer!
