When searching for a new smartphone on the internet you probably have seen Ulefone popping up on your screen. Ulefone Mobile is a Chinese smartphone manufacturer founded in 2005. It is headquartered in Shenzhen, China. This company is one of the biggest manufacturers of high-quality mobile devices and accessories in China. To keep the price affordable Ulefone manufactured large volumes of each model and strive to give their customers great service with professional support. They have a large group of engineers creating fresh new updates to keep your phone stable and easy to use. With their latest release, there is no doubt that they try to achieve a big smile on every face that owns their newest flagship model.
Design, Display & Camera:
The Ulefone power 3 is the latest release from their ‘power’ line. At first sight, the phone looks awesome. The screen size is huge, with 6 inches you can define it as a phablet. A trendy 18:9 display uses its full potential in FHD+ (Resolution 2160×1080): When holding it you notice the thickness. A little thicker than average due to the fact the power 3 is equipped with a huge battery which will be discussed later in this article. The back of the Ulefone is curved and on the top and bottom, you see 2 bright lasers crafted lines giving the phone an elegant look.
When looking at the camera’s there’s something special going on. Nowadays having 3 cameras on a device is becoming the new standard, but not for the Power 3. It comes with 4 camera’s: 2 on the front and 2 on the back.
On the front, the dual camera setup uses a 13MP Main and 5MP secondary sensor. With this feature, you are able to shoot selfies with a nice bokeh effect. Ulefone wouldn’t be Ulefone if they just left it like that. Next, to the dual camera, they installed a soft light to create a ‘photo-studio’ effect.
On the back, Ulefone placed a dual camera with 16MP interpolated to 21MP (Samsung S5k3p3) and a 5MP as secondary. Adjusting the bokeh effect is possible and easy to do. The Power 3 is able to blur the background as much or less you prefer. To complete it you can find a double dual flash helping you shoot decent pictures in darker places.
Performance, storage & Battery:
A phone using the name ‘power’ should score high in this part of the review. It’s the first phone in the whole wide world equipped with Mediatek’s MTK6763 octa-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz and paired with a massive 6GB of RAM. Multitasking is not a problem at all as the Helio P23 can handle it. Ulefone wants to give you the opportunity to install all the applications you desire and packed the ‘power 3’ with 64GB of internal storage. If that isn’t enough you can expand the amount of storage by placing a microSD up to 256GB. Out of the box, the phone will run on Android 7.1 but the company promised to upgrade it to the latest 8.1 (Oreo) very soon.
The main reason the device is thicker than average is that of the battery. 6080Mah, yes, this isn’t wrong spelled. A Battery with 6080mah is equipped and it will keep you from charging the phone frequently as you probably do now. The Power 3 can function as a power bank to charge other devices. When the time comes and you need to recharge this big battery beast it will be done in only 120 minutes. Thanks to the technology of Fast Charge 4.0 you don’t have to wait that long.
Ulefone’s 3rd edition of the ‘power’ line is a great phone. Having features like a big trendy display, face recognition, fast fingerprint scanner, 4 cameras, decent processor, GPS, much memory & storage and such a big battery will make this phone a superb purchase.Knowing it will update to the latest firmware you get an up to date device. With the release of the Power 3 Ulefone can prove a good phone is affordable for anyone out there!
