Ulefone Power 2, Perfect Secondary Device Review: Design, Display, Camera, Processor, Battery, Hardware and Price

Ulefone usually won’t come into our mind if you think about the Chinese Smartphones. The reason behind it is that it is not available officially in India. We can import that smartphone using the Chinese e-commerce websites. People recently received that phone from TomTop.com, the e-commerce site in China. It made the device Ulefone’s which is the newest battery-centric device available to the users through its official website.

The octa-core 1.5GHz MediaTek MTK6750T powers this smartphone. A 13.0MP camera is present on the rear side of the phone, and we can see the 8.0MP camera on the front aspect of the phone.

Ulefone Power 2 Review:

Design:

Manufacturers finished the smartphone with glossy black and covered most of the front fascia. They protected it with the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Layer to have the scratch resistance. Ulefone Power 2 sports the large 5.5-inch Full HD display. We can find the Home Button which houses the fingerprint scanner below the screen.

Power 2 has the attractive large bezel both at the top and bottom. There are no capacitive navigation keys next to the Home Button. So, we have to use on-screen navigation keys to perform back and new functions. A 3.5mm audio jack is present in this smartphone.

A 13-megapixel camera is present on the rear panel. It also had the LED flash under the low light shots. On the right-hand side, we can see the volume control and power buttons. Manufacturers located the hybrid SIM tray which holds dual micro-SIM cards or one SIM and one microSD card at the left-hand side. At the bottom customers can see the monoaural speaker and the micro-USB port for connectivity. Plastic covers the whole body, and it is easily susceptible to scratches.

Display:

The Ulefone Power-2 features the 5.5-inch full HD display, an LCD panel.

This smartphone does not have the capability to give the different display modes to play. We have to use the third party apps if you want the various screen options. However, it supports the adaptive brightness and screencast.

Hardware:

A MediaTek MT6750T SoC (System On Chip), the entry level chip powers the device. It is based on the 28nm manufacturing process and sports an octa-core processor with Cortex-A53. For storage, we can use the 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 64GB of internal storage. We can extend the storage further using the microSD card. To drive the device’s full HD display, Ulefone Power 2 uses the Mali T860 MP1 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit). Even though the company says, it supports the 4G VoLTE the handset did not contain that facility.

Performance:

The touch sensibility is not that much good, and the handset fails to register the input. Even though it includes the 4GB of RAM, we will face a lot of problems with UI shutter and can notice a lag. The call quality of this phone is satisfactory, and the handset will give us the loud and crystal clear experience. Even if we are in the noisy environment, also we can hear the calls. It will not have the 4G VoLTE bands for India.

Battery life:

Ulefone Power 2 has the 6050 mAh battery. Under the regular usage pattern, this mobile can stand in active mode up to two days. The standard usage pattern includes a few calls, 20 minutes of casual gaming, 30 minutes of time on the social media, and day-long chat on the WhatsApp. If you use the phone by keeping the maximum brightness, it lasts for a day.

It supports the quick charging, and the battery will charge fully within two hours. With a single charge, we can use this mobile for the entire week as a secondary phone. Users can use it to charge our first phones in times of crisis. For that purpose, manufacturers included the USB OTG cable along with the phone.

Software:

Usually, users will see the software version soon after switching the phone. The Chinese Vendors will always send Android updates to this smartphone. Let’s hope soon it will receive the VoLTE update for compatibility with Indian bands in the coming days. Chinese manufacturers tried to customize the software on this phone, but everything remains same. Only the change they did is some UI and icon customization.

Ulefone won’t have the preloaded Google Apps. We have to install the Google Drive and Photos separately. Manufacturers pre-installed only the Parallel Space app which permits us to run the different instances of the same app on the phone.

However, the phone failed to respond to touch inputs during several incidences.

Camera:

A 16-megapixel camera is present at the rear side of the phone (but takes 15-MP shots). Individuals can use the 8-megapixel front shooter for shooting the casual selfies.

The photos that we shot under the right lighting condition in the auto mode will be good. The low light images are not nice and better to avoid them in this phone. When the ambient light is available, we can use the front camera for capturing the casual selfies.

Coming to the video quality, it can record the Full HD 1080p videos at 30 frames per second using the primary camera.

The Price of the Ulefone Power 2:

It costs about $169.99 on the TomTop website approximately equals to Rs 11,000.

The Final Verdict:

As it is the Chinese smartphone, there are no service centers in India. If you encountered any problem in this phone, there is no way to recover it. We can buy it if you have the handful of money and want to use it as a secondary handset.
