Ulefone Armor 5

Welcome to Naijatech360, looking at this mobile gives you the joy I presume, having a rugged plus notch screen design makes you feel like it a complete smartphone? I have the same feeling. 

I introduce to you “Ulefone Armor 5” the world first notch screen rugged phone. 

Ulefone Armor 5 being the first notch screen rugged phone was released in July 2018 and I think Ulefone wants to top up the game in the mobile phones market releasing three smartphones (Ulefone X, Ulefone S9 pro, Ulefone Armor 5) with nice specs which are reliable, durable, beautiful and very importantly, cheap and what’s awesome about this phone is it dual 4G LTE i.e both SIM support 4G at the same time.

The device is backed by an international standard of IP68 which means it can actually survive from 1.5m depth in the water for up to an hour or 1m depth in concrete up to a day.

so a user can swim with it and take shots in the swimming pool, use it under a raining weather and if you are thinking about the ports like charging port, headphone jack and speaker, earpiece e.t.c and camera, users have no worries because all components exposed to the outside have a high-density macromolecule coating to make them waterproof.

Ulefone Armor 5 DISPLAY

The device comes with a fantastic 5.85-inch screen size just like Ulefone X, 1512 x 720p display resolution, an 18:9 aspect ratio protected by a Corning Gorilla glass 4. 

The display quality is quite similar to Ulefone X. It displays images with vivid colors and sharp details. The phone can be operated using one hand thanks to the aspect ratio and looking at the screen to body ratio, it up to 81%. I rate the display 4/5. 

Ulefone Armor 5 HARDWARE & MEMORY

Ulefone Armor 5 is equipped with a durable MTK6763 octa-core CPU which is good for it type of phone but might not be good enough for the high mobile phone user’s.
The processor is clocked at 2.0Ghz (Frequency) supported by a 4GB RAM to speed up the process and make multitasking more flexible; swiping between open apps, launching heavy apps and surfing the internet without a slow movement. 

The device houses a 64GB ROM/internal storage which can be further expanded up to 256GB via SD card.

Ulefone Armor 5 CAMERA

It is equipped with a triple camera design, having a dual back camera of 13mp [interpolated to 16mp] + 5mp and on the front, it has an 8mp [interpolated to 13mp] which is quite a snapper.
The megapixel or the number written on at the bottom of a phone camera doesn’t really matter, what matters is the tech being behind it. 
The camera quality is the same as the Ulefone X so I wouldn’t want to waste time on it.

Ulefone Armor 5 BATTERY & POWER

wow! am kind of amazed with it battery too. it has a 5,000mAh Li-polymer battery capacity which is absolutely non-removable. 

The battery last well on normal and extensive use and it charges really fast (3hrs) thanks to 5V,2A and it supports a wireless charge technology,10W(Qi standard). It has up to 440 hours of standby time, up to 18 hours of talk-time, 10 hours video time, 38 hours music time
