Ulefone Power 3
Ulefone Power 3 is the successor of the 1. Quarter 2017 published Ulefone Power 2, Although both devices are only a few months apart, has changed a lot, especially in terms of the display and the camera equipment. Especially after the success of the Ulefone Power 2, the Power 3 could become a very interesting successor.
The display of the Ulefone Power 3 triggers on one Display diagonal of 6 inches with an 2160 1080 x pixels and thus follows the trend of the recently released China smartphones. The dot density is 401 PPI, which means that individual pixels are barely visible to the naked eye. The Aspect ratio of 18: 9, will significantly affect the handling and general use of the smartphone. The display is of the "in-cell" type and, thanks to the combination of digitizer and LCD display, enables a more compact panel with lower weight and improved display. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4, a particularly durable branded display glass. The Screen-to-Body Ratio, ie the ratio of the display to the housing, is given by Ulefone 90.8% on. Often these values are far-fetched and do not correspond to reality. Based on the specified by Ulefone Case dimensions of 159.2 x 75.9 x 9.85 mm and the values of the display, would be one Screen-to-body ratio of 76.89 percent result. For comparison, a Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 achieves a screen-to-body ratio of 80.79 percent.
Processor and memory
As one of the first smartphones is the Ulefone Power 3 with a MediaTek Helio P23 System-on-chip (MTK6763) equipped. This processor works with a total of 8 Cortex-A53 processor cores (octa-core) clocking up to 2.5 GHz. By "Heterogeneous Multi-Processing" The efficient distribution of power to the individual clusters also succeeds. The graphics unit of the system-on-chip is the ARM Mali-G71 MP2 GPUwho should get along well with mobile games. Also the storage facilities the Power 3 is impressive. The manufacturer is here for a 6GB LDPPR4X memory and one 64GB eMMC5.1 Flash Memory decided. A memory expansion by MicroSD memory card is possible. But you have to do without the dual SIM function of the smartphone!
A major innovation compared to the predecessor model is the camera equipment. The smartphone is with a 16 + 5 Megapixel (21MP Interpolated) main camera and a 8 + 5 Megapixel (13MP Interpolated) front camera fitted. The main sensor of the main camera comes from Samsung and bears the name Samsung S5K3P3, The aperture of the main camera is f / 2.0, that of the front camera f / 2.2. Ulefone hopes for one with the use of two image sensors "DSLR-like" bokeh effect, How well the effect comes across, will have to show in the test. For improved shots in low light conditions, the main camera is also with a Dual tone LED flash fitted. Viewable selfies should be viewed in low light conditions "Soft Light" be achieved.
Design, battery and others
Due to the aspect ratio of 18: 9, the Ulefone Power 3 becomes a special slim smartphone in a noble metal case, The huge one 6.080 mAh battery makes the smartphone but also significantly thicker (9.85 mm) and heavier (210g) than many other 18: 9 device. In general, one battery charge should be sufficient for a multi-day use. Ulefone is promoting the Power 3 with a rechargeable battery "Light-Speed Fast Charge 4.0" quick charge functionthat the battery is already after 120 Minutes should charge completely.
Also advertised big Android 8.1 as the operating system of the Power 3. In a nutshell, however, Ulefone writes that the smartphone initially shipped with Android 7.1 becomes. Android 8.1 Oreo will then be submitted "very soon" via OTA update. smarten Entsperrfunktionen are available and amount to one "Face ID" Face detection and one Fingerprint scanner on the back of the case. With the AW8763 hi-fi chip the smartphone also wants to score in terms of sound quality. Other features include the support of Dual-band WiFi, GPS and GLONASS, sowie den typical sensors (Gyroscope, proximity sensor, e-compass, brightness sensor, accelerometer), Bluetooth 4.1 and Notification LED, The usual in this country 2G, 3G and 4G frequencies and bands are all supported.
Already on the data sheet leaves the Ulefone Power 3 a positive impression. A powerful smartphone with 18: 9 display sounds tempting. The storage equipment leaves nothing to be desired. With the use of the Helio P23 The smartphone is equipped with a new mid-range processor that should provide enough power in everyday life. Somewhat critical is the view of the camera selection. The use of multiple image sensors does not coincide with a good recording quality. This has already been shown on the basis of other China smartphones with dual camera that often a single sensor would have been the better choice. It remains interesting how well Ulefone has matched the Power 3 cameras to the Imagiq 2.0 ISP of the Helio P23. As soon as the test specimen is reached, the detailed test report of the Ulefone Power 3 follows!
