Ulefone Power 3 smartphone

Ulefone Power 3 - 18: 9 smartphone with 6080 mAh battery

The Ulefone Power 3 is a smartphone whose main focus is on the huge 6.080 mAh battery. In contrast to the previous model, many things have changed. Following the trend, the Power 3 relies on an 6 inch display with 18: 9 aspect ratio. You can find all further information about the smartphone in this article!

The Ulefone Power 3 is the successor to the one that appeared in the 1st quarter of 2017  Ulefone Power 2 . Although the two devices are only a few months apart, a lot has changed, especially in terms of the display and camera equipment. Especially after the success of the Ulefone Power 2, the Power 3 could be an interesting successor.

The display of the Ulefone Power 3 has a display diagonal of 6 inches with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and thus follows the trend of the recently frequently released Chinese smartphones. The dot density is 401 PPI, which means that individual pixels can hardly be seen with the naked eye. The aspect ratio of 18:9 will have a significant impact on the handling and general use of the smartphone. The display is of the "In-Cell" type and, by combining the 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. Ulefone states the screen-to-body ratio, i.e. the ratio of the display to the housing, as 90.8%. Often these values ​​are far-fetched and do not correspond to reality. Based on the case dimensions of 159.2 x 75.9 x 9.85 mm specified by Ulefone and the display values, this would result in a screen-to-body ratio of 76.89 percent. For comparison, a  Xiaomi Mi Mix 2  achieves a screen-to-body ratio of 80.79 percent.

Processor and memory

The Ulefone Power 3 is one of the first smartphones to be equipped with a MediaTek Helio P23 system-on-chip (MTK6763). This processor works with a total of 8 Cortex-A53 processor cores (octa-core) that clock at up to 2.5 GHz. “Heterogeneous Multi-Processing” also enables efficient power distribution to the individual clusters. The graphics unit of the system-on-chip is the ARM Mali-G71 MP2 GPU, which should handle mobile games well. The storage capacity of the Power 3 is also impressive. The manufacturer has chosen a 6GB LDPPR4X RAM and a 64GB eMMC5.1 flash memory. Memory expansion using a MicroSD memory card is possible. However, you then have to do without the dual SIM function of the smartphone!

A significant innovation compared to the previous model is the camera equipment. The smartphone is equipped with a 16+5 megapixel (21MP interpolated) main camera and an 8+5 megapixel (13MP interpolated) front camera. The main sensor of the main camera comes from Samsung and is called Samsung S5K3P3. The aperture of the main camera is f/2.0, that of the front camera is f/2.2. Ulefone promises a “DSLR-like” bokeh effect through the use of two image sensors. The test will have to show how well the effect comes across. The main camera is also equipped with a dual-tone LED flash for improved recordings in poor lighting conditions. Viewable selfies should be achieved in poor lighting conditions using a “soft light”.

Design, battery and others

Thanks to the aspect ratio of 18:9, the Ulefone Power 3 is a particularly slim smartphone in an elegant metal housing. The huge 6.080 mAh battery also makes the smartphone significantly thicker (9.85 mm) and heavier (210g) than many other 18:9 devices. In general, one battery charge should be enough for several days of use. To ensure that the battery is recharged quickly, Ulefone advertises the Power 3 with a “Light-Speed ​​Fast-Charge 4.0” quick-charging function, which should fully charge the battery after just 120 minutes.

Android 8.1 is also widely advertised as the operating system for the Power 3. However, Ulefone writes in detail that the smartphone will initially be delivered with Android 7.1. Android 8.1 Oreo will then be released “very soon” via OTA update. Smart unlocking functions are available and include “Face ID” facial recognition and a fingerprint scanner on the back of the case. With the AW8763 HiFi chip, the smartphone also wants to score points in terms of sound quality. Other features include support for dual-band WiFi, GPS and GLONASS, as well as the typical sensors (gyroscope, proximity sensor, e-compass, brightness sensor, accelerometer), Bluetooth 4.1 and a notification LED. The 2G, 3G and 4G frequencies and bands common in this country are all supported.



The Ulefone Power 3 already leaves a positive impression on the data sheet. A battery-powered smartphone with an 18: 9 display sounds tempting. The memory configuration also leaves nothing to be desired. With the use of the Helio P23, the smartphone is equipped with a new mid-range processor, which should ensure sufficient performance in everyday life. On the other hand, the view of the camera selection is a bit critical. The use of several image sensors does not result in good recording quality at the same time. Other China smartphones with dual cameras have already shown that a single sensor would often have been the better choice. It remains interesting how well Ulefone matched the cameras of the Power 3 to the Imagiq 2.0 ISP of the Helio P23. As soon as we have reached the test copy, the detailed review of the Ulefone Power 3 will follow here! 

GearBest was one of the first online retailers to list the Ulefone Power 3. The smartphone is currently available for around € 220. From December 25th to January 3rd, the smartphone is even available for only € 188. You can find out more about this via the attached link. The dispatch takes place from the middle of January!
