This phone is bad. The display's refresh rate is 52 Hz for all phones (I have tried three phones already), not 60 Hz. There is visible lag when using any app. The camera app automatically sets the brightness to the maximum (which is already too bright) and has no option to change it. This phone is so bad, that it makes Apple's iPhones look good.
Had the phone 12 mths now,works fine as a phone,accepts apps ok and gps works well.
Camera is very mediocre ,screen is not bright enough and if you are buying it for it's ruggedness- it's not .
Have had two low drops in the past month of less then a mt in height and put a long crack in the glass both times.
This was with the protective plastic screen on it too.
The side buttons are yoo easily depressed when you put it in your pocket,which causes the screen to come on and when you go to use your phone, you'll find all manner of wierd s#@t has happened in the meantime,you will then have to go through it and change settings to get it back to where you had it.
Overall, I've been happy with it aside from its screen cracking,I got it on special for Aus $178 though.
I wouldn't pay the inflated prices that are being asked now, I'd pay extra and get a known quality.
Hope this helps.
Iv had the armor x8 for a few months now and never experienced any problems os updated to android 11 giving the phone running smooth the security updates are ok regular as clock work it's not the speediest of phones but it gets the job done the battery life is good to giving 2 days of normal use witch I like this is a decent budget rugged phone with the up to date os and security patches what more could you ask for nice one ulefone
This phone lasted me only a year. In that time, the loud speaker broke first, next it started to often fall off the network/gps, next the camera stopped working, then the charging port was loose, so I had to prop the phone at a certain angle to charge it, and the last straw is the battery is now broken, all this in one year.
Love the phone, HATE the O.S.! Mine was "upgraded" to Android 11 and has been so glitchy that I'm thinking about rooting the phone to go back to Android 8 or 9. Cannot turn on the phone ringer, so I miss a lot of calls. The USB port only works for charging, and nothing else, so if you're planning on using it with your Ledger S, Good Luck. I've been researching these issues for about a week now, and have not found any answers to these issues that work.
i bought this phone in April or may and it is now Nov, my phone has completely shut off and wont turn back on, no charge light or anything. i have not even had this phone a year and i cant get ahold of customer service for any help
I have this for about a month.
I cannot agree with the others above: this phone is for adventuring.
I made photos, panorama and macros as well. In case you need extreme zoom with cristal clear composition just buy a camera. It is for record memories and connect to a location during an excursion only.The LED on the back is quite enough in the tent before I go to bed. In case you want closeup night pictures, find your beam before.
In case you want to play PUBG buy a notebook. It is definitely not for that. In case you want to watch videos and listen to music online buy a tablet and a BT woofer, same reason. And I don't know: I feel it ok about the speed. Maybe the the "one app at a time" method I usually use has some impact on the overall speed, but I'm not sure ... Maybe you just let the battery overheat only. Once try it on a glacier...
This phone is good, when you go to high mountains and loose between the rocks. Operates for FIVE days of course without any wifi connection (in the mountains there's nothing like that, it's unbelievable) and without watching the screen continuously. On the other it finds GPS fast and reliable when you have only this and your legs to move on.
This phone is good, when you make a cycle tour and the rain drums on your forehead for hours but have no cover to check the time either. It works even after you fell it down and the truck from behind you drove through. Or after you had found it in the mud and washed clean with some water from a bottle. How funny. I like it...
But: I miss the wireless charging: I'm afraid the plugs wear out as I usually recharge it. Or simply put a solar panel on its back....
This one-thumb operating menu system is great. I use it on the bike.
There's no need the 3.5 jack: I use Bluetooth in case. My watch use the same. It just another hole on the cover.
I'll sign when I will change to another. It will takes a while.
I just received my unit two days ago and for the price point of US$160 I consider this a pretty decent bargain. However, the battery drain can be an eye-opener during the course of the day.
It's hard to put to words the depth of fail of this smart phone.
Camera is slow to focus and mediocre in quality.
Battery lasts about two days but takes ages to charge.
Fingerprint sensor fails to read 9/10 times.
My favourite fail is performance. Phone will lag and freeze when switching to a different app, when going online, when switching to a different menu of am already open app, it will even lag and freeze will accessing is own android menu, for front out loud.
Seems durable as a brick and about as usual as one.
However, if you are interested in calling someone underwater, -and only that- I suppose this is a phone for you. Anything else, any other function is an exercise in futility or a wonderful anger management session (a slow and painful one, but oh well).
i own the phone since one week ....The guys from ulefone have lot to improve in X8, the triple camera is with ouful colour preference,th focus is annoying slow, the pictures...my ex xiomiredmi 3s with ONE camera has made way more good pictures.Not watching videos and not playng games battery in best scenario-two days NOT even a bit more.The phone lags some times.BUT the worst has not to come-the fingerprint sensor oh my goodness, so far just great expectations, hope they fix some of those with OTA uodate.
Camera was not good in low light conditions, and then camera died completely within a couple of days of recieving unit. Overall I think the Build Quality is average witht his unit, and the rubber covers making it waterproof don't seem like they will last.
So does this have Mediatek A25 or P22, reviews seem to have different processors, some have P22 and some A25 :/
Great phone but it is too big!!
Also it has worse processor then Ulefone Armor x5!
But great idea to put fingerprint reader in it..
It looks like Pocophone on steroid. Damn nice especially the yellow accent. Too bad the specs too low.
It looks like a galaxy xcover field pro... 🤯🤣🤣🤣
Why does it have 2 DEPTH CAMERAS?! One is enough I think it isn't even possible to have 2 because a depth sensor combines 2 pictures into one good one so yeah maybe it forces to make 2 pictures at the same time? Let me know
It's good phone but specs are low
