Reviews for the Ulefone Armor 15
The Ulefone Armor 15 is drop and water resistant and even comes with its own completely wireless in-ear headphones. The manufacturer thus pushes both dimensions and weight to the extreme, but launches a comprehensive overall package - at a still affordable price.

The Ulefone Armor 15 has a good number of features for a rugged phone, with the built-in wireless earbuds being the standout. It also has a large battery and an IP68/IP69K rating, but these features are insufficient to compensate for the phone's shortcomings. Although rugged phones don't typically have the most vivid screens, the HD screen, and slow performance ruin the fun. If you're looking for a rugged phone with good features, the Ulefone Armor 15 should be on your short list. While the screen and processor performance are both disappointing, the phone's extremely sturdy build quality and decent main camera make it easy to recommend.

So, should you buy the Ulefone Armor 15? If you’re looking for a sleek, smooth, powerful, flagship device, I wouldn’t recommend the Armor 15 for you. Frankly it’s an ugly design, slow performer, and just plain chunky. But alternatively, for those not glued to their phone—if you’re an outdoors person, traveler, or manual worker just looking for a durable, rugged, waterproof, long-lasting phone that’s there when you need it—this may be the device for you. Those flashy, distracting, expensive glass phones can sometimes get in the way, and require more attention and care in the long run. The durable and long-lasting Ulefone Armor 15 will just get the job done.

To put it bluntly, this isn’t the most powerful rugged phone Ulefone has made, although because the interface is reasonably snappy, most users will be gloriously unaware of its limitations, at least initially. Other limitations include the inability to capture better than 1080p video, no 5G comms, and only 480p streaming of Netflix. These are mostly issues to do with the Helio G35 SoC, and its use of the ARM Cortex-A53 that needs to be put out to pasture. The inclusion of the integrated Earbuds is a nice touch, but it appears that Ulefone doesn’t list replacements should you accidentally break or lose them. Overall, the Armor 15 doesn’t take enough steps forward and suffers in comparison with the cheaper Power Armor 14 Pro(opens in new tab) design. Inevitably Ulefone will make a Pro model that addresses some of these issues, but probably not all of them.

71.3%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
