Reviews for the Ulefone Armor 15

74.5% Ulefone Armor 15 smartphone review - Rugged outdoor phone with headphones | Notebookcheck
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.
70% Ulefone Armor 15 review
Source: Techradar English
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.

5.45":

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.346 kg:

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.
