Reviews for the Ulefone Armor 6E

76.2% Ulefone Armor 6E Smartphone Review – Outdoor Phone with Bargain Potential | Notebookcheck
The Ulefone Armor 6E is strongly related to the Armor 6 and even the packaging's differences come down to just one sticker. The Armor 6E is cheaper and while it offers less storage space, it also comes with a more modern SoC and better protection against the elements. In this review, we are taking a look at the outdoor smartphone in order to determine if this makes it a bargain.

If there are any active negatives to the phone beyond it not being the greatest thing since sliced bread, they would be the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack (although you can use a USB-C adapter like later iPhones), and the fact that it got stuck on Game Mode – an alternative home screen layout – with no obvious way to disable it.

The phone is a chunky beast, but it doesn’t feel particularly bulky to hold or carry. It also runs very well, no doubt in part due to the fact that its CPU is in fact more powerful than that of the Armor 6 – a Helio P70 in comparison to the latter’s P60. The camera is solid if unremarkable, with a variety of modes that you probably won’t find yourself using because of the not-quite stellar quality, but the 6E also comes with a nifty UV sensor and barometer – making it good for taking on extended outdoor trips.

80% Ulefone Armor 6E rugged smartphone review

The Ulefone Armor 6E is an exceptionally well priced rugged smartphone. Android 9, a super fast CPU, wireless charging and a gorgeous display are the highlights. The fingerprint sensor is still problematic though.
