After the appearance of the first “bezel-less” devices, Chinese manufacturers began to stamp all new models with huge screens and thin frames.

Some of them are equipped with a very good “hardware”, but are significantly cheaper than smartphones promoted brands.

Later, Ulefone began to create devices for the initial and mid-budget segments. This year, the subbrand introduced the smartphone Ulefone Power 3S in our review, which received such interesting features as a fashion ratio of 18: 9 and a dual camera in 2018.

On the back of the smartphone is located the vertically double camera. The LED flash fits on the left side of camera modules is an interesting solution, from which the smartphone only won in the visual plan. Near the camera is a fingerprint scanner, which has a round shape.

The smartphone is available in three colors: black and rose gold.

The Ulefone Power 3S of display in our analisis received a 6.0-inch diagonal, an IPS matrix and Full HD Plus resolution (2160 × 1080 pixels).

For its price, the screen is not bad, with good viewing angles.

Format 18: 9 is convenient for viewing content in social networks and video.

Not all games and applications, however, still support this format, but given its growing popularity, the situation will soon change in 2018.

Ulefone Power 3S: Hardware and Performance

The Power 3S in the test is based on the MediaTek MT6763 chipset. This is a single-chip system for budget smartphones.

For the latest demanding games, it is good, and with everyday tasks (Internet surfing, social networking, working with applications and watching videos) is doing quite well.

The processor supports up to 16MP photo modules and screens with Full HD Plus resolution.

The capacity of RAM is decent 4 GB. The built-in flash drive is designed for 64 GB. If necessary, the memory can be expanded with microSD cards up to 256GB.

Ulefone Power 3S: Cameras

One of the features of the smartphone Power 3S is the presence of a dual camera equipped with 16 and 5-megapixel sensors.

It supports shooting modes such as blurring the background, eliminating face flaws, HDR.

Therefore, the second sensor in everyday life really only very limited use and probably just serves as a “marketing” argument.

But that does not mean that the main camera can not convince. What about these?

Let’s start in daylight. The pictures of the Ulefone Power 3S are sufficiently sharp with a good detail. Even colors are clear and are reproduced naturally.

Ulefone Power 3S Review: All You Need for Real Phone low Price in 2018

The Ulefone Power 3S, like most other Ulefone smartphones, is more likely to rely on natural colors, as do Apple’s iPhones. Samsung smartphones, for example, pick up colors significantly to create something “more vibrant” photos, Ulefone does not.

What is stylistically better now depends on your taste. White balance and exposure are well chosen by the Ulefone Power 3S in 2018.

What does it look like in the Low Light? The Ulefone Power 3S is not a low light monster! Which should not surprise too much with a 16-megapixel sensor and an aperture of f2.2.

In extreme conditions, the picture is quickly noisy and out of focus. I would not call the low light performance of the Ulefone Power 3S as below average, but this is more in the middle range for a $200 smartphone.

Finally, what about the background blur? Does this feature work well? It works, but cutting out the foreground objects is not perfect either. Looking at the pictures in detail, often smaller errors can be detected. This makes the Ulefone Power 3S even better.

Incidentally, the front camera also has a depth-of-field effect, which can even be described as quite good for a front camera.

Ulefone Power 3S: Operating system

I’m glad that the device from the “box” is installed Android 7.1 Nougat with a small customization from the manufacturer.

However, the UI is sometimes difficult. There are many black and white to blue contrasts used.

The standard Android really kind of a bit more airy here. What is better depends on your taste?

In addition, there is also a design app, in which it is possible to download other designs after registering with Ulefone.

Of the 64GB of memory built into the Power 3S, there are still around 52.6GB available.

Ulefone Power 3S: Battery

What’s frustrating in Power 3S in our analisis is a battery. The company before released on the market devices that could boast of powerful batteries.

Ulefone Power 3S Review: All You Need for Real Phone low Price in 2018

The novelty has received the huge battery for 6350mAh. There is support for the fast charging function, and it pleases.

Given the good display resolution and not the most productive chipset, the battery capacity should be enough for 2 days or 3 working days in the normal mode.

Ulefone Power 3S: Conclusions and Reviews

Ulefone Power 3S in our reviews has a great advantage, it is very small and compact despite the large display.

Ulefone Power 3S Review: All You Need for Real Phone low Price in 2018

Nevertheless, it is a midrange budget device with an average of somewhat outdated SoC, a Full HD Plus display, and a big battery life.

The workmanship is good, it does not look like a $200 device, and the software is relatively up to date.

The display is that it is a Full HD Plus display is ok. The battery life is also so-so good than other midrange budget devices.
