Its appearance with a metal frame and attractive curves will make most users think that we are in front of a high-end smartphone. Nothing is further from the reality since we have seen different points that need urgent improvement.
The first of the improvements is the connectivity to 4G networks, which does not exist. The S8 belongs to the Ulefone 3G smartphone and this greatly limits the device. As well as its internal storage capacity. We have microSD expansion up to 128 GB but the 8 GB installed will be a problem from the very beginning. There are still manufacturers that do not take into account that more than half of the storage is eaten by the operating system (Android Nougat luckily) and pre-installed applications. As soon as we install the most common applications: WhatsApp, Facebook, Email, Online Banking, etc … The full memory announcement will appear in our notification bar sooner rather than later.
Leaving aside these drawbacks that prevent it from rising to a higher range, the device has a screen of 5.3 “and resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels that is perfect for games and multimedia.MediaTeK MT6580 processor, which we saw in the Ulefone S1, quad-core does not abuse the battery and gives us good performance although 1 GB of RAM is quite short.
The cameras are in the middle of the range with a pleasant surprise. This is its dual 8 and 5 MP rear camera. Interpolated offer us images of 13 MP and videos in high definition. The front of 2 MP is relegated to the minimum services par excellence: the selfie profiles.
As an incentive we find the 2.5D curved glass that gives a pretty cool touch and the fingerprint sensor that allows us to memorize up to five different tracks. Other smartphone of similar characteristics of the brand are the Ulefone Metal Lite and the Ulefone Paris Lite. Both large devices for users who want to start in the Android world on the right foot.
