Here's a previous thread about this phone, when it was on pre-order from Banggood at the beginning of October, for £108.49: hotukdeals.com/dea…579

For some reason Gearbest don't mention it, but according to the Banggood listing, and other sites, this does have a 3.5mm headphone jack banggood.com/Ule…tml

Also, this phone doesn't have back/home/recent tasks capacitive buttons, they're at the bottom of the screen (I personally find that slightly annoying, but it wouldn't be a dealbreaker).

Crossbow did say here hotukdeals.com/com…620"The main camera uses a Sony IMX258 sensor (the f/2.2 variant), which many other phones use, so was able to find it probably does video at 1080p@30fps & 720p@120fps."

The dual rear camera "...is a 13MP+5MP dual rear camera with dual LED flash. This arrangement of cameras gives...bokeh effect...all other features like autofocus, face detection and supports full HD recording at a quality of 1080P and 30fps."

The official Ulefone page ulefone.com/pro…tml suggests this has a 13MP Selfie Camera. It also has an LED notification light which is one colour - red - at the bottom, to the left of the front camera - bit weird having it there, but hey ho:
32383162-0v3lG.jpg
The Fingerprint Reader has 0.1s unlocking speed - you can add up to five fingerprints.

Their website also says, "If you're a music lover, you should not miss the MIX. Equipped with the advanced AW8737S audio chipset, the MIX delivers high-resolution audio in unparalleled sound quality. High dynamic range, low distortion and high volume together make what you hear is always crystal clear, pure and euphonious. Let pleasing music flow around you, enjoy the immersive audio feast."

Also, "Pure Android 7.0 Nougat breathes brand-new life into the Ulefone MIX with enhanced smoothness, more rigorous dataflow management and lower power consumption. Our engineers also add some user-friendly tweaks and changes for more delightful use." ..not sure if they're suggesting it's close to Stock Android?

Seems you can either insert two SIMs or use one as a MicroSD slot, the other for your SIM.

Screen Resolution 1280 x 720 is 267 ppi. Non-removable battery, charges by MicroUSB and no Fast Charging facility.

And how could I forget to mention, Band 20 is there too!

The specs are crazy... I would have said the screen needs to be way higher resolution, but that would be ungrateful given the price. If they put in a better screen and charged 20 pound more. It would have been unbeatable.
If the screen was higher res ( at an increased price point of course), I may have put aside my issues buying expensive tech from china and taken a punt.

Stick to Xiaomi

Hot from me.

I swore I was only going to buy Xiaomi phones from now on but the specs & price on this is smoking hot.

Very tempting indeed.

Awesome effort! Thank you!

If they charged £20 more it wouldn't sell, too close to the Redmi Note 4.

Something like this?

I own that Power 2 phone and it's brilliant

Ulephone have been around for some time and usually get half decent reviews though couldnt find a review for this one. No problems ordering from Gearbest so far apart from the wait and rubbish packaging. My Xiaomi lightbulbs were sent in a jiffy bag lol but arrived intact. Awsome spec for the money. The screen will be fine. The human eye has its limitations so forget the hype.

Can anyone work out if this actually has NFC? I've seen yes and no on different sites.

2 main negatives Compared to the Umidigi Crystal which is similarly priced (i bought it for £103 from Aliexpress) -

-720p screen

-micro usb (not usb c)

Unlikely - Chinese import phones rarely do. It might have Hotknot ...

*googles* Thanks!

The official Ulefone pics on Gearbest are a disgrace. They have photoshopped their own phone.

Have a look at the pic they use to market the phone, vs a screengrab from a YouTube review.

Spot the difference?!?!

Actually, the images I added were from other articles discussing this phone, so it's not just Gearbest displaying these. If you watch the Tech Brothers' Unboxing And Review video I added above, at 3.33 the reviewer does mention the "bezel-less" phone actually has a few mm at each side. Which is why I didn't describe it as such.

At 2:20 the same review says the front camera is 50% smaller than conventional selfie cameras, and this phone doesn't have a Proximity Sensor (not sure what that affects)? It's usually Gyroscope that's missing from cheap(er) Chinese phones.

This is from the official Ulefone website:
32386755-8X7mk.jpgI would always read/watch reviews before I bought a new phone anyway, only the brave/foolish buy "blind" on Pre-Order!

Ok, chill

That's why I said "The official Ulefone pics" in my comment.

I totally agree. I'm not having a go at your deal, or Gearbest, just the general tendency for the manufacturers to show such little faith in their products that they've got to 'shop the images to nefariously boost sales!

I am chilled, I'm not annoyed at all, just explaining and sharing more information. If you were having a go I'd just ignore you, best thing to do on here

Edit: Actually, from reading what you said again (reading comprehension fail), I thought you were implying only Gearbest had the bezel-less-type photos. I didn't mean to sound R-sey.

Here's a newer review from s7yler- he says the phone is "close to Stock Android".

And another one (this reviewer, TechLineHD, says GPS is fine , sy7ler in the Youtube clip above, wasn't that impressed. Though TechLineHD didn't like the position of the buttons - on the left of the phone - and said the buttons on his review model rattled.
He also hated the Bokeh effect and suggests the extra lens just creates a fake "blurred circle" in photos, though, strangely, I've not seen other reviewers comment on this yet):
