Okay, this the new Ulefone power 3s and not power 3. Since the battery on Ulefone was not big enough, they decided to make it even bigger from 6080 to 6350mAH. The camera is slightly worse off but the rest is very similar. A good price tag for this spec. This will Oreo Android 8.1 update as well.

There is no NFC on either of these models, save anyone asking.

Think the 3s ((this one)) has got AC dual band wifi, the 3 did not.

This has ddr3 memory, the 3 had ddr4.

This has a full 8 core cpu ((6763)) where as the 3 had 8 core, but 4 big, 4 little ((6763t))

Not too sure how much difference the extra 270mAh on this model will make, but a big
bonus is the t880 gpu vs the older mali g71, with oreo 8.1 this should fly

specs look good, but is it any good in real life?
It's great when it comes to specs and it will perform very good as well. It doesn't look that good to me tho, quite big, thick and heavy but I understand it has to be because of the camera. You cannot ask for more for this price

This Chinese fhone is good for specifications and money but in real life camera, photo quality and video are not good at all, I have mi mix it is awful,even Samsung Galaxy s3 camera is better than it, even you cannot compare mi Mix and lg g4 camera, even mi mix uses Sony sensor but still it is awful, if you are not interested in taking photos or record video it is great phone,
I'm a Power 2 user and while the phone and battery are great, I can't say the same for updates from Ulefone. I've had 1 update since I bought last August. My Power 2 has a Bluetooth issue that I think could be resolved in an update. I've noticed this with many Chinese brands. I had an Elephone before this, again only 1 update in 2 years. They like to ship these phones out, fix as many issues in the one update and then ditch support and move onto the next phone.

I'm not disappointed with my Power 2. It's ran everything I've thrown at it. Despite the small Bluetooth issue (and I use a Bluetooth headset every day), it's great value for money. I'll hopefully get 2 years out of the phone, maybe more with the 3 day battery (although I still charge every night) but I think my next phone will be a Xaomi which I think gets regular updates to fix issues.
bought a ulefone power a year ago, would not buy another again. From day one it it would go into silent mode so i would not hear it when people were ringing. I had to restart and then it was ok for a bit. The charger stopped working and now takes all night to charge to 80%.

I've had similar problems, and the WiFi drops out as often as the Bluetooth. They are useless with updates, constantly blaming Google. I'll pay more for a reputable brand next time that releases more than 1 update for the entire lifetime of the phone.
I've had the Ulefone Power for over two years and it has been fantastic. Battery still holds power for two days without the need to charge and it has run everything smoothly. I bought from Gearbest and would seriously consider buying another one of these phones but my current one is still going strong!.
Has anyone ever got caught in customs when selecting free (cheap and slowest) delivery?
I can't think of anyone who has complained about customs when selecting free delivery. please share your experience.

Couple of weeks, maybe 3 weeks is pretty normal, be it Aliexpress, gearbest or banggood.
The battery length is my main factor in getting a phone; that and toughness. Armour 2 and Power 2 owner
The Ulefone T1 was bought from the ‘Official Ulefone Store’ on Aliexpress for its seemingly impressive specs. However theapps I regularly used never utilised the full capabilities - the phone reported that on average it only used 2-3 GB of its 6 GB available RAM. I am not convinced this amount of RAM or number of processing cores (8) is required for the average user.


Unfortunately after only 4 months use (in the included protective case) I had to put the offered one year warranty to the test when the screen stopped lighting up.

The phone was securely packaged and posted from the UK on 29th December and received in China on the 16th January. I asked for updates several times over the next few weeks as it would take only seconds for somebody to switch the phone on and see that it was in perfect condition externally but didn’t light up.


On 18th January I was informedthat as Chinese New Year was only a month away that staff were very busy and I was asked to be patient.

On 18th February I was informed that Chinese New Year had just passed and staff were very busy and I was asked to be patient.

On 14th March they sent me pictures to show a badly damaged phone with the screen coming apart from the body of the phone and severe scratches and dents around the metal edging. This was not my phone as it was when it was sent back, but how could I prove this - I had neglected to take pictures of the condition of the phone as I was preparing it to be sent off.


I contacted my credit card provider to try and make a claim under Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act which means that the credit card company is jointly liable for any breach of contract or misrepresentation by the retailer. But I learnt that as I had paid Aliexpress who then paid the retailer then there was no debtor/creditor relationship and the Consumer Credit Act didn’t cover me. Apparently the same problem arises with the likes of Amazon Marketplace. It was also too late to request a charge-back.


On sending the phone away (even naively thinking that it may take a couple of weeks to get the repaired phone back)- I still had to buy a replacement to use in the interim, who could be without a phone for weeks these days ?


I tried to go back through Aliexpress to open a ‘dispute’ but was now outside the allowed time to do so and this proved fruitless.


I would offer some advice as a result of my experiences :

If you must have a Ulefone phone, these can be bought from a UK seller at a premium - the UK sellers such as Amazon will offer a replacement as they are obliged to under the Sale of Goods Act. Alternatively, there are plenty of phones that can be bought in the UK for a similar price with slightly less impressive specs but that come with a usable warranty. I bought a Huawei p8 lite from Carphone Warehouse for a similar price which came with the reassurance that if it proves to be faulty like the Ulefone, it will be replaced or repaired within hours or days.


Until a more suitable arrangement is in place to deal with faulty products this phone is not suitable to be sold in the UK via AliExpress. I would advise taking the protection of buying locally - either a lower spec phone for the same price or this phone at the increased local price. Do not buy direct from China and expect to be treated fairly.
I have a similar problem with AliExpress in that they keep telling me they will give me a refund ans to give them about 10 days to send the refund but it never comes, so I never buy big price items from them anymore, and would give this advice to anyone.
