It is being continued from my previous preparation article.
Ulefone Paris ( rest is “U-Paris” ) is an economic smartphone from China as looks like Apple iPhone6 series. Main CPU is Mediatek MT6753 64bit 1.3GHz – 8 cores ARM Cortex-A53.
Ulefone Paris Antutu info&score
Installed OS is AOSP based 64bit build of Android 5.1. Ulefone didn’t customized for many functions, so I loved this less-customized OS.
Internal NAND flash used for Samsung 16GB eMMC that was manufactured at August, 2015. So its writing speed is not so fast as modern fastest products. (See below, writing speed is 11.93MB/sec)
I recommend install fastest external micro SDXC for use it as ‘sdcard0’ for install apps as like me. I was installed fastest MLC UHS-1 supported microSDXC for both of like and performance.
Latest OTA was published in 16, Nov. 2015 and it makes U-Paris performance for better. So I could it checked how is it gone for faster.
And battery life has little bit shorter than before after latest OTA update. I think it is acceptable for performance, actually I think most people could not sens how it been shorter because U-Paris has not big battery.
I love some special functions for make it difference between other Chinese enconomic smartphone is like this. I could kill all running apps on multi-tasking screen by one touch for “Remove All”.
It make U-Paris to runs in good performanced and I could control app state in easy way. And changing font is basically possible for default setting app.
I just select my styled font and download it then use it. That’s all for simply changing way. Sure it is not for all languages, sadly seems to applied in English based languages.
U-Paris has also need some works for disable useless apps like these:
And I remove some widgets like “Auto Launching Widget”. This widget automatically launch newly installed app, but I removed it.
Battery like is seems to normal as like most of Android smartphone what capacity has similar to 2200mAh.
You could be buy new battery for replace exhausted one for new, or using external charging battery pack as like me. It’s all up to your choice, but I strongly recommend use after choice for protect your finger nails. U-Paris had really strong battery cover back and it makes your nails be destroyed if you try open back in bare condition.
U-Paris also has negative issues.
- WiFi supports only for 2.4GHz
- No NFC.
- No HotKnot.
- Limited accessaries.
- Little bit slow charging speed ( accepts 0.9~1 Amperes for USB charging )
Among them, limited supporting for 2.4GHz WiFi is makes people’s choice for little bit narrow. Some place need 5GHz WiFi for stable web surfing, but it doesn’t make comfort seat.
U-Paris is really nice economical smartphone for price of 120 to 150 USD from China. Enough performance will helps your smart life, and low price also make other chances for saving money.
