Review of Ulefone Vienna.

Ulefone Vienna was placed in my demand-list to buy when its cost comes down under 130 USD. And it was able to buy in 120 USD in a month ago. It delivered me with DHL from China while only a week.

Vienna was designed to perfect experience to listening music with professional level DAC as manufacturer description with FHD resolution in 5.5″ IPS display – I expected more better than LG G3, and it is exactly matched for me.

Bundled clear TPU case helped me carrying for while, and easily clean out any stains. But back-butt placed speaker gave to me bad position to listening any sound and any others. But it could be accept by price because its loud level is much bigger than any other android budget phones.

Camera, it is like any others, little bit better, maybe. But it could not be expect excellent picture on evening to night, or dark places. Just a same like most of Chineses budget phones.

Fingerprint scanner works well, better than modern budget phones price around 100 USD. It could be sens my finger in any degree like iPhone or Xiaomi. But ratio of corretly works not much better than as I expected.

Hardware touching area is my one of loved feature, it may much better than any software navi. It will be better if it has illuminations like small LED lights on back side, but there’s nothing like my hopes.

One more special feature, left side a button is useful or an obstacle as who using this, I couldn’t find how it be turned off but works too well. I thought it will better if it has any bumps around button to press not so easily. But it will be pleased by using TPU case for protect pressing button so easily.

Software – OS was upgraded to 6.0 with OTA thru WiFi easily. I could upgrade OS and testing well, but many preinstalled apps are also like previous Ulefone models.

So I need replace recovery partition to adjusting my app conditions with TWRP and my customized zip files. Then, it works so perfectly. Much longer battery life and nothing to annoying.

Vienna became to lowest price in a year, It should be good choice to listening music without external amp for your ( or my ) headphones what has high resistance.

Here I prepared to using some zip files for customized TWRP recovery.

And recommend install Andoird camera sound patch 2 from my articles, it could help your too loud shutter sound becomes none.

And one more, default launcher3 may not good for 5.5″ screen size, recommend to use NovaLauncher or other for your good experience.
