Looks like this chrismas season is going to be flooded with smartphones and the Chinese companies are not going to be left out. The name Ulefone may not be too familiar to most smartphone users especially outside China. However, the company is popular in China and known for it’s midrange low budget devices. Nothing fancy ! The Ulefone Armor 6 is a midrange device just like all it’s predecessors but the main features of this phone is it’s build. A very solid build that is water resistant, dust resistant, and also capable of handling drops. According to the company, this smartphone can be submerged 2 meters under water for up to 2 hours.

Ulefone Armor 6 design and display
The smartphone comes in two color variants, black and red. It has a solid build which is typical of a rugged phone but the bezels are not too thick. I really love the appearance of this smartphone and yes, it has a big notch at the top. The notch houses the selfie camera and speaker. The display of the Ulefone Armor 2 is a big 6.2-inch full HD+ (2246 x 1080) display (with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 protection).
Ulefone Armor 6 chipset and memory
Fueling this rugged beast is a MediaTek’s Helio P60 64-bit octa-core processor which is not bad for a smartphone of it’s class. It has 6GB RAM and 128GB inbuilt storage capacity. It might also interest you to know it supports external expandable storage of up to 256GB via a microSD card. Again for a midrange, low budget smartphone, I’d say this is a steal.
