The Ulefone Armor 5 is a smart phone based on years of rugged design, with large batteries compressed into devices with different looks and new materials. Of course, not all things about this Android 8.1 Oreo device are perfect, whether it’s a small problem with camera software or battery life. However, it shines among many competitors, and each competitor competes for a perfect example of an almost unbreakable hardware construction at the end of the mid-term budget. Comfortable to hold and comfortable, with a reasonable viewing panel, advanced protection on the top, no slowdown after work.

It is extruded into a 228 gram 158.3 x 76 x 12.6 mm frame with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on the front, acrylic composite on the back and IP68 on the edge. According to the company, the materials and design used make the equipment unique in style, while allowing the equipment to be used under concrete for up to 1 hour to about 5 feet of water or 3.2 to 24 hours. A 13 megapixel interpolated front-facing camera with an aperture set to f / 2.4 to read the face at 512 positions, and the fingerprint scanner is located below the dual camera and behind the upper left corner of the speaker. The USB-C 2.0 charging port with a 5V / 2A rating on the bottom edge is used for backfeeding and quickly charging the 5,000 mAh battery. 10W Qi fast charging is also part of this package. At the same time, the left and top sides accommodate dual micro SD SD card drawers and LTE nano SIM headphone jacks, respectively.

Also included is a plastic lever that allows the user to access the port as they are covered by a thick silicone insert and it can be very painful to use only the nail. Finally, of course, include warranty cards and user manuals to help newbies can be sturdy phones or Android devices.
In terms of design, Ulefone’s latest rugged phone is not the thinnest device on the market. This is not a problem because it is not intentional. Rather, it is a device that means protection that can accomplish the task of a smartphone in difficult conditions or in a dirty work environment. Insert a silicone sleeve around each port and edge to provide adequate protection against dust and water. However, due to the high reflectivity and slight acrylicity on the back side, it also has a unique and satisfying aesthetic appeal. Our test unit is orange-black with a thin orange line on the edges. The speaker’s orange border and the top and bottom port covers further emphasize this.
At the same time, the buttons are not only clicks, but also different textures. The top of the power button means that it is easy to find through the glove even through the glove. These buttons are securely placed in this design and the ports are very comfortable and do not squeeze or loosen them. The overall impression is that, with the exception of most typical Otterbox or similar protective boxes, the phone can withstand considerable abuse without sacrificing design. There is no slippage at all. Considering the ruggedness used here, it is impressive that Armor 5 maintains a relatively good look through the company’s design language.
