The case of the smartphone is made of metal. The back cover of the smartphone is decorated with plastic, which mimics the skin.

The main part of the front surface takes a 6-inch screen. It has an aspect ratio of 18: 9 and rounded corners. Above the display, there is a dual front-facing camera, a flash, a light sensor, and a telephone speaker.

On the right side of the manufacturer placed the power button, volume rocker, as well as an additional function button. When you press it once, the camera starts up, and a long press – the voice recorder. In addition, a fingerprint scanner is located here. It is located right under the thumb of the right hand. After some period of habituation, it turns out to be even more convenient than the usual placement of the scanner on the rear panel. There are no complaints about the quality of recognition.

Ulefone Power 5s: Screen

The screen in Ulefone Power 5s uses a 6-inch matrix with a resolution of (FHD+) 2160 × 1080 pixels. The image is so detailed that even at close range, individual pixels cannot be distinguished. Badges and fonts look great.

The colors on the screen are displayed naturally, there is no color imbalance. Technology Miravision, unfortunately, is not supported, so that fans will have to adjust everything for themselves to get used to the default settings. However, we do not think that someone will suffer much about this since the screen of the smartphone demonstrates an excellent default image.

The brightness level is adjustable over a wide range. Its upper value is enough for almost all situations, except maybe staying on the beach in direct sunlight. The lower brightness threshold allows you to comfortably use your smartphone in low light conditions, especially if you additionally activate the built-in reading mode.

Ulefone Power 5s: Sound

About the external speaker, we cannot say anything bad. As well as good, however, too. He is, he works loudly enough, but the sound of special pleasure does not deliver. But the sound in the headphones seemed very good. Only the lack of a 3.5mm jack for wired headsets is frustrating.

However, the test programs and our tests suggest that there are actually only two cameras, and additional sensors in the front and behind are either completely absent or have no effect on the shooting.

As for the work of the main camera, it fully corresponds to the price of the device. In bright sunlight, the photos are wonderful. But as soon as the star starts to sit down, the quality is immediately reduced. The shadows become too deep, the dynamic range narrows, and the colors look too saturated.

Under ideal shooting conditions and the patience of the photographer with the help of this smartphone, it is quite possible to get good photos. But if you just want to press a button, and all other actions to entrust cool optics and smart software algorithms, then look for something more expensive.
