Today I am going to review a smartphone from an amazon seller Bsyexcellent selling various items from brands like Ulefone and Outad  The design of the phone is solid and looks like it holds up to water and drops the phone costs about $219.99 USD and comes with Free Shipping if brought on a PRIME listing as there are other listings for the same phone so feel free to check out Amazon   So not bad for the price but how does it perform? That’s what this review intends to show you, so read on….

The Review:

OK I know what you might be saying “But David my phone already has a nice water proof case” well that might be nice and works well for you but it does add to making heat and bulk for your device where is this is a custom made shell for the phone designed to not to make the phone sweat or overheat besides the normal overheating that would occur would over use in most electronics

My experience as I said in the video below is very clear I liked this phone a lot which is saying something from the other chinese companies that made phones I’ve reviewed, I’ve used this phone longer and even though I did like that Padgeme phone last year the sim card slot didn’t work out after the review but the rest of the phone is ok, But this phone was super easy unscrew the back slot put your sim card(s) in and a micro sd card if you want I went a few weeks without and still even though I have one in haven’t used it since the storage is fairing quite well,  the battery is ok but I would still carry a powerbank with you just in case since any smartphone or at least from my experience Android doesn’t last forever. One thing I do want to point out that no other chinese phone has on the ARMOR is the smooth no lag of the OS I’m not usually for Android but I like Marshmallow  and haven’t used my iPhone for since May this year crazy right?

This phone comes with a special charging cable where the micro usb end is slightly longer and where most other micro usb cables won’t work because of plastic shell so if you want to use a micro usb hub for a flash drive and mouse it’s a NO GO , also there is  usb power adaptor,a headphone adaptor which again you will need unless you use bluetooth headphones/speaker,an instruction booklet and quick start guide.This phone comes with one battery and I would recommend to carry a powerbank and don’t leave the house without the special cable When tested this I only charged it maybe once while I was out with the powerbank when I am at home on wifi  the phone carries better on battery times which as you know isn’t that bad for a chinese android phone this phone can also be used to crack chestnuts as you see in the video below. I don’t recommend doing that but heywhat a neat feature HEY try doing that with your iPhone

The camera was surprising really good as well I recorded a few clips and one of them was a short review for my personal youtube channel the audio wasn’t bad and I don’t want to say it was better then my Canon T5i but if I was using just my phone it’s perfect I would connect Amazon Drive so you can have your photos and videos automatically uploaded for you. When I snapped a few photos I was amazed I used the HDR setting and WOW look at these

 

Now I played one of my favorite games for both iOS and Android Fruit Ninja  this is a good game to test the lag and responsiveness of the phone and it did good having a yuck provided screen protector has it’s disadvantages and advantages which I don’t have to go into those since I’m sure you might know those reasons already  I’ve always had some lag with my devices even my Macbook before the SSD install  but this I’ve yet to have any lag  even when I turn it on and it loads up rather quick better than my iPhone or IPad  The Graphics for this phone were quite good too   I didn’t see any pixels as you would with some cheap tablets or phones, Now for the protection of this cool device No cases needed so you are saving some money there put that extra money towards some charging cables like these

Anyways I even had friends help test this phone out and they liked it took me some time to grab it out of their hands but they said “David it’s raining out and you’re on your phone” I said “yes, yes I am” This phone puts you at ease if you drop or fall into random rain storm it’s also a very easy phone to use since it has actual buttons and makes  getting to know a phone simple no matter the app
