Hello readers, in this article you will get to know about an amazing smartphone from Ulefone that’s great as Ulefone Be Pro. There’s a possible reason to be termed as Ulefone be “touch”. And you will get to know about that as you know more about its features, specifications and price.

Here the smartphone resembles a few specification as the Galaxy S6. So, I thought it would be better to call it as the Mini alternative to Galaxy S6 for the users who are a bit tight on their wallets and want a powerful and a good quality smartphone in the mid-range price.

This device comes with a price tag of $219.99/14,000 INR (nearly). The smartphone market is gradually getting heated up with the mid-range devices which are really impressive, acting as an alternative to big flagship devices.

Design & Build Quality

It’s thickness really impressed me. It’s slimmer than Huawei Mate 7 and Meizu MX4 Pro. The body is made up of aluminum-magnesium alloy metal. So, it is a sturdy structure which is absolutely a bit tough.
The back cover texture is really great to make it convenient to handle with ease.

The Software

It runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop. Well, the manufacturer has not ripped off the transparent status bar. And that’s a good news because having Lollipop without a transparent status bar is just annoying. Micromax, an Indian smartphone giant stripped off the said feature on an update for Micromax Unite 2 (most selling low-budget smartphone in India). And that’s really annoying. Ulefone has cared enough not to make huge customizations in the Ulefone be touch UI. But there’s a small downside in it. Few icons might look old, as you can observe it in the featured image. That’s the messaging and android browser icon.

The Display

It’s a big guy here which sports a 5.5 inch 2.5D Arc screen. The Arc screen is generally considered to be shatterproof and that’s nice to hear. Also, this display comes with a Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Being an Arc screen, you can view the screen just about any angle. It’s an HD screen having a 1280×720 resolution. Being an IPS technology screen, it would provide sharper images.

The Performance

Nowadays major mid-range devices come with a 64-bit processor. And, this one’s too. It has got an Octa-Core 1.7 GHz MediaTek processor (MTK6752) along with a GPU being Mali760. It comes with 3 Gigs of RAM along with a 16 GB ROM. It supports expandable storage up to 64 GB. Its GPU is the same as that of Samsung Galaxy S6. And that somewhat makes it a mini alternative for budget conscious users. And for a wider knowledge you should know that the MTK6752 is better than the Snapdragon 615. So, you can expect an awesome performance on this device. To be precise, it may perform better than the Oppo R7 and Micromax Yu Yureka. Using MediaTek chips help manufacturers sell their devices at low cost. And that’s the truth, but the performance doesn’t get affected according to my experience. To be honest, it’s the best alternative for users who want nearly the same performance with a low-budget price.
