▽ The charger & real mAh tested here:

The Ulefone Paris comes with a metal, thin and light design that is very similar to Apple's iPhone 6 / iPhone 6S design language.

The screen measures 5 inches and comes with a fitting 1280*720 resolution. The specs and resolution might not be top notch, but it is ideal for such a small screen and the viewing experience will not be impacted. This model is very good value for money!

Ulefone's next 5-inch device will be called “Paris”

Days ago Ulefone asked their users on Facebook to help name their next 5-inch device between Ulefone Lite and Air. But a banner appeared yesterday on their official site showing that there will come a new phone named Ulefone Paris. The company confirmed that the two actions referred to the same device.

It’s not clear why the naming should change all in a sudden. But it seems to us that the company wants to add the phone some flavor of art derived from the New Wave. The banner reveals the launch time will be next month and the place, well, I don’t think will really be under the Eiffel tower.

According to early news, the specs of Ulefone Paris will include 5-inch HD display, and MTK6753 chipset. But it’s not sure if there will be change on these features, too.

Totally, the next 1 month or so, it is expected to see 3 new products from Ulefone, including the 6200mAh-battery device Ulefone Power and the Smartwatch Ulefone Uwear, beside the Ulefone Paris as before mentioned.

Ulefone Paris Design Revealed: A hybrid of iPhone 6 and Meizu MX4

I got some real photos of the Ulefone Paris, which shows that the 5-inch Ulefone device will borrow the design of both iPhone 6 and Meizu MX4.

Or you can say it is a mini Ulefone Be Touch 2 just with the iPhone-6-particular push home button changed into a touch button as also seen on the Meizu MX4 and M1 Note. The circular button will also have light as on the Meizu phones when it is touched. And there will actually be capacitive menu and back buttons with light, left and right to the home key but they are invisible when not used.

The Ulefone Paris also inherited the 2.5D glass and metal frame from Ulefone Be Touch and Be Touch 2. And the general design is not very different, just smaller, and maybe thinner.

Ulefone believes the size of 5-inch best balances between the eyes, which favor a big display, and the hands, which favor small for comfortable handle. To spread their philosophy, the company even made a video where Ulefone Paris was placed at the balance point of a scale among bigger and smaller phones. Indeed, 5-inch phones will be easier to handle than 5.5 or bigger ones and still represent a big market where users weigh one-hand operability over visual joy.

I prefer 5". Almost all Chinese manufacturers continually release the 5.5" ones. Apparently Ulefone find another way out.
What's more, the 129.99 USD price is reasonable.

@s7yler I suggest providing Ulefone with your opinions on how to optimise and refine the Paris's software here:

Battery is good
I've been worried about battery life since it's only 2250mAh, but it is not a problem in real world. The test by the S7yler shows that Ulefone has been used a better battery. But 50mAh does not explain the issue. I think Paris is well optmized in energe enfficiency.

Olefin paris
It is a good average phone

Not the top market one but it still makes its job and is very nice.

I made a back cover look alike carbon fibre using a spare vinyl I had at home
