Full UNBOXING video
Camera & 3D Gaming Review
Full Complete IN-DEPTH Review
In this video I show you some Ulefone Power camera samples & a video clip (1:23). I also compare some few pictures with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (00:18), so you can get an idea about the quality. The original HQ pictures can be found here: http://mediafire.com/folder/96gyk9on...Camera_Samples

(1:57) Part two in the video is all about gaming on the Ulefone Power. I test 8 different light & heavy 3D games and show you how they perform on the phone. I test Real Racing 3, Need For Speed, Modern Combat 5, Asphalt 8 and others.

(12:13) Part three, I show you the AnTuTu score with AnTuTu version 6.0 and the very dimmed backlight in the touch buttons (12:20), close-up so you can see it.

Known problems so far? (24/1 2016)
Asphalt 8 is only running with software rendering. So far the only 3D game that has a problem with the phone. Other games like Modern Combat 5, Real Racing 3 or Dead Trigger 2 all run fine and fast.

ROM & Updates?
There are in fact some updates out, that can't be found via OTA Wireless Update on the phone.
The updated ROMs can be found on Needrom - just search for "Ulefone Power" on Needrom. I can not link directly to them here.

And the battery?
I have run a Geekbench 3 battery test (on screen time) on the device and got 20 hours, before it died, but unfortunately Geekbench 3 didn't allow me to upload the results. So it can not be found online. But expect 3-4 days good battery life with normal usage.

The Fast Charger can charge the phone from 0-100% in 120 minutes! (I checked it) that is really good.... the charger gives 1.66A output.

Regarding the battery mAh capacity:
I have measured the battery capacity mAh, you can have a look here: (to 5958mAh with a normal charger)
http://peecee.dk/uploads/012016/POWER-S7YLER.jpg

To that you probably need to subtract a bit still, as some will be lost. But seems to be legit.
I was not able to measure the correct capacity with the included fast charger, so I measured it while it just charged via a normal 5V 1A charger.

In real life, I have used it as daily driver, and I could go 3 1/2 day before I had to put it to the charger, so expect 3-4 days battery life. Depending on the usage.

Will this phone work in my country with my carrier?
I can't answer you on that, but you can check it on these 2 sites:

One simple question? Is it too heavy? (Tiring to hold while talking maybe?)

It is 196g - so you have to determine it yourself. For me it is okay, I have also seen phones up to 250g - and that's what I call heavy

Any idea about root, or rather, if Xposed + Gravity Box will work on this device?

Also, any ideas why Ulefone chose to implement 32 bit 5.1 instead of 64 bit even though the hardware clearly supports it?

And since I ran into that issue with the Cubot X15: Do widgets and background services like Whatsapp, Gmail etc continue working even after you close the apps and free up the RAM? (Especially noticable on a reboot.)

please wait my TWRP for modding purpose.. it's just ready, i need phone to test it..

Regarding Xposed, i don't know if it wuill work or not, this is the first thing i will check once i will have in my hand.

Regarding 32 bit OS.. it looks very strange.. never seen any MT6753 with 32Bit OS..

ROM?
Why are the chances of there being a BlissPop rom in the near future for the Ulefone Power.

no chances ... Bliss work only on very common devices and mainly on Qualcomm devices with source code available in github. . Ulefone don0t have chances in this way
