The Pulid F19+ is another of the new breed of ‘stylish’ Chinese phones which attempt to be good looking, great performers with a thin body. Pulid haven’t gone to quite the same extremes as other manufactures as the F19+ measures 7.85mm, still a good 2+mm more than the Gionee Elife S5.5, and that extra couple of mm means the additional of NFC.
As with phones of a similar price, the Pulid F19+ is based around a 1.7Ghz octacore MT6592 processor, with the right amount of RAM (2GB) and FHD 1920 x 1080 5-inch display. As well as NFC, Pulid have also squeezed in wireless charging, 2000mAh battery, 5 mega-pixel front camera and 13 mega-pixel F2.0 aperture main camera.
Judging by the level of hardware, Pulid are hoping to take on similar phones such as the JiaYu S2, but while the F19+ is on par in the hardware stakes it looses out slightly in size with full measurements coming in at 143.1 x 70.8 x 7.85mm compared to the S2’s 139 x 67.5 x 6mm.
Both the Pulid F19+ and JiaYu S2 look like great octacore smartphones, but which would you choose?
