Ulefone Be Touch Hands on and first impressions


ulefone be touch hands on

We’ve been itching to get our hands on one of the latest Chinese flagship devices, and the first to arrive at the office is the latst Ulefone Be Touch from Ulefone.

At the time of writing there were 3 Mediatek phones that we really cannot wait to try. They are the Elephone P7000, Mlais M7 and the Ulefone Be Touch, well we can now finally scratch the Be Touch off our list!

Ulefone were originally meant to launch their new phone at MWC. At the time the phone was called the Dare N1, but for whatever reason the launch was delayed and the name changed to the Ulefone Be Touch.

Like similar flaghship phones, the Ulefone Be Touch’s main features are a fingerprint scanner for security, 5.5-inch display, 3GB RAM, 64bit Mediatek MT6752 processor and 13 mega-pixel main camera. Look a little closer and you will find the Be Touch packs a Sony IMX214 camera (according to specs), a 2.5D display, dual LED flash and stock Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.

Comapred to the Elephone P700o the Be Touch has a smaller 2550mAh battery, but it also has a lower resolution 720p display which will hopefully mean there is enough juice to get you through the day without whipping out the fast charger.

Opening the box and first impressions are pretty good. The 2.5D display add a touch of class to the phone and meets the iPhone/Meizu-esque alloy chassis with a smooth transition. The phone feels exceptionally well made, and comfortable if a little longer than other 5.5-inch phones on the market.

Ulefone Be Touch Hands on First Impressions

So far in our brief time with the phone we are impressed with the clarity of the screen, the speed and stability of the stock Android OS running on that 64bit chip and the accuracy of the TouchID style finger print scanner.

Everything we have tried so far works as it should, but so far the only area we feel that needs to be impved is camera quality. The camera is fast and take photos with nice depth but they are rather grainy when you zoom in.

Full Ulefone Be Touch review will be up by next weekend.

    Andi! Does the Be Touch 720p display really compare with most current 1080p displays?

    I whipped out the old Samsung galaxy note with a 5.3″ 1280×800 display to compare with my current Ulefone U7 1920×1200 7″ display and the difference was NIGHT AND DAY. I feel like I could NEVER go back to 720p (or less than 1080p)…… Browsing the web and reading text looks so pixelated in 720 HD (compared to 1080p) and it really turns me off, especially after using crispy 1080p for the past couple years.

    Unless Ulefone releases a full HD 1080p version of the Be Touch (and soon), the Elephone P7000 will most likely be my preferred china phone “flagship”.

    Let us know your thoughts. Thanks Andi!

      Updating this comment:
      Actually after replying I did put the Be Touch side by side with the Asus Zenfone 2. There is a notable difference in clarity. I think it is something I can live with, but the clarity of 1080 is preferable.

    The bezel below the screen is a fuckin tragedy !!!!!!

      Personally bezels don’t bother me. They are one of the last things I even consider on a phone.

    Oh gosh, you put the camera sensor between parentheses because you think is bogus, God dammit

    Grainy photos makes it sound like they’ve used the same Chinese 13mp camera they always use.

    The touch ID on this model is really amazing. Andi, will you explore it more when doing some payment on Play Store?

      I believe it comes down to cost. I just don’t think they are able to bring out phones with very good camera performance at a low price. I guess you need to spend over $200 to to get a decent camera.

        Here is some camera samples from ulefans. Looks decent enough. http://www.ulefans.com/reviews/ulefone-be-touch-iphone6-plus-camera-comparison/

          You could always buy a refurbished LG G2, or Optimus G Pro, which both sell for less than $200 on Aliexpress. They both have good camera performance, with the G2 being the better of the two.

          They are both good phones, which are both receiving Lollipop OTA updates.

          • Muhammad Yasir
            May 18, 2015

            g2 is receiving Lollipop?!
            imma get me hands on one!

            • Roger
              May 18, 2015

              Yes, LG are providing excellent support for their phones. The G2 is a really nice phone, with high AnTuTu scores, and 2GB RAM.

              well thanks man!
              there’s this crazy trend in Pakistan where most smartphone virgins are going for REfurbished G2s for their 1st smartphones!
              i think i’ll join the party if the price is student-friendly :p

    For the people wanting to order it. Gearbest is advertising it on their homepage as a product that’s in stock but they actually do not have any stock. Trying to get my money back now and just warning other people about it.

    coolicool are the same, I ordered this fone on the 9th of may and ay the time they assured me it was in stock and would be posted within 3 business days

    well guess what

    still not shipped, apprently the supplier delivery is late and I am expected to get my phone some point by the end of the month

    I wish I hadnt paid for this phone because the elephone 7000 has full hd and a bigger battery and I would have chosen that instead

    You guys serious need to look at the weak performance of the elephone p7000 and the weak antutu scores? please stop hype up such a weak phone lol

    Had mine less than 24 hours and it’s not staying I won’t be ordering anymore to sell on, I’m really disappointed in this phone, the screen isn’t that good, on kitkat I could tweak the colours via the MiraVision settings but this has been removed with lollipop.
    First go with the camera indoors the quality was very poor, I had high hopes for this the phone but it’s a let down in your opinion the be pro is a better phone to me.
