Ulefone BeTouch 2 in short supply


ulefone be touch 2

Ulefone have released news that demand for the Ulefone BeTouch 2 is out stripping supply.

Ulefone announced the Ulefone Be Touch 2 shortly after they launched the original Be Touch model. The Be Touch 2 uses the same push button fingerprint scanner and alloy chassis of the original with updated 1080 resolution display and slightly larger battery.

The company have today come forward to tell fans of the phone that demand of the device is outstripping supply of the phone, and that their factory is now working overtime to rectify the issue.

There is obviously a little disappointment with fans who are waiting for their Ulefone Be Touch 2 and so to appease customers Ulefone will refund those who are waiting for the phone $10 and offer a free tempered-glass screen protector if phones don’t arrive on time.

The Ulefone Be Touch 2 comes with 13 mega-pixel Sony IMX214 camera, 3GB RAM and 64bit MT6752 processor and has been on sale in “snap up” events for as little as $179.99.

        The rear cam is good, the front one is not. I have not enough time to test it well yet, but surely can say, I’m not satisfied at the moment. There are too many lags, poor wifi. I should flash new ROM I think. By the way, there is Android 5.0, and not a 5.1.

          i thought ulefone learned from what a DISASTER of a phone the Be Touch 1 was !
          but… i guess old habits die hard :/

          I am really happy with my Be Touch 2. I am not experiencing the same issues you are. Mine says Android 5.1 in ‘About Phone’. What build are you on? I have 2_20150618.

            Anyone can write anything in “About Phone” section. You should look for your API (SDK) version. If it is 21, it’s Android 5.0. I have the same build as you.
            You can find it in AnTuTu Benchmark/Info – look for “SDK version”

              I think that camera and the ui was smoother with 18th June firmware than the 2nd July firmware.

        I wrote to their manager and ask for compensation, he told me go to a store, which I bought the phone in. Also, he told they investigate this moment now, and publicate the results on their facebook group.

    At least they are being honest and upfront about the delays. To exceed demand is something very difficult to adjust to..

    One question I have here, if you were going to flash, which ROM would you go to. MIUI or CM and why? I don’t know either ROMs and would be interested to hear some feedback…

      yeah, i will either receive my phone before the end of month, or get USD10 refund plus the protector. Not bad, not bad at all.

    Hi there,
    Anyone knows where to buy this in China ?
    I’m surprised there’s only a few sellers on taobao and all of them sold between 0 and 2.
    Is this oriented to international only ?
    Or does it has a different Chinese name ?
    Thanks

      There is no market for this sub-brands at this time in china,the other day had a chat with a chinese person who didn’t understand why we don’t just buy samy or apple

    kudos to the manufacturer who at least fronts up to keep customers in the loop. Unlike Elephone who stay silent.
