Ulefone ask fans for software optimisation tips


ulefone paris review

Ulefone Paris owners are asked to give their tips and suggestions to improve the software for the phone in a bid to improve user experience.

Ulefone launched the 5-inch Ulefone Paris earlier this month and chose the phone to be the first to come with Ulefone’s own U-Launcher, the companies first attempt to add their own touches to an Android ROM.

Following on from this, Ulefone are now asking fans for their ideas to help improve their Paris ROM, the best ideas could find their way in to an update coming later in the year. If the chance of a better ROM for your phone wasn’t appealing enough then Ulefone will offer tempered screen protectors for the 10 best ideas.

For more details head over to the Ulefone website.

    efficient energy consumption ,no overheating,fluent operation, no lost signals on wifi,gps,network , no cutting the cpu speed when the battery is low (be touch 2) ,that will be a start

    Improve the damn camera software! It’s so bad..

      A lot of issues can be solved by just switching out the camera app, try Open Camera on the play store. But software can only do so much if Ulefone continues to use cheap lenses.

        yeah i’ve tried a handful of different camera apps but all result in the same crappy photos. of all the things for Ulefone to skimp out on, camera should definitely not have been one of them.

          The problem is mostly with the camera itself then, a lot of these companies will advertise a Sony or Samsung sensor but then they will use the cheapest possible lens. Without a good lens that good sensor is useless.

    I have had a Ulefone Paris for a few weeks now and there are a few things that are bugging me and could be better in future models. For 1 thing (regarding many phones nowadays) they are becoming too big. I see the new Ulefone vienna and Power are 5.5″. Way too big in my opinion. I think 5 ” is as big as I could buy therefore i wouldn’t even consider the other Ulefone handsets. 4,5″ is optimal. Now for the issues I have with the Paris X. Firstly it takes ages to charge, like 17 hours or something. Also everytime I am in the camera app it is hard to hold the phone without the app closing. Its too easy to touch one of the buttons close to the edge and have it close on you just as you are wanting to take a photo. It gets hot. Start up is SLOW!!!!! I also find if i don’t shut it down properly when you start it up it tells me ‘optimising apps’. It SLOWLY runs through all 127 apps on my phone and ‘optimises’ them before the user interface will start. It happened today and it took about 20 minutes before I could use the phone again. This is crazy, never had anything like this before on other phones….cheap chinese phone included. Also if the phone rings in my pocket and I touch the screen when trying to take it out…which is easy to do, the phonemes out of the call screen and into the lock screen. You then have to unlock the phone and go through number of presses in order to get back to the call screen. This is stupid, annoying and unnecessary. Normally by the time i do all that the phone has stopped ringing and I’ve missed the call. I also think that as soon as you press the side button to light up the screen it should bring up the dots for your security code (pattern) directly rather than having to swipe up to unlock. This just adds another unnecessary step you have to do overtime you want to use your phone which is a lot of unnecessary steps over time.

    The things combined would make me not buy another Ulefone product unless I hear reviews that these have been addressed. Some, if not all of these things are just stupid and could easily be avoided.

    I have also had problems getting 3g despite having mobile data turned on. Sometimes i get it and sometimes I don’t. However I am away in Dubai atm on hols and perhaps part of the 3g issue has to do with me being abroad and my network (giff gaff). So until I get back home to the UK I wont knock it too hard on that front yet.
