Ulefone made the odd and unpopular decision to downgrade the latest Be Touch 3, now they are doing the same for the Ulefone Paris X which will see lower hardware at only a $10 saving.
With a name like the Ulefone Paris X, you would be forgiven for thinking that this is an updated version of the Ulefone Paris. Perhaps this new ‘X’ edition would get a FHD display, octacore chipset and more RAM? Those were my first thoughts too, but I was wrong.
The Ulefone Paris X is actually a new budget version of the Ulefone Paris, with largely the same hardware with only difference made to the chipset and the rear camera. The original Paris had a 1.3Ghz octa-core MT6753 where as the Paris X is 1.0Ghz quad-core, and the 13 mega-pixel OV sensor has now been downgraded to a Sony IMX166 8 mega-pixel.
Those few differences mean only a $10 difference in price between the current Ulefone Paris and the new Ulefone Paris X, and I’m not sure that’s a tempting enough saving to choose one over the other. What do you guys think?
