How’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow running on the Ulefone Vienna?


Ulefone Vienna has been a major success for the company so far and the first coming reviews are generally pretty positive, wait for our own coming in just a few days. The hyped Hi-Fi centered device is apparently delivering on its promise and that’s something we are always happy seeing.

The initial presale numbers are just underlining that, because just during the 12 April days the 120.000 available pieces just sold out. But Ulefone just can’t give up upon the customers after the release, they have to keep working on the software updates too and seems like they are doing just that, because the Android 6.0 major update should arrive next month.

The developers are still feverishly working on the proper optimalizations, but we have already a first glimpse into the world of Vienna with beta Marshmallow. The update is not yet in final form, but semi-stable and should bring better app management options, security and overall improvements for Wi-Fi and LTE speed.

Check out the video showing the Ulefone Vienna running Android 6.0.

    That’s a ridiculous gimmick.
    Play DSD music, and i’ll fully belive with my heart that it’s hi-fi, or stop talking about hi-fi.

      The phone can not have HiFi? You are a kind of enclosed living space? Do not you know China’s VIVO brand? It is very early HiFi mobile phone, even after HiFi chips are each handset should be equipped. As important as sound and image.

        Did i say a phone can’t be hi-fi?
        Do you know what hi-fi is?

        My request is simple, just play DSD music.
        If you don’t know, DSD is a hi-fi audio format. If it can’t played DSD music, then it’s not hi-fi device. So stop calling it hi-fi.

        So, who are the kind of enclosed living space?

          I’m perfectly okay with it playing flac.

            Lol…
            Even my 2009 nokia phone can play 24bit flac, and that’s not an hi-fi device at all.

              That’s the point I was making. Flaxcis lossless enough. The hardware is what makes a device hi fi. Not simply codecs

              That’s the point i was making.
              The point is, What is hi-fi?
              Looks like you were having a hardtime understanding it.

              Flac is indeed lossless, Lossless/hi-res ≠ hi-fi. They are basically express the same thing, though they have different definitions.

              That’s a distinction without a difference.

              Well, google is your friend.
              I suggest you start with Hi-fi, hi-res, flac, lossless, compression, dac, codec.
              Or you can go to whathifi, head-fi, wikipedia.

              Your words reflect your head.

              I know the meanings of all of those and the websites you recommended. You’re still splitting hairs.
