Ulefone Metal’s GPS functionality caught on video

Many of the phone users are valuing the correct and precise GPS performance quite highly and it doesn’t matter if they use it just hiking, riding a bike or for the car navigation. It should just work as advertised and without issues.

The new Ulefone Metal is sporting a full metal body and phones with such design and build can something struggle with the GPS reception. But the Ulefone engineers are of course aware of the possible problem so the phone has the plastic stripes over the antennas.

And to document the proper and precise GPS functionality of the Ulefone Metal we have a video for you today showing the ride through the chinese Shenzhen. Seems like the phone is working quite fine even in this matter and the guys seem pretty happy with the Google Maps performance and sensitivity.

Check out the following video to learn more about that.

    Check out the video at 1080p. These frauds are obviously amateurs.

    – Wi-Fi is on
    – A sim is inserted
    – Bluetooth is also on
    – Google Maps ONLINE! (WTF!)

    The GPS mode is likely set to High Accuracy – the mode in which network assists are provided. Tell these frauds to test in Device Only mode with the following constraints:

    – No sim in device
    – All connectivity off (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Mobile Data)
    – GPS history cleared (Last lock etc., lots of apps available to do this)
    – aGPS reset (catalog totally removed)
    – Any offline map with the location’s map pre-downloaded (e.g. Sygic / MapsMe)
    – Cold boot under these circumstances INSIDE car, launch offline maps

    Good luck getting a lock until next year. Stupid Chinese MTK frauds.

    GPS probably eats a lot of battery, right?
