Since performance issues have been resolved in the smartphone market, manufacturers focus on other parts of a device to attract more customers. With mobile SoCs being more powerful than ever even in the entry-level segment and display quality is good in most cases, the next target is battery and camera performance. Ulefone choice to put a 13,000mAh battery in the Power 5 is right on the spot, but let’s see how they did in the camera department.
Taking into consideration that this is an official video coming from the company itself, we can only partially judge the quality. So, as seen in the video, the camera performs well in most situations, not reaching the top flagship (that cost 3 times more though). Especially the night shots look impressive and here’s where OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) steps in. The same goes for the video recording that is very smooth with only a few bumps here and there being noticed. Also, the bokeh effect support looks pretty solid.
Ulefone Power 5 features the MT6763 SoC accompanied by 6GB of RAM and 64GB of interal storage. Despite the fact that the battery is huge, it also sports 10W wireless charging although it should take a long time to fully charge the device. Lastly, there is a side-mounted fingerprint sensor like in Sony smartphones, a 6″ display, and Android 8.1 Oreo. Currently, the Power 5 is on offer for just $279 and you can get it here.
