Last week we wrote about the Ulefone T2, a smartphone that the company advertises as a “high-end flaghsip”, but fails to impress spec wise. Today, the company started pre-sale for their new smartphone and the price is greater than expected. It will be sold for $269.99, a steep price for a B-Brand smartphone with mediocre specifications.
The Ulefone T2 comes with a Helio P70 chipset, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The chipset is a mid-range one that, even though offers decent performance, it is not worth a $270 price in my opinion. Maybe this price would have been acceptable if the phone would have offered a good camera experience, but in a year where even sub-$250 phones came with 48MP main cameras, the Ulefone T2 dissapoints with it’s dual 16MP + 8MP cameras.
The screen is big, having 6.7″ display with FullHD+ resolution (1080×2280). Sadly it is a normal LCD display (made by Sharp) and not an AMOLED one, something that most high-end smartphones offer. In all fairness, none of those devices are at this price, but they do offer better specs. Furthermore, the screen has a big notch on top making it feel a bit outdated from the start. The notch holds the normal sensors found on a smartphone and an 8MP selfie camera.
Not everything is bad for the Ulefone T2. THe phone does offer great connectivity options, having a dual-4G SIM slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC (that can be used for payments), wireless charging and a microSD card slot that can accept cards up to 256GB. Still, it is only marginally better than most mid-range devices and does not really compensate for the high price. The $269.99 price is only available for the first 100 customers, after which the Ulefone T2 will cost #299. In a world where the Umidigi S3 Pro, the Redmi Note 7 and the Meizu Note 9 exist, it is hard to recommend the Ulefone T2. Still, if you are interested, you can head over to BangGood and order one.
