Ulefone Armor 26 Ultra Review

Overview

If the Ulefone Armor 26 Ultra specifications sound too familiar, this is because this model comes very soon after the Ulefone Armor 23 Ultra - one of the brand's most successful smartphones. It has stripped off the satellite communication capabilities but in return delivers a battery capacity that's almost three times larger. Moreover, it arrives with a 200MP main camera, instead of a 50MP one. The display, chipset, and the rest of the cameras are the same as the ones of the Armor 23 Ultra. Let's check the Armor 25 Ultra specifications in detail and see what's in the box before we proceed with our in-depth review.
You can buy Ulefone Armor 26 Ultra at a promotional price from Ulefone's Official AliExpress Store.

Additional Ulefone Armor 26 Ultra accessories

We received the Armor 26 Ultra with two of the accessories from the Ulefone Armor accessories ecosystem. The first is the Armor Holster. This is a multifunctional phone pouch that keeps your hands free while you're busy with something else - exploring the great outdoors, riding a bike, working at a construction site, etc. It has a carabiner and a belt loop so it can be conveniently hung on the belt, a backpack, or other.
