Ulefone Vienna Review

16 May 2016, 19:10:32

Ulefone Vienna ReviewUlefone Vienna is probably one of the few audio-centric smartphones by Chinese manufacturers. It becomes even more interesting after noting its mid- to high-end specifications coupled with a price tag that is lower than USD 200. It is part of a series of Ulefone devices along with the Be Touch 3, Power, and the soon-to-be-released Future, each of which has a special feature that corresponds to a specific need of the public. On paper the Ulefone Vienna is quite tempting to audiophiles and people who are looking for a solid device with a higher-than-average audio quality. We have put it to the test and the results are more than interesting. More details - below.
The review unit has been provided by GearBest.com

Specifications

Ulefone Vienna is built around 5.5-inch LTPS IPS screen by Sharp with an FHD resolution. It is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with oleophobic coating and 2.5D curved edges. The display graces a high-quality plastic unibody, which is 8.6 mm thin and weighs 156 grams. Under its hood ticks a classic MediaTek MT6753 chipset that includes eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.3GHz and a 450MHz tri-core ARM Mali-T720 MP3 GPU. Its work is aided by 3GB of single-channel LPDDR3 RAM and the internal storage measures 32GB. It is eMMC type and can be expanded with up to 64GB. The model is equipped with a 13-megapixel primary camera, which has a SmartFSI Panasonic MN34152 sensor, a dual-LED flash and an f/2.0 lens. The selfie shooter has a 5-megapixel OmniVision OV5648, CMOS BSI+ sensor with a size of 1/4", 1.4 Вµm pixel size, and fixed focus. The audio department includes the standard earpiece and loudspeaker, but also a separate box sound chamber with a Smart audio PA by NXP, which includes an independent DAC (digital-to-analog converter) and operational amplifier. It provides an S/N ratio of 109dB, a THD < 0.001%, and frequency response range from 20Hz to 20KHz. The device is powered by a 3250 mAh, Li-Polymer battery by Sony, which, according to the manufacturer, should provide up to 260 hours of standby time. It is non-removable and arrives with a 5V/1.5A charger. There is a dual-SIM card tray on board. One of the slots is for a nano-SIM and the other is either for a micro-SIM, or for a microSD card. Both slots support 4G connections. More specifically, the model supports quad-band 2G GSM, dual-band 3G WCDMA, and penta-band 4G LTE networks. Its connectivity options also include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Wi-Fi Display, Bluetooth 4.0, micro USB 2.0, OTG. The smartphone also supports Cast screen, HotKnot, and has an infrared blaster that makes it a remote control for household appliances. Moreover, there is a fingerprint sensor on board as well as a compass, light, proximity, gravity, and hall sensor along with an accelerometer. The model runs Android 5.1 Lollipop and provides a choice of launchers for fans of skin customizing. Check out the complete list of Ulefone Vienna specifications for more details.

What's in the box

Ulefone Vienna is placed in an almost square dark-grey box with the model's name engraved with silver letters on top. Inside are the device, a flat USB cable, which is quite long as per current standards, the 5V/1.5A adapter with a USB port on the side, a pin for the SIM tray, a silicone protector for the back, and a short user-guide. Everything is meticulously packaged. The device has a plastic protector on the screen and on the back, which should be removed.

Design and build

Ulefone Vienna's design and build are one of the best features of the model. Don't let the fact that the body is plastic make you overlook the device. It has a stylish and solid unibody design with gentle curves on the corners and edges, both on the back and front. The body seamlessly blends with the 2.5D curved edges of the screen, which makes holding the phone a sheer pleasure. The back case has a matte, abrasion-proof coating, which should preserve the good looks of the device in time and also ensures steady grip. It does not flex under pressure, there are no crevices, cracking noises, or any other problem of the kind. All physical buttons fit perfectly in their holes, have a good response and protrude just enough to guarantee comfortable work, while managing to remain subtle and stylish. They, together with the ports and the metal rings of the camera and the fingerprint sensor have been smoothed and polished to perfection and add up to the overall premium look. Definitely the build is very solid and for users, who find this of greatest importance, the Ulefone Vienna might become a love at first sight. Don't expect thin bezels. The model is generous in width - 77.85 mm, yet remaining pretty comfortable for one-hand operation. Probably people with small hands will find working with one hand hard. The front portions on top and below the display are also generous and add to the total height of the device, which 153.5 mm. Something, which strikes since the very beginning and is a pleasant surprise, is that the smartphone looks very thin, though its waistline measures 8.6 mm. It also feels very light with a weight of 156 grams and lies comfortably in the hand. The model arrives in four colours: grace black, space grey, silk white, and rose golden. We are reviewing a grace black unit. Ulefone have also developed a new U-launcher and each of the color variants has a matching software skin, but more on this in the OS, UI and software section of this review.

Controls

Ulefone Vienna is equipped with capacitive touch buttons placed below the screen. They are classically arranged - the home button is in the middle, the back button is on its right, and the menu button is on its left. They are visible even if the device is not active. Above the screen from the left to the right are placed the light and proximity sensor, earpiece and the front camera. On the back, you'll find the primary camera, which centrally positioned, and below it are the dual-LED flash and the fingerprint sensor. The Ulefone logo stretches vertically across the center and below is the hole for the speaker. Surprisingly enough for an audio-centric device, the speaker is placed on the back. However, the guys from Ulefone have placed two small and slightly protruding semi-sphere "legs", which keep the sound from being too muted, when the device is placed on its back. On the left hand side of the Ulefone Vienna you can see the dual-SIM card tray and the Smart Key. If pressed longer, the Smart Key opens up the Voice Recorder. If pressed twice, it opens up the Camera app and within it serves as a convenient shutter button. On the right hand side of the device are placed three buttons - separated buttons for the volume up and down, and the power button below them. On top of the smartphone are the 3.5 mm jack and the Infrared blaster. It allows the device to serve as a remote control for your TV or other household appliance. At the bottom are the mic and the USB port. To the left and to the right of it are screwed small bolts.

Display

After the design and build, the display of Ulefone Vienna is its second most attractive feature. This is a 5.5-inch screen by Sharp with an LTPS IPS panel that has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (FHD). The LTPS (Low Temperature PolySilicon) technology has already been discussed in other reviews of ours. It is suffice to say that it is a preferred technology for larger screens, which aim to provide high resolutions and pixel densities. The top layer of the display is a Corning Gorilla Glass with oleophobic coating, which should provide protection against scratches and staining. The edges of the glass are 2.5D curved, allowing it to blend beautifully with the smartphone's body. The first impression, which remained unchanged throughout the whole testing period, is that the screen is very good. Amazingly fast and responsive, it is bright and displays text and images sharply. The colors look a bit over-saturated, but that's normal for an IPS panel. The horizontal and viewing angles are very good - 178 degrees, as expected. Normally, the display looks a bit darker when observed from an angle, but more importantly, there is no color shifting and inverting. Content is clearly visible under direct sunlight, when the brightness is set at 100%. MediaTek's MiraVision technology for improving the various aspects of the display, is also on board and can be found under the Settings > Display menu of the smartphone. Ulefone Vienna's display has a consistent static contrast ratio of around 1100:1 when the brightness is set at 100%, 75%, 50%, 25% and 0%. This is due to the proportional change in the white and black value at these brightness levels. At the top brightness level, the white value is 420.30 cd/m2, while the black one is 0.368 cd/m2. At the lowest brightness level, the white value is 18.77 cd/m2 and the black value measures 0.017 cd/m2. The color temperature shows consistency throughout the various brightness levels as well. It gravitates around the 8450-8500K mark. This means that the colors look slightly colder compared to lower temperatures of the white point.
Brightness White luminance Black luminance Contrast Color temperature
100 % 420.30 cd/m2 0.368 cd/m2 1142 : 1 8504 K
75 % 324.23 cd/m2 0.285 cd/m2 1138 : 1 8448 K
50 % 221.47 cd/m2 0.195 cd/m2 1136 : 1 8467 K

0 % 18.77 cd/m2 0.017 cd/m2 1104 : 1 8452 K

OS, UI and software

Ulefone Vienna runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box. A software update to 6.0 Marshmallow is expected in June as the guys from Ulefone announced on May 12th in their blog that they are still working on such a version for the Vienna. An interesting feature of the UI is that the model has an all-new U-launcher. The Ulefone team has been working on it for the past few months and it is customized to fit the four colors, in which the Vienna arrives - grey, white, black, and rose gold. In addition, there is a second launcher pre-installed, called Launcher3. If you activate it, it places a Change Skin icon in the app tray. Each time you click on it, it changes the skin of the smartphone. You have a choice of 5 available skins to match your taste or current mood. Under both launchers the device operates fluently. We haven't noticed software bugs during the time of our testing. From the lock screen you can access directly either the dialer, or the camera app. The home screen has the standard fixed dock of apps in two rows. The top one includes the Camera, Gallery, Settings and Play Store icons, while the lower includes the Dialer, Contacts, App Tray icon, Messenger, and default Browser. The App Tray icon opens the list of apps, which can be scrolled sideways. You get a classic-looking Task Manager as well as an extensive Quick Settings menu, which includes options regarding your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection, Airplane mode, choice of 4 pre-set audio profiles, flashlight, location, auto-rotation of the screen, HotKnot and Cast screen. A long press on the empty space on the home screen opens up the Wallpapers and Widgets section.
The Settings menu is well arranged without unnecessary clutter. The Wireless & Networks menu let you manage your Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HotKnot and other connections of the device, the SIM card(s), and data usage and synchronization. The Device menu lets you choose the type of launcher and allows you to manage the display, sound, storage, battery and apps. Among the Display options are the Daydream, Cast screen (transferring content to a larger display such as TV) as well as the three calibration options for the compass, G- and proximity sensor. The Sound options are pretty standard and include four pre-set audio profiles and a section for managing notifications and interruptions. The latter is just another way of naming the Do Not Disturb mode. The third large portion of the Settings menu is called Personal. It includes the standard and very extensive Security menu, but in the Ulefone Vienna its Fingerprint section is excluded from it and placed as a totally separate menu, which is convenient as access to this part of the smartphone is quicker this way. There is also a Smart settings option, which allows you to activate several gestures, with which you can interact with the device without touching it. These include Flip to mute calls/alarms, Smart wake/answer, Pocket mode for automatically turning the volume up. Finally, the System section features the standard Date & time, Scheduled power on & off, Accessibility, Printing (a cloud printing service is turned on by default), and About Phone.
It is typical for smartphones made in China to arrive without excessive clutter of apps pre-installed, which is one of their best features in general. Ulefone Vienna is no exception. You get the standard dialer, messenger, contacts, email and default browser apps as well as a calendar, calculator, compass, clock, camera, FM radio, music and sound recorder plus downloads and file manager apps. The rest are the typical Google apps such as Play Store, Gmail, Google, Google Settings, Maps. The flashlight is not included in the app tray, it can be switched on and off from the Quick Settings menu only.

Networks, calls and connectivity

As many other devices originating from China these days, the Ulefone Vienna packs a hybrid dual-SIM card tray. The first slot can house either a micro-SIM or a microSD card for additional storage. The second slot is for a nano-SIM card. Both slots support 4G LTE networks. When they work simultaneously, only one of them can receive LTE service, while the other has GSM reception only. You can choose, which of the two to be your main 4G card from the Settings menu. The exact bands supported by the model are: bands 2, 3, 5, and 8 for the 2G GSM (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz), bands 1 and 8 for the 3G WCDMA (900, 2100 MHz), and bands 1, 3, 7, 8, and 20 for the FDD-LTE Cat. 4 (800, 900, 1800, 2100, 2600 MHz) networks. The MTK Engineering app also showed that our review unit supports band 40 of the TDD-LTE (2300 MHz), which is otherwise no mentioned in the official specifications. As long as it concerns reception and call quality, the Ulefone Vienna performs excellently. The device supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Wi-Fi Display as well as Bluetooth 4.0, all of which function as expected. However, there is one thing you should have in mind about the Ulefone Vienna, regarding the Wi-Fi connection. Each time the device or the Wi-Fi connection is switched off and back on, it gets a different MAC address. This means that if your local Wi-Fi network is limited to several MAC addresses for more security, each time the device/connection is turned on, you have to set up its Wi-Fi settings all over again. This can be quite a nuisance, unless your Wi-Fi router has a Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) button. Such a button will save you the work of setting up the Wi-Fi connection on the phone every time. All you have to do is push it, so it discovers the phone as a new device. From the phone you just find your network and connect directly to it. A second method is using the WPS Pin Entry option. By using this method, the device generates a PIN code, which you should enter in your router's configuration panel thus adding it to your local network. In general, WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) is a standard for Wi-Fi networks, created to make connections The micro USB 2.0 provides OTG support for hooking up peripheral devices to the smartphone. MediaTek's HotKnot feature, which is equal to Qualcomm's NFC, is on board as well. The smartphone is equipped with an infrared emitter, which turns it into a universal remote control for various home electronics and appliances such as TV sets and air conditioners. Bear in mind you should have a remote control app on your phone. The Cast screen function allows you to transfer content from your device to a larger screen such as a TV or monitor. For this to work, you will need a special device, such as Google's Chromecast, to be attached to the TV/monitor. As long as it concerns satellite navigation, the model supports GPS/A-GPS and Glonass. During our testing it managed to identify local GPS and Glonass service very quickly and accurately.

Performance

Ulefone Vienna's hardware is based on a MediaTek MT6753 chipset. It includes a 1.3GHz octa-core CPU (Cortex-53 cores) and a 450MHz tri-core Mali-T720 MP3 GPU. Though being a true octa-core processor, this MediaTek model provides mid-range performance. Indeed, the benchmark results confirm this. Moreover, Vienna's results are quite comparable (a little lower) to the ones of other MT6753 devices with similar specs that we have tested. The chipset deals with standard apps and content flawlessly, but with heavy apps and graphics-demanding content it experience difficulties. For example, playing Asphalt 8 stutters and lags at any graphics level. The 3GB of single-channel LPDDR3 RAM on board allow you to interact with the device with peace of mind even if there are a few apps running on the background. The internal memory (eMMC) is larger than the one in other comparable devices - 32GB, mainly because audiophiles would most probably store large-format audio files. The storage can be expanded with up to 64GB via a microSD card. Sequential and random reading from the memory is fast, while the sequential and random writing to the memory is even faster than average. The Ulefone Vienna packs several tools and sensors on board, including a fingerprint one, which is placed on the back below the camera. It lets you store up to five fingerprint IDs, so you can unlock the phone with the finger you find most convenient. There is no prompt for using the fingerprint, when the screen is locked and you have already stored an ID. Just press the sensor and the phone will unlock quickly. The other sensors are a proximity, light, G- (accelerometer), gravity, Hall (magnetometer). There's a compass app as well.

Cameras

Ulefone Vienna has a 13-megapixel primary camera with a Panasonic MN34152 sensor. The sensor type is SmartFSI, introduced for the first time in 2012. This type of sensors has a special pixel structure, which includes a light "wall" between the separate color components of each pixel and a light "tube". Both concentrate the incoming light beam to pass directly through the red, green, and blue color and onto the photo diode thus lessening light lost and avoiding neighbouring color mixing. There is no other information about the specific sensor model except that its a 13MP one. In this smartphone it is combined with a dual-LED flash, auto-focus and an f/2.0 lens. The output are photos with a resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels. Under excellent light conditions the camera performs well for a device of that class. The front-camera with fixed focus is not bad for selfies and makes photos with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. It is equipped with a 5-megapixel CMOS BSI+ sensor from OmniVision - OV5648, which has a size of 1/4" and a 1.4 Вµm pixel size.

Audio

Ulefone Vienna is largely marketed as an audio-centric smartphone, which definitely puts expectations way high. The official specifications state that the device has a separate box sound chamber and an independent Hi-Fi chipset - the NXP Smart Audio PA, which packs both a DAC (digital-to-analog converter) and operational amplifier. It covers the frequency range from 20Hz to 20KHz, which corresponds to the ones audible to human ears. Total harmonic distortion (THD) is lower than 0.01% and the SN ratio is high at 109db, which should provide pure music experience. The exact Hi-Fi chipset model is not disclosed, but we presume it is the NXP TFA9887/TFA9890 IC one. This is a Class D amplifier that can provide more than 2.6W RMS power for the micro loudspeaker. For the best possible experience, Ulefone even recommended 5 pairs of earphones that are supposed to fit the Vienna best. These are the SoundMagic E10, Vsonic GR07 Classic, Edifier H841P, Pioneer SE-MX9-T, and Logitech UE 900s, among which there are both mid- and high-end earphones. So far, so good. We have put the Ulefone Vienna to the test by using our standard setup that includes the RightMark Audio Analyzer software and the TASCAM US-2x2 audio interface. The results show a Very Good score for most of the indicators, except for the Frequency Response, which scored Excellent and the THD + Noise, which scored Average. The overall audio score of the device is Very Good. We would have left this without any comment, but having an audio-centric device with an independent audio system, we expected the smartphone to score Excellent if not as an overall result, at least for most of the audio indicators. This result is very similar to the one of the Elephone P9000, which does not have a special audio equipment (at least not marketed as such). What is more curious is that the UMi Touch has even a higher score on some of the audio indicators compared to the Ulefone Vienna. Obviously, for a device of its class that costs less than $200, the Vienna has a very good audio performance, but you should not expect superior audio performance.

Battery

The battery is the third advantage of the Ulefone Vienna, which makes it a potential buy for people who find long battery life important. The device is equipped with a 3250 mAh Li-Polymer battery by Sony. It is non-removable and according to Ulefone's specifications, provides up to 260 hours of standby time. The battery is combined with a 5V/1.5A charger. This type of chargers is called fast, but actually is not that fast. It took 2 hours and 50 minutes to charge the battery from 0% to 100% and most of the time the charging happened at 1.39A. At the same time while draining it showed real stamina, so the result from the PCMark Battery test was not a surprise at all: 7 hours and 1 minute, which for a 3250 mAh battery powering an FHD 5.5-inch display, is an excellent result. The test has been performed with the brightness calibrated at 200 cd/sq.m. as recommended by Futuremark.

Final thoughts

During our test of the Ulefone Vienna, we discovered that the model has many advantages - excellent screen, great build and noteworthy battery life. At the same time its audio results turned out to be not as high as expected, but not bad either. So, if you need a reliable device, which is a pleasure to look at and work with, the Vienna might top your wishlist as it costs under $200.
