OS, UI and software

Ulefone Power Armor 19 runs on stock Android 12 with a warm yellow undertone and yellow/brown accents in the UI. The Lock Screen is in its most minimalistic appearance with a Time and Date widget, Wi-Fi, and Battery icons in the status bar. The default screen unlock is a swipe. The Home Screen has a classic appearance as well with a search bar on top, a Date widget, and two rows of apps at the bottom. A swipe to the right opens Google Discover. A swipe to the left gives access to the next two desktops with apps. The Widget menu contains the Home Settings, from where you can activate a new launcher with an app drawer. The latter is accessed by a swipe up from the Home Screen and lists the apps vertically in alphabetic order. Desktop shortcuts are supported.
The Task Manager tiles the applications horizontally. For each, you get access to the app info, split-screen mode, an app lock, and a white list option. The Notifications shade has a standard Android 12 design and layout. It is accessed via a swipe from the left top of the display. The Quick Settings are slightly customized with all toggles listed on one page, four major toggles, and a brightness level bar tucked in between. it is accessed via a swipe down from the right top of the display. The Volume and Power off menus are also with standard design and layout featuring the warm yellow-brown color palette.
Ulefone Power Armor 19 arrives with all the usual pre-installed apps and some additional ones. The Google applications include the Assistant, Calendar, Chrome, Drive, Files, Gmail, Google Discover, Keep Notes, Lens, Maps, Meet, Play Store, Photos, YouTube, and YT Music. The standard Android apps comprise the Calculator, Camera, Clock, Contacts, FM Radio, Messenger, Note, Phone, and Sound Recorder. There's also the ToolBag app and a System Manager app. The latter contains tools for power management, cleaning rubbish, app lock, one key cleaning, freezing room, and app autoboot. The Easy launcher, Child Mode, Game mode, and QR code scanner are also available as separate applications. There's a dedicated app for the thermometer and a separate app for the uSmart connector in order to operate the microscope or endoscope device you're going to plug in.
The Settings app lists the various options in the older-Android style - separate groups. The first group is about connectivity, of course. The first-level menus include the Airplane mode toggle, SIM card & mobile data, Wi-Fi settings with related options, and other wireless connection options. Under "Other..." you get Bluetooth, NFC, Cast, Chromebook, Hotspot, VPN, Printing, Nearby Share, Android Auto, and Private DNS settings. The second group of settings mixes device settings with security ones. It begins with the Notifications options including app settings, history, conversations, bubbles, lock screen notifications, DND mode, wireless emergency alerts, and several standard toggles such as the Blink Light one. The second menu is about managing the Display, which has already been described in the corresponding section of this review. The Sound menu follows with its four volume-level bars, DND mode, ringtones, and various specific toggles.
It is followed by the Security menu comprising Google Play Protect, Security Update, Find My Device and Google Play System Update. It continues with the screen lock settings, face & fingerprint unlock, Smart lock, and the rest of the typical security options. The last menu in the group is about managing passwords and accounts. The third group begins with the Apps menu with options to manage default applications, screen time, unused apps, and special app access. It is followed by the Battery menu, the Storage menu with a storage manager toggle, and the Accessibility options. The fourth group is the biggest one and contains almost everything else. It begins with the Privacy settings including the dashboard, permissions manager, camera and microphone access, lock screen notifications, autofill service, activity controls, Google location history, etc. It is followed by the Location menu with its privacy context. The Custom Key menu allows you to assign functions to the physical button on the left frame of the device depending on whether you click it once, twice, or hold and press.
The Fingerprint menu is next and contains a list of features that can be toggled on and off and serves as various types of navigation and quick access to apps and functions. The following menus are Digital Wellbeing, Google, Memory expansion for virtual RAM expanding, DuraSpeed, Safety & Emergency, and Smart Assist. The Memory Expansions is what it says - you can virtually expand the available RAm with 2GB, 3GB or 5GB. In order to take effect, the phone must be restarted. The Safety & Emergency menu allows you to add information that can be used in cases of an emergency including contacts, your own data, SOS, location services, wireless emergency alert settings, etc. The Smart Assist contains several intelligent features such as the Smart Touch - a floating dot that can serve as an alternative way of navigation, Gesture Motion, Night Light, One-handed mode, Gloves mode, and Reverse wireless charging.
The fifth group contains only the System menu and the About Phone one. The "System" one contains the usual update options, backup and reset, date and time, languages and input, and gestures. Under gestures, you will see the "Quickly open camera" feature and the system navigation settings. It is from the latter that you set whether you will use virtual buttons or on-screen gestures for navigating. The About Phone menu contains the usual data about the model name, main specifications, software versions, IMEI numbers, MAC address, etc.
