Ulefone Armor 24 Review - impressive battery life and an excellent overall package for the price

Overview

Ulefone Armor 24 features a 22000 mAh battery pack which easily makes it a top contender for the first places in our battery life tests. However, this is not an isolated feature as this smartphone offers quite a balanced set of specifications coupled with an affordable price. A big and fast display, good cameras, reasonably performing power-efficient chipset, great connectivity, and other perks such as a very bright camping lamp create a device that's definitely worth considering if you're on the hunt for a durable smartphone on which you can rely in any type of conditions. Let's overview the official specifications sheet and check what's in the box before we proceed with the rest of the review.

A bright camping lamp dominates the design of the rear shell delivering 1000 Lumens max thanks to the 510 LEDs built into it. It has a max power of 6W and is IPX8 waterproof. Actually, the device is IP68, IP69K, and MIL-STD-810H certified for being resistant to water, dust, dirt, extreme temperatures, drops, etc. This enables underwater photography as well.

The rest of the connectivity options include NFC, Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 5, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi Hotspot, and Cast Display. Furthermore, the Armor 24 has an IR blaster that turns it into a convenient remote control, a USB Type-C 2.0 port, a headphone jack, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
