My previous experience with Uelfeone brand was positive in general. Today we have visit from future, it is not cliché it is Ulefone Future. But first lets see what specification Ulefone Future has to over.

I will position Ulefone future as high end performer in mid range segment, it features Mediatek Helio P10 alo known as MTK6755 which true Octa core processor with each core working on 2.0ghz, dedicated graphic chip is Mali T860, 4GB of Ram sounds promising with 32GB of storage.
Ulefone Power telephony is working great, in call speaker is great offering clear sound which is also loud enough, people also reported that they can hear me very well. Front facing camera is 5mpx and its performance is good, not the best I seen but pictures got enough of details, colors are usually good, but sometimes colors can be a bit washed out, which can be easily fixed in post.
Always good to have is notification light, and for device which came from Future I m glad that it has it.
Focusing on screen will open many interesting things to be told. First of all it is 1080P unit, screen is solid with excellent colors and viewing angles. Only the brightness could be a bit higher, this is noticeable outdoors but hey you still can see everything with naked eye. I will stop here and speak a bit about so called curved screen, to brake your hopes this is fake thing. Glass is curved but what they did is that actual screen bezels are ultra thin. With glass going on top of it with curved edges, creating illusion of complete curved screen.
This is just quick overview, full in depth review you can watch on YouTube below.
Camera provides crisp images with good color representation. But I need to admit that in some situation, lets say cloudy day colors and white balance will go off a bit, so picture will look dead and not inspiring.
This can be fixed in post process by addicting saturation a bit. Video quality is surprisingly good but it could be a little bit better with mp4 container and higher bitrate it would be a pure win.
