Everything that makes up a rugged smartphone is found on this device; just that, it’s also goodly to look at. Being attractive is one feature that most rugged smartphones lack but Ulefone went all the way to design the Armor 5 winsomely.

Water, dust and concrete resistance (IP68 rating) are some of the features that make up the doggedness of this phone. I’m sure you’re familiar with water and dust resistance but not concrete. Let’s assume you’re a civil engineer or a building tech worker, the Ulefone Armor 5 is a go-to phone as you don’t care if it drops and gets mixed up in concrete at any point. You’ll simply pick it up, and have it as good as new.

Thanks to the notch, the phone has about 80% screen-to-body ratio added to the 18.5:9 aspect ratio on its large 5.85-inch display. As that handles the number of multimedia that will get displayed, the 720 x 1512 pixels resolution and 286PPI pixel density control the multimedia quality.

At the core, MediaTek Helio P23 SoC together with a 4GB LPDDR3 RAM sees to the impressiveness of the mobile’s performance. The room for storing files has 64GB capacity although it can aggrandize to 256GB using the hybrid SIM slot.
