Ulefone Power 3S is based on the Power 3 smartphone and users will find that definitely interesting not only because it is cheaper but also because it comes with a larger battery. The design of the Ulefone Power 3S is clearly inspired by the Samsung Galaxy S9/S8, at least from the front. The back is different though, which is home to two cameras.
Ulefone Power 3S specifications include 2.0GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P23 (MT6763) processor with ARM Mali-G71 MP2 and backed by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

The 6-inch Full HD + display (2160 x 1080 pixels) comes with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 that is protected by Gorilla Glass 4 glass, against bumps and scratches, and makes room for an 8MP dual-camera (interpolated at 13MP) + 5MP with LED Flash and support for Face ID accompanied by a dual 13MP rear camera (interpolated to 16MP) + 5MP with dual-tone dual-LED flash, to take photographs and selfie with a good depth of field and bokeh effect at any time of day. And it’s always on the back that we find the fingerprint reader, Touch ID.
There is no lack of support for 4G-LTE (dual-SIM and band 20), GPS, Bluetooth 4.1 and WiFi 802.11ac networks, while the USB Type-C port will take care of fast battery charging.

The only flaw remains the operating system, which is stuck at the Android 7.1 Nougat, although the company promised the transition to Android 8.1 Oreo very soon.
