UleFone Be One Smartphone Review

Mobile/Smart Phones by stefan @ 2015-01-12 read/post comments(1)

The Be One model from UleFone sports a newer Android version than Kolina K100+ V6, 4.4.2 and we have promises Android 5.0 will be also available for this model. Speaking of the device performances, we are dealing with the quite familiar octa-core MTK6592, which was released after the quad-core MTK6589, none of them sporting stellar performances regarding the GPS. The MTK6592 can be found in three different versions: 1.7GHz which was the first one and we have seen it at the iOCEAN X7S and X8, the later 2.0GHz Turbo version which we have seen with the ThL 5000 and Kolina K100+ V6, but also 1.4GHz which is the lowest clocked and also has only 600MHz 3D clock. Be One comes… read more
