Design and Display

The Ulefone S8 smartphone is quite a good looking device with slim side bezels and we’ll rounded edges. It has an overall sold ergonomics with a metallic unibody design. This a device that doesn’t speak budget in its appearance in anyway which is a good thing because users will prefer the more close to a premium smartphone it is in terms of looks.

However, you would have to stick with an HD display considering that the Ulefone S8 5.3-inch screen has a 1280 X 720 pixels resolution. This is not bad for a low budget smartphone dye to the price tag. There’s also a pixel density of 277 ppi and a decent viewing angle.
