Size and Display

The Ulefone Power Armor X11 Pro is designed to be a rugged smartphone with a rugged look, as Ulefone has made us accustomed to, with a premium synthetic rubber layer on the front and back, a length of 158.2mm and a width of 76.7mm, with a sturdy frame and rubber pads to absorb impact, and despite the weight of 330g The large thickness of 19.3mm creates a wonderful feeling when held in the hand, yes it is heavy but it is acceptable in a durable phone and I hope it performs well too. If you ask me about build quality, there’s nothing to complain about, and it’s affordable.

The just-right phone form factor paired with a full-screen 18:9 HD+ (1440 x 720) resolution display is rich in detail, with clear text, crisp images, and vivid, smooth video. Watch movies, view messages, or browse content, and you can be fully immersed in whatever you’re doing.

Camera

One of the highlights of the Ulefone Armor X11 Pro is the dual AI cameras. As far as their specs go, there’s nothing to worry about, but the hard truth is in the actual performance. On the back is a dual-camera setup with dual 16MP primary cameras and a Samsung S5K2P7 sensor, 1.0µm, 6-chip lens, FOV 77°, and ƒ/1.8 large aperture.

Capture every adrenaline-pumping moment with the dual rear cameras. The 16MP main camera powered by Samsung image sensors enables instant autofocus to capture exciting action, while the depth sensor 6 creates stunning bokeh effects in photos to upgrade your photography game. Combined with great low-light performance and light AI enhancements7, this phone takes high-quality photos and videos day or night.

Battery

The largest battery ever built into a rugged, compact smartphone. The Power Armor X11 Pro brings a rare combination of compact size and long battery life to the industry. The larger 8150mAh battery keeps the phone running longer and provides up to 4 days of uptime on a single charge. Its 5W OTG reverse charging can sometimes be a lifesaver, charging another phone, watch or earbuds.

For the average user, the battery can easily last a full day, depending on your usage, such as how many times you turn on the screen and the type of apps you’re running, but also enough to watch more than 12 hours of continuous video. However, it performs well, mainly because it comes with stock Android 12 and doesn’t have many pre-installed programs, even though the interface is simple and doesn’t have any complicated background processes, which is what limits battery consumption.

Performance

The MediaTek Helio G25 octa-core chip strikes a good balance between performance and power efficiency with a 2.0GHz high-frequency Arm Cortex-A53 CPU and 520MHz IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU. It comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage4 for most usage scenarios of the phone, and also supports 128GB microSD card5 for more possibilities.

Playing games and streaming video content, even for hours on end, will barely put a dent in this thing’s battery life. Leaving it idle, even for days on end, will only take off a few measly percentage points. On top of all of that, it recharges incredibly quickly and can be charged wirelessly.

Conclusion

The Power Armor 11 Pro is a practical phone that does exactly what it needs to do at a competitive price. The long-lasting battery life is matched only by the lifespan of the device itself, which is virtually indestructible in the palm of your hand. If affordability and reliability are your priorities for a smartphone, then Ulefone has the perfect rugged phone for you.
