Apprenrance of Ulefone Armor 17 Pro
Although the 17 Pro is a rugged phone, it is only 12.5mm thick. Not like other rugged phones, it only weighs about 290 grams, which is a relatively thin and light rugged phone. It not only supports the basic IP68 and IP69K certifications, but it also has no dust plugs for its ports. This shows that uleFone is very confident with the dustproof capability.
The Armor 17 Pro’s design looks rather normal, but that doesn’t mean it’s ugly. The back is very simple, with a matte carbon fiber textured back panel plus a centered lens module. There’s no flashy design, so at least you won’t get bored with it after a long time. And it feels great to the touch, very silky smooth.

Despite having the traditional rugged IP68/69K/MIL-STD-810G badges, the 17 Pro also stands out through its need to add Gorilla Glass 5 protection for this screen. Ulefone’s usual smartphone niche operates on the point of being as durable as possible with supposedly professional- or military-grade ingress-protection ratings for their reinforced builds.
The Armor 17 pro was tested with a rating of IP68 in an under-controlled laboratory conditions under IEC standard 60529(maxinum depth of 1.5 meters up to 30 minutes). Please kindly not that slash water and dust resistsnce are not permanent conditions, and resistance might decrease as a result of normal wear.
Highlights of Ulefone Armor 17 Pro
At the rest part of the Ulefone Armor 17 pro review, we will take a look at the highlight specs of Armor 17 pro rugged smartphone.
Most Advanced Camera System
Can you imagine a 108-megapixel camera being introduced into a “rugged” type of smartphone? Even in mainstream smartphones, 108MP cameras are still rare. While Armor 17 pro did that! The other two are the 8MP Ultra-wide camera and a 8MP Night vision camera. The 8MP Ultra-wide camera doesn’t perform as well as the main camera, but considering that some rugged phones don’t even have an Ultra-wide camera, it’s good that the 17 Pro has this one.
Night vision camera is the most common camera used in uleFone’s rugged phone series. However, the night vision is only 8MP. And the upgraded night vision camera is complemented by two infrared LEDs, enabling users to easily navigate targets in no-light areas for professional uses. Most of the night vision camera from them are 20MP. But considering the 108MP main camera, the other two cameras are less important.
66W Hyper-fast Charging
The Ulefone Armor 17 Pro supports 66w fast wired charging and 15w wireless charging, and the wired charging power is the fastest of any rugged phone. A coffee break is all you need to refuel this phone, thanks to the fast charging technology. It delivers 38% battery in just 10 minutes, 53% battery in 15 minutes, and 90% battery in 30 minutes.
120Hz Refresh Rate
The Armor 17 Pro’s screen is a 120Hz FHD+ LCD screen with Corning Gorilla 5th gen protective glass. 120Hz screens are rare in rugged phones. Therefore, the screen can refresh 120 times per second for ultra smooth scrolling, twice more than a normal 60 Hz screen. And with a 240Hz touch sampling rate, it’s already much better than most rugged phones. If you want it to be smooth and power efficient, you can also choose 90Hz.
What surprising is that Armor 17 Pro not only supports wireless charging, but also supports magnetic phone stand. Meaning it can be used like an iPhone with a magnetic wallet, and it’s free. In fact, it’s more than a wallet, it’s also a phone stand. Unfold it like this and it keeps the phone up.
What’s more, it also supports a magnetic portable speaker and a magnetic power bank which has 3000mAh capacity. Well done, uleFone!
Portable & Lightweight
Unlike other rugged phones from uleFone, Armor 17 pro only weighs about 290 grams. Some people don’t like heavier phones, thinking they are bulky. However, most of the protection performance of the rugged mobile phone is at the cost of sacrificing the weight.
Although the Armor 17 pro is lighter than other ulefone tough phone models, it does not mean that the protection performance of the Armor 17 pro is not good. Anyway, this is a relatively big improvement for Ulefone taking into account both the protection performance and feel.
Android 12 OS
Armor 17 pro runs the new Android 12 operation system, offering a clean and tidy interface which will be enjoyed by everyone. No ads, bloatware or preinstalled apps on board.
