I had a Motorola s5 before I got this armor 8 phone. I never had good service my phone would turn off for no reason. Sense I got my new phone armor 8 I have perfect service. I love the color and design. It has awesome features. Great battery life and very unbreakable. I love it. Wish I would have found the rugged phones sooner.

Solid cell. I am coming from a Moto G6 tho. Which wasn’t bad. This is light years better, I don’t use facial recognition, or a finger print sensor.. but for an every day, very sturdy phone that looks super cool this is great!! Calls are clear, volume for callers is very tolerable for those w hearing sensory issues, calls are not tinny. It it large enough to be able to grip and not drop, even by accident. Switching over from t mobile was super easy, just transferred sim card and reloaded google. Def. a good buy for the price!!
I’ve been a die hard Samsung Galaxy Active user since they came out. For both the S6 and S7, I actually owned several over the course and thought they were as rugged as you could get… I was wrong.
When I finally killed my last Galaxy Active, I refused to pay $500-$900 for a new phone! That’s just crazy! SO, I started looking at off-brands out of curiosity. I spent a lot of time looking at three different Chinese phones that were all marketed as rugged. I compared processor specs and features and looked hard at reviews. Eventually, I decided to go with the Ulefone Armor 8 and was a little nervous about what I would receive. It arrived well packaged in a nice box similar to my Samsungs; came with two screen protectors and the appropriate charging cables. I was able to just pop my AT&T sim card in and it instantly worked. Tossed an SD card in also for extra storage, but haven’t needed it yet.
Very good phone, well pleased.

My son bought one a while back. He loves it. He’s destroyed at least 1 phone a month for the last 4 years. So far, this phone has survived in excellent condition. He loves it! so I bought one.

I’ve had this phone for a few weeks now and so far I am pleased with it. With moderate use the battery has lasted about 3 days without a charge. When I do charge it, it charges within a few hours. The only drawback so far was with the packaging. It came with a extra screen protector, but no directions on how to use it. The phone has one on it already, so I don’t know if I’m supposed to double them up or not. Other than that, I’m really liking it.

Excellent value for money.

Ottimo smartphone con un ottima durata della batteria e buona fotocamera, unica pecca é lentissimo a caricare la batteria

It also a fingerprint reader that allows you to gently touch the phone in a natural hand position to unlock it. I have tried it and it works as advertised but I prefer to manually use a PIN but am sure there are lots of people will love the fingerprint reader.
I don’t think you can find a better phone at a price even close to this one, don’t look any further…buy it!

I love this phone. It is the best.
Genial, sobre todo para andar por obras y para deporte, es fácil e intuitivo.
Overall, this phone is PERFECT!!! I don’t play games, but I do need internet browsing, and email capabilities. I do a lot of online shopping/selling and this phone breezes through apps and processing very smooth and faster than my Samsung could. It does everything I need it to and is far more rugged than the Galaxy Actives ever were!! It has a good solid rubberized feel to it. Good weight and size, and it’s tough. I can’t tell you how many times it’s taken a fall already, but you’d never know looking at it. For this price and performance, Ulefone has me hooked!
The one con I have for this phone is the camera. It still takes photos just fine, but not the camera is not to the level of the Samsung Galaxy S7. That camera was amazing. This does the job just fine and isn’t really an issue for me. The Pros for this phone far outweigh it!! For less than $240, you can’t beat it!

Excellent all-rounder, great for outdoor experiences
So far I’m loving this phone. I was nervous to by a brand I had not heard of but the price for what this offers was too good to pass up and I refuse to pay ridiculous money for a phone! so far I am very pleased. The phone is very impressive right out of the box. Much thinner than I expected with such a large battery life
Annette watts –
By the price and performance, I would say Yes! Buy it!
I’ve loaded and tested all my favorite apps and everything works great. The display is beautiful, sounds are good, phone call sound quality is great, and my Fitbit works well with it. The only thing I haven’t really tested too much so far is the camera. I snapped a few pics just to make sure it worked but as far as the quality of the camera I can’t say just yet. However, I am very pleased with the phone overall and may even buy one for my husband.

I work as a courier and I have to say BIG WOW. Never but I never had a phone like this.
Good job Ulefone
This my second Ulefone, I had the X5 and picked up this new Armor 8 and love it! The form factor (size) is a little tighter and fits much better in my pockets than the X5 since it is a little bit shorter. The camera is much improved over the X5 and takes pictures that are sharper and able to focus on close objects much better than the X5. The battery is only 4000mah but it will still last almost 3 days for me using mostly email and text messages and taking pictures. I have used the x5 and now this Armor 8 out hiking and backpacking in the so calif deserts in extreme heat and dirt/sand conditions and it has never failed me.

I have bought Ulefone phones in the past (Model Be X), and so I know that they can make a real good phone for the budget contentious. So I needed a phone that can really take a tumble So I bought this model. For the price I am loving it.
The build quality is solid, and It’s mot too heavy nor to light. Even with the 720p resolution the dot pitch on the phone is excellent so the image does not look pixelated, Screen is very responsive, and the color is vivid with good black levels to boot. It is very water proof as far as getting it wet however I have not thrown it into a pool to check it’s “underwater features” yet. Bluetooth, NFC, and Wi-Fi features work as they should. Also no metal Key was required to takeout the SIM Card/Micro SD Tray, but you will need some fingernials to do so. The waterproof plugs are tight so even tough it may be a pain to open at first it means it’s going to stay waterproof. Battery life is very good. NO BLOATWARE! I was able plug in a 3.5 headphone jack (with a large base) with ease. Video playback is smooth, and audio is great. The built speaker is nice & loud.

The camera takes great pictures and the underwater photos are easy to get good results with, I took a photo of my water fountain and then dunked it into the water and took a picture of the lights down at the bottom. You can see they are sharp and the colors are vibrant and clean.

Purchased this phone for the wife to use on Mint Mobile. Phone works great and I love that it has NFC for Google Pay. This is not a gaming phone but is for talking, texting, and everyday productivity apps. It’s built tough and would be a great device as a first phone for a young adult.
I use T-mobile and in the past I could only get wifi calling with t-mobile brand phones but the Armor 8 works perfectly with the t-mobile wifi calling so I can still make and receive calls while at work in difficult IT rooms that have no cellular service!

I want a phone with 1. It has dual sim cards so I can use for travelling in different countries ( including China) . 2. It is not expensive and with good performance. There are many phones made by China meet my requirements. But after I bought and compared several phones, I think this one is the best. I tried to put one T-Mobile card and one Verizon card in it and it is working perfectly. It is only $240 but the all function performance are very good ( speaker, photo, Wi-Fi , display,audio and video , Android app , etc.). I have iPhone X and iPhone X Max also but now I use this phone for most of the time.
And one more thing is important that the company technic support is very good. I had many questions to ask them and got feedback quickly. The people are nice and patient. Their technical knowledge is good to answer my questions.

Very good phone. I upgraded from the Armor X6 rugged phone and this one is much better. Very easy and aesthetic interface. Fast to learn and nice to look at. Durable design with shock proof features that make me feel safe taking it anywhere. It’s already gotten wet and after I wiped it off, it’s like nothing had happened to it. I love how this phone is designed to travel anywhere yet it looks cool and I can use it for everyday use as well. The camera is clear and crisp. They already put a screen protector on it for you when you order it and it comes with a nifty wrist band to attach to it! Sound quality is great and all it’s connections are smooth. It also comes with a lot of helpful apps that most basic smart phones would not come with. Glad I got this phone!

The phone is well made with several features such as water resistant, 4000 mAh battery, dual sim card or sim card and TF card slot. Works on multiple networks including T Mobile and ATT and comes with Android 10. The screen is large and the overall design seems rugged and light weight. The phone is a great value. The downside is the charging port is a micro usb port and not a usb-c port. Other than that this phone is a good little phone.
J. Morgan –
This is a great phone for the outdoors type person. Be warned it’s an absolute unit. Its big and heavy but its like that to make it robust.
More than a smartphone, gr8!
Karen Burns –
Fast DHL shipping, thx
Antonio Perkins –
Great smartphone! More massive than I expected. This is already my second Ulefone. The quality is good, there are no complaints.
Graham Thompson –
It’s built like a brick, strong and robust and no doubt as heavy as brick. This is all down to the casing being super rugged with hard rubber like corner protection and metal side panels. It will survive many drop tests.
Definitely worth a try! It is a budget smartphone which is built to last!
Tanya killerby –
The screen is bright and clear and the camera is superb.Sound quality is good out of the main speaker so I can listen to my music out of it. All in all, it is a phone that meets your every needs while it won’t break your bank.
Wommer Jacob –
Extremely pleased with this phone. Honestly I’m not sure why I’ve been spending so much on my previous phones. It is slightly larger than I was expecting, but you do get amazing battery life because of it. Fully water proof, feels sturdy. Very impressed.

Excellent “customer service”, purchased my phone on 10th May, 2021 and received it on 20th May 2021 at DOMINICAN REPUBLIC via DHL, the phone performs just as advertised by Ulefone, super fast, big, heavy and rugged. Super happy with my purchase, had an Iphone and this is a very good upgrade for me, better reception, connectivity is perfect using two different companies. Thank you Niki, Cecilia and the rest.
Francisca Pelchen –
As per description. Will come to know as I put it through its paces during my delivery runs

handles drops better than any other phone I have had
Jess Bludau –
This phone was easy to set up and has all the features of any other smartphone plus an amazing battery life. Went away for a weekend and didn’t take the charger and didn’t need it 72 plus hours life. It’s a big and heavy phone – so what. It’s rugged. I won’t buy another brand now.
Carlos Dueck M –
