I'm trying to compare two smartphones.

Post by bilateralrope » 2020-10-14 04:15am

My dad has offered to upgrade my smartphone for Christmas, and he's given me a choice between these two options:
Ulefone Armor 2S
Ulefone Armor X5

I'm leaning towards the first one, mainly due to it going with a fingerprint reader instead of facial recognition. But I'd like some help knowing if any of the other differences are significant. So, if anyone has any reasons why they might prefer one of those phones over the other, please let me know.

For reference, I currently have a Samsung Xcover 4 and the only complaint with it is that it's a bit slow with Google Maps.

The x5 has android 9, the 2s has android 7. That probably means the x5 will still be receiving security updates.

Yes, if your going with this line get the one with the highest android OS, 9 is still listed as supported unlike 7.

Thanks. That would have been a good argument for the X5.

However my dad decided to change his mind, and instead gave me a choice between two Android 10 phones. The X8 or X7 Pro. Both Android 10 phones. I picked the X8, and it's now too late to change my mind.
