There are a ton of cheap Chinese smartphones on the market which, while honestly not all that bad, are severely put down for their software. Usually those OEMs tend to try to stuff so much into their skin, it makes the device nearly unusable. However the Ulefone Paris is a little different. With solid specs, 4G, and a great 5″ display, it’s already pretty solid, however throw in the near stock Android build, and you’ve got an awesome little device. Oh, and did I mention it only costs $119?
The launcher is the main change on this device. Rather than something like the Google Now Launcher, the Ulefone Paris 4G has “U Launcher” installed out of the box as the default lancher. Like many phones from the Chinese market, this launcher takes the iPhone approach to apps and places them all on the homescreen rather than including an app drawer. However you can easily replace that with another launcher.
In terms of specs the Ulefrone Paris is actually pretty solid. The full spec list is below.
