Today, we are going to take a look at ucatels latest rugged, smartphone, the wp 15. This is undoubtedly one of the best rugged smartphones and offers great value for the price, with an impressive fifteen thousand six hundred milliampere battery 5g connectivity, ip68 mil std 180 g rating. This is a versatile smartphone that could easily double as an affordable, all weather mobile hotspot. For busy outdoor teams lets start with its design, wp 15 is not a device that chooses to hide its a beast of a phone and has the looks to show it. The appearance continues to be characterized by that iconic design of the company, with mostly squared lines and excellent attention to detail. Although the phone is much heavier than regular phones, its still justified with the kind of protection the body offers at 178.2 by 86.2 by 23.8 millimeters and weighing at 485 grams, its quite a large phone, but its v shaped design, makes it a bit easier to hold It is covered by high quality, synthetic rubber and rated with ip68 and ip69k, which means its dust, scratch shock and drop resistant and waterproof up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes. In addition, it also has mil std 810g certification, a military standard certification that ensures the integrity of the device is maintained in almost any situation. The bottom of the phone is host to a rubber flap that hides a type c usb port and a lanyard connector loop on the left of the wp 15.

There is a customizable button and sim tray, while the other edge contains a fingerprint reader that doubles as power button, as well as a volume rocker. The front of the device is occupied by a six and a half inch hd plus screen covered with what looks like an oleophobic layer that mitigates smudges and is surrounded by a thick protective rubber frame and has a teardrop, 8 megapixel selfie camera sensor, bang in the Middle on the back, you get a triple camera setup that features a 48 megapixel sony, imx 582 sony primary camera with a 1.8 aperture for the rest of the cameras. You have a 2 megapixel macro lens and a 2 megapixel bokeh camera here are some camera samples. We shot on the wp 15 well as a rugged smartphone. The camera quality is usually not what we value very much, but, as you can see from the samples, the phone actually performs very well. You can also achieve your task easily without interruption due to the long, lasting fifteen thousand six hundred milliampere battery and eighteen watt fast wired charging. That means you dont really need to bother about frequent charging of your device, and the wp 15 supports otg reverse charging, which can turn into a power bank for another device in case of an emergency. While the impressive battery is the unique selling point to the wp 15, the rest of the specifications are not actually bad. The wp 15 comes with the standard hardware.

Youd expect from a rugged smartphone within that price bracket. Theres, a mediatek demensity 700 system on chip with 8 gigabytes of ram and 128 gigabytes onboard storage. The 7 nanometer processor delivers clock rates of up to 2.2 gigahertz and sufficient power for everyday tasks. Even playing games shouldnt be a problem for the wp 15. In addition, the seven nanometer manufacturing process ensures high efficiency. Overall, the dementia 700 is a good choice for mid range devices that want to combine sufficient performance and good battery life, and thanks to this chipset, it features support for 5g bands, which no doubt would help the phone stand out from the competition in the market. In addition, the phone also supports nfc functions, which should be a widely popular feature for those of us who use mobile payment. As far as call quality goes, i had no issues in handset or speakerphone mode. The wp 15 runs on the android 11 system with a ui that contains a lot of features, the most important of which is the presence of all google services, making the smartphone experience smoother and more personalized. And thankfully there is basically no bloatware on this phone texting. Downloading apps catching up on youtube subscriptions or streaming music via spotify were all as expected and similar to my other devices. The yucatel wp15 manages to carve out a niche in the crowded rugged smartphone market. It is keenly priced and will be of particular interest to those.

Looking for a solution that has a longer than average battery life, in any case, the only negative is the weight, but still this is what you get for a smartphone with a whopping battery and full military standards protection if youre looking for a rugged smartphone with good Specs 5g connectivity, large screen and excellent, build quality. Then the wp 15 5g should be on your list.
