The Vodafone Smart 6 Ultra model belongs to the new batch of models that the operator has presented to enjoy its high-speed 4G networks. This equipment is manufactured by ZTE and is situated in the upper-middle range, with first-rate specifications that will meet the expectations of the most demanding users. And is that this 5.5-inch phablet sports a good Full HD resolution, integrates an eight-core processor in its guts and a rear camera with a Sony sensor and 13 megapixels. A good cover letter in a thin and thin body that can make it one of the most interesting equipment in the operator's catalog. HeVodafone Smart 6 Ultra will hit the market throughout the month of July at a price that has not yet been revealed. Meanwhile, we bring you an in-depth analysis of its main technical details.
Design and display
The design of this equipment uses a metallic body to enhance its attractiveness, although its external appearance does not differ much from the proposals we usually find in the market. Where the accent has been placed and it is to be appreciated is the fineness and weight of the model . Thus, Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 is placed in a thickness of 8.35 mm and a weight of 155 grams , measures that favor its grip. In addition, it has been tried to reduce its side frames to the maximum to make it easier to work with one hand.
But above all, one of its strengths will be the screen. Its panel 5.5 inches looks good resolution full HD 1,920 x 1,080 pixels , yielding a density of 400 dots per inch. This level of detail will greatly enhance its use as a media player to enjoy high resolution movies and videos. In addition, we always like to highlight the use of IPS technology when it comes to achieving very remarkable viewing angles of up to 178 inches both horizontally and vertically.
The Smart Ultra 6 is not far behind in the photographic section. The company has strengthened this field with a Sony BSI sensor that captures light better and has a resolution of 13 megapixels, autofocus and an LED flash . This camera is also capable of recording high resolution 1080p video. In addition, the HDR mode will improve the taking of pictures in low light conditions such as at dusk by means of the superposition of several shots. In the front area of the Ultra meet a target of 3 megapixels for taking selfies or using apps by videoconference
Memory and power
The Vodaffone Smart Ultra 6 is powered by an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chip with a power of 1.5 GHz per core. This processor is combined with a 2 GB RAM to create a quite remarkable set when it comes to running Android applications and games . In addition, those 2 GB of RAM will allow us to have a greater number of open processes without slowing down the overall performance of the computer. The internal memory of the phablet amounts to 16 GB,a capacity that should be sufficient with normal use of the equipment. Of course, if we are going to squeeze all the juice from the camera and the 4G download capacity, it is likely that sooner or later we will have to use an additional Micro SD card of up to 32 GB , or a storage system of the type from Dropbox or Google Drive.
Operating system and applications
The operating system with which this model arrives is Android 5.0 Lollipop, the latest revision of this popular Google platform. Its improvements include a complete facelift in menus and icons with a more intuitive and simple handling. For example, among the new functions we really like that the system warns us of the charging time that we need to have a full battery, or a more attractive aspect of the tool to move between open applications. In addition, its new camera app favors a faster transition between the shooting mode and the photos contained in the phone. AndroidIt opens the door to a large number of apps and games through its official store, with a large number of quality titles that will allow us to customize the phablet to our liking.
The Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 is compatible with Vodafone's high-speed 4G networks up to 150 Mbps . This operator is one of the fastest deployed this type of network in Spain and has good coverage when we move through Spanish territory. In those places where the signal does not reach we will also connect through 3G or through WiFi at home. Another connection that can be quite heavy is NFC . This touch technology is used in tools such as Vodafone Wallet to carry out mobile payments. We also have Bluetooth 4.0 to sync compatible devices or GPSto navigate anywhere via Google Maps or Waze.
Autonomy, price and opinions
This phablet includes a 3,000 milliamp battery . Although no official data has been given yet, it should be enough to withstand a whole day of use without problems. Nor do we yet know the official prices of this equipment with Vodafone , but if the offer can be closed with a competitive price, we would be talking about an excellent catalog option to enjoy the Android universe with first-rate features.
