When I first saw the UHANS A101S, I thought it was very similar to the Galaxy J5, which shouldn’t be bad, since that was a pretty solid midrange phone. Anyway, this UHANS newcomer recently came to us for unboxing and review purposes and we’re checking it out below. It’s priced at $87 on GearBest and it’s a 3G smartphone with low midrange specs.


Available in gray, gold and pink, the device is promoted as a phone for youngsters and it comes bundled with a charger, USB cable, manual, screen protection, case (transparent and flexible), plus some wipes, both wet and dry. There are no headphones here, but the other accessories are welcome. There’s 2.5D glass panel upfront on the smartphone and this one is quite a thick unit, at 9.5 mm in waistline.

The specs are on the low spectrum of the midrange area, with a 5 inch IPS panel with 720p resolution, plus a quad core MediaTek MT6580 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage and a microSD card slot. There’s an 8 megapixel back camera here, capable of interpolation, as well as a 2 MP front shooter. Once again, this is a 3G-only phone, so no love for 4G LTE here.


It also has a 2450 mAh battery and it comes with a customized version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, very colorful and without an app drawer. The back cover is removable, offering access to two SIM slots and a microSD, plus the battery is removable too. An interesting aspect is that the Sony IMX219 sensor of the main cam is actually used on the Raspberry Pi as part of the equipment.

We’ll be back with a full review very soon and in the meantime you can purchase this budget phone here.
