Sold Out: Ufone U5 Smartphone Becomes Unavailable in Market

Ufone recently launched its own smartphone with a price tag of Rs 5,999 only, making it the cheapest Quadcore smartphone available in the market in the category, outsmarting all competitors, specially Q-mobile.

Initial reports suggest that Ufone U5 Smartphone received tremendous reviews from the users. Consequently, due to high demand and increased interest, It is now reported that the smartphone is not available in the market.

Our readers tell that Ufone Smart U5 was sold-out of the shelves in Karachi initially, however, it is now not available in almost every other city.

When contacted, Ufone representatives clarified the situation saying, “Due to the excellent response, we are experiencing a demand-supply gap, which will be filled in the coming week, as the smart phone will be available yet again at our customer service centres across the country.”

The device offers reasonable battery backup and looks fine given the price at which it’s being offered.

    The Mobile seems to be good at a cheap rate. 1 gb ram would have made it the best pick. 512 is too low for running even social networking apps simultaneously..

    • Azeem Ullah Hasan

      That will remain a dream for now maybe, even Samsung’s much-expensive mid-range phones come with such. For this price it is fine though.

      • Saad

        Yes, it isnt bad, in fact quite good.

        Whats bad in dreaming anyway though :P

    • Geekpk

      This is the beauty of WP system when on 512 RAM it can run many things without a lag.

      • Saad

        WP? Aint this running on Android 4.3? :P according to the specs mentioned in this article.

        • Geekpk

          well i was comparing WP with android.

          • Saad

            With a bare skeletal system of WP, it shouldn’t utilize over 256mb :P

            Anyway, I have no intention of sparking a WP/Android debate, WP is way too far immature than Android at the moment. It might catch up in future but till then, android wins …

      original version of this handset Social be4 comes with 1GB of ram. I don’t why they decreased it to 512MB.
