A look behind the production curtain of Armor 15
Looking at the overall video, the whole manufacturing process is quite smooth and efficient. Workers conscientiously assemble parts and test the phone. And the production process is also quite streamlined. After all, with 10 years of hard work, Ulefone has rich experience in manufacturing tri-proof professional smart devices. As one of the world’s leading rugged phone manufacturers, Ulefone is always strict in quality control.
Their workers in the factory have been professionally trained with the vision of providing reliable products and services to customers. Workers assemble motherboards, card slots, cameras, power supplies, and other product components. This step is entirely manual and requires special attention. When a complete mobile phone is assembled, a series of tests are carried out. Specifically about contacts, accuracy, touchscreen, operating system, camera replacement, induction, headphones, calls and much more.
According to Ulefone officials, the final stage of production is extensive durability testing for the Armor 15. Including touch screen test, pressing test, mini-drop endurance test, USB endurance test, the 1.5m multi-angle drop test, the crush test, -40℃-55℃ high/low temperature test, sand and dust test, tumble test, test waterproof to 1.5m in 30 minutes, 30g/60g/90g/130g ball pressure test or aging test. These tests are done to ensure the durability and toughness of the machine.
