There are no geosynchronous GPS satellites not above Russia? And none of them don't go above Russia? What country invented GLONASS? What country mostly uses GLONASS?

Neither GPS nor GLONASS satellites are in geostationary orbits. Even though they are moving they are arranged such that at any point in time there are at least 6 GPS and 4 GLONASS satellites visible from any point on Earth. As for users, while Russia created GLONASS it has only recently been made publicly available for civilian use whereas GPS has been available since the 1980's. Thus consumer GPS devices far predate and far outnumber GLONASS devices. In fact you'll have a hard time finding a GLONASS only device that isn't made for the Russian or associated militaries.

Did Russia use GPS before GLONASS was deployed or invented? Why did Russia invent GLONASS?

Both GPS and GLONASS began development during the Cold War in the 1970's and were originally military only technologies. GPS began limited civilian access in the 1980's with a restricted signal that severely limited accuracy. This was lifted in 2000 thus allowing unhindered public access. Similarly GLONASS also allowed restricted civilian access with limited accuracy until lifted in 2007. Because of this among other things, consumer GLONASS devices were measurably worse compared to GPS devices and never really became commercially available, even in Russia. What changed was in 2011, Russia passed an import ban on any GPS device that did not also support GLONASS. And as a result nearly every mobile device now supports both networks.

So I decided to buy this phone, after walking around with my iPhone 5s for almost five years. It still works, I even replaced the battery.

 

Despite the Ulefone Power 5s having only 4gb ram and being mediocre compared to other phones today, upgrading here improves everything.

The camera is better, the screen is bigger, it’s not so small in my hands, and of course, going from a 1560mAh battery to this chinese beast will be a heavenly step up.

 

What I want to see however, is better batteries. Like, more capacity in the same weight and size. Imagine the iPhone Xs with a 13000mAh battery, but it weighs the same, and it is just as slim as it is now. 

Week long batteries in the slim phones we all love and have.

 

PS: I used to have my iPhone 5s encased in a Lunatik Taktik Extreme. Thus I am not too worried avout the size and weight of the Ulefone.

And I want a 6 Litre engine that fits in a gallon milk bag.

Your iPhone's battery ain't got nothing on this 13,000 mAh phone.

It's 120-240v adapter, so all you need is one of the plug adapters. :)

The Asus Zenfone Max Pro has 5.000 mah. It lasts two days with regular use. I know a user who is very happy with it.

Let me clear some things up for everyone here. 

 

I've been using Ulefone power 5 for more then half a year now. The phone is a beast. Only problem I have with it is the weight. After watching videos on that phone for a long time my hands start to hurt and it just feels heavy sometimes. You do get used to that after some time. Before that I had a small, slim phone and I hated checking my pocket for it every few minutes because I couldn't feel it. This phone requires you to use a belt so your pants don't disappear (I'm serious).

On the hardware side it suits my needs. I don't play games much on it, I usually browse reddit and watch youtube videos and for those things this phone is amazing. I love not having to charge it every week. You don't know what you're missing unless you have a phone with a big battery. Also as for ram, there is enough of it. 6GB in power 5 and 4GB in 5s version.

 

That's about it. If you want to know other things about the phone I can answer it. Also, once you get a phone with huge battery there is no going back

I agree on your points here.

I recieved the Power 5s a week ago, and boy oh boy, is it an upgrade from my iPhone 5s.
Added a 256gb sd card, moved all the apps over, etc. I love it.

@ReaperHR, how have you dealt with the lack of an audio jack on this battery beast?
