The Unihertz Jelly Pro Android Phone Is Tiny Enough to Carry (& Fit) Anywhere!

When the phone is charging, the pressure sensitive home button has a ring around it that will glow red; once the phone is fully charged, it glows green. Unihertz has been pushing updates through regularly; the day I got it, there was an update, and today there was another one.

Everything you’re used to seeing on an Android phone is here — you can run the apps you love, and you can load it with your music; the speaker is surprisingly loud, too. It will track your steps (it’s tiny enough not to weigh you down while you’re jogging)…

… and you can even watch a movie on it.

Crazy, right? You can SnapChat, chat with friends, check your email … just about anything you can do on a larger phone, you can do on the Jelly Pro. Granted, the keyboard is tiny, so you may need to pay a little more attention to what you’re inputting, and you’ll likely fat-finger it at times, but the keyboard is surprisingly perceptive, and it’s not that hard to do what you need to do. So cute.

How’s the camera? Well, take a look …

And it can record 1080p video.

The Jelly Pro works with any GSM phone carrier — which in the US means anything but Verizon, Sprint, or any of their subsidiaries.

Just about anything your larger Android phone can do, the Unihertz Jelly pro can do. It’s just smaller, cuter, and more pocketable. Is this the phone that will replace your top of the line Android phone? No! But the Jelly Pro is the phone that you can take with you when you’re going out and you need something small. It’s the phone you can take to a music festival and not worry about losing. It’s the phone you can get in pearl white, sky blue, and space black for much less than the price of most non-flagship Android phones. That’s pretty cool.

The Unihertz Jelly Pro Phone retails for $129.99, and it is available directly from the manufacturer.

What I Like: It’s so tiny, but it’s fully functional; Android 7.0; It can run all the apps you love; You can use it to watch movies; Small enough to conveniently carry while exercising; It’s great for festivals, travel, or any other time you don’t want to carry your full-size, expensive smartphone

What Needs Improvement: Onscreen keyboard is tiny — expect fat-fingering; Don’t expect a flagship phone — enjoy it for what it is: Battery life isn’t great — keep in mind that it is a sub 1000mAh battery, not the 3000mAh typical to larger phones

    When I looked at this phone, all i could think is that this is the phone a spy uses to sneak in somewhere – like they would hide it up their !@!%# and then pull it out when they are in a pinch.

  2. How you use it is *completely* up to you! 😉
