Uhans U200 review

The Chinese company Uhans ("U" - from the English "you" - "you", and "hans" - short for the word "hands" - "hands", that is, something like "we value our users who holding smartphones”) introduced a device called the U200. We will not go into technical specifications, since they are typical for an inexpensive device, but we will dwell on the materials in more detail. The fact is that the U200 is made of a massive metal bar, the front panel is protected by tempered glass, but the most interesting thing is that the back cover is covered with genuine ox leather. On this topic, they already joked on Twitter: “Did the ox have a daddy of a crocodile?” Indeed, the texture of the back of the device looks more like crocodile skin than bull skin. In general, if you look at Wikipedia, then the ox is a castrated male cattle. It can feel a little strange, realizing that you are holding the skin of a castrated animal in your hands ... Yes, guys? :)

Such a miracle costs only $120 - about 8,500 rubles.

Design, dimensions, controls

Chinese manufacturers decided to make something similar to Vertu, but since the budgets were not so large, the Uhans U200 was the result. The dimensions of this gadget are quite impressive, if we are talking about a screen diagonal of 5 inches - 147x76x12.5 mm, and it weighs 207 grams. Despite all this, the U200 lies perfectly in the hand, for a large male palm it will be just right.

The front panel is protected by durable tempered glass. During testing, nothing terrible happened to him. There is an oleophobic coating, but some resources claim that it is not. It is present in my sample. I liked the quality: although the prints are noticeable, they are easily erased, and the finger glides easily.

Most of the side faces are a thick metal frame (brushed aluminum). The layer thickness can reach 4 mm. There is a plastic frame between the case and the metal.

Right and left - rubber inserts with patterns. Top and bottom are similar, but framed with matte plastic.

On the reverse side there is a metal plaque with six corners and a bright red plastic insert in the center in the form of a jackdaw. It protrudes above the body by about a couple of millimeters, supposedly held on by rivets. The inscription "UHANS" is engraved on the top.

Bottom you can see a chrome-plated "iron" arc, in the center of which there is a hole for the speaker.

Well, and most importantly - the material of the lid. This is genuine ox skin, at least according to the official source. I have already spoken about the texture above in the introduction.

In addition, the company's website says that the Uhans U200 tolerates moisture. However, you should not rely on a certain degree of protection, despite the fact that any device works without problems in a humid environment, for example, lying in the bathroom when you take a shower (naturally, without immersing it in water and without direct splashing on it) , or when your hands are just wet.

In general, I personally like the design and execution, although many argue that it looks a bit "collective farm". I can tell you frankly: many Vertu devices also look too simple and sometimes awkward, but they cost several orders of magnitude more expensive than the U200 (by the way, the performance characteristics of British company phones are often much worse than Chinese ones).

On the top of the front of the gadget there is a camera, sensors, an indicator of missed events and a speech speaker. It sounds clear, the interlocutor is heard legibly, the volume is average. Below the screen are standard Android buttons painted in silver.

Bottom - microphone, top under rubber plugs (probably over time they will loosen and come off) - headphone jack and microUSB.

On the right is a chrome-plated metal octagonal power button, and on the left are two separate volume keys of the same type. Unusual.

On the back is a camera, flash and speaker.

Oddly enough, the case is collapsible. The cover is removed by prying it from the cutout at the bottom. The socket is thick and durable (plastic on the bottom, leather on the top). Below it are two slots for SIM cards in mini and micro formats, as well as a slot for a microSD memory card.

Display

This product uses a 5-inch screen. The physical size is 62x110 mm, the frame is 16 mm on the top, 21 mm on the bottom, and about 7 mm on the right and left. There is an anti-reflective coating, which is quite effective.

Uhans U200

Uhans U200 display resolution is HD, i.e. 720x1280 pixels, aspect ratio is 16:9, density is 293 pixels per inch. Matrix - IPS without air gap.

The brightness of the white light is about 370 cd/m2, the brightness of the white color is 0.6. The contrast ratio is just over 600:1.

The matrix pleased with pure colors, maximum viewing angles, good backlight brightness, good contrast. For a device for 9,000 rubles, the screen quality is excellent.

Battery

This model uses a 3500 mAh removable lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery. There is no official data on opening hours.

In my conditions, the Uhans U200 “lived” for about a day and a half (or a full day at maximum load): for the whole time, about an hour of calls, 7-8 hours of 3G / 4G, 10 hours of Wi-Fi, camera - 1 hour, about 2 hours of listening to music, 4 hours of screen glow.

I noticed a little oddity: the battery is evenly discharged to about 10 percent, and then cut off abruptly, after turning on the screen displays 1 percent.

The kit includes a 1 A AC adapter. The gadget is charged from it in 4 hours, so I advise you to purchase a more powerful power supply.

Communications

The device works not only in 2G/3G networks (GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, WCDMA 850/2100 MHz), but also in 4G CAT 4 (FDD-LTE 1800/1900/2300/2600 MHz).

There is no NFC and GLONASS chip, the rest is standard for any Android smartphone: two SIM cards, GPS (sensitivity is slightly below average), Wi-Fi b / g / n, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 with OTG support.

Uhans U200

Memory and memory card

This uses 2 GB LPDDR3 800 MHz RAM. The built-in Flash memory is 16 GB - as it is written on the site, but in reality in my model it was 8 GB and a little less than 7 GB is available. Naturally, there is a slot for a memory card (supports up to 200 GB).

Cameras

Traditionally, there are two camera modules: 13 MP Sony IMX 164 (officially stated that aperture is F2.0, but applications say F1.8) and 5 MP OmniVision (aperture F1.8). There is one LED flash. Unfortunately, the permissions are interpolated. In this case, 13 MP is 8 MP, and 5 MP is 2 MP.

The main problem with the camera is that everything is bad with its dynamic range: the frames come out either too white or dark. The detail is average, the picture is mostly soapy, the white balance sometimes “jumps”. There is a plus from a large aperture - with LLD (insufficient lighting conditions), the image is quite readable, the colors are natural, the detail is not disturbed.

Focusing is fast, but extremely inaccurate, especially when shooting macro: the device can “rest against infinity” and refuse to focus. Most often this happens with NLD.

The device records video in resolutions up to HD at 30 fps. The quality is similar to a photo - zero dynamic range.

The selfie camera takes pictures with a wide viewing angle. Selfies come out decent. Clips - 640x480 pixels at 30 fps.

Performance

The device is powered by the Taiwanese MediaTek MT6735 chipset. This is a 64-bit SoC that contains 4 ARM Cortex-53 cores, the manufacturing process is 28 nm, the clock frequency of each is up to 1.5 GHz. The graphics used are Mali T-720 with support for Open GL ES 3.0 and Open CL 1.2 API.

If we talk about software optimization, then everything is fine with Uhans: the interface works smoothly, without any hint of slowdowns, applications start quickly. With toys, too, everything is more or less normal, but you should not count on the maximum settings and 60 FPS.

It should be noted that the MT6735 chip was created as an inexpensive solution for use in devices that can operate on various networks. Therefore, its main feature is LTE, and not high performance in games.

Software platform

The novelty operates on a relatively fresh version of the Google Android 5.1 operating system, which is already good. The shell is proprietary, but it differs from the “bare” Android only in the design of the icons.

In the settings there are things like:

  • Smart Motion - quick answer, quick call, switch to silent mode, and so on;
  • Gesture - various toggles and on by swiping your hand over the screen, as well as creating a screenshot if you swipe three fingers across the display from top to bottom;
  • Wake gesture - wake up the phone on a double tap, slide up and down, launch the camera (drawing the letter "C" on the locked screen) and similar functions.

Conclusion

In this case, everything is very simple: if you want to make a small wow effect on others, be sure to take a closer look at the Uhans U200. And even when you don't care about looks, but need a solid and reliable device in terms of build, again, this is the U200 from Uhans.

However, if Hair Mousse in Uganda you are not interested in the above, technical specifications for 8,000-9,000 rubles for this gadget quite good: a high-quality screen, 2 GB of RAM, a capacious battery, two SIM cards and an LTE connection.

Among the shortcomings, perhaps, it is worth noting the following: a completely unknown brand so far (you can expect anything from such companies - both buggy firmware and defective devices), a weak processor, average cameras.

There are practically no direct competitors with a leather cover, if we don't talk about quite expensive devices like LG G4, Asus Zoom and luxury ones.

Conclusion

In this case, everything is very simple: if you want to make a small wow effect on others, be sure to take a closer look at the Uhans U200. And even when you don't care about looks, but need a solid and reliable device in terms of build, again, this is the U200 from Uhans.

However, if Hair Mousse in Uganda you are not interested in the above, technical specifications for 8,000-9,000 rubles for this gadget quite good: a high-quality screen, 2 GB of RAM, a capacious battery, two SIM cards and an LTE connection.

Among the shortcomings, perhaps, it is worth noting the following: a completely unknown brand so far (you can expect anything from such companies - both buggy firmware and defective devices), a weak processor, average cameras.

There are practically no direct competitors with a leather cover, if we don't talk about quite expensive devices like LG G4, Asus Zoom and luxury ones.

Uhans U200 review

The Chinese company Uhans ("U" - from the English "you" - "you", and "hans" - short for the word "hands" - "hands", that is, something like "we value our users who holding smartphones”) introduced a device called the U200. We will not go into technical specifications, since they are typical for an inexpensive device, but we will dwell on the materials in more detail. The fact is that the U200 is made of a massive metal bar, the front panel is protected by tempered glass, but the most interesting thing is that the back cover is covered with genuine ox leather. On this topic, they already joked on Twitter: “Did the ox have a daddy of a crocodile?” Indeed, the texture of the back of the device looks more like crocodile skin than bull skin. In general, if you look at Wikipedia, then the ox is a castrated male cattle. It can feel a little strange, realizing that you are holding the skin of a castrated animal in your hands ... Yes, guys? :)

Such a miracle costs only $120 - about 8,500 rubles.

Design, dimensions, controls

Chinese manufacturers decided to make something similar to Vertu, but since the budgets were not so large, the Uhans U200 was the result. The dimensions of this gadget are quite impressive, if we are talking about a screen diagonal of 5 inches - 147x76x12.5 mm, and it weighs 207 grams. Despite all this, the U200 lies perfectly in the hand, for a large male palm it will be just right.

The front panel is protected by durable tempered glass. During testing, nothing terrible happened to him. There is an oleophobic coating, but some resources claim that it is not. It is present in my sample. I liked the quality: although the prints are noticeable, they are easily erased, and the finger glides easily.

Most of the side faces are a thick metal frame (brushed aluminum). The layer thickness can reach 4 mm. There is a plastic frame between the case and the metal.

Right and left - rubber inserts with patterns. Top and bottom are similar, but framed with matte plastic.

On the reverse side there is a metal plaque with six corners and a bright red plastic insert in the center in the form of a jackdaw. It protrudes above the body by about a couple of millimeters, supposedly held on by rivets. The inscription "UHANS" is engraved on the top.

Bottom you can see a chrome-plated "iron" arc, in the center of which there is a hole for the speaker.

Well, and most importantly - the material of the lid. This is genuine ox skin, at least according to the official source. I have already spoken about the texture above in the introduction.

In addition, the company's website says that the Uhans U200 tolerates moisture. However, you should not rely on a certain degree of protection, despite the fact that any device works without problems in a humid environment, for example, lying in the bathroom when you take a shower (naturally, without immersing it in water and without direct splashing on it) , or when your hands are just wet.

In general, I personally like the design and execution, although many argue that it looks a bit "collective farm". I can tell you frankly: many Vertu devices also look too simple and sometimes awkward, but they cost several orders of magnitude more expensive than the U200 (by the way, the performance characteristics of British company phones are often much worse than Chinese ones).

On the top of the front of the gadget there is a camera, sensors, an indicator of missed events and a speech speaker. It sounds clear, the interlocutor is heard legibly, the volume is average. Below the screen are the standard Android buttons painted in silver.

Bottom - microphone, top under rubber plugs (probably over time they will loosen and come off) - headphone jack and microUSB.

On the right is a chrome-plated metal octagonal power button, and on the left are two separate volume keys of the same type. Unusual.

On the back is a camera, flash and speaker.

Oddly enough, the case is collapsible. The cover is removed by prying it from the cutout at the bottom. The socket is thick and durable (plastic on the bottom, leather on the top). Below it are two slots for SIM cards in mini and micro formats, as well as a slot for a microSD memory card.

Display

This product uses a 5-inch screen. The physical size is 62x110 mm, the frame is 16 mm on the top, 21 mm on the bottom, and about 7 mm on the right and left. There is an anti-reflective coating, which is quite effective.

Uhans U200 display resolution is HD, i.e. 720x1280 pixels, aspect ratio is 16:9, density is 293 pixels per inch. Matrix - IPS without air gap.

The brightness of the white light is about 370 cd/m2, the brightness of the white color is 0.6. The contrast ratio is just over 600:1.

The matrix pleased with pure colors, maximum viewing angles, good backlight brightness, good contrast. For a device for 9,000 rubles, the screen quality is excellent.

Battery

This model uses a 3500 mAh removable lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery. There is no official data on opening hours.

In my conditions, the Uhans U200 “lived” for about a day and a half (or a full day at maximum load): for the whole time, about an hour of calls, 7-8 hours of 3G / 4G, 10 hours of Wi-Fi, camera - 1 hour, about 2 hours of listening to music, 4 hours of screen glow.

I noticed a little oddity: the battery is evenly discharged to about 10 percent, and then cut off abruptly, after turning on the screen displays 1 percent.

The kit includes a 1 A AC adapter. The gadget is charged from it in 4 hours, so I advise you to purchase a more powerful power supply.

Communications

The device works not only in 2G/3G networks (GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, WCDMA 850/2100 MHz), but also in 4G CAT 4 (FDD-LTE 1800/1900/2300/2600 MHz).

There is no NFC and GLONASS chip, the rest is standard for any Android smartphone: two SIM cards, GPS (sensitivity is slightly below average), Wi-Fi b / g / n, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 with OTG support.

Memory and memory card

This uses 2 GB LPDDR3 800 MHz RAM. The built-in Flash memory is 16 GB - as it is written on the site, but in reality in my model it was 8 GB and a little less than 7 GB is available. Naturally, there is a slot for a memory card (supports up to 200 GB).

Cameras

Traditionally, there are two camera modules: 13 MP Sony IMX 164 (officially stated that aperture is F2.0, but applications say F1.8) and 5 MP OmniVision (aperture F1.8). There is one LED flash. Unfortunately, the permissions are interpolated. In this case, 13 MP is 8 MP, and 5 MP is 2 MP.

The main problem with the camera is that everything is bad with its dynamic range: the frames come out either too white or dark. The detail is average, the picture is mostly soapy, the white balance sometimes “jumps”. There is a plus from a large aperture - with LLD (insufficient lighting conditions), the image is quite readable, the colors are natural, the detail is not disturbed.

Focusing is fast, but extremely inaccurate, especially when shooting macro: the device can “rest against infinity” and refuse to focus. Most often this happens with NLD.

The device records video in resolutions up to HD at 30 fps. The quality is similar to a photo - zero dynamic range.

The selfie camera takes pictures with a wide viewing angle. Selfies come out decent. Clips - 640x480 pixels at 30 fps.

Performance

The device is powered by the Taiwanese MediaTek MT6735 chipset. This is a 64-bit SoC that contains 4 ARM Cortex-53 cores, the manufacturing process is 28 nm, the clock frequency of each is up to 1.5 GHz. The graphics used are Mali T-720 with support for Open GL ES 3.0 and Open CL 1.2 API.

If we talk about software optimization, then everything is fine with Uhans: the interface works smoothly, without any hint of slowdowns, applications start quickly. With toys, too, everything is more or less normal, but you should not count on the maximum settings and 60 FPS.

It should be noted that the MT6735 chip was created as an inexpensive solution for use in devices that can operate on various networks. Therefore, its main feature is LTE, and not high performance in games.

Multimedia

The music player is standard. The volume of the speaker is high (on some ringtones it just yells), the quality is slightly above average, but there are not enough bass notes.

The headphone volume is slightly above average. The quality is normal for such devices. We must listen. I like it. There is a "Sound Enhancement" in the settings, but I do not advise you to touch these parameters - it will only get worse.
