UMI Plus smartphone review

The Chinese company UMI has another not very expensive smartphone with good technical parameters. Actually, you could have already familiarized yourself with them a little higher. Highlights: Rugged 6000-series aluminum body, high-capacity battery Game. at 4000 mAh, a smart Helio P10 chip, 4 gigabytes of RAM and an excellent Sharp matrix with FullHD resolution.

At the moment, the gadget is easy to find from $180, in rubles it is a little less than 12,000 rubles.

Design, dimensions, controls

In my subjective opinion, smartphones with UMI Plus design will be released for about another six months, then a new wave of copying the appearance of each other will begin. What is this about? As always, 2.5D type glass (like, because it is not quite curved glass, like on the iPhone), a metal case with two plastic inserts, and even not matching in color, large dimensions and weight.

UMI Plus

Despite the fact that the device as a whole is made with high quality, it still feels like a budget solution: clumsy inserts with stripes, a slightly clumsy installation of the SIM extractor, a mismatch between the color of the case and the color of the inserts. In addition, I personally did not like the coating of the case: the surface is rough, there are scuffs on it (for example, the black plastic holder in the box left dark marks on the sides of the gadget). That is, if compared with Meizu devices, the latter has more pleasant materials.

There are two body colors - gray and gold.

The dimensions of the Umi Plus are not the most compact - 155 x 75 x 8.8 mm, it also weighs quite a lot - 185 grams. In the hand lies well due to the sloping edges, does not slip.

The quality of the camera as a whole satisfied me: it accurately reproduces colors, not the lowest dynamic range, as a rule, good sharpness (sometimes soapy due to lens contamination). The focus speed is decent, the accuracy is high - rarely makes mistakes.

Noise, alas, can be noticed even during the day, but the algorithms are already to blame. At night, the picture is not bad, although the sharpness decreases significantly.

The front camera shoots well, it's quite suitable for selfies. A little lacking in sharpness.

The device shoots video as standard for similar devices - FullHD 30 frames. The quality is average, the sharp transition of the exposure from light to dark and vice versa is annoying.

The device is fast, not slow, without micro-lags and "friezes" of the shell. "Pulls" almost all toys at maximum settings. In the benchmark, Antutu scores less than 50,000 points. The result, frankly, is average, I would like it to be around 70,000 points.

  • GSM: 850(B5)/900(B8)/1800(B3)/1900(B2)
  • WCDMA: 850(B5)/900(B8)/1900(B2)/2100(B1)
  • LTE FDD: 2100(B1)/1800(B3)/2600(B7)/800(B20)

The gadget supports two SIM cards, both can be used in LTE. Radio module one.

There is no NFC chip, the rest is standard for any Android smartphone: GPS, Wi-Fi b/g/n (Dual Band), Bluetooth 4.1.

Memory and memory card

This uses 4 GB of RAM. Built-in Flash-memory 32 GB, about 24 GB is allocated for installing applications and storing data. The read and write speed is very decent for such a gadget. Supports microSD cards up to 256 GB.

Cameras

The main module belongs to Samsung, it is 13 MP and has phase detection autofocus. The aperture of the lens is f = 2.4, which is actually not very good, the aperture ratio will be low, that is, at night you will have to “squeeze all the juice” with shutter speed. Sensor size 1/3''.

Front-mounted GalaxyCore GC5005, 5 MP sensor without autofocus, aperture f=2.0.

The quality of the camera as a whole satisfied me: it accurately reproduces colors, not the lowest dynamic range, as a rule, good sharpness (sometimes soapy due to lens contamination). The focus speed is decent, the accuracy is high - rarely makes mistakes.

Noise, alas, can be noticed even during the day, but the algorithms are already to blame. At night, the picture is not bad, although the sharpness decreases significantly.

The front camera shoots well, it's quite suitable for selfies. A little lacking in sharpness.

The device shoots video as standard for similar devices - FullHD 30 frames. The quality is average, the sharp transition of the exposure from light to dark and vice versa is annoying.

Performance and OS

The UMI Plus smartphone is equipped with the popular MediaTek chipset - Helio P10 (MT6755): 28 nm process technology, 65-bit, 8 Cortex-A53 cores, clock frequency up to 2 GHz. ARM Mali-T860 (MP2 700MHz) is responsible for the graphics.

The device is fast, not slow, without micro-lags and "friezes" of the shell. "Pulls" almost all toys at maximum settings. In the benchmark, Antutu scores less than 50,000 points. The result, frankly, is average, I would like it to be around 70,000 points.

The device is running the Google Android operating system version 6.0. New firmware often “arrives” on UMI devices, correcting minor flaws.

Multimedia

The music player is standard. The volume of the speaker is slightly above average, the quality is extremely simple, the sound is flat and inexpressive.

The manufacturer claims that there is an Awinic AW8738 amplifier inside the gadget. I don’t know what he is doing there, but the sound in the headphones is normal: yes, the quality is not bad, but I can’t say that I heard something new and bright. There is also practically no information on the chip on the Web.

Conclusion

The smartphone is almost a complete copy of the UMI Max device, the difference, in fact, is only in the amount of memory. Well, the cameras have become a little better.

The UMI Plus device is now easy to buy for 12,000 - 13,000 rubles. In principle, the technical parameters are not bad, the screen and memory speed are especially pleasing: fast, smart and on a large display. Everything else is plus or minus the same as other vendors of this class.
