by PhoneRadar Bureau 7

UMI Mobile, a mobile manufacturer, based out of China is known for its high-end specifications handset with affordable price tag. Over the past couple of times, the brand has now and then launched eye-grabbing handsets. Their latest handset, UMI Max is one such device that many smartphone enthusiasts would like to get their hands on.

In this post, we would be covering the top features of the UMI Max Smartphone. So, below you can find different sections where we showcase the top features of the UMI Max smartphone. Let’s dive in, shall we. Note that it is the price at $169.99 and is available for pre-sale on various international retailers. The pricing is valid until August 31st as per company records on their website.

Design

Most handsets in the price range won’t offer anything remotely that Umi Max has to offer. It has a nearly perfect all-metal body design. As far as the aesthetics are concerned, it has a fantastic construction. The elegant sheen of metal makes it for a stylish and pretty attractive design. The company claims that they have preserved the authentic texture of the anodised and sandblasted metal. As they share, there is no additional painting done for looks and shiny finish. It is just what it is. The UMI Max is a stylish statement that asks to be flaunted in public.

UMI Max - Display

Display

The brand uses Sharp display panel on their UMI Max Smartphone. The 5.5-inch 1080p display is as vivid as any screen with this size and resolution can get. The Sharp panel features a high colour saturation display with 95% NTSC gamut. There is claimed a 17% better viewing angle compared to average 1080 display. It may not be AMOLED display, but it indeed offers vivid colours, even under direct sunlight. Additionally, there is a protection of curved 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection from scratches.

Hardware

Regarding hardware specifications inside the device, it is fitted with a MediaTek Helio P10 processor, which is an Octa-core chipset. It is widely popular among mid-range as a powerful and yet power efficient SoC. The company doesn’t expect less than anything marvel performance than it’s UMI Max. The chipset is accompanied by a 3GB of RAM and uses Samsung’s eMMC 5.1 flash storage, which offer faster transfer of data. Thus, making it load apps quicker than lower grade flash storage. Moreover, do make a note that its storage capacity can be expanded up 256GB, which is just gigantic. There is a fingerprint sensor on the back side of the device, which claims to unlock the device within 0.1 seconds.

Software

As far as the software experience is concerned, the device is said to offer pure Android stock user interface. The brand touts that it has an Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, which is the latest stable release available for mass handsets. We don’t expect Android 7.0 Nougat to be available pretty soon for this, but this is pretty fantastic for the price it comes. There won’t be any bloatware, which is a good thing for pure Android enthusiasts.

Camera

The camera department packs Panasonic’s 13-megapixel high-speed camera, which is a faster shooter than your average 13MP module. The brand claims that its users can blindly take shots, and it would be quicker and better than most 13MP modules out there. It might be over exaggeration, but nonetheless. The 13MP rear module from Panasonic seems pretty good deal here. According to the brand, the module on rear takes approximately 0.5 seconds to launch, 0.3 seconds to focus and have zero shutter lag.

These are the top features of the UMI Max Smartphone. We felt it is a right handset for someone who have a tight budget but are looking for best-in-class features on their next handset.

  • They named it Max but it has 5.5 inch display! Looks awesome at this price. Umi always come up with stunning devices. But I won’t prefer buying it unless it has presence in India!!

  • Nebu Cherian

    It’s good to see Chinese manufacturers going with the stock Android ui, excellent price to spec ratio, good design can’t complain anything about the device….but the brand has a long way to go like more service centres and after sales support if they could do it right unlike other manufacturers it’s a great device to have.
