Our UMi Plus first impressions here at Mobility Arena are very good ones. On the inside of the UMI Plus is an octa-core 2.0 Helio P10 processor and 4GB of RAM to power the 5.5-inch display and all that goes with it. If you are wondering about battery life, you do not feel worried once you know that it has a 4,000 mAh battery built in (with fast charge). You can examine the full specifications HERE.
UMi Plus First Impressions
The UMi Plus is a smartphone that has us charmed. It has a refined metal build. The 2.5D curved screen is also a joy to touch. Audio alerts and notifications are also tastefully done. And it feels solid in the hand. Have a look at our UMi Plus unboxing photos if you haven’t yet.
The UMi Plus runs pure Android 6 Marshmallow and so has no bloatware. This is Android OS the way the gods decreed it. UMi says that the version 7 Nougat update will arrive for the Plus in December 2016. Not bad. We look forward to that.
It feels smooth in everyday usage and there haven’t been any unexpected niggles so far. In-call audio is superb! The conversation is clear and deep.
One area where the UMi Plus seems to be very average is the loudspeaker audio quality. It is loud but it isn’t of the great quality that we would drool over. Ah; but every Achilles has his heel.
We know that benchmark tests do not tell all the story about a device’s abilities. In certain cases, real life performance is not reflected in benchmark scores. Still, some of you need your benchmark tests fix. We happily oblige. Have a look at the results we got below.
UMI Plus Performance Tests Results
- AnTuTu: 49,375
- Geekbench: Single-Core 737 / Multi-Core 2,616
- Quadrant: 22,814
Not bad. We were expecting slightly better results, especially because of the 4GB of RAM. But then again, the large 5.5-inch display is another factor in the equation. Overall, the benchmark results are good.
The UMi Plus’ main camera is a 13 megapixel autofocus unit with a Samsung 3L8 sensor and dual LED flash. We have shot some comparison photos with the TECNO Phantom 6 and Lumia 950. Expect the post soon.
We like this big guy already. A lot. But we will wait to give a final verdict in our full review. Please ask us any questions you may have about the UMi Plus in the meantime.
