MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

For $140 or ₦43,000, the 64GB variant looks like really good value for money. There are not many smartphones with 4GB RAM at this price point. The Helio P23 chipset is fairly decent, and the 4150mAh battery provides ample battery life. And with an extensive range of LTE bands, you are less likely to be unable to access 4G services on your favourite network.

Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is recommendation that we make based on our evaluation the specs of the device. It is a general guide designed to help you understand how much value a smartphone offers for its price.

  1. I bought the Umidigi A7 Pro 64gb version and there is no real Instructions or User Manual only some very “thin” details. I suppose this is ok if you have had this type of phone previously but I have not and some proper guidance would be most useful. A link to download will be good.
    Thank you.
