Overview Features

Display and Build

UMi Plus features a Full HD 5.5 inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, 95% colour gamut, and pixel density of 400 pixels per inch. The screen is sharp and bright enough with good colour reproduction. It also has a wide viewing angle that retains the same picture quality when viewed either vertically or horizontally. The display's screen houses a 2.5D glass which makes for its smooth round edges and premuim look, and a Dinorex T2X-1 scratch/shock resistant glass that protects the display's screen from damages.

The UMi Plus's body is made of metal, and according to UMi, it is crafted out of Series 6000 solid Magnalium alloy that is used for aircraft hence, this gives the device a light weight and more durability. This smartphone is available in two colour options of gold and gray, it has a light weight of 185g and dimension of 75.0 x 155.0 x 8.8 mm. These all combine to give the UMi Plus a sleek design that feels amazing to touch and a solid build that can stand the adverse effect of contact with rough surfaces. 

The UMi Plus also features a fingerprint sensor that is positioned at its rear. This smart and fast sensor serves to enhance user security from the use of ordinary passwords or patterns. It can unlock the device in just 0.1 seconds and register up to five fingerprints in 0 seconds. It has a a chip-level security that encrypts and stores fingerprints. Instead of using passwords/patterns and memorizing them or changing them each time someone else other than those you authorize knows it, the fingerprint sensor eliminates the need to use either. 

Hardware and Software

UMi Plus is powered by a 64-bit Octacore Mediatek Helio P10 processor with a processing speed of 1.8GHz. This fast processor can outperform the Snapdragon 600 series CPU and some high end processors like the Snapdragon 801 chipset. It can ensure that operations are carried out fast and smoothly on this device, bringing about a high level of performance.

This smartphone also has 4GB of RAM, large enough to support multitasking of several apps and games; all done seamlessly. It also has an internal memory storage whose capacity is 32GB, and this storage is expandable via microSD card upto 256GB. With support for an external storage device, this  will make up for the moderate capacity of its Internal memory. The Plus also runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow which is reputably known to provide a good user Interface with its custom themes and wallpapers.


UMi Plus features a 13MP rear camera with SAMSUNG®3L8 sensor, F/2.0 aperture, 5-element with anti-glare coating, and a phase detection autofocus with a focus speed of 0.15 second. Other features of this camera include dual-LED flash for capturing in low light conditions, dual image signal processors (ISP) for post-processing photos, panoroma, goetagging and 1080p HD video recording to make videos with great quality. 

On its front camera, is a GalaxyCore®GC500 sensor whose resolution is 5MP, with F/2.8 aperture and pixel size of 1.12μm.  According to UMi, the camera app of this smartphone includes a Pro-Photo mode that allows users to manually adjust the camera's properties like exposure speed, exposure value, saturation, brightness, contrast, focal point, and white balance. With both cameras, it is expected that images should have a more accurate exposure and a better color dynamic range.

Battery and Connectivity

Like the Gionee M5 Mini, the UMi Plus has a battery capacity of 4000mAh. On full charge, this battery should last for 2 days on moderate usage and can support up to 13 to 15 days standby time. According to UMi, this smartphone's processor will ensure that there is a balance between performance, heat and energy consumption, thereby bringing about efficient utilization of the battery's power. There is also support for  fast charging with its quick charge technology and USB Type-C port, where a 30 minute charge can give about a day's use.

The UMi Plus is a dual SIM smartphone that supports two SIMs with Dual standby. One can either use the second SIM slot for a microSD card or a SIM card. Connectivity options of this smartphone include 2G, 3G, 4G, Bluetooth, WIFI, WIFI hotspot, GPS, and USB Type C. Its sensors include accelerometer, proximity, ambient light, hall, compass, gyroscope and fingerprint sensors.

Tech Lass's Verdict:

The UMi Plus as a smartphone with high-end specs and a price that is lower than most of its competitors, would definitely be a good choice for anyone looking for a budget friendly device that still has great capabilities. But then, some people may find it hard trusting the brand's name since it is still new and uncommon compared to other popular brands in the smartphone market. That notwithstanding, in terms of cost, one can still choose this device over its rivals.
