UMI Plus Smartphone Review
Plus size, small price. Budget Chinese smartphones are looking and performing better every year. The UMI Plus is no exception at the cost of a larger form factor and subpar camera.

Budget smartphones are packing more power than ever and are well on their way to being as feature-heavy as pricier mainstream alternatives. The UMI Plus is such an example and is essentially the existing UMI Max with slightly upgraded hardware and features to justify the $20 USD higher price tag. Nonetheless, the Plus sounds like a bargain at just $170 USD with its mainstream Helio P10 SoC, large 5.5-inch 1080p display, high capacity 4000 mAh non-removable battery, and roomy 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM.
Immediate competitors include the Oukitel U7 Plus and the ZTE Blade A452, but even these 5-inch smartphones are using lower resolution 720p screens compared to the FHD UMI. It's not until the $200 to $300 USD range where smartphones begin carrying similar specifications to the UMI Plus such as the Huawei G8, Moto X Play, and Honor 5C.
We recommend checking out our existing review on the UMI Max since the Plus sports nearly all of its features and hardware.
