Reviews for the UMI Z

80% UMI Z Smartphone
Source: IT Pro Portal English
It’s a toss between this one and the UMi Plus E. We’d still prefer the latter because of the storage capacity and RAM. Shame about the lack of NFC but at least it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

80% UMI Z review: First Helio X27 phone is fast and great for selfies
Source: PC Advisor English
The UMI Z is an excellent-value Android phone with a large battery, a decent screen, the most powerful MediaTek processor you can get and a very good selfie camera. Unfortunately the primary camera doesn't quite live up, but it's otherwise difficult to fault. With full UK 4G connectivity it's a great buy.

ARM Mali-T880 MP4: Mobile graphics solution for tablets and smartphones, which can be found in ARM SoCs like the HiSilicon Kirin 950. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


76.8%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
