On the right side of the device, the power button and the volume rockers are aligned side by side, whereas the left edge features a customizable button and also the SIM tray. On the bottom side of the device, there are the 3.5mm audio jack and also the USB-C connective is placed in between the speaker and microphone grill.
The smartphone is well rounded and its metal frame is kind of plain with slight chamfered edges. Overall, the UMi MAX features a nice style and feels plenty sort of a premium smartphone.
Umi MAX 4G PHABLET has fitted an SHARP-made 5.5-inch LCD within the smartphone, which offers Full HD (1920×1080) resolution and a constituent density of 401 pixels per inch. The display quality of the screen is kind of smart and has poor sunlight visibility. On some occasions, the automated brightness wasn’t up to the mark, however, setting the brightness to concerning 40% was spare in most lighting things.
The camera quality on the UMI MAX is not the greatest; however the 13-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture will manage to capture good pictures in daylight.
The UMI Max comes with the Helio P10 octa-core chipset from MediaTek, that may be a decent system-on-chip for budget devices and most of the devices during this recent time. For daily tasks, the chipset is nice and that can handle games like Asphalt eight and Dead Trigger very while.
It scores 741 on Single score and 2409 on Multi core test for our Geekbench test.
The battery scores yet one more field for the Umi MAX, because the device lasts for a very long-lasting on one charge. It has 4000 mAh massive battery. It conjointly supports a Qualcomm quick charging feature. However, the turbocharger isn’t shipped with the device. I used a UMI Super quick charger with the device and managed to get a full charge in concerning one and 0.5 hours.
The UMI MAX 4G Phablet is a decent smart phone with no nonsense options. I definitely suggest it to somebody searching for a device that handles traditional usage and has a number of the trendy features like a fingerprint detector, USB-C and a premium metal style.
