UMIDIGI One and UMIDIGI One Pro – Price and Features You Should Consider
UMIDIGI's new Budget Phones offer NFC and Wireless Charging on the Cheap!
If there’s one thing people get really excited about these days it’s new phones, but what gets them super-excited is New Phones with Great Specs, Lots of Features and Great Value. UMIDIGI is a phone brand that’s had its ups and down, but recently they are doing really well and their new phones UMIDIGI One and UMIDIGI One Pro offer the right specs, premium features like NFC and Wireless Charging, looks and low price to compete with Xiaomi and Huawei. Let me share the highlights of both UMIDIGI ONE and UMIDIGI One Pro.
UMIDIGI One – You Won’t Believe It’s $139!
UMIDIGI One for starters is just $139! While the price is low, what really matters is what it gets you and UMIDIGI One gets you a whole lot for that!
$139 gets you a 5.99 18:7.9 HD+ Display,
16nm Helio P23 2.0GHz Octa-Core CPU with 4GB RAM,
a really decent 12MP Rear camera with f/2.0 and 1.25 microns large pixel size from OV, 16MP selfie cam
and naturally, Android 8.1 Oreo Stock ROM with GLOBAL 4G,
a Side Fingerprint Scanner, Stereo Speakers,
Face ID and a decent 3550mAh Battery. The One comes in two colour flavours – Twilight and Carbon Fiber.
UMIDIGI One Pro – NFC and Wireless Charging Below $200!
You want features, Ah? Well, UMIDIGI One Pro offers Wireless Charging, Fast Charging, NFC Chip and 32GB more Storage over the ONE for just $30 more! There isn’t a phone on the market which offers NFC and Wireless Charging at this lowe price!
UMIDIGI One and UMIDIGI One Pro Summary – What Can Go Wrong?
Sometimes the value is just too good to be true. This is what most of you are thinking about UMIDIGI One and UMIDIGI One Pro, but bare in mind, Xiaomi just released Poco F1 with Snapdragon $845 for $350 and nobody thought this phone and price to be possible! People don’t realize that features like NFC and Wireless Charging cost manufacturers 1-2$. Companies like Sony and Samsung don’t include them for marketing reasons, not because they can’t.
Some of you may doubt the Mediatek chip inside, but the 16nm P23 is much better than people give it credit for. Helio P23 is a toe-to-toe Snapdragon 625/626 competitior with slightly better graphics thanks to the Mali G71 inside. Helio P23 also delivers Dual 4G and Dual VoLTE, something which no budget Snapdragon does. Another clever trick UMIDIGI did was to go for an OmniVision camera sensor, rather than the overpriced Sony and Samsung. OV make great camera sensors, but are not as popular as Samsung and Sony ones. Overall, nothing looks out of place, even the stock Android 8.1 Oreo is a bonus here. Not to even mention the unique side fingerprint sensor which is vastly overlooked by companies.
