It happened so that I have two UMI smartphones at the moment – Hammer S and Fair. I have already done the first impressions video about of the former one and this time around I wanted to share my initial thoughts about the UMI Fair – a cheap smartphone that has a fingerprint scanner.
We wanted to say thanks to Coolicool.com for providing us with UMI Fair for a review.
Umi Fair Unboxing: Video
My first impressions about UMI Fair is that it has a great design and good build quality for such a cheap phone. It definitely feels good in the hand and the phone is manageable in one hand due to its 5″ display.
Also, I love the metal chassis going around the device and a soft plastic back, which both give a nice feel to the touch.
As far as UI goes, so far it seems it is running smoothly but I haven’t even installed any apps on the device.
When it comes to the fingerprint scanner, which is supposed to be a star of the show here (UMI wants us to believe so), it does not seem to be working fine. As you may have seen in the video, it is not accurate enough and even the setup process is annoying. Well, I will give my final thoughts on that when the full review is ready as I have already started using the phone as my daily driver.
So here it is, the UMI Fair. If you have any questions about the device, please let me know in the comment section.
