In recent years, we have seen how chinese smartphones managed to offer a good price-performance ratio. Some with quality issues, of course. But this is what allowed many manufacturers to become popular in just a few years. Until a few years ago, it was just unimaginable to have a premium product around the 200$ mark. Nevertheless, nowadays it’s possible to get some good quality products like the brand new UMi Plus.
We have often read that UMi refers to its product as the “budget flagship”, because it brings a lot of flagship-grade specs at an affordable price tag. A full metal body, a Sharp display, a huge 4000mAh battery. Sony cells and quick charge support and an Octa Core SoC. Lastly, 4GB RAM, 32GB ROM, a 13MP Samsung camera with manual controls and many other nice features and specifications.
But since specifications are only part of the picture, today UMi shows us a short video of some real-life performance tests. It is against the OnePlus 3 as a reference to show how its smartphone performs in comparison to a top product. As you can see, it is a very basic and short test. It gives us a glimpse on how fast basic, everyday tasks behave on the UMi Plus. OnePlus 3 was chosen because it is the epitome of a top budget flagship.
Very often, benchmarks are determine which device we choose. But real life usage is overlooked most of the time. Here we can see how the UMi Plus manages to go head to head with Oneplus 3 despite having 2 GB less of RAM, even outmatching it on the wifi test.
