  • Umi Max 5.5 inch Android 6.0 Unlocked 4G Smartphone

    In short, feels good in hand, works exactly as any other latest smartphone - One of the fastest Chinese brands I tested, but definitely very good standard and build quality irrespective of the cost of the phone. Comes with all the latest features including a fingerprint scanner.

    4000mAh Battery, 1920x1080 Full HD IPS display, almost instantaneous finger print sensor and all metal back are the highlights and only complaint is poor camera quality.

    Comes with Android 6.0 preinstalled, fully unlocked and has access to play store to install apps just like any other Android phones. Front face almost matches with Nexus devices with capacitive buttons. Around the bezel and sides looks like an iPhone. In the front you have 1920x1080 IPS display that fused into unibody surrounds and back. On the back you have fingerprint scanner, dual flash and the camera.
    4000mAh Battery & 1920 x 1080 IPS Full HD Display
    The battery is non-removable. On the sides the buttons are accessible with one hand, but the volume button is on the right side. On the left you have Sim tray that takes either 2 SIMs or 1 SIM and 1 Micro SD card. There is also an additional button, which is customisable in the settings.

    + Very stylish and feels good i hand
    + Large bright 5.5” screen with perfect top and bottom
    + Fingerprint sensor that really works
    + Fast enough for every day tasks
    + 3GB Ram & 16GB Storage space
    +13mp rear camera (not so great)
    + Full HD IPS display
    + Small sized phone for a 5.5” screen size
    + 4000mAh Battery

    - Software stability need improvement
    - Poor colour reproduction in camera software
    - GPS need improvement

    But for just in the range of £140ish, this phone has a lot to offer. Fingerprint sensors are customisable and you can register up to 5 fingerprints that can do various tasks. WiFi Upload / Download speed is as fast as my Galaxy S6. No signs of delay or lag anywhere in usual tasks, but struggles with heavy graphic rich content / games. Only mono speaker, but loud enough to hear in small rooms. Audio via headphone jack is really good quality and on par with higher end phones.

    4000mAh battery is one of the high light,  which is more than enough to get through2 days. The phone doesn’t support fast charging, but charges quick as any other mid ranged phones coupled with decent wall charger and a cable. I’d not trust the bundled charger and cable, though cable looks decent enough. Charging / Data port is USB Type-C, so if you plan to use existing ables, make sure your cables has Type-C terminations.

    Overall, you get a lot from this phone, just in the range of £140 with the highlight of fingerprint sensor, battery and screen size. Please do check out the pictures to see what exactly you get and how it looks.
