As in the UMIDigi S, the manufacturer has chosen to present the phone in a black cardboard box with the brand’sbrand’s logo in the center. Below we have the main features of the device.
The terminal comes in the upper part protected by a transparent TPU cover. Below is a tiny envelope with the card slot key and a mini manual. Down, we have the European power charger with 5V and 2A output. It also includes a red micro-USB type C cable and a USB type C to 3.5mm Jack adapter.
Design and Screen
UMIDigi is characterized by creating terminals with a great design; in this case, it has achieved it again. The phone retains the same features as its predecessor and is made of aluminum alloy, which gives it an exquisite look and feels like a feature-packed mobile. It is a unibody terminal to which we will not be able to change the battery without the appropriate tools.
It measures 74.6 mm high x 158.6 mm long and 8.0 mm thick, similar to the UMIDigi S but weighing 188 g.
This UMiDigi S2 has a 5.99″ IPS LCD screen made by SHARP with 2.5D rounded edges and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection to prevent scratches. In this case, the resolution drops to 720×1440 px and a density of 264 Pixels per inch. The usable screen area is 78% and has an aspect ratio of 18:9. Screen brightness is good, and color quality is acceptable.
The phone has symmetrical bezels at the top and bottom. The bottom part is spotless, and the navigation buttons will appear when needed. Above is the camera.
The rear area has a smooth metallic finish (in this case, red, which in my opinion, makes it very elegant). In the center are the dual camera and a small flash. The fingerprint sensor just below it works fine but takes a little while to unlock.
On the right side, you have the volume up and down buttons and the power on and off. On the left side is the SIM card slot. In this case, two nano-SIM cards can be added, or, instead of one, a micro-SD memory card of up to 256GB can be included. The slots are compatible with 4G technology, but like most mobiles, it will only allow you to use a single data connection.
At the bottom, you have the speaker, microphone, and micro USB type C cable slot. On the contrary, the upper part is spotless. In this case, it does not have a 3.5mm jack connector for headphones.
This phone comes with Android 7.0 Nougat multilanguage completely clean, with the primary Google services. These include the Google Play apps, Gmail, and the Maps app.
As it is a “stock Android” version, it also adds the usual applications that come with Android: a file manager, the FM Radio application without spending Internet, another “Mail” application, the calculator, and a “time recorder.” Sound” and a music player. The main settings menu also has the function of scheduling on and off and the increasingly common “Face ID” or facial unlocking.
This facial unlocking works quickly, but you must remember that it is not very secure since you can unlock it with a photograph.
This operating system brings an application drawer vertically to see all the ones we have installed. In addition, it has a functional system update application, so we assume it will be updated via OTA.
After passing the Malwarebytes antivirus, it has not detected any malicious application.
Power and Hardware
And like most cheap terminals, this UMiDigi S2 comes with the 8-core MediaTek MT6750 processor that works at 1.5 GHz. It is a processor with several ARM Cortex-A53 structures and an ARM Mali-T860 MP2 graphics card with a maximum speed of 700MHz. In addition, this UMIDigi incorporates the almost mandatory 4GB of RAM.
After submitting it to the AnTuTu application (new version V7.0.4), which gives us a value of the global performance it can obtain, the result was 56,657 points. Being a new version of AnTuTu, it may be a bit early to compare it with other phones.
In daily use, I’veI’s hardly noticed any performance issues, and messaging apps and social media have worked well. However, if There was a slight delay when switching between apps or opening new apps. On the other hand, it should be mentioned that on one occasion, when I tried to open the camera, the mobile was blocked entirely, having to restart it. In multiplayer games, that “lag” or delay has also become visible when loading the games. After testing it by playing several very demanding games, the terminal has barely warmed up. It has gone from 30ºC to 39ºC in 35 minutes of use.
