Cyberlayman tests the Umidigi One Max smartphone, which in appearance recalls the latest OnePlus 6T, due to the drop notch, but whose price is considerably lower. Here's how it goes, what are the features of the terminal and what are the new elements.
How it's done
The design of Umidigi One Max, at first glance, as already mentioned, resembles OnePlus 6T, mainly for the front and for the shape of the display. The panel offers a 6.3-inch diagonal, larger than the 5.86-inch direct successor One Pro. When it comes to the dimensions it is a rather generous terminal, which measures 15.68 x 7.56 x 0.84 centimeters.
Beyond a particularly clean front, on the right side there is the volume rocker and the fingerprint sensor, which also acts as an on / off button, and which has really generous dimensions. Rather comfortable, even if the quality of the Touch ID, as easily understood, is not among the best.
On the bottom there is the 3.5 mm jack, the microphone, the USB Type-C connector, and the speaker grill. There is a slot for two nano SIM cards, with support also for the insertion of an external memory up to 256 GB. On the back a dual camera and LED flash.
UMIDIGI Uno Max has a 6.3-inch display with a resolution of 1520 x 720 pixels, 19: 9 with a 91.5% screen-to-body ratio. The HD display is pretty standard and typical of Umidigi's One series. It is a sufficient display, with good colors, which reads well in the sunlight, even if the touches on the screen are not the most responsive, but this is due to the overall hardware equipment.
Hardware and performance
The terminal offers the Helio P23 CPU, an Octa Core processor clocked at 2.0GHz, supported by 4 GB of RAM and a 128 GB ROM. An ARM Mali MP2 G71 GPU improves graphics performance.
Beyond the technical characteristics, the terminal does a sufficient job in everyday use, but it certainly does not shine for fluidity and speed. The UI animations are sufficiently clear, but even in this case we are not facing the most responsive smartphone.
From the point of view of usability, of course, it allows you to enjoy a large part of the Android ecosystem, to benefit from all the messaging apps, the most used applications, such as social networks, then Facebook, Instagram, and the like.
Even the most famous arcade games, such as Asphalt 9, can be played, albeit with less detail and not excellent fluidity. No problem with Clash Royale-style games or all that sequence of casual applications. Of course, it is not a terminal for gamers, so you will have to settle for a standard use, giving up the speed and fluidity of top-of-the-range terminals.
It comes with Android 8.1 Oreo on board, with sufficient optimization in terms of graphics, even if to tell the truth we immediately preferred to install Nova Launcher, in order to obtain a greater homogeneity of the graphic interface.
It offers support for 4G LTE networks, flanked by a Wi-Fi module b, g, n, at 5 GHz, dual band, with Wi-Fi hotspot function, Wi-Fi direct. The terminal also offers NFC connectivity, so OneMax is enabled for mobile payments. Few other terminals offer this feature in this price range. Closes the circle of connectivity, GPS module, A-GPS, and GLONASS.
The battery is another valid element of the terminal. Equipped with a nominal power of 4150mAh, it offers support for fast wireless charging at 15W, of course with QI technology. As far as traditional corded charging is concerned, it supports up to 18W, therefore able to reach 80% in about an hour and a half.
UMIDIGI One Max has a camera compartment equal to One Pro. On the back it has a 12 + 5 MP dual camera, while on the front a 16 MP lens with LED flash. The rear camera is capable of capturing 2K images and recording videos at the same resolution.
Among the functions of the camera, those Panorama, filters in real time, and facial recognition, which to tell the truth does not add a noteworthy experience. When it comes to taking pictures, the terminal does it fairly quickly, also capturing enough details, but only in optimal light conditions. The rear camera has night mode, but it does not offer satisfactory results.
As usual we offer you a gallery of images taken directly with the terminal and not subjected to any changes. So you can judge the quality of the shots.
Umidigi One Max is an aesthetically valid terminal, with a sufficient screen and absolutely suitable for the selling price. It will not be the fastest terminal on the market, but it will guarantee you to fully enjoy the Android ecosystem. The colored back cover is an extra aesthetic touch, even if the brightness of the colors does not come to equal that of the Honor or Hauwei terminals.
Sufficient camera, at least in perfect lighting conditions, loses detail in shots in the dark. One Max is a sufficient terminal in all, which certainly does not exaggerate with top performance, but which can be used in everyday life without particular problems.
