Since the phone is advertised with the battery and camera, let’s talk about those first.
Umidigi Power 3 uses a Lithium Polymer 6150mAh.Not many smartphones have such a large battery, and the latest addition to the 6000mAh club is the M30s from Samsung. The 6000mAh gets the job done without too many issues.
On the other hand, we also have some smartphones with good battery capacities like the Energizer Power Max P18K Pop, which has a massive 18,000mAh monster.
According to various tests done on the battery life, the Umidigi Power 3 has proven to last for around 18 hours of continuous use while connected to the Wi-Fi. It could even last up to 3 days on a single charge under less stress.
The device has fast charging using a USB-C port and 18W charger. You can also use the reverse charging feature and make use of the OTG cable included in the box.
Moving on the AI-powered quad-camera:
The device is fitted with a 48MP main lens, a 5MP depth camera, a 13MP 120-degree Ultra Wide Angle camera, and a 5MP Macro camera.
The main lens features a 4X zoom and Super Night Mode.
The colors are pretty good with plenty of light, but even with the Super Night Mode, the pictures are quite grainy and lack sharpness in the dark.
In video mode, the range of colors drops quite a bit and the lens fails to catch some bright colors.
The front camera used is a 16MP lens that supports AI Beautification and Face Unlock.
Now that we’ve covered its most noteworthy features let’s check out the design and other features of the phone.
The device weighs 8.04oz (228g), which is quite heavy but makes sense, given the battery capacity and display size of 6.5”.
In terms of design, the camera bump on the back looks familiar but the curves on the phone make it sleek. In terms of dimensions 0.4” (10.3mm) of thickness sounds too much but is logical with the battery size.
However, the device is manageable on one hand so the dimensions don’t matter.
In terms of display, the device features a 6.53” Full-HD IPS display, unlike the Umidigi X which has an AMOLED display. The display has a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and a PPI of 395 which is remarkable for a screen of this size. Colors are quite sharp and you can’t complain about the viewing angles either.
At the core, you’ll find a MediaTek Helio P60 which was released in 2018 and has a 12nm architecture which on the book is supposed to be efficient and consume less power.
Supporting this processor is a 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage which can be expanded with a MicroSD card up to 256GB. The Umidigi Power 3 also ships with the latest Android 10 stock version.
In terms of connectivity, the Umidigi Power 3 is a dual SIM phone that supports Nano sims. The device also supports NFC and surprisingly has 4 GPS sensors.
For security purposes, the device features both a fingerprint scanner at the back and the front camera supports Face Unlock.
All in all, this device is an absolute monster, not just because of the battery but due to the other features offered for the low price. Umidigi has real potential and you might want to consider buying the Power 3.
