Feature Breakdown

Umidigi is using a low pricing strategy for its devices. The Umidigi X is quite affordable for the range of specs it offers.

Let’s check out if the low Umidigi X price is a reflection of its performance or not.

The Umidigi X weighs a whopping 7.1oz (202g). If you’ve read any of my previous reviews, you’d know that I like my mobile device to ideally weigh below 170g, and the Umidigi X overshoots that benchmark by quite a few grams.

In terms of physical dimensions, the device measures 6.2 x 2.9 x 0.3 inches (158.6 x 75.6 x 8.1 mm) which is similar to the OnePlus 7 and other phones with the same screen size.

The device launched with the Android Pie (version 9) which came out towards the end of 2018. The device can be updated to the latest Android 10 and this a superb deal for this price.

Now to let’s get down to the core.

The Umidigi runs on a Mediatek chipset, specifically the Meditek Helio P60. This chipset is a mainstream processor mainly used on Android devices. The Octa-core processor is split into 4 big A-73 cores and 4 power-efficient A-53 cores. The SoC is built on the 12nm architecture.

The MediaTek Helio P60 competes with the 6-series SoCs from Snapdragon specifically the Snapdragon 660. Since the Helio P60 is built on the 12nm architecture it is said to be more energy-efficient than the 14nm build of the Snapdragon 660.In terms of graphics however the Snapdragon 660 triumphs.

Display-wise the Umidigi X has a 6.3” AMOLED display with a resolution of 720 x 1548-pixels and a PPI of 269. For a device of this size a PPI of 269 is pretty decent. Anything above 250 is good enough and above that the human eye can’t differentiate anyway.

The Umidigi X has a 4GB RAM and total internal storage of 128GB. Again this is a really good phone for this price point. It also has a MicroSD card slot.

Umidigi X is fitted with a triple camera and the quality is decent enough.

The battery battle is the one victory Umidigi scores with a Lithium Polymer 4150mAh. Umidigi seems to be having their battery game on point with the Umidigi Power 3 having a massive 6150mAh battery.

With the Umidigi X, you also get all your usual sensors plus an in-screen fingerprint sensor right in the middle of the display which isn’t expected from a phone in this price range.

Considering the price point, the Umidigi X gives you plenty of bang for your buck and is worth shortlisting if you are looking for a phone in this price range.
