UMI ZERO, we analyze a Chinese terminal with a metallic finish and a good camera
As you know, at Andro4all we have always wanted to be able to offer you the analysis of the largest number of terminals, so that you can know what the exponents of each range of phones are. A few months ago the UMI C1 passed through our studios, a very cheap phablet that we quite liked, and today we bring you another device from the same company: the UMI ZERO.
The UMI ZERO is not a phablet, but it does come to become one of the greatest exponents in Chinese phones what is there today. We have specifications worthy of the Asian high-end that give quite good performance. Without further delay, let’s go with the analysis.
Characteristics and technical specifications
As expected, the specifications of the UMI ZERO are those that we are used to seeing in other devices of similar origin and range. We have 2 GB of RAM, the Mali 400 GPU and an octa-core MediaTek processor that runs at 2 GHz. As we can see, the specifications are those of a high-end Chinese device, which leaves us with quite good performance and fluidity.

First of all, we must thank Myefox, who has given us the terminal and from whose page we can acquire the UMI ZERO for the price of 224 euros. In addition, for purchases over 50 euros you will receive a discount coupon of three euros by entering “Andro4all3euros” and, if you are going to purchase this device, by entering 20ZERO4ALL you will receive a 20 euro discount until November 18.
p> As we have seen throughout the analysis of the UMI ZERO, we have some pretty decent specs giving us pretty good performancesomething to which we are already accustomed to terminals of Asian origin, although it is not one of the best user experiences we have found – yes, we must take into account the price range -.
Something that has left us pleasantly surprised is the camera, and it is that everyone knows that the cameras of Chinese phones are the first to suffer when it comes to lowering prices. However, the camera is excellent and gives very good results, although the application can be improved.
Finally, it is worth mentioning the battery, and although the numbers do not reach the high-end, due to Super AMOLED technology and fast charging, it gives us a very good autonomy. When it comes to getting faults, we miss the 4G/LTE connection and NFC chipin addition to a better functioning of the sensors, which work “regular”, and we consider that the audio is not the best.
- Screen: the screen has been manufactured by Samsung, it looks very good and makes the battery have a good autonomy.
- Camera– One of the best cameras we’ve seen on a Chinese phone.
- Physical appearance: The UMI ZERO stands out for its design, being this original and not a copy of the OnePlus One, like other phones.
- 4G/LTE and NFC: It has neither 4G/LTE nor NFC connectivity.
- Audio: not very well heard.
- software: Apps that use the sensors are not working properly.
So far the analysis of the UMI ZERO and, as always, we are interested in knowing your opinion, what do you think of the UMI ZERO? Do you like it?
