Umi Super is a top performing 4G Phablet, with a unibody aluminum body and high-quality hardware It is powered by Helio P10 2.0GHz CPU, 4GB RAM, 5.5-inch FullHD SHARP LTPS Screen, 32GB ROM, Microarray’s 4th Gen Fingerprint Scanner, 13MP Quality Rear Camera and 5MP Front Camera.
It mounts the brand new Helio P1 CPU, MediaTek Cortex-A53 Octa Core 2.0GHz Processor known as MT7655. Well after the benchmark tests Helio P10 can beat chipsets like Snapdragon 801 and 615. An ARM Mali T860 is planted at chipset with clocking power 700MHz with 2 Cores help to render quality graphic.
HELIO P10 IS 30% MORE POWER EFFICIENT THAN PREVIOUS GENERATION MEDIATEK CPU’S
Samsung eMMC 5.1 Flash memory is used in Phablet for Storage purpose in 4GB RAM and 16GB ROM, It is a lot of space to save tons of photos in the mobile storage and this storage size is expandable up to 256GB with MicroSD Card. The Super’s Helio P10 is noticeably quicker than previous generations of MediaTek processors like the MT6753 and the MTK6735.
Design & Build-quality
The UMi Super has a cool style and when you pick it up, it oozes monolithic slab sturdiness. It is bit weighty phablet with 185 grams, but it is because of 4000mAh battery and in exchange of little weight you get an extra battery.
Throughout the phone most of the sensors are hidden except the front camera, the rear lines up neatly along the vertical axis. It breathing LED halo which draws the attention on Notifications like SMS, Missed Calls etc. The CNC polish, on the chamfered edges of the metal unibody, has been toned down giving a matt textured shine that looks premium without shouting ‘look at me’. The final thing is UMi Super’s Quick App button but, I don’t know why it can’t be used to take selfies.
Colours Available: Grey, Gold & Silver
UMi has pre-installed Super with the latest version of Android OS (Marshmallow) bundled with essential apps. You can feel a bit different experience than Stock Marshmallow, and these changes are for betterment. One of these features is an inbuilt background task clearing function which you access through a long press of the Android square. You can then further customize this in the settings, choosing which apps should or shouldn’t be closed down.
Other features include: Not Rooted, Fingerprint management, Bluetooth Smart Lock, Face unlock, LED Management, MiraVision, Sensor Calibration, Screen Cast, Sound Enhancement, Turbo download (4G + WiFi), SIM Management
The UMi Super is packed with ARM Mali T860 which runs at 700MHz and it is dual-core. I was expecting Mali T880 which runs at 900MHz clocking speed, but T860 is still a capable chip.
I ran some popular Android benchmarks below and also tested with some 3D intensive games. What was impressive was the UMi Super played through the first two levels of N.O.V.A no problem without any stuttering or lagging, something I’ve not encountered on the older range of Mali GPU’s.
AnTuTu Benchmark V
The UMi Super scored well with 46655
- 3D – 7680
- UX – 18307
- CPU – 15908
- RAM – 4760
- Single Core Performance: 834
- Multi-Core Performance: 3288
You will find a 4000mAh Sony battery inside the UMi Super that scored one of the best Geekbench battery scores. UMi coupled this huge battery with PE+ Quick Charge Technology that claims to charge up to 75% in just 30mins.
So it’s time to put their claim to test now, The Super uses 2-pin charges so an adapter was used between charger and socket.
The results are not as claimed but it is good.
- 50% – 1 hour
- 75% – 1 hour 28 minutes
- 100% – 2 hours 10 minutes
The first thing I would like to mention about Super’s camera is its Panasonic Camera’s lens which helps to take photos without pausing. Face detection works well and tracked targets accurately.
The second amazing thing about the camera is built-in Instagram-like filters in the camera app and it works for both Rear and Selfie camera.
