Finally got my new cell phone, the UMI X 2. Produced in China and designed in India.
The device looks like a book and the phone comes in second “page”. Only the device, a fountain and a USB cable-Micro USB.
There's the cell phone in box. All apparently made to be the cheapest and smallest possible to simplify the freight.
On the previous page where the cell phone for this list of specifications. Attention to the resolution of the display which is FullHD. The best feature of this phone.
There is the device working and running my favorite Launcher ilauncher, that leaves and iPhone-like interface. The display is 5 inches and as much glare as the angle of sight is very good.
See a photo taken a closer look at the details of the display icons are awesome. It's better than the resolution of most of the tablets, and as good as the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Maybe you can't see in the picture below, but here there is a trellis 5 in 5 pixels:
The contrast and frequency response of the display are very good. Videos on youtube in high quality look better in the UMI X 2 than on my computer monitor.
The configuration menu is colorful following the diagram of cell phones Samsung. There is also ease of WiFi and Bluetooth on and off directly from the home screen.
Android is the 4.2.1, Although not have Swype keyboard native.
The Market works well, as was expected.
As the Android keyboard does not come with Swype, I installed from the Market. Works perfectly. Actually, all I installed worked fine.
The back of the phone has a very good finish, better even than the Jiayu G3. Remembering that the Display of the X 2, as well as the G3, has Gorilla Glass.
The camera is very good, both the back of 13 m pixels as the front of 1.9 M pixels. The flash is a little weak, but that's pretty common in Chinese phones.
On the side we have a power button and a volume.
In the lower part of the microphone and the Micro-USB connector.
Running the AnTuTu have a very high result, Although shorter than I expected.
We have only 11693 in AnTuTu. It may be that with another firmware I can get a higher score, as heard that the x 2 can reach 15000.
This is the detailed score. I left here as compared to the readers of this blog who have this phone.
These are the hardware specifications. Compliance with resolution and 480 DPI. Fantastic! We also have a Quad Core CPU with 1 GB of RAM.
Camera specifications and of RAM displayed by AnTuTu:
An annoying defect, Although not remove any functionality, is the bad lighting of the hardware buttons:
Now a more serious defect: the WiFi reception is not very good, While not the worst I've ever seen. My network, for example, is received with-59dBm to about a metre from the router. Most good cell phones would have a receiving-50dBm. You can use without problems, But if you're away from the router can have some disconnections. I tested the speed and WiFi seemed good even with the weak signal.
Bluetooth works normal as expected.
The phone picks up 3 g networks both in “H” as in “H ”. Also gets 3 g signal in the 2.1 GHz and 900 MHz bands, What does not occur in Jiayu G3.
Below the status bar where you can turn on and off all the hardware of the phone.
Now the most annoying defect: here in Rio de Janeiro I have a Live operator chip with 3 g network access. However, for some crazy reason without explanation, This phone does not receive Live network in some parts of the city. All other carriers (Of course, Tim and Oi) functioning normally anywhere, both in 2 g as in 3 g.
When I set up to use the 3 g network cell alive is no service, not receiving or making calls. I don't understand what the problem, Since the Alive uses the same frequency band of other carriers out of Rio de Janeiro.
See just how strange. This photo below records that I have-69dBm of sign on the HSPA network (3G) The Alive but still can't connect. This signal strength is strong enough to fill all the bars. I don't know why I get no service.
Vivo's 3 g network appears when I set list all operators present, Although not connect or register the network. In some places of the city works normally, What makes me even more worried.
Another flaw is that the battery is not very good, Although higher than most Chinese phones. The length is more or less a day, even with a strong constant use of WiFi and 3 g.
I tried everything to make the GPS work but so far I couldn't, Although I can't give sure yet if there is a defect.
In General, If it wasn't this weird problem with the carrier Alive I would be entirely happy with the UMI X 2. I ended up putting a pre-paid chip from another carrier to use the 3 g and the result was a reliable and fast mobile internet, so good when on any phone brand.
With all the shortcomings I still think this fantastic phone. I will try to look for any firmware update to fix these small problems and, If you cannot, I'm going to change time of operator. All are kinda suck, and that sounds like a great option to keep the appliance and use the network of light, Tim or Hi.
If anyone has this phone comment down here about defects or solutions. Perhaps when more people have the same problem will be easier to solve it. I leave a link below for more specifications of UMI X 2 and also to store PandaWill:
