Umidigi One Max: Packaging

Almost all smartphones of the company are delivered in boxes made of black cardboard. UmiDigi One Max is no exception.

On the top cover of the box there is a texture coating, and in the center is the logo of the manufacturer’s company “UmiDigi”.

On the back, there is a sticker with the technical specifications.

Inside the box in the center of the seals of soft material is a smartphone, dressed in a silicone case.

Under the smartphone is a black envelope, inside which is a clip and a brief instruction manual.

Below is the power adapter (5V / 2A, 9V / 2A, 12V / 1.5A) and USB Type-C cable.

In general, the package is quite good.

Umidigi One Max: Design

Smartphone Umidigi One Max has a classic design (standard monoblock with rounded corners). Almost the entire front surface is occupied by a 6.3-inch display with a  teardrop-shaped notch under the front camera. The screen has an aspect ratio of 19: 9 and occupies 91.5% of the front panel area.

Side frames – minimal, but under the screen, there is a small “chin”, so the lower frame is slightly thicker.

UMIDIGI One Max will be offered in at least two versions. The first is the “Twilight”, a glass case with a clear gradient. The second option, “Carbon Fiber Black”, has a glass case, although the design on the back wall is reminiscent of carbon, as well as the special edition OnePlus 6.

Umidigi One Max: Screen

Umidigi One Max is equipped with a 6.3-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1520×720 pixels. The display is made on technology In-Cell and has an aspect ratio of 19: 9. It also has a rather impressive ratio to the area of the front panel, which is 91.5%. And although it is still far from the Lenovo Z5 Pro, which occupies 95% of the usable space, but One Max is really good compared to its competitors.

The display has a pixel density of 287 PPI and quite decent viewing angles. Inversion of colors is not observed, even at large angles of inclination. The screen is bright and clear, the margin of brightness is also at a sufficient level.

The multi-touch screen is able to perceive up to 5 simultaneous touches.

Umidigi One Max: Performance

UmiDigi One Max has quite good characteristics for its price range. The heart of the device is a budget MediaTek Helio P23 (MT6763T), produced by a 16 nm process.

This chipset has an eight-nuclear configuration, divided into two blocks. The first is ARM Cortex-A53 (four cores of which operate at 2.3 GHz), the second is ARM Cortex-A53 (four cores at 1.65 GHz).

Responsible for the graphics processor Mali-G71 MP2 (frequency up to 700 MHz). The smartphone is equipped with 4 GB of LPDDR4x RAM with a clock frequency of up to 1500 MHz and 128 GB of eMMC 5.1 internal memory. If necessary, it can be expanded with a TF card up to 256 GB.

This SoC configuration is quite enough for everyday work. Moreover, it is quite enough to play comfortably even in quite demanding games, though at minimum or medium settings.

UmiDigi One Max has a fairly rich set of sensors and sensors, such as a gyroscope, magnetometer, and proximity and lighting sensors. Also, the smartphone has a fingerprint scanner, but unlike most analogs, the sensor is built into the side on/off button. A fairly convenient solution, but I wonder how much this sensor can work. The scanner is configured in the standard way.

The smartphone is equipped with two speakers, out of the box, it is running OS Android 8.1 Oreo.

The secondary 5MP sensor, unlike many other Chinese phones, really works here. In the Stereo mode, the smartphone perfectly selects the central object and blurs the background beautifully around it.

The front camera has sensor S5K3P3 with a resolution 16 MP  and a F/2.0 aperture. The quality of the pictures should please fans to take a selfie.

Umidigi One Max: Battery

Umidigi One Max is equipped with a fixed, lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of 4150 mAh. This is a fairly good indicator, by today’s standards.

Smartphone charging can be done in two ways, 18 watts for wired and 15 watts for wireless charging.

18 W fast charge uses PE + technology that is able to charge the battery as quickly as possible. For 80 minutes, it will charge the battery from 0 to 80% via the USB Type-C connector.

With a sufficiently economical use of the battery and a moderate load, the battery life will be about 2 days.
