UMI X2 prototype review – quad core with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage

The most awaited UMI X2 is creating a lot of buzz not just for its price but also for its impressive specifications. The UMI X2 comes powered by a quad core processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage and 13MP camera, all this for Rs. 14,000.

UMI X2 review
I got the X2 prototype handset with the casing sample that will be used on the consumer version. Since it was inside a general box pack, I have skipped the Unboxing process; however I will be getting the consumer version and will doing an unboxing and review again. Consider this as a brief (prototype) review which will give you an idea of what the X2 is made up of.

Design
It’s impressive with classy and premium look. It has got it all. The finishing and the built quality are very good. The handset is 9.9 mm thick. There are 3 touch sensitive buttons on front bottom with front camera and sensors on the top. The power and the volume rockers are placed on the right side with micro USB at the bottom side and the 3.5mm jack on the top side.

Display
The 5 inch screen sports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels (440ppi). This handset comes with Gorilla glass 2 protection. The touch is smooth and responsive. There is light, proximity, magnetic and G-sensors. On this prototype handset you can clearly see the black borders. On the final version which is expected to hit the markets next week, will not have these borders. I will be doing another review of the consumer version so you will get an idea of the box pack, contents and if the borders are removed.

Memory and Storage
The memory and storage is the key highlight. Its’s 2GB RAM with 32GB storage. You get around 26GB internal storage space and 1.1GB space for apps, there is the micro SD card slot in case you want more. Of the 2GB RAM you get around 1.5GB free and of the 32GB storage – 26GB is as internal storage space and 1.4GB for apps (1.11 GB free). You can install apps/games on internal storage (i.e. on the 26GB phone storage)

Performance
it’s the Mediatek quad core MT6589 with PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU. Check out the Benchmark scores listed below.

Benchmark scores

  • Quadrant Benchmark: 3857.
  • Antutu Benchmark: 11837.
  • Nenamark2: 28.0 fps.
  • Linpack : Single 37, Multi 89.
  • Multi Touch: 5 point.

13MP camera
On the prototype model the camera resolution is 12MP but in the consumer version it will be 13MP. There is LED flash and videos can be recorded in full HD resolution. Check out the sample images and videos at the end of the article.

Entertainment
The handset can easily play 1080p videos and it looks even great on the full HD screen. The speaker volume is loud and clear.

Others: It is a dual SIM handset with dual standby mode. The handset supports 3G, Wi-Fi with hotspot, micro USB  (Tethering), Bluetooth (Tethering), GPS and 3.5mm jack. The handset runs on the latest Jelly Bean 4.2 OS.

Battery
The 2520 mAH battery I guess, should easily last for over a day.

Conclusion
A quad core handset with 5 inch screen, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, gorilla glass 2 protection and 13MP camera for a price of Rs. 14,000 seems unbelievable, but it’s true. The UMI X2 has already raised the bar when it comes to low price and features. For many after sales is the main issue and I guess once the Android Guruz stores are functional (probably this month), many will gain the confidence. The UMI X2 specs and the price has made it the lone winner, for now…

UMI will also launch the X2 with 8GB and 16GB internal storage soon. The UMI X2 and UMI X1s shipping will start from 15th ~ 18th April onwards. (First lot of 18K (X2) pcs in India).

Do note: This is a prototype handset, I will be getting the final consumer version soon. I will then come up with another Unboxing and review for the same.
