Is the China UMIDIGI Z Pro a Worthy Apple iPhone Competitor?
Yes, I’m going to review the Chinese-labeled UMIDIGI Z Pro.
Chinese-labeled smartphones are starting to take off, not just in China, but elsewhere too. After Apple and Samsung, Chinese-based Huawei and Oppo were the No. 3 and No. 4 smartphone makers during the fourth quarter of 2016. I want to learn more about these Chinese-labeled handsets.
Later this week, I’m receiving an UMIDIGI Z Pro for a review at AppAdvice. We don’t usually cover phones not named iPhone, so this will be a first. The UMIDIGI Z Pro has lots of interesting features going for it, which makes it an excellent choice for review, including:
- 5.5-inch SHARP Original IGZO display
- SONY 13mpx dual-camera lens technology
- Samsung 13MP front-facing camera
- PE+ Quick Charging
- Samsung 4GB RAM
- Full Metal Unibody
- MTK Helio X27, Deca-core, Cortex A72 2.6GHZ
- 2 Nano SIM Card
Oh, and did I mention the unlocked UMIDIGI Z Pro is just $300?
I’m excited about doing this review, which will be outside of my comfort zone. I plan on publishing the review at AppAdvice in early April, which is around the time the smartphone first launches for the public. The review will focus almost exclusively on hardware, not on the Android OS. Specifically, I’ll focus my attention on the smartphone’s camera, full metal unibody, and battery charging capabilities.
My goal is to compare this device’s hardware with that of the current-generation iPhone 7 Plus and also see how it stacks up against the hardware rumored on the upcoming “iPhone 8.”
