Features & Specifications
We see a 5 inch High Definition IPS display on it with 1080 X 1920 resolution, which supports multi-touch to 5. But today, when the market for many analogues, such displays become boring – they are all the same, the difference is minimal. All current Full HD displays on budget, “the Chinese” pleasing to the eye high quality detail, elegant color reproduction, viewing angles and have a good response, but all have one problem – the sun fade much, brightness is not enough. It is protective glass Corning Gorilla Glass of the second generation.

Of the minuses: not quality accessories and eye-catching cost components (stripes on the display, rough illumination).
You also can not say that UMi X2 is very affordable smartphone. Agree, the official price of $ 240 – this is not last year’s $ 160 for the first model, but still should be considered wrong.
Furthermore, it would be desirable individually noted that the dark gray color which looks smart preferable.
After a week of use of UMi X2, we can conclude that 2 GB of RAM is not critical at this stage, but for the platform MT6589 is a nice bonus. Therefore, when choosing your future smartphone, come to the question carefully, wisely and without greed.
