Umi Max – powerful smartphone with 8-core Helio P10, 3GB RAM and 4000 mAh battery for $169


We continue with our series of affordable and yet decent devices for people who do not have or do not want to spend much money on tech. This time we are dealing with a very big boy – the 5.5-inch Umi Max Phablet. It is a stylish smartphone with a Helio P10 octa-core processor, 3 GB of RAM, a fingerprint scanner, and many other merits.

If you are interested in the Umi Max 4G phablet, you can have a look at its specs, current price, and availability HERE.


Okay, this is perhaps one of the several main selling points. We are presented with a beautiful anodized metal design, and premium-looking chamfered edges. The back of the phone features the main 13MP camera, accompanied by an LED flash, and the fingerprint scanner (it can register up to 5 fingerprints). Additionally, below the scanner there is the manufacturer’s logo, and even further down – some product information. On the right-hand side one can find the Power button and volume controls, while the left contains a tray meant for two microSIM cards or a microSIM + microSD card. The top holds only the 3.5mm headphones jack, while the bottom – the USB Type-C port and Hi-Fi+ audio system.




As far as the front is concerned, it boasts the big 5.5-inch FHD display, manufactured by SHARP. It’s also good that it uses Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Additionally, there is a 5.0MP camera if you are into selfies, and it’s located above the screen. Below the display you can find another commendable feature of this phablet – a “breathing” LED notification indicator.

Hardware and Software

Indeed, you may be easily drawn by appearance but the hardware components of a device are also important. This big boy has some pretty good specs for the asking price. It boasts an octa-core Helio P10 processor, Mali-T860 GPU, 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. The CPU + GPU combination will ensure good enough performance suitable even for some more demanding games.


Of course, you may not be happy with the 16 GB but do not worry – the manufacturer has included a microSD card which supports up to 256 GB! Plenty of room to store your favorite songs, movies, etc. Additionally, the battery on this device is also more than decent – 4000 mAh.
