UmiDigi S2 Pro is another smartphone from Chinese mobile phone maker with 6.0-inch full HD display and 90% screen to body ratio (18:9). It is one of the best-looking budget smartphones from the brand thanks to its expansive display with aspect ratio 18:9.
It is a very classy smartphone, quite similar to the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Apple’s iPhone 8 in terms of aspect ratio. It comes in only Black and Red colours, but I think they should have added more colours variants to supplement its unique look. The S2 Pro is a full metal bezel-less phone, kudos to its first-class craftsmanship. The phone comes with a 6.0-inch full-screen Display with 1080 x 2160 pixels resolution which translates into a pixel per inch density of 402.
Unlike other phones with similar screen size, this smartphone fits perfectly in your hand, giving you a big-screen experience without the inconvenience of a big phone. The S2 Pro is equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and offers 14% wider viewing area compared to iPhone 7 plus.
It is powered by a 2.6GHz Octa-core MediaTek Helio P25 CPU with 6GB RAM for a smooth gaming experience. Its internal storage of 128GB can be upgradeable to 256GB with the help of a memory card. It runs on Android 7.0 and the latest UMI OS.
Camera-wise, this phone does not disappoint despite the low price tag. The front camera of the S2 Pro is one of my favourite features on this smartphone.
It has a 16MP front-facing camera for taking selfies while at the back, there is a dual rear camera consisting of Sony IMX258 13 MP + 5MP Dual shooter and comes with phase detection, autofocus and LED flash. I guess people use more of the front camera these days, hence the need to put more pixel on the front right. It is powered by a Non-removable 5100 mAh Battery, which according to the company can last for 2 days when fully charged.
