The desire of the manufacturers to chase the popularity of the iPhone is commendable, but usually these attempts end in failure. UMIDIGI has not started to repeat the mistakes of its predecessors and has chosen rather unconventional approach. The company has released a "budget version" of iPhone 7 on Android - UMIDIGI G. The model replicates the design of Apple smartphone and offers excellent build quality, which is very good considering the price below $90.
Design and display UMIDIGI G
If you remove the logos, an untrained person will find it difficult to distinguish the UMIDIGI G from the iPhone 7, even holding the devices in his hands. The secret lies in the way the casing is manufactured, which consists of a 20% five-layer metal coating applied to a polycarbonate base. This way a matte surface is formed on which there are no fingerprints, and the smartphone remains thin and light. The entire process is shown in a separate video .
UMIDIGI G is equipped with a 5-inch Sharp display with HD resolution of 1280x720 pixels and protective glass Corning Gorilla Glass of fourth generation with 2.5D effect. The screen has a wide viewing angles and provides vivid colours. The chosen diagonal of 5 inches allows you to control the smartphone with one hand.
The company's smartphones always offer good performance for their price, the new UMIDIGI G was no exception. It runs on a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MTK6737 chipset with integrated ARM Mali-T720 MP2 graphics at 600MHz. "iPhone on Android" got 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in memory. The main camera is 8-megapixel and the front module is 2-megapixel.
The device has a front-facing fingerprint scanner, which is also used in the UMIDIGI Z flagship. It allows a light touch to unlock the device in a fraction of a second.
Despite the modest battery capacity of 2000 mAh, thanks to the economical "hardware" and energy-saving features of the operating system Android 7.0 Nougat smartphone demonstrates good performance battery life. A full charge of the UMIDIGI G battery is enough for six hours of web surfing, 28 hours of talk time, or up to 42 hours of listening to music.
Lightweight and compact
UMIDIGI G fits comfortably in your hand and does not pull away your pocket. "iPhone 7 on Android" is available to order for $10 less than the standard price, first-time buyers also receive a screen protector and silicone case.
