UMI X3 Review—Design


This is the first time that we make a review of UMI phone, UMI X3 could consider as the best UMI phone. In the front of the phone, there has a 5.5 inch large screen, and above of the screen is the call speaker and the front camera. Besides, below the screen we do find three soft buttons which only visible when being lit up.


Looking at the the sides of UMI X3, we could find it’s quite simple. There only has a Mircro-SIM card slot on the left side, and the Power key /Volume button on the right side. In addition, on the lower/upper sides, we do also find a headphone jack and USB port, the headphone jack had been blocked by a pin, this pin could open the SIM card slot and dust-proof.

On the rear of UMI X3, we do notice a rear camera、dual flashlights, and below the camera is the UMI Logo. Meanwhile, in the bottom of the phone, we also see the media speaker. Overall, the appearance design of UMI X3 is simple and beautiful.


UMI X3 Review—Display

This time, UMI phone had done a effect on UMI X3’s screen, it adopts a 5.5 inch 1080P FHD IPS screen which uses OGS techology, compared with most smartphones, this specs is rather good, and its’ display quality shows quite good. However, it’s pity that it has no Gorilla Glass protection, you need to be careful for scratches.

UMI X3 Review—Performance

As a High-end smartphone, UMI X3 adopts the lastest MTK Octa-core processor, it runs 1.7GHz MT6592 Octa-core processor along with 2G RAM/16G ROM. However, UMI X3 does not support Micro SD extended Memory, which means you only limited to 16GB internal storage on the phone, which is rather inconvenience.


During our test, we also make a Antutu score benchmark test of UMI X3, it had reached 25,527 points, which is higher than Galaxy Note2 and Sony Xperia Z. Certainly, UMI X3 could supports large apps and large mobile games.


In addition, we also download several mobile games to experience the performance of UMI X3, when we play the game, the phone runs smooth, and run for some time, its’ body also not quite hot.

UMI X3 Review—Features

  1. NFC function

Nowadays, Mobile Payment has more and more popular in our daily, with NFC function, we could do payment by our mobilephone, meanwhile, we also could exchange datas with other NFC phone.



  1. OTG function

Now, more and more phones had adopted this function, with this function, we could tranfer infromation to other devices.


  1. GPS Testing Plus

In UMI X3 phone, we had found the GPS Testing Plus function,  through this function, we do testing UMI X3’s  GPS function, and find its’ GPS runs quite well, and search many satellites.


Otherwise, The HOME button of UMI X3 also owns breathing light functions, while the screen is on black mode, someone call or send message to you , the HOME button will flashing.

UMI X3 Review—Battery/Camera

Althought UMI X3 has a slim body, UMI X3 also provided a 3150mAh built-in battery, which could support about 2~3 days standby time. Certainly, for those video/game players, it’s not enough, you may need to prepare a Charging Po.

For its’ camera function, UMI X3 would not let you down. X3 equipped with 8.0MP front/13.0MP rear camera with auto focus. More importantly, UMI X3 adopts dual flashlights, which is rather rare in most smatphones. Now, we had taken some photos by UMI X3:
