- Analysis by KJ David

Simply put, the UMIDIGI One is a little brother to the One Pro that lacks its sibling's wireless charging capability and does not support NFC (Near Field Communication) , both of which were relatively typical facets among flagship smartphones as of this specs-based Phonerated review. Its cons also include a middling 32GB-only native memory that shudders in comparison to the 64GB or 128GB storage caps offered by some of its closest competitors. That being said, it does support up to 256GB's worth of extra storage .

This 2018 UMIDIGI model touts a spacious 5.9-inch 19:9 In-Cell display that reminds us of those of some high-level phablets, although it is nailed to the middle-class smartphone category by its so-so 1520 x 720 HD+ definition and 287ppi pixel density count .

The rest of its pros and cons include a dual-lens rear-facing main camera consisting of a 12-megapixel primary lens and a 5-megapixel deputy lens for depth-of-field analysis. It has a 6-element lens and is accompanied by a dual LED flash.

Perched on its screen notch is a 16-megapixel 5P-lens selfie cam whose raw pixel resolution lines it up with those of some full-fledged selfie-first smartphones.

Hardware-wise the One banks on a mid-range MediaTek Helio P23 dual-cluster eight-core processor running at 2GHz + 1.5GHz, which, relative to its overall specs profile, is neither a pro nor that big of a con. It is tied up with 4GB of RAM and a Mali G71 MP2 graphics processor clocked at 700MHz. On power duties is a respectable 3550mAh battery .

For security, this UMIDIGI phone combines an edge-mounted fingerprint scanner with the brand's Face Unlock feature , while the Android 8.1 Oreo platform ties its technical pros and cons together. It is offered in Twilight and Carbon Fiber , which were not very common finishes in the mid-range Android market when it was released.

Long story short, the UMIDIGI One is a middle-class phablet geared towards users who value aesthetics and imaging the most.
