Some people prefer a phone to have impressive technical specifications to ensure the best performance. Others put a higher priority on a well-designed, beautiful device that feels substantial in their hand. With the UMi Super, however, you get the best of both worlds. Even better is that in addition to the handsome exterior and power underneath the hood, it all comes at a bargain price.
The UMi Super has just about everything that the choosy Android fan is looking for:
- Aluminum build materials
- Ultra-thin 7.8mm design
- Massive 4000 mAh battery capacity
- The latest Android 6.0 OS
- Quick charging technology
- Fingerprint scanner
- USB-C port
- 7-color notification LED
- Toggle physical or virtual navigation buttons
UMi has taken great care to include these elements that phones more than double or triple the price often cut corners on.
You might be asking, "how can a phone with a 4000 mAh battery be that thin?" Well, that required UMi to prioritize both the thickness and the large battery from the start. To save space, UMi designed the back cover to have an inset to accommodate the bulky battery.
Without that kind of attention to detail, you just wouldn't get a phone that looks this good and in such a small package.

Of course, there's no end to what can be said about the finer points of the UMi Super. What about the basics, the things every phone has? The Super stands out there as well.
First, you have the MediaTek Helio P10 SoC, which boasts an octa-core, Cortex A53 processor. Memory hog? Don't fret, the Super comes with 4GB of Samsung's speedy LPDDR3 RAM. It also comes standard with 32GB of eMMC 5.1 flash storage. With an Antutu benchmark around 47,000, the Super's performance is exactly what you'd expect for a flagship killer.
The 13MP Panasonic camera sensor is ready to impress, too. The camera will launch in a half-second or less, you can focus instantly, and take burst shots at up to 10 per second. You can also record videos in full HD resolution, ready for viewing on your big screen TV.
Speaking of viewing in full HD, you can do that right on your UMi Super. The 5.5", 1080p display from SHARP renders 95% of the NTSC gamut. Even more impressive is the Sunlight Display mode, which makes everything easier to see in bright light situations that make many other phones unusable.
All of this can be yours for just $249. Well, that's not quite true. During the UMi Super pre-sale, you can get $70 off by signing up for UMi's mailing list.
