Xiaomi Note 2 is the latest flagship from Xiaomi with fantastic specs. On the other hand, Umi comes with the Umi Plus Extreme edition standing in front of the Mi Note 2 and waving the glove for a match to the end. So let see who is gonna win!?
The UMi Plus E (Extreme) comes with a 5.5 inch LTPS 1920 x 1080 2.5D Arc screen display from Sharp, 6000 aluminum alloy unibody design and very high screen-to-body ratio with very thin bezel. It comes out in black.
The XIAOMI Mi Note 2 comes with 3D curved screen 5.7 inch with 1920 x 1080 screen resolution from LG. Under the screen we find the home button which features and the fingerprint scanner. Xiaomi MI Note 2 back uses 3D glass design, with metal frame, which shows very smooth. We can find 3.5mm earphone jack, IR remote control and MIC on the top, At the bottom there is a USB Type C port, with the MIC and the speakers.
The Umi Plus E has under the hood the latest Mediatek 16nm Helio P20 octa-core SoC, which runs by 20% better as CPU and 25% as GPU in comparison with the Helio P10. Helio P20 is the latest creation of Mediatek with 16nm SoC manufactured by TSMC with eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.3GHz, and the new Mali T880 MP2 GPU clocked at 900MHz. The Plus E comes with 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via Hybrid SIM microSD card slot (dual-SIM, SIM with microSD). Also is equipped with the enormous number of 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, which I believe is a number that will start little by little to see a lot!
The Mi Note 2 on the other hand comes with the latest version of the Quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 clocked at 2.35GHz. The Mi Note 2 has 6GB of RAM running and 128GB ROM of internal storage. With all these storage, it never ends!
The new Umi Plus E features as main camera a 13MP Samsung 3L8 at the back, with 5-elements lens, PDAF auto-focus, two-tone flash, ability to record in 4K video. For selfies, the mobile is equipped with a 5MP GalaxyCore camera. Plus E also features 4G + and VoLTE, 802.11abgn dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, USB Type-C and Touch ID 2.1 fingerprint scanner. The new Umi Plus E can decode/encode 4K video! Also since the SoC is manufactured in FinFET 16nm, it will consume less power, without getting hot! Umi has tried from the beginning to have very good relations with Mediatek and now with the release of the Helio P20, shows that these relations are really very good.
The new Mi Note 2 as main camera has a 22.56 MP. At the front the camera that has is a 8 MP. Runs Android 6.0 system MIUI 8.0 and we are expecting in the following days the MIUI 9.0, Features Dual SIM: Nano SIM Nano SIM. The mobile doesn’t support external memory card.
The new Umi Plus E carries a Sony 4000mAh battery with the feature of Quick Charge PE+ technology. With this feature, you can charge the mobile at 50% in 30 minutes only!
Thw Mi Note 2 also comes with a 4070mAh battery that supports Quick Charge PE+ technology. With this feature, you can charge the mobile at 50% in 30 minutes only, the same as Umi plus E!
Both mobiles, and Xiaomi Note 2 and Umi Plus E come with very good specs. Mi Note 2 has a little better specs from Umi since it has a bigger screen, more internal storage, but UMI comes at half the price of the Mi Note 2, so I guess is all relative. You can find Umi Plus E at Efox at a very low price, as and the Mi Note 2. So Umi Plus Extreme costs €239.99, but you can use 30euros coupon code: UPL30 to catch it at €209.99 and Mi Note 2 costs €489.99.
