UMIDIGI A5 Pro Hands-on Review: The New Triple Camera Value Champion for Just $100!


The Chinese manufacturer UMIDIGI’s latest entry-level beast, UMIDIGI A5 Pro, is the most affordable smartphone with ultra wide-angle triple angle camera. Since its open sale, the A5 Pro got lots of popularity and shook the budget segment for its incredible price of around US$100. Now, a hands-on video for UMIDIGI A5 Pro surfaces and let’s see why it’s a big hit.

UMIDIGI A5 Pro: FHD+ Display and Breathing Crystal Design

Gone are the big notch and large bezel, instead, UMIDIGI A5 Pro has a tiny waterdrop notch design with an all chin, which is rare in $100 range phones. This means the phone has a beautiful 6.3-inch full screen, like the much higher price flagships. The prowess of the screen is a marvel too. It has an FHD+ (1080p) display which means it is of distinct clarity – by comparison, the Xiaomi Redmi 7 has an HD+ (720p) display in similar price.

The back of the phone is all glass and comes in 2 colors: Breathing Crystal and Space Grey. The Breathing Crystal version shines like the Huawei P30 Pro’s one and it looks premium. The middle frame of UMIDIGI A5 Pro is metal, which protects the phone well. 

UMIDIGI A5 Pro: Capture More with Ultra Wide Angle Lens

In terms of rear cameras, UMIDIGI A5 Pro has gone for three camera lenses: a 16-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens and a depth lens with bokeh effect. This is the first triple camera setup on UMIDIGI phones and also the first phone with an ultra-wide angle lens in $100 price range. The images look good and the ultra-wide angle lens allows you to get more into the shots, just like on the Samsung Galaxy S10+. And on the front, the phone features a 16-megapixel high-resolution selfie camera.

UMIDIGI A5 Pro: Smooth Gaming and 4150mAh Battery

Powered by octa-core processor Helio P23 with 4GB RAM, the UMIDIGI A5 Pro can run the games smoothly like PUBG. Also, it can support more than one day’s normal use, thanks to the 4150mAh big battery. The A5 Pro has a triple slot design and it can support dual 4G standby and an expandable microSD card at the same time. And the phone ships with Android 9 Pie out of the box.
