UMIDIGI S2 Pro Review, UMIDIGI, formerly known simply as UMI, is a brand that has always moved with ease in the most premium mid-range. Without discarding some more accessible proposals, the truth is that it is a manufacturer that dominates as few that of “giving more for less”. The UMIDIGI S2 Pro is the company’s latest invention to deliver a terminal with a lot of muscle.
UMIDIGI S2 Pro, the “hardcore” version of the UMIDIGI S2
The UMIDIGI S2 Pro is the hyper vitaminized version of the UMIDIGI S2, with an increase in power in terms of RAM, processor and storage space. Even the camera has been optimized, delivering a device capable of facing other outstanding terminals of the current medium-high range.
Design and screen
As far as the screen is concerned, the Pro version of the UMIDIGI S2 offers a substantial improvement in terms of quality. While still maintaining 6 inches in size, the resolution is extended to 2160x1080p (Full HD+).
Protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 4, the screen, manufactured by SHARP, offers an aspect ratio of 18: 9. This allows us to contain a 6 “screen in the space that an ordinary 5.5-inch smartphone would occupy. Or what has been the same, a screen-to-body ratio of 90% (percentage of the screen in relation to the body of the terminal).
Another of the highlights in terms of manufacturing the terminal is its protection technology, with a nano-coating that protects the device from splashes, water, and dust.
Power and performance
Entering the body of the S2 Pro, we find wicker more than satisfactory. On the one hand, we have an Helio P25 Octa Core processor running at 2.6GHz, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable internal storage! Someone correct me if it is not, but I think it is the first smartphone with such an amount of internal space that we can find in the price range of a mid-range. Very little competition in this aspect.
On the other hand, the system works under Android 7.0, and in general, we can say that it is a mobile with a lot of muscle. One of the best SoC of Mediatek with a bestial RAM that delivers one of the best experiences at the level of fluency and execution for users who love this type of terminals of Asian origin.
Camera and battery
The UMIDIGI S2 Pro camera uses a triple lens. A dual rear camera 13.0MP + 5.0MP with flash and autofocus, and a powerful 16.0MP front camera that is always appreciated for lovers of selfies.
As for the battery, we found an impressive 5100mAh. A very difficult autonomy to match and light years of all its range competitors. Normally, the bad thing about introducing such large batteries is that the weight of the terminal increases considerably, but this is a side effect that we do not see in the S2 Pro. The new UMIDIGI phone stays at a surprising 188gr. How did they do it?
The UMIDIGI S2 Pro has a USB type C port, Bluetooth 4.0, micro SD card slot and Dual SIM (Nano + Nano). In addition, it supports FDD-LTE, GSM, WCDMA (2G / 3G / 4G) and WiFi 802.11a / b / g / n networks.
Finally, it should be noted that this UMIDIGI S2 Pro will come with a Type-C USB connector to power its battery, in addition to allowing data transmission. Of course, we will have a very good connectivity, although it has not been specified if we will have an NFC chip to enable mobile payments.

Price and availability
The new UMIDIGI S2 Pro is already in pre-sale phase, and has a price of 299.99 $, in GearBest. A terminal for lovers of the most premium mid-range of the moment.
Remember that the UMIDIGI S2 also has a cheaper model, with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage and 1440x720p screen, available at a price of 185.99 $.
In any case, a terminal to take into account, and a safe bet for UMIDIGI with which to face 2018 that is more interesting than ever. For my part, without a doubt, I am left with that incredibly loose battery and the reduced weight that the manufacturer has managed to fit -without forgetting the 6GB of RAM and the 128GB of internal space, which is all a candy-.
