Oppo managed to live up to the hype yesterday when they launched their all new 5-inch Oppo Find 5 phone. While the Find 5 is no doubt an awesome Android phone, it might be out of reach for some consumers due to the $499 price tag, but don’t despair as the UMi X2 offers a similar spec for less than half price!
The UMi X2 is set to replace the X1 as the company’s top of the range phone earlier next year, and as such it get’s a much more powerful CPU, better screen and improved rear camera. In fact, the UMi X2 offers a similar specification as the Oppo Find 5! (at least on paper).
Sources close to the UMi X2 project are reporting the new phone will come equipped with a quad-core CPU, 13 mega-pixel rear camera and 1920 x 1050 5-inch display, all of which are available on the Oppo Find 5 but at double the price.
As you would expect with such a price difference though it would be unfair to compare the Umi X2 and Find 5. For example where as the Oppo has a Qualcomm S4 quad-core chip which should support most major networks, the X2 will get a quad-core MT6589 CPU, and while both phones have 13 mega-pixel cameras, it is unlikely the UMi’s will shoot at 120fps or capture 100 photos in 5 seconds.
But if you aren’t interested in all the features and just what a high-performance quad-core phone, with decent rear camera and HD 5-inch screen, the UMi X2 might well be a great budget alternative to the Oppo Find 5.
