There is no doubt in our minds that the UMi X2 is going to be one of the best quad-core, 5-inch 1080 phones for 2013 when it goes on sale, but it’s not going to be the only one and it certainly isn’t the cheapest! Which is best for you? The UMi X2 or the Sheng X7?
We’ve said this time and time again, on paper the UMi X2 is basically a more affordable version of the awesome Oppo Find 5! Everything which makes the Find 5 such an amazing phone is present in the X2, but at just a fraction of the price!
5-inch 1080 HD display, quad-core CPU, 13 mega-pixel rear camera! The X2 has it all, and up until today was heading to become the undisputed Chinese phone champion of 2013, but then the Sheng X7 arrived!
Gizchina News of the week
The Sheng X7 has been on Gizchina a few times over the past few months, but only after seeing real photos of the prototype are we starting to become excited about this awesome phone, but can it really compete with the Umi X2?
In a word, Yes, the Sheng X7 offers everything the UMi X2 does, but manages to do so at a lower retail price! 5-inch 1080 display, quad-core MT6589 CPU and a 13 mega-pixel rear camera all wrapped up in a stylish body!

So which would you buy?
This is a difficult call! Both phones are practically identical in the hardware departments with the only notable difference being battery size. With that said though, does the larger battery of the X2 really call for a 500 Yuan ($80) price hike?
On the other hand, are you happy to pay the $80 extra for a phone who are known to deliver, or do you want to take the risk and step in to the unknown with the Sheng X7? Let us know in the comments below!
