umi hammer s launch

UMi has started sales of their $130 UMi Hammer S today, keep reading for a refresher on the phones amazing specs.

I’ve had hands on time with the UMi Hammer S and although it is a heavy phone, it also feels really well made and (I feel) represents great value for money. Of course you guy’s haven’t had the luxury of trying the phone, even on paper the specs are good.

For $130 the UMi Hammer S features a durable metal chassis, but none of the odd interference issues the Iron suffers form in the audio dept. The phone is the cheapest to come equipped with USB Type C for charging and file transfer, plus it has a Sony IMX179 rear camera and fingerprint scanner on the rear too.

        The build quality won’t be a problem just like the previous hammer, and it’s quite feature-packed with usb type c, fingerprint sensor, decent camera sensor, irda, removable big battery (not sure about this one, but andi said so in the hands on), and i’d add speaker on the bottom too, which is something that i value quite a bit on a phone rather than a rear speaker.
        The soc isn’t great but it isn’t that bad either for daily use, plus it really isn’t power hungry, so the big battery would last for ages…

        This said… For now, that’s great only on paper… Let’s wait for a review to see if it performs as it should…
