Ulefone Vienna vs. UMI Touch – cage match for the duo


It’s quite obvious that the Ulefone Vienna and UMI Touch are models aimed at the same customer base so directly pitted against each other. The market is a pretty ruthless place and any sort of a flaw or bad quality is quickly punished.

Today we have a video putting these two phones really head-to-head directly and because they are really very similar devices hardware-wise and in the same price range it’s an interesting comparison. And of course it could help those undecided customers, who are pondering which one to buy.

Vienna is scoring the first points in the audio department with the dedicated audio chipset NXP 9890 offering clear and nice sound with almost Hi-Fi quality. Plus point for UMI Touch is the 4000 mAh battery capacity, while the UMI Touch offers “only” 5V/1A charger so the charging time will be higher.

In the display department it looks like Vienna would be the winner, at least judging by the video and the same could be probably said about the camera output quality of the both phones.

But in end it’s only the customer who is always right and the decision is ultimately his. So check out the video and decide for yourself, which one would you prefer if given the choice.

    sorry dude. I’ve been testing vienna and touch. the only feature of vienna has ( music sounds ) is simply crap. not to mention the other build quality. software unstable battery drain like crazy. in this case, umi touch has a win.

    UMI TOUCH that I just received is everything a superb smartphone need to be. Has all the essential features most prominently the true TOUCH and the smoothest metal body that comes with it. I am enjoying it now better than even my previous iPhone 6. Marvellous UMI TOUCH.

      I’ve bought the umi touch too. it’s an ok device with good battery life. Especially for the price. But you sound like an ad!!!

        But a lot of evaluation feedback, Umi Touch’s battery is only 3500mAh.

    I bought Ulefone power before, i am so disappointed. The camera performance is pretty bad and poor battery-life.

    Maybe you should go compare with OPPO or VIVO since they both has a good name on hifi. this way could proof if ulefond vienna is truly good at that. but comparing with umi touch just simply doesnt make sense.

    UMI staff come out in a few minutes to save their reputation. But that just reflects their fear inside or how poor their products really are. It’s simple for them to prove their products are good, just taking a video to show it. Sadly they can’t, because UMI Touch may be just as bad as the above video shows. It’s useless that UMI staff pretend as users to say how good their product is and how poor Ulefone is, because both models have been arrived at real users’ hands while they can share their real experience on forums.

      umi has average quality and some support. which is good if you seee the price range of the devices the bring out. It’s not crap(maybe pre production models the reviewers got?) but not the best either. better than the average chinese company(which isn’t saying much)

    The gap between advertising and in-kind, so do not buy cheap stuff, you’ll get a terrible build quality.

    This video is authentic at least about craftsmanship of UMI Touch, because in another professional reviewer’s video, it is just as crap. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OT86neHCqM

    Personally I find that Umi’s quality tends to be above that of Elephones at least… I have a Umi Touch and it’s fine… It’s not upto the quality of my OnePlus One but then it’s a completely different price bracket…

    Umi Super Ulefone Vienna and have the same camera, all Panasonic MN34172.

      Ulefone is better than UMI in all ramification.

      Ulefone Vienna Camera is better than Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro with 16MP nonsense camera.

    UMI employees have taken over the comment section.

    I will say it over and over again. AVOID UMI CRAP PHONES. Never spend a dime on their useless thing call phone. You will get nothing but disappointment. Look for Xiaomi, meizu, Ulefone, zuk, lenovo etc.

    19 seconds into the video and you get “Ulephone Vienna has perfect craftmanship”. A $150 phone. That tells you all that you need to know about this video. I stopped it at that point.
