UMI Plus battery secrets revealed


UMI Plus

Battery life is  the real nemesis for all of us mobile phone users, because it can turn even the most powerful and cool phone into a brick in the worst moments possible. So it’s now wonder the manufacturers are trying to focus on it and of course hype it, ideally beforehand just like UMI is doing with their new UMI Plus model.

They seem to be pretty confident about the battery performance of the UMI Plus and even went into all the details to provide some facts. Hardware-wise the battery has a 4000 mAh capacity and it’s manufactured with Sony cells, high density 690Wh/L unit. They claim two days of battery should on a single charge, but of course that’s highly individual depending on the strain so we have to see the real tests. But another interesting claim is that after 900 charges the battery still retains 80 % of the capacity, sounds promising.

The good battery performance is allegedly also affected by the custom UMI Tri-control Charge Technology 3.0, where the three IC chips control and adjust voltages and other stuff to keep the battery cooler and more durable. And of course the UMI Plus PE+ quick charge support is also a good thing to have, although usually the quick charge supports actually slightly degrade the battery long term life.

And of course the software side of things can’t be neglected either so the UMI Plus is featuring some extra saving battery modes for the best results in the field. All in all we are quite curious how the UMI Plus will fare in real world tests, because on paper it looks good. But you know how that goes sometimes…

    How’s that different from the Super and MAX exactly?

      Been trying to figure that one out myself.

        Just the camera sensor

          Of course in respect to ‘battery secrets’… that’s no news and no secret. That is just on a no-news-day spreading useless spam for this company.

          We all know the UMI MAX is the Super minus 1GB RAM and 16GB ROM and the Plus is the Super with swapped out rear camera Panasonic for Samsung and moved the fingerprintreader from back to front. I guess unlike Elephone who only announces smartphones and works on renders, not actually doing that much making to renders come to life… UMI might do little to change it up, but atleast they do it, I guess. At Elephone they’ve announced the P9000 Edge MONNNTTHHSS ago… P20 been due for quite some time now. Now the S7 has popped up (Samsung clone much? Atleast they offer a 5.2″ option in the vast ocean of 5.5″ models)… the R9 is basically the S7 swapping out the glass back for a metal one. But why stop there… let’s announce the C1. I mean, that is just a little silly to me. On the other hand… Ulefone and Vernee seem to keep things one thing at a time. Just… not very exciting stuff going on there.

          Not really a fan of Cubot/Homtom/UHANS and what have you. I could go for a Nubia Z11, but I’m secretly waiting for a phone with atleast X20 processor, Snapdragon 821 or so cool too. 5.2-5.7″ 2K (you know, VR). Bezelless/edge-to-edge/curved. Front LED flash, rear dualcam set-up. SIM1+SIM2+MicroSD (not SIM1+SIM2 OR SIM1+MicroSD), IR Blaster, FM Radio, NFC, fingerprint reader on front or side, etc and Z11 is just not quite that. I like the new LG V20, but it’s not dualSIM and only 85% right. Maybe that Xiaomi Note 2 can get to 95% of fulfilling my wishes… Meizu surprise? P9000 Edge… Vernee Apollo. I think I’ll keep rocking the Nubia Z9 until Chrismas. Must be something cool out to get from Santa by then. 😉

            wel as far as x20 goes the homtom ht10 has an ok camera, good implemented iris scanner looks good overll with global 4g looks like an alright phone only one review exist currently though,

            as for your mighty high standards hopefully the mi note 2 or leeco pro 3 will deilver the v20 is alright to me but as a flagship i wouldnt go for it it has some build quality issues with light bleeding and the camera doesnt seem that stellar to me maybe because of early software

            i dont know if the leeco pro 3 will have the nice bezels seeing their track record and it has a back fingerprint scanner soooo… with 3 months remaining i think shp has closed for meizu well they still need to submit a p20 device as do vernee,elephone and xiaomi

            cubot has the mythical s9, after the elephone s3 i dont think elephones renders wont come to reality so that s7 has like a 99% chance of being the real deal

            another x20 in the making is the oukitel k6000premium coming in october, and i think waiting till december is a good idea so you can pick the best of the best

    The energy density is 1st class smartphone wise, I better be called a 720p sales man because I’m a say this again 720p on a p10 is bad news

    I don’t think the battery capacity is real. I bought Umi Super which has a 4000mAh battery. But the battery life is sucking. My friend’s vkworld T6(3000mAh) lasts so much longer than Umi Super. I am bumped.
