UMi Plus E vs Samsung S7 – battery comparison (video)

UMi Plus E

In the past years phones have been getting surprisingly powerful and fast, you are now able to run multiple apps at the same time, play heavy games and much more. But how’s that any useful if you run out of battery in the middle of the day?

Thankfully several manufacturers have understood this issue — UMi being one of them — and have worked on how to improve battery life on their smartphones. This can be done both though getting bigger capacity batteries and optimizing software but also by making the charging process faster.

UMi Plus E

UMi says the slim and light UMi Plus E is capable of a full day of average use, due to the 690Wh/L high density battery manufactured by Sony, which provides about 26% more energy than other smartphone batteries. The UMi Plus E will also be one of the first devices with the latest PE+ (PumpExpress+) quick charge technology.

UMi decided to put the UMi Plus E against the Samsung S7 in a battery showdown, here’s the video:

Gizchina News of the week

In the video we see how the PE+ technology allows the UMi Plus E to get charged from 1 to 27% in 30 minutes, while the Samsung S7 only reaches 20%. Then they fully charge both smartphones with the UMi Plus E again ahead, charging to 100% in 1hr 50 minutes, the Samsung S7 only gets to 91% in that time.

The end result is quite surprising as the UMi Plus E packs a bigger 4000mAh capacity battery vs the 3000mAh on the Samsung S7. This to shows how MediaTek is really pushing Pump Express+ quick charge technology and getting it much faster day by day, which is great news for us Chinese phone lovers.

    Wow.. This is a stupid review from UMI. The S7 is on LTE and UMI Plus E is on EDGE connectivity and the S7 has daydream (screensaver) turned on while UMI Plus E has the screen completely turned off. Not forgetting the S7 has NFC turned on too and the fact that the video was cut halfway is very suspicious.

      Yeah well.. I think it should be taken with a grain of salt. It’s true that the Samsung is using more energy but the UMi Plus E has a 1000mAh bigger battery.
      I think MediaTek Pump Express+ is still showing to be pretty fast either way. Don’t you think so?

        I agree. I have nothing against Mediatek tho. They are a rather capable chipset manufacturer. If only custom rom developers work more on MTK devices.. Anyways, I just think that this particular video review from Umi is not fairly portrait. The condition should be judged in the same environmental settings to have an unbiased result.

          Yep, totally agree.

          Now the scenario is a bit different, MTK send the code, OEMs may decide to share it or not, in Example Vernee shared full sources of Apollo and didnt get any problem with MTK, actually they could share it at least with interested developers and get custom Roms working.

      Well, this is how UMi manages to show that their phones are better. Their comparisons are unfair.

      At the next test, the Samsung will have fully working the 4G data, the GPS, the Bluetooth, the NFC, the Mobile Hotspot, the LED flash and 50 apps open. The UMi phone will just have the Flight Mode and “wow, look, the UMi charges faster OR it has less battery drain”!!! =P
