UMiDiGi Z1 Pro Unboxing
The unboxing experience is a different, the box flips open the same way a phablet phone case does, and the charger and power cable case flip out the other way, a little bit like a transformer transforming. The phone is located right at the bottom which in my opinion is a better idea since it protects the screen. The phone comes with a basic TPU case and a glass screen protector.
UMiDiGi Z1 Pro Hands On
The phone itself is very similar to the previous UMiDiGi phones, similar design and metal, however it for some reason feels less high quality than the Z Pro (thinner metal maybe or just placebo?). The red colour is gorgeous, chilli red and catches your attention. Using it in a case is most likely the right choice, but man does it look great without. Size wise its not small for a 5.5″ phone but its relatively thin.
UMiDiGi Z1 Pro First Impressions
I setup the phone very quickly and played around with the phone, the screen is very saturated with a very slight purple tint that is more visible on video and photos than in real life. The audio is very loud and OK quality, more bass would be appreciated but its good enough for most things.Video quality is a little strange, with framerate seeming to jump between 30fps to 10fps constantly, giving a slightly jittery effect. I’m seeing if this is a problem with settings before talking more about it.
I’ll be doing a full review, so stay tuned!
