UMIDIGI S2 Lite’s 18:9 Full Screen Design – Closer Look (Video)


We believe it’s quite safe to say that the UMIDIGI S2 Lite is – at the moment – one of the most eye-catching smartphones launched in 2018, at least in the budget-friendly segment. Its best selling feature is definitely the Samsung inspired display with thin top and bottom bezels; not coincidentally, UMIDIGI just released a video about that over on Youtube. Let’s watch it down below.

As we just stated above, the UMIDIGI S2 Lite sports a massive display with a 5.99-inch size, an 18:9 aspect ratio and slim bezels which make the screen take up almost 90% of the front surface. So you basically get a bigger screen in a smaller footprint, a win-win for both viewing experience and portability.


Going into specifics, the 18:9 display aspect ratio allows you to have a somewhat difference user experience when reading an email or sending out a message. The elongated screen does indeed allow you to have more space when setting the phone in landscape mode, with a bigger keyboard and thus bigger keys to tap on, which should simplify your typing experience.
