Umidigi Design, Build & Review
This device after purchasing it, i observed that it comes with a water drop or dew-drop style of notch which gives the display more in present space on the front for a Full-view visual experience. The UMIDIGI F1 joins the growing list of smartphones from the OEM to sport a dew-drop style of Top-notch quality. It is almost as similarly and sturdily built as the recently launched UMIDIGI ONE MAX by the same manufacturer.
Umidigi F1 is a bit thick owing to the big built-in battery but at 186 grams, surprisingly it is very lightweight when compared to other smartphone devices with smaller batteries. At the top of the display screen, UMIDIGI managed to squeeze in the earpiece and some sensors just right above the selfie camera to give it the much desired feel.
The phone is made available with two microphones: one at the top and the other, at the bottom. Other components at the bottom include a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C port for charging and data transfer, and built-in stereo speaker.
The dual cameras on the rear unit of the phone sits at the top-left corner and are vertically arranged in the apple iPhone X smart device style: with the primary camera at the top, secondary camera at the bottom, and dual LED flash in between. The UMIDIGI F1’s design is finished off by the three different color options: Black, Red, and Gold.
The secondary lens of the Umidigi phone helps add Bokeh effects to images while other camera features like real-time filters, panorama, face recognition and others, also makes sure your images come out looking good. The camera is capable of shooting 1080P videos at 30 frames per second.
The front-facing camera embedded in the dew-drop notch is 16MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and other features like face recognition and selfie countdown. Combination of the device’s primary 16-megapixels and secondary 8-megapixels 6-element lens with f/1.7 aperture on the rear would give decent images.
While using the UMIDIGI F1 device it is not hard to see that it uses an IPS display with a FHD+ (1,080 x 2,340 pixels) resolution to give the best visual experience when watching movies and just browsing through web pages.
The display is a 6.3-inch screen and despite its size, and it can conveniently be held and operated in one hand as it comes in 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The Pixel density comes in at 409 pixels per inch (PPI), better than the 403 (PPI) of the Umidigi z2 pro, the company’s 2018 flagship.
A 2.5D curved glass covers the screen and though it is scratch-resistant, you might be disappointed to find out that it doesn’t come with display protection of any sort. You might have to input yours if you so choose.
