UMIDIGI Z1 PRO Review
Ever since the Chinese based smartphone company changed their name FROM UMi to UMIDIGI, the OEM have not ceased to keep churning out great and beautiful devices. We have reviewed the UMIDIGI C Note which is a beautifully designed 5.5-inch metal smartphone with big 3,800mAh battery, the 5-inch UMIDIGI G was also a nice smartphone. The 2GB RAM, Quad-core processor and 8MP primary camera were good enough but we weren’t having much of a thing for the design of the UMIDIGI G as it was a total replica of the iPhone 7 device.
Nonetheless, it doesn’t change the spotlight is gradually beaming on UMIDIGI and their smartphones have become something to be on the lookout for. It is in this light that we would be reviewing the UMIDIGI Z1 Pro.
One of the UMIDIGI Z1 PRO’s selling point is its ultra slim body structure. Yes, I know you may be thinking there are many smartphones slim or thin devices out there by different manufacturers. That’s actually correct. But for a device with a large 4,000mAh battery to have a width of 6.95mm, that’s a really impressive milestone.
The UMIDIGI Z1 PRO has a metallic body build and premium design that will definitely play a wide role in luring potential customers to purchase a unit. Everyone wants that beautiful and sleek device they can hold in public places with utmost pride and confidence.
The UMIDIGI Z1 PRO is available only in two colour option – the RED and BLACK variants.

The display has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and is duly protected against dust, scratch and shattering by the Corning Gorilla Glass 4. This display is also built in a way to consume less battery power – as low as 30%.
PROCESSOR, OS & STORAGE
Taking charge of the Z1 PRO smartphone according to UMIDIGI is MediaTek’s Highest power-efficient processor – the MediaTek MTK6757 Helio P20 Octa Core processor with speed of 2.3GHz.
Also, the UMIDIGIZ1 PRO will come out of the box with the latest Android Nougat v7.0. Honestly, feels good to see majority if device manufacturers incorporating the Android Nougat onto their devices; be it a mid-range or a high-end device.
Furthering on, the Z1 PRO provides a huge 64GB on-board storage to keep your multimedia files and other documents. Although there really might not be any need for an SD card, you can expand go ahead and expand your storage space up to 128GB via the available SD card slot. The massive 6GB of RAM is also incredible. Processes, switching back and forth between apps, playing games and many other processes will run without hassles, lag or the device heating up. Enough space for app data accommodation.
When you have Sony sensors on a device, nothing but the best shots are expected. The UMIDIGI Z1 PRO boasts of a dual camera set-up at the rear in the form of 13MP and 5MP sensors are the primary cameras. Secondarily in charge of photos is the single 5MP camera upfront the Z1 PRO.
As stated in the title of this review, the UMIDIGI Z1 PRO has a large non-removable 4,000mAh battery. The battery will provide long periods of usage and relatively longer period of standby time; up to 400hours.
This battery, although large, will charge as fast as possible owing to the USB Type-C port and the presence of Quick Charge Technology.
