UMI Touch 4G: A Sub-$150 Metal Spec Beast From GearBest [Sponsored Post]
In recent years, if you wanted a phone with a metal unibody chassis, 3GB RAM, a 64-bit Octa-core processor, a 1080p display, LTE connectivity, a 4000mAh battery, a 13MP rear camera and a fingerprint reader you’d probably have to pay anywhere from $600-$800 for the privilege. Even Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi, Huawei and Oppo (among others), notorious for offering high specs for an affordable price, would have charged anywhere from $300-$500 for such a phone. However, it’s 2016 now and everyone seems to have an all-metal phone whether flagship or mid-range. What is still unusual, though, is to find an unlocked sub-$200 phone with such beastly specs, and that’s exactly what you can get today from GearBest in the UMI Touch 4G.
The 64-bit Octa-core processor comes courtesy of MediaTek, the 13MP camera is a Sony IMX 328 sensor and the “2.5D” 5.5-inch 1080p display is Corning GorillaGlass 3. You get 16GB onboard storage and a MicroSD slot which supports cards up to 128GB. Since it runs what appears to be a mostly-stock take on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, you’ll have no trouble integrating whatever additional storage you might add. Speaking of the OS, it also comes with a feature called “Rootjoy” which lets you install any one of several preselected ROMs (really skins from other Chinese OEMs) on your phone, such as MIUI, Flyme (Meizu), Vibe (Lenovo) and EMUI (Huawei).
