UMIDIGI Z5 4G Phablet with Helio P90

Umidigi has already postulated a strong overall package for many devices at a significantly lower price. The recently tested Umidigi A5 Pro could convince us in almost all points. But does Umidigi manage to keep up with the Z5 for almost $300 also in the upper middle class? We’ll find out for you.

The Umidigi Z5 features a 6.3-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. Given the price, we would have expected an AMOLED panel. Especially as moderate backlight bleeding occurs around the notch and at the lower edge of the display. The black levels are also on a rather meagre level. Otherwise, the display convinces with a good color rendering and saturation. Thanks to MiraVision, the colours can also be adapted completely to your own requirements. The maximum brightness is sufficient for most application scenarios. In strong sunlight, however, the display is difficult to read. However, the automatic brightness control worked without any problems.

The Umidigi Z5 runs with a weakly adjusted version of Android 9 (May 2019). We did not find any maleware in our test. In addition, the Google Play Store is fully certified. Overall, the Umidigi Z5 is also very well optimized again. The system runs mostly smoothly: without hangers and jerkers. The system is of course multilingual and can also be set to German. The integrated gesture control works very intuitively and is a good alternative to the navigation bar. Under Smart Assistant you will also find a Screen Capture, Firewall and Appblocker function. But we miss the Widevine Level 1 certification, which is necessary for the HD playback of Netflix and Amazon. Unfortunately not very pleasant with the screen size.

In the Umidigi Z5 works the Mediatek Helio P90. This is a mid-range processor that competes with the Snapdragon 660. For most games and standard apps like Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp the performance is of course sufficient. With the GPU, however, the Z5 is clearly behind the possibilities of the Lenovo Z5’s Snapdragon 710. The 6GB RAM, on the other hand, is also suitable for intensive multitasking.

The battery performance is the big strength of the Umidigi Z5. A 5150 mAh battery is installed. In our test we made it into the second day without any problems. The Z5 easily approaches the operating time of the Umidigi S3 Pro. In the PCMark Battery test we reached a runtime of 11:58 hours. The device is charged with PumpExpress (18W) in about 2 hours.

As for shooting, the Umidigi Z5 uses a dual camera with 48 + 12 megapixels. The second lens is a telephoto lens with 2X optical zoom. Insgesant we are torn back and forth by the quality of the main camera. For a price of well over $250, the photos are absolutely appropriate in daylight. There are enough details and also the dynamic range is on a solid level. With the telephoto lens, on the other hand, especially with landscape shots, the images are often blurred and lack detail. The camera is then only able to deal with weak lighting conditions to a limited extent. Without flash, images are very blurred and poor in detail. The flash, on the other hand, is often much too bright.

The 20 megapixel front camera, on the other hand, is a small bright spot and can convince with a relatively good quality. Once you have found the right distance, the images are very sharp and rich in detail. With less light, these images also remain useful thanks to the f/2.0 aperture. An additional 48 megapixel mode can be activated in the settings. A small difference can only be noticed when zooming directly into the image. The AI mode, on the other hand, is completely unusable. Nothing is done here, as you feel it.

More info: UMIDIGI is getting ready for its next flagship, UMIDIGI Z5 Pro, and has just teased a 64MP sample image shot by the device.
