Hi, DroidChina friends,
UMi Rome Hands on
When getting a UMi Rome in your hand, the first thing you will notice is its elegant design, with a frame made of metal, which gives us the feeling of being using a device with a higher price. Despite being made of metal, the device is not at all heavy, weighing only 177 grams including battery.
UMi Rome chassis has a similar curve to it as the UMi Hammer S or the Xiaomi Mi Note, wrapping the rear edges around, what makes this device feel very comfortable in the hand. The chassis is machined to a through 100 processes, in order to give it a smooth finish, similar to high-end devices.
Looking around the edges of the phone, you will discover the usual features, such as power button or speakers, plus a USB Type-C, the new connectivity standard which is currently used on high-end devices such as OnePlus 2.
At the rear of this device, we can find a 13-megapixel Sony IMX179 sensor, accompanied by a dual LED flash, an unusual feature for a phone of this price. The UMi Rome also incorporates a front camera and a front LED flash, ideal to shoot selfies.
Speaking of the screen, the glass panel has a 2.5D glass curve to it for a nice smooth transition. The panel incorporates AMOLED technology, a feature usually found on high-end devices, and that will help users to improve their battery consumptions.
