Umi Fair Review
Thanks to Coolicool for sending Umi Fair for a review

Umi Fair Review: VIDEO

Umi Fair Review: UNBOXING

What we have in the packaging are the UBS cable and a power plug.

Umi Fair Review: DESIGN

When it comes to the design, we are looking at a fairly compact phone due to its 5” display.
Umi Fair is lightweight and sits comfortably in the hand due rounded corners and a soft somewhat baby skin finish on the back.
On the front we have a 2MP shooter, earpiece and a sensor light. This time around, Umi chose to implement on-screen navigation buttons.
The chassis is made of metal and on the right we have volume rocker along with the power key.

On the top there is a headset jack and on the bottom we have a charging port.
As far as optics go, there is a 13MP shooter along with a dual LED flash.
Right underneath the camera, there is a fingerprint scanner.
On the bottom we have a speaker grill.
The backplate can be removed and underneath it you can find a removable 2000mAh battery, 2 SIM card slots and a microSD card slot.

Umi Fair Review: DISPLAY

The Umi Fair comes with a 5” 720p panel, which is definitely not the sharpest we’ve seen but it’s pretty good for a budget phone. However, the sunlight visibility could be better.

Umi Fair Review: UI

The battery life is decent but nothing really impressive. I could get over 3 hours of screen on-time on a daily basis and doing just some basic tasks.

Umi Fair Review: CONCLUSIONS

I would call Umi Fair just another budget phone from China. Well, it has a decent design and good build quality.
However, the main selling point, which is a fingerprint reader, does not work properly. It is very slow to setup and the real life usage is just a pain. It is not accurate and very slow, and it makes you want to turn this feature off.
In general, I was happy with the UI performance but those Google Play store errors and a few app crashes were annoying.
All in all, Umi Fair is not the worst phone we’ve seen in this price range but it is not the best either.
