A few months ago I talked about a cool iPhone X design copycat phone called Leagoo S9. You can now buy that device. So let’s go over it quick to see what you get inside this smartphone! First of course it comes with the notch and the rear traffic light design camera.
Main specs: 5.85 inch Display, HD+ with 1212×720 pixel screen, IPS type, Android 8.1 Oreo, MT6750 Chipset, Octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and ARM Cortex-A53 28nm setup, Mali-T860 MP2 GPU clocked at 520MHz, 4GB of RAM, 32GB Internal storage, TF card support up to 128GB, 4G VoLTE support, Dual SIM Dual Standby, 2.5D curved glass display and Type-C 2.0 connector!
First thing you detect on Leagoo S9 is the massive display! This will be great for people that enjoy playing games or watch Netflix on their phone. The front camera comes with an 8.0MP sensor. The rear camera is dual and has 13.0MP + 0.3MP lens.
Other things that exist are OTG support and OTA updates. You can even unlock the phone with your face just as you would on iPhone X or Samsung Galaxy S9! On the rear side you can find a fingerprint sensor. It’s a very thick phone with 11.8mm thickness.
The battery which is built in has 3300mAh! I wish it was a removable variant but not even the low cost Android phones gives you that these days. Quick charging is on board with 5V/2A setup. You can also find 3.5mm earphone jack!
Leagoo S9 comes in three colour editions: Black, Gold and Blue. It looks very glossy all of them. I think because of the back glass design. Makes it looks like an ASUS ZenFone smartphone! The front has an all screen display with super small bezels. It looks like a premium iPhone at the front side.
It’s super nice how it runs Oreo version of Android. So you get great performance and the latest security updates and bug fixes. You get even high quality music from the speaker.
Vivo X21 is a new phone that looks very similar to the iPhone X! It has a huge display that will be a bit too much for majority of people.
Main specs: 6.28” Display, 1080×2280 pixel screen, Android 8.1 Oreo, Snapdragon 660 Chipset, Octa-core processor with 4x 2.2GHz Kryo 260 and 4x 1.8GHz Kryo 260, Adreno 512 GPU, microSD card support up to 256GB, 64/128GB Memory variant, 6GB of RAM, Dual main camera with 12MP + 5MP Lens, 12MP Secondary camera, 3.5mm earphone jack and Bluetooth 5.0 support!
In terms of OS you get a skin on top of Android that is called Funtouch OS 4.0. The display type is Super AMOLED same as Samsung usually like to use. The build is very premium with Front glass and Aluminium Body. It’s a super slim device with only 7.4mm thickness.
The non-removable battery comes with 3200mAh. One thing that is a bit sad is to see no USB Type C but only microUSB connector. But this is a mid range device in price so it’s not too bad. The colours it comes in are Black, Aurora White and Ruby Red. Another nice thing is how it has hybrid Dual SIM support. The weight is also very slim only 156 grams.
The fingerprint scanner is rear mounted as many others. The video recording function only supports 1080p not higher resolution recording so that is a bit boring.
On the top side you could see a notch installed. This thing started with the Apple iPhone X. Now other companies are starting to copy that especially Android phones. I like how the display is an all-screen display with no bezels. On the back side you can see the traffic light design that also the iPhone X comes with. But it doesn’t seem to protrude as much.
Oukitel U11 Plus is a more premium device than the other device that I talked about earlier today from the same company. This one is more in Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 zone!
Main specs: 5.7 inch Display, FHD resolution with 1080×1920 pixels screen, 2.5D curved front and with LTPS, 5 Points touch, Android 7.0 Nougat, MTK6750T Chipset, Octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, Mali T860 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, TF card support up to 128GB, Aluminium alloy shell material build, Dual SIM Card Dual Standby and 4G data speeds!
In terms of cameras the main one is 13.0MP lens with true dual flash LED and the secondary camera also comes with 13.0MP lens but perhaps it has a lower aperture. Bluetooth edition is the older 4.0. Wish it came with Bluetooth 5.0 since it’s fairly expensive device.
Another downside with Oukitel U11 Plus is how it’s still using Micro USB 5Pin connector instead of new USB Type C! In terms of thickness it is 8.3mm. The battery packed inside has 3700mAh and probably a non removable variant. One good thing is you still get a 3.5mm earphone port! Something that many new high end Android phones lack!
The two colour editions that exist are Jet Black and Blue. Wish we could have a red Edition too. More in terms of build this phone has been built using CNC craftsmanship and the aluminium feel will make it having a more premium touch.
Oukitel U11 Plus reminds me a bit about Huawei Honor 8 and Honor 9 in the sleek back design. LTE 4G+ will truly give you amazing data speeds. The Android experience will probably close to very stock look. Not any premium DOOGEE skin on board.
One downside may be that at the front it seem to have a bit dead space below the display. Reminds me about Sony and their Xperia phones.
Oukitel U22 is a new cheap smartphone that is great for a person that is just starting out in the Android space. It cost around the same amount as a Nokia 3310 successor edition!
Main specs: 5.5″ HD IPS Display, 1280×720 pixels screen, 2 Points multi touch, Android 7.0 Nougat, MT6580A Chipset, Quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, Mali-400 MP2 GPU clocked at 200MHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB Internal storage and TF card support up to 32GB!
The front facing camera on Oukitel U22 has 5MP + 2MP lens! And the rear camera also comes with dual but it has 8.0MP + 2.0MP! Another good thing is the fingerprint ID sensor and a detachable battery with 2700mAh! Usually in the Android space you do not even get removable batteries 2018.
This phone is pretty thick with 9.6mm thickness dimensions. Another downside is that it doesn’t come with any 4G data speeds. But it support Dual SIM Dual Standby. The two colours variants that exist are Black and White.
It’s nice that it has Android 7.0 Nougat it’s not the latest Android 8.1 Oreo but still fairly new Android release. On the rear side there is a good distance between the fingerprint sensor and rear camera so you won’t confuse the two. The camera design is same as on iPhone 7 Plus.
Another thing with Oukitel U22 is that it comes with 3 capacitive touch buttons on the front below the display. Something that many other companies are removing and instead starting to use on-screen keys.
The screen have a 2.5D curve. It even comes with a metal frame which is something we usually doesn’t see on mega cheap devices like this one! Very elegant phone for the low price that you pay.
Especially they managed to make so the fingerprint sensor looked very modern.
UMIDIGI A1 Pro is a smartphone that comes with a very compact nice design. It has a dual rear camera at the back side.
Main specs: 5.5 Inch Display, 18:9 aspect ratio, HD+ Type screen, 720×1440 pixel screen, Android 8.1, MT6739 Chipset, Octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, IMG 8XE 1PPC GPU clocked at 570MHz, 3GB of RAM, 16GB Internal storage, Expand memory up to 256GB, 4G connectivity support, Dual SIM support, Back glass + Aluminium frame build, 3.5mm earphone jack, 5.0MP Front camera with F2.4 aperture, Dual Back camera with 13.0MP + 5.0MP lens and F2.0 aperture and 5-element lens, Bluetooth 4.0 support and 3150mAh Battery!
First thing that I highly enjoy about UMIDIGI A1 Pro is the super glossy back design! It reminds me a bit about ASUS ZenFone 3! The screen on the front is almost an all-screen variant. Another awesome thing is how it has Face ID unlock function just as Galaxy S8 and iPhone X!
This will be a good device for tons of gaming. But I wish they would have packed 4GB of RAM inside instead of just 3GB! On the back side I like how there is a distance between fingerprint reader and camera lens so you won’t confuse them with each other.
I love the silver colour edition on UMIDIGI A1 Pro. I also really love how it comes with a pure system with latest Android 8.1 Oreo! Another nice thing is how it has a 4D curved body with rounded edges and multi-layer protection!
With Quick Charge it’s using 5V-2A and Type-C USB connector. It’s a pretty thick phone with 8.5mm thickness and 173 grams of weight. But I think many people will buy this device because of the low price. Some will even think it looks better than the Xiaomi Redmi 5 device! I wish some low end Android device would try to implement a Stylus in the body. I would buy that!
