UMIDIGI A1 Pro: Review

UMIDIGI A1 Pro

The UMIDIGI A1 Pro is now official, a bezel-less beauty with dual rear camera and bugdet killer price. Just like the UMIDIGI Crystal and UMIDIGI S2 smartphones, the A1 Pro packs a bunch and will retail for a giveaway price as well.

UMIDIGI knows exactly how to make these affordable bezel-less beauties, with tendy design and specs. The A1 Pro packs 3GB of RAM, 16GB storage and two sharp rear cameras. Want to know more? Stay with me.


Design

UMIDIGI A1 Pro

Sports a Metal overall unibody that was covered exquisitely in glass, the A1 Pro reflects light beautifully. Just like what we saw when we unboxed the Elephone U Pro and took it out to meet the Sun. The stunning reflection of light on the UMIDIGI A1 Pro is simply magical. I'm also loving the Symmetrical aesthetics going on at the back.

Relax, that's just two horizontal cameras, a dual-LED flash and a black fingerprint scanner. A beautiful smartphone to hold and flaunt at will, especially when you're out and about. The device has sleek metal edges as well and available in Blue, Black and Silver colors.

Display

UMIDIGI A1 Pro

UMIDIGI has done it all when it comes to the bezel-less screen, well except for the top-notch design. I actually thought the A1 Pro would come with the notch, but obviously that's not the case here. Nonetheless, it dishes out a Full View 18:9 aspect ratio with minimal bezels.
