Umidigi launches a new phone, the Umidigi Power

Seems like Umidigi is at it again and launched another smartphone. This one is called the Umidigi Power because, apparently, it focuses on battery life by having a big battery and a lower power CPU. These claims, however, seem to be mostly marketing because the battery has a capacity of 5150mAh, just like the Umidigi F1 Play. Still, the phone should last longer because the Power has the Helio P35, a lower-power CPU. Still, the Umidigi Power has some decent…

Elephone P11 comes with glasses-free 3D screen and $250 price tag

I thought that glasses-free 3D screens on mobile devices proved to be a gimmick a few years back, however, with the revival of this by the RED Hydrogen One, others are trying to get in on the action. Yes, the Hydrogen One proved to be a flop, but that never stopped Chinese companies to try and do something similar, even if it is just a gimmick. Here comes the Elephone P11, a mid-range smartphone that has a glasses-free 3D screen…

Today was a big day for Huawei. They announced the new Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro smartphones that focus on photography. You can read about them all over the internet, on bigger sites that have better coverage than we can currently offer. So I am not going to talk about this.

There is a big market for cheap Android phones. Just ask Xiaomi, Umidigi and Elephone, companies that all have $200 smartphones available. However, there are people that can’t afford even such devices or people that need a secondary/back-up smartphone that can be as cheap as possible, but still decent enough to be used.

Cubot MAX 2 comes with a corner cut-out, mid-range specs

Cubot revealed a new smartphone this week and they decided to offer an interesting design for the screen. There is still a notch, but it is placed on the side, making a cut-out in the screen’s corner. According to them, this is more natural and offers less interruption in the content. Sadly, the 6.8″ screen is only HD+, having a resolution of just 1352x640px. Still, for a low to mid-range device, it is OK. Other specs for the Cubot are…

Redmi 7 revealed with SD632, dual-camera setup and excellent price

We knew that the Redmi 7 will launch soon, but I don’t think anyone was expecting the device to be so well priced. Today the company revealed this budget smartphone and it puts most other similarly priced devices to shame. The Xiaomi Redmi 7 comes with Snapdragon 632, an octa-core CPU that has 4 heavy cores and 4 efficiency cores. The device is paired with 2GB to 4GB of RAM and 16GB to 64GB of internal storage.
