The impossibly-cheap UMI IRON and its aluminum body

Posted in Oct 19, 2015 in News, Smartphones, no comment

UMI is a manufacturer which surprised us with a very powerful smartphone almost a year ago, the UMI Zero brought powerful hardware and a very beautiful design without leaving a neat and elegant lines.



Today we talk about a very promising Iron UMI phone that features eye scanner,RGB notification led, mt6753+3gb ram+16gb rom for just £149.99, with its design and specifications is among the best devices below £200.

Design and materials: Aluminum price of laughter
UMI Iron design is really nice, with the back cover made of aluminum. Umi has always been concerned with this design and the Iron is not an exception. At first glance highlights of this device it is built on aluminum body , which even eliminates the possibility of removing the battery itself conveys a sense of premium quality and design. Despite this it is a phone quite light as its 148 grams make it even lighter than the iPhone 6 Plus.
Although its design is very refined, the camera protrudes slightly, despite the curved shape of the back along with the arrangement of the camera in the upper left corner make it protrudes in the same way as iPhone 6’s camera. Interestingly, the peculiar arrangement of physical buttons on the left side, where the power button is located below the volume button.

Iron UMI: A smartphone full of surprises.
Umi brings not only power, it also includes Texas Instruments DirectPath technology that ensures clear audio without distortion even at very high volumes , will make us has a much more enjoyable experience when listening to the music. Besides all the usual and useful software on the phones when it’s camed out of the manufacturer (Smart OS access through gestures, etc) with the heart rate sensor and a native app of UMI, we can measure stress levels and track your keystrokes. The app is quite complete, since in addition to the already mentioned featured such as blood sugar, cholesterol, etc., and get a thorough control of our body anywhere .
Another fancy feature is that Iron UMI includes the eye scanner recognition , ie using the front camera software, UMI can tell who’s using the phone with his eyes. The manufacturer claims that the program is able to distinguish the veins of the eye and the shape of the eyeball, although I doubt it, as it works with glasses or low light, it is certainly a nice feature, especially now with widely used Fingerprint scanner features, this is an interesting alternative that requires no additional hardware, only a front camera, something relatively common in phones today, almost any range, on the other hand it reminds the Face Unlock, a feature that was left as anecdotal for most users.

ROOTJOY provides a simple interface that will allow anyone to effortlessly switch from ROM.
Besides all this, we have at our disposal ROOTJOY  an amazing tool with a very elegant and simple interface gives us three functions that manufacturers often do not offer, and is that this software allows us to flash packages, make backups and ROM support. It also shows if the catalog of ROMs available, it’s over search by XDA perfect ROM, since we have at our disposal versions approved by UMI, including AOSP ,  Cyanogen  and  MIUI , although it expectto have the same options as there are for other devices of this brand (HTC OS, LEWA, EMUI, VIBE …) appear.
