New UMi Z Likely to be First Phone with MediaTek X27

We have received information from a credible tipster that UMi will be among the first, if not the first, OEM to release a phone with the recently-announced MediaTek X27 CPU, as soon as this month. Not only that, but a rendering we received of the new UMi phone, above, suggests that it'll have a dual-camera...

The $99 UMi Diamond is Shock and Scratch Resistant

Our friends at UMi have just released a new model: the UMi Diamond, which, as the name suggests, is built to be tough (as a diamond...get it?) thanks to its impact and scratch protection. Not only is it likely to survive a drop unscathed, but it's packing some pretty good specs for a phone that...

Win a Pixel XL from XDA and RhinoShield, Because Bumpers are Back

Phone skins are really great to add style to any phone, plus they're not expensive, but they provide minimal protection if you happen to drop your phone. On the other end of the spectrum are cases, which are generally more expensive but offer much more protection. Cases are bulky and they don't let the beauty of...

These different colors are not applied to a shiny plastic body like you see in many smartphones. These have a very metallic look and are encased in 15 layers of light-catching material. This makes the color of your device significant because it doesn't just change the look of the phone, but it affects the refraction...
