Umidigi have been making waves in the budget market for the past few years, producing a large number of phones to suit all tastes and budgets.
The Umidigi Z2 is one of their latest models and is available direct from Amazon. When I ordered the phone on Amazon, it was £189.99 but has a £15 voucher available making it £174.99.

Design and Build
Umidigi always packages their phones well, with a premium look and feel. The phone ships with a charger, USB cable, SIM ejector pin, a headset jack adapter and it comes with a TPU case for some added protection.
The phone itself looks and feels great with its stand out feature being the 90% screen to body ratio of the screen and its notch, these things that are normally found on much more expensive phones. The rear of the phone is a glossy plastic with a carbon fibre type design to it. While the plastic shell may be less desirable than other materials I have no issue with it, it makes the phone a little lighter and it is less likely to smash than glass. The twin cameras on the rear have a small bump to them, with the fingerprint scanner being slightly recessed and sitting slightly below them.
The phone has a USB-C port for both charging and audio. It is excellent for a phone this price to use USB-C, but it is disappointing that they cut out the 3.5mm jack.
