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.

I have previously reviewed the Umidigi S2 Lite and the A1 Pro and found them to be superb based on the price.

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.
