UMiDIGI A7 Pro is the successor of the A5 Pro smartphone. It is a budget smartphone that sells below the $100 mark. This edition comes with refresh design, a better camera than that of its predecessor, all these with the latest Android 10 OS! In this review, we take a deep look at the specs of this device in a bid to explain features such as display, design, and price.

The dimensions of the device are 158.7 x 74.9 x 8.5 mm and it weighs 185 grams. Further, the fingerprint scanner is placed at the back of the phone. The body materials of the device are glass front with an aluminum frame. There are two colors of blue and black for the device.
UMiDIGI A7 Pro Display
The display type in the device is an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen of 16 million colors. Furthermore, the display size is 6.3 inches, there is also 403 ppi density and 83.6 percent screen to body ratio. Its resolution is 1080 x 2340 pixels.
UMiDIGI A7 Pro Processor
The processor inside UMiDIGI A7 Pro is MediaTek MT6763V Helio P23 with process technology 16 nm. In addition to that, the CPU speed is clocked at 2.0 GHz working with Mali-G71 GPU.
In this UMiDIGI A7 Pro, storage features show the device is in two variants. There is 4 GB paired with 64 GB, and 4 GB paired with 128 GB. There is a memory card slot to boost the internal storage for up to 128 GB as well.
Powering the UMiDIGI A7 Pro is a Li-Po 4150 mAh battery that has no fast charging and no wireless charging as well. It can only charge the phone on a standard level. The good thing about this battery is that its talk time is up to 29 hours, while the standby time is up to 400 hours.
Speaker & Call Quality
Because the smartphone has its speaker, it does well when it comes to sound. Also, the audio jack type is 3.5mm which has sound enhancements such as active noise cancellation with a dedicated mic, and NxP Box Audio. Together, these work to enable sound when the user calls or receives calls, or when media is being played.
Software Features & Sensors
The UMiDIGI A7 Pro is powered by latest Android v10. Also, sensors in the smartphone include fingerprint, proximity, light, and compass.
Camera, Video, & Image Quality
There are four cameras placed to the rear of the A7 Pro. They are 16 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP + 2 MP. At the front for selfies, there’s a single 16 MP. Also, camera features are digital zoom, auto flash, face detection, touch to focus, continuous mode, HDR, etc. However, these cameras produce low-quality images and videos. Video resolution is into two places – 1080p and 720p.
UMiDIGI A7 Pro Price
The official price of UMiDIGI A7 Pro is set at $99 which when converted is 37,600 NGN.
Though the display features of the smartphone are tuned up more than I expected, the major for me, which is the battery level is a bit disappointing. However, the phone raises my confidence in the battery area by coming with a capacity that is sustained over a good period. For those of us who don’t like charging our phones all the time, this is truly a nice phone, provided we can make a few sacrifices.
