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.

The Verdict

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.
