This Smartphone Is A Cheaper And Better Alternative Of The Samsung Galaxy S8 by BlueBrothers(m): 12:54pm On Sep 13
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the best devices April 2017 gave us. However, September seem to be giving a better and cheaper alternative – a smartphone with better specs and features than the Samsung flagship together with a mix of something we have never seen before. I’m talking about the recently announced UMIDIGI S2 Pro smartphone.




The UMIDIGI S2 Pro though took inspiration from the Samsung Galaxy S8, totally trumps and outshines it. The device has a bigger 5.99 inch (approximately 6.0 inch) display. The side bezels commonly found on most devices were completely expelled on this device – as also seen on the Samsung Galaxy S8.



Speaking in terms of design, the UMIDIGI S2 Pro also trumps the Samsung Galaxy S8. Why?, you’d ask. Taking a closer look at the UMIDIGI S2 Pro rear design, you would notice how neatly placed and spaced the dual cameras are from each other and from the fingerprint scanner. This eliminates the occurrence of obstruction and blurring of the lenses of the camera whenever you use the fingerprint scanner – a problem many Galaxy S8 users complained about.





In terms of processor, speed and overall software, the UMIDIGI S2 Pro also wins. A faster 2.6 GHz Octa core 64 Bit processor which runs on the MediaTek Helio P25 MT6757T chipset is found on the UMIDIGI S2 Pro, compared to the 2.3 GHz processor on the Samsung Galaxy S8.

UMIDIGI S2 Pro

If the devices RAM size is also the subject of a head-to-head battle, the UMIDIGI S2 Pro will also outshine the Galaxy S8. The S2 Pro carries a huge 6 GB of RAM for heavy multitasking while the Galaxy S8 has a smaller 4GB of RAM. If you ask me, I think the UMIDIGI S2 Pro should be classified among the current smartphone kings – the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Also, it has a place amongst its fellow rugged smartphone army with 6 GB RAM we earlier listed in this article.



If pricing is also taken into consideration, you have yourself a winner – the UMIDIGI S2 Pro. While the Samsung Galaxy S8 costs an exorbitant $710 (approximately), the UMIDIGI S2 Pro comes in at a much more cheaper and affordable price tag. Presently, the pre-order price has been set at $229.99 on UMIDIGI’s official website, the launch price shouldn’t be any more than $250 – $300.

UMIDIGI S2 Pro

Although the Samsung Galaxy S8 has a better display quality in terms of display resolution and pixel density (1440 x 2960 pixels and 570 ppi respectively), the UMIDIGI S2 Pro will likewise do well as its display is also of top quality (1080 x 2160 pixels and 368 ppi) and only slightly differs from the S8.



With the UMIDIGI S2 Pro, you get 2,100mAh more of battery power as it houses a large 5,100 mAh battery, compared to the Galaxy S8’s 3,000 mAh.

So.. I ask you, whats your opinion?

Stop deceiving ignorant people. Have you used s8 before comparing it withthe other brand? . There are just two best brands out there with incredible value. Apple and samsung. If you have the money don't go for anything else.

Samsung S8+ remains the best currently.

With 6gb ram, design, durability, ultraSuper display, and 1nm processor, NOTHING beats my samsung.

NEVER IN YOUR LIFE COMPARE THIS TO S8 please.
Snapdragon 835 processor is way faster than this.Even if the s8 comes with a smaller battery its because the processor is designed to use lesser power than other processor that is why most flagship phones have a smaller battery.Please dont decieve people.
THE HELIO P25 PROCESSOR IS NO WAY NEAR THE SNAPDRAGON 835 FASTER AND LESS BATTERY DRAINER PROCESSOR.
DONT DECIEVE PEOPLE EVEN LEXUSG430 BOUGHT A UMIDIGI AND THE PHONE BRICKED ON THE FIRST DAY.
NAIRALANDERS BE WISE DON'T MAKE THIS MARKETERS COME AND DECIEVE YOU.

Immediately I saw cheap & better, I knew I was gonna read some hogwash, and I wasn't disappointed.

Trying to counter the op's hallucination with a slap back to reality is a waste of time (as we can all see). He's too far deep in the make-believe universe umgidi whatever has created that it's only a matter of time before he declares them the biggest smartphone brand.

This guy has never held an s8 before or seen one in actual person.

So how can you convince someone who has never driven a car before that his precious bicycle is not the way forward? Tell me, how?

The CEO, wrokers, cleaners, and every living thing associated with Umgidi( or whatever) are all obsessed with the s8. I don't even know which is more painful - the comparism or the alleged s8 killer that looks like an obese tecno P5.

Oh! So he modified it sef. grin
