The main lense is the same Sony IMX398.
Is it exclusively because of software optimisation? Do you think we could use another software with better optimisation?
The hardware of a camera is a very small part of the smartphone camera quality equation. It's getting to be more and more software that matters.

And that's assuming the sensor for the main lens IS the IMX398, somebody probably has to tear the phone apart to confirm, and even then we won't be sure since it's common for the same phone model to have different sensors when you're in the realm of some manufacturers (Xiaomi I'm looking at you).

Significant post processing work done by the processor, in this case a budget 2-year old MediaTek chip. What has intrigued me is if those 3 sensors actually work as the processor is unable to deal with the resolutions claimed by Umidigi according to Mediatek. Explains those pictures and not so cool to post fake specs.

I read somewhere this morning that the phone will be on sale again during july 15-17 for USD $95 and change, just in case anyone missed this.
Also a bunch of other Umidigi will be on sale on amazon.COM (potentially .CA) during this same time for Amazon Prime day.

Me too, it makes the phone SO much faster feeling. It's another example of puuuurrrrdddyyy vs. function. Google purposely slows down people's phones.

Light usage after 12 hours I have battery at 80%. I'm with Freedom in the GTA no issues.
