The Umi Hammer was one of their more popular models and they’ve now given the phone a reboot in the form of Umi Hammer S.

The Umi Hammer S carries the MT6735 SoC, this is the recently typical SoC manufacturers have been using to keep costs down for consumers and I’ve found it to be a very capable SoC, pushing Android without any issues.
We also see the largish battery coming in at 3200mAh. With the 720P display, this should provide very good battery life. Good enough to get nearly all users through the day. Moderate and light users should see a couple of days with a battery this size.
Umi is using the Type-C USB port which allows for faster data transfer with hardware capable computers. Type-C is backwards compatible with USB 1, 2 and 3, so there’s no need for worrying about being able to transfer and connect to older PCs.
Stylewise, the Umi Hammer S is sporting CNC process metal sides and a nice square design. The front glass is 2.5D arc style, which always adds a nice element of class to a mobile.
Also worthy of mention is the touch ID feature, which allows you to unlock your phone with a tap on the back. This is really where I prefer it on a mobile, as it’s much more comfortable and natural to scan your fingertip on the back as opposed to the center front.
A new feature recently come to several China mobiles is the universal infrared remote. This will allow you to control all of your compatible remote control gadgets with your Umi Hammer S.
