Design and Body
The design of the Umidigi A3 Pro is very great, it has a 2.5D glass at the front and back with a metallic frame which gives it a premium feel.

The phone display has the iPhone X kind of notch at the top which houses the selfie camera and other sensors.
Processor and Memory
The Umidigi A3 Pro is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6739 processor which has a maximum clock speed of 1.5 GHz coupled with PowerVR 8100 GPU for graphics. The processor is an entry-level one so don’t expect flagship performance from it.
The phone comes with 3GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB built-in storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot for expanding the storage if need be.
The entry-level smartphone has a dual rear camera setup which features a 12MP main camera with a 5MP secondary camera. The camera has features like panorama, face recognition and real-time filters. The camera can record 1080p or 720p videos both at 30 fps.
At the front, we have an 8MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture and features like selfie countdown and face recognition.

The phone comes with Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, WiFi, WiFi Direct, WiFi hotspot and WiFi display. The phone has support for OTG.
Battery and Charging
Umidigi A3 Pro comes with a 3,300 mAh non-removable battery. The battery is expected to last you throughout a day if you’re an average user. The phone does not support fast charging so you’ll spend a little more time when charging it.
The Umidigi A3 Pro runs on Android 8 Oreo out of the box. However, if you’re buying the phone now, it comes updated with Android 9 Pie out of the box.
Umidigi A3 Pro Review in 2020
The Umidigi A3 Pro is still a great entry-level smartphone even if it was launched about 2 years ago. The phone build quality is great and the performance is still okay for an entry-level. However, it has no update to the latest Android version so if you like updates it won’t be a good choice for you.
