UMI X2 VS ZOPO ZP980 Comparison Review

As we had earlier discussed about both the phones in our reviews separately, now we bring you the detailed comparison between both the devices which will help the users to select the phone that suits best to their needs. Starting with UMI X2 phone which is from the new Chinese Mobile Manufacturer that had been recently launched in the Indian Market and sports number of new features and is also getting good response from the customers. It packs 5.0 inch Full HD Screen, Quad Core Processor and various other features. On the other side ZOPO ZP980is already available for pre booking and have features such as the 5.0 inch Full HD screen, 13MP of Camera and various features.

Our in depth Comparison will let you choose which one is better for you depending on the features that these devices supports.

X2        VS       ZP980

Display and processor

As we had stated above that UMI X2 packs a super 5.0 inch Full HD display screen with IPS Retina Screen and Gorilla Glass 2 display for extra protection of the screen. Also the X2 comes with the screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixel which was expected as the device has the HD screen. On the other side ZOPO ZP980 packs the same 5.0 inch Full HD screen, Corning Gorilla Glass 2 and IPS Retina display. Also ZP980 has Screen Resolution of about 1920 x 1080 pixels with the pixel density of 441 PPI that makes the perfect viewing experience for the user. From the given specs it is clear that both the devices comes with the  almost same display and it is hard to specify among the two but we can state that ZOPO ZP980 will give better output to its users as it is supported by better Processor compared to  X2.

When it comes to the processor UMI X2 boosts 1.5GHz Quad Core MTK6589T processor,whereas the ZP980 also comes [launching very soon] with the upgraded 1.5 GHz Quad Core MTK6589T processor that is the newer Turbo processor and performance wise is somewhat better as compared to the X2. Though both the devices are Quad Core devices and will give good processing speed to the users.So on the processor wise the ZP980 is better than the X2.

Camera and Memory

UMI X2 comes with dual camera options it sports 13 MP of primary camera at the back side with Flashlight and Auto Focus. On the Front side it sports 3.0 MP of front camera with Video Calling options. On the other side ZP980 also comes with the Dual camera options and ZP980 sports 13 MP of primary camera at the rear side with Flashlight and Auto Focus, on the front it has the 5.0 MP of camera which is an additional feature and is not present in most of the devices. In video mode both the devices comes with the HD option which will record 1080p videos with 15fps and the fine mode that too records videos in 1080p at 30fps. So from this it is clear that ZOPO ZP980 has an edge over the UMI X2 as it has better Front Camera and also the Rear Camera clarity is also good.

On the Memory aspect UMI X2 comes with 32 GB of Inbuilt Storage and can be expanded upto 32 GB via Micro SD card, also it has the 2 GB of RAM that makes the apps on the device to run smoothly. Now in ZOPO ZP980 it also has the same 32 GB of Inbuilt storage capacity and 2GB of RAM so on the storage side both the devices seem to be an equal competitor.

Battery and Other features

UMI X2 packs the massive 2500 mAh of battery that seems to be good for the 5.0 inch screen device, though the device comes with the HD screen and will pump up lot of energy from its battery but the battery seems to be a decent one, and can give a good backup to the device. Also the ZOPO ZP980 boosts the same 2500 mAh battery and supports the device nicely. So here also both the device seems to have the same battery specification but it seems that UMI X2 will have good Backup as the Processor and Camera on the ZP980 are on the higher side and will require greater power.

On the features UMI X2 and ZOPO ZP980 both the devices supports Dual SIM capabilities. Also for the connection both have  Bluetooth,Wi-Fi,3G and USB capabilities. Also both the devices runs on the Android v4.2 Jelly Bean Operating System. So most of the features in this two devices looks to be almost same. The UMI X2 has a generic design, on the other hand the ZP980 has a bold and non-curvy design.

Key Specifications

After comparing all the features it seems like ZOPO ZP980 with better processor and camera has some edge over the UMI X2. But rest of the features are almost same on both the devices. Though ZP980 is costly by almost 2K to the UMI X2, that seems to be a major setback as both the devices offer same features, this difference can be a deciding factor between the two. But if you are really looking for better processor and budget is not a problem for you then you can opt for ZOPO ZP980, otherwise UMI X1 with almost same specification can be picked at a lower price.

  3. Umi X2 is also coming in 1.5Ghz MT6589T chipset soon in india and the front camera is 3 megapixel on UMI X2 turbo version

  4. I guess you need to state the fact correct as Zopo 16 gig zp980 Turbo version (the white colour) is Actually C2 ultimate version from the parent manufacturer. It is not ZP980.

    What ever the Zopo India says doesn’t mean that you guys repeat like parrot. You guys need to ask them why they are selling C2 with a name of ZP980?

    Good luck!

  5. Well first we don’t repeat things that Zopo india tell us, we have nothing to do with the name of a phone which a company wants to give, they may have some marketing strategy behind it – so they want to name it Zopo 980. Will update you anyways once I have an answer from them 🙂

  6. UMI X2 turbo version release with 2Gb RAM or lower with 32Gb ROM and what is the expected release date.

  7. Umi x2 with turbo will start getting delivered to customers booked it after 10th of this month.

  8. What are the battery specifications of ZOPO ZP980 Turbo edition? Are there any service center of Zopo mobile at Kolkata, West Bengal, India?

  9. The zopo mobile official website is showing the battery capacity of zopo zp 980 turbo edition is 2000mah. But here in your site the battery is showing 2500mah for the same mobile phone. So which one is correct?

  10. You can only buy the zopo 980 from zopo mobiles website as if now, as if now there are no services centers in kolkata but in future they plan to open it as per the information we have.

  11. None of these phones have voice call recording, but you can search for some apps which can do this for on any phone.

  12. Hey Abhishek,

  14. This website were paid by zopo industries or what? Clearly since the beginning you are pro to zp980!!
    Why the zp980 cpu is better than the umi x2?? If both have the new MTK6589T 1.5ghz processor!!!
    Battery of zp980 is 2000mah, please take look to this official zopo website:
    and UMI X2 battery is 2500mah!!

    Clearly UMI X2 is better than zp980!!!
    The only stuff that zopo wins is that the front camera have 5.0 pixels and Umi x2 3.0 pixels, but there is a big difference? please!!

  15. Does Umi X2 turbo have WiFi b/g or b/g/n?
    Are you sure Zopo zp980 has gorilla glass? The oficial website doesnt mention that

  16. isnt UMI X2 CHINESE ??

    besides are the cameras really worthy their specifications..unlike wickedleaks Passion Z which is a fluke

  17. gurcharan singh
