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.
