GPU and Storage Performance

The good news as far as performance is concerned is that the Mali-T720 MP3 is much faster than the Adreno 306 found in the Snapdragon 410. This gives the Umi Touch a huge raw performance advantage (over 150 percent) as well as a slight on-screen advantage (about 14%) when comparing this 1080p display to 720p hardware like the 2015 Moto G.

Despite issues with performance elsewhere, I didn't experience any real struggles playing modern Android games at 1080p on this smartphone. When the GPU kicks into gear, it has enough performance to satisfy a screen resolution not often seen at this price point.

I was pleasantly surprised by the Umi Touch's storage performance, which is excellent for a budget handset. The Touch actually trades blows with high-end devices in both sequential and random performance, and this helps deliver fast app loading as I mentioned earlier.
