If you haven’t heard of IUNI, it’s not surprising. IUNI initially started out as an OS maker, but have recently come into the hardware market for a piece of the pie. The IUNI uses it’s own customized Android OS.iuni-os

IUNI review hardware

The IUNI U2 comes with Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2GB/16GB or a high version of 3GB/32GB. The ‘low’ version for lack of a better term is currently running $290.

The LCD is 4.7″. We find this an interesting choice given that many handset makers are going with a standard of 5.0″, but it’s often said that 4.5″-4.7″ is the ideal size for single-handed operation. Anything bigger and you risk your mobile taking a tumble unless using two-hands.

The resolution is 1080p. On a 4.7″ LCD, this gives the IUNI U2 a PPI of 469. That’s as retina as retina gets.

The battery is 2200mA, which for a 4.7″ should be more than fine. Though the phone being 1080p could hurt battery life some, the Snapdragon 800 seems to handle 1080p a bit better in terms of battery life than MT6592.

IUNI review camera

The images are fine. Not much better or worse than what most decent phones will put out. People expecting SLR or high-end point-and-shoot results are going to be disappointed, but these are more than adequate for digital sharing and printing. Interestingly, the camera on the IUNI U2 is reportedly 16MP.

IUNI U2 review design and style
iuni-u2-010

The phone is stunning looking. Aluminum instead of plastic, beautiful lines and slick colors with otherwise awesome hardware at sub-$300 prices makes the phone a very tempting purchase.IUNI-U2-36

Check out the packaging. This is awesome and shows IUNI has their thinking caps on. The triangular box may not be so conducive to shipping, but immediately gives an impression of class.

The body is machined uni-body aluminum and unfortunately the battery is sealed inside. That means battery-swappers beware. As well there is no SD slot for expanding memory. The other unfortunate hardware spec is that the U2 is single-SIM only. These negative qualities may not affect a large portion of users, but despite the otherwise beautiful looks and powerful hardware, the 3 detractors automatically send the IUNI U2 phone to the bottom of the list.

Conclusion

Though beautiful and with powerful hardware, it’s difficult to recommend a phone with single-SIM, sealed battery and no SD expansion slot. If these 3 things are of no consequence to you, the phone may be worth a hard look.
