Here is the point where two identical phones differ from each other. The UMiDIGI S2 comes up with LPDDR3 RAM OF 4 GB and the Helio P20 SoC, which clocks at 2.3 GHz, whereas the S2 Pro has LPDDR4X 6GB of RAM and P25 chip with 64-bit octa-core processor which runs at 2.6 GHz. The slight difference is for the people who are way too conscious about Dual- Channel RAM and processing things rest both the product are too worthy in their price range.
Talking about the identical processing, it has Mali-T880 MP2 GPU for graphics which runs at 900MHZ. The working of both the phones shows no dissimilarities in first look and usage. If we go on deep on the very minor technical inbuilt specification, then one may be surely able to understand and reasons behind it as it ultimately depends on person to person use.
Let’s have a look at the Unique feature which differs these two phones from others. The battery life provided is 5100 maH which can last easily two days and 20 days stand by time. The company claims of usage of 10 hours of gaming sessions, 34 FHD episodes of TV series, browse 120 news headlines, etc. The battery requires just 30 mins charge to keep that lasting for a day and 150 mins to get complete 100% charge. Which is too fast if we compare it to the charging time of other smartphones.

If we talk about the overall performance of both the devices, then there is no big difference. Just RAM, Processor and Display resolution varies. If you need to do heavy working using your phone, then you should go S2 Pro as it shows up astonishing in running heavy applications. Otherwise, both the products are pretty good. It is just that Pro version is updated to Android 7.0 and anyone who still wants to work in with Android 6.0 without updating it then S2 Phablet is there!!
Both the device looks modish, sleek with side design like iPhone 7, you also got dual camera with really great picture quality. The other best part that I already discussed in the review is its high performance battery and large bezel-less display. I guess nothing more we can expect in such price range.
