Unihertz Review

Based on 173 reviews
Such a breath of fresh air!

I absolutely love my Titan Pocket! As someone who lives with finger and hand issues, typing on a screen has been rather hard for me to do. The keyboard has been amazing and nostalgic! Also, I tend to drop things a lot, but my Titan Pocket, tho showing tiny dings, is still motoring along like nothing happened! I'm about to take it on the Appalachian Trail, and I have zero worries!

Thank You Unihertz!! So far, the best physical keyboard out there

Hey Slim, reverse the comma and period placement on the physical keyboard (it would then be the best compact physical keyboard phone on the planet!). The period/comma placement isn't ideal imho. Of course, If that is the only con, that is saying something.

Incidentally, like others, I have had all of the physical keyboard phones ever made, and the Titan Slim is the best you can buy - by far - in terms of use and 4G+ functionality. When the carrier dropped the last BlackBerry, I bought the Titan Slim as a holdover while waiting for the Astro or Pro1x. Titan Slim works out of the box. Others promise and have yet to deliver. Slim makes and takes calls, texts, and has a two day battery to boot. It is not a BlackBerry, but it is close. Slim is my daily driver and proud to use it. It needs only the period/comma reversed, a micro-SD slot, and the newest Android software. If a Slim II 5G comes out, I will buy.

I haven't had a problem with the fingerprint sensor placement like others have mentioned, but I also keep it in its leather pouch to protect it from the elements. Oh, and if Unihertz wants to continue to innovate, reach out to us power users for input on future models. We know what we want in a physical keyboard phone.

Thank you for building the Titan Slim!!!

Teeny Tiny Terrificness!

I bought the Unihertz Jelly 2 because I was so sick of all the huge phones that were a strain on the fingers to use for long periods of time and also never fit comfortably into half my pants' pockets.

I was prepared for a steep learning curve and sub-par performance considering the price, size and some YouTube reviews. But I have been using the Jelly 2 as my only phone for months now (only just realised there was a review tab on the site) and am SO in love with how comfortable it is to use.

I use my Jelly 2 for calls, to track my runs, message, read through some documents and e-books, play music, make contactless payments, watch Netflix (yes, I watch movies on this!) and even play Mobile Legends Bang Bang (won 16 of my last 20 watches with MVP for some).

Granted, switching to the Jelly 2 takes some getting used to but practice makes perfect. I now type with almost the same amount of accuracy as on a 6" phone.

The battery life is surprisingly good; I can last from 5.40am till 9pm having tracked a run, handled some messages and calls, about an hour of video, one MLBB game and some music.

I only wish it were more rugged; may have to upgrade to an Atom L one day! In the meantime, I love how I barely even feel my Jelly 2 on my arm strap when I run!

This is my primary personal device

I really do -like- this phone. I tried/own a "lite phone II" which I find entirely too restrictive. This was an "upgrade" to my venerable Palm PVG100 (pictured in comparison below). There are always trade-offs going small. I think the Jelly 2 is an admirable step in the right direction please continue to improve this basic design.

The Good: Decent battery life, Android 11, All the basic phone functions you would expect from a smartphone. Headphone Jack. Decent performance. Standard screen dimensions, Decent sound quality, (speakerphone is meh). Excellent storage & ram specs, camera is quite functional, if not overly exciting. Covers all the US LTE bands/carriers, good reception.

The Bad: Note the size comparison to the PVG100, The Jelly 2 is just a "teensie" bit too small. The flat footprint needs to be the actual size or a mm or so larger square than a credit card, so that you can put a credit card sized card in the case. Note the 'wallet' case will not close with a card in the holder. The phone is a little fatter than I would like. I would prefer something between this and the PVG100 (which had abysmal battery life). The GPS is somewhat weak, hard to do without a decent antenna.

If android auto would ever get reasonably stable ...

This phone is perfect for someone who does not want to be tied to their phone, but want's to carry around a small but fully functional device for those occasions when you may need it. I avoid doing any work on my phone, but I do from time to time like to review what I want to look at when I get back to a desktop. Further I want full access to my contacts/address books no matter where I am at.

The wish list: ** Slightly larger rectangle (credit card+) ** , thinner (maybe ~12-14mm but keep the battery life). Camera's keep getting better but keep the costs down. USB-C docking with a desktop function (like DeX). I would love to be able to put on a standard linux build with "Plasma Mobile" and get rid of my laptop! (I also have a pinephone, Hey! it's the *wish* list).

My ideal device would allow me to carry it in my front shirt pocket with a card case (wallet or back) an ID, and a card or two

I love my Jelly 2 and use it as my primary phone

I love this phone so much. It works really well just like a normal smartphone but due to the mall screen size i spend lot less Time on my smartphone and more time being in the moment. I Wish it had better camera though and a thinner and lighter design build. Otherwise I am very happy.


I have nothing but good things to say about this device, which I have lovingly dubbed 'the bean'. The hardware feels surprisingly high quality for the device's, low price, and the colour is absolutely stunning in all different kinds of lighting. Bean runs perfectly, as expected, and to my surprise was running Android 11 out of the box, rather than the advertised Android 10. The haptic feedback when using the capacitive navigation buttons at the bottom bezel of the display is satisfying without being too much, and despite the size of its battery, I get surprisingly good life out of it. I use the combination of slide typing and voice to type so the small keyboard area doesn't act as an issue in my case, and this has actually become my preferred device for music as my wireless earbuds sound better on the bean than they do on any of my other devices. The programmable side key with its nice accent color is also a very functional and welcome addition, and the device is perfect for my job where it's smaller stature in my pocket makes it less likely to get wet when I'm making beverages and cleaning dishes. Very very glad I bought the bean, and I would recommend buying the bean if you think you would have a use for a smaller device, or even if you just want it because it's cute.

Fantastic phone, small but very usable. Love it!

I tend to only use a phone for talk and text, and prefer models that are smaller than my iPod Touch, preferably a good bit smaller. Preferably the size of my old LG enV2, if I'm being honest.

I used the Unihertz Atom for a month but found the keyboard too small even for my minimal uses. It was excellent as a way to deter excessive, or any, screen use, but even typing a word or two was frustrating. I switched to Jelly 2 about a month ago and the difference is amazing. I am absolutely in love with this little phone!

Even with my bad eyes and clumsy fingers, texting is very doable with no more errors than I make on my iPod Touch keyboard, especially with the Swiftkey keyboard app that supports swype typing. I wouldn't want to type long emails on it, but I have no problem texting or typing short emails. Discord, Facebook, Flickr and Chrome are all very functional and easy to use even on such a small screen. Despite the fact that I try to limit my phone use to talk and text, I find myself using it for other functions that I'd normally use over WIFI with my iPod Touch.

I appreciate that Jelly 2 has more RAM and storage than Atom, and that it supports a micro SD card in the second SIM slot. I'm using it with a Verizon SIM card that was activated in a Verizon phone and switched to the Jelly 2. So far, no problems with Verizon as my service provider. Although I liked the rubberized grip of Atom, I prefer the removable case that Jelly 2 has, and hope it will be available as a separate purchase and in different colors at some point.

I prefer the older Android app drawer style UI, but the Clean Launcher app decently provides that functionality. I'd also like it to have a larger battery, although I know that's a trade off with keeping the device size small. I was getting 3 days between charges with the Atom but can't seem to go more than 2 with Jelly 2, probably because I'm tempted to use it for more than just talk and text. Overnight battery drain is about 1% per hour on standby in battery saver mode. I don't like that you can't see the battery charge level in battery saver mode. The icon at the top doesn't display a visual level or percentage.

If you value a small footprint over screen or battery size, Jelly 2 can absolutely function as a main smart phone replacement. If you enjoy watching videos or playing games on your phone or need to do a lot of typing, it may not be the best choice. If you want a tiny, rugged phone to use as a temporary alternate to a larger or more fragile device, or something that will really discourage screen use, go with the Atom.

Photos below include a comparison with the Unihertz Atom, iPod Touch and LG enV2.

Unihertz Atom, a pocket gem!

The Unihertz Atom is a pocket marvel, as it manages to have the function of a capable smartphone in a tiny form factor. You get a great, pocketable device that has good performance. 4gb of ram and a helio p23 processor make this device very snappy. Because the screen is so small (about 2.4") it doesn't need a lot of processing power to render the pixels on screen.

Everything works as it should, the phone is running android oreo, so is fairly up to date. It has 64gb storage (no micro SD card support sadly, but the 64gb is nice in this price range). The phone is running virtually stock android, with a few additional apps added by Unihertz, which are ideal for outdoor working or activities (It is a rugged phone after all).

The phone has a 2000mah battery. This battery while not amazing, should get you through a day and possibly two or more days if you are a frugal user. The most I managed was 4 days, but that requires you to switch off a lot of background apps and put the phone in battery saver mode and airplane mode overnight. Over two days with moderate to heavy usage I was able to get about 6 hours screen on time. The battery was down to about 8% at that point. The problem is the phone loses a fair bit of charge in standby. You can mitigate this by turning WiFi and/or mobile data off when you're not using it and turning on the battery saver. Overall I think the battery life is decent especially considering the battery capacity. It also charges quite quickly. At just over an hour for me from 15%-100% using the supplied charger. (I didn't get a three pin adapter with the phone, but bought a 3 pin travel adapter that works fine.)

The camera is probably the phone's weakest point, although I use it all the time. You can get quite decent pictures from the camera in good light. It's also quite fast at taking the picture. HDR mode really helps with landscape shots, making the colours pop. Or you can use your favourite image editing app to adjust the colours later. I use Snapseed for this. The camera sometimes has a focusing issue where the picture or video looks blurry. When this happens it best to re-adjust the angle until the image in the camera viewer looks clearer. Low light images are not great so avoid taking pictures in these conditions if you can. You also need to try and keep your hands steady as it will blur the picture otherwise.

Video can also can good as long as the lighting is sufficient and you check for any blurry focusing issues. The biggest problem with capturing video is the lack of image stabilization, so you will need steady hands to avoid a jerky video. If the video isn't too shaky, you can improve it by using the stabilise feature in the Google Photos app.

Despite the camera's faults, because of the phone's small size, it is convenient to take out of your pocket and take a quick photo or video at a moment's notice. I don't think the camera is terrible, because you can get some really nice pictures. It's just getting used to the quirks. (See some of my pictures attached)

The rear mounted speaker on this phone is actually quite loud. I was surprised how loud it goes! It can sound a bit tinny at high volumes, but you should have no problem hearing it in noisy environments. The phone also has a headphone jack which is very useful if you only have wired headphones or require an aux connection to a speaker or car sound system.

Phone calls sounded clear enough to me and WiFi is generally reliable. The phone is 4g capable and works well for me using an ee SIM. I did notice the phone heats up quite a bit when using mobile data for a while, so you might want to be careful leaving mobile data enabled for long periods.

Gaming is certainly possible on this phone, but the tiny screen makes it very hard to play games effectively. I stick to the ones requiring few onscreen controls. Crashy Cats is one I play a lot and while it is a bit harder to see what's going on, you do get used to it.

The keyboard is also tiny, so expect to make a few typos when using it. You do get used to it with time, or you can use swipe gesture keyboard controls or even voice controls using the Google assistant. It might also help you to put the phone in landscape mode while typing, as the keys will be spaced wider apart.

Fingerprint and face unlock are the two main security methods. I have set up both. The fingerprint scanner is great when it works, but often doesn't, I think because it just too small for your finger. I use my thumbs to unlock and the successe rate is about 6/10. Face unlock is quite reliable, but the default use requires you to first press the power button and then look at the screen to unlock. You can't unlock the phone when the display is off using this method, whereas you can with the fingerprint sensor.

I like the fact that the phone has notification LEDs. You can change these in the settings and have a red, blue or green light for different notifications. I found that reall...

Do not mistake this for a kids' phone or a toy or a joke. This is a happy little phone.

I love the feel of this in my hand. I love the color. I love the memory stats. The battery hangs in there for phone setup and turning off and on and changing all the settings. Lowest it's been has been 49% after a day of playing with it and setting it up. It doesn't run hot. The cover they sent with it is just as cute as this phone. The screen resolution is so good you will do a double take and say Wow. You are thanking whomever created this for doing so. The keyboard is small but perfectly doable. You just type and with few errors. It comes with different sounds than the usual. What a nice surprise that was. I have been using i.Atype keyboard for years so that was the first install. It is a keyboard that allows you to adjust the height of the keyboard. So that works really well to make the keys a little larger without having to turn the phone a landscape view.

This phone is a real phone. You just use it like your regular phone only you are not lugging around a big bulky, or too tall and skinny phone. This fits the hand like a glove. One-handed stuffs works well. Icons look gorgeous on the screen.

It's a cool little happy phone and I'm very happy with it. I'm older so the SOS button is good. There is a red button on the side for setting that up, but right now the red button turns on this really bright LED light. It updated to from 10 to 11 without hiccup. I am using a 256 gb SD card.

Only things I wish were different. I have to try to figure out how not to share my sd card with the phone, and I wish that the screen saver that is on the phone was a better quality.

I'm still exploring but just wanted to come on and say don't worry with it. It works. Oh, it has reminder feature. You tell it to remind you to get up and take a walk, etc. I use Tello as my phone service. Calls are clear and crisp. No dropped calls so if you using Tello not to worry. Great service provider for a great phone. They use T-Mobile towers.

If you turn on the sound enhancement feature, the volume of this phone, and the clarity of the sound will leave you sockless. Makes a great little music player. And the equalizer works. I'm not a geek so can't get into all the endless little mechanical details. All I know is I am getting rid of great phone, and I bought this phone and have no regrets.

Tiny, powerful, minimalist phone w/hidden features!

This tiny phone packs a big punch! I purchased the Jelly 2 to try and reduce screen time and practice a more minimalist approach to smartphones. It has served that purpose very well so far! The phone is much quicker than my old LGV20, and the battery life is superb for such a small device. The extra thickness is noticeable but worth it for me personally for the extra battery life. This phone does everything a normal-sized smartphone would do, including running all my apps (music streaming, navigation, email, messages, banking, stock trading, calender, radar, etc.) in a much smaller package that is just more fun to use. I also love that in includes a headphone jack, IR blaster/remote, and even a fingerprint sensor. Can't ask for much more than that in a tiny 4G smartphone.

The Good:

Speed; snappy processing/navigation speeds, probably due to such a small screen and fewer pixels. But I'll take it! Absolutely blasts past my old LGV20, which was a flagship in 2016 and has a Snapdragon 820 chipset.

Camera; I'm going to include this as a pro for this device since I wasn't expecting much from a phone this size/price point. I was pleasantly surprised however, and most photos have turned out pretty decent. Good lighting helps. Whether close up or taking nature shots, the camera isn't "great", but it is certainly acceptable. (See pics for reference)

Fingerprint Reader; after registering the same finger twice, I get nearly 100% success using the fingerprint reader. That's a good thing, because it's my preferred method of unlocking the phone. I also like that it was kept on the back of the phone, rather than an in-screen reader.

Calling; I was worried about the mic being so far from my mouth while talking on the Jelly 2, but so far I haven't had to repeat myself. I am able to hear the other person, and they are able to hear me just fine. The earpiece speaker may be a bit quiet if you are in a noisy environment. I did notice "HD" on the screen during my last conversation, so apparently the phone is capable of HD voice calling as well. Has not dropped any calls yet.

Battery life; I put this phone to the test my first few days, purposely charging the phone to 100% and using it until it literally died in my hand. I can stream music, search the web, use navigation, send texts, and even make short phone calls for hours before the battery fully dies. I do wish the battery was removable so that it could be easily replaced once it begins to deteriorate. Hopefully Unihertz will offer a battery replacement at a decent price when this does inevitably happen. I would estimate I'm getting about 4-5 hours of screen-on time, with an overall battery life of about 12-14 hours with moderate to heavy use. Not bad for such a tiny phone!

The Bad:
Non-removable Battery; it pains me to see that the battery is non-removable. This means that when the battery eventually loses its ability to hold a charge, you will have to either send the phone back to Unihertz for a battery replacement, or just replace the phone entirely. Since the phone is not a uni-body design, and is at a lower price point, I can't understand why we are not given the option to remove the back and pop in a new battery ourselves. To me, this is a major downfall of the Jelly 2 over the long term.

Hidden features:

Speaker Boost - Go to Settings > Sound > Advanced > Sound Enhancement; now toggle on "BesLoudness" to get a noticeable increase in speaker volume.

Face Unlock - Go to Settings > Security > Face Unlock (enter your pin) > Enroll Face; now let the camera familiarize itself with your face, and you now have the Face Unlock feature on your tiny smartphone!

Increase Keyboard Size - Go to settings > System > Languages & Input > Virtual Keyboard > Gboard > Preferences > Under "Layout", Select "Keyboard Height" > Choose "Extra Tall"; you have now maximized the size of the on-screen keyboard to allow for easier typing.

Overall, the Jelly 2 is a great little phone. It's powerful/speedy, has a decent camera, good call quality, great battery life and an adequate display for its size. It will do everything your larger smartphone will do in a smaller package. I do worry about the build quality with the aforementioned jiggly plastic buttons on the side. I also wish it had removable battery. But these are small gripes compared to the overall device. I'm glad I purchased the Jelly 2, and it has even become my daily driver for now! I look forward to seeing what Unihertz puts out next. Would highly recommend the Jelly 2!

Awesome! Can't wait for version 2.0

Awesome throwback. Durable phone and keyboard is a great experience. I really hope a newer version comes out with a few upgrades. I would never go back to other phones with this having a few changes. Things I wish it had:
1) WiFi can handle mesh networks
2) had 5g connection
3) better WiFi connection in general
4) next step up on processor (doesn't have to be flagship)
5) better cameras
6) sexier and thinner phone design (isn't the most important)


Unihertz knocks it out of the park in every way

Écran brisé

Le titan est tombé dans 30cm d'eau et l'écran est brisé.

Je recherche la pièce pour remplacer..

Prise en main réussi avec la largeur du BB10😀

Avis après plusieurs mois

- La taille me faisait un peu peur mais je m'y suis très vite fait.
- Coté autonomie/recharge, lampe, vision nocturne rien à dire, les attentes sont respectées.
- Mon bouton volume up ne marche plus (défaut de fabrication ?), c'est dommage mais gérable sans problème (volume down + slide)
- Stabilisation photo/vidéo à améliorer un peu trop faible à mon goût.

Très content du rapport ensemble/prix (mon 1er rugged phone pas déçu)

Liked it till it fell apart

Fun phone, pretty good conversation starter especially when using google-pay, before that everyone thinks its a dumb phone. Also gives you a pretty good reason to not be quick texting back and

Used it for about a year till the side rubber started disconnecting from the plastic casing, didn't glue back down very well and the glue blocked the sim tray. In attempting to re-open it the sim tray broke making the phone unusable as I couldn't find a similar sized simtray anywhere online. Pretty sad was a great phone till that point

Better than my iPhone

I have been an avid iPhone user for almost 10 years. A few years ago I was searching the internet for the worlds smallest smartphone for giggles, and I found unihertz. I purchased the first gen Jelly phone in 2020 which I still have. My little one uses it now. I currently am using my Jelly 2, and it functions just as well, if not better than my iPhone. I switch back and forth from time to time- I love the looks I get and how amazed people are when they see me talking/playing on my little phone! I have had the Jelly 2 since 2021. I will always be a fan of the Jelly collection!!!

Vergesst iPhone 18 pro max and Samsung S 28 Ultra, hier ist die echte Zukunft

Es gibt viele Erklārungen und Videos die Produkte hochleben oder vernichtende Kritiken darüber schreiben um vielleicht etwas Reichweite, Aufmerksamkeit oder einfach ein Produkt zu verkaufen.
Dagegen bich ich ein einfacher Kunde, der nur ein zuverlãssiges Smartphone gesucht hat, was auch in Notsituationen zuverlãssig funktioniert.
Das habe ich im Unihertz Tank vorgefunden.
Es ist super robust.
Wasserdicht, Staubdicht.
Hat eine wirklich starke Lampe auf der Rückseite verbaut.
Nachtsicht Funktion.
Einen Großen Bildschirm.

Viele praktische Werkzeuge.
Und vor allem Dingen,die größte Ausdauer die je ein Smartphone bis heute hatte!
Im Alltag der grösste Vorteil der wirklich und effektiv zãhlt.
Das Gewicht ist auch kein Nachteil, in manchen Situationen sogar von Vorteil, nach ein paar Tagen hat man sich daran gewöhnt und will es nicht mehr missen.
Klar fehlt mir die Wãrmebildkamera Funktion, aber Unihertz arbeitet sicherlich schon daran.
Und zukünftig wird auch ein iPhone 18 oder Samsung S 28 Ultra im Alltag, dem Tank das Wasser nicht reichen können.

Great small phone

Great small phone with good battery life and dual sim

Amazing mobile

That's a amazing mobile all I need to work and to talk,5 ⭐

perfect for me!

ive been using this as my daily driver for a few months now and im personally in love with it! there are a few things i would nitpick about, but they're all about apps not functioning correctly, not the phone itself. i never expected certain apps to work perfectly anyway, due to the nature of this phone. the qwerty keyboard is entirely worth all these little flaws to me, anyway! i love how convenient and fun the keyboard makes this phone, it feels so nice to type with it! the customization options for it are super awesome to me too.. i won't make this review too terribly long so i'll leave this here haha, i definitely recommend it if you want a qwerty phone that helps demotivate your brain from being on the phone all the time while out on public! it's certainly been useful for me as someone who'd rather enjoy the moment :)

Very Good

I would love to see another option with a speaker instead of the big flashlight and reverse charging would also be cool to have
