We do not have this booster in our testing line up, and Uniden has ignored our requests for a review unit.
But - we have been able to confirm that Uniden UM50 is actually a rebranded but otherwise identical version of the HiBoost Travel 4G, which we have reviewed.
Our rating here is based on our analysis of the HiBoost.

Cellular boosters can be quite useful for boosting the signal to a smartphone to get a more solid phone call. But when it comes to enhancing cellular data performance, things get more complicated.
Because of a technology called MIMO (multiple in multiple out) that is essential to LTE and 5G data, often times the internal antennas on a smartphone or hotspot don't benefit from an amplified signal. Boosters also only cover a handful of the frequency bands the carries use for data.
But a booster can play a role in a mobile internet arsenal - as they excel during times when you are really far from a tower, or where upload speeds are important (such as video broadcasting).
