First post so be gentle!

Black and white appears to be in stock at Banggood. £104.67 using code ME60OFF from below link. Seems to be a good deal for a phone with good reviews.

Really good deal, thanks, might just pick it up

Posted for £139 recently, hit 500+.

thanks op, I just ordered one

Looks like it has band 20 to. I'll give it some heat

good deal, voted hot

heat added

Looks very good only thing I can see that I think is a deal breaker for me is no nfc.

Still voted hot at this price.

does it work on 3 network

Interesting...

Unfortunately android pay doesn't work with any Chinese phone. Having used android pay on my old LG g4 I found it to be more trouble than it's worth. Much easier and faster to get back card out. The other uses for Nfc are even more useless I found.

In the good old days when phones had back covers I had a second card and sanded off the numbers and magnetic strip and it lived in the back of my phone.
People used to look at me gone out paying for goods with my phone when people had only just started using pay swipe cards.

Yeah. Sounds good. I here some just get a flip case with card holder for the Nfc bank card, or slide bank card in phone pouch. You can cut a slot in pouch and secure a second card inside. I struggled with android pay to be honest, I constantly found myself paying with wrong card and knocking phone on terminal.

Good find. Heat added. I have GIGASET home phone. Is this Chinese or German company.

Not sure what you were doing with your android pay, but tapping your phone isn't hardly more trouble than its worth. but thanks for the knowledge that it doesn't work with China phones, I was not aware of that

Hardware looks decent for the money. Shame it's stuck on 5.1.1.

Works with the latest global stable on xiaomi mk5

I'm thinking of getting one of my sons one of these for Christmas (with a view to test driving and replacing my s6 with a Chinese phone next year... Mugs game)
This is all foreign to me. I have no idea where to start with which brands are good, what I need to look out for. He has an ee sim so I know I need to check the band but thats it.
Then my plan was to just get one that gained uber heat!!
Can anyone offer any advice??

Yep this is a great deal, the spec for the money is unreal even for a Chinese phone.

I have heard rumours that Gigaset are stopping making phones so perhaps there won't be a great deal of support going forward but as this is Snapdragon the mod community will probably be all over this.

Unsure whether the 'Snapdragon 810 overheating' issue is still a thing?

Pretty sure they are already out the mobile game, no support from what I've read and nothing at the usual sources in terms of roms, kernels etc.

Looks great until you release there's no upgrade path.

May be able to install Ubuntu Touch on it not sure.

$1.22 to the pound is what they gave me

Still coming up as GBP 104.87 for me but you need to change the default currency to GBP.

I'm looking for a new phone and can't decide on this, the xiaomi pro 3 or umi super.. ahhh
The camera spec on this seems really good and not worried about overheating as I don't use for gaming. On the other hand the umi is newer and likely to get updates and I have had a few Chinese phones before so quite comfortable with flashing Roms... decisions decisions

​The UMI Super is a great phone if you can get for around £130, though camera is only ok, though not bad. It's supposed to be getting an upgrade to Android 7 before the end of the year. I seem to recall that UMI have released a beta version of Android 7 for the UMI Plus, which is also reasonably priced.

​Thanks, yeah I've seen the umi super for about £140 but still undecided. Not sure if any better deals will turn up on black Friday.

Ah my fault for leaving it in dollars then, oh well it's done now.

Good price for quite a lot of phone but there were a few things which put me off:
- custom ROM support is patchy, you can root it but very tricky process.
- quite big for a 5" phone, approaches the footprint of some 5.5" phones.
- made by a German company who are out of the mobile phone game now, so no future support.
- instead of an earpiece it uses some sort of funky "sound induction" technology to transfer sound waves to your ear, though you can apparently "listen" from any part of the phone's top surface! Could be cool, could be pants.

I'd be interested to hear opinions from anyone who owns one.

30 quid more for a phone with a much worse camera and inferior build because it might get an android update seems backwards to me

​​​Who said anything about inferior build? The UMI Super has very impressive build quality, I've never seen the Gigaset in the flesh so cannot comment on that.

The online video reviews are a bit underwhelming. Sound quality and phone reception seem pretty dire. I'm not a fan of how it looks much either. Decent specs though. Shame.

I did lol, Gigaset is an established reputable company about 10x the size of one plus and its parent company Siemens about 500x. UMI is a bedroom company in comparison. This phone was designed to be a serious alternative to Samsung and LG etc and it's components have serious r&d behind them.

Anyone have theirs sent with a tracking number that works anywhere?

any decent case for it anywhere ?

just ordered one.. great deal.. thanks

Mine arrived today.
