You've gotta be off your melon to pay 150 quid for a Chinese phone that's on pre order! This isn't a reputable brand and it won't be tried and tested so you can almost guarantee faults and problems, you also won't get it for weeks or months. Banggood must laugh their heads off every time they sell these pre orders with some made up availability date while this little company with no quality control hurries it's production line to fill boxes with cheap components because there are people stupid enough to buy them because they have 4gb ram so they must be good!.. Rant over lol

​Do you have any first hand experience that justifies your opinion?

I was very impressed with the UMI Rome X, and have bought 2 other low cost phones from Banggood for friends, and I am very impressed.

It is a bit risky, as returns will be a pain if anything goes wrong due to distance, but Banggood have great customer service, and quality control seems to be good (I've had no issues with cheaper phones, and don't expect it'd be any worse with more expensive ones).

You get a lot of phone for your money here, so as long as people are realistic about the risks, it's a very good deal indeed.


Why would I want first hand experience? I'm happy to learn from other people's experience thanks. You see it time and time again,
- people excited about when they will get their hi spec no name phone
- weeks later "anyone got theirs yet?"
- months later software and hardware problems "is there a fix yet?"
- "sent it back it overheats, doesn't charge properly, camera is terrible, screen isn't responsive" etc etc

And those that get by are looking for another phone less than a year later. It's a false economy. It's about brand reputation more then money, the likes of xiaomi, huawei etc are fine, not umi!

UMI is crap. They promise alsorts but never deliver!

Just swatted a fly on the ipad glass whilst reading this. Managed to submit a spam or something else report. oO oops. Sorry mods

£171 for me. Neh

I bought an Umi Super a couple of weeks ago on a whim (had a 10% off voucher for eBay so paid £130), I've had about 10 phones in the last 2 years and am very familiar with the pros and cons of buying 'Chinese' over mainstream brands.

I've no complaints at all about the device. Build quality is great. Battery life fantastic. Sat nav works fine which is usually a problem in 'Chinese' phones.

If I was to have any gripes, it's a little heavy, the fingerprint scanner is slower than my Honor 7, and the camera is not great in low light but fine in natural light.

I'm not 100% sure I'll bother switching back to my Honor 7, mainly for the battery life.

As for this offer, if I do a side by side comparison of specs between Umi Super and Umi Plus I'm not really sure I see enough in the Umi Plus to recommend over the Super, if the Super is £25 or so cheaper...

Jesus that's a lot of phones! For me I think when they're around the 70 quid mark it might be worth a gamble, I paid nearly that for an elephone p7000 because I needed something quick, I think it lasted about 7 months before it started giving me problems. If I'd spent 150 I would have been pretty miffed

I get bored quickly! Have had various Sony, Samsung, Honor, Vodafone, Elephone, Nubia, DooGee and XIAOMI models and of the 'Chinese' manufacturers the Umi has by far the fewest compromises.
