All good until I saw Gearbest...ugh
Looks a nice phone
gear-not-best.
I've got a Chinese phone myself, but not for 1 second would I believe specs these these cheap brands list. every time they announce their next model they claim it's got this n that, then 4+ months later when it's actually available it gets tested and found not to have a Sony camera, a huge battery etc etc. for 90 quid this will probably be half decent, just don't expect too much. big players like xaomi and oppo you can believe, but not umi, don't be surprised if it takes poor pics or overheats or sensors play up. and of course the warranty worn these sellers is near worthless so accept you're talking a gamble, my elephone has lasted nearly 6 months, the screen touch is failing now so I have to get a new phone but it only cost me 70 quid so not bad.

There's more than a grain truth in what you say but these days there are many authoratitive reviewers on the net providing buyers with the info to make informed buying decisions. Essential when considering a device from a lesser known chinese brand. In my view the advance of insanely cheap, competent Chinese phones will be relentless. Just a matter of time before the Chinese improve their distribution channels and customer support, then watch them go. Heat for the deal BTW.
My o/h & I have both had the Umi eMAX for 11 months now and love it. Umi produces a great phone for the money

Was looking at the umi emax but comments about poor camera put me off. What do you as a owner think of the camera?
good deal supposedly decent phone a friend of mine purchased one recently and reckons its good. It did take three weeks to come though and the camera is not great (according to reviews) and its quite heavy but a 4000mah battery!!
Got the UMI Iron, had a few niggles when I first got it but overlooked them as the phone overall is great.

Camera is shocking UNLESS you get 3rd party app and be very still when taking shots then it works great.

There used to be a little pop between tracks but the sound is so much better than my old MOTO G.Think this may have been solved with latest ROM as haven't noticed it for a while.

I would be all over this if I needed to replace my UMI Iron

I had an umi zero. The thing looks nice, had a beautiful screen, decent camera and performance was good.

Unfortunately it was crippled by its battery. It would always switch off at 40% and you only got about 1 hour of screen time. After a month that became half an hour. It was impossible to use it because of that.

All owners seemed to have the same problem. Umi lied about the battery capacity and they had used a battery that was proven to be dangerous and crap.

I wouldn't trust them again. I stick to xiaomi and meizu now. Both are respected brands and I've had no issues.
These 5.5" phablets seem mighty popular in China.
Anyone know if you can do the sd card trick gluing it to a sim on this.Like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
I tried Chinese phones last year and never again. Chances are that the final product will go through several delays before turning out to be even worse than the English used on those promotional images.

"Criterion curve of the nature promotes miraculous curve and hand feel" - what does that even mean?

Yep. I want 5" or less plus dual SIM and microSD card. This phone, and many others fail on both counts. Moto G Gen 2 does this but I am struggling to find any other decent phone to replace it
I got a umi Rome a few months back and had nothing but lies from the company they said it had a 10 point multi touch display when it only had 2 and a AMOLED screen buy it was clearly LCD. There was also few other discrepancy also. It has issues after a few months on terms of the screen not turning on when you hit the power button but the phone was on. No updates I had to manually install updates even tho it said it did ota updates. The issue with the screen was resolved after i did a update but a whole new set of issues came in the form of the compass not working and when you switch if the phone it wouldn't turn off and freeze. You had to take the battery out and it would goes through a restart would take ages due to android optimisation thing kicked in every time I had to do a restart like this.

I agree, I have a Wileyfox swift but its going back after multiple crashes. Shame as it's a great phone for the £. If you come across any please let me know, gutted the Moto G 3rd isn't dual sim as I loved my 2nd gen.

I believe that 40% battery thing was the fault of the MediaTek chipset. Supposedly they are terrible at monitoring battery levels so the 40% percent probably wasn't an accurate representation.

Tbh, my time with them convinced myself that they are just terrible in general but that's just my IMHO. I should just have just not bothered and stuck with snapdragon as that's what I am using again now any (Honor 5x).

I have one of these (managed to get it for 89 quid a while back with an ebay voucher). It works really well with basically vanilla marshmallow. The camera is pretty good in decent light, but has red banding in low light, there is an update to fix the problem, but my update wont install (it won't reboot into recovery mode). I'm hoping another OTA update with fix the problem, or I'll try to update it manually, but it is a quick phone that has worked well for me. The battery life is great, I usually have 30% left after a day of quite a lot of use.
what's the likelyhood of this being nabbed for customs charges ? (sent with snailmail)
The battery on my UMI Rome has numerous faults including unresponsive touchscreen and the battery life is pathetic, the firmware updates have not solved the problems with the phone but caused new ones. Also UMI are known for lying about the specs of their phones. Buyer beware.

I've never been stung for charges via the slow option, it's always happened whilst using DHL though.

I actually wrote to some companies in those regions once, asking them if they wanted to me to edit the English for them. Didn't get a single response.

cheers - did they declare the correct value on yours ? ( I think if they put something silly like £20 its asking to be screened)
Bought one of these from gearbest last month. Do not choose DHL shipping, you'll get stung for £21 (Vat + DHL charges which they don't tell you about)

As for the phone it's self. I would avoid it. Camera is not up to spec, blurry photos etc. The phone I received wouldn't read a sim card and the OS crashed repeatedly.

Customer service is a bit of a nightmare, all they want to do it offer you a small refund to keep the item. Eventually had to send it back, currently awaiting it being delivery.

All in all lost about £50 from postage/fees. I'd avoid this phone, really disappointing as I was impressed with the UMI Iron (despite the camera issues on this as well).

There's reviews on Banggood though I don't know if they filter reviews (?) - you'd think someone would mention the camera quality banggood.com/UMI…ise
