I would never buy a umi branded phone ever again, I had the umi iron when it was first realised but I soon realized after a few week it was poorly made, the screws that hold the phone together all fell out , the charging socket became loose and would not charge, the Android operating system was full of bugs that they never fixed even to this day, it was just any expensive lesson which I have learnt.

This device has full metal body and they are presenting this as flagship device
Been watching this for a while, be interested to read actual owners experience first, particularly the C port for headphones, shame no headphone jack, not all headphones work properly through a c adapter. Specs for the money appear very good. Not sure how long support follows, we had an early Umi phone and support was thin, but as this is a flagship would hope as good as Xiaomi.
Using gearbest for cheap items I can understand but to pay this sort of money to those idiots is sheer madness. Lucky if it lasts 2 months, utter garbage.

As a long term user of both Gearbest and AliExpress, I can 100% vouch for them. I recently bought my Redmi Note 4 off of AliExpress (This is not my first Chinese smartphone btw) and it came in perfect condition and is working beautifully. Moreover AliExpress guarantees you get your item or you get a refund (This has happened on a few occasion's but I always got my money back). On the other hand Gearbest does not guarantee your items however if you pay with PayPal you are covered anyway. I also was a bit skeptical at first about these so called "shady" back alley Chinese sites, but the truth is they are very dependable and so far I have not had one Gearbest item that hasn't arrived ....... Yet.

Regarding the UMIDIGI phone, I've never owned one but I have owned similar cheap Chinese smartphones and heres the basic lowdown. If you are looking for a good phone to work with great software straight out of the box, then this is probably not the phone for you. But if you are willing to get your hands dirty and (most likely) install another ROM on the phone then you will be pleasantly surprised, but most phone users would not want to have to go through all the trouble doing that. If that is the case, buy the Iphone X :P

P.S Xiaomi produces great phones and has great support just FYI

The Umi Iron had a metal body and was also a flagship device but was let down by poor manufacturing and no bug fixes, Umi didn't care and just carried on releasing new phones without fixing the ones they already had out.
Bought the UMI plus a few months ago and never got the promised android 7 update which was suppose to be out in Jan this year. No user support provided what so ever or bug fix updates rolled out. Camera quality poor and battery life starting to become an issue. I can only presume that users who buy this phone will experience the same issues for this low quality manufacturer. USB C cable connection also had issues as only umi cables seemed to fit correctly.
