UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 8:56pm On Apr 01
I was thinking of upgrading my Note 3. From the moment I bought my Note 3, I always knew I would use the Note 3 till i got too tired of it or it got tired of me .........

Almost 4 years later, the phone started to hang unnecessarily, getting so hot, camera not functioning well, flash not turning on again. I thought the time had finally arrived for that upgrade.

Looking at the smartphone market - The S8 was about to launch (cannot justify the huge price tag, that samsung would place on the S8 or S8+). I started looking and hunting for flagship killer devices on the market. I went from oneplus 3T, Axon etc etc etc. Watched loads of youtube reviews, read loads of press releases etc etc etc.

Cost of device + specification, would play a big role in my final decision. Then I stumbled on the Umi Z PRO (and i was hooked). For $299.00 (some sellers sell for less), I could get a flagship killer device, with fairly high specification and at a price point I was not willing to exceed.

Placed my order and awaiting delivery...........

NB: Attached are a few features of the UMI Z PRO .......

It looks very sexy, with a touch of iPhone design on some angles.
The dual rear camera + helio X27 + a host of other spec's, makes this a proper flagship killer device.......

Don't even dare compare tecno to this. Do tecno fans even know that their glorified garbage isn't all there is in the smartphone world?

The umi z had bugs, yes. But the Umi Z pro is a completely different device.
Umi even rebranded their company, making a statement of intent and trying to repackage the umi z pro.
They are now called UMIDIGI..........
NB : I watched loads of YouTube reviews, before settling for the Umi Z Pro. The complaint on the UMI Z pro from users, are not of a technical nature, but cosmetic.....

Once the device gets delivered, I would constantly update this thread with personal user reviews (my nano sim is awaiting the umi z pro).
Would be a combination of nano and tf card (not using it for dual sim purposes).

I think this is a good choice if you are looking for a close to stock Android experience as possible.

I have used two Umi phones in the past and didn't have many complaints.

We await your review of the Z pro unit after you have received it.

Good luck.

Just searched for "UMI Z Pro Specifications" and got the following link with the offer at $249.99. Haven't bothered yet to check for the genuineness of the site/seller or any hidden charges, though.

http://www.pdevice.com/product/umi-z-pro-specs

(The site provides links to known, reputable online merchants at that price, so the offer is most probably genuine.)

Andriod Authority also spoke nicely about the UMIDIGI Z PRO
NB: I think even if Flossy got paid, he would still be honest with his reviews. Did all positive reviewers on YouTube and the net also get paid?

On the manufacturers website, it's $299.00. But loads of sellers have lower prices.

From my personal research and elimination method, UMIDIGI Z PRO was way ahead.

The device sure looks good, the way Floss was marketing even the Z case and tempered glass from Umi, he was behaving more like a sales rep.. cheesy. Am sure you got yourself a winner, the X20 on my sister's Xiaomi note 4 is an excellent performer, am expecting big things from the X27.. Looking forward to your review.

I have bought a few items based on Flossy's reviews, and I have not yet been disappointed.
He recommended the bluedio vinyl, I ended up buying two of the bluedio vinyl headphones.
Some things he reviews are way too expensive and not necessarily required, so I just enjoy the reviews.
But all things said, Floss does give honest reviews.....
Cannot wait to get my grubby hands on the umi z pro, and dump my Samsung note 3 in my gadget bin......

It does sure looks good and very sexy, looks like a cross breed between the iPhone parents & droid parents....
And the ability for OTA upgrade to N, is also a plus. I do not think I would be rooting it.

Lols, see reason.

If I should judge iPhone based on my experience with IPhone5s then their phones are useless.

If I should judge Samsung based on my experience with S4 then their phones are total waste of money.

My point is, every phone brand do produce faulty devices at times and I expected you to know that first batches of most New phones are shipped with few bugs that the company corrects with software updates.

That been said, I am an Umi customer, I have been on their Umi Super Euro Edition since it was launched and I have not seen any intolerable defect.

The phones gets better and better after each software upgrade.

Ops... Maybe u need to understand me better. No time to argue. Someone like u will advice someone to buy elephone. Point is, some brands just churn out craps as software time and time again.
