I use the Mi5. It is a beauty.

I'm sure I've changed at least 7 phones since 2014.

Just read some reviews on the Mi5. I love my expandable memory slot.... . It's a good device also (they all look similar). But umi z pro got my heart at the moment..... .

It's still dead. Hopefully seller would profer a solution and offer alternative or refund.
Regardless of this glitch, the 20 minutes or so I spent with the device. I want it to continue for at least a year. A replacement device, is what I want. The device feels and looks like a $800 device.

Sorry, this things happen.. could be one that missed a proper QC check.. Thank God you bought from eBay, your money is safe..

Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 1:22am On Apr 06
Just spent the past hour reading through UMIDIZI community forum. It seems the Umi brand is notorious for failing devices, rather than fix issues, they simply launch another product.
I hate to say this, but my love for this Umi z pro is gradually fading.
Might have to settle for the Oneplus 3T or await the Oneplus 5.......
Lets see the resolution umi offers.........

A working replacement is what I want or refund. The phone is still dead.
Ok, keep us abreast of the situation. I think it must be a bug from umi, they need to rework their software.

Umi don orubebe you, now jega d seller grin. On a serious note, don't buy anything from brands like umi, elephone et all more then 150 USD. Vintino, how are u enjoying ur umi? They always can pull off d hardware but they aren't cut out for the software, even if u give them 2 years to work. Their best staff works in d advert department. Their engineer are sorry assesd

The MSRP is $299. They really pulled the hardware off. It's really a looker and fun to hold, shame about the software .... .. .

The way you feel with your Mi5, is the way I felt with the umi z pro (albeit only for 20 minutes).
So your think apart from my dead umi z pro, like for like comparison. You think the Mi5 is better than the umi z pro?

Sure it is.

A device with a Snapdragon 820 SoC is definitely better than one with Mediatek x27 chipset.

Other extras on the Mi5 you won't find on the umidi Z pro include NFC and IR blaster.

I'm sure there are others I might not remember right now.

Then check out a smartphone survey done by Antutu. While Mi5 showed up on No.11. Umidi Z pro ain't​ anywhere close.

Just saying.

I never use NFC, IR blaster I use occasionally for AC/TV controls..........

I still love the UMIDIZI Z PRO, regardless. Hopefully umioffice would do the needful .....

I am also fairly heavy user. If the umi serves me just one year, it would be a good result....... Alternatively, might just wait for the OnePlus 5...

Have you try to reset the phone by pressing power and volume key? Do that and let see if it will come on. Eventually it comes on, try to install whatsapp again. But do not void any warranty while doing so. I await a good news from you.

Were you able to unbrick it? If yes, kindly give us the procedure, it might be of help to people.
Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 11:39am On Apr 06
Logged my complain on the umi community blog. Below is a reply from another purchaser -:

Same here. Got the phone yesterday with 19% charge. I charged it until it was 85% and then started setting up my accounts and apps. During this it rebooted once. When it reached around 65% charge it just went dead. No warning, no lights, nu stutter. Just gone!

Charged it all night and still charging now (been 12 hours on charger now) but nothing happens.. just a faint red led light going on and off.

Tried hard reset, no response. Connecting to pc, no response.
