|UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 8:56pm On Apr 01, 2017|
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 .......

My Umidigi One | One Pro review is up
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 9:55pm On Apr 01, 2017|
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.......

I don't like carrying bad news but someone is using the umi Z here. It's a total waste of money. Just less than a month the person already ordered for leeco le max 2. The bugs are just too much, I hope this Z pro is better sha

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.....

From YouTube reviews + press releases + user review forums, I think I did.......
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 7:53am On Apr 02, 2017|
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.
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 8:33am On Apr 02, 2017|
I would surely post my personal user review regularly. I also await delivery.......

Was ordered through an official UMIDIGI supplier via ebay UK.
Total cost - N90,300
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Baroba(m): 10:49am On Apr 02, 2017|
Flossy Carter killed the review on this phone, as great as the phone is, I think he might have been paid by Umi..
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by duwdu: 1:12pm On Apr 02, 2017|
Good thinking - and good eyes, @Lexusgs430.
All the best with your purchase, and looking forward here to your review/user experience as well.
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by duwdu: 1:20pm On Apr 02, 2017|
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.
(The site provides links to known, reputable online merchants at that price, so the offer is most probably genuine.)
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 2:09pm On Apr 02, 2017|
I hope I don't enjoy the device too much, and forget to post my personal review.
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 2:14pm On Apr 02, 2017|
Flossy made me start looking into this device. And the device is a GO..............
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?
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by willian10: 2:19pm On Apr 02, 2017|
That name discouraged me
I wan buy ham one time like this Umi Max/Umi Super
I later settled for Xiaomi redmi note 3 pro
@op why don't u consider using Xiaomi
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 2:19pm On Apr 02, 2017|
On the manufacturers website, it's $299.00. But loads of sellers have lower prices.
Its a buyers market... .. .. ... Choose the best price and purchase....
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 2:22pm On Apr 02, 2017|
From my personal research and elimination method, UMIDIGI Z PRO was way ahead.
It was a personal opinion........
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 2:30pm On Apr 02, 2017|
The name did not play any part in my final decision, but the specifications and price point.
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Baroba(m): 5:33am On Apr 03, 2017|
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.. . 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.
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 5:43am On Apr 03, 2017|
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......
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 5:45am On Apr 03, 2017|
I even ordered the Z phone case and an umi z pro carbon Fibre blue proximity sensor case. Like floss would say, it's a GO......
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Lexusgs430: 5:49am On Apr 03, 2017|
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.
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by Kondomatic(m): 7:18am On Apr 03, 2017|
princetom1: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.

Been using my side eyes to view this phone for a while now. E be like say person go arrange am last last ni. @OP, you know Flossy puts the "Real" factor in his reviews..
|Re: UMIDIGI DISCUSSION THREAD by princetom1(m): 10:26am On Apr 03, 2017|
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.
