Umidigi A7 Pro - A Sorry Excuse For A Smartphone by IgiveFreebies: 4:59pm On May 04
Being a hater of Transsion devices (Infinix, Tecno, Itel) due to its numerous problems, I decided to use Xiaomi Redmi 5 plus. My o my! That phone was sweet! Sleek to the hand, great camera and what have you. Mhen! I loved that phone. Due to how good it was, many of my classmates joined the Redmi club. Then my beloved Redmi was stolen where I went to play volleyball.
I wanted to get another Redmi device preferably note 8 or note 9 but I was going through a rough patch so I opted for the Umidigi A7 pro 4/64 with 4500mAH battery. I got it for 41900 on jumia. It was delivered one week later.
On powering the phone it was unnecessarily hot at the top. I had to take out my 64GB memory card to see if it will be better and that helped. So no more using the memory card slot.
Next is the battery problem. I used to use my Redmi 5 plus with 3900mAH for one full day with heavy usage (just browsing majorly and no games) but this Umidigi A7 pro will hardly last 4 hours constant use browsing the net.
Powerbank have now become a major accessory.
I would've condoned the battery issue since I'm always with power bank and my area is not bad with power supply, But the hanging, lagging and freezing of apps arrg! I can't use two apps at once. Just Google chrome and the phone will just freeze. I've forgotten what multitasking feels like
When a call comes in I can't take the call until I miss it because the call app will not open though the phone is ringing.
I thought my own device was defective but I've met a boy using A7s and it's the same story. I'm really disappointed with this crap of a device.
Is there anyone else using this same device? What is your experience?

I ordered it for her in December
Yes the battery isn't that great but hers doesn't hang at all
For the hotness that's very true it's gets hot at the top and I think it's because of the glass back

Don't know what's wrong with yours, been rocking mine from August 2020 and I got no complain so far so...

Aside hotness n that's because I use while charging sometime.

Mine has no such issue, 100 percent battery takes me from 8am going to work till 4 when I return.

I use umidigi A7pro and I have never experienced everything you wrote up there. My phone battery last on average of 7 hours in heavy usage (browsing and playing media).


it never lags or freezes and I multitask with no issues

I've been using the phone for six months and the problems you narrated are strange to me. You probably got a defective phone but I would not advice anybody to buy umidigi because of lack of service centers.
