At first i was hesitating to buy the phone, i wanted an oppo but this phone have a great SOC, RAM, ROM, decent camera, fast charging, for only 200$.
Its working fine, 24h oh usage, 10h heavy usage, with normal usage i think 2days.
That 5150 is a beast, and i only knew about f1 play after i bought mine, so if you find an f1 play buy it, if not even this one is rocking.
It's worth its value, don't forget that its a 200$ phone.

But A2 and A2 lite have clean pure android no bloatware thats a win win for me.
CptPower, 29 May 2019A2 lte or A2 by xiaomi just for example, Those models don't have pie with no bloatware, they have no sd card slot, they don't have NFC, they don't have as big a battery. In fact, the mi A2; has a 3000mah which is is less than 3/5 of the capacity of the umidigi F1. The F1 has a 6.3" screen with smaller bezels and the mi A2 is only 5.99". The Helio P60 has shown that it's on a par with the sd660 in extensive testing. The umidigi has a headphone jack and that is a big deal for most people. The mi A2 doesn't. I think that the umidigi F1 is a much better package. Their scores on antutu are identical 134,000. Umidigi F1 wins hands down in features and price.

My friend in SE Asia has a Poco and it works great there. It was developed for the Indian market so it's frequencies tend toward that market. Compare the Umidigi F1 frequencies against the Poco F1 frequencies.
CptPower, 13 Apr 2019Man yes you can have good experience we have this brand for sale here in Slovakia thats why i ... morePlease show me a Xioami with similar specs at a comparable price. Battery? Number of radio frequencies? Quick charge? Ram? Screen size? Pie with no bloatware? The only thing with similar specs at the time I purchased my F1 was the Mi8 and it was more than double the price. I researched.
Works great so far. Set up of Android 9 stock is a little confusing. Unlike US versions, it does not have emergency alerts ( a big plus from my perspective) but I wasted an hour trying to figure out how to disable emergency alerts. Also US pre-paid MVNO like Tracfone would not take this double slot SIM on Verizon network ( a restriction from Verizon, I guess) but they took my phone on T-mobile that it as good or might be even better inside buildings in my area. I just started today so cannot comment on other features. Did not notice any issues with heating yet.

Does gcam improve the camera on Umidigi f... moreI've had mine for a week now and I've taken a few pictures and I can't see anything wrong with the camera. Colors are nice and accurate and pics turned out clear. Maybe I just got a hidden gem but I'm loving this phone. It replaced my Samsung note 9. The only real thing I miss is bixby but I'm using Google Assistant now which is comparable.

TB, 15 May 2019Very nice smartphone with a very nice price.Believe it or not I got two of these F1 that somebody was selling through OfferUp I got one of them around you with the box sealedAt the amazing price?.....$125 each....

And because of the missing box the seller drop the price to just $60..... I'm even at $200 this is an amazing phone

Mike, 22 Apr 2019Okay... Guys I just got my Umidigi F1 phone on 20th April 2019 and it was as I expected though... moreA phone getting hot is just half the equation. You should also consider if the phone is significantly lagging or dropping frames on normal usage, if not then there's no problem it being hot, that just means that the aluminum body is doing a pretty good thing on distributing and dissipating heat around the aluminum body because your phone is passively cooled and uses its whole body as it own heat-sink.
Mike, 22 Apr 2019Okay... Guys I just got my Umidigi F1 phone on 20th April 2019 and it was as I expected though... moreMike it's a "feature" of the Mediatek chipset that it tends to get hotter than other chipsets under load. It's generally not a big problem but if it makes the phone uncomfortable for you to use you'd be better off with a phone that has a Snapdragon chipset.
Okay... Guys I just got my Umidigi F1 phone on 20th April 2019 and it was as I expected though still testing it. The only thing I observed so far is the phone getting a little hot during usage is this normal or do I need to request another device?
Please your opinion is needed as soon as possible as I have a short window period for returns.
Battery wors 2 Days for me - Cam is very nice, Fingerprint dont works every time, but face-Unlock works fine. I love it and the price is also very awesome
