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.
guijose, 13 May 2019Is Umidigi f1 able to install g cam (google camera)? 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.
Gimli, 08 May 2019Mike it's a "feature" of the Mediatek chipset that it tends to get hotter than other chipsets ... moreBought my wife and me are using the umidigi F1 and none of us has notice the phone getting hot at all...
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 I thought nothing can beat that price..... Until two days ago when I look in again on OfferUp I saw another one.. the asking price was $80... was Brand new just missing the box.... 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
Dan, 15 Apr 2019I'm curious: are phones from brands like Hisense, China Mobile and Gome available in Slovakia?... moreNo man just Umidigi.
In our stores we sells around 50 phone brands.
From most quint or unknown is Umidigi, Doogee, Myphone, Coolpad, CPA and thats it

I run a phone shop with 37 stores across slovakia and czech republic.
I am not saying they are bad i just think xiaomi is better in quality for a comparable price.
Dhantos, 21 Jan 2019How? the pocophone is literally covered in bugs. Worst Xiaomi mishap ever... Nonsense. Amazing phone. I was devastated when I broke mine. It stood up against the very best phones out there. I've used the very best phones around. When my friends saw it, they were really stunned at what I paid. Try telling xiaomi that it was a mishap. It has sold like crazy and is still doing so now. It's been a stunning success. You can't say that it is a mishap.
CptPower, 07 Feb 2019Man price and specs are good lets say interesting but xiaomi is a bit better and more branded ... moreHow can you know what you have not tried. I have had the umi plus E, the umidigi Z, the umidigi S and the umidigi Z1 Pro. All really excellent phones. I'm a pretty heavy user and they all held up very well. Many highly trusted people online and on YouTube have given this phone very good reviews. I just ordered this and a pocophone f1. The umidigi F1 from amazon for 183. 5 euros and the pocophone f1 from aliexpress for 281 euros. Two phones of undoubted quality. ( I already owned but broke the pocophone F1 - amazing phone). Half the price of a Huawei p30 pro or Samsung s10. Can't go wrong.

The camera is far from the best out there but I think one does exaggerate a little. They're very good actually but compared to the Google pixel 3 or top end Samsung models and iPhone models, they're a bit off no doubt but I've took them to weddings and such and been very impressed with the results. They're pretty good for the price.
