never again a Umidigi phone. They can't even commit to update very recently launched phone, like the F1 from 2019. Not even basic security updates. Umidigi is very close to be named a scam. So disappointed with this costumer-unfriendly firm.
I bought 3 umidigi f2, one for each family member, I pass you my conclusions,
the quad camera is actually a normal camera,
the response speed of the processor (obviously it is a Helio P70) is low,
the screen is clear and of good resolution, the non-existent prioium software,
the side fingerprint reader was a bad decision,
most of the time it doesn't catch the footprint and makes it difficult to get on,
It could be classified as a cell phone with low-end features and reach, promoted as a mid-range,
and with the mid-range price,
The after sales service is more than MALISIMO, the queries do not answer you,
and it is not convenient to order using the aliexpres delivery service,
two of the cell phones took me 3 and a half months to arrive,
and they never answered any questions asking what was happening,
the third cell phone was not sent directly, I got 3 glass protectors,
of 2 dollars, claim the company, and they just don't answer me, and the company ali express,
did not intervene, so I lost the money,
The advice I give to anyone who wants to buy umidigi is to buy another alternative means of communication,
more secure and efficient, as it can be,
drum, smoke signals, or handwritten letter by mail, but for no reason BUY UMIDIGI.
I don't know if I was clear but I try to clarify the point. DO NOT BUY UMIDIGI.
My phone does not ring when " no disturb" is on. If is turned off mobile keeps sounding and vibrating with every notification so is very annoying Any option of just incoming calls sound on and rest of sounds off? Please help
PS My opinion about Umidigi F1 is a heavy phone and camera is not good enough.
ben7337, 30 Oct 2019What sort of battery percentage are you at after 9 hrs screen on time? Is it like 10% or less,... moreThe battery on the F1 lasts longer than any android phone i've ever had. I watch video at least two hours every day (travelling to and from work on the train) and it is still ok after 2 days without re-charging.
Please make a review on the latest Umidigi that they release, the Umidigi Power 3 and Umidigi X

But u should not buy this phone. U don't get updates anymore. NO!!
Still android 9, android 10 update not planned. I won't buy a phone from umidigi anymore.

I wouldn't say "it completely destroyed it" though as we can see f1 "destroyed" a2 in cpu multi core score, right? I also don't care about benchmarks but the reality which is that right now I'm running dozen of apps on the f1, one of which is chrome browser with 70 tabs opened, with no issues or lagging. Also, it is all about compromises, tradeoffs and personal taste like in this example: a2 might be slightly better performer but f1 has superior battery, SD slot, nfc, headphone jack and better screen which for many people including me makes it a better choice.

Is it like 10% or less, or are you at like 30-40% and 9 hrs screen on time? For the specs of the Helio P60 and 5150 mAh battery I'd expect this phone to get 15-16 hrs SoT, so you should still have about 40% after 9 hrs use, but I'm guessing that isn't the case right? Please let me know, as there's so few reviews out there claiming actual screen on time.
umidigi power 3
good battery but dimenssions are too big, especially the weight 228gr
& galaxy m30s with almost same battery 6000mah
Weight: 188 g
at least use helio p65 ( new name chipset )

vkuo00, 14 Oct 2019Im a bit confused. Does the Umidigi F1 work with Verizon? ThanksI'm using it on Verizon right now! I've had the Umidigi F1 on Verizon since February. Keep in mind, you must have an old Verizon phone to "sim swap" with. What I did was activated an old Galaxy S5 that I had on Verizon, then swapped that sim into the F1. Everything works perfectly, including VoLTE and wifi calling.
RAM optimization(multitasking) of umidigi phones is awful
i saw a video about SPEED TEST comparing btw mi a2(sd660) & umidigi f1(helio p60)
in ram optimization(multitasking) section mi a2 completely destroy f1 with helio p60
umidigi better fix this BIG problem
since umidigi use this chipset helio p60 in many phones even in new phones
better to fix it at least in new models!!
