  • Disappointed, reboots often, low battery level

    I cannot use the installed tools as the internal sensors are inaccurate, arc/sparks when connecting to USB, too many buttons, while handling phone, camera protrudes at rear and cannot touch the screen without rocking the phone when laid flat on table, as a phablet, battery level drops quick, as rear speaker is a hole And magnetic, dirt is filling it up, also rust dust. It freezes while playing candy crush

  • Good value for your money...do not expect a 1000euro phone

    t's my 2 one. Works great... fast, no junk in Android 10... just install the apps YOU want. Using it 12 days now... for that money the phone does everything i want good: GPS, Waze, internet,... sound can better but it is loud enough and with ears verry good? Photographs are good for me... maybe not the same quality then a GSM off more as 500eu but look at then....

  • It's not perfect, but the Bison works well for me and presents great value in terms on bang for your buck.

    I took a chance and bought the UMIDigi Bison (I had bought a Power 3 and its connectivity was so bad I couldn't use it) and I have to say my faith in UMIDigi has been restored. For the price point, this phone has a lot going for it. I know some people are saying its no so good, but I have experienced no problems.

  • Bulky, Bad Cameras, Bad Customer Service, Better off buying something else

    I have had this phone for about 24 hours now and I am already fed up with it. The calls keep dropping. The camera is touted to be a Sony sensor 48MP set up, however, the quality of images even in bright daylight is at best what my 8MP camera on 5 year old phone would get. The unit is big and the markings and buttons actually feel sharp on hands. The fingerprint sensor is a pain. The loudspeaker is positioned in the back, so if you have the phone on a table or bed you won't be able to listen to anything. Other little things that irk me are - Can't find how to enable showing network speed in the notification bar; something I had been able to do since the first Android phone I bought in 2012, lack of native call recorder, can't seem to assign keys for speed dial, lack of native dual app support. But the worst is lack of customer support. Umidigi has none.

    Positives
    • Dedicated programmable buttons
    • Lack of bloatware, sans one app that can be uninst
    • Decent battery life
    • Fast enough charger.
    Negatives
    • BAD Camera
    • Sharp edges/texture of buttons
    • Poor fingerprint sensor

  • Overall the phone is good. If you don't mind the main speaker.

    II currently have this phone for a few days. The main speaker of this phone is problematic; the speaker of this phone sometimes produces sounds that are broken and went back to normal if you meddle with it by doing a quick reboot or accessing google assistant. The speaker of this phone is not that loud and refine. Despite having a terrible speaker, the phone overall is good to have if you don't mind the sound. Just wear headphones or have a Bluetooth speaker to compensate for the terrible sound.

    A beautiful, powerful and resistant mobile

    The quality of the mobile is noticeable, the materials with which it is made feel robust and resistant, the screen is also quite resistant, completely submersible in water. The horn sounds very loud, I never had problems with it, in the same way the horn for calls very well. The fingerprint sensor is placed to detect the middle finger of the right hand, it is just a matter of getting used to it and it detects it immediately as soon as the mobile is taken naturally. Super fast and fluid in its normal execution and running applications. The photographs with any of the cameras look very good, both selfie and rear camera. I have no complaints about this phone, definitely for $ 3,000 it is more than enough in functions and specs, 128gb of internal, 6gb of ram, good processor, good camera, resistant, waterproof, I can't ask for more. The connectivity is excellent. I haven't had any signal problems.

    Terrible phone.

    Robust, withstands shocks and water, but its speaker is simply inaudible (even with the update), its phone call horn is also very bad (you have to be in a very quiet place to be able to hear something), its additional buttons are very sensitive, they are easily pressed which causes the battery to drain because applications that you do not need are activated. Your chip tray is too guanga, which causes internal failure as they easily move. I don't have the option to configure dualapps. If what you want is a powerful mini tablet without sound or for calls, this is your thing, if not, don't waste your time or money

    I expected more from the battery.

    Greetings, mine arrived this week, my previous one is a Moto Z Play, comparing, I liked the Umidigi screen and the sound is pleasant. What is taking the shine off is the battery, at 06:30 it was 100%, now, 17:25 is 50%, I expected more. I don't use it for games, I don't have social networks, whatsapp is not that used. And the battery is 5000 mah! The Moto Z, even old, lasts a day and a half.

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
