Umi-X2

UMI X2 now available online, offers Full-HD display, Quad-core CPU, 2GB RAM; All for Rs.14000!

If you were too impressed with the specifications of Micromax Canvas HD and the price it is available at, this news will surely blow your mind! A Chinese smartphone-maker UMI has launched it’s flagship smartphone, the UMI X2 in India for Rs.14,000 and if the specifications are anything to go by, this is one smartphone you could have never imagined at such a low price. 

So here it goes, the UMI X2 comes with a 5-inch Full-HD IPS display having a pixel density of  441 pixels per inch. The smartphone is powered by the MediaTek MTK6589 quad-core processor clocking at 1.2GHz, which is the same you would find inside the Micromax Canvas HD, but the UMI X2 pairs the processor with 2GB of RAM and PowerVR SGX544 GPU, unlike the Canvas HD, which comes with just 1GB of RAM. Now that’s more power than you could ever imagine at this price point.

Quick Specifications of UMI X2

  • 5-inch 1080p display
  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM
  • 13MP rear camera with flash, 3MP front camera
  • 32GB internal storage, micro-SD card slot
  • 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS
  • dual-SIM
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (upgradable to Android 4.2)
  • 2,500mAh battery

The UMI X2 runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out-of-the box and the company promises an update to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean by April 2013. The smartphone comes with 32GB of internal storage along with a micro-SD card slot, to further expand the storage by up to 32GB. The UMI X2 sports dual-SIM card slots and houses a 13 megapixel camera with flash at the back, along with a 3.0 megapixel front-facing camera. Phew! Seems too good to be true, doesn’t it?

The smartphone gets all the standard connectivity options like 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and also packs-in a 2,500mAh battery. The company says that the smartphone would be released between March 15-20. So, if you’re super-impressed (like us) with the on-paper specifications of the device, you can order one for yourself over here.

UMI X2 - Cheating Indian public by Chinese Mobile company I paid online Rs 16,500 on 1st August 2013 to UMI Mobile India for purchase of UMI X2 mobile. The order was confirmed by UMI Mobile India and they said that the mobile phone would be sent within 5 - 7 working days. After waiting for 7 days, I contacted UMI Mobile and asked about the status of dispatch. They informed that it would take a month to deliver the phone. Hence, I cancelled the order requested for refund. Even after a week of request and sending my bank account details, UMI Mobile India is not returning the money. I had sent two reminders asking for refund. One Mr. Hemant called that they are processing the refund. Whenever he spoke to me that he kept on repeating the same but they never transferred the money till date. Today when I sent one more reminder, the mail got bounced. I am very worried that Chinese mobile companies are cheating Indian public.I think that I have lost my money. Such Chinese companies are merrily cheating public. My advice is that we should never buy from fraudulent Chinese companies. It is better to buy from known websites. Further I suggest that Indian Government should not allow fraudulent Chinese companies to operating online. B.V. Sitha Raman

I have placed a pre-order for the UMI x2 handset , but I found the website & delivery process to be quite inconvinient & un reliable, few points which I want to highlight

1) There is no option for cash on delivery
2) I had written to  umi@umimobiles.com on 28th March'13 for further clarifcation and till date I do not even have any form of acknowledgment or response
3) The phone number provided on the website is switched off most of the time
4) Finally when I was able to reachout to someone on the number provide, I spoke to Abhishek and even he did not have any answers wrt if there is a issue with the deliver of the handset post the payments have been made
5)The email address  umi@umimobiles.com  is host thru zepo.in which raises further suspisions

After all this, I am apprehensive about ordering the handset thru their official site. Please let me know your views on this

Where to buy, i have seen one Uni mobile site, price was menioned 14k. But date delivery was not mentioned. Secondaly you need to pay money in advacne. There is no option for COD. Is there any idea when it will reach to retail stores.

Request to Mr Nagpal (igyaan), review the phone and let us know about the performance.

Most Probably the catch is in WiFi. It supports only b/g. It never works with N router and never get connected. Can you verify whether it has only b/g support or it has 'n' support also?

None of Indian smartphone brands including Micromax, Karbonn, Lava, Videocon, Onida, etc manufacture their products on their own, they source their smartphones either in fully assembled state or source individual parts from different vendors in China and then assemble in India with their final Brand name.

 

Don't get fooled by high budget advertisements on print , online and TV  media by large Indian marketing companies like Micromax, Karbonn, etc

 

Outside India, no one has ever heard of brands like Micromax, Lava, Karbonn, etc but Chinese brands like UMI, XIAOMI,OPPO, JIAYU, THL, ZTE, HUAWEI , NEWMAN are household names in  Europe , Australia,Russia, Brazil and North America.

 

I strongly recommed UMI X2 and the soon to be launched  JIAYU G4

 

Don't get carried away by million dollars advertisements , be smart !!!!!
