        Hi, cleared cookies, but still unable to arrive to questions. Never mind, when its not meant to be, then its not meant to be. ThankQ anyway.

  • What a good news !
    This is the only phone I am pretty sure to work on 900MHz/2100MHz 3G baseband.

    This information does not seem to be very important for you. Besides, it’s a hard one to get. But I try to get the info when I can.

    Thank you for this site. I am on it like every morning and even the evening.

  • wow this is a nice phone to be given away for Christmas thanks Andi ang gizchina count me in… hope to win this one and hands on this AWESOME UNI X1

  • Andrea

    Hi Andi,
    I’ve a curiosity question: how do you choose the winner?

    • Once all the entries are in they are placed in an excel starting from the first who entered to the last. then I’ll split the groups up by 4 (or more depending on how many people enter) then using a random number generate to slowly whittle the numbers down until I have a winner.

  • Jason

    Didn’t work for me either, deleted cookies too.

  • tino96

    Thanks for the nice video review you also shared. Seems like a nice phone after all.
    Good luck to everyone and I’m keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks for your generosity!

  • Leo


  • Paul

    crossing my fingers second time around. Didn’t win the zopo zp900 hopefully I get to win this one.

  • Rianto

    Thanks Andi

  • Yoav

    All ok here and thanks a lot andi.

  • RolandNL

    OMG lol, I was looking for the answer, but then I looked at the wrong tab (of the Jaiyu G3 unboxing) and then gave that as an answer =’) But then I scrolled and was like ‘OMG I’VE RUINED IT!’, as only then I realised I was on the wrong tab =’) So yeah, I immediately sent another answer with the addition that the previous one was a mistake, I hope you get where I was coming from… I just like to see all reviews on GizChina, and therefore I open a lot of tabs haha 😉

    Good luck everyone!

    • Yep don’t worry I have your right answer 🙂

  • Prasanna

    hi Andi
    I am from Nepal. Can i participant on this?

  • Frans

    Nice giveaway dude 😉 just found out this website today (was searching for the jiayu g3 but i might wait with that because of this giveaway ^_^ )

    Thx for this giveaway dude.

    hopefully my answer was good (havent put the country of the glass in the answer).

    • Shhhh you are giving to much away 😉

  • Kelzen

    RIGHT ANSWER IS “NONE”, or at least some CRAP, because I have crack on the displey already! And it was no “crash test”, just a little fall! I’m totally disappointed!

    • Frans

      No glass is unbreakable, shit happens dude sorry to hear it.

    • Vincent

      My UMI X1 cracked in my jeans pocket when I sat down. No fall!

      It’s not gorilla glass!!!!

      • Frances

        did you ever find a replacement screen?

  • AG

    Hi Andy,

    Will you be giving away something on Christmas too ? 🙂

    And I have a suggestion, next time please let us “compete” 🙂 I mean like designing a logo for gizchina, or a mascot or a punchline may be 🙂 Lucky draws makes us think a lot about results 🙂 If it were a competition then you will have a hard time choosing and we can relax 😛 win win for both 🙂

    • Yep I hope to be able to have a give away for Christmas too. Great ideas! I’ll have a think about what we can do 🙂

      • RolandNL

        I suck at designing tho, and I guess that others have a harder time thinking of punch lines, so maybe just suggesting an ‘idea’ to make GizChina better would be nice. This could then also be a logo, mascot or whatever, but also stuff you wouldn’t be thinking about yourself which can give you a new perspective on your website!

      • Brianna

        I think if you had any design contest, I’d be super happy. (You should do it just for fun, even)

        • Ok, let me secure a good prize and we’ll run one 🙂

          • Brianna

            Well, I /could/ use a tablet. (hint hint lol)
            But, great! 😀

  • Benjamin

    What a phone. I wonder how it would look this side of the sahara. Love the site keep on giving us more reviews.

  • Niko

    hi Andi,

    when will you write the complete review of umi x1, and btw umi x1 today release 1st 4.1 rom (still beta) also MIUI already on their closed beta on umi x1 rom (read from 91umi bbs)

  • Amit

    Is there a way to differentiate the knock off from original ones. I was looking for this phone in aliexpress today and found that most of the x1 have bonus batteries and ‘powered by bonus’ written on the back cover. Are they originals? Do you think Kalzen’s screen cracked easily because he might have got a x1 knock off ?

  • Mochiza

    Hope I’ll win this! I’ve been using a really bad phone since 5 years ago. *finger crossed*

  • Kyan

    Woohoo, only 3 days left till the winner announcement 🙂

  • Viktor

    • Kyan

      Oh ha ha 🙂

  • Kyan

    Hmm… Maybe Andi is taking long as he doesn’t want to part from his beloved UMI X1.

    We understand Andi 🙂

    • Ha ha I do love it 🙂

      Nope it’s been a busy weekend and we had about 1000 extra entries on Friday (lot of duplicate entries though 😉 ) So having to sort through them carefully so everyone has an equal chance of winning.
      Hopefully I’ll announce the winner today 🙂

      • Airyl

        ARGH, the suspense is killing me!
