And the winner of the UMi X1 is……

This has been the craziest competition we have had on Gizchina with over 2500 entries! But we have finally chosen a winner and the that person is…..

The UMi x1 is one great Android phone! It features a 1270 x ย 720 4.5 inch resolution display, dual-core MT6577 CPU and 1GB RAM, oh and that screen is protected by AGC (Dragontail) anti-scratch protection (which also happens to be the answer to the question).

But the question on everyone’s lips now is “who has won the UMi X1?” We’ll it was tricky to choose has we had a sudden burst of entries on Thursday, with some of you trying to enter the competition a few hundred times. We’ll I cleared all the duplicates out, ran the numbers through random number generator, not an iPhone casino,ย and came to the number 253!

So number 253 AKAย Tomislav ลฝuro, you are the lucky winner of the UMi X1! (an email is on the way to you now!)

Thanks to the great guy’s at Uredeal who are going to prepare the shipping, for all of you who want to by a Umi X1 or even a JiaYu G3 for that matter you should check them out!


How do we choose the winners?

We’ll it’s a rather slow and boring process, but I’m sure some of you would like to know.

Basically I take the number of entries and place that in a random number generator, so in this case I placed the number 2653 in the generator and got the number 841. I then spent hours choosing 841 random numbers, then from there chosen another and worked my way through again (I really need to think of a better way to do it!)

        Nope its dragontail (AGC tempered glass). ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Congrats to the winner.

          Where did you find that info ? I searches the sh*t out of internet and youtube… nowhere/no one does say what kind of glass it uses, so i ended puting gorilla grass although i knew it wasn’t gorila glass

            I did know that it was not Gorilla Glass, but didn’t know what was the name of the technology used in the Umi X1, so two Google searches would do the job. First: anti-scratch technologies+”gorilla glass competitor”, which gave me the name ACG Glass. Second: “AGC Glass”+”umi x1”, and that confirmed that ACG Tempered Glass (Dragontrail) is the one used in Umi X1 (which happened to be responded in a previous post here in Gizchina, Google says :)). Too bad I didn’t win :p

          Then why did Andi say it was gorilla glass?

          “the screen features a Gorilla glass style anti-scratch coating”

          I was also surprised by the answer to the question, mainly because I have slowly transitioned to getting all of my information through this website. Guess I should be more skeptical of what I read.

          • December 3, 2012

            “Gorilla glass STYLE”

            It’s like saying the Galaxy S3 has an iPhone style touchscreen (only that would anger a lot of people ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    congrats to the winner

    You can use this site:
    Just let it generate a single number between 1 and the number of entries.

  7. Martijn
    December 3, 2012 should be good enough for generating a random number.

    According to this: page it is pretty random for sure ๐Ÿ™‚

    “(I really need to think of a better way to do it!)”

    Simple. Assign a number to each entry (1 for the first, 999 for the 999th entry). Let the random number gen pick a number between 1 and the highest number …aaaaand its done, the winner is decided ๐Ÿ™‚
