    No this is something which will easily compete with UMI X2, only thing is that we need to see whether AndroidGuruz sells it in India or we need to import it.

      I did not know about “AndroidGuruz” @ India, Good to know about that !
      When and where are they opening up?

      They should bring even better phones (not just MTK MT6589 ) as they are probably plenty.. There are probably sale Meizu, XiaoMi’s, Newman, Oppo phones too.

    add the tempered glass treatment and it will be the winner 🙂

    Hey Andi,
    Regarding the Umi x1 that was released last year, do you have any news about the durability of the phone? does it have any problems or something with it? I would like to know some history about umi handsets.
    Thank You 🙂

    • April 13, 2013

      yes, there were issues with the screens breaking a little to easy and problems with the GPS. Hopefully they have fixed these problems on the S1, X1S and X2

        With gorilla glass 2 the former problem would be solved right? Was a fix for the GPS found, and did UMI provide updates for the phone concerning software updates such as ICS–>JB 4.1 os?
        Thanks again 😀

          regarding the Umi X1: have it myself, I dont think the screen is bad quality, till now it is 100% scratch resistant and survived a few drops as well. Newest software available is 4.1.2 as far as I know.

    seriously invest and create a screen which works with… a fruit? senseless. I see the point on use it with gloves…but with a fuckin wire?

  8. April 13, 2013

    that screen must be resistive not capacitive

    • April 13, 2013

      It’s capacitive dude, like most phones nowadays.

      It does clearly say:
      “This is the pre-order we will ship before May 5-15
      If you can wait, we will ensure that you are the first to get G4 users”
