    does it support OTG …????

      OTG? Not sure..
      But I’ve seen some complains on forums about UMI’s charger.
      People say that sometimes it doesn’t charge the phone at all.
      I believe manufacturers should include at least a second battery and some a nice PU-bumper (not like that strange looking black/white rubber bumpers on antelife website) to make it more attractive, with the present or lower price. And if possible, a bit larger charger.

    • July 6, 2013

    More the question: Do they have stock? Most places have run out of stock and taking ages to reorder

    I’m interested in this phone, but all of the websites have conflicting specs.
    The official UMI website (I think it’s official?…) says the WCDMA frequencies are 900/2100MHz, but a lot of other websites say it’s 850/2100, which is actually the frequencies I need… So I am torn.

    Hi Andi
    Am afraid even the other websites are selling the same phone at around 240-245 $ only..So the antelife discount is not much of use

  6. July 5, 2013

    i being trying to around all website but always is the 7 to 10 days , they dont have it in stock, i being trying to get it in many places but or they comfirm they got it in stock or i wont order and wait 4 months.
    i got friend in china try to tracking this device in any shop and they got the same answer in a few weeks but you can order it now, bo***cks.
    and sorry i try to order in the past with antelife once they go your money better be when you receive the phone that is in good working order, otherwise rarely you will see your money back.
    if chinese manufacturer will improve on the shipping another thing will be here.
    if someone decide buy it from antelife please leave your comment.
    i’m sorry but i found it frustating get a chinese phone for all the issues than you need to becareful.

      I recently purchased a THL W8 from antelife, which I picked as someone said they had traded with them and it was OK. This was with a promise to ship in 24 hours and DHL delivery to Denmark which would take 3 – 7 business days. They took a few days to ship, but still the phone got to me 6 days after ordering and was completely as expected, so I’d buy from them again if the price is right.

      China goods do not come with decent chargers. Get a good micro-USB charger and reuse when changing your phone.

    i don’t know you guys but if you wanna buy the umi x2 turbo i guess everybody wants the 2gb ram 32gb 1.5ghz
    , the one they offer is the 1gb ram 16gb rom.

    • July 7, 2013

      what you prefer 5′ or 4’5 inches screen?
      1g ram or 2 ?
      support up to 64 or 32gb sd card?
      1.2ghz or 1.5ghz?
      4 gb or 32gb rom?

      for me there is no option i will pick the umi x2 turbo for sure, now the problem if you can get it…

        But, this discount is to Umi x2 Turbo 1gb RAM and not to 2gb RAM and 32gb rom.

    Hi Andi,

    can you tell me please if you know something about Voto X2 ?

    1948dael, chinapadmall and smartphoneforcheap claim it is a OEM version of UMI x2.
    is it true or it is a Umi rejected by quality test ?

    • July 7, 2013

      I’ve seen it but don’t know if it really is an OEM X2
