    I have stopped bothering myself with the Umi X2 since I realized that its not shipping with the 2.0GHz octacore MT6592 anymore.

    Is there any (chinese) reviews about this phone? (I can’t find them yet on the Internet)

    I would really like to know how the quality is of the pictures of the camera (front and back).

    In the spec sheet you also can find the X3LTE with dual SIM, 2.0GHz MTK6895 (with PowerVR Gen 6 graphics), FDD+TD-LTE and 3500~3650 mAh battery! Superb, but I can’t find any release date!

    Forgive the ignorance, but what band am I in need of for this phone to work here in the U.S.? I was going to purchase this model off of Geekbuying as it said 3g, but only 2100Mhz.

    Has this phone any unique/special features?

    It seems to me their selling point is LG screen, large battery and the thinness (though the length and width of this phone is quite large). Also, I am seeing 2 speaker grills, so is there 2 speakers or microphones? Any noice canceling technology (chip) or special sound chip? Any special camera features?

    It is nice to have a 8MP front camera, but the amount of MP does not say much about the quality. Hopefully, more reviews about this phone will be released very soon.

    Seems like it’s already available on geekbuying, is it true?
    And in the specs, it’s seems less thick than in the article, which one is the right specs?
    Thank you in advance, love gizchina 🙂

        I have read the same problems regarding weak WIFI and GPS in the UMI X2. Just wait for the reviews to come out for the Umi X3 before buying it.
