We received word today that the UMi Zero has received a significant price cut, from the original RRP of $299.99 to not just $199.99!
At almost $300 the UMi Zero was a hard purchase to swallow, but now at the more affordable price of $199.99 the price is actually really very good for the hardware and build the phone offers. The UMi Zero is the latest phone from the company and easily the best made to date.
UMi have gone for an alloy body with the Zero which will accept either dual SIM or a single sim and micro SD card combination. The AMOLED display is a FHD unit with a Gorilla Glass panel, plus there is a 2.0Ghz octal-core processor, 2GB RAM and fast charging! Not a bad spec.
We have had one in the office for a few days, as has GizChina.de (full reviews on the way), but so far we have ran in to a few complications and oddities. The Zero which our sister site is testing is unstable, and the camera on our review model is an F2.2 aperture and not the advertised F1.8!
UMi Zero unboxing and hands on
Something else we wonder is how do those fans who bought the Zero at full price now feel that they have basically lost $100?Source ]
