    Pretty sure the official UMI site is http://www.91umi.com but either way, this phone really sparks my interest as a decent, lightweight, smaller-sized android phone to carry easily and the first UMI phone to really catch my eye since owning the Cross 6.4″ which I loved. Go UMI.

    You are all witnessing a massive media attack , including this article. Manufacturer tries to create artificial scarcity to make the phone look desirable and hard to get a-la OnePlus. These articles including last week “exclusive” interview with CEO bring nothing to readers.

    Strange how the counter said 330 remaining many hours after the sale started. I kept checking back during the day as I was considering buying one.
