UMi eMax now available with 20% discount on Amazon


umi emax amazon

While it is getting more and more simple to buy a Chinese phone, it is nice to see manufacturers teaming up with brand name sellers just as UMi have done with Amazon.

UMi seem to be going from strength to strength with plenty of new phones already on sale, updates on the way and a couple of exciting devices in the pipeline. Not happy with just making products, UMi have also built a cool PC suite for updating and backing up your phone, and also have an active community online.

The next step to improve is the distribution and sales of their phones for international customers a step UMi are making by offering their eMax on Amazon to select European countries.

Announced over on their Facebook page UMi have posted links to sales pages of the eMax in the UK, Italy, Germany, France and Spain. U.S customers aren’t left out either with the phone open to order on that side of the pond too (but check network compatibility first).

To celebrate UMi have are also offering a 20% discount on Amazon orders using the coupon code MGC9S8QY. For more details head over to the UMi Facebook page for the links.

    I just visited their Facebook page, and there are unbelievable amount of English and punctuation mistakes.

    How it is even possible to run a official company page like this ?

      A lot of Chinese companies that sell overseas have this problem. They rely on a Chinese employee who somehow finished an English degree to do the translation. This gives you an idea of what kind of service they provide.

    On Amazon they list Emax as supporting 4G: FDD-LTE 800/1800/2600 MHz while on their official website they list FDD 1800/2100/2600. Who to believe?

    If I’d have to choose between Umi Zero / Hammer / eMax / Iron I would probably choose eMax. From the reviews I saw on the net, it seems to have the most robust camera. Anyway none of Umi phones are really camera-centric, but eMax seems to be capable of decent photos.

    Update on Amazon cancelling order:

    Andi from Gizchina has informed the people at Umi and said: “They will speak to Amazon to see what the issue is, but it sounds like a problem with DHL (or whatever courier they are using) who refuses to ship products with a built-in battery.”

    If, and when I receive more info, I will post on it…..
