UMi started an interesting giveaway allowing fans to win codes with various discounts for the UMi Hammer S smartphone. The event now though has been canceled to give everyone a lower price.
The Hammer S treasure hunt was designed so that fans could receive a code then spin the wheel and hopefully get lucky to win a discount code to buy the Hammer S phone. Out of 54,812 entries 4412 people managed to get a discount of $20, 60 fans got a $50 reduction and 20 lucky fans cut the cost of the smartphone by $100.
Although a great number of people took part in the event, many UMi fans felt that the chances of winning a code were too great and UMi received a number of criticism about the event.

This means that our UMi Hammer code giveaway is now for a $20 code off $129.99, making the final price only $109.99.[ UMi ]
It was $100 or bust for me.
To me, this is a clear reaction to Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 2.
I pity those Chinese phones manufacturers…
lol not really, this is just what they deserve for saturating the market with the shi**y MT6753
Where can I buy this smartphone?
$130 seems like a pretty nice price. too bad i can’t get LTE in the US or I would probably buy
oops, didn’t realize it was a quad core 1.0 ghz processor.
