UMi Super on limited presale for $219.99


UMi has been aggressive with the marketing for the upcoming UMi Super. We’ve seen a few discount coupons, and other info regarding the phone. However, this is probably the lowest the phone has ever been on order for – $219.99.

To remind you of the specs of the UMi Super, it’ll have a MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 processor with 4GB of RAM. Along with that, there’ll be 32GB ROM, a 13 mega-pixel rear camera (samples), a 13 mega-pixel rear camera and a 5 mega-pixel front-facing camera.

A 4000mAh battery keeps the lights on on the device, with a fingerprint sensor fitted on the rear panel.

To avail the Super for $219.99, head over to TomTop.com. There’s more — use coupon UmiSuper10, to get a discount of $11.11/€10.

    Don’t do it!

    I pre-ordered the UMI Touch on 16 February from Tomtop. I still have not received it and it is not clear if or when I will receive it or what the ultimate cost will be.

    First there was a production delay for which UMI apologized (thanks a lot!). The phone has now been held up in customs for one month. It took several requests and one week to get the invoice from Tomtop which customs required. Communication on their part is slow or non-existent. Their only offer for help was an “I’m sorry” (another apology).

    In the meantime UMI continues to discount the phone at prices very similar to the “bargain” that I had and I am pretty sure that in the near future there will be a discount offer even lower than the price I paid. So do not think that the pre-order price of the UMI Super is once in a lifetime and never pre-order a chinese phone.

      I agree: first, tomtop is known for being on the scumbag side, so you should ask paypal a refund if that’s what you payed with (I really hope you did).
      Second: yeah, NEVER pre-order anything at all… There are too many variables that could turn an apparently bargain in a waste of money, from the fishy resellers’ activities to the phone itself, that usually does not live the hype.
      And, as I said before, the “low pre-sale, than the price will get higher” is just a marketing move: 2-4 weeks after the price will drop again to pre-sale original price!
      So, waiting a month is always worth it: you’ll get a price drop and actual reviews to see how the phone really performs

        I agree with your assessment of which side Tomtop is on but, to be fair, I can’t blame them for UMI’s delays and the customs problem is not a basis for a paypal contestation.

        Having said that there are many resellers that will help you with customs and these guys have had an “I don’t give a sh_t” attitude from the beginning.

        So I am just stuck and might have to write off the expenditure although it wasn’t that much.

        A lesson for all who are thinking of pre-ordering the UMI Super.

        one thing i disagree with is “never pre order anything”
        1 mostly in the west pre orders require full payment but else where pre orders require a very very smal percentage so their is less risk involved

        2) every thing has its purpose there are reviewers that get phones as quick as possible because of preorders giving us the privilege of seeing whats wrong with a phone before we even consider it

        3) many pre order products like say games comes with limited edition bonuses or bundles that to some people because they are super fans appreciate

        4) pre orders helps the business it maybe more expensive at times to the consumer but it does support many companies wth that extra profit

        5) you can make money from preorders, you get the first stock then sell the product for profit when the second wave takes a while

    Zenfone 2 – 4GB RAM for $175
    UMI price isn’t competitive.

      would be better if you used something like the qiku N4 for 130 dollars as a better example with zenfones “4gb” ram is really 2gb or less with all that bloatware not to mention how confusing it is to identify which zenfone 2 your talking about

    185g according to devicespecifications.com. For a 5.5″ phone. Wow, that’s heavy. But then again, you do get a 4000mAh battery. I guess it’s a matter of personal preference.

      Same weight as the new axon, which has a smaller battery, but still heavy indeed !

      It’s not heavy at all for a full Metal phone

      • Omer

        Metal is not the real culprit here, it’s the battery. So ‘It’s not heavy at all for a 4000mAh phone’ would have made more sense.

    “TomBottom” is a scam @ss site. I feel so lucky I managed to take my money back through PayPal…

      If you want this phone so badly at $219, maybe try GB. They are a bit slow, but at least they aren’t scammers…

        Why do you add your own referral link and use tinyurl to hide it? If this would be an unbiased recommendation, you wouldn’t use referrals.

    Just heard from the resellers, 40UmiSuper will give you a $40 discount: check here.
