UMI Super second OTA update is live


UMI Super

Seems like the busy bees in UMI are working hard and the second firmware update for the UMI Super model is already live via the OTA. So far so good on their promises about the  frequent updates and customer care so thumbs up.

With the new update come quite some optimizations like improved Wi-Fi sensitivity, better touch screen sensitivity, camera tweaks, fingerprint scanner accuracy fix and as a cherry on the top the brand new “Background Task Clear” function.

So what’s this “Background Task Clear” stuff about ? Well it’s a customized RAM management tool allowing for more control of the applications running in the background with a whitelist function. UMI are pretty happy with this feature and are not afraid to brag about it, comparing it to OnePlus 3 and of course claiming their solution is better.

Incidentally my OnePlus 3 is arriving today and the UMI Super is already in my hands for testing and review so i can investigate those claims and we shall see what’s the real truth about that. But anyway if you are a UMI Super owner don’t hesitate to update to the latest  firmware version, bugfixes are always a welcome sight.

    as it relates to the oneplus 3 i was dissapointed in the ram management and the defence was better battery life.. but i suppose for those who dont care about multitasking good for them and i must say the task clear feature is pretty nice

      exactly.. since the task clear feature leave user a choice to choose what they want and what they don’t want. I was very disappointed by OP3’s management because I sister just bought one before they make this announcement. 🙁

    please investigate the idle drain in the umi super. 4000 mah lasts only a day

      I can easily get a more than day of web browsing, messaging and phone calls

      • justyfier
        June 23, 2016

        yes, but for light use, you should get at least 2 day with a 4000mah. check your idle drain after 1.5 days it will be 50% or more when it should only be like 2%. Then think how long the would last if this was fixed

        • zphantomeye

          I reviewed it and m y idle drain is about 1% every 2 hours.

          • justyfier
            June 27, 2016

            still to much but alot less than mine. Have you done anything to get these results? mine is at least 30% a day

          What pho e does not drain about as half in 1.5 days man????
          Signal reception by it self can eat up the battery in most cases.

            check the oneplus one. after a day idle drain is 1%

              I can do the same to. But I guess they do it by leaving the phone at one spot all day long not moving it with most antennas down…. I can do that too, but I didn’t buy a feature phone for a reason.

              The opo was my previous phone so with the same use it’s 1% versus 25%-30% a day!!!

    Everytime a shitty UMi gets an Update, it’s big news!!

    My $40 (limited offer) Blackview BV2000s also got an Update about 1 month ago and fixed many bugs, but I don’t see any article about this… =P

    I received my Umi Super last week and I am happy that it supports all major European LTE bands. I have been with google Nexus devices since Samsung Galaxy Nexus but I have to be honest the Umi Super surprised me a lot. Its really fast and I got 46k in Antutu which is all what I need. I guess Mediatek have improved their chips a lot

        I reviewed it. Camera doesn’t focus properly so pics can look very washed out, the most intense games run fine
