UMI London tested in a drop test

UMI London is the most recent UMI device and while it’s certainly a budget one it’s still looking quite good and probably will even be quite sturdy. UMI marketing experts are trying to talk about it as a “ruged” model, though i have a hard time fully believing that.

To prove such claim they have released a video with UMI London getting dropped from various heights, but that’s more of a gimmick than some real tests and surely far cry of anything resembling proof about a “rugged” smartphone. Still worth checking out of course.

    Yea, and your components usually fail even without a fall. Pointless video.

    Umi is just an garbage, i do not want to complain it. But sorry, i can not help to do it if you buy one phone like UMI launched, you will have the same feel.

    Who are they marketing to? I don’t care if it can survive a hydraulic press or they throw it in and fish it out of an active volcano I still don’t want one.

    I wonder. If I jump 100 feet myself, with the Umi London in my hand, and when I am about to touch the ground, I shift my body in a horizontal plank position, and with a strong arm movement I splatter the Umi, screen facing the ground, would it break?

    And most importantly, will it blend?

    Guys, can there be a new section, in collaboration with Blendtec. For Chinese phones, and gadgets? I would totally subscribe

    Hi guys. I do not believe in this. On the Internet a lot of video. Phones break everything. Or is it my bad luck? Seen recently video as throw phone Uhans A101.

      I saw both video too. Creators of Umi and Uhans send me for the test your phones. I will upload real video.

    Very interesting video. I doubt that the smartphone continued work after falling. But it is unimportant. I don’t plan to throw my smartphone. Support 4G, as at the Uhans A101 smartphone is important for me.
