    The specs of this phone are cool and I hope it really gets the Android Nougat, as UMi promised for a Christmas gift.

    Oh well I gues I will be the first to comment.. The main reasons for buying the Umi are the fact it has a large battery with fast charge, usb type c and it isn’t made by elephone!

    I like the front finger print scanner, large battery and vivid display. Looks like a good handset.

    I like the front finger print scanner, the big screen the 4GB of ram and the fact of UMI update the phone for Android 7.0, this is verry good for me, and is the main reasons for buying the Umi.

    Good specs with 4GB ram and 5,5″ screen.

    Main reason for buying this: to try out how they’re working. And, by that, I mean “for curiosity sake”, but most of all to have a solid evidence about why you shouldn’t buy from umi anymore. I used to like them before their “elephonization”. Now they’re just a mediocre brand (not the worst, just mediocre) with a stupid marketing department. For example, I’ve had enough of their claims about how their camera is better than iphone’s: it’s just a regular camera screwed up by mediocre lenses and bad sw, so stop bragging around when you’re not working on it just using stock mediatek codes. It’s not the worst camera, but the marketing want you to think it’s top tier one, so you should buy it to see for yourself and realize that what they announce is not what they deliver. Again, it’s not the worse, but it’s not worth that much money they’ve been asking lately: at that price there are far better options.

    Buy a product once if you have to, so you’ll know it wasn’t worth your money, and never buy again until they’ll start to work properly again without all of this marketing BS they’ve started to push around recently, so they’ll know that they’re not apple: umi can fool people just once at most.

    I’ve owned Umi Iron in the past and i was really satisfied with the phone in the overall. Now after some new phones that they launched they may have improved a lot as a company, so I’m willing to try the Plus, plus, they add large batteries on their phones which is an important feature for me. Nougat is on company’s plans and all of that makes it for a great deal. Thanks and good luck to everyone.

    Just found it yesterday. First what I’ve mentioned is a battery, not so big to make phone bulky and not so small so you can use it more than one day. Second is realy nice FHD 5.5″ screen, I love Sharp screens, colors are amazing and third – Android 7 from the box.

    October 19, 2016

    Out of curiosity should be the main reason. With so much hype about this phone then why not? It should be fun and satisfying if it is all true and cry your heart out if it is not.

  23. mikey
    October 19, 2016

    Because I have never lucky…… I tell you why I won’t buy this phone:
    – old helio p10 (for that money)
    – no oled
    – low antutu score
    – no slow motion
    – no nano sim
    – just gray and gold color
    – bad reviews other models (software/hardware)

    now I’m verry sure I wont win this phone
    or maybe? 😉

  24. Gabor Okros
    October 19, 2016

    4000Mah battery for me is the highest feature of this phone. From the part of the world i come from with unsteady power supply, i simply do not need to worry about flat battery, because UMI Plus has got me covered with its plus size battery

  31. himanshu mahajan
    October 19, 2016

    first of all hats off to the umi engineers for creating a smartphone that not only competes with likes of iphone 7 and samsung s7 edge but also outperforms them in some sections. umi team must be really proud of themselves.if i have to select 3 best best features of umi plus,first one will be incredible speed and software optimization ,second would be its fast fingerprint scanner and one would be its long lasting is an overall good package.thanks to umi for making umi plus affordable..come on folks,what do you want more in 180 usd?

  36. vjuricic
    October 20, 2016

    In this phone is the best characteristic…that I really do not need it.

  37. Chickens
    October 20, 2016

    If you want a phone and don’t really care about software support or if the company has a history of falsely advertising the product, or if you want a phone that goes for $220 with a P10 processor, or maybe if you don’t care that the company aggressively markets their products so hard that you internally cringe at every new UMi ad.

    Then this phone could be in your radar. Forget about the other phones below $200 that can be reasonably good, this one has 4GB RAM! Forget about that other phone that has 4GB but costs below $200, this one is free! FREE!

  38. Eldan Gabay

    I bought a UMI MAX for my wife. When it turned out that it’s display is much better than that of my Asus Zenfone 2, I got really angry. Now I envy her for her phone. I really need a new mobile that’s even better than her. This should be a UMI PLUS.

  47. Jeep ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ
    October 20, 2016

    When I started with the UMI Zero a while ago I didn’t knew quite what to think of the brand. Now they clearly made a name for themselves and I would love to have one again!

    5.5″ is perfect for me and have never had a 4GB RAM phone before, eager to try that. The camera with PDAF should be at least the norm, it’s really good.

    Best parts of the UMI to my opinion is the Touch ID. Although I do not know the 2.1 specifications, I highly anticipate the extra security feature. Also the Fast Charging is something I really need. My phone doesn’t have both (touch ID & PE+) and I really miss it in daily life. PIN-code is secure but quite a hassle every time. And charging takes forever.

    I hope to have a chance! 🙂 Anyway: nice to have a give-away! 🙂

    Got my first UMI in 2013, Cross. At the time, umi did not
    know gizchina. I like to think I introduce umi to gizchina, asked Sasa, if she
    is still there.

  62. Abegunde Olusola Innocent
    October 21, 2016

    It’s worth every penny of the retail price, other brands would’ve made compromises in the hardwares to make ends meet, but UMI has proved over time with their smartphones that a good phone doesn’t have to cost a fortune.. Definitely a must buy

  63. Nicholas Joshua del Rosario
    October 21, 2016

    Awesome specs( high ram and batter) and performance for a really affordable price. Also the effort of the team of UMI to release this phone with an upcoming update to Android 7.0.

  64. Adebumiti Peter Adelowo
    October 21, 2016

    When Umi released the UMi Max, i was very impressed with the design, specs and even price. I though it would be hard for the company to top this device. However, I was pleasantly surprised when the Umi Plus was launched. UMi Plus, is a premium flagship phone with high end specs and brilliant beautiful design. On paper the maker made a phone with very competitive specs and design, and so far the reviews seen from top phone geeks rather validate UMi Plus as being up there with the very best in the market. Umi Plus comes out of the box with 4Gb RAM, FHD 5.5inch display, Helio P10 Octa-core and 4,000mAh battery. It is a phone that is raising the bar in 4GB flagship development.

  65. Arshnoor Singh
    October 21, 2016

    Umi Plus seems to be an amazing budget android flagship with 4 gb of Ram, Helio P10 Chipset, Full Hd screen, Samsung’s camera, 6000 series Aluminium unibody, Sony’s 4000 mAH battery with quick charge and Amazingly fast fingerprint scanner and pure Android marshmallow it seems to be the complete package at such an awesome price

  69. Daniel T
    October 23, 2016

    The main reason is the perfect design. A perfect device engineered to exceed expectations. More reasons? The big battery, enough RAM, that big amazing screen the latest specs, great performance for an out of the box product. I cannot wish for more. I would cherish it forever.

  70. Dan Valentin
