  • The Umi Emax Android thoughts and first impressions

    Right so it arrived this morning from the big river
    so first up price and specs

    i paid 170 all in for phone tempered glass cover and case and a set of bluetooth headphones for the wife as they had money off if bought with phone
    cost of actual phone was 139 can be found cheaper but i thought use the big river in case i need to return

    specs
    5.5" full hd screen 1080 x1920
    mediatek mt6752 64bit
    arm a53 1700mhz 8 cores
    mali t760 mp2 2 cores
    android 4.4 kit kat

    so it arrived earlier first thoughts were the box looked of good quality and presentation was very good.
    the phone itself feels good in the hand not too heavy not too light. the back is brushed alu effect and it does feel a little cheaper compared to my old sony z3,

    heres a coule of pics





    i am trying kitkat out first before i add in adroid 5. but so far ive tried a couple of games and they run smoothly it doesnt get hot under use but then android 5 may change that. its a nice package out the box the dual sim function is simple set one for data calls etc and second just for incoming work calls.

    battery is a massive 3780mah and its taking a little while to get it full but hoefully it will last a fair while.

    so far first two hours of use im very impressed screen is good and crisp camera is ok all my apps work so far and i have memory card slot as well as dual sim the samsung a7 which i was gonna get had dual sim or single sim and micro sd option not all three.

    will update the thread as i test it more and will try the rootjoy update later,

    So far though defintely the right move was half the cost of a A7 and feels really nice

                I like MIUI, seems to be plenty to mess with on the site.

                        Oh dear, get TWRP installed when you install the original rom, then just take a back up and then flash back whenever you want, saves a lot of time.

                          i backed up all the data and apps before i added miui rom so shouldnt take long to fix.

                          Umi saying two weeks til the android 5 rom is released for it.

                          i have to say the software for doing the custom roms is simple but effective i like it. it works well
