    1. dont buy .go for gionee dream d1 ,amoled screen,gionee has more than 100 service center.

  1. Sir,please tell about umi company.IS it trustworthy? Please tel me sir,i am willing to buy umi x2,should i buy?

  2. We should wait for service support to open up 7 then go 4 these new entrants. Both umi x1 & jiayu g3 , launched last year had teething problems & there is no gurantee that it wont happen again with x2 and g4. Besides they should come along with retail purchase and COD also.

  3. Don’t get excited as yet, the Site seems to be fake, The number is inactive, the emails aren’t answered. Moreover i heard that the X2 has few problem for which the Developers r fixing & most likely will be released only End of Mar or April….

    I suggest not to preorder from the site unless some confirms that these guys actually exist…

  4. I have tried to make purchase of umi x2 from website but was not successful. I also email to their email id but have n not received any reply. The phone is also never answered. Please let me know how can I purchase umi x2.

  5. Hi gogi,

    hats of to u for ur remarkeble job. i have doubts in my mind like regarding pre booking an orders from umi or gionee through online. how far they r trustworthy. what u will suggest.

  6. Hi Gogi,
    UMI have updated the price for the Flagship device @ 14k from earlier announced 20k. So much of hype of comments on their FB page forced them to rethink about the pricing for India market.
    They have also stated that after so much of hype, they discussed with you and then updated the final price for India market. Is it true? If it’s true, then you deserve three cheers.
    Three cheers for Gogi…..
    Hip hip hurray…
    Hip hip hurray…
    Hip hip hurray……….
    Even though it’s priced at 14k, I think before prebooking we should force these Chinese brands for COD. Also, actual shipping dates will be interesting. If the shipping is starting after 15th, there is no point in running after this. Because, other giants like GIONEE (seems more trustworthy), GIAYU, IOCEAN will come up with their prices. Also, CANVAS HD will be perhaps there in retail stores. So we can get many options and their prices.
    Still better to wait for a week atleast….
    Anyways, congrats Gogi…..
    The brands are definitely taking into consideration your awesome work in past 6-7 months. You deserve this too with all your hard work….
    Really appreciate…..

    1. Thanks Deepak, well the price I suggested for a little more but they ultimately came down further. Now a tough choice to make between A116 and X2 well all to the after sales support.

  7. gogi, on the FB page umimobile have stated that they have revised the price of X2 to 14k after consultation with u. Is it true? And do they have the X2 ready for delivery in India?

  8. Gogi, they’ve taken your name in umimobiles Facebook page. They say, they called you before pricing the mobile for Indian market. Is it true? Can we trust and make payment? Please advice.

  9. Thank you Gogi for suggesting Rs 14000 price. (Rs.19999 was shocking). When does pre-booking starts? Keep us updated.

  10. hi
    gogi sir have checked this out… what umi mobile says in there fb page
    is this true…plz reply sooon and whats your take on this???? asap

    Umi Chinese management just called up Tech Reviewer Mr. Gogi Rana {}, to take the final call on pricing for India, judging that Umi has still to setup India service centers & brand name, also the Indian customer feels that China Mobiles do not have quality or warranty, and Umi needs to make a name hence the outcome is

    Rs: 14,000 INDIAN PRICE ( shipping free !!) Flagship Model

  11. Hi gogi sir,
    they called u for price consultation.congrats and thanks for 5000 bargain..and now price is 14000 cool..what say u? Should i go for it at this price…

  12. finally they r revising the price after array of two likes and over 50 negative comments ..hoping for price around .13000 fingers crossed..

  13. haahha yeah they deleted that post from fb bcoz of negative cooments on price tg of 20k now they are again deciding the price for indian market
