No, but you can check your TV's temperature.

It's an infrared receiver, not an IRDA transmitter.

Avoid umidigi at all costs. There is a reason its this cheap. Don't be fooled by specs numbers.

I have been using this brand for over 5 months, no problems. The camera had an issue, but the FW update fixed it.

Keep in mind that in Android 11 you can get security updates via Google Play, so the lack of updates/support from the manufacturer is less of a concern.

Agree.
My A5 Pro has 4GB RAM. After many security updates with bug fixes, the camera is working fine.
I will wait for the A11 Pro with more RAM and Amazon.ca sale. By then, the firmware will have a few more bug fixes.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.
Public Mobile $36 5GB, $12 250MB, 2x $6 50min/50text, Zoomer $36 4GB plan,
Fido $5 4GB plan with a free tablet, $0 FPL home phone.

1. False.
2. True. That's why make sure it works perfectly before sealing the AliExpress payment window.
3. False.
4. False.

I have the A5 Pro. Really not bad.
But I must admit having text like BEYOND DREAMS permanently emblazoned on the back is a dealbreaker for me.
Probably looks perfectly professional in Asian countries but really not in English-speaking countries...

Not all of their phones get support. I have F2 Play and no updates for over a year. If I could put it onto Android 11 that might help but no dice so far.

They support A line of phones more than any other they have.

I don't know Umidigi but I disagree about Aliexpress. I've always gotten a refund when there was an issue.

A simple case should fix that easily. I always get a case so I don't care so much about the color and logos on the phone.

Had a Umidigi phone for over a year, no issues. It works fine for casual uses. At this price points its treated as a disposable item.

It is nice to know. My A5 Pro is great after many security updates with bug fixes. My camera is working fine now. I will get another Axx phone when my A5 Pro dies. But this A11 has only 3GB RAM. I will pass now and wait for the Pro version from amazon.ca.
