Weird it was just showing at $209 CAD for me too, but I refreshed and it was lower again. I guess they fixed it . Makes sense because they said the price was going to be $99 USD from May 23 - 29th.

I have to ask:

What all is the appeal to this phone?
Will it be your primary phone? Back-up? I know some mentioned gifts -- but is this ideal for anyone "younger" who might know a thing or two about smartphones?

I will say, from the "looks" department, this phone looks like a winner. But I'd have to wonder about camera quality, build quality, and obviously processor speed.

Price. Smiling Face With Open Mouth

In all honesty, price is driving this buy. It has a decent processor, can handle most tasks. Camera hardware is good. Software is getting there. I just got my third camera update on my F1 Play. As @Gothcake articulated perfectly earlier, it's the perfect parent phone! Face With Tears Of Joy

I'm bought two as phones I buy tend to only last a year. If it breaks I'll have a spare. I just cracked the screen of my note 5 pro and this will fill the gap til I figure out what I want. Disposable smartphone.

Wow ..got to hand it to ebates they are getting pretty quick at giving back the rebates recently to me!

Last few times I placed orders for other stuff..I received the rebate same day... for the Umidigi A5 Pro I ordered yesterday for $117.21...they just sent me a ebate rebate of $3.60...less then 24 hours after ordering!!

Makes my complete purchase cost along with my low percentage ccard cash back...for a total of $112.47 all in :)

I'm going to run this as a primary phone for a for a few weeks...the battery life on my Axon 7 is going downhill...can't get a decent replacement battery for it..I just changed it out beginning of March....now back to less then 3hrs. S.O.T :(

These Chinese phones regardless have gotten so much bettery over the last 1-1/2 year...they can now safely imho beat the lower end offering of say LG/Samsug that carriers love to "give away" and also give the mid-range offerings a good run for the money.

cheers!

Forgive my ignorance but since it's a presale, how late can I expect to get mine in Canada with DHL?

When your on the sale page... Where you choose which color you want etc... Where it's says free shipping... click there... It will bring a drop down with shipping options..one of them is DHL...keep in mind because it's a presale... You won't get yours before they actually start shipping by choosing DHL... But once shipping starts you will get it faster based on the DHL timeline they provide you if you choose to pay for the DHL shipping option

Yeah i figured they saw one of my previous posts earlier talking about experiences ordering cellphones from Aliexpress with the DHL option.... which had my mini rant about not ordering using DHL due to always being charged customs/brokerage fees....

DHL means brokerage and duties, almost guaranteed, so add another $30 to $40 onto whatever you paid.

I'm upgrading to a Redmi Note 7 from a 5 Pro, and my kid is getting the 5 Pro.
