After taking a photo in the camera mode, I tried to open the photo through bottom left icon and it shows me a green screen.

Anyone have the same issue?

Can't decide if I wanna keep it or not

My Realme 3 is way less laggy and has 32gb more storage
You thought this was an upgrade?

At the worst case I thought I'd be able to resell it for a minor profit if I decided I didn't like it
But the AliExpress price has only gone down (if anything), since we all pre-ordered months back
And the OS on the Umidigi A5 Pro is laggy , and looks more like Gingerbread / Kit Kat 4/5 Android OS than OS 9 Pi

I don't even want to peel off any of the stickers because , although it feels solid (metal housing , silicone case included is good, etc.) , I'm not sure how much use I'm gonna get out of it ...
The only advantage to it : Global Bands , which the Realme 3 doesn't have .

Yeah unless youre into the global bands, realme has a significantly better chipset amongst other things.

UMIDIGI already planning to release yet another phone. Not a lot of details about it yet but it's called the UMIDIGI X.

6.35-inch full-screen AMOLED display
in-screen fingerprint scanner
48MP AI triple camera with an ultrawide-angle lens.
18W fast charging
"multi-functioning" NFC
4150mAh battery

No info on storage or ram size or even the price. They plan to unveil the phone on August 5th. Curious to know what bands it will support.

With Realme 3 (which is an offshoot of Oppo) , as with Umidigi , what assurances do we have that they aren't using a keylogger to collect all of our passwords with possible future malicious intentions? Is the Android operating system truly secure enough to prevent root-level access to all of our raw data ?

Hey all, I just wanted to say I ordered the phone on July 3rd and it just got shipped. So if anyone else ordered around that time too, you may get a shipping notification soon.

Mine downloaded the update, but something happened when it installed it: now the screen keeps going between black and the "Umidigi (link to the world) powered by android" screen (for like 30 minutes now...). I'm quite puzzled/disappointed by that. Any clue?
Hi pob444, have you been able to get the phone back?
i'm interested as to what steps you've been taking so far.
not sure how familiar you are are with resetting a phone or whether it is needed at all.
but i found this link on how to proceed with an older umidigi but i'm pretty sure it's the same 3 finger salute. hard reset

but if you've never done stuff like that, be very careful, consider taking your phone to a shop...
