    Great phone! Only downside is an average camera.

    • +1 vote

      What does average camera mean? In comparison to all other phones released at the same time as this one?
      I've been looking at upgrading from a 3 year old phone, and all the new phones all have bad things to say about the camera. I'm pretty sure it'll be an upgrade for me, but whats the reason for the bad camera review?

      • +1 vote

        Basically the camera can take some okay shot if the lighting conditions are good but it fails in low light situations. The quality is nothing special and you may occasionally think to yourself 'why can't I take nice photos like my wife with her iPhone 11' your wife will notice you average shots and comment 'this is what you get when you buy a $200 chinadroid'

          Well said. I assume all of the bad camera reviews compare it to the iphone. I have seen some spectacular photos on a friends iphone 11 or whatever number its up to. I think its best to go by camera reviews, as they all advertise that they are capable of good photos in low light and night shots, but once you have the camera its not an automatic function. My current camera shows all the flaws once i share the photo or look at it on the computer.

        Whether this phone has better than your 3 yr old ( release date ? ) phone depends on the actual make/model you have.

        I am still using a 3 1/2 yr old ( after release, in May 2016 ) HTC 10, but like the then current iphone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 edge, all those phones had top cameras. So comparing the HTC 10 to this Jan 2019 released Umidigi F1, these older phones would still outperform the F1 in camera aspect.

        Just guessing, but out of all the current small and big brand lowest to highest priced smartphones released around same time as the F1, it's camera would be in the middle around 50% ( because there are sooo many lesser not/little known brands in the world that most Australians are not familiar with ).

        If your like many people who just want a decent handy camera on your phone, this will be fine and most likely feel more modern to use than on your older phone, for a little bit more there is the better camera on the Umidigi F1 Play.

          Not sure if this is of any value as a comment, but I know my Huawei Mate 9, can take better photos than my partners Samsung S10+, during the day…

          And the Mate 9, can do everything her S10+ can do, except wirelessly charge. And have 4k(I think) display. But I do know my battery, outlasts the S10+ :)

          And my phone is early 2017???

          • +1 vote

            @X4iVaz: +1 for comment. Your Huawei Note 9 had/has pretty high quality cameras, and so does the S 10+. That was the point I was making above, if you had one of the better cameras in phone a few even 3/4 years ago old phone, there might not be much in daytime photos compared to current midrangers and even top phones such as the S 10+.

            A lot would then also come down to splitting hairs and personal preference ( as top 50+- smartphone cameras are reasonable close for daytime photos ).

          axon 7 (i think may 2016), and I'm using a custom rom which has plenty of debate whether this allows a better camera2 api or the app can influence a better shot from the camera. i have been using opencamera for a while, but just switched to stock. As the above comment from ruski, I can take a good photo but its hit and miss. any movement gives distortion. I was previously adjusting the white balance (in opencamera) to balance the low light effect and getting good results. Otherwise my tanned skin friends look like unlockable characters in photos.

            @DarthAntz: Nice phone ( really wanted one from that Officeworks Clearence deal but missed out ).

            Unless your phone is in bad condition/bad battery/cracked screen etc, or you just want a newer phone/bigger screen, I would hang on to your Axon 7 as this is not a big step up ( for camera anyway ).

            You would really miss that awesome sound with good dac and front speakers from your Axon 7, but then again not many newer phones come close to that sound quality even now lol.

            • +1 vote

              @ozhunter68: Thanks for the good advice. Yeah I bought the phone for the DAC, and have been very impressed. I just got a new battery in Shenzhen for about $11, so that'll give me a few more years.
              Redmi K30 is on my radar, and its also got hi-res audio, size and camera upgrades.

              Camera zoom will be a standard feature next year, and thats something I am looking for in an upgrade. I've got the chinese version Axon 7 and dont have good phone reception, which is another reason for upgrade.

              • +1 vote

                @DarthAntz: Apparently the K20 also had some sort of better DAC I used my girlfriends it doesn't sound as good as the V20.

                Also as you did before you might be able to get gcam for this phone which should improve the photo quality.

              •  

                @DarthAntz: Not having decent reception is definitely a reason to upgrade to a phone with all the needed bands for our use here, maybe hang on till the K30 is a decent price. Keep your Axon 7 as secondary phone/music player as personally I find using two phones works for me, putting one with sim for hotspot where signal is best ( also don't get good reception where I live, but have phones/modems with needed bands ), then use other phone via wifi.

                Or when out you play music on one whilst not flattening battery on main phone etc.

                Not everyone likes it, but works for me.

                  @ozhunter68: I recently met someone in china who had 4 phones. Yeah i'll upgrade for a good price and more bands.

                    @DarthAntz: Haha, yes, some people have even more ( mostly kept in drawer at home ).

                    I am meaning using two not always but often during one week, even every few days.

                      @ozhunter68: Thanks for all this feedback. Saves me asking on the forums.

                      Yes i use my old phone to tether in one of my work locations due to poor reception. A few friends have old phones as mp3 players in their car etc. Theres always a function for old tech.

        It takes very acceptable shots in good lighting of still objects. It fails as a camera when trying to photograph moving subjects like children due to slow focus and software

        •  

          I've often read that software lets down the chinese phones, and its the advantage in the more expensive phones for cameras.
          despite having new phones getting 100megapixel cameras, im still taking photos that are less than my camera (8mp, compared to 20mp) because I'm more likely to send a photo to someone, than print one.

          I just read focus is related to the aperture value of the camera too, which has improved since my 3 year old phone.

          • +2 votes

            @DarthAntz: Most chinadroids use Samsung and Sony sensors, however, the software optimisation lets them down. Also, don't be deceived by pixel counts as the sensors on these phones are tiny.

    This is not the cheapest price this phone has been. Also the newer f2 has also been for sale for this price. Have heard good reviews of this phone but not that exciting for a flash deal.

    • +1 vote

      The cheapest the Umidigi F2 has been posted on Ozbargain is $281.38.

        Combined with shopback it'd have been around $250.. I know this because I was choosing between the F2 and Redmi note 8 pro around the same price point.. went with the note 8 pro and it is miles ahead of the F1 in terms of camera and performance (I miss stock android though)

      •  

        The F2 has not been released. Stories of people waiting months on pre-order.

        •  

          I paid just under $240 for the f2 with shopback and coupon.. but ended up cancelling because of the wait and because I saw one review video where it looked really chunky. People are still waiting though, it's crazy, seems like some sort of dodginess going on

          •  

            @Helenn: Typical UMIDIGI business model. Generate revenue through pre-order. Only produce just enough units for the pre-orders. Rinse and repeat. Save money on production of stock that sits idle.

    This or the samsung galaxy A20. Having a hard time deciding. I am happy with the Telstra A20 that I got for my fam, I am wondering if this is better for myself

    • +3 votes

      I've got both these phones, and I'd personally got for the A20 even though the Umidigi is better in most ways except the camera. The A20 does have an AMOLED display but the resolution kills it. The Samsung A20 has a nice shooter for a budget device.
