    Although it's battery life isn't as good as the Oukitel it has pump express charging (or whatever they call it) and it charges so fast the battery is no issue at all. Easily lasts a full day of use anyway.
    No problem, I got the Oukitel K6000 coming today and I have not really played with phones for years so was just after a bit of a heads up on what to look for when I review it.

    Hi m8 I got the power2 which is almost identical. Chipset, processor, ram and ROM all the same, just the camera is different, mine is great, looking forward to hearing how you get on with yours. Cheers. Andy

    after reading this thread and doing some research on the net i finally decided to retire my iphone and bought a umidigi z pro.
    its quite fast and size wise just about acceptable for me - wouldnt want anything bigger.
    however, the wifi speed & range is rubbish compared to my iphone 6s and the bluetooth is a nightmare, i have awful trouble getting it to sync my fitbit watch. the camera is total pants compared to the pictures taken by my old iphone too.

    i'll persevere with it for another week or so but i can see my wife ending up with this phone and my iphone being put back into service - overall i am quite disappointed with it

    Thanks to tiggerbiker

    I am using an iPhone 6 at the moment but all I really use it for is a few apps and the last outgoing call I made on it was December 2016, the only reason I have an iPhone 6 is because my wife upgraded and I always get her old phone, I very much doubt I will be keeping this I was more looking for the 'important' things to people I should be looking at on it or anyone's opinion on it who has one.

    A further thing about the battery life on the Lenovo P2 is it has a power saving mode with its own sliding switch. It disables functions, leaving SMS and phone calls. My battery is on 83% and if I slide the switch it says there is just under 98 hours of standby time remaining.
    No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...

    Have you tried flashing a custom ROM. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is just one site that has ROMS for Chinese phones. A lot of the off the shelf Chinese roms are a bit flaky mine was actually fine and I get very good wifi and BT but have read a lot that got massively improved features etc by flashing.

    I notice that they claim the Umidigi Z Pro is soon to get a Android 7 upgrade. Might be worth giving it a second blast in a few months after doing the upgrade. May fix your issues ???
