UMI X1 CHINESE MADE PHONE REVIEWED
This is the very slim and elegant UMI X1 which is one of the best selling phone in China right now.
This phone is very slim and has all the features of a branded phone. It has 1gm RAM, IPS HD 720p screen and a dual core MTK6577 processor. This phone comes with Android 4.0.4 ICS but the official 4.1.2 ROM is available and I have already upgraded it. This is now available at many other online retailers and on Fastcardtech which has the lowest price of them all. This is only $190 with Free Shipping. I highly recommend this phone and I advise you to get a second battery because the battery is small to keep the phone slim. This phone from Fastcardtech came with the KFT GPS antenna. Get this phone HERE.

note: I apologize for the choppy video at the first part due to many video dropouts (glitches) that I had to cut away.
Below is a video of the antenna fix for those who received the first batch and the GPS fails to work.
