Where to fix an UMI Super

16 posts in this topic

It's a great phone, great specs for the price, but I broke the screen and I can't find out where to fix it. I contacted UMI support, no reply. I contacted UMI Thailand on Facebook, no reply.

I ordered a screen replacement on Ebay and some phone repair guys gave it a try and managed to break it worse.

I only got to use the thing for a month, I really want it back

 

Any ideas?

This is exactly why our phones are Samsung.

I understand completely.

However, I took a chance and I am dealing with the downside. Fortunately it is a 6000 baht phone, not a 25,000 baht phone.

Sorry about the double post.

I will likely have to get another phone, but I am going to at least try to find a way to fix it.

I have a backup phone in the meantime.

You better hope that you don't need Samsung service on any phone that no longer has a warranty. I will NEVER buy another high end or any Samsung phone again. To each his own.

If you don't mind saying, how much did that new screen cost you?

I would think any top end phone with a curved glass screen would be expensive to fix if, like me, you're stupid enough to drop it. The difference is that Samsung is one of the few brands that have a good service network here.

I feel your pain, unfortunately its the downside of having a Chinese branded phone, i have had a couple of Xiaomi low-mid range phones and once i have dropped it enough times and the cheaper weaker screen goes then its time for a new phone.

Yes I agree about getting a Chinese branded phone, not a big chance getting it fixed if it brakes.

 

I got the same phone as OP and it's still working fine despite I also dropped it but luckily enough it landed on one corner and slightly bend the Alu frame but to no ill effects.

 

For my limited use, it's fine smartphone, actually I use it quite a lot when off-shore working, surfing, keeping in contact with my family and so on.

 

I keep my phones for 2 years and then give them to my son (no one will buy a 2nd hand Chinese phone) and he have so far gamed my old IQ II to death. Next will be my UMI Super but hopefully first in +1 years time when I had my use of it.

 

I can live with spending roughly 100$ a year on my phones considered the good specs you get, if you are willing to go Chinese.
