This is my review of the UMI eMax, a very well rounded China phone with lots of power(40000 Antutu), a great 5.5" 1080p screen, MTK 6752 Octa Core processor running at 1.7Ghz with a Mali T760 GPU, 2GB of Ram, and 16GB of memory (in one single partition, nice). This also has a huge 3500mah battery with all day long life, even for a power user. It has multi day use for a moderate user easily.
But the best thing about this phone, and all UMI phones really, is the ease in which you can flash roms, backup and restore your phone, and simply customise it with the greatest of ease using a free download from UMI's site called RootJoy. It works seamlessly even on Windows 8.1, has a simple easily figured out UI, and is really a joy to use. Plus, if you still want to flash rom's without a computer or RootJoy, the eMax has a well developed Recovery mode available by simply pushing and holding the power up and power buttons at the same time, nice. Simply download the rom you want to use, use the above mentioned method, and BAM
you got a custom rom installed, easy peasy :-) Congrat's to UMI for making such powerful tools available to use, all for free!
The rom I'm using in the above video comes from a forum in Spain called Moviles Dual Sim, and the rom is made by a mod called MANOWARACERO, it's based on the latest 4.4.4 KitKat rom by UMI, and it just plain rocks! See the video for all included in the rom, it's quite a bit, and it makes for a lot of good, stable fun using your eMax. Thanks to MANOWARACERO for uploading such a nice rom! Here's the link to it for all who want to try it out (it's a spanish site, but Google Translate works great!):http://www.movilesdualsim.com/tema/rom-mod-umi-emax-basada-kitkat-4-4-4-v04-19-6-15-por-manowaracero.106572/
