The phone should cost between N70,000-N80,000

My Verdict 💡
When it comes to Chinese companies cloning devices, I’m not really surprised because it’s not a new thing. However the good part of it is that you actually get a device that’s a bit similar to your dream phone but I’ll be honest , there’s nothing like having the one that actually had the original design. However the Umidigi is a good device and if you’d like to get the phone, I definitely approve of it.
