User Reviews and Opinions


  1. This is a very good budget smartphone with its strong point at the water and dust resistance but my downside at the processor angle considering the price.
    Anyways kudos to UMUGIDI

  2. I think I would go for this mediatek-powered Umidigi Bison 2 smartphone. I really like the features and specs of this smartphone. Going to try it!

  3. In my opinion, this Bison 2 pro will be a good affordable smartphone with all these classic features such as Mediatek helio chip and the 6150 mAh battery backup.

  4. This is the worst phone I’ve ever used, the seller has replaced it twice for me with the same model, but both have the same problem, the screen keeps shaking and it doesn’t work. not worth buying
