There is no any lie.
Second camera is used as light sensor and gives more light coming to sensor in dark conditions also is focusing background on different conditions.
Nobody advertised that you can taking pictures on both cameras

Edited by bapje at 2017-9-22 07:34 \n\nhello Bencebacsi .

please dont remove this post and give answer to my questions on this forum!!

i am no fool and no liar, i read mixed messages and read with my own eyes that the s2 would get umidigi android 7 OS !!
but is removed aftherwards like my posts are removed!!

i am quoting you`re own words!!

The S2 would be built with the same Helio P20 processor used in Plus E, that can not receive Android 7 (or any later) upgrade, so it's releasing is in consideration. Maybe it won't be released.

The umidigi S also has the same P 20 processor ,how can it be it has android 7 on it if it is not possible to update a Helio p 20 phone to android 7??

Conclusion one or the other is true, or it is still possible to update the S2 to android 7 and umidigi won`t update it ,or the umidugi S has a fake android 7 shell on top of android 6 ,
please enlighten me what is true and how it is possible the S is sold with
UMI OS based on Android 7.0 ??  and has the same Helio P 20 processor. sorry i can`t help it that i am highly intelligent,


Basic Information
                                 Model                                UMIDIGI S
OS                                UMI OS based on Android 7.0
                                 CPU                                MTK Helio P20, Octa-Core, 2.3GHz, 8xCortex-A53
                                 GPU                                 ARM Mali-T880 MP2 900MHz

No, it's not the same P20 processor. UMi Plus E and the first (currently available) version of UMIDIGI S2 use the first generation of the Helio P20 processor clocked at 2.3GHz with the code name MT6757 and also printed MT6757 on the top of the chip as well. However, UMIDIGI Z1, Z1 Pro, S and the next (future) version of UMDIGI S2 use the second generation of the Helio P20 SoC clocked at 2.4GHz with the code name MT6757D in the official flasher app (SP Flash Tool) and printed MT6757V on the top of the chip. So they are not the same. You can check the information I provided above by googling for it or if you flash/disassemble any of the mentioned models, you can see it. The existing Android 7 systems are not faked ones, of course. It also can be checked easily, so that would be quite a stupid cheating.

Hello Bencebasci,
Thank you for you`re clear answer, i don`t have these phones, and do not know about all the processors made and releases and they`re serialnumbers and differences
and think no regular buyer will be aware of these facts. for us a consumers a P20 processor is a p20 processor and all the same to us
It is not discussed on this forum so i hope you understand these things raises questions and creates great confusion.
I can not verify you`re answer because i don`t have these phones to verify this , just send me a S and a S2 si i will to be able to veryfy this   ( a joke)
i believe it will be the truth .
As the S is released first and the S2 can be concidered as a successor of the S, why using this older processor for the S2?? it is  a very unlogical decision to do and noboddy will expect this.
Umidigi is aware of the fact the S2 never can be updated in the future , in my eyes a very akward thing to do, also marketingwize and in fact it makes the S2 less worth and in my eyes because of that fact
not worth the normal retail prize asked for it and far to expensive because of this fact
it is in fact all about the looks that are so stunning, in my opinion umidigi models are more appealing tot the eye as other brands ,and that is why i was so dissapointed it never will get a update to android 7

i think a lot of buyers will not be aware of the fact the S2 never will get a android 7 update if they are compairing the specs of the different umidigi models
As the S has also the same processor on specs (the difference in P20 models is not communicated)  and running on android 7 they will assume it will get a update to
android 7 soon,  i did !! they will never will expect such a beautifull phone never will get a update to android 7 and in fact is not a normal situation , surely not for that prize,
I made this conclusion, that is why i did cancel the order of the S2, i think a lot of buyers will be very dissapointed if they will discover they`re beautifull new S2 never will get a android 7 update ,
Thank you for you`re clear answer, now i understand the confusion and hope umidigi will not do these things in the future again with new comming models ,

I wish they see all those comments and topics about the Android version and at least upgrade the S2 to Android 7 (or dreaming about 7.1) or they just will launch a planned obsolescence product.

That is the problem Katsutoshi the used processor can not run on android 7 because it is a older model processor so never will get a android 7 update
it is not the same P 20 processor used in the other never umidigi models, i guess you did not read the explanation Bencebascsi just gave us
Umidigi just had to use the newer p 20 processor like in all the other newer models , that is why a lot of people will be confused and think it will be updatable and will be
very dissapoited,they only say it runs on android 6 now,but do not mention it will not will never get a update to android 7
in fact when buying the S2 you are buying a straight end of life product ,and don`t understand this choice made by umidigi,
If it woud had te same processor as the z1 and the S The s2 would be worth the money asked for, in my opinion now it is not the case because the use of this older p 20 processor.
i can say it is very difficult to chose wich phone to buy
I did some better research now and can say the standard Umidigi S2 Pro will probably be one of the most costeffective phones
T
he fact is with buying the S2 pro you will get far more value for money compaired to the S2 and hope it will be on presale soon

I'm sorry but the release date of the Mercury Silver S2 Pro (with NFC) is not yet known. Maybe only near to the end of this year. That Euro Edition is not advertised anymore, sorry.
