Hi,

I have a new s2 pro.  I'm going to post my experience here as I use the phone.  So far it's OK. No major problems but some annoying things..

Screen seems good.
Camera is so-so..
Can't add bookmarks to homescreen

There is a dim red light flashing behind the phone speaker grill all the time.  But there are no notifications.

Phone seems fast enough for me so far.  Certainly faster than my old Xiaomi Redmi note 3.

Cheers.

I just did the system update. Red light has gone off so it must have been that. Update is ok.
Stil can't add home bookmarks.

Where are home screen settings?

Also screen seems a bit unresponsive. Sometimes have to tap 2  or 3 times.

Sound quality is good. Tried it through my car amp today, via cable.

So far today on my first day of use, after 7 hours, still have 79% battery. My Xiaom (4Ahr) would be about 50-60 by now.

Day 1 of my Umidigi S2 Pro. Initially had charging issues but figured out USB c had to be firmly snugly pushed into S2 usb c port for connection to charge.
Malwarebytes found two system files that have adware, I am not happy with that, but I disabled the two apps and will see if that causes issues with the phone function, if not I will leave those two apps disabled (see my post on this on this forum). Not a fan of the red charging cable so I ordered a different one (black, braided cable) on Amazon. Took about 10 minutes at local AT&T store to get the phone working with my existing prepaid month to month AT&T account. Happy with phone so far. Bought it from GearBest.com and it took 4 weeks to arrive from China from Gearbest to USA (Minnesota).

Edited by tallnutt at 2018-1-15 09:59 \n\nYes, I had same trouble with usb socket, But it actually clicks in and is very secure. I found that the Chrome News feed home page had adware. I disabled the chrome news page and now its gone.. there's instructions on how to do it using the chrome://flags settings.
