Hello! I got the Umi HammerS from Amazon.de. It seems to me like a very nice smartphone but I have one big Problem that ruins my impression completely. The wifi signal is very weak and also it keeps disconnecting from the router every few minutes. It's nearly impossible to use the smartphone in my living-room, which is only about 7 meters away from my router. In the last year I tested about 60 chinese smartphones and I never had a wifi signal that weak.
1. Could other members please report me about the wifi-strenght of their umi hammer S? Maybe I have a broken antenna...
2. Does anywone have an idea how to fix this problem?


Btw. Bluetooth-Signal seems to  be also very week with my headphones...

thanks for your answers and best regards from Germany.

UMI appear not to support any phone, just bring out new ones!

Anyway, to add to this debate. I have had this phone for 6 months. WiFi is quite bad and drops out many, many times.
Whilst at my sons house, it was the SAME bad, drop out connection....BUT, he had 2 separate connections, the 2ghz and 5ghz. I expected the 2ghz to be the best, it was not.
I switched to the 5ghz connection and it was reliable!!!! So, it "appears" that it is the 2ghz side of the phone that is broken!!

This issue has been reported to UMI team and they're working on it. Probably a firmware update will be needed.
Please, be patient until the solution will be provided.

I have the exact same problem. This needs to be fixed as soon as possible. A smartphone with no stable Wifi makes no sense, right?

I have seen a post who a user have switched to another WiFi protocol or frequency and this solved the problem .it's just a workaround because there is an issue with the protocol used by most of us.

Same problem over here, Wifi is very bad.
Unstable and many times it disconnects without any reason.

Hope UMI will fix this very soon!

The problem lies in the software. I double-checked it with a friends umi Hammer S. The smartphone is nealry unusable because of this problem.

Must be a software problem indeed.....the question however is.....will and when will UMI solve this problem with another ROM?
Not many answers from UMI over here, that's a shame.

I also am having wifi connection issues with the Hammer S. I have not tested on a purely wireless G signal, but N keeps dropping out. I hope that this is not a hardware design issue with the antenna...

I have the same problem.

I travel alot, when i get to my hotel (or coffee shop or wherever) and connect to the wifi, it works...for about 2mins, then it gets dropped.

This makes this phone a total waste of money and time, very frustrating. My laptop connects fine, as does my crappy 5 year old samsung tablet, but this brand new phone is useless.

Feel like throwing it in the sea!

This is a basic need for any phone, come guys sort it out!
