I received my phone a week ago. In general, the Umidigi F1 is responsive and fast. I'm happy with the F1, but the screen and the camera. The camera is a little below the average for his price range, I hope that this can be fixed by software. The screen is dim and the backlight is not uniform, there is a luminous smudge at the lower border near to the back soft button. I uploaded some pictures to show it, but in the images is not as notorious as in live view. I really was waiting for a better screen. Also, I have the problem with the low volume on calls.

Hello all,

I'm sorry to pollute the topic with my issues but I can't create a new post.

I have a couple of issues and questions for Umidigi (and also for the community).

1. Camera
Some say pictures are blueish, I say they are reddish
I did a couple of tests and got too much red in the photo and I suddenly discovered that the camera could produce a DNG file on top of the JPG file. I was surprise to see that the picture in DNG was MUCH better, it's like no treatment is applied. If that's the case, the camera sensor is probably better than it looks like but it's all wasted with the wrong processing today.

Umidigi: are you conscious of this? If yes, would it be possible to avoid any treatment and allow the user to apply his preference?

All: has the camera electronic stabilization ?

2. Network support
The phone is promoted with a whole lot of frequencies which is good. One of them was particularly interesting for me, it's the B28. It's a frequency used in France by Free but the feedback that I get from my visitors on my blog is that it doesn't work at all.

Umidigi: what is is your vision on this?

Thanks

Hi.   I just received an OTA update, and one of my earlier problems (proximity sensor not working) ...

For everyone's benefit:    The notifications issue was indeed solved by turning Duraspeed off.
Once Duraspeed is turned off, all notifications are actually appearing on screen when they should.

There is a focus driver issue with the camera lens module, which has the effect, that the aggressive postprocessing tries to compensate the lack of sharpness with sharpening.
If the focus is correct,(only in the ROM 1.3.2019 with touch focus) s. sample below, there ist an a strong noisereduction, which filters the fine details and the contrast is much too strong.
There is also sample with the mi 8 Lite, which shows the issues in postprocessing.

The raw pictures are ok. Is there a developer who can adjust the parameter in the libcameracustom.so vendor-lib an reduce the smudge ?

Hello,
did you try to use third party camera? As Pixrl or Photo Studio?
Sometime you can solve just using these kind of app.
