Hello.
I bought a Umi Emax from Banggood.
According to the site, the 4G frequenties are: "4G: FDD LTE 1800/2100/2600MHz"
But according to the box the frequenties are: FDD 800/1800/2600, which is actualy better for me (Netherlands)
Which frequenties does my phone support, and how can i verify this?

Greets, Ger.

As the MT6752 fully supports Lte 800  exactly WHY is it not implemented on the eMax?

Hi Ger,

According to the specifications on official UMI eMax product page (http://www.umidigi.com/?page-UMIEMAX_Specification.html) the eMax only supports FDD 1800/2100/2600. These are the frequencies that I would expect your eMax to support.

Maybe there is a misprint on the box? Can you put a picture of it up?

Cheers,
Gruffles

Hello gruffles and UMIRussia,
Sorry to I have to say to this, but I's just kind of bullsh*t about miss print on box... . On your website and your official sellers, you declare 20band for long time, but after ColonelZap review you changed frequencies in silence, without any explain... . I am very happy with my Emax, but UMI marketing with lies (battery capacity too, doesn't matter that battery life i's great) , or ok if you want miss print are really p*ssing me off....

Here's a picture of the box, i hope you can read it (silver text on a silver box):
It would be nice if it had 800 Mhz, so it's a bit of a let down, still a nice phone tough.

Come on UMIRussia , don't try do dumbass from us. GeekBuyIng already changed his description too. When I was looking for new phone all webs had same frequencies include band20 (yes umi official website too, but I just not catch printscreen) and as I said after ColonelZap review UMi and his partners start changing description....

Hi,
I have exactly same problem as bencebacsi,stefi,Ford_Prefect.
I have bought Umi eMax - actualy 2 phones - 1 for myself and one for friend which I have recomended this phone.
And what a surprise after unpacking and founding out that FDD description from Box and UserManul are lies!
Band 800 is not working for this phone!
Im thinking of returning this phone back because without Band 800 it is almost useless for me...

The webshop: Banggood reported the right frequencies: FDD LTE 1800/2100/2600MHz, so i knew in advance it didn't have the 800 Mhz band.
But i was surprised to see it mentioned on the box, so i hoped it would support it.
Too bad it doesn't, but otherwise i am happy with it.

misprint on the box !!!!! how dare you spout that nonsense ?  band 20 was very clearly cited in each and every piece of publicity for emax practically up to the end of the flash sale . I know this because on the day I 'won ' my emax I watched the review from colonel zap, who I think was the first to question the veracity of some of the specifications. he called umi out on band 20 (and to a degres the battery capacity ) . so basically umi achieved a lot of european sales by this seemingly duplicitous marketing , THEN they removed band 20 from publicity ( but didn't immediately inform stores ) they are the same 4g bands as tcl m2u-identical looking phone-not even an original design . Don't get me wrong , I still like my emax , and I don't have a 4g contract , so in practice it makes no practical difference to me, but I just don't understand why these Chinese manufacturers feel compelled to lie about some specification or another -what else will they lie about? In the words of Jim Royle " misprint ?-my arse "
