AliExpress & UMIDIGI A5 Pro Android 9.0 Pre Sale Fact


After attracted by very good configuration and features of UMIDIGI A5 Pro, Did you order this phone from AliExpress just to land in shock?

Yes, Even I had to. In the third week of May, UMIDIGI marketed its product and within three days, more than 12000 pieces were sold at about 95 dollar price.

The special feature of this phone is 4GB RAM with 32 GB ROM, P23 helium octa core and triple camera.

 The phone looks decent. That is why till now as of 13th June 2019, more than 19000 pieces are sold in aliexpress. But wait, let me also tell you that none of them has yet been shipped.

In the information before buying, they nowhere mention that this is pre-order. Only after buying you see information like this.

As of 21st May, when I bought a phone on the second day of sale, the processing time was 45 days and it has not yet been shipped till today.

It was confirmed to me by shipper in a message saying,

 Dear buyer, the A5 Pro is pre-sale, it will be in stock next month(Expected on the 12th,maybe early).When we get the stock, we will ship each customer according to the order, thank you for your patience.

 While initial estimation was 12th June, later they changed the date to 25th June with the following type of message.

I personally had never seen such a long time for the pre-sale phone. By attracting customers in the name of low price, they have collected almost 19000 (nineteen thousand presale order). 12000 of those order were collected on the third day itself while other 7000 are done since then. With such a high number of order, these company might take minimum July 15 to ship all these orders.

Let's say, every phone at the price of 90 $ bought in advance of 45 days, total money they collected is 

90 * 19000 = 1,710,000$ 

i.e. One million and seven hundred and ten thousand dollars.

WOoooooo. This is a very big amount to collect for investment. 

The bad part of this Pre-sale scam is that customer don't know about this before they buy.

And yes, to the worst,
this phone doesn't have any insurance. So, if it stops in mid-way, you are gone!

It may be gone actually. 

I will write a detailed review of the phone once I get it. 

Till then see ya.
