  1. Umidigi Bison real world user.

    Three issues:

    1. When using camera flash, flash fires after photo taken, resulting in black photos.

    [other people also report this issue: https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=ru&u=https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php%3Fshowtopic%3D1009153&prev=search&pto=aue]

    2. When connecting to wifi, mac address is not retained when reconnecting to the same wifi, even after changing the setting to retain.

    3. The phone is advertised as having two customisable buttons, but only one is.

    [see https://community.umidigi.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=19520]

    Haven’t tested the claim of being water resistant yet by as the charging and headphone ports are open, it’s likely the metal within will rust when used in salt water.
