Initial Coverage

In the field of China smartphones UMIDIGI has its place and is already one of the better known producers. Nevertheless, the manufacturer is often in the criticism, especially with regard to the hardware specifications to make more false information. The same could apply to the UMIDIGI S2 Pro. Especially that "Nano-Coating", which aims to protect against water and dust, leaves questions unanswered. Although there are indeed such (spray) coatings, which can protect the hardware from water, from a complete and long-lasting water protection is not to mention. Who orders the UMIDIGI S2 Pro already now, should not be one of the first to go swimming with it as a precaution and rather wait for the first test reports to the device.
