Hola ?? I just re-checked Umidigi tech support fourm for a newer update/patch/release to fix the camera app - still, nothing ... no can't do.
Based on the specs - it's good hardware so I am thinking, their IT should come up with a better App to fix this for everyone, or else, I think many of us will be filing a dispute & bad press/publicity isn't going to help this small & growing company looking to get ahead against Xiaomi, Huawei & others (and, I still use those devices) The latest OTA dated 07052019 fixed the status-bar, touch-screen issue but not the camera app.
Main problem, it sometimes open & when it does, it's fine for a quick picture or 2 or more, not concerned about super sharp or extra HD images, etc. ... just that it works. Well, most of them, it just freeze up, not FC'd but totally unresponsive, period and that is annoying & unacceptable. It is running pure Android One 9.0 software/OS - everything else is fine, thus far. We have the Motorola X4 and G6, sold the Nexus 6 and traded the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, and have a pretty good feel on what to look for and expect out of this - not a $500 mid/high-end smartphone & not going to compare it to my backpup iPhone SE (gasp ... )
Umidigi just need to fix it for everyone to get a smooth, working Camera App. Now, I could try to install, sideload or run other Camera App but I won't - it's a brand new device and I want the stock app to work as advertised.
Don't know your ordering date as their shipping is clearly backlogged seriously, mine was paid in full on May 21 and just got it 5 days ago ... fingers crossed, maybe by the time you get it delivered, the problem is fixed & OTA firmware/app are released to address the problem.
Not sure if Umidigi will agree to cancel & refund if you open a dispute unless the deadline has expired without shipping info, and AliExpress cancelled & issued a refund automatically.
I've uploaded the screenshot of the "current" OTA patch that did NOT fix #1, #2 or #3 on mine as claimed.
The 2nd. screenshot show what I saw when I open the Camera App.
