I'd never heard of Uhans before today. It's a Chinese phone manufacturer, and there are a lot of those, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that there are a few I haven't heard of. What did surprise me, however, is how obsessively honest and blunt Uhans is in its marketing.

Okay, first off, the company breaks down its product lines into a sort of acronym. How convenient!

  • U for Unique
  • H for Huge
  • A for Affordable
  • N for New
  • S for Stylish

But, Uhans would like you to know about its new "Balance" phone, which is a blend of the A and S series. According to China Gadgets Reviews, the phone will be about $100, so that's a definite A for Affordable. And I guess that pink color counts as S for Stylish. But Uhans, in its own write-up, is cautious:

Well let’s see how balanced the device is?

Here's a handy pie chart, to see the exact breakdown:

Okay, sure Uhans, we see you in your business suit, but what does it look like when you let your hair down?

Nice, love it.

Or how about this Father's Day Facebook post, which gets a little personal, and also explains how long forever is for:

Sometimes even mystery can be blunt:

And then there's this tweet, where Uhans wants to clarify that nothing's perfect but at least it's trying hard!

Obviously I will probably never own a Uhans phone in my life. Also, Uhans' U product line looks like a total Vertu ripoff. But hey, we all make mistakes. What's important to remember is: "Nothing's close to perfection."
