hi all! i'm curous about people's thoughts on the button ... i tried them out in a store and my girlfriend and i agreed they seemed a little tough to push. would imagine this is even more of a problem in the heat of things! some of the reviews confirmed my fears on this, but i really love the feel, rumble, and patterns of the uma so i'd love to hear whether or not people think its worth the control issues, and/or if there is a comparable product in anyone's opinion. i should add that i dont find the hook of the g-ki particularly appealing, but perhaps the settings are comparable?

From what I've heard, the G-Ki is a bit weaker.

Just my opinion, but I wouldn't let the buttons be a deciding factor or issue. They're not an issue to me, and they do "break in" with use. The pattern button is kind of a pain, but I admit, I never use it.

I'm not sure what would be comparable. LELO's Liv is a similar shape, but I don't think the vibrations are the same and it's a bit weaker from what I've heard. The Vanity line is supposed to be deep and rumbly, but it's very different in form in and control (and no patterns). Form 6 has its own issues.

Thanks, Chirple!

What troubles you about the pattern button? I'm particularly intrigued by the patterns so it would matter to me how user friendly they are.

The Form 6 certainly doesn't have the same wonderful smooth feel as the Uma, but what other thoughts do you have on its comparability to the Uma?

The buttons are very hard to push. It's not really an issue to me as I generally put it to high and keep it there. I have a Mimi which had a similar (but not quite as bad) issue with the buttons. After a while, they broke in and now they are much easier to use. I would assume the same will be true of Uma. Mine have already gotten a little easier, though I haven't gotten to use it as much as I would like.

The pattern button is a pain because you have to sort of press it in and it isn't raised or anything. So you almost have to have a nail to do it. I don't have nails and I have a bit of trouble with it sometimes. I don't use patterns though, so this doesn't present a problem for me personally.

If you're the type that will change patterns and speeds a lot when you use something, it may be an issue. If not, I wouldn't really be too concerned about it. It's a personal thing though. Since I don't fiddle with buttons, I don't really worry too much about how hard to press they are outside the five seconds it takes to turn it on and get it to the speed I want.


G-Ki is not nearly as strong. It is a full two vrooms lower in strength at the internal part. I love G-Ki, but it is weak internally.

I don't have Form 6 to make comment.

The Vr8 or Vr9 are both good, but different. They are a different type of rumble. They are a hair weaker than Uma, but still very strong. They don't have any patterns, so if you like those that may be a problem. I like my Jopen's better than Uma, personally. The vibration type (the specific rumble of the Jopen vibrators) works well for my body. Uma is wonderful, too.

I would probably advise against it because of the buttons. It's hard enough to increase or decrease vibes but, like mentioned, changing patterns is just as difficult. If you think you will use the patterns, especially, I'd rethink it.

I have Uma, and have no trouble with the buttons. They're much easier to press than Mimi's buttons are.

I am in love with my Uma and yes, the buttons are a pain! the first time I used it, my fingers were a little bit sore. However, they have started breaking in a bit and I can actually press down on them easier now. I hope the buttons dont discourage you though! It is WONDERFUL

i read another article that indicated the more the buttons get used, the pressure required decreases.

I'd look for other brand if you are not satisfied with the buttons, think there will be potential problems.

I have Mimi and the buttons are no where near as bad as I anticipated. I really don't have an issue with them. Maybe because I was expecting them to be awful. They're not nearly as ergonomic to push as my Lelo toys, but I don't mind them, and for the wonderful rumblies, they are totally worth it!

I was worried about the buttons before getting Uma, but they aren't that bad. The only one that I've had an issue pressing while using it was the one that changes the pattern, even then it wasn't terrible and often I have no problem with that button either.
