Our Review

Eskimi is a social networking site where members can chat with friends, meet new people, and possibly meet up in person if things go well between them online.

This online dating platform, which is also available as an app for mobile devices, has a number of special features to make the dating ambient perky and fun.

The site has a fairly decent reputation and keeps its platform strictly for dating only. It bans a number of activities such as advertising, selling, nudity, offensive language, and discrimination of any form among others.

With these, Eskimi can be a great dating site with a general orientation but does it work the way it is expected to?

We have tested the features, checked the price, and the overall services of Eskimi for you. Find out all about it in this review.

Eskimi Profile Quality

eskimi profile
  • Viewing profile is free
  • Uploading and browsing photo albums is free
  • You can upload as many pictures as you like
  • Profiles are detailed
  • There are some suspicious profiles found

    The profile page is detailed enough to know more about a member's basic information, but most of the fun sections are left empty by most people. This can be attributed to signup steps that can easily be skipped.

    The basic information that you can find on a person's profile page includes their username, age, location, some photos, interests, their in-site friends, and the clubs where they belong to.

    There is no search function but the platform will provide you a list of profiles that it thinks will be compatible with you based on the information that you added on the site. Take note that the most important matching factor that Eskimi uses is location, which the site takes from your device's location and the city you indicated during signup.

    Overall, the profiles are good enough because it's free to view them and browse all of the information inside.

    Eskimi App

    eskimi app

    Eskimi Real Life Review

    I am new to online dating so I didn't want a site that is too complicated for me. I asked from friends which one works well in my area. They gave me a long list, but I decided to try Eskimi among others. It went quite well on the site. It's free so I have nothing to complain about. But I haven't met anyone from the site yet so I am not 100 percent sure if this is for me. - Mira, 32, Single Mother

    I like that it's free etc. but I am not sure if this site really works. There are a lot of fake people who send me spammy messages with suspicious links. I do not like it but I can easily block them. I guess you really just get what you pay for. - Sandy, 25, Home Cook

    Design and Usability

    Design-wise, the site sports a great colour combination that is pleasing to the eyes. It also allows members to decorate their own profile with unique backgrounds which are a great addition to the design value.

    However, some of the pages easily crash when you open them. The browser will also tell you that some pages are unsecured and would refuse to open them.

    On the flipside, the buttons work fine and it is user-friendly. It just needs a bit of maintenance when it comes to these problematic pages.

    Editors Conclusion

    Datingscout.com.au Author Chris Pleines
    You can try Eskimi for the fun features, but to devout your entire time in it looking for a partner may not be a good idea. You can use it as a side-app where you can find friends near you and hope for a gem or two. But you will be better off having other options.
