Interested in Xiaomi phones ? which model to choose? Thanks.
I have the Mi Mix 3.
Not really using it anymore as I've jumped ship, but it's a great phone; I love the full screen display, by way of the awesome slider mechanism.
Speakers are awful, though.
And the phone is widevine L3, which means no HD on Netflix and the like.
The pros outweigh the cons, though.
Phone is beautiful and feels great to hold.
And using it as a fidget device is comes in handy, too.
What's your budget and where are you located? Xiaomi releases different models in different regions.
The general consensus are:
Best flagship: Redmi K20 Pro
Best mid-range: Redmi Note 7
If you prefer stock Android: the newly released Mi A3
I myself have the Mi A1, their first Android One phone. Not my regular driver anymore, but it has great build quality. I have previously used Mi Max, Redmi 2, and Redmi 1S.
Redmi note 7 sounds like the one to go with. In US very limited choice for Xiaomi.
TBH, I wouldn't bother importing a Xiaomi. Not only it will be more expensive than necessary, you'll get no warranty. Plus the mid-range and lower handset probably won't support US LTE bands. Then there's the need to watch for handsets running fake ROMs (basically Chinese models injected with fake ROMs that are usually filled with malware). For US, maybe look at Motorola phones for cheap decent phones. Not as exciting, but at least you'll get some support and warranty.
Thanks. My daily driver is Samsung Note 9. Only using other brand phone for backup. Right now I can get by with Huawei Mate 10 pro.
Keep an eye on the new camera sensors they've developed with Samsung. You may be able to get true DSLR quality later in the year. There's articles over on Android Central about it but I can't link to them here because they're part of several articles running together.
Thanks. I read about it.
I use a Xiaomi Mi 9T/REDMI K20 as daily driver. Excellent phone/value.
Thanks. I am using Mi Max 3 as a backup phone, large screen, battery and good value, almost like mini IPad.
