I love everything about this phone (Xiaomi Mi8 Lite) and it can be a strong contender to high end flagship phones out there. There's really only two things I've noticed that can make this the perfect phone and these are issues that could be easily fixed via firmware.|
1. Why are we not able to set custom notification sounds for apps? Yes, some you can actually do it within the app but most apps rely on the Notification settings in MIUI to do this and this feature has been disabled. This is basic Android feature dating back to the beginning that sets it apart from IOS, please put this back in the next firmware.
2. Not sure about anyone else but rely on my Profile App I've purchased to automatic different settings for me phone in different environments. For some reason it won't change the brightness properly, everything else seems to work ok. When the profile is activated, the screen brightness adjust accordingly to the profile app then after a few seconds it goes to the dimest setting, weird. Never had issues with this with my other Android phones, Zenfone/Samsung, just this one for some reason. All permissions are set properly so it's not that.
Other then these two liveable annoying glitches, this is a really good phone tbh.
