Xiaomi is the best

just wait a little bit more till it brings up with a buggy update and youll realize what im talking about. if u are just using social apps and taking calls then would be fine. but if ur an advanced user ur in a mess. They wont fix it for months

But Hardware is Xiaomi miles away better.

hardware is nothing without proper software. no matter how much the hardware is awesome if the software cant utilize the resources properly. example look at apple. low hardware specs than android still no lags. why? software utilization. these xiaomi guys were awesome last year but I guess there business model has been changed recently. releasing new models every month and not fixing the old mobiles. this latest miui 10.3.1 is a big mess and i almost wiated for months nw and theres a no sign of getting fixed. terrible

lol.....🏃😂😂😂😂 they've abandoned redmi y1, still stuck on Android 7.
if you can afford any brand, go ahead. but I love Miui, why not go for redmi note 7 😉

is there any reason for me to buy a new product from xiaomi? dude this note 5 global is just hit 1 year.  since the day I bought this only few months ran without many major problems. advertised as AI and no AI at all. coupled with a depth sensor which is completely useless. and with the latest update every single thing is broken. camera = hve to use gcam now. gps is so inaccurate. shows me couple of blocks away. wifi is disconnecting continously. have to connect manually. battery drain. cant withstand a day. no aac for bluetooth. no bluetooth device unlock. hotspot issues. bootloop etc etc ....its almost a month now and they dont give a f*** to fix it. And ur saying to buy a new from these guys? hahahaha... i cn list down so many issues with this mobile right now. tried factory resetting and every possible thing ive to do. had to use gcam . a new kernal to stop battery draining issue. why would we wanna mobile to spend time researching to use other sh****.... u will feel the pain when it happens to u. until then the answers will be fabulous.

software **s. true. but you can keep the phone and replace the software. the new xperia 1 is pretty good. when it comes to updates, either google pixel phones or one plus phones. if u wanna try something of similar price, then asus zenphone 6.

still its a big headache man. another extra struggle to find the best rom and have to use patches for missing features etc etc. But will be better than this broken rom though. ha ha. Cant keep messing and waste the time for a mobile phone man thats the problem. ive already spent more than enough since the day I bought this. even in the poll people suggest pixel and oneplusone.... id go for one of them. if i didnt get any update within few days ill be done with xiaomi forever. Did a big mistake by buying Xiaomi. They used to be awesome but now theyve just changed and dont give a f*** about old devices. Keep releasing new models without fixing our mobiles

read properly - i don't play games because i think its for 12 year old children .... and the issues you experience are because of the model you purchased because you want to consider yourself a power user but were too cheap to buy a proper phone

then stop judging before knowing what the other one does. itsnt a bad phone. I mean according to hardware specs ... what do you mean by power user? this is more than enough to deploy apps as an emulator ...tbh this equipped with a mid ranged processer which is capable of handling day to days tasks including games even though I dont play. most people dont even use maps, connectivity apps or other features. only they does is taking some selfies and post on social medias , making calls and texts. those are very basic needs. But there are some other people who use other things sensors and things as well.

look guy - i had a Note 4 ..... that did everything i wanted and did it perfectly well ..... it is still doing all those things perfectly well for the person who bought it from me when i upgraded ..... if i did not upgrade i would still have been happy with it

I now have a Poco F1 and it also does everything i want including all those things that you mentioned that are going wrong and it does them flawlessly so i see no issues with the brand ..... what i do have a problem with is that you buy a low level phone and then claim that you are a power user, as if your purchasing the phone is the only thing keeping Xiaomi afloat and in business

im feeling sorry about your technical knowledge on hardware specs. before bark here and there go and read about the difference between low budget and mid ranged. please explain what youre doing with ur sd845 in poco f1? what are you doing with that cpu power? for my usage sd636 is more than enough. it got the enough processing power to work as m emulator and other stuffs. advanced users may vary. im talking about my model which i have. imnt using this to just take some photos and call nd sms. These hardware specs are more than enough to do most of the things except for gaming. read well. study more about specs and capabilities before you talk. Youve no idea about software issues and things thats y u bark like this. this was doing fine until the miui 10.3.1 stable update. only few bugs were there which could be ignore. its upto me whom to decide not u. I just simply expected this mobile to do the day to day tasks. so which means gps inaccuracy , battery draining issues , full screen gesture errors , dual pdaf and depth sensor failure is on me? lol dude. And yes many people happy about there mobiles because most of them only does is taking a call , type a text and use social media apps and capture a pic.

look at the end of the day you just seem determined to blame your phone ...... so maybe better for you if you go spend your money on some other brand - maybe stick to Samsung or to Huawei ..... who cares but since you are so negative about this brand i doubt that even a Mi9 will keep you happy since you are such an "advanced" user

EDIT : just went and voted in your poll ....... hopefully you find a brand that suits you better ...... maybe the quicker the better

I asked the question to get an opinion and thats upto me. yes ofc even an Mi9 wont satisfy me if its filled with bugs. hardware is nothing without proper software. go and learn first. learn about the meaning of alpha , beta , stable updates. And try to understand this isnt a complain about a beta rom. this is a stable release which has list of bugs. A mobile advertised as AI . lol... and again ur wrong. according to poll and researches pixel and oneplusone seems to be stable than the brands uve metioned above. I jst need a stable mobile which uses its hardware properly. xiaomi used to be a good manufacturer. for the price you pay ur getting the best hardware.... but theyre just started to mess up all from this year. people who use there mobiles just not to make calls and text will care. And to ensure these issues I dived in the forum. many people have complained not me. if u want go ahead and loom for urself. just dont bark without knowing things properly.

you are the one actually barking but sorry guy you are a chihuahua and not a a big dog because you clearly do not know how to use your phone ...... ie a typical idiot who blames his tools when it is his fault mostly

either way i have decided to not bother with you - go and buy whatever you like since you seem to have a clear idea of what is best for your "advanced" usage .... stop bothering the rest of us who use our phones properly and who are able to enjoy them

still barking without a point. lol. u dont have any idea about whats software. lmao. go and study more before u bark again.
