Reason for investment:
Excellent price for a mid-range high-spec phablet. The large screen estate, ample battery life, 4 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage, as well as a rapid enough CPU.
Very good screen, good battery life and very responsive. Some minor issues regarding Chinese menus and getting some apps to work well with MIUI 8. Most issues resolved and I'm happy with both the phablet and MIUI 8.
Second day of use:
Loving the phablet even more know as most issues have been resolved and I have installed all the apps I need/want. Some apps not compatible with this phone (why I don't know), though no major loss at the moment.
Sound quality when taking calls is superb, even when on speaker. For media though the single speaker is not as good as I'd want it, though good enough for the times I've no choice (streaming to media devices and using headphones most of the time).
Very fluid GUI and rapid responses from both apps and games. A tad annoyed at all the fiddling around with the permissions to get everything working as required. Though I believe Xiaomi provide frequent updates to alleviate issues over time (unlike some of the other, larger vendors).
I'm looking forward to working extensively with this phone in future.
P.S. The camera beautify mode thinks I'm 48 and female, despite my beard and otherwise youthful appearance. :-)
1) Heard Wfi has an Issues ?
2) What to do Once Battery goes dead ? Throw away ?
3) Where to Buy in India Online ?
4) How the camera quality at Night time ?

Teletubbie PO, 18 Oct 2016Having problems with notifications? Messages will not arrive until you open the app?Having this problem as well at the moment. Especially on WhatsApp. But Facebook Messenger works fine though. I've got no WiFi problem, it works fine for me. Update: Hasn't charge my phone since yesterday morning, and my battery percentage is at 51% so that's not bad.
