Vegetaholic, 12 Dec 2017Just buy S9 and you will be fineS9 is going to be a beast.
And tbh if he is short on money, S8 is also a better option than Xiaomi... quality of built and features... not just chip like Xiaomi does.
Also no security breaches and pre installed spyware like with Xiaomi and other Chinese phones...
Far123, 12 Dec 2017Are Xiaomi Mi Phone sofware greater and update faster than samsung?Some parts are. and some are not. there is no definite way to say which skin is better.
I can pretty much conclude SE 8.1 VS MiUi 9.0 though.
SE 8.1 Over MiUi 9.0
Youth inspired appearance, unique gestures, lively appearance.
Costumisable font. (WITH NO NEED for Rooting/APK!)
Ability to hide apps in the app drawer.
impressively ample notification center. (basically the ability to add bars like the samsung connect, quick connect, etc.)
very clean and intuitive camera app.
GORGEOUS music player! (albeit annoying if you have edge display. -_-)
MiUi 9.0 over SE 8.1:
Clean, Easy-to-understand interface.
very informative status bar.
beautifully designed notification panel. (albeit annoying if you want it minimised but not hidden in appearance)
wide (AND I MEAN WIDE) selection of camera modes. skilfully built UI.
Music player is intuitive, gets the job done and does not try to impress in any way. elegant and pure.
All in all scores:
SE 8.1: 8.2/10 Imo.
MiUi 9.0: 8.3/10 Imo.
as you can see the difference is margin one percent.
Kiyasuriin, 12 Dec 2017845 is flagship. and A series of samsung is NEAR flagship. ^^' you cannot use it on A series. ... moreS one might come with 564 built in gb memory version and screen built in fingetprint technology plus over 90% bezeless design. Also rumers off a new sort off 12 minute fast charging that holds the battery power for longer.
Astonishing phone. Will have all the fetures off Apple 8, but no wireless charging no missing headphone jack and includes bezeless screen design at less then 1/2 the price.
Far123, 12 Dec 2017yes but i think samsung A8+ will have OIS + IP68/67 and SD 845 is the same nm but with LPP so ... more845 is flagship. and A series of samsung is NEAR flagship. ^^' you cannot use it on A series. unless you're making the S ones more powerful than A with the same chipset.
Kiyasuriin, 11 Dec 2017it's not as buggy as you may think... there are some hiccups like any rom. but nothing too crazyyes but i think samsung A8+ will have OIS + IP68/67 and SD 845 is the same nm but with LPP so i thought it wont have much upgrade on performance
Far123, 11 Dec 2017well i do like performance but will it worth it in software? i heard xiaomi phone have many bugsJust buy S9 and you will be fine
Finally the return of LED notification light just hope the price around $300 for A8 & $400 for A8+

Bixby was a bad idea from Sammy.Also the fingerprint in galaxy S and note 8.
Well, losing the bixby button is definitely a positive, it would be great to see this carry over to the S9Â’s & Note9, along with a centered and lowered FPS, instead of the idiotic position it now occupies.
Kiyasuriin, 11 Dec 2017you've answered the question already. GO FOR 845!!! unless you're not going for the top notch ... morewell i do like performance but will it worth it in software? i heard xiaomi phone have many bugs
I really don't like most of the midrange Samsung because of the side speaker.
