I bought the phone before the review is out, it has been 22 days since this review announcement and it's still not out? This is getting very long.
I already have this phone, but a review would be great to compare it with other devices.

Also, if Sony were them, they would name it Superior Auto, rather than the bullshitty "AI" word.

I'm expecting it to come at least before Android P becomes the best thing at that time already.
I don't like it to get Oreo only when others are already preparing to jump to P. Better yet there have lots of UI changes, considering how long it took them to give us an upgrade that's not really that big at all.
Ascorth, 21 May 2018Did you know xiaomi gave MIUI update for old 5 years old devices ? And you say no one ? Hahah... moreSo you still can't move on from that 5 year crap you're saying?
I was indeed right, that you're not actually reading my replies.
I already said that it's fine to me already. You don't have to keep on saying the same thing a billion times.
Well, if it's your own way of arguing, I must say, you won at making nonsense comebacks.
Thanks and have a great day too!

Got this phone 5 days ago. the camera is so awesome as i expected. It can compete with the PIxel 2 specially the portrait mode. Wow so wow! Xiaomi Number 1.
Overall i'm very satisfied.

"All I care about is how a $100 cheap Android phone somehow has a more modern version of Android than my $200 Android phone, which is considerably better in almost every possible way."
Cause the 100 device have same or better hardware on it then you 200 that has brand value 300% on them. Same like Nokia X6 that has 250 euro starting point while it has SD636 same as this Redmi Note 5 AI. Yes X6 has better dimensions for it's 5.8 inch screen, but it does not have fm radio support, has a notch and smaller battery. I got my Note 5 AI from AliExpress for 173 euro and it included glass film too. So X6 may have better camera but it has not tested jet or compared with note 5 AI to know is it really better when for X6 shows 16mp + 5mp and for note 5 ai 12mp + 5mp as we know these numbers say nothing for picture quality.
So far i can buy from gearbest only that X6 and the price shows trough kimovil 371 euro 4/32GB and dont have even B20 on it. So add 20% VAT on it too.
I need to pay only 35 euro tax for the redmi note 5 AI i bought and should get it either tomorrow or in 2 days. So wait another month or 2 or even 3 when it comes in my local shops with something 300+ euro price tag on them where i dont need to pay that 20% VAT but this xiaomi is my first phone from that brand and second phone from China i have ordered. And the test version i had was Leagoo Kiicaa Mix that cost me only 92 euro and the build quality on it was good, but have some flaws i didint think it will be difficult to use.

Btw thanks for your small joke lolz, have a nice day

No one else can support their phones for 5 years (if we want to exclude an iPhone or iPad). Is that what you want?
Fine, then now, if you may finally please, I just need 1 OS upgrade for my phone and I'll be good to go. Is it really that hard to have?
And in a discussion where we're talking about software updates, you suddenly brought the processor of the phone outta nowhere.
As if I care for that!
All I care about is how a $100 cheap Android phone somehow has a more modern version of Android than my $200 Android phone, which is considerably better in almost every possible way.
Do I need to go back to school?
Oh, that's funny, 'cause I just went there a while ago to help clean our school for our upcoming semester this year. I also participated in most of our school activities, which is considered a help in our community.
And in this case, I can conclude that I have a life.
