Another cheap Chinese copycat
Only redmi series sells more in Asian region
Otherwise Xiaomi is not a flagship phone maker
Geric.770, 27 May 2018They copy too much of the competition, which is bad.
I hope the Mate 20 will not be like this also.They used to be really good at design. Not sure what happened suddenly. They are according to me one of the best Android OEMs around, definitely better than OnePlus in my opinion.
Current Mi6 owner.
I think in 2025 the 'calling' functionality will be omitted in smartphones so that they could use the space used by antenna bands for something else ..

I am pretty satisfied with my brothers Honor 8 lite its one of the best phones for price
SohailSays, 26 May 2018To all these companies not including 3.5 mm headphone jack- Aaaaaaaaaakkkkkthuuuuu! Best comment of the year.
I thought it was an iPhone X on first sight. Wow, they really copy until this level. No wonder Xiaomi sell it phones in their home ground China, Europe or S.E Asia as the patents laws is not very strict. If XM sold this in USA, 100% confirm will be sued by Apple.
Anonymous, 27 May 2018Dont bother wasting more than $500 on a chinese phone. After the iPHONE X design craze (This includes the notch and the vertical camera setup), it seems like XIAOMI is one of those brands who just lost their originality...

I'm a current Mi6 user and I can definitely say that Xiaomi offers the best bang for the buck among all smartphone manufacturers. This is a fact.
That said. Its updates are the best. You can see the extensive change log they put up and you can test everyone of the changes yourself. After the update. Don't like the update MIUI offers the best roll back option ever. Try it and you'll really appreciate the simplicity.
It's been a year since I bought my Mi6 and it has never overheated or crashed too much or has it failed me. Yes it does have these issues but it is similar to other top tier phones (Pixels, iPhones etc). Also to me Xiaomi's build quality is top notch for the price. And their OS is super delightful to use with massive scope for personalization.
All this said, I will not buy the mi8 just because of that notch which I dislike. I like symmetry and good design. Hope i was able to help clear some questions regarding Xiaomi.

LG V20 from LG is the last one with removable battery and is bootloop free.Offers a lot of things for the price and it's an amazing phone till this day.
LG Superfan, 27 May 2018Because chinese phones offer more for price, Mi8 has features not even S9 hasI'd rather spend 500$ on OnePlus6 as a chinese phone that offers a lot than Mi8.It was the same thing with mi6 and Huawei honor 9 last year,same this year. Xiaomi and Huawei offering nothing for 500$ except flagship chipset that overheats very quickly and tons of problems with the phones afterwards such as bluetooth problems,connectivity,camera problems after updates,tons of updates to slow your phone down or none at all (huawei lol) and average experience for satisfaction.
The first xiaomi phone using notch and its flagship anniversary phone. Wanna see oled, ud screen fingerprint, ip68, stellar stereo speaker and the dual camera result.
No one cares about jack. Two GPS is better than one since well it's two, as two is approximately double than one.

SohailSays, 26 May 2018No. 3.5 mm headphone jack is must.Like people used to say cd player is a must in cars before that cassette was a must now both are gone and people got over it same with 3.5mm jack
Notch + LCD screen + no micro SD card slot + no 3.5mm jack = NOT BUYING
Anonymous, 26 May 2018No removable battery no buy.So the only phone you can upgrade to is V20 which is 2 years old
Anonymous, 26 May 2018No removable battery no buy.You can buy a vintage LG G4, the last smartphone with removable battery, but in 2 years you will not find original genuine removable battery for a future replacement, it will be just some chinese crap cheap copy.
