snapdragon 888 shaping out to be an utter mediocre incompetent device
J. , 03 Jan 2021People asking for SD 888, wireless charge, QHD+ 120hz screen and a telephoto camera in a -$700... morenope it's not reidicilous, you have been successfully programmed to think $700 phone is cheap, hell no it's not.
1. NO card slot and lnly 128/256GB models (akready have 256+1024GB)
2. NO headphone jack (have that and USB-C)
3. Power-hungry SD888 and 4600mAh battery (already have less poower hungry SoC and 5000mAh)
= NO thanks
Flagship device with mid-range pricing...
If you want to buy midrange fruit or korean device. This Mi 11 is 100000% better.
There is no alternative. S21 -> very expensive crap without sdcard. Oneplus also without sdcard. Huawei best phones but bootloader not unlockable, no root and proprietary.
I'm really thinking of buying the one year old S20 with the two year old camera or even the two year old S10.

As for all the nonsense, I'm on a mi9t pro which was released with android 9 and just about a day ago it was updated to android 11! How about that for your shytee fake news?

J. , 03 Jan 2021A 108 megapixel sensor can do what a telephoto x3 doesYes and no.
A dedicated telephoto sensor has bigger pixels, 1μm or even larger. This helps, when there's less light.
IpsDisplay, 03 Jan 2021It is not worth it so far the snapdragon 888 seems to be a poor chipset

This result is much better than the A13 in i11 Pro Max with 15% throttling, still the phone runs very warm (at one spot) regardless which is uncomfortable for long gaming sessions.
If you check Notebookcheck results for the Kirin, the 3DMark result is around 45-50%, but keep in mind that Huawei does not allow their phones to run too hot unlike other Androids.
I don't get why people are calling the SD888 throttling fake when this has been proven in benchmarks and games.
The only downside is ads in in MIUI, then there's Xiaomi's planned obsolescence of shyting customers with every future updates with deliberate bugs to battery drain & kill them off or alright abandon support for 1 year. A very shady chinese company. Good hardware maybe but terrible horrible software experience. What's hardware when software experience is shytee after paying a lot of money. Never again buy a Xiaomi phone.
