Anonymous, 28 Feb 2021dude this would have been relevant in 2018 not noware you serious? you really think wireless is the future? it cannot even match the wired connections of headphones, earphones. wireless can't still beat wired in overall quality buddy.
3.5 jack is still relevant, the blueprint just removes out of nowhere. and that blueprint fan company just does it too, just like removing the box.
960, 28 Feb 2021No headphone jack, no buy. dude this would have been relevant in 2018 not now
YUKI93, 28 Feb 2021I won't get that excited about the price tag. Sure that the starting price at around $310... moreThey have GMS. I checked both in the settings. All the snapdragon 800 series Chinese variant Xiaomi phones currently come pre-installed with Google services framework but the snapdragon 700 series phones and Mediatek ones don't (at least the ones I checked) . Basically, it seems that Xiaomi didn't certify their Chinese midrangers with Google to save costs so by allowing users to sideload they were breaking rules
Ayamas, 28 Feb 2021Actually there are many people like me, who doesnt care about camera because we nowdays there ... moreYes, i only use cameras 10 minutes a day. I use selfie cam more for online school. My priority for an phone is :
1. Performance (i do lots of editing and multitasking)
2. Battery life enough to last me a day of 8 hours
3. Charging 100% under 1 hour
4. Screen (comfortable enough at night, bright enough outdoors, sharp enough at 1080p, 60hz is fine, oled and lcd, i don't care)
5. Body not too big
Actually there are many people like me, who doesnt care about camera because we nowdays there are many option to make picture looked good. Just install Gcam or edit your photo in lightroom then settle.
People like me care about value, like SD870 is still reliable with flagship performance, but comes at better price bracket, and we do not buy last year SD865 phone. This people Xiaomi want to target, and it set new trend where last year flagship chipset will become this year midrange-flagship model at a affordable price. This will make second hand SD865 phone price market will drop and Xiaomi sees that coming.
React 2 Gadgets YT, 28 Feb 2021The difference of 888 and 870 isn't huge. In fact, 870 is better. It doesn't heat up... moreTotally agree. I manged to pre-book the pro model but after trying them in a Xiaomi store yesterday I regretted not getting the regular version. There is no significant difference and cameras are more or less on par. Unfortunately though I know i won't be able to buy the regular version as the demand is huge and supply is limited so anyone who didn't manage to pay the deposit in the prebooking has very little chance of getting it for months (apart from paying more through 3rd party resellers) . This always happens when a very good value Xiaomi phone is released (they never have sufficient stock at least in China). Both phones also support GMS as Google Services Framework is pre-installed. Pity the k40 is so limited in supply.
Tigolebitties, 28 Feb 2021All of them have 20mp selfie camera. The 5mp camera is a macro lensTo be exact, it is an telephoto lens used for macro. As the focal length is 50mm
Aierlan, 28 Feb 2021Definitely. It's impossible to buy though. Won't be in stock for probably 3\4 months... moreThe difference of 888 and 870 isn't huge. In fact, 870 is better. It doesn't heat up fast, it doesn't throttle, which means you don't even need cooling system. Mi 11 and Iqoo 7 even with cooling system that great still overheats easily, what about an phone without one? 870 is more stable at performance. Even Vivo phones with 888 stops anything you are doing when the temperature reaches 48°C. The difference between the 64 MP and 48 MP isn't huge. Since you get the same lowlight performance, 12 MP is good enough at binned mode. 8k recording is still available though.
The biggest difference againnn... Is the price. For 1000 yuan less (aka 100 dollars less, you get an better phone but unknown)
Less heat and throttling means longer usability, better sustained performance, better battery life, battery span is longer. What's the point of super high power if the battery ages out first?
YoloBS, 28 Feb 20215mp selfie camera ? are u sure ?I am sure. The 20 MP one is an binned sensor. It should be used in 5 MP in native. But Xiaomi just like other companies, wants to make "Higher Numbers are better" (which is sometimes true). Just go to gcam with any 20 MP Selfie camera Xiaomi phone, and the max resolution is 5 MP, binned is at 5 MP, while unbinned is at 20 MP.
React 2 Gadgets YT, 28 Feb 2021Is Gcam compatible with the ultrawide and tele cam? It is a shame that the Mi 9T is the last F... moreDepends on the phone. Some devices require root. We'll have to see once it releases.

Anonymous, 28 Feb 2021Mi 10 lite zoom has ois and telephoto
K30 pro zoom has ois and telephoto
Mi note 10 has ois ... moreMi 10 lite zoom has OIS on periscope camera only.
Entire Mi 9 line does not have OIS on any camera, which doesn't make them a bad phones.
Sela, 28 Feb 2021why do we need high end chip if the camera`s are worthless.
no tele cam. an 8 mb UWW is even... moreWhat do you expect for the price point? $300 for a snapdragon 870 and $430 for a snapdragon 888? These flagship killer are focusing on the chipset and definitely not for a mobile photographer. At least they finally put some attention to the display and this is an obvious sign this phone mostly are for gaming purpose. (Flagship chipset with a high refresh rate display)
If you want an excellent all-rounder phone, get an iPhone 12 or a proper flagship eg. S21 series, OP 9 series/Oppo find X3 series (soon to be released on march/april) or iPhone 12 pros.
I won't get that excited about the price tag. Sure that the starting price at around $310 look tempting, but it could be just a China-only price. Also, you need to remember Xiaomi's recent statement about sideloading Google Mobile Services (GMS) on China-only models, so the possibility of either variant not having GMS is inevitable.
React 2 Gadgets YT, 28 Feb 2021Redmi K40 is the best out of all. You don't need that super hot 888. The price is right a... moreDefinitely. It's impossible to buy though. Won't be in stock for probably 3\4 months. The k40pro is much easier to buy as the price to performance ratio is really average. The k40 has over 10 times more reservations than the k40proThat basically tells you which one
These K40. The CNY 2000
will surely wreak havoc the mid-range.
All those mid-range with 700 series Snapdragon
All those mid-range with 700,800,1000 series Dimensity
.... All will be crushed.
This is intresting...
and I'm happy as a user.
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2021Nothing can compensate lack of proper telephoto camera for me.the telephoto were reserved for the Mi 11 Ultra
