Anonymous, 21 Feb 2018How does it fare with Mi Note 3? With a little bit extra, I can get a Mi Note 3. Which is ... moreThe Mi Note 3 has the SD660, which is slightly more powerful than the SD636, is much shorter (it has a 16:9 display), has a USB-C port and has a superior camera (by all accounts). Why GSM Arena refuses to review it, despite the frequent requests, is surprising. It's a very under-rated phone.
Glock24, 21 Feb 2018I would like to see a performance comparison against the Redmi Note 3 with SD650. We all know ... moreThey are about the same regarding real usage, CPU A72 to A73 is the same performance & GPU also. In one test A510 will be a bit faster in another one A509. Still in real usage (playing games) S636's A509 will be faster (up to 25%) as it will be able to contain it's peak performance level's (A510 can't for longer than 15~20 minutes). But all in all it's not a game change for comparison A540 is 3x faster & upcoming A630 is 4x faster (but they also throttle down to 70~75% of peak performance).
First time heard the shortcomings of miui from gsmarena. It seems gsmarena views have changed about miui after polls. Before that gsmarena seemed to be a fan of miui.
Everything is good here except design, xiaomi must have their own design, they shouldn't copy iPhone design
itsxad, 21 Feb 2018does it support for google camera ?Switch that around: is there any kind developer willing to port google camera to this device?
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2018Is it better at anything that Redmi Note 3? If you read the review, yes. Even more if you watch some youtube reviews to see it live. Otherwise, just assume no.

Which is a better choise? Since Mi Note 3 has a very capable camera
i wish they did not copy exactly the camera look of the iphone X. it's 2018 Xiaomi be a little creative.
After read this review, I still feel lucky having my Redmi Note 3 Pro.
I would like to see a performance comparison against the Redmi Note 3 with SD650. We all know the Note 4 was lacking in the SoC department. Both CPU and GPU were considerably weaker on the Note 4 (SD625) va Note 5. Is the Note 5's GPU faster than the Note 3's?

Agree with closing statement, MIUI is really good in the old days since android doesnt even have blacklist and extra feature is always nice, but today MIUI actually crippled a lot of basic feature in android it kind of stupid to choose MIUI over stock now.
Camera not bad. EIS recording is better than some flagships. Furthermore, it is not expensive. Good phone.
