Daym that is such a great review. Top my hat off for you guys. I hope GSMArena team can provide more "long-term review" on a mid-range smartphone. Perhaps try pocofone for the next review eh?
Denasur91, 20 Nov 2018It's anyone get the update of Android 9.0 to device?Yes I got it but after update to pie Android 9 device is facing so many issues and mainly heating problem and some times it becomes laggy but it was butter smooth in the first 2 three days and also improved battery backup slightly
Denasur91, 20 Nov 2018It's anyone get the update of Android 9.0 to device?Yes.. updated android 9 pie
I was about to buy that phone but when i physically saw its dim , dull display i instantly changed my mind & Bought VIVO V11 Pro with Amoled display with superfast charging cuz now a days these two things are essential for any phone
I've been looking to get a new phone for a while but for me the biggest negative point is lack of a 3.5 mm jack in A2. So much so that i'm considering to get a Nokia 6.1 plus instead which is similarly priced and comes with SD 636 instead of SD 660 (A2).
Please Do a long term review for poco f1. It has miui10. But on Oreo. Waiting for pie..

Compared to the Mi A1, it's as if Xiaomi designed the Mi A2 to fail...
I have the Pocophone and a Redmi Note 5. I've installed custom Pie ROMs and the Google Camera mod on both. That way, I get phones with a large battery and perfect software.

With OnePlus ditching the RGB notification LED in the OP6T, I think there's only Samsung, Sony and HTC (orange/green only) that include them.
This phone should have RGB (color) LED notification LED instead of white. Not a big deal for some, but a big deal for me and some of us.
No NFC is a plus, one less security flaw to worry about; and nobody uses a phone without a protective case (why would you). So, basically the only issue is the rounded screen - which is, incidentally, why I'm not getting any such phones.
A huge plus is vanilla Android and Xiaomi's prices are unbeatable: they make it a point to limit their profits, purposefully. That's enough for me to only look at Xiaomi devices... Not being greedy is great, but I'm also in favor of not getting ripped off. :)
Ah, come on!
No comparisons to other devices?!?
Especially the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro/AI, Redmi Note 6 Pro, Mi 8 Lite, Mi 8 SE, and the Xiaomi PocoPhone.
People read these long-reviews to know the device intimately/properly, otherwise, anybody can read a Spec Sheet which doesn't give the full picture.
