If you like smaller phones, Meizu 15 is worth a look. It's even smaller and lighter than Mi 8 SE, has a Samsing sAMOLED with 16:9 ratio, and OIS on main camera.

About Mi8SE, that phone does not exist in Global version at all, does not have band 20 (because, no gkobal ver), and have hugee notch. Then again, there is a good processor (better than 660), Amoled screen, and phone (for today standards) is compact, but like i said it's for Chinese market only, since half last year. There is no, even global rom for that phone (if you dont count xiaomi.eu ROM)..
Maybe SE2 will be global
I must be honest, the 48MP samples from this phone isn't as good as Honor View 20. The latter performs much better at that resolution.
But then, the Redmi Note 7 Pro would use the same Sony camera as the one in the Honor View 20, so that might make a difference.
Redmi note 6 pro has support for lte band 28 (700mhz) wonder why note 7 with higher SD660 does not support it?

If you want a phone with a good Samsung super AMOLED screen under $300, get a Xiaomi (Mi 8 SE), Meizu (15, 16X) or ZTE (Axon 7s with 1440p AMOLED).
pat, 13 Feb 2019Can u share your views on
1 - How bad is the screen bleed ?
2 - Are ads still showing up ?... more1 - I cannot find bleeding issue on the screen. Maybe some people have defected phones.
2 - Comparing to previous ones, it was way better. If you wanted to get ad-free ones, maybe you can wait for international version. Chinese versions usually have more ads.
3 - The phone warmed up in the middle of playing PubG, but the temperature is acceptable to me. I also had the phone with TPU case on, so it should be cooler with no case.
4 - Music quality is meh but average at this price point IMO.
PS The camera potential is very good IMO, it is able to install Google camera directly, without any rooting. I used Google camera for shots and Stock camera for Video. The only things missing may be 960fps slow motion and 4K.

I have just got a Redmi Note 7, the stock camera is great but not good enough to me. So I used Google camera apk and the result was even better. I will not say it can beat flagship camera, but the shots (no matter in day, night or extremely low light) are very pleasing. Yet the ones from Stock camera are already very good. Pixel-binning seems to be an important technological innovation for phone cameras.

I think for this price, camera is usable, even with Note 7, does not matter 12 or 48mp.
But audio quality from camera seems worske than for example from Note 5 AI.. also autofocus seems slower. At least we know, where is made compromise, to get this (low) price.
my asus zenfone 5 lite (Q) can took 49mp photo too, using super resolution mode on camera setting, though still run nougat

the same reason review finds 48m not preferable and even recommends sticking to 12mp
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2019Half of j series uses plsJ1 (2016), J2 (2018), J3 (2016), J4 (2018), J5 (2017), J6 (2018), J7 (2016), J7 (2017) etc use Super Amoled..
If you think for J4 Plus or somerhing like that, with SD425 inside.. not worth it the price, even for such a cheap device. Sorry.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2019Nope samsung's pls is the worst I have one and it has bleedingWell, Samsung was not use that type of screen, for years. J series was with SAmoled, A series also. So.. what Samsung low end phone you have with PLS type of screen? On series, Grand Prime from 2014?
Or, one of those newest Samsung phones from low end M 10, 20? :]
Anyway i bot saying that Samsung PLS screen is aweaome (because, is not) that medal goes to Super Amoled, especially on this S9 (last year flagship).
Im saying that M20 have better screen, better colors, more satured, than screen from some Redmi models frim past year.
On the other hand, M series (M10, M20) is plastic-fantastic phones, and have 17-th month Android version out of box..
Gary, 08 Feb 2019It certainly would be nice if they put in better screens. I think it's unlikely because Honor ... moreTo be honest, Samsung TFT (read PLS) screens is better than those in Redmi series (Redmi 5, 5 Plus, Note 5..).
But even better screens from Samsung is Super Amoled, and that screen tehnology will be in M30.
About Oppo, dont know, here it does not exist (maybr just Nex series).
I hope that Xiaomi will start to use better screens, with better colors, without screen bleeding. If they do that and increase price by 20%, it will be fair.
