S9, 03 Feb 2019I wonder, does in China people pay via NFC (for example, Alipay)?
Also, don't know why those ... moreFor payment, they use QR code (Quick Response Code; also called two-dimensional barcode).
NFC can be used only for android devices, but not for iOS devices.
QR code can be used for both devices and is more secure. (QR code has been integrated into iOS.)
QR code is more popular in Asia, while NFC is more popular in North America.
Never_Sm1le, 03 Feb 2019I think it's to properly copy Apple without losing the headphone jackLel no, they should put BIGGER Notch and remove jack altogether, didn't include the dongle and ask $600 if you break the glass back, oh wait XD
Anonymous, 03 Feb 2019Removing ads is free afaik If you absolutely do not want to spare 5 minutes to disable ads,... moreYou seems doesn't understand, I get it. Of course disabling the ads is free, who said it wasn't. But the phone doesn't come in a zero price tag, does it? So why there's so many ads, when one must pay for the phone? Disabling the ads is just denying the reality that it's ad-filled OS. And pay double for alternative? Nah mate, Realme 2 Pro and Zenfone Max Pro M2 is a worthy alternative with pretty much the same spec and price, and yet their phone is not ad-filled, lol.
Suat, 03 Feb 2019 why didn't you include redmi Note 6 as competitorLel no, RN6 is as DoA as it can be, side-grade from RN5 but more expensive, and big notch!!
USB C is great, so are LED notification & Pie,,,but hey where's that Triple Card slot!??!
zillion, 03 Feb 2019Why redmi doesn't put headphone jack hole on the bottom just like redmi note 5? It's more conv... moreWhy ? I prefer it on the top it is better when used while the phone is charged and while the phone is in your pocket so you don't need to put the phone upside down
MobyFreak, 02 Feb 2019How many times did you replace the battery on your note 2?Two times. First time after 2,5 year. I bought some Nohon crap from GB and battery was dead after 5 months? Secont time I bought original Xiaomi battery in EU and it works fine since then (7 months maybe?)
Helbram, 03 Feb 2019This should have an SD670 instead. This is the cheapest sd660 it's a great improve over sd625 so no need to sd 670 if you want a more powerful processor you can wait for redmi note 7 pro with sd 675 and sony imx 586
Anonymous, 03 Feb 2019Sure it's "easy" to turn it off, but why bother to turn it off when it SHOULD NEVER BEEN THERE... moreRemoving ads is free afaik
If you absolutely do not want to spare 5 minutes to disable ads, feel free to pay double for alternatives. You probably have waste more than 5 minutes reading gsmarena comments tho
Why redmi doesn't put headphone jack hole on the bottom just like redmi note 5? It's more convinient than the top. I think frame like mi 8 lite more ergonomic
Anonymous, 02 Feb 2019The targeted customers don't need nfcI wonder, does in China people pay via NFC (for example, Alipay)?
Also, don't know why those Chinese low and mid phones does not have NFC. Even Sony Xperia M, low end phone (from 2013) have NFC.
