This phone has some advantages over flagships: no notch, dual gps , dc dimming, bigger battery than s10 and iphone xs.
Could you tell me what makes a phone flagship other than useless ip68 and wireless charging?

Remove this from main phones , they will be much cheaper.
Redmi is a low midrange that uses SD8xx series. Nothing more.
It would be same if Samsung puts the cpu of S inside A series.
Except CPU, this phone has no advantage over any 2018 flagship from other brands that now cost less than $550 and offer much more .

( For Example ) If I'm a gamer , I will need a powerful chipset and good battery and I won't care about having good cameras or great looks but my friend isn't a gamer, he/she loves taking photos so he/she will need a phone with great cameras and won't care about having a very capable performance or great looks and other friend doesn't like using cases so he/she wants a phone with glass back to have that premium feeling and not to scratch easily or glossy plastic back to be more duarble and still looking great and he/she won't care so much about cameras or performance as he/she doesn't use his/her phone a lot but wants his/her phone to look nice and elegant.
It's just personal preference.

And I see no problem to cover it - I will mostly look at its display anyways, and I don't really care how it looks for others.
Walter C. Dornez, 29 Jun 2019People are different dude. They don't care about stuff like that, they just want their device ... moreThank you, Cap'n Obvious ;)
If they want their device to look good - then why don't they make it look good themselves?
Yeah, and I don't want the main market to screw us over again - by pushing these flashy backs that are essential parts of the smartphone and its price. Mi 9T here is alright example, unlike e.g. Honor View 20.
Shadocx, 29 Jun 2019Because if you use a case, it will hide the beautiful design of the back of your smartphone. ... more"Again, it might not matter to you." - but why does it matter [at all]? Smartphone is not a clothing, it's not a watch/ring/any accessory - its appearance is not included in the list of its main features. And I don't like smartphones that try to make it so, like Honor View 20 (which has no options without flashy back at all) - because it's unrational; if you want to prettify your smartphone - fine, put a case, a stickers, a vinyl skin (dbrand, etc.), an aerographic painting, whatever, but do it on your own and for your own money.
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2019Never put case on my phones. Current one had many accidents but the glass has never shatteredI put case on my phones mainly for better grip or to have a stand (and to put them on a table not touching screen or camera), little bit of protection is just a bonus.
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2019The main reason I'm considering this phone over the Mi 9 is because of how awesome it looks. I... moreBecause of looks? Not because of cost (especially for SD730 version), better UDFPR, bigger battery or even notch-less screen? That is really a facepalm - choosing a smartphone because of looks in the first place, not because of features.
BTW, "design" and "appearance" are not exactly the same thing.
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2019Yeah, great idea. Just use something that doesn't exist yet. It will exist after some time when the company releases the official kernel source code of the device .
You can also use a third part launcher with icon packs or use themes.
Hands down the best value on the market right now.
Well from a best flagship of the year we cant expect less than awesome, which we all desired, wished for and got .
Maybe its lack bunch of add-ons and features but who apart people living in rainforests needs IP protection???. Despite the fact no IP protection gives you water damage warranty and apart plain unrefined water it wont protects against other liquids especialy salt water.
Who would need a SD card slot if 256GB disk space is more than enough.
Who needs better camera if printed on A4 format or bigger even a best camera phone would looks ugly.
Who needs a wireless charger if the basic one i mean pluged cable in the phone is faster stable and just better.
Who would needs a jack if wireless earphones are great enough and by the way we can buy USB-C to jack converter everywhere.
Who would needs gorrila glass 6 if the GG5 is great enough by the way with screen protector like panzer glass even a GG 3 or lesser is great enough.
There are plenty of features this phone should have but it does not need just because any of feature adds to the final price and in case of this flagship price is all that matters.
If we put all flagship features from all brands and make a single phone it will cost maybe 2500 bucks but: 1. Not many would afford it or buy and 2. 90% of global population use their touch phones for a basic casual stuff like calling, messaging and interenet.
Only the 10% of people use more than 30% of phone features and only a tech geeks will use more than 90% of a phone features.
For the rest this lets say bitten flagship bitten from all features other flagships have is great enough and fullfil anyone needs.
In present world price is what matters most and my customers knows it especialy for a fact that average salary here in Slovakia is around 600 bucks or euros from which half goes to bills.
