I am a Xiaomi fan but Xiaomi is adopting some really idiotic steps. They are giving away big batteries for cheap Redmi series phones(4000mAh+) and only giving 2800+ for premium Mi series(Mi5,5s,5c). This is really unfair. You're spending more and getting lower battery. Other companies are moving towards 4000+ batteries nowadays to follow Xiaomibut Xiaomi itself is giving lower now. Instead of upgrading to Snapdragon 653 for Redmi Note 4, they downgraded to 625 lol. I know 625 eats less battery but also gives lower performance.
Cpt. Power, 22 Mar 2017Ram is good enough but battery is low. Then you never actualy have Xiaomi device
Momo Simon, 22 Mar 2017I don't think so. Xiaomi always have good batery management, because of poor RAM managementRam is good enough but battery is low.
Cpt. Power, 22 Mar 2017Why only 2860 mAh any game will drain battery to zero in less than 90 mins. I don't think so. Xiaomi always have good batery management, because of poor RAM management

already had review by some youtuber, they bought it from China. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21ax05RzAtw
since it's still using 28nm soc, and the battery is less than 3000, I'm not sure it will last a day. Maybe yes in the first usage, but after some updates in the future, it won't be that much concern of xiaomi to optimize the battery later rather than their new upcoming devices. Also... Surge S1 is the first pinecone soc. Usually fails come with first generation, better wait for Surge S2 to ensure my move to pinecone. Redmi Note 4X or Mi5s is still a better choice now.
It's very good that it's run's on "Android nogut" but it's battery capacity is more lower than other mi phones and NFC facility is not in this.

R31ya, 06 Mar 2017I genuinely curious on the battery efficiency of this Surge SoC.Since this is an in-house chip designed specially and specifically for this device, i think xiaomi's optimisation might give us some decent battery endurance ratings.
M guessing 8+ hours of web browsing and 10+ hours of video playback.
BRYAN FURY, 07 Mar 2017battery life very bad, for a screen of 5,15" at least 3200mah requiredthat's the reason why it has the Xiaomi's Chipset, Surge S1.

R31ya, 06 Mar 2017I genuinely curious on the battery efficiency of this Surge SoC.It's build on top of the 28nm manufactoring proces so it should be pretty ineffecient.
However xiaomi normally chooses big batteries, so they are either very confident in low power consumption or really stupid.
