Anonymous, 06 May 2019Does this phone has ads menace inside in its settings ?!I haven't noticed any, but I did deny a few of the "Recommendations" and tailored ads.

emman coligs, 08 May 2019not all country supports 5g whats the point of having 5g A great velocity to dowload and upload where it can be used!
Spent a while with Mi9, it's all about flashing and hacking. MIUI is horrible and AOSP is buggy. Already thinking of giving up on fingerprint in the front and just switch to S9. Next time also buy a bit older phone. Like 6T which runs without any issue but haven't got QC and QI.
emman coligs, 08 May 2019not all country supports 5g whats the point of having 5g 5G is the future thing, but still not yet kick off.
I still remember the hype for the first 4G smartphone that I bought, that said theoretically can achieve 100Mbit/s download, but in actual, it never achieve that kind of speed.
Overall, it is faster than 3G, but it is just utilizing 2 to 3% of the max 4G speed, which make me wonder those theoretical speed are just fake marketing speed, where it doesn't really materialize in real situation.
But from that point on, we start get smartphone that implement 4G as standard wireless broadband modem, more higher speed 4G modem is released each year, and also available on budget smartphone.
So, just need to wait until 5G become common, also don't get too hyped with the technology, it might not as fast as you can imagine. Availability of 5G also is a problem.
Avamander, 04 May 2019After looking at all the phones available right now this is my opinion about the phone:
B... moreI don't see it's cons being the real cons.
The other missing features are due to cut cost, but even the Oneplus and Huawei flagship are also cutting the Micro SD slot and also 3.5mm jack, so it doesn't really are cons. No 5G also cannot say is cons, this is definitely not a 5G phone.
If you really need to have all these features, pick the Samsung Galaxy S10, and LG G8, but these also not 5G phone, so you better beware of all cons, don't buy any smartphone if it don't have 5G.
Verm, 06 May 2019Wait for Oneplus 7 and Oneplus 7 pro and decide later. Honestly, if you fancy oxygen os go for... moreIt really depends.
For starter, at my region, last year Xiaomi Mi8 and Oneplus 6 are not in the same price range. Oneplus 6 128GB price is already close to Samsung S9 Plus price.
So, it really depend in which region the phone is sold.
At the selling price of Oneplus 6, I would rather get a Samsung S9 Plus and seal the deal.
At Xiaomi Mi8 price, it's direct competitor is ASUS Zenfone 5z. Then at slightly cheaper side on price of 64GB Xiaomi Mi8, can get a 128GB Pocophone F1.
If you are talking about fans of Oxygen OS, then just pick Oneplus 7 without needing to compare the price, it won't come down to the price of Mi9.
Sq, 07 May 2019Really disappointing that there's still no SD card slot. It's a big deal and the battery is a ... moreSince Xiaomi Mi2, then the Xiaomi Mi Note series, there is no Micro SD slot for these flagship model. Oneplus flagship also doesn't has this slot either since the first Oneplus One. Huawei also start ditching the Micro SD, but they offer NM card slot, which is 3 to 4 times more expensive than Micro SD card, not a direct replacement solution either, your old Micro SD card cannot be used.
Battery size is arguable, but only because last year Samsung Note 9 is doing with 4000mah, then you can now say this 3300mah battery is small, if not then this 3300mah is pretty respectable for a flagship phone. Previously on Samsung S9 Plus, and also Note 8 also having small battery like this, why don't you complain on that?
If last year your country has Pocophone F1 and ASUS Zenfone 5z, then get these, which has proper Micro SD slot, and pricing of these is cheaper than Xiaomi Mi8.
Get the right phone instead of complaining this phone don't has this and that, especially when you are complaining at budget flagship, which obviously due to cut cost, they omit these features.
Tim, 07 May 2019Could you pls convince me that I should buy Mi 9 rather than iPhone 8 Plus? Thanks.It’s a no brainer. Mi 9 is better in almost every way apart from iOS if you prefer it. Better battery, camera just as good if not better, faster chip, more ram, won’t give up on your in a year. Order from aliexpress and pay for DHL shipping if you live outside china
Really disappointing that there's still no SD card slot. It's a big deal and the battery is a little small for such a big phone. 3300 or 3400 may is not enough. 64gb storage is again insufficient. I'm not a fan of virtual storage. I have a lot of videos, songs and pictures.i really need a minimum 128gb but with my pocophone F1, I have that plus a 256gb SD card. It's really annoying and completely impossible to understand this decision. I'll wait for the Lenovo Z6 pro to come down. Looks incredible. 4000mah battery and an expansion slot with a very impressive camera and a great amoled screen.
