Tim, 07 May 2019Could you pls convince me that I should buy Mi 9 rather than iPhone 8 Plus? Thanks.If you’re going to use your phone for long run 4 to 5 yers go for iPhone.
Fun fact, the phone does have fully working SBAS support, just make sure you're in a supported region.
AnoM, 09 May 2019Obviously is due to cost cutting, and also 5G network is not yet fully ready.Network is ready enough, they could have implemented both if they wanted to without basically any additional cost.

Avamander, 09 May 2019The chipset is capable of both 60GHz WiFi and 5G, why is it absolutely out of question?Obviously is due to cost cutting, and also 5G network is not yet fully ready.
I've been using this phone for a few days and it's really, pretty sure one can't get anything better with the money for quite a while. I don't really miss the lack of SD-card slot and 3.5mm socket. In my opinion it's not worth paying 80Â€ more for just 64GB of storage, one can buy a large SSD with USB 3.0 case and get 8x as much storage which is way more portable.
Worth mentioning Xiaomi has not implemented SBAS or at least those signals never appear.
Anonymous, 07 May 2019Did anyone face restart issue with this phone? Sometimes while using soft case. Seems that caused by accidently long press the power button which is quite sensitive IMHO

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.

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.
