As many people are reporting having charging problem, mine has no charging issue.
Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 works as expected with any compatible QC charger. I got 3 units myself, 1 traveler charger with QC3.0, 1 traveler charger with QC2.0, and 1 car charger with QC3.0, all add up just around $5 dollar per charger, so much cheaper than other quick charger from other brand (OPPO VOOC, Oneplus Dash Charge, then the overprice Huawei Super Charger), and Qualcomm QC charger are so much easier and common to be found, regardless of charger brand.
On original Android 6.0, quick charge is not notified detected by the phone when QC charger is plugged,but it indeed do perform quick charge. After Android 7.0 updates, the QC charger is notified with a white circle around the thunder symbol indicating Quick Charger detected.
The phone itself is very smooth, Wi-Fi, 4G, calling, using apps and play games, all are very smooth and fast, no issue here. Whenever feeling lag or slow, it is mostly the apps issue itself, particularly Facebook app is the culprit. The camera also affect the lag when I want to view the recently captured picture. Then, a bit lag when viewing content on Micro SD card, but this is expected as I store many picture in the Micro SD card, which take times to load. Otherwise, it is always smooth and fast, apps launching is in milliseconds speed, you must lock those chatting apps to prevent the MIUI close the apps when not use in long time to get instant incoming message and notification. The camera is very good per it's asking price, very good on day light, only become bad on low light. Front camera captured satisfied picture by turning off beautification function.
All in all, this is one of the best extra big screen phone out there, with big battery, adequate processor, beautiful screen, and slim profile. It can be used as mini tablet, with cellular internet and voice call. A true all in one phablet with very affordable price to match. It is not super high end, won't outperform those high end, but affordable and reliable.
