When reading a user review for a phone you're eyeing, it's often easy to put down any negative points raised as flukes or customer misuse. After all, the phone looks great on paper, and even greater to your wallet, but speaking as someone who repairs phones, who knows what they should and should NOT do, I've come to the conclusion that this phone is a big fat disappointment.
The MIUI is a half-baked poor skin of Android, sure it has a couple useful features, but it also frequently crashes and is incredibly laggy. It's only really usable on a fresh install whilst clearing the RAM every 5 minutes.
Speaking of clearing the RAM, this phone's so slow that it actually lags, sometimes by as much as 7 seconds when I hold down the home button for the task manager. Unlike normal android, the task manager is app icons only, you do not get thumbnails of the application's current activities, which I think should help make it snappier by cutting out the pretty pictures, but it doesn't.
RAM needs to be cleared constantly, I had the browser open and music playing and the phone reported a mere 56MB of RAM available. I didn't even have that many tabs. The poor RAM management was not fixed by updates from Xiaomi and continues to be a problem, so much so that it causes system instability multiple times daily.
Somehow they managed to make a Snapdragon 400 phone run worse than the HTC Wildfire, to which at least the HTC Wildfire, an aged, single core 0.5GHz disaster was usable, and the same can't be said for this phone.
The application instability is unbearable, updates to apps and to the phone itself have not fixed several key problems, like how every time I try to navigate with Google Maps, the app crashes instantly. The only app that hasn't crashed yet is the Calculator, even system utilities like the Settings page have crashed multiple times.
The phone's battery calibration is also dreadful, with the OS reporting an alleged 20% drop in 40 seconds of being turned on. I charge the phone every day, sometimes twice and yet I use it sparingly, mostly as an MP3 player, to which even that function has crashed many times.
The only saving grace for this abomination is the camera, since having this phone 3 months ago the touchscreen no longer works properly, reception is spotty whilst my backup phone has a strong signal, and sometimes this phone has even failed to charge.
Yes, you heard right, this phone refused to charge for 3 days, and not just once either. Worse yet, one time I plugged in the charger when the phone was off, and it tried to turn on, but then would shut down immediately, turn back on, and repeat this infinitely until I took the battery out and inserted it simultaneously with the charger cable.
Speaking of the charger cable, it fell apart, so that was another thing to replace. In fact even the charger fell apart, the casing came off the Xiaomi brand charger, and when trying to unplug it at night, unable to see what I was doing, I touched the exposed circuitry of the charger. 240V ran through my hand because of their shoddy craftsmanship.
This phone is unbelievably poor. Though I'm not biased and I will say that the camera is excellent, also the Xiaomi Piston 2 earphones are hard-wearing and sound fantastic.
So yeah, to summarise, perhaps find a different phone, personally I recommend the Xperia ZR, available online for a similar price, yet from a global trusted brand with international support, twice the RAM, a better camera and a faster processor, all in a slightly smaller waterproof package.
However, if you're looking for Xiaomi tech, get the Piston 2 earphones and nothing else. Even the standard Youth earphones are terrible, I gave them still in the packaging to my housemate, and as he put them in his ears the drivers came apart from their solder pads, they literally split in two.
I hoped my phone was a dud, but I found people with similar problems. And having a Chinese-brand phone in England certainly hasn't helped with the returns process. Please people, stay away. Xperia ZR, Meizu M1 Note, Cubot S222, Any of these will do better job.
