Waker, 15 Jan 2022I've had this phone since November 2019. (Premium version).
In terms of specs, the HDR... moreHad it for 3 days when it was still considered new and returned it.
I realized that it was so damn good that I don't really have a use for it.
Now that I do, and I got myself 11T pro, I can safely say I miss the telephoto, the much lower megapixel yet far superior camera and beautiful sand rear look.
I don't really miss the AUX, I don't really care for the punchhole much but I can't go back after using the fine tuned speakers... those alone are worth buying the phone, and that stupid fast 120W charger. Still, if I could, I'd get the K20 pro premium again just for the hell of it!
I've had this phone since November 2019. (Premium version).
In terms of specs, the HDR OLED screen, the 12gb of ram, 512gb of storage and an overclocked CPU are an insane combo.
Speaking of the Oled screen, the Premium version only has Widevine L3, but with xiaomi.eu rom (sadly it stopped being updated since Nov 2021) it gets patched back to L1 so I can watch netflix 1080p HDR.
I absolutely cannot live with a punchole camera or without a headphone jack so this is the perfect phone for me.
I do agree with someone before that said a OIS would be amazing but that's the only thing I'd improve on it.
If you're unsure weather to buy this phone or not, do it. You won't regret it.
I still recommend it to people to buy 2nd hand.
This phone still rocks even in 2022. full screen view is still a top choice for me. no notches, no punch holes.
This phone is absolutely phenomenal, still going strong with MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition. It seems that I will continue using it because K50 will have punch hole front camera... I just can't go back to not having a full screen experience. Pop up camera is the way to go.
So today is my 2nd year of owing this phone. I set it my calendar for no reason and notified me today about it.
All i can say is i made the best decision of buying this phone. It get updates which i totally like, I remember it being upgraded to 12.5.1 version maybe about 2-3 months ago? not sure, But yeah, I get updates. All is still working perfectly. I work in a construction company and i dropped the phone so many times, in sands, concrete etc.. A very good case (nillkin) served well protecting my phone. I consumed around 7-9 screen protectors due to those drops or the thumb scratches i made due to playing so much of mobile legends.
I am recently looking to buy a new phone, I was planning to buy Realme GT 5G but then I noticed that realme has been releasing a lot of phones which i totally don't like. GT GT 5g(march), neo(april), neo flash(June), gt master (july) , gt Explorer master((July), neo 2(September), (neo 2T upcoming). I just checked now the versions and the month released, That's pretty annoying. I realized that there's a possibility that they will not be able to update the phone in the future especially the bug fixes.
I guess i will buy the K40 ultra or the K50(upcoming) based on my experience with my current phone Redmi K20 Pro Premium.
piggy, 30 Jun 2021does anyone have the problem with their motorized front camera in long term use? I want to buy... moreThe Pop-up camera quality is GREAT from this phone, drop a few times and nothing happened, and the camera has an option for accidental falls it will hide automatically if the phone is falling.
My current phone after 1 year of usage (Mostly gaming) is still a BEAST, the pictures are beautiful as well (could use an OIS tho), the speakers are great and the frontal mechanical camera is great but the velocity at with pop-up is kinda slow.
The only downfall is the UFS 2.1 that is getting old with some modern games, aside from that is the BEST mobile Xiaomi/Remi created in 2019.
It got Android 11 with MIUI 12.5 but for GAMERS BEWARE: you cannot access Android Folder DATA and OBB on Android 11 at least from native way.
