I think this Helio X20/X25 soc are probably the first MTK chipset on pair with Snapdragon chipsets. I have 2 phones running SD 625 and this one running MTK H X20 and there is huge difference in speed. Helio X20 is much faster and responsive compering to SD625.
X20 is also more power thirsty but still, with 4000mAt battery it lasts a whole day +some more.
SD625 is like VW Golf diesel that is not always super fast but can very easily last for 2 days with same battery.
I wander why Xiaomi stop using SD 650 (RN3 pro/plus) coz they were really good compromise between performance and battery life,
Or why is there no SD 630/660 chipsets in any of these phones.
annas, 18 Dec 2017may i know wher you get it?? u better forget about warranty and go for CyanogenMod then u can make it even 'Oreo' might be..
Low chip like mediatek p10 powered Xperia xa got nougat..bt this x20 is almost 50% higher than p10. So Xiaomi's fault here. I always think mediatek is best in mid or low budget and snapdragon in high budget. Only xiaomi provides good sd powered phn under economic budget bt they are not sd 810 they are budget chip like 625 or something more. My brother using rn3 pro shows 22k+ score on antutu cpu benchmark and my phn shows 26k+..bt rn3 pro got nougat because of having good relationship between xiaomi and snapdragon..If I don't mistake.
guyz no nougat on end of this phone dont dream about new android version,that is fkin mediatek,the bad company
AnonD-719331, 09 Dec 2017did u rooted ur phn? how u using developer rom?Yeah..I did. You will never get nougat on stable or developer because has no good deal with mediatek.. stable rom is boring to me so I did flash developer and enjoying very much.
We neeedd nougat and miui 9 global stable on this phone.Why mediatek is poor with updates.I mean if rn4 with snap get, we want also,cause we paid the same price.
I am using this phn with miui 9 7.12.1 developer rom. It's continue to get update from MI weekly. Rear camera is not pretty good but selfy camera is fairly good under daylight. Phn performance is very smooth except too hot and the deca core has a huge benefit of multitasking with extented battery life but battery is not very good during normal activities. Oh...the screen quality is amazing and great vr experience. In my one year and more experience it's just so far so good. I like this exceptional performance from this mediatek chipset.
tiptop, 23 Nov 2017How to flash with locked bootloader? Thank you!Any Xiaomi phone with locked bootloader can be flashed using xiaomi deep flash cable... you can buy one or just make it yourself . . . take any comon micro usb cable.. make a cut on prtective layer.. youl see four cables inside... just join green and black cables... thats the super-cable LoL .. this work mainly with snapdragon powered phones.. procedure.. turn off you phone... connect that cable to phone.. then connect to PC .. PC will recorgnize it as some qcomm device ... connect it for about 9 seconds then disconnect and use normal cable.. Before doing all that you need to disable the windows drivers cheking system .. to allow unsigned drivers to be instaled.. then install those drivers.. then do the cable procedure... best regards
