Abhi, 28 Jun 2018Is your phone rooted ? Any bugs ?Nope mine is Locked bootloader and unrooted... if you cant wait for OTA update you can download ROM .zip file manually and flash it using updater app..
so far no bugs.... now they have added portrait option for front camera(previously we used to click top centre icon for portrait but now open front camera and left slide can enable portrait option)
PictureInPicture mode is working (it is enabled by default)

Yes current tech prevents over charging, but still partial charge & patial discharge is good for battery. Keeping it overnight on charge wont over charge it, but tricking will keep battery temp higher, which is not good.
Its not a rule to go that way, 30-80, 20-90 etc cycle, but better for battery in long run. You are free to follow your cycle.
"A partial discharge reduces stress and prolongs battery life, so does a partial charge. Elevated temperature and high currents also affect cycle life."

adam, 24 Jun 2018Don't get a xiaomi phone if you want to root it.
First the phone comes filled with bloatware ... moreYou can simply use adb shell to uninstall bloatware from unrooted phone too. So its not an issue. I have successfully removed all of bloatware this way, and freed around 300-400mb and some ram too.
(pre requisites: developer mode, usb debugging on; adb driver for device)
open command window & key in commands...
1. adb devices
2. adb shell (use this command to get into shell after your device is listed in above step)
3. then, pm uninstall -k --user 0 packagename
eg pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.miui.klo.bugreport

Do not ... moreNo need to do that. smartPhones now are safe, if it reaches 100% the phone tells the charger to stop sending current and it only trickles which is not harmful. And charging 30 to 90 not really, as long as you don't let it go down the drain and never use it while charging then its battery is good.

I was very excited to use 6gb note 5 pro. Im a mobile gamer and I was using redmi note 4 before and it was too good for gaming. This new redmi note 5 pro with 6gb ram is very bad for gaming and I'm really surprised with the nature of phone towards games. totally it gets hang for few minutes and phone gets heat.
