If you buy Xiaomi, unlock the phone and slam a custom ROM in there, otherwise I wouldn't touch Xiaomi at all.

But, but, with basic knowlege you can disable ads in MIUI, in preloaded, Xiaomi apps. Thats 2 years old news (since MIUI 8), don't tell me you didn't find way for 2 years, or even worse, you're just copy/paste this thing from someone, who didn't know how to disable ad's. To me, Sony have great UI, simple, fast, but not to simple, like 'stock'. Second place goes to MIUI 9, i really like tons of customization, options, and how fast is that heavy customized skin (even on mid range phones, like Note 5 Al..). Samsung Experience in newer Samsung phones is also good (way better than opd Touchwiz, but still, it's based pn same source code). For some reason i don't like to much EMUI, and like i said, stock is best optimized on Pixels, and on that phones work maybe the fastest in Android flagahip segment, but, androidone phones, Xiaomi, Nokia.. On Xiaomi phones, like MiA2, even A2 Lite, works ok without lag, but on Nokia phones like 3, 5, 3.1, 5.1 there is a delay, lag, even in system apps, maybe is something with MediaTek, but thats a Nokia fault.
Anyway, this phone, Note 6 Pro is not bad, have good cameras, design, we can hide notch, good battery, screen, and it's cheap.
GSM team, please release the review of this phone we need to check the full Res pictures ,etc

Stock on 3 Xiaomi phone is optimized, but that... moreThis is the most ridiculous thing I've read today, In no way is MIUI better optimized than Nokia's software, Xiaomi has great hardware for the price, but the software is trash, from the bloated UI to the ads that pop in the settings or system apps, even with a Treble GSI, you still need to wait a month before you're allowed to unlock the bootloader and actually be able to get rid of MIUI. MIUI is the worst Android skin alongside Huawei's EMUI.
Jeffy George , 19 Oct 2018I heard that we cannot change the ringtone of the phone from music library is tht true ??? And... moreYou can change ringtone from music, or just add own tone in ringtones section, it's android, not ios.. :)
It have quick charge (Same as Redmi 5 Plus, Redmi Note 5), no fast charge.
looks like the screen uses PWM. it would be nice if GSMArena could add a section in the next reviews about PWM. for some users it could be a big issue...headache, eyes getting tired quick...
mohsinjc, 19 Oct 2018I disagree, Stock is the best option. You convert your own phone for your own usage.No need for converting, but on most phones Treble is supported, so yes, you can have Samsung, Huaw:i/Honor, Xiaomi, phones with own custom skin(s) Samsung Experience, EMUI, MIUI) and donvert them in 5 minutes to "Stock". But if you have stock, or andeoidone-almost stock, you can't convert them to another rom, if someone does not made (xda developers is best site for that). Even when are there two identical phones for example MiA2\Mi6X, or Mi A2 Lite/ Redmi 6 Pro, on those Xiaomi android one devices you can't put MIUI..

If only this has NFC then this will be perfect for me. The alternative is the Nokia 7.1 but the bootloader is locked :( Decisions decisions which shall I get
Mira, 19 Oct 2018Does it have flash at selfie camera?It says on the page with the section called "Selfie Camera"

Kerbau Giler, 18 Oct 2018Stock Android is the best and its suits the high end, good quality and expensive phones like ... moreStock on Nokia phones sucks, its not optimized. Stock on 3 Xiaomi phone is optimized, but thats all, still, stock is for someone who just want text and calls. And about X4 expensive series of phones (Pixels), well, stock is fluid, maybe the fastest eith in flagship levels, but then again, its to simplified. And thats why my dear friend, sold phones with some custom ui/skin, Android phones is about 800 mil, and phones with stock (inc i "android one" smartphones) is 20-25 mil.. Just saying, its not for everybody, like you know stock, and androidone is also on cheaper phones, than mighty Pixels, esp 3XL. Eo you know any smartphone with biger notch? Its almost on half screen.. ;)
And abou MIUI, well MIUI 10 have worst battery for 5% than MIUI 9, but if you want better battery life, just stay on 9, and wait little more to Xiqomi optimize 10. Simple as that. Bugs? If you don't make hard reset after big update, there is a chance for bugs, but Xiaomi, like any other OEMs, does not to magic, You (user) need to make manualy. To be honest if someone wants stock, but still better, more customized (at least to have choice of removing search bar, without changing launcher), Sony have good one UI. Only problem is, Sony dont have new smartphones in mid segment at all..
