    A good deal if you want the 5G and cheaper than JB Hifi's $699 offer, but if you don't care for 5G, the older 4G dual sim with a SD845 6gb/128gb is $519.20 > https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Xiaomi-Mi-Mix-3-Dual-Sim-6GB-RAM...

    (I also realised the eBay add for the 128gb model has 64gb in the pictures within the description)

      6.4 inch screen and 1.6 SAR value. Both a bit too much for me.

      MIUI / Xiaomi ROM - Ads (but apparently change the phone to certain region(s) could block that). Some of the ads are not quite at porn level, but getting close. Your better half might not be happy about that (even though you could be innocent in this case). Or, you could trick your better half when watching porn on the phone - it's not you, it is Xiaomi… :-)

      The front camera - you need to push it up manually.

        Mix 3 has Pixel Experience roms, which give it almost the same feel as a Pixel 3 and removes all of that crap that MIUI comes with. Instructions can be found on XDA and the process is not too difficult

        Source: I have this phone and used PE until MIUI 11 came out

          is miui 11 good

            @TarquinOliverNimrod: There's some UI changes, I use Xiaomi.Eu's MIUI 11 rom for the Mix 3, which is Android 10 based. Comes with the app drawer function to finally get rid of that iPhone like set of pages on the home screen for apps

            I've also found that the battery drain on MIUI 11 is also less, but your mileage may vary on this one

              @clintyip: I don't get why some mid range Xiaomi phones get Android One, but flagship level ones don't. MIUI, from past experience, can be all over the place and a bit luck of the draw. Some versions are fine, while others fix some bugs and add some.

              What concerns me is those Mi 9 bugs and issues (on software / ROM side).

              •  

                @netsurfer: Agreed 100%. My first Xiaomi was Redmi Note 3, MIUI was so clunky on that POS that I just stopped using it. Then I got to play with the Mi A1, boy was that slick for a $200 phone.

                MIUI now on their flagships is definitely a huge improvement - the battery saving settings by default are SUPER aggressive though (to the point where my Alarms via the Google Clock app would not go off in the morning until I turned off battery saving for that app specifically)

        •  

          You lose usability though. A lot of apps won't run without frequent updating of safetynet bypasses.

          •  

            @DisabledUser320279: Not sure, but I never ran into SafetyNet issues after just flashing Magisk and using Magisk Hide. I could even get GPay to work after installing 2 modules which took 5 minutes.

            The only issue is that the Mix 3 doesn't have Widevine L1 support, I think the only Xiaomi phone that has it is the Pocofone

        •  

          Not sure what the issue is: run a different launcher. Quite a few good free ones available from the proper Play Store. I run Evie on my Mix 2S. I've also never seen any advertisements on my phone or the wife's 9T. shrug

          •  

            @max payload: You cannot fix notification bugs, video recording glitches, apps crashing (with over-aggressive task killing perhaps - with some older version of MIUI) with a launcher change. Global ROM version is better, but some people still reported issues with certain apps.

            •  

              @netsurfer: Launcher solves the issue of the UI: sorry I overlooked the stability comments as have only had experience with the Global ROM and yet to experience any of the issues listed. Task-killing for power management is customisable at an app level even on MIUI 11. My wife's not a tinkerer (as opposed to me) but is an app installation fiend and just uses her 9T without any adverse issue and would certainly complain if there was one. I find with apps that require a security or power management setting to be changed will prompt for it during installation (or future app launch) with a link to carry out the change.
              Perhaps the point to note is ensure you purchase the Global version (which I suspect a majority of us would be doing for band 28 anyway on most handsets)?

        Really? Been running miui on other Xiaomi phones for 2-3 years now and have never seen an ad!

      •  

        Never liked Xiaomi MIUI.but cannot imagine now it randomly pops up cleavage girls on your screen and force you to use their Xiaomi service. It's all about getting into their ecosystem like Apple

      People either love or hate MIUI. I really dislike it so put pixel experience on my non 5g version. If you like plain android MIUI might be a bit difficult to get used to.

      If you don't like the interface, you can install a different launcher. I don't have a MIUI phone anymore, but it's the small things that I miss. Things like turning the torch off with the power button, showing you upload and download speeds, etc.

      Yes, you can do all that on different roms… but once you flash a rom, certain apps won't run.

      Take Pokemon Go for example. It won't let run on a custom rom without jumping through a few hoops.

        This. Pretty much all my issues with miui were solved by nova launcher. So much easier than installing a new ROM.

      •  

        The UI part is not really an issue for me. It's the overall stability and the need to figure out workarounds to install certain apps or keep those apps running stable being annoying. Also, the minor glitches and instability of certain versions. If you happened to upgrade to a not quite right version, you will need to either wait and "hope" the next update fix most of the glitches or do the ROM rollback. Generally, I tend to get fed up and decided to rollback.

        •  

          Another thing I like about MIUI… you can download the official rom and run it with the updater. It's basically a new install.

          Not ideal for most people, but I like getting that fresh new feeling knowing that I've got no old files clogging up my storage.

    •  

      The menu system of the MiUI is confusing to navigate. However, it does have useful features like Second App and Second Space.

    •  

      Miui has been very responsive on the Redmi Note Pro 4, and the gestures end up making the phone easier to use. Camera has always been a little slow. There are no ads. Overall the value you get is incredible for these phones, just don't drop them..!

    •  

      I run dual boot LOS and MIUI, (xiaomi.eu with Lean launcher), on my Xiaomi and although there's a lot of nice little features that help with usability on MIUI, my phone is almost always booted to LOS for a clean, trustworthy, ROM.

      Xiaomi devices to me, are the perfect platform for custom ROMs. Good hardware with wide dev support for your rom of choice.

      And back on topic…..good deal OP.

    •  

      I just use POCO Launcher so I have the app drawer.

      The phone UI feels just so snappy, so fast. I have Samsung S10 side by side and the S10 just cannot compare.

    I bought mi 9 from them before. They posted it really quickly but the phone was opened and has some fingerprints. Also original charger has been swapped with normal charger that doesn't support fast charging. After complaining they gave me a replacement which has the same issue.
    Now they are telling me this how they received

    With 5G, now china can access your data even faster.!!

    •  

      This is the one thing that scares me about Chinadroids. How much data goes back to China, and does the government really care enough to go through your data? Their prices are so tempting though. Not to mention IR blasters.

      •  

        lol …companies care enough and hide how they track you so yes govt definitely care enough be, it china, US, Aus, UK bla bla… its now far easier for them to do this but you'd only really give a crap if you didnt want them to know what you were doing ;)

  •  

    Howz the camera like, compared to S10+

  •  

    This or Mi 9T Pro?

    I think I'm leaning towards the 9T Pro because this one has a slider design which will get dust under it and make finding a case for it difficult.

      That's one of the problems I have with Xiaomi - I have no idea what their phone line tiers are. Can't see at a glance what's suppose to be their low/medium/high range products.

      •  

        They have too many lines, and some of the more expensive ones have inferior specs to a cheaper one.

        And the Redmi line which is supposed to be budget but good value sometimes outperforms the Mi line which is meant to be premium.

        There's no real consistency.

  •  

    This or huawei mate 20 pro?

    •  

      Im wondering the same. I have a feeling the Huawei is better. Better screen, better cameras?

      •  

        agree, but xiaomi has better CPU and 5G and better price…which one should i choose?

        •  

          umm. As people have mentioned it depends on how much you want 5G. For me personally, the screen and cameras are a better incentive

    •  

      I'm thinking the same. I bought my partner the mate 20 pro and it's honestly amazing. Lightning quick and the screen is orgasmic. Loved my previous xaiomi phone too so hard to choose…
