    Australian warranty…

    Is this provided by the seller or Xiaomi?

      By seller.

  • +9 votes

    Not sure to be honest. It's the global version so I would expect Xiaomi though good to have a store to assist as well.

    I did chat to them via the website and email and they were responsive and provided good support

    Why would anyone spend a $1,000 on a Xiaomi instead of Apple or Samsung?

      Because they charge double with the similar performance, and xiaomi build quality is on par (if no better) with other brands.

        Unless you took advantage of the current trade in program with Samsung. That has just been a no brainer.

              @Nebos: Yeah I got $800+ for my s10+ for my trade-in.

              Contrary experience: Samsung Australia has been a breeze to deal with - I had to do a screen replacement due to a screen issue and it was sorted within the day. Dropped off the phone at the Sydney Olympic Park facility and they had it ready for me within a couple of hours.

              That said my experience does not discount the poor experience the other folk have had, just my 2c to balance things out.

        •  

          Exactly, can get one of the S21's for literally half of this, and there's zero way anyone can justify paying double for something that's going to tank in depreciation

          •  

            @kille745: Had a terrible experience dealing with Samsung online store re: faulty return of a 49 inch Ultra wide screen monitor. Used their own courier , tracking said it's been delivered to their warehouse, warehouse staff said it's been delivered, customer rep said they can't locate it in the warehouse. 49 inch screen missing. How does that happen ? Took 12 weeks all up to get sorted. Avoid Samsung at all costs. If you do buy Samsung, pray you'll never have to deal with their service centre/agents. Don't believe me, check out other reviews online.
            Edit: sorry, was replying to someone else's comment re: Samsung service above..

        No android pure or close to pure is better. Miui is heavily modified and not polished. Have used mi phones, redmi phones and poco all has same software hickups.

        • +9 votes

          MIUi has come in leaps and bounds over the last 12 months. I am getting security updates every 2 months on my Poco f2 pro. Absolutely no concern over bloat (a few here and there, but so does every other brand include their own). No performance issues or broken bits so I fail to see what's not 'polished'.

          I consider myself a power user, having done the whole rooting, booting and roming scene.

          OS is a personal thing. Just like Windows Vs MacOS be ChromeOS.

          MIUI does what a UI should, it futher enhances and refines the base OS to suit the manufacturer's product.

          I recently sold a mid range Huawei phone that cost me $400 new for $150 after 2 and a half years of using it. Struggled to get more than $200 for my daughter's iPhone 8 at a similar age. Which had better depreciation.

          Samsung has wasted alot of money on UI considering their market cap it's amazing that they are only marginally better than Xiaomi and alike.

          been using Android and Windows phone all my life, Nexus 4, some Xiaomi, s4, s8 and s20 and next one is going to be iPhone, because Samsung UI is absolute crap. and I like what iPhone is doing on privacy front.

          like activates screen in pocket but often safety locks the screen when in dark room thinking its in the pocket, in screen fingerprint sensor is unusable for people in trades with tough and dry skin aso

          my HTC HD2 10 years ago in many ways, had a better UI than samsung S20

          • +1 vote

            @ripprind: Yes I agree, the under screen finger print is terrible even for people not in a trade profession. I still prefer physical finger printer scanner.

            Give Xiaomi 2-3 years before they will give Samsung a good run for their money, but I will assume that the US will put a stop to them before that happens like they did with Huawei.

            Privacy wise, I think we should be more concerned about the apps we use and how they tracks us and spy on us than they OS itself. Eitherway, both iOs and Android are not as secure as they all claim they are.

      Better specs for the money is the usual reason. This phone has a msrp of $1099 whilst the s21 is $1249. This phone has a 888 over 2100 (though its a minor advantage), higher resolution screen (both made by samsung). Better camera hardware (not sure if it takes better pics though). Also has a 30w charger and case included as well.

      I'd imagine that if they did launch the mi 11 lite 5g at $600 ish, it'd be quite impressive.

            @plague69: yea, I suppose it was just a cheap phone (note , $250) and made of cheap aluminium I was in highschool so that was all the money I had, but I would suppose the higher ends have same quality. But you have to keep in mind xiaomi is not making their own os, and features like face ID are amazing. I currently have iphone xs and s10e and xs feels smooth and much like a new phone whereas s10e feels like a 2 year old phone, it stutters, heats up etc. Battery is similar tho.

            @pauly85: There is the copying ideas (ahem, "inspired by"), and the corresponding law suits, media coverage, and deals that rightfully take place, and then there is blatant state backed & protected IP theft. This has been an government backed way of advancing in China for the past 20+ years, it's a fact of life, it's not even a debatable matter. I don't consider myself a China-phobe, i own many Xiaomi products (and other brands), but I also work in the Industry and not blind to the reality of what goes on (and how much/how long we've dismissed its impact). It's been at the heart of advancement for most industries there. My own observations are its only since growing difficulties to cheap labor, increasing limitations & conditions on access to the local market to foreign companies (prior to covid), and of course global politics since covid, it's become a headline broadly socialized topic.

              Apple are shockingly unethical in their practices, and are now hoarding wealth as the most cash rich company in the US.
              Why would I choose to buy a far more expensive phone from them than a Chinese brand?

            @pauly85: Samsung and Apple sued each other for IP theft. But in China market it is different story by Chinese government. Overseas companies cannot sue Chinese local companies for IP theft. The Chinese companies copy everything for free and that is one of the reasons how they can sell their products so cheap. Even Apple cannot sue Chinese companies for IP theft. Google and Facebook were kicked out of China by Chinese government. This is a just piece of iceberg. Chinese government gets more power then more threat to the world. See what happens in the South China sea.
