Solid phone. Camera is mediocre and if you are looking at the screen in a dark environment you will see a green tint which is annoying. It makes watching Netflix in bed a sad endeavour.
Is there a gcam available for this phone that would help heaps surely?
Yea, but I don't notice much difference (maybe it is just me). I am using GCam 7.3.018 by Urnyx05
Poco camera app is good it has more features than the gcam ports. Quality wise they are similar in some situations. I have a X3 NFC and a mi mix 3 5g and Poco camera app is better than the Xiaomi.
Dxomark seem to be updating there camera test with midrange phones you can find some of these models tested.
I have found the camera to be fine, but i really only use phone cams for quick snaps as i just prefer shooting with a camera. Haven't noticed the green tint though and i bought it at launch?
Same as me, haven't noticed it either. More worried about the 12.5 update which has fixed some bugs but still has some issues like 120hz mode switching back to 60hz etc. Xiaomi can be hit and miss with updates though.
Great phone for the price. Purchased from last Amazon deal and writing from it.
Hey just wondering, when you purchased did you buy amazon gift cards through shopback and then navigate through cashrewards to buy on Amazon? Is that the best way to do it? Or does that not work for cashback? Asking in case another decent deal comes up
I just bought with shopback 7.5% cashback. No gift card
Was this an earlier deal? I don't see a 7.5%. Even the 7% deal says no electronics … (Edit: misread, mobile is included at 4%). Having said that, is it actually possible to stack a 2% off on gift cards then get another 4% off?
@VeeKTOR: Sorry, it was 5% discount or so (not 7.5%). No idea about gift card.
Do you have any issues with using NFC for payments and Google Pay? If that all works, it looks like a good buy
No problem with NFC at all. Google Pay works and also it's syncing with my Ticwatch Pro 3 GPS. Can pay via phone or watch.
One last thing sorry, do you like the speakers? I like playing music on phone sometimes
@HumbleCat: I don't use the speakers much. Just tested it with youtube. Sounds good to me.
@John K: Thanks!
I received mine last weekend, solid phone
Does Google Pay work and all the other stuff like NFC and Google Assistant? Like I get the global version? Sorry its my first time buying a Xiaomi
What’s the uk version ? How is it different to the global version ?
