      ads ?

        advertisements

        When install an app
        when you run the cleaner
        When you uninstall an app
        When you update system apps etc

        This can be turned off by manually going into each app and turning off 'recommendations'

        It also happens on the lockscreen lol

            That's the reason why Xiaomi can produce cheap phone with great spec. They have huge ad revenues in China because they running a whole ecosystem there. They've everything.
            Samsung TVs got ad too. Even the most expensive ones.
            My Pixel doesn't have any ads in the UI but when you open the chrome, oh boy!

            •  

              @Mi2: I am not getting any ads on my Samsung. Is it only for certain apps ? I have removed most of the samsung stuff including the launcher, may be that's why then.

          Not sure about now, but with older MIUI's you can turn off the ads. But you have to do it for each thing. Change the setting in Cleaner, change the setting in Security, etc.

    •  

      Heya, looking at getting this one for a while. The custom ROM scene is huge, if you want to jump out of MIUI. Quick question - is the camera 'all that'? Do you know how it stacks against an S10 or S20 or iphone in real world usage?
      Obviously won't be as good for the price I just want to know how close it is 😁

      • +4 votes

        honestly with Gcam.. lets say daytime/night photos are probably iphone XR level? sure if you hold steady night mode is really good.. but a steady hand is needed haha

        I'd recommend adaway.org instead. Blokada often breaks important stuff, like miui updates. I got fed up with it.

        •  

          Yeah that's a small problem. But You can white list sites or bypass apps.

    • +9 votes

      I HIGHLY recommend the Xiaomi.eu ROM - it's the regular ROM, stripped of the ads and annoying things.

      There's a little bit of a process getting your phone unlocked, and the initial ROM load (you lose everything on your phone - factory wipe) but it was more stable, better battery (because most of the extra garbage ain't running) and you get updates over-the-air (though it reboots into recovery to install the updates - it's a 2 step process).

      Couldn't be happier (until someone releases Pixel Experience and irons out those bugs).

      •  

        Does it still pass SafetyNet?

        There seems to be a bit of conflicting info out there with some people saying that, once you unlock the Bootloader, SafetyNet fails no matter what. Whereas others indicate differently. The main reason I haven't installed Xiaomi.eu on my Mi9T is that I really need my financial apps to keep working

        • +4 votes

          I unlocked my bootloader, and installed the ROM.

          Safetynet is fine.

          If you root your phone, not so fine, and you need to hide root with Magisk or something. Never did it.

          All my financial apps work - well… I've only tried one. ING.

          Oh, Google Pay is fine too, have a bunch of cards loaded up there.

          That'll do ya.

        Second this.

        Installed the Xiaomi.eu rom on my Poco X3, never looked back.

        I like the MIUI skin so glad to still use it, and no bloat means a smoother experience. Great rom 👍

        •  

          How is the camera? I am pretty happy with my 2.5 year old Huawei camera.

          •  

            @hamwhisperer: It's not bad. Not super amazing but for this price point I can hardly complain.

            Huawei generally have cameras that are leagues above the rest (assuming you have a Mate or P series device), but the X3 still takes great snaps.

            Here's a quick example.

      •  

        Would that still let Google Pay / Myki work? Sometimes custom roms make the NFC turn off for banks and stuff?

        •  

          If you're rooted then yes.

          I don't think you need to be rooted for ArrowOS/any custom rom. I'm on the Xiaomi.eu custom rom without root and everything works fine, banking apps and all.

          •  

            @mangobango: Awesome thanks. I don't care about root anymore either. I get most of my needs from stock Android.

            •  

              @hamwhisperer: Yep you can still get by very well without root these days!

              Just realised I made a slight error in my original comment, was meant to be if you're not rooted then yes it will work.

              But it seems you understood it anyway :)

      The display curved or not curved? I think it's flat yeah?
      Few things, match the Mate 20 (non pro)

        Google camera

      I have a Mate 20 (non pro) I love the heck out of it.

      Is this thing close?

      I have so many good features, IR Blaster, USB-C, stereo speakers, flat NON CURVED! display, good battery life, nice performance.
      It works as wifi hotspot AND wifi bridge, the stuff it does is endless.

      Can you still Android Replace the launcher? So it's more tailored to your needs?

    Isn't Poco f3 better value for aud 70 more?

    • +1 vote

      Better camera here I think

      •  

        I have the F3.

        I actually wanted this one more (due to the slightly better camera), but it was sold out after the initial launch, and prices went up to $800+!

        The F3 is pretty good, but the battery life on the Note 10 Pro seems better due to the less thirsty CPU.

        Also, the stock software was absolute bollocks at the time of launch, but I'm on the beta versions of the xiaomi.eu ROM, which is just the regular MIUI ROM with the ads and things removed. Very close to stock, but without the annoying things.

        Pretty great.

        Oh, for some reason, the Note 10 Pro has an "official" bootleg Gcam released on it, whilst the F3 still doesn't for some reason…

        Either one would be fine, but you might prefer $70

            @Chridim: Poco x3 pro also has faster storage and a better GPU.

            Basically if you just care about performance, then the x3 pro is about as good as it gets for the money from what I've seen.

            Especially at $268

                @Chridim: I got VoLTE working on both my parents X3 Pros. It doesn't support VoWiFi though.

        •  

          I'm in the same boat, but the x3 Pro is NOT the same price, it's $301 at BG currently (6/128GB), I'm just hoping there's a coupon like last month (7th July) that dramatically dropped the price.

          If you are reading this reps, please make it happen.

  •  

    Supports an external TF card up to 128GB (VFAT) - does anyone know whether this is a hardware of software limitation (aka file system)? I noticed most phones currently only support micro SD no larger than 512 GB and always wondered why they dont support up to 1TB micro SD cards that have been on the market for some time.

    •  

      Gd catch - need to check too bfore buying

    •  

      yes i had wondered about this also for an old tablet that said expandable up to 128gb. I put a 400gb sdxc card that got recognized as 360gb. If the device supports SDXC cards, then 1TB can also be used.

      It's a different phone at a different price point. Both are great value. You get what you pay for. I think this is worth the extra for those who want better camera performance.

    Compare Xiaomi Poco F3 vs. Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro
    https://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=10758&idPhone...

    imo, poco f3 almost wins everythings except battery life (roughly 4%). (even if f3 costs $70 more)

    •  

      Even camera? It's 48mp vs 108mp

      •  

        Forget about the pixel counts with current cameras, it is almost irrelevant. Both cameras are saving 12MP photos after the pixel binning. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra blows both away camera wise (and most other phones) with a 50MP sensor.

        The 10 will be a bit better but it isn't drastically so. Looking at the samples they both look fine.

    •  

      saved me the trouble

      Seems a step down in CPU. I'm on the mi 9t pro too and none of these options step forward enough to be worth it. Wait until you break your phone.

    •  

      Would be a step down in most respects. The f3 will be a step up processor wise and get you the 120hz oled.

    This phone has (had?) terrible issues with proximity sensor (actually, the lack of such a sensor). I bought the 8/128 GB model from the launch deal on Aliexpress, sold it a month after I got the parcel.
    During the call its screen often unblocked itself and I started pressing stuff with my cheek - loudspeaker, hang up, notifications etc. It was so annoying! Also, once it started a Slack group call right in my pocket.
    I hope it's fixed now.
