Now that they no longer give you a charger, it is officially confirmed that you will be using 3rd party. Unless you can proof to them a charger that belongs to them as using original charger, the warranty can be treated as default voided.

Now can everyone here sees how easily to screw customers?

Almand, 28 Dec 2020Can they tell if we were using a third party charger?It's already announced the Mi 11 will work with any QC 3, QC 4 and QC 4+ chargers that you have. But if you still want a charger, Xiaomi will give you one. Some people here are only fear-mongering.

at least charging brick at no extra cost on request.

I don't buy it because of this stupid strategy...

I will never buy a phone that comes with no charger.
Good luck to these greedy companies that destroy the environment in unimaginable ways and now want to play the environmentally correct card... Give me a break! if you really wanted to save the environment, you would push for sturdier, more durable devices and also provide updates much further than 2 years.
And BTW, I've had more than 30 cellphones now and have never disposed any one of them and it's accessories incorrectly. This has way more to do with the people.
Plus, most of the cellphones I've had I sold with the charger included. The other phones which broke or have been stolen I kept the charger and keep using it.
In fact, in countries with a high rate of mobile phones thefts, you guys are only making their job waaaaay easier.
Seriously, I hope you guys crash out

Wily2020, 27 Dec 2020Guess why? :) because headphone jack is top of that phone, ... moreisnt it better to have an important feature and not have atrocious notch or cutout?

Well, if you have the money to buy a flagship phone, you have enough left over to get a charger for it. The environmental excuse is a load of bull. Hopefully this just translates to flagships and not mid-rangers.

Inviromental reasons okay.. at least cut the price down a little bit when you're going to do that. But knowing companies they would still charge more even with an incomplete unboxing experience for their patrons. Sad gives you the impression that they are just copying Apple

Look at Hauwei, they made good phones at reasonable prices while everyone complained that Apple and Samsung were overpriced, then BANG, they charged the same price for their equivalent device.
One+ was a 'no compromises' sort of company that emphasized on quality phones at good prices.... BANG, now they are churning out all sorts of devices at different price levels, some good and some not so good.

As consumers we are fcuked as we will not stop buying the garbage they are offering.

I'm seriously contemplating not getting another Shamesung due to the removal of essential items (If I have them or not is irrelevant).

"to save environment"
Here I forced to buy multiple cable and charger to find which one that support Xiaomi "Turbo Charge" for my device, because simply checking wattage that charger can deliver doesn't guarantee it will enable Turbo Charge

Wily2020, 27 Dec 2020I see you are in denial https://www.counterpointresearch.co... moreLmao! That's because of the pandemic situation of last year which was started.. There were lock down everywhere.. But before the lockdown the true image is shown.. Loot less than 11 series.. And it's only compared to iPhone 11.. And previous record? Even compared to 6s? What joking site like you.. What is the sells number? From where the got these gimmick numbers! Show some maturity get the proper information than some use less sites like you

This shows the level of copy-cat-ness in them. I wonder why were they not giving a display-notch in their flagships like apple... I mean due to this copy-cat-ness.

Even if you own official you could still use another one. If you damaged it with third party and show them a bill of original charger, they will provide free repair?

You don't seem to get the pic here. When they still continue providing their charger, they can't say you used 3rd party charger and damage the phone.

They expect you to buy their original charger and you show them this proof, then the warranty still intact.

Get it?
