I find MIUI quite approachable, coming from Oxygen.
Tbf though I've used Smart launcher for the last couple of years so there's very little difference seen day to day.

That's because of them that variety is dead, smartphones have tons of undesired features, useful stuff are removed, and manufacturers don't listen to community or customers in general.

Don't worry about the single phone launch. Next they will launch with all of alphabet, then in numbers and then with names and then rebrand it into poco and redmi and when they are bored they will. Go with version called china, india, global. Also dont forget these current statergies. May come up with other alphabet of the regions their launching as well.

Headphone jack and good dac with mqa 192khz decoding would have been great. No need for separate music player then. How much would the implementation would cost for Xiaomi?

The only disappointing part is the lack of any optical zoom whatsoever. Considering the price though, it seems like a good deal.

MIUI isn't everyone's cup of tea though...

Andr, 28 Dec 2020Just use an adapter...Or just leave the 3.5mm Jack as it is and don't use it, it literally do no arms to you, desired by the MAJORITY and is REQUIRED by some.

Having to deal with adapter that have issues and aren't even cross-brands compatible mean you can't watch a movie and charge your phone during a commute, which is a common scenario.

Let's make it clear, there are not a single legitimate reason against the Jack, and there are many for it, unlike a punch hole or curved edges display you can perfectly ignore it, and except pure egocentric thinking, there isn't a single valid reason to push against the Jack, period.

Now, I can't wait for this to be reviewed cause all sounds like killer bean specs.

Andr, 28 Dec 2020Just use an adapter...You've probably asked a million times and suggested this as much and we've explained a million times why an adapter is worse. Please do yourself a favor and stop promoting removal of features that have never hurt you by being on devices and move on with your life

Thank you.

Better device stays the better device.

Premium Quality features won't suddenly appear on the iPhone 12 pro Max because a few more million people bought it over the MI 11.

Those 30 million people would still be stuck with outdated 20W charging and outdated 60hz screen. Also iOS lacks plenty of features that are standard on MIUI (or Android in general)

They actually gave us a free charger! This is what should be, if you have a charger, use that and if you don't, you get one for free.

"Pricing begins at CNY3,999 ($610/€500)"

But will probably cost €750 in Europe. Xiaomi flagships have never been worth buying. Their midrange and budget phones are what makes the company relevant

Now that M1 is out, I'm looking forward to other ARM chips releasing considerably high performance/ efficient chips, this can only get better for consumers now that there's real competition + incentives to release good ARM processors.
