      i0S.-.Never.-.Again, 13 Mar 2021I don't know about you man... But I have extensively u... moreCamera improvements is the only important thing (imo) that separates a good budget phone from the flagships.
      IP68 rating is a gimmick imo, especially when now many budget phones come with IP53 rating which is enough for rainy days or something similar (you don't need to take your phone in the shower with you, lol). Gorilla Glass Victus is another gimmick. I had my Realme 6 (Gorilla Glass 3) without any protection or case for 6 months. Not even a hair scratch on it after that period. But, depends on the people too and how do they take care of their things.
      Nowadays you can find very good charging speeds even in budget phones (example Realme 7 Pro, ok is not 120W, but still 65W is good enough). Not to mention decent quality Oled panels, sometimes with 90-120Hz refresh rates.
      So, as you said, no need to pay 1000+Eur for a flagship just because it gives top of the line camera setup.
      But I get it, people that can afford it, they will always go for the more expensive models.

            beep bop boop, 13 Mar 2021i don't think people would necessarily care about what... moreI don't know about you man... But I have extensively used flagships in the past decade.
            If I am paying flagship money, I want a flagship product.

            This is the reason why I bought OnePlus 8 pro over the Galaxy S20 ultra (Exynos) last year as the Galaxy flagship had compromises and was 1.5 times more expensive.

            People that don't care about camera sensor or ultra fast charging can go and buy budget phones, no need to waste money on a flagship phone.

              i0S.-.Never.-.Again, 13 Mar 2021They could be called quirks if it was a Budget flagship. A... morei don't think people would necessarily care about what sensor or charging speed their phones have (to an extent), battery should be ok, i mean its not like people would go all out with their phones performance 24/7... just my point of view

                beep bop boop, 13 Mar 2021but dont u think these are just quirks?They could be called quirks if it was a Budget flagship.
                A 1000€ device shouldn't have those compromises.

But all versions get ads from the preinstalled apps, for instance when you install something and click Open from the installation screen. It's a joke on any $500+ phone. Xiaomi's camera AI is also particularly poor, so I never turn it on. I like the default launcher the best among the Android skins, a total iOS rip-off, but that's a good thing.

                        i0S.-.Never.-.Again, 13 Mar 2021It's all their in settings menu. Some options are hidd... moreYeah, I figure it out. Watched some guy on YouTube explaining the process.
                        I went on the general settings, that's why the ads still kept showing up on some Xiaomi apps. But you need to enter in each preinstalled app (that you want to use of course), go to that app settings and disabled all this "recommendations" or how they are called.
                        Is kinda strange and useless process. Also, I think my Redmi Note 8 Pro didn't have this issue. For sure my Realme 6 didn't have it. So, maybe only some models have it.
                        PS: I had only global versions, not Chinese ones.

                            AnonD-989007, 13 Mar 2021Serious question. How do I disable advertisements in Glob... moreIt's all their in settings menu. Some options are hidden in Mi security app, theme app, go through each different section of settings app and turn off recommendations.
                            There are plenty of videos on YouTube showing you how to turn off all the ads.
                            No need of debloating. Just disable unwanted apps.

                              AnonD-989007, 13 Mar 2021Serious question. How do I disable advertisements in Glob... moreDebloat it. Xiaomi has this super annoying "prequel" ads which randomly shows up when you are opening an app. This prequel ad, cannot be disabled by any setting available in the phone. Even if you go airplane mode, it would still show up.
                              But you can remove it permanently by debloating the ROM (along with other useless junk like fb service app, and even Chrome .. if you hate it ofc)

                                Serious question.
                                How do I disable advertisements in Global Xiaomi/Poco/Redmi models? I still have my Poco X3 NFC as a secondary big phone and I entered in all the settings, put off everything that I could find related to advertisements, privacy, data collection, etc. And they still pop-up (when I install or uninstall apps or when I use Xiaomi preinstalled apps, for example Mi Music).
                                Especially when I listen to music is really frustrating. I pause the music to talk to somebody when I am outside or something and then when I want to restart the music, I first need to hear some 10-20 seconds of advertisement in my headphones.
                                Is one of the reasons I bought a Google Pixel phone.
                                Strangely, on my past Realme 6 global version (also a Chinese phone), I didn't had any advertisement problems. And I had that phone for 6 months.

                                    beep bop boop, 12 Mar 2021could u explain what the disappointments were?Battery still at 4500mah, last year find X2 pro did not have as good of an battery life as the OnePlus 8 pro. Should have been Atleast 5000mAh.

                                    Main sensor should have been IMX 789 combined with IMX 766 like the upcoming OnePlus 9 Pro. Lack of periscope camera. The 2x optical telephoto camera isn't as good as the one on other phones with Potrait lens.

                                    Lack of Gorilla Glass Victus. Design is too much like iPhone. I hate that ugly gas burner camera array.

                                    I was expecting 120W fast charging as IQOO and Vivo are providing it.
                                    Oppo being the premier company under the BBK family, should have got it.

                                      nak3dsnail, 13 Mar 2021How come Xiaomi didn't skip the number 4 of Blackshark... moreThe letter 4 in China stands for "dead".

                                        CptPower, 12 Mar 2021If they wanna beat competition they must bring more than 60... moreAll they need is a competitor price and more than 6000mAh battery with a gaming hardware feature -or- an incredibly stable OS with superb smoothness.
                                        Both options with an AUX port, stereo speakers and other popular demands.
