Of course, their affordable flagships are unstoppable.

No joke, but Xiaomi's flagship are not worth their price imo. Their midranges are great but their flagships are never that impressive.

Even some Oppo's flagship have been more interesting, and recently, Vivo too has launched good options, like that Orange flagship they had

Congratuation! As someone working for supply chain company for Xiaomi, really glad to see our biggest partner become No.2(and maybe No.1 in next season/year) in smartphone market

You can't be behind someone and 'neck and neck' with them at the same time'

Well done Xiaomi. Wish you'd make a decent spec compact phone without the flagship price tag.

I actually like the way Xiaomi went last year. I just hope they change up their designs a little (away from Samsung-ish stuff). They had their own style I used to like.

Looking at the market I hope ASUS is next to step up their game. Xiaomi is already established (could be better in europe). Phones today are pretty stale and "flat" at this point. Improving what we already have, not trying to stand out. Xiaomi is still doing some funny stuff, however I believe it's ASUS only atm who are doing something different from what the others do, even if it's only about bringing things back we used to have but forgot we want.

I hope we will see something more interesting this year.

No surprise... They really hit the spot for flagship & midrange ...

Mi 11 series & redmi note 10 really boost the sales ... Plus some of the Poco model ...

Early this year I got poco x3 as temporary replacement for my daily driver .. but til now.. I stuck with this especially after root... Everything feel great ...make me think, why would I spend more on flagships..

MIUI covers up stock Android. Even if you update Android to 12, you won't really see or experience it. MIUI is the layer on top of it.

Xiaomi needs to invent a new brand if they wish to sell 1000+ euro phones in the west like Oppo did with OnePlus.
