WhySooSerious, 15 Jul 2022True that!! They're taking away the freedom outta andr... morethey started that file scoping since android 10 iirc. its getting worse whenever android version is progressing. android 12 is least restrictive for me. i couldnt access to file system because of that stupid "SAF" thing. now the built in music app from xiaomi couldnt access the music from the sd card anymore. i dont want 3rd music apps that bombard me with ads.

    DMX, 15 Jul 2022Many people leaving android and moving to iOS, I'm goi... morei am trying my best to move from android to iOS. but i am a bit worried about the repair cost, in case if some components fail.

      DMX, 15 Jul 2022Many people leaving android and moving to iOS, I'm goi... moreTrue that!! They're taking away the freedom outta android what we enjoyed most!! And the skins OEMS slapping on the top of their phones are getting weird and heavier by each android version.
      I might soon move to iPhone after being on Android for almost 9 or more years

        impinas, 15 Jul 2022If people go and buy that frakkin' UGLY device, then I... moreHonestly? it's not THAT bad looking... Yeah. it's a bit of an eyesore. but we saw worse.

          NickValok, 15 Jul 2022Android flagship has many advantages over iPhones in camera... moreVery true. I love android's features but their chipsets is what disappointing me.

            Michy, 15 Jul 2022There are some paradoxical topics: The demand for Apple... moreXiaomi most likely didn't launch the Xiaomi 12s ultra in Europe for business reasons. The Euro has weakened so much against the Chinese rmb that for this to be launched at effectively the same price as the Xiaomi 11 ultra it would need to be at least 150 euro more than the Xiaomi 11 ultra and up to 200 more. This would make it €1350-€1,400. With the current economic climate would they sell enough at that price to make it worthwhile? Probably not. Although Xiaomi has not succeeded in the high end market in China like Huawei did, their sales for flagships there would still be more than they would in Europe or India, their two other major markets. The Xiaomi 13 series is not too far away as well so that could be influencing their decision. The phone is not out of stock at the moment at least in the higher storage variants so they should have enough supply in a month or two if they do want to do a global launch

              Of course, China will export iPhones to Russia.

                Android flagship has many advantages over iPhones in cameras and displays, but their chipsets are more than three years behind Qualcomm and Samsung Foundry due to the slump.
                For those who want to buy flagship smartphones worth more than $900, chipsets are one of the main considerations, and for them, Android flagship may no longer feel attractive.
                In particular, the popularity of Android flagship is rapidly decreasing in China, which has BBK and Xiaomi.

                    not impress

                      There are some paradoxical topics:

                      The demand for Apple devices (US company) in China is increasing and is strong.

                      Instead, Chinese devices from some companies have access to Google services (US company) banned... or as in the case of Xiaomi and its latest 12S Ultra they do not launch it globally due to alleged component problems.

                        iPhone is now more wanted than ever before and this is still just a start. In next two years Apple have good change to be number one even in unit sales, it's propably going to be quite close this year already,

                          If people go and buy that frakkin' UGLY device, then I don't know what to say really, we are doomed as consumers...
