I bought a Redmi 6 in January 2019 and now they're two generations ahead, how is this even possible?

Bad Mobile Redmi-8A.
Use external-memory-card and take selfie photo and see the image will display as 90% rotated.
This handset has touch and performance issue which Hang mobile frequently.

Using it for a couple of months, its a good set at a reasonable price in India

It is okey for what it does.

Way too big.

Yeah set your phone to any EU country. In the EU these type of ads are illegal so Xiaomi had to disable these.
The only thing remaining in the EU version is the recommended apps in folders but that's it.

Also, easy way to disable ads is set your region into UK on first startup. It also will prevent REDMI install some bloats ( random app and games) unlike of you set it in any other regions.

Or, if you hate UK for some reason, To remove bloat safely without root/bootloop risk, download xiaomi add tools on github. It's easy, simple program, just need to enable USB debugging (tutorial on YouTube)

MIUI is full of bugs after updates, not user-friendly , very local chinese ! but Samsung & HUAWEI UI are great

Cons sluggish performance and mediocre camera funny.
Would like to see a better device for 100 bucks.
Probbably noone.
No Samsung, Sony, LG, HTC etc for 100 bucks with better performance and performance.
Also no Crapple. Even the old Iphone 4 or 5 in a brand new condition would cost more than 100 and is far worse in every single aspect.
