      I got both China and Europea Version and Roms. The 5g bands are differnt because of the hardware (rom does not change it but it is not a big deal). 100% Google Support out of the box. Including Google Home and everything. On MIUI you can change anything, remove all chinese Apps if you want. Only difference: Taking a call is used by Google-Phone-App on European Rom. While it is the Xiaomi Phone App on China Rom - BUT you can use Google-Phone if you want too. But Xiaomi Phone App is able to record calls (which is illegal in Europe that is why Xiaomi changed to Google Phone App in Europe 2 years ago)

      You can send a request to release Xiaomi phone from guaranty in the Developer Options (takes about 24 hours) then you can easily install any other rom. Without any problems. Xiaomi and Google are strong partners as you know from Google Assistant in Xiaomi Devices so everything is 100% compatible.

      MIUI 14 best ui on actual phones in my optinion, super light, super flexible, super fast. Even faster and longer battery time since the update to MIUI 14.

        LV426, 28 Feb 2023Some people have really dumb opinion like "nobody buy ... moreWell that's just what it is, your opinion. A fact is, and majority of people agree on this too, that Xiaomi isn't at that level where they can charge 1300€ for their phone while in China it's just $900 or something, maybe we can thank the inflation but that's another topic. They do have very promising specs that turns out to be completely different once you start using them daily.
        Enjoy your 13 Pro or wasted cash in my opinion, especially when Xiaomi doesn't care for us international users at all.

          Max, 26 Feb 2023There actually isn't a better phone of the same size f... moreIt can have all the numbers in this world, software is the most important thing on phones and in that area Samsung wins. MIUI still needs a lot work and improvements.

            Anonymous, 27 Feb 2023what way are those better anyway? Software stability, Xiaomi has good paper numbers but it sucks in real life usage.

              Imperator Neubaticus, 02 Mar 2023If your opinion is that it's better than the S23 Ultra... moreYou're insulting someone's entire life because they have an opinion about a phone? You need to take yourself into account. I am only commenting because you sound like a gigantic loser

                Just like the 12S Ultra, the Leica Authentic mode is a champ. It looks way more natural and realistic than the default Leica Vibrant mode. That said, it's about time for Xiaomi to stop putting USB-C 2.0 on their premium flagship phones and start using USB-C 3.1/3.2 with wired video output. Even Vivo no longer use USB-C 2.0 for the Pro and Pro+ X-series phones.

                  Payed 750euros for it.

                  Compared to my old Huawei P20 Lite this S23 is amazing !

                  Superb quality

                    But both (and other flagships) are too expensive and lack headphone jack so none of them are worth getting.

                        Not worth $1300,especially with Miaumiau OS,which is still full of bloatware and buggie as hell.
                        Realistic price would be no more than $1000.

                          Images from main camera are excellent! But not better than images you get Samsung Note series or even Poco X3 GT series from 2 years ago.
                          The UW camera module produces low-quality images. Not worth buying if image quality is your priority.

                          The extreme edge curves eat valuable screen area. Battery life is mediocre.

                                Lulfie, 28 Feb 2023Wish this was true. It's often notIf anyone judges other people based on what phones they use, that person is without a doubt a pathetic loser. Unfortunately, there are many people who still do that, not realising that most people use phones as a device for communication, not as a luxury item.
