User opinions and reviews

Just received the April Security Patch on this guy, and right before it just an optimization update, so it's actually amazing they still care about this phone.

Xiaomi Mi series are on top imo. Especially the Mi 9, Mi 10, Mi 11, Mi 11 Ultra, Xiaomi 14, and the Xiaomi 14 Pro.

I just bought one brand new sealed yesterday for 245 usd with 2 original cases and it's a pretty cool phone, and it's awesome that they still keep it mostly up to date. Mine has Android 13 and the 2024 January Security Patch.
