User opinions and reviews

  • DaLiBoR

The new JoyUI, based on MiUI, ruins the phone - the battery is being drained heavily (e.g.: 10-12% overnight WITHOUT battery saver active and 17% WITH battery saver turned on). Previously (old, clean OS) I only lost up to 4% max...

  • DaLiBoR

Same problems with mine...

  • DaLiBoR

Software issues since the OS upgrade - the battery is being drained in standby.
