I used it two years as now it is 10/2021. it becomes slower and slower. I cleaned up photos not many hold, yet when I press photo there is a few second before it goes in camera mode.
face recognition not always work, or I'm not sure when it will force me to enter passwd.
It stuck 2-3 times I need to use combi key to reset it. Other than that, this phone is good enough as it is cheaper, new one costs me about $115 on Amazon. Compared with Korea phones Xiaomi are much better.

      JW, 06 Jun 2021whatever said by others. I am using this phone over 02 year... moreI've also been using this phone for 1.7 years..I haven't faced a single problem..and also after the miui 12.5 update it feels as good as new.It's a budget device so If you handle it carefully it will surely give you a good service..tip: always try to keep internal storage as empty as possible this way your phone will surely stay as fast as new specially its true in budget friendly devices like this one..my phones internal storage is still 11GB empty

        It's working well. Almost the best budget phone i've ever had.

              its a pity the phone doesn't support google playstore anymore after few updates and other google related apps like youtube and maps otherwise the perfomance is fine for a budget phone like this. the camera is good especially the front selfie camera.

                    Anonymous, 26 Jun 2021is this water prof? No, its have Water-repellent coating which means small water drops would be fine and on that phone would survive but with all water undergoing it will not survive.

                          Anonymous, 17 May 2021Worst phone I've ever bought. I bought this phone for ... morethe main problem of your phone being laggy is MIUI 12 the phone is not that powerful to handle this heavy operating system.

                            I have been using this phone for like a year and it already have a lot of problems. I came here to comment about this because I am in the situation where I feel fully frustrated. I am currently facing a problem with the android, it happens multiple times. I suppose it shouldn't wreck like this but the fact that the reboot system doesn't reboots to it's normal state is very frustrating. I am not sure with what happened to current device, it's devastating to face this repeatedly. Though I clicked reboot many times, It still doesn't work. I don't know what happens, but hey. This ruins my whole mood. I am still trying to reboot this thing but it still won't budge. Please, MIU system is a disaster. I have to mention it, the first time I've used it is alright but as time goes by, I am not sure with what happens to the music app that is created in the phone. It just keeps on stopping on it's own as if there's a ghost trolling around. It's never peaceful to listen to music these days, even though I used Spotify to avoid this problem. Moreover, it often quits the applications that I use over and over. I wonder why does that happens. Hence, regarding the music application on this phone. I think it is completely wrecked because it use to not have any advertisement, but now it does, I feel like Im in the world of Youtube of entertainment instead of Music of blessing.

                              whatever said by others. I am using this phone over 02 years with zero errors. Compare to Huwaei & Samsung budget phones this is BEST budget phone. I am online more than 12 rs daily without any issue. Only problem sometime transferring medias through bluetooth to other phones failling. I will give 4.5 stars our of 5

                                Worst phone I've ever bought. I bought this phone for my mom. At that time it looked like a very good deal and I had been using a Redmi Note 5 for almost 2 years. After a couple of months of moderate use this phone has become extremely laggy. There are lots of ads on my phone and it seems to get worse after each update.
                                DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. Save your 100 bucks and get something else instead.

                                  Mobiles have one basic function. To RING when a call comes in and have a very visible notification when you miss a call. This mobile rings whenever and might even notify you when you receive an email. Might is the keyword here. Very disappointed and would not recommend it at all.

                                    The most unreliable device out there by far. If you want a phone to just talk and play old games on, this is the phone for you. It literally has no other uses, steer clear of this phone
