As of 4th of January I am a proud owner of this particular phone.
I am not really a phone guy, so whatever impressions I share will be comparative to my previous Nokia 3.2.
The screen and therefore the phone itself are larger. Almost uncomfortably large. 6.6in are a bit too large. 6 should be perfect. I would forget for the next time, but still…
I have crippled it to 60hz in favour of battery life and boy is it good. It’s day 3 and I still haven’t charged it. I’m still using whatever it had in its battery from the store. That was showing 55%. I am happy to see this battery life potential.
What I want to try, and will update the thread later on is, what is the difference between 60hz and 120hz when it comes to feel, not just battery life.
My guess is the 6gigs of ram are doing their job, cause the old Nokia with 3 GIGs of ram was constantly glitching and slowing down and crashing and causing issues.
This one have not skipped a beat. Massively faster and insanely smoother…
I am yet to test the camera, but I will later on. Honestly the camera is not a factor at all for me.
What is a huge factor for me is sound quality, and I am happy to report, that music just sounds better, even with the stock Xiaomi player app.
It reads all my files, all folders, all songs, everything. It’s great.
I have a tiny issue with it, that it isn’t reading the songs order, but it does play them in proper order. I am not sure what is going on…
I am yet to install some games or whatever since the Nokia didn’t allow me anything, but so far I am super happy with this piece of tech. 230€ flat and it’s all mine…
Now to answer some questions:
Yes, it’s full of bloatware I had to uninstall.
No, I don’t care about certain stuff to install extra OS or whatever extra software, so don’t ask about that.
Yes, it’s full of Xiaomi apps, and yes, I have uninstalled them all.
Yes, it have the awful extruding camera.
Yes, it have the 3,5" Audio Jack and I love it for it.
No, my wallpaper is brushed alumin(i)um, not a sexy squirrel.
