Looks quality, good battery life and 48MP cameraBut you get a better phone for your money with a huawei p smart 2019, for exampleA bit heavy, scratches easily, fingerprint reader unreliable and UI needs attentionAdditionly, just found out doesn't support WiFi calling in UK with major phone providers

Not impressed
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

My first and last Xiaomi phone.

There are several cons with this phone.

Firstly, the 48Mp camera is not 48Mp. Instead it's a 12Mp camera that upscales to 48Mp.

The software is riddled with ads, not all of which can be disabled.

Xiaomi phones have a their own MUI OS that sits on top of the Android OS. Because of this, it is NOT possible to change the DNS settings manually. This means it can't be used with SmartDNS services that bypass geo restrictions.

Also, unlike other Dual Sims phones I have used, there is NO option to decide which SIM you want to call from when you make a call. One SIM is set as default and to change this you must go into the settings menu. This is a real pain.

The most annoying point is that there is a problem with people calling this phone hearing an echo. People that have called me have told me it very annoying to the point they have ended the call. from what I have read onine, there is no fix for this and Xiaomi don't seem to be interested in solving it.

For all the fancy features of any phone it is a phone at the end of the day and if it can't make a simple call without problems - it isn't worth buying.

I would avoid this phone and from what I know now, all Xiaomi phones.

UPDATE: As of 28/12/2019 the MUI has just been updated to version 11.0.2. This now allows DNS settings to be changed and to select which SIM card you want to dial from when maing the call. Better, so I'll up my rating from 2* to 3*.

Too early to say if the call echo problem has been solved as this was always an intermitent problem.

Terrible battery life.

Lovely phone but absolutely terrible battery life. Needs charging 2 times a day with very little use. Excellent camera and other features by Xiaomi but the battery let's the phone down badly.

Battery life is a joke
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

Got this nearly 2 weeks ago. charged it up, took to work .never used it until lunch time. Battery was at 50%. So switched back to Mi6 and did some searches and reduced the screen light, turned all notifications off then went deeper into the phone to turn all Xiaomi stuff off. Will use again tomorrow if no better will put it down to a duff battery and return to store for an exchange. no point having a phone if it has to be plugged in all the time.
