    lol miui 7 already guzzles resources like mad and they seem to be doubling down on it. personally miui is one of the reason why I’ll avoid xiaomi from now on.

      No MIUI will be different dont worry. And why do you hate MIUI it has so many convenience features that normal android doesnt have. Its the main reason I buy Mi.

        It’s not for everyone ( I personally love it) just like iOS and Touchwiz aren;t for everyone. Some love it, some hate it.

        U know your preference is not someone else’s people will always want choices even if u have the best there are people who will want deviation for personal reasons.

      MIUI is the main reason I love Xiaomi. It is very heavy but it is still one of the best UI’s on Android and the level of software support is nearly unmatched.

      I hate the design of the Mi5 but I am still contemplating it because of MIUI.

      • quodvadis
        April 27, 2016

        Good for you. I suggest to think again about Mi5 though considering its very weak construction. Then again do w/e you like.

          If I was going to get one it would be the ceramic Pro model which is much more durable . Most likely I am getting the Zuk Z2.

              “Premium” Oukitel. Any phone with such a brand name cannot even be premium, it literally screams “budget!!!!!!”

            Just curious at which price the ZUK Z2 standard edition with 4g ram and 64gb rom will be sold. It looks amazing in black color, this should have been the design of the MI5. If the standard edition is sold at $350 I will get the Zuk Z2 Pro for sure. A french website did a review of the Meizu Pro 6 and according to them its battery life is very poor and the SOC is not doing very well. Shame that they did not put a 3000mah battery inside. It would have been the phone of the year!

            • balcobomber25
              April 27, 2016

              I have seen several Chinese reviews that say the opposite of the Pro 6.

              I’ve heard Xiaomi Mi 5 is having some issues with regards to its hardware/build quality. So I may have to discount Xiaomi for another two years until the Mi 7 Pro.

              Now its down to the Meizu Pro 6 or ZUK Z2 Pro. I’m just hoping the Snapfish virus which plagued Lenovo PCs and phones two years ago (if my memory serves me right) doesn’t apply to ZUK.

            • balcobomber25
              April 27, 2016

              The only thing I have seen with regards to Mi5 build is bend tests. How often do you bend your phones?

            • balcobomber25
              April 27, 2016

              I’m very wary of posts like those, especially reading the comments there are just as many people saying they have no issues. Most of the issues he talks about are software or service related(although the service he describes is excellent) Many of the software issues will be fixed. Personally I have read enough reviews and know enough people who have it that if it wasn’t so damn ugly I would buy one. The design is the major thing stopping me.

            • Simon

              Well to avoid any misunderstanding, the SOC is not a problem here it works perfectly well and handles everything without any problem. They just said that in terms of intensive usage, the SOC will consume the battery life quickly. You are fast, the review has been made by Frandroid. That being said, for them if it is not Apple, Samsung or Sony they are most of the time delivering biased reviews. You probably know that better than me, personal experience is always the best.

            • balcobomber25
              April 27, 2016

              I’m well aware of them and often take their reviews lightly. I’ll wait for reviews from this site and a few others before deciding either way

              April 27, 2016

              Well one thing is for sure, in low light it gets crushed by the Samsung s7 as suspected and from the videos iv’e seen the video capture is fairly week, refocussing problems everywhere. That said id still take it over the mi5 or the LeEco. The Zuk Z2 is great on paper but i suspect it will be pricey when it drops.

            • balcobomber25
              April 27, 2016

              Zuk Z2 is about $417 they already announced the pricing.

            • Sere83
              April 28, 2016

              I think resellers will be bumping the price like crazy though. Reckon it will cost more than the pro 6 in the end

            • balcobomber25
              April 28, 2016

              Zuk’s are pretty easy to buy close to retail price.

        • Millet Air Purifier
          April 27, 2016

          Just because someone had to bend it in a video to gain clicks doesnt mean its “weak”. Do you bend your phones on a regular basis?

          • quodvadis
            April 27, 2016

            No but I accidentally sat or slept on mine multiple times.

            Also have a redmi note 2 that have its guard around the screen bent due to a 10cm drop on my second day of owning it. My Jiayu G4S has been dropped dozens of times over the course of the years, often from 1 meter height, and its guard is still pristine with no blemish.

            Really, you can keep trying to defend them, maybe because you have stellar experience with them or maybe you work for them, I don’t really care, it won’t change my experience nor opinion about them.

      • Marco Lancaster

        I’m a lover of Stock android versions, but to choose a Skin I would choose Miui, and I like the fact that even on phones that can’t be updated to bigger Android version, they keep delivering updates with their own number of versions and features, something that Google should do.

        • balcobomber25
          April 27, 2016

          Xiaomi is one of the best with keeping their phones updated.

          • Sere83
            April 27, 2016

            lol if you want buggy pointless weekly roms and a very late update to the latest android version that is if you are lucky enough to get it at all.

            • balcobomber25
              April 27, 2016

              Or if you want a stable rom which is constantly updated and don’t really care about just “having the latest Android” for bragging rights. I would much rather get those weekly roms and a late update than have an early update that never gets patched again.

            • quodvadis
              April 27, 2016

              Or if you just want to effin use your phone without worrying about bugs and constant update, go with something else.

              Hint: I have other phone beside Xiaomi made one that hasn’t been updated for a long time; it’s my main phone.

            • balcobomber25
              April 28, 2016

              Every phone has bugs including Nexus phones with their “pure” experience.

            • quodvadis
              April 29, 2016

              ALL softwares have bugs, however there are levels of bugs. I certainly find my daily driver is acceptable enough without constant updates.

              I want to command my phone, not the other way around.

            • balcobomber25
              April 29, 2016

              I find all my Xiaomi devices more than acceptable.

            • quodvadis
              April 29, 2016

              Again. Good for you? I personally do not find the constant updates to be acceptable. Just give me one rock solid ROM and small security updates if needed.

            • balcobomber25
              April 29, 2016

              You don’t find constant updates to be acceptable? Is it just because you clearly don’t like Xiaomi? If your favorite company was offering weekly/monthly updates you wouldn’t want that?

            • quodvadis
              April 29, 2016

              I wouldn’t want that IF my current ROM is already rock stable (which MIUI isn’t in my experience, dunno and don’t care with yours). I need to USE my phone, not my phone NEEDS me to update it.

              You don’t have to agree with me by the way, I’m just posting my opinion in a public forum.

            • balcobomber25
              April 29, 2016

              I don’t know a single rom that is rock stable. Android is an environment that changes every single day and always needs tweaking. Even stock Android needs updating constantly. I am just trying to understand your thought process not get you to agree.

      April 27, 2016

      Agreed. MIUI is an insane resource hog (currently using it on my Mi4c, on which I can clearly tell that the OS chews up the 808 often). Will not buy another Xiaomi again since they don’t offer a stock rom.

      Can’t wait for the day I’m going to sell this piece of shi.t Mi4c off and grab a Nexus probably. Convenience features my azz.

      • balcobomber25
        April 27, 2016

        Kind of weird that someone who clearly loves stock Android would buy a Xiaomi device in the first place.

        • Hirotoku
          April 27, 2016

          My phone was gifted. When I say “will not buy again”, I didn’t mean to imply that this was bought too. I wouldn’t wipe my bottom with this if I would have had a chance to play around with it (if I were making the purchase).

          Even the roms from z-grade Chinese manufacturers (OEMs, iOS skinners) have better performance and constant fluidity (60-fps feel) compared to MIUI.

          • balcobomber25
            April 27, 2016

            If you say so.

          • Oliver Ward
            April 27, 2016

            As somebody who has experienced a z-grade Chinese manufacturer stock rom, i can safely say that i’d take MIUI anyday. If a rom is poorly implemented & optimised, then it’s junk, being stock like can’t change that.

      • Ionut Johnny
        April 29, 2016

        I have the redmi note 3 pro 2 gb and with chrome 6 pages open, whatsapp, messenger, Skype, I still got 800 free gb ram. I don’t see anything heavy, no bugs, no lag, stutters etc. You sure you have the original Miui and not some altered one from the reseller you bought the phone?

    Can’t say I am a fan of this. Looks kinda useless to me and instead may cause more issues than it’s worth. This is coming from a MIUI fan. I love MIUI 7 even though it uses quite a bit of RAM. MIUI 8 so far is looking too colourful and Touch Wiz like for me.
