Xiaomi phones are alright.
you talking about your phones, or your ladies..?
Ivan has a new toy! Actually, I've had it for around one month, but I forgot to brag!
I've remained faithful to my preference for Chinese makers and this time I got a Xiaomi Mi 5S.
It's their previous generation flagship (now replaced by the Mi 6), featuring Snapdragon 821, 3GB RAM, 64GB storage, 12MP main camera (same sensor as in first generation Google Pixel) etc.
Likes: it's fast, it's the right size for me, with a very beautiful 5.15" 1080p screen which has so far shown me really nice colours and sunlight visibility, it has good battery life (with Quick Charge 3.0), MIUI 9 looks great and is very functional, the main camera is quite decent (especially with Google Camera HDR+, which vastly improves low light photos) and the front one is a big improvement over my last device as well...
Dislikes: cellular signal reception is a bit weaker than on my last device (although so far it hasn't caused me any issues and admittedly this handset has way lower SAP values than the old one), the MIUI 9 / Android 7 ROMs are still essentially in beta (although they are very, very close to production quality) and I wish it had one more gig of RAM, just 'cause; other than that, I only have complaints about cosmetics: there is a black frame around the screen which is a bit thicker than on the render above, the back is gold, because that was the only version I could find locally (fortunately, it's not too yellow or shiny) and the back is a direct copy of that on the iPhone (no idea why they did it, Mi 5 and Mi 6 both have distinct and quite nice looking back side designs).
BTW, it cost me 250€, which is by far the most I've payed for a mobile phone, but so far I'm liking it.
how’s the camera quality mate? @IvanV
I've uploaded a few samples from the main camera here.
The two ugly kitchen photos show the difference that Google's camera app makes at low light. They were done in almost complete dark, the dark one was shot with the default camera app and the other one uses Google's HDR+.
The rest have all been shot with the default camera app.
No people because I'm not sure if my friends would be comfortable with that and no front camera shots for the same reason (I never take selfies, unless someone makes me snap one together). The front camera is not bad, it's a 4MP thingy with a supposedly large sensor for a front facing camera. Exposure is good, colours are sometimes slightly washed out, but natural, there is a lot of smoothing in weaker light (people start looking like dolls, whereas under decent lighting the results are a lot more natural) and dynamic range isn't the greatest (a group of us took some selfies while standing in the shade and the landscape in the background was seriously overexposed, to the point that it was almost completely white on a couple of shots).
I also want to know more about the Xiaomi though I'm comfortable using my Asus Fonepad 7. It works great because its a mobile phone and tablet.
I’m liking the look of the Mi 5X / Mi A1 (same phone, different launcher)
no OIS, but at that price that’s no surprise.
That is a very decent option if you're looking for a phone with a good camera at a reasonable price.
BTW, no OIS here either, but digital stabilization (aka EIS) does a very good job (again, for some reason, the first gen Google Pixel has a very similar main camera and no OIS either).
wasn’t the Pixel when google started charging serious money for their phones?
that thing was damned expensive if memory serves..
Yup, that's the one, it cost $650 at launch, which was the same as iPhone 7. Here are the specs which say EIS (meaning digital), and here's the review, which says "There is no optical image stabilization, but you would rarely feel its absence." Truth be told, all the reviews and DXO Mark say that the Pixel's camera is really good.
I have a Samsung galaxy s8 plus and I think this is the best phone for me and I buy it at very reasonable price on Italian online store vikishop ...
i used iphone few months ago That was good experience but now i want to change smartphone,, Which phone i should buy ??
Im using huawei honor 8 and to be honest its the best smartphone i have ever had and i also got that with discount price so im happy with that. I recommend you that
