Why is a vacuum cleaner uploading 1.8GB of data per week? What is going on here?
This is the specific product: Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner Robot With Precise Distance Sensor System Powerful Suction LDS Path Planning 5200mAh Battery for Hard-Floor N Low Thin Carpet
If the gallery means this page: https://www.android.com/enterprise/device-catalog/
...then nah. It just lists every android device by every manufacturer, from Samsung to every cheapo no-name brand that no-one has ever heard about.
Looks like you forgot to add the link :p
"With Android One, your phone will receive at least two years of OS upgrades to the latest version of Android. That means access to the latest innovations and a phone that always runs as smoothly as the day you bought it."
Mi A1 is listed there
And this http://www.mi.com/in/mi-a1/android-one/
2 years seems decent
It's probably not released in your country. This is the link to the game in the play store, check what it say when when you enter.
Since my partner had a Xiaomi phone and played with it for some time I've installed an app in my Pixel to imitate the Miui's navigation gestures. I've tried them all, Android Pie, OnePlus, iOS, etc and the best and more natural by far are Miui's
Edit: Link to the app in case anyone is interested
I made it better with a calibration app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=apps.redpi.touchscreenrepair but basically it interchanges letters when typing and hence input lag and is overly sensitive you can trigger touch by holding the corners or brushing with your headphone cord or hang up by putting it in your trousers squat up/down its the most sensitive touch digitizer and worst touchscreen I ever had.
This phone has Omnivision camera. It is the worst company when it comes to camera hardware. Literally even the cheapest Xiaomi phones have Sony or Samsung, just like the rest of the phones in the world. I have no idea why Xiaomi chose this camera hardware. If you can return it and get regular Note 10 or Note 10 5G (or even Pro), go for it!
Learn more about the camera here: https://www.kimovil.com/en/where-to-buy-xiaomi-redmi-note-10s
It's just the same case with all devices updated to Android 11. Download FNG from here - you just need to set up the gestures you use at first, bur then it should work just like stock MIUI gestures - and more! It works with all custom launchers too, so you don't have to go back stock anymore.
This icon means you're connected to the internet via a VPN.
If you don't use a VPN intentionally (TunnelBear, for example), you may have a data saving or an adblocking app which reroutes your traffic through their servers.
Most of MIUIs idiotic ways are actually the result of innovation, as MIUI started as a custom rom. They added new features, some of which Google eventually implemented in the stock android as well.
The memory optimizations were a pretty good feature when android didn't have anything like that. (Does anyone even remember JuiceDefender anymore?)
Problem is, Xiaomi refuses to switch over. For example, MIUI still uses their custom DND mode, which doesn't work with any of the official Android API calls and you can't, therefore, control it with Tasker of IFTTT or anything like that.
Same goes for the lock screen, vibration toggles, the goddamn notifications and such.
Had a similar issue on my dad's mi9t recently, tried everything and didn't want to factory reset either. So ended up installing this app from the play store, and toggled the notification volume with it. Once it was working again, i uninstalled the app and its been fine since.
If you need any help, let me know.
It's really not an excuse. Phones like this LG Optimus L5 2 had NFC chips at £115 in 2013.
Keeping all of my payments in one app that is way better designed than any banking app and I don't have to bother getting my wallet out is great and if a phone doesn't have it then I'll choose something else. It was the decider in getting a Mix 2 over the Mi 8SE for me.
A) Nobody uses Mi Browser.
B) Many American and European companies do this too. Stop using Google, Facebook, Instagram, even Reddit if you are so worried about your privacy. The best solution to all these privacy concerns is to just use a VPN. Sponsored by NordVPN, use code...
Try this app to see what is using the space. If it does not detect more than the space you say, then probably bad sdcard/storage blocks on the phone.
The Mi8 is slower than Mix 2S. And in fact Mix 2S is the fastest android phone out there right now.
The standard Mi8 face unlock is pretty much as good as any other face unlocks, ie not very good. Only the Mi 8EE model has a proper safe face unlocking.
I'd wait for Mi Mix 3 honestly, I can't stand the bottom bezel being way bigger and the selfie camera, Mi Mix 3 early rumours seem to be promising in that regard.
You could try the gcam Profile App. Maybe there is a profile for the note 7...
During calls I (my cheek most likely) randomly hit the screen, so 4G might get disabled, wifi same, the LED torch turns on, etc etc etc
Also, apps that rely on the proximity sensor, like https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.runtastic.android.pushup.pro&hl=en tend to miss some pushups.
If you google for "Xiaomi A1 proximity sensor", you may notice I'm certainly not the only one suffering: https://www.google.nl/search?q=xiaomi+A1+proximity+sensor&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b-ab&gfe_rd=cr&dcr=0&ei=dVeZWpfcL-PG8AfXl7y4Ag
If It's off, It will allow apps to run their services in background. If It's on and you don't change "App battery settings" and "Autostart" settings, It won't allow app services to run in background.
So let's say If you have so many apps and you turn of miui optimisation, It will allow them to run their services in background. Some notorious apps will keep their services run in background. That might drain your battery.
I keep miui optimisation on. And then change "App battery saver" and "Autostart" settings for apps that I need regularly for example Gmail, WhatsApp etc. So that I don't miss notifications. Btw I keep "memory optimisation" off. So that miui don't do aggressive killing of apps. You can also lock important apps in memory. So that It won't kick them out from memory.
So basically you can solve notification & app closing issues by changing settings individually for each apps. But If you don't want to do that individually to save time & If you can sacrifice some battery life, turn off miui optimisation.
Apparently there will be a Ceramic White colour.
Note: Somebody please correct me if I have made a mistake.
Both apps compress images heavily so that's normal. I also assume you're taking photos at an higher mpx count. Some things you can try: instead of sharing from your gallery upload them directly from the apps; instead of uploading the original photo reduce its resolution to the same resolution the app uses (for Instagram keep it at a 1080 pixels wide) use apps such as photo editor to reduce the photo size
You can also include
Its an app for miui to disable apps including some system apps without using pc or adb but this was working on miui 11 and earlier but i didn't tried it on miui 12 as i did it by the other method that you posted
This is the screenshot of when you click remove apps in this app and this gives this stock android type of menu which is different from your default menu as it includes disable button idk y Xiaomi hide it in first place
Gcam is bulit in camera app for pixel devices and earlier for nexus devices you can't install it directly from playstore
This is the link for gcam in playstore when you open it in playstore u will see this message - Your device is not compatible with this version
However there are many mods available in internet which can port the google camera app to mostly every android phone released after 2018 not all are going to be official you can search for your own phone in www.xda-developers.com and i recommend only xda as it is the only site i can trust for installing apps outside playstore don't install it from some shady site.
Speaking of changing launcher most people will suggest you nova. Its pretty good. Big fan.. But give this a try.
My new fav.
The Piston 3's were discontinued 2 years ago. You might manage to get one online but you should go for the new Pro HDs instead.
I own all Xiaomi earphones to date and these latest ones are the best so far. The previous generation wasn't that great, the P3 beat those but the new ones are brilliant.
Having same problem on my Redmi Note 3. Phone is stuck in headphone mode. Some of my friends also experienced this issue with redmi note 3 or note 4.
I am using sound about, which is a very useful app for phones having this problem. You can create headphones on/off widget like this.
I am using it from past 7 months. I didn't replaced headphone jack because service centre guy told me that It might take 10+ days to repair. I decided not to repair it because soundabout is working fine for me.
Did you/Will you replace headphone jack?
I use the My Boy! Gameboy Advanced emulator and it works flawlessly. There is a free and paid version and the free one works great. My bluetooth controller worked with it no problems.
There's a ton of excellent emulators available for Android, and a great resource is /r/EmulationOnAndroid
> I did read the full FAQ.
1) It isn't supported according to that list, but de facto it may be. Give it a try.
2) I don't use any, I think this "management with an app" thing came over from iOS where people have to rely on iTunes whenever they want to manage their stuff on the phone.
3) As far as I know there's an Android app created by Apple called "Move to iOS". Search for it.
Oh wait, I found it: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.apple.movetoios&hl=en
As someone who use Redmi Note 3 Pro and Mi Pad 1, I suggest you to avoid Xiaomi tablet. Horrible software, horrible user experience. If the software is buggy now, don't put too much expectation it will ever be fixed.
My friend recently just purchased Lenovo Tab3 8 Plus here. Seems great. This is my impression after playing with it for a while.
No, the Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro aka the Dual Hybrid IEMs are the best at the moment, they came out 2 months ago as a successor to the Piston 3.
You can get them here: http://www.gearbest.com/earphones/pp_261864.html
The cheapest genuine vendor I know. My Hybrids are from GB as well.
> We just want to remind you that this device features a similar camera setup on the back as the original Mi 6, which is rather cool for a mid-range device.
Interesting. So it isn't simply Mi 6X with a stock ROM? Or perhaps the prototype isn't the same as the final design?
> P60 draws almost twice the power while only being marginally better than the 636
The oppo f7 gets a very good battery life rating by GSMARENA despite only having 3400 MAH battery.
> Not to mention any mediatek chipset won't have good custom roms.
You can already download it from the miui forums
EDIT: Link of the apk - link of the forum thread
keep in mind it's still a beta version
That Google support article is old before Android One was "relaunched" with Mi A1. Here you can find "two years of OS upgrades to the latest version of Android" & here you can find both about two years of OS updates & three years of security updates.
You can get an acer predator with the same specs for considerably less on amazon. AFAIK the only spec the xiaomi has over it is the 1TB HDD which clearly isn't worth the price difference.
You should think things over at least, Gearbest might be trying to fuck you on this one.
You have to move the video to MIUI > .videowallpaper. Create that folder if it's not there. Then the video will show up in Themes app.
Or use this app
I moved from my Mi 5 to my Mix 2 a few weeks ago for £295. Was considering the SE but decided against it mainly due to the wait and the lack of NFC. So far I have no regrets (except I'd prefer a <5 inch phone and a headphone jack but you can't get that so if you have to go big go big I suppose). The design and build quality of the Mix 2 is great, it makes my mum's S8 seem cheap. Can't imagine the SE matching it in this regard. Absolutely love using the phone.
I've actually realised how little I use the front camera since getting the phone. I have this app for telling Snapchat and Insta to auto rotate. Snapchat makes it look like your picture will be upside down when you go to take it but then it's fine when you have.
Don't know how much you are into ROMing and tweaking either but the Mix 2 has official Lineage support which has been really great for me. You can also get GCam on the Mix. Looking at it there is no real development on any version of the Mi 8 yet.
If you can get it now, I'd go for the Mix 2. Not worth waiting when there's so little difference and for what in my opinion is
Material Notification Shade
Credit to this post, which is where I found out about it.
Use soundabout. It allows you to choose audio output for each category. I have same problem with my redmi note 3. (It's been 3-4 months now). My friend also had this problem but luckily it disappeared after some days. May be headphone jack of RN3 is very sensitive.
Soundcloud also has widgets. Keep headphone widget & mic widget on your home screen so that You can change controls from easily. Don't forget to enable that autostart thing from security app. So that app can work in background.
Btw did ypu try restarting your phone when earphones are connected?
The Piston 3's are out of stock almost everywhere because they were discontinued 2 years ago and the Hybrids aren't that good. You should get the latest Hybrid Pros instead, which are superior to both.
If you are sitting in a quiet room, a person next to you will hear it but doubt that it can be heard on transit for instance.
> 2018 mid-range devices haven't reached 2016 flagship specs yet
That's mostly wrong. The S7 had a very good display and a good camera back then generally the mentioned phones (Poco F1, Mi 8) absolutely outperform the S7 -- just as you would expect with more than two years between them in one of the fastest moving industries.
See spec comparison for details.
Mi Mix 2 is still pretty new! Here's a comparison between Mix 2, Max 3 and A2: https://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=8529&idPhone2=8963&idPhone3=9140
Both Max 3 and A2 have IR.
If I were you I would replace the screen on your Mix 2, you can get them on AliExpress for ~$35. (Look for ones ”with frame") https://m.aliexpress.com/wholesale/mi-mix-2-screen.html?channel=direct
Otherwise get Max 3! I just ordered one to replace my Max 1. I love the big screen and big battery.
Look up the XDA threat: https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/official-magisk-v7-universal-systemless-t3473445
You need to:
-flash provided magisk zip from XDA and install magisk manager APK
Or using superSU:
-log back in into snapchat
-backup appdata with titanium
restore appdata each time you logged out and want to "login" again
i) Camera isn't subpar with Pixel camera port (for which you don't even need root). And in good lighting even the stock camera is good especially the portrait mode.
ii) No. Xiaomi doesn't offer AOSP builds for their other devices. All other devices they have launched to date run MIUI with an exception of A1. What other guy might be saying is just buy Redmi Note 4/5 Plus & install a custom ROM since they have good development scene. Still the experience isn't as smooth going that way especially the bootloader unlock process.
iii) A1 is pure Android without any bloat. That's the whole point of Android One. For more go to https://www.android.com/one/
check here for connectivity (https://www.kimovil.com/en/where-to-buy-xiaomi-redmi-note-7-pro), rn7 pro only has band 5 on koodo - youll want to stick with the rn7 global for koodo, am currently hoping to upgrade my rn4 to a rn7 on koodo myself
Solution 1 Try to uninstall from here
Solution 2 Open Settings-> About phone-> Storage> Tap on Apps and data> Find Wallpaper Carousel and uninstall
Solution 3 Use Xiaomi Debloat Tool
This thing is so annoying, even when i denied all permission, disabled all notifications and stopped it auto running i STILL get notifications
Edit: found a solution-
It let me uninstall from here
I've commented further in your previous post but that's normal operation for a CPU to ramp up the frequency when work needs to be done or things in the foreground needs the resources. It slows down once the task it done. If you want to control this aspect of your device then root and install something like https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ram.memory.booster.cpu.saver
Try FLUID NAVIGATION GESTURE. May be it'll fix your problem. It is available on playstore.
Run ADB to hide the navigation button.
Let me know if this method fix your issue.
Hello OP, I personally have this kind of problem and currently using an app called "DiskUsage" (linked below) in which you can try. Basically this app scans through your folders and files, and then grouped them according to their memory occupied. You can see through your app data, app cache etc, and clear them. I tried clearing my apps cache in which google browser uses largest portion of this "OTHERS" thingy, for about 4GB of my internal memory. But be mindful of clearing anything and don't clear any on app data unless you personally want to delete everything in a certain app. You can try this and see how it goes, I hope this helps you.
>1/2)How do I know if it's a redmi note 7 or redmi note 7 pro? While this seems quite obvious, i found conflicting informations: some say that every device sold in europe (where i am) is a pro, others say that pro is still not available... it's very confusing
Download This app, you'll find the name of your of your device like this
>3) after waiting a week, I am going to unlock the bootloader, install team win recovery and then flash some Custom rom. Some say you need to flash stuff like lazyflasher or some kind of patch, is it true?
Correct procedure would be
format data (it will remove miui encryption)
flash rom & gapps
reboot, setup everything
flash magisk for root
I never flashed lazy flasher stuff in my life whenever I was in redmi note 3/5. I think you should flash lazy flasher in case you wanna stay on miui rom after flashing twrp, no need of you're directly flashing custom rom after flashing twrp, just keep that zip in your memory
And most important thing, you'll lose your internal memory after format, so keep all those zip files in external SD card. Or you can copy zips from pc using mtp while staying on twrp.
>4)Do you have suggestions for the rom i should pick?
I think you should go for pixel experience, lineage, havoc... These are top 3 roms when it comes to stability.
MIUI default launcher doesn't have an app drawer, you have to install another launcher.
I'd recommend the poco launcher, since is made by Xiaomi it's like the stock one but better in every aspect, and works great.
Link to the POCO launcher: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mi.android.globallauncher
Had a similar problem on my RN5. It switches the modes automatically, depending on the time of day.
A user suggested me a solution to this problem: Go on to the Google Play Store and download the app "Themes for Telegram" (You don't need the original app or an account). Then open it and go to Setting > Disable Night Mode. This fixed the problem on my phone.
I've heard a lot of people complaining that going home using gestures/navbar doesn't activate picture-in-picture mode in apps like YouTube, Maps, etc like it does in most other ROMs. This is a workaround method. You can also do this by opening a notification (even better if you have one stickied), but using this, there is no need to open another app or keep a notification in the notification tray.
Link to app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.quinny898.app.customquicksettings
Launcher: Nova Launcher
In Custom Quick Settings, you can create a custom toggle for the Quick Settings, when you do, go to Launch App, and select your default launcher (assuming you're using a custom launcher).
I agree completely, and there is also generally a lack of good dark themes, they are always overdesigned or pitch black. When I was using a honor phone I had lineart theme applied (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=emui.en.com.line_art&hl=en_US) and it looked stunning (ignore the crappy font, it is changeable). I'd wish for something like that.
I love my mi A1 because it's not MIUI, it's nice to know updates are there, and the fake apple aesthetic cheapened the look. The only thing I missed was night mode but that appeared for me after Oreo. I hated the launcher too, always preferred Nova
The split screen feature helps a lot too, you can put youtube on one of them.
But I'm having trouble finding the Options button, on my redmi note 2 I used to hold down the left touchkey and it'd open options on certain apps, I cannot locate this on the miA1.
About the pull down notification, this may help :
I used to use it on my redmi note when the drag stopped working (not sure if that was hard or software related.. it worked when it wanted to.)
I didn't give any permissions (not even location permission) and It works fine for me.
If it doesn't allow you to open on your miui version, ditch that app. It seriously doesn't need that permission and they are seriously abusing permissions.
Move to other weather apps. For example, weather timeline - It might cost 2$ but It's a very good app. Alternatively you can use Google's weather information. It allows you to create weather shortcut.
For me, Xposed and MIUI Tweaks made MIUI feel almost like a proper 'custom' rom and not something you'd find in a Samsung or an iPhone.
The redmi 5 plus is released as redmi note 5 in india which has the 625
This is the redmi note 5 you bought
The Chinese version's note 5 is different than the global note 5 (which is known as redmi 5 plus in china) hence the confusion.
Also the indian note 5 pro is the closest to china's note 5 although there are some differences in the camera module
1MORE has their own wireless sports earphones.
Purchase here: http://www.gearbest.com/bluetooth-headphones/pp_335825.html
1MORE is a company in the Mi Ecosystem, the manufacturer of Mi audio products incl. all Pistons and the Hybrids. Xiaomi never produced these products, they were always produced by 1MORE and sold under Xiaomi's name.
I'm on Revolution OS. Good battery life, there is xiaomi.eu as well.
By the way, google pay works on ANY custom rom, rooted or not.
Just follow this instruction once you have your custom ROM rooted with Magisk.
Do not forget to chose HCE Wallet in NFC secure element position settings !!! Not Sim Wallet.
I would love one too, there's so little choice on this market: here is a list of phones with sensible size, specs and OS version (<=5", 2016+, 2+GB RAM, oreo or ios 11)
I'm currently using a Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime with LineageOS (Android 7.1).
Xiaomi CEO last year confirmed that tablet is in works, but no other information on this. If you cannot wait take a look at this one Huawei MediaPad M5 10. (There's also the smaller version Huawei MediaPad M5 8)
how many times does this have to come out? there already is a lg phone with "unsupported" resolution.
these are likely just reccomended specs, doesnt mean anything.
The ROM is published so it should be stable. If you encounter issues, I advise you to factory reset, if that's an option.
I found that using https://www.kimovil.com/en/ is a great resource for finding which phones have band capability for the network of your choosing. I ended up purchasing the Mi Mix 3 for use with t-mobile, it is missing one band (71).
They have two different profiles on Trustpilot because shadily enough.. once their first profile got under 5/10.. they bothered creating another one.
First The solution shop UK
Second The Solution Shop Global
Please protect users from being burnt now a THIRD time.. were this any other private seller after the third time of problems with orders.. literally any xiaomi vendor in AliExpress has a better track record.
Pump, then dump part 3 I know mods are here voluntarily.. let's not allow this shady seller to tarnish Xiaomi.
Not in stock MIUI, but you can use this for something similar. Just make sure you turn off Battery optimisation for this app and enable autostart.
Ok, first of all, a google search about what that other is would probably take less time than creating an already-multiple-times-posted post. You'd probably find that others is just files the phone couldn't put in any of the rest categories. Now, if you really wanna check the internal storage of your phone, check this app, it is very easy to use:
Apparently, Google removed it from the share menu in Android 10. You can install this app to get this functionality back:
use this app to track down those huge files, click on those files and select open file location or delete them through the app
For notification icon on status bar you can use this
My settings :
You might need to adjust a little because I'm using RN7P.
Or you can also use "Notch Notifications" https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=zanini.andrea.notchtest&hl=es_AR to mitigate the problem till the fix comes to the Stable version.
You might need to adjust a little because I'm using high dpi.
Can't say for sure, I guess it would be the same. But you can already do constant HR on the Band 2 with apps like Tools & Mi Band.
Have you set it as the default "Assist & Voice input"?
Settings - Installed Apps - Defaults (at the bottom) - Assist & Voice Input.
If the non working Chinese assist is always coming back as the default, you may need to freeze it. With TiBu or "App Freeze"!
Just bought a family member one. Get the Global Version, got it from gearbest (link below). It supports band 4 LTE on T-Mobile and uses HSPA+/3g/2g for calls, no voLTE however.
Do keep in mind depending where you live T-Mobile has been shutting down certain bands. Also T-Mobile supposedly is aiming to shut down most of 3g/HSPA+ by 2019 and have phones run almost exclusively on LTE for everything including voice.
Edit: Forgot the link
btw the gold is not as atrocious as it seems. (I've never been a fan of golden phones, but this one is more subtle)
GSM Arena has already updated their database - https://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_redmi_k20_pro-9708.php
I guess global version will surface like a month later than the CN version. Darn it I can't wait.
After waiting 37 days for delivery to Ireland, the one linked below arrived yesterday.
Order the special glass that is offered free (not an extra one), fits the slot in the cover.
Before that I used a nilkon case that didn't cover the phone.
More options: -
Also make sure you get the right case for your model "Kenzo" or "Kate". Above is for Kenzo.
Currently use this one. Looks cool with my dark grey RN3P and soft touch makes the phone pleasant to hold.
There is a mod specific to the Mi 8:
There is the regular version (and the newest as of now):
No, they aren't in stock, in fact they aren't sold at all, if you take a closer look you cannot select the Piston 3, only other earphones.
The Piston 3 was discontinued 2 years ago, you won't really find any. Why not get Xiaomi's latest, the Hybrid Pro? I own all Xiaomi IEMs and the Hybrid Pros are the best of all (followed by the Piston 3).
Ah, I thought you were talking about the ROM only, meaning the OS installed. The international and global versions (http://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_604986.html?wid=4) that Gearbest sells are indeed different. They have different LTE bands.
Check the LTE bands in the description section of the international model and make sure your carrier supports them before buying.
I'm not talking about what you bought, I am talking about the syllables that I bought. They are perfect for me and make me wonder how I ever tolerated wires. Phone in pocket and never a worry of tearing them out of my ear.
Both are good actually but the gold one sounds richer. The difference is not really significant.
The aux-in and the microSD slot on the newer one justify the markup more than the sound quality difference.
They are SUPER muddy. I don't know what their marketing angle is, but the reality is they have really good, deep bass that virtually no song can overpower, but the mids and highs are just straight up not there. Personally, I liked them because I listen to lots of dubstep/chillstep and like their soft sound, but I haven't used them since the new model came out.
The successor has way, way better mids and highs, but slightly weaker bass. Much more of an all-rounder.
It's on a forked version of MIUI and you can actually download the launcher to get a feel of it first before buying the F1
The first thing I would be looking at is the Launcher settings which I would think include animations. Hard to believe that the Mix 2 would bog down on that, but something is obviously causing it.
I had to do this on a previous phone:
People should understand that purchasing through Amazon does not guarantee that what you get will be genuine. Also, these products are almost always ridiculously overpriced. The Hybrids' original Chinese price is $15, almost half of the linked product's price.
I don't know how they compare to the CX-300 but these are praised by people on /r/headphones for being super good for their price. Some say these are the best earphones one can get under $100.
Purchase from GearBest, they cost $17 there.
Battery is Max 3 - 5500mah. In comparison, typical phone is about 3000mah.
Big screen is Max 3 - 6.9" but somehow overall dimensions is same as my old Mi Max with 6.4" screen, I guess bezels.
Antenna band not my expertise. You can view specs here:
Camera wise: conventional wisdom is flagship iPhone or flagship Samsung has best cameras. But those sell for 4 figure sums, while Max 3 I bought for $290 (4GB ver not the one in the link).
Currently using Mi Max, awaiting delivery of Max 3 casing before using it.
Indeed, https://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=5600&idPhone3=8963&idPhone2=9249 the Nexus 7 had a 142.1 cm^2 screen while the Mi Max 3 has a smaller 122.9 cm^2 screen -- 14% decrease while the diagonal difference is less than 2%.
If one wants to get a big screen with very very close size to the Nexus 7, the Mi Pad 4 is 185.6 cm^2 and only 6mm or 5% wider and same length.
There is no separate DAC for audio processing, uses the default found on SD845, you can read the audio review here : https://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_pocophone_f1-review-1808p3.php
The Piston 2 was discontinued over 2 years ago, you won't find any, however, a reissue was released this year, called 1MORE Piston Classic.
1MORE is a Chinese audio startup, the manufacturer of all Xiaomi headphones, including the Piston 2 and the latest in-ears. They created the Piston series and decided to release the reissue under their own brand.
A post about it on /r/headphones: https://redd.it/4z1ogc
In case you aren't looking for the Piston 2 specifically but for great budgets earphones, I can recommend Xiaomi's latest In-Ear Pro HDs.
I was seriously considering buying this until iFfalcon was introduced. To me iFFalcon seems to be a better bet now considering it's running official Android TV.
The White brick is the older version.
The new version is a Black Cylinder, like reviewed here in detail with a teardown. Or On OP's linked site
Something seems wrong with the distance. Its supposed to be 10m. 2m seems odd.
The Black Cylinder battery life the review said even went to like 53 Hours, That is absurd.
