    Riley is pretty out of touch with smartphones things I've to say. Pixel-binning has been a thing ever since the IMX-586 was released with the Honor View 20 (I believe it was the first to use that sensor/tech) back in late 2018, so >3yrs ago! And literally all phones using a QB/Tetra/Nonacell sensor don't shoot in full-res by default. Also manual/pro mode (including manual focus) has been a thing in smartphones for even way longer (almost a decade ago). I don't know who did it first, but I would like to credit Nokia Lumias with encouraging (the use of) & democratizing the "Pro" mode (even though some "Pro" phones still don't come with one). It had the manual focus setting too (which helped with Lumias' generally shorter minimum focusing distance for macro shots), the only thing missing was a temperature slider. Heck my cheap $250 phone (with a SD820) from 2017 also had it (including the manual focus & temperature slider)!

    The only objection i have is about that case statement. Xiaomi is a pretty famous company in Asia and Europe. So cases would be readily available other than the one found in the case. Since they are not in the NA it doesn't mean that they are not famous in other continents. Otherwise the video is pretty good, appreciate the hard work.

    Riley's lack of knowledge about smartphones and the market really showed in this one.

    • Sid Golan
      Sid Golan

      He literally has zero knowledge about in-depth tech in general. He's not an electronics or computer guy and his ignorance was shown years ago during a build your own pc series that LTT had and Riley had no clue about the components to source. His primary role as a writer on the show seems to have been replaced by making him a host given his "comfort level" in front of the camera, but his ignorance does shine through in these short circuit videos. Some of the naive sarcastic statements are just plain rude. Another example is his behaviour in the Microsoft Surface Duo and Duo 2 videos. One would think his priority in such videos was amping up the comedic angle at whatever cost. It's really silly.

    • krono

      @UnjustifiedRecs quite late to respond, but I was revisiting this comment. Videos on this channel are usually matched to the host's area of expertise. Alex does 3D printers and laptops. Sarah does design-related products. Anthony does retro gaming and Linux-based stuff. They're hosting people who know what the devices do and are meant to achieve. So you're completely wrong, it's not that they want a layperson's perspective on this phone. They really should've gotten someone who knows more about the smartphone market.

      @AwolR I don't know why you're so on the defensive, me and many other people are simply stating that it gives off a bad look when it doesn't seem they really care much about what they are talking about. Tho not all hosts behave the same, I love the camera videos by Brandon.

      @One Of Zero exactly, xiaomi is WIDELY popular in south east asia too since iphone and samsung is beyond a luxury brand because of the minimum wage of most people there, itll take 2-3 months of average workers salary in north america to get an iphone, while south east asian average worker could take up to MORE than 6 months of their salaries so xiaomi is one of the best option for them. considering theyre a tech channel they shouldve been more considerate of brands other than the popular brands in north america.

      @NN O Ok i get that they can ignore Chinese population in their videos because IRglo isn't even a thing in China BUT this devices are big in Europe and Latin America etc. And they know IRglo videos get plenty of global views as well so shouldn't they be thinking that their audience is not just North America?

    • DooMMasteR

  • Xerbly

    This video doesn't feel right, even tho it's short circuit feels like it had way less depth than other videos on the channel. Pixel binning, the case statement, the plug statement could be looked up in literally 10 seconds. Xiaomi might not be a big player in North America but it certainly is one of the biggest phone companies in Asia/Europe (aka most of the world). While I don't mind IRglors aiming for North American audiences, it doesn't take much time or effort to look outside of your bubble once in a while.

    I would wish for LMG to expand to Europe and build another channel there with a focus on products that are available in EU like Xiaomi Products and as well european laws and stuff and giving it another view to it. This video especially shows how different NA and EU Views can appear sometimes. Ik this sounds unrealistic but I´d love it. Thanks for all the content you deliver! Appreciate it.

    • DooMMasteR

      @Punpun3 even general tech differs, we have a lot of stuff that the US do not get, Laptop models, phones... Of course you can still buy them in the other markets... Just not that "easy". Also there is things like 2 years warranty and such over here...

    • Punpun3

      not much sense in them making an eu channel if this is not a smartphones channel, it's a general tech channel for a north american audience and other english speaking countries to a lesser degree. it shows they're not smartphone focused since the reviewer in this video didn't even know about pixel binning or the fact that cases for all xiaomi phones are pretty easy to get outside the us, and cases for flagship xiaomi phones are easy to get in the us. I bet all he ever used was apple branded like most americans

  • Raheel Dhanani

    I have been using Xiaomis for over five years and I can tell you their strongest segment is mid-tier to budget phones where they destroy every competitor priced between $200-700 by offering every parallel spec marginally better for $100-350 (half the price). And that is exactly what Xiaomi is - a rugged daily driver for the masses. When you get into flagship category, for Xiaomi, things fall apart. No. 1) they absolutely cannot compete on camera performance. 2) their screens while being great cannot rival their top competitors. 3) other than bare-bones playstore, Xiaomi apps are more geared to the asian market to take advantage of the hardware. ROW has fairly limited software availability. 4) when you start touching that $1000 marker the additional 2-300 bucks make more sense to pay if only for the brands but you do also get the other significant performance advantages so you're basically not getting anything "pro"ish from Xiaomi. Just compare the s-pen and host of applications for +$300... Get hold of a Poco F3 (8gb/256gb), in my opinion the top performance cut-off boundary for Xiaomi devices. Beyond there the yield curve (performance/$) takes a steep dive... IMO... And man can we please start addressing the animosity towards the is a piece of hardware history that we would like to take into the future - give us our headphone jack! And another thing - please tell them to give us a resolution setting to put thin black bars along the curvature so we can have the screen both ways - curved or flat! I don't think it is impossible, they just won't give it to us...lest they make that perfect phone that we never need to change...

      @HPalma yeah i thought it was purely aestethic, those diamonds are as large as a schucko or even our Italian standard plugs, so i never questioned it 😅 Americans will probably never switch to something safer, they even still use fuses instead of differential interruptors in their houses after all 😆

    • xxxenricop

      @Manas Pradhan untill you step on one in the dark 😭 Then really the old fuse in the plug is outdated and would be completely redundant in Europe.

    • RelakS

      @Alias Anybody Schuko is used when the device needs ground (and you don't need the French, the Swiss or the Italian standard). That is the CEE 7/4 plug (Also CEE 7/7 to be compatible with French CEE 7/5 socket). If you don't need earth, you can use Europlug (CEE 7/16) or CEE 7/17 (This looks like a Schuko without earthing). Both of these unearthed plugs are good for 10 and 16A, but our vacuum and drill definitely uses the 7/17. The main advantage of the Europlug, that it does not make contact while you can touch the metal parts, but not as big as a Schuko sized plug. According to Wikipedia as I usually don't give a thing to it. If it fits, I plugs :)

      @Vaman Kamath M bro, which GCam and XML do you use, can you tell me please? I have tried many, but unsatisfied with the result in low lightning specially for human faces, it produces either dark or oil painting like results. While Front Camera performs excellent in all conditions. So I believe the issue is mostly with XML.

    • ocudagledam

      ​@Nazmul Fahad I'm not sure on what you are basing your comment about the camera. The main sensor was pretty high end for the era and OnePlus used the same one as recently as last fall in a $700 phone, while the Mi 9T came out back in 2019. Also, it's the same one that featured in the Mi 9 that you had, as well as Mi 9SE, so Xiaomi had plenty of experience with it and the reviews pretty much unanimously praised it. I still have the baby brother (the non-Pro) and, while for night shots you do get better results with GCam, I seldom use it as it generally performs pretty well with the stock app too. Also, it ticked most of the other boxes: HDR AMOLED, Gorilla Glass 5 front and back, fingerprint reader under the display... It also lacked a couple of flagship features that already existed in the era, such as wireless charging and an official IP rating and thus I'll agree that it was more of a "flagship killer" than an actual flagship, but saying that it was "just the 855 with a sucky camera and the rest was poco-ish" simply doesn't hold.

    • no

      @Nazmul Fahad I agree Mi 9 was beautiful. Imagine if it had uniform bezels too

    • no

      @Nazmul Fahad I'd have to charge my Mi 9 2-3 times a day with heavy use. It only ever saw 4 hours SOT

    • Nazmul Fahad
      Nazmul Fahad

      @no Dunno about that, I switched to OnePlus 7t pro immediately after 855 plus launched. But in my experience holding both, I'd say mi 9 was much better and lightweight. 3350 mAh battery wasn't that bad as I charge phone every day.

      I mean, that's the idea of pixel binning, it increases/improves any other image quality other than resolution.

  • Psychx

    I got a Poco F3 5G 8/256 GiB with 120Hz AMOLED for less than 300€ last summer. The hardware is great, so is build quality. The device has the latest Android version and has been recieving updates regularily. The only annoying thing is that the last few software versions contain an annoying bug that sporadically makes the UI animations glitch out. This applies to Xiaomi, Poco and RealMe/RedMi devices since they are all using the same software. Anyhow, besides having to restart my phone occasionally due to this (it's not a biggie as the device is blazing fast), I am very satisfied. For people wanting to take matters into their own hands - the bootloader is unlockable free of charge and there is a vivid custom-ROM community. And yes, getting a transparent case included with these phones is normal. There is also tons of third party stuff on Amazon EU, where these phones are sold aswell.

      @ReinaldoJAF Actually, universal adapters (100-240VAC 50-60Hz) are not a rare sight, and also I had usb chargers with interchangeable prongs. So, I don't think that it would be very expensive to make even these adapters with interchangeable prongs even if the manufacturer encloses only the country specific ones, and make all the others as an optional accessory which you can order.

      Are you kidding? You went from one of the most common phones in the world to one of the most rare phones in the world, of course it became more difficult.

And he was talking about a Xiaomi flagship, which sell so much less than the budget Xiaomi phones.

But I also have a 256GB card inside and F3 doesn't have a TF card slot so that would be a problem for me if i had the F3

    In addition to what everyone else already said, its also worth mentioning that compared to the speakers on these Xiaomi phones, iPhone 12 series and 13 series sounds horrible. It is very misleading to say that its "very good" then somehow worse than iPhones(they really should do a side by side like they do with laptops).

    I still have my Xiaomi Mi 9T, and I just love it. It has an IR blaster that goes with the Mi Remote App. Apart from not having wireless charging, this phone is brilliant. The software they have for taking pictures is awesome, the granularity of the settings allows you to do basically whateveryou want with it, I only use apps from google for calling, messaging, pictures, mail, etc. So I disabled everything from Xiaomi, because anyway I don't need those in Romania. The Mi 9T is 3 years old, but I love the fact that it's bezelles and has a pop-out selfie camera (that still works flawlessly after 3 years btw) and if I break it, I'm just gonna buy the same phone if I can still find it for sale... I'll only switch to a new phone if they make one with IR, pop-out selfie cam, and jack at the top...

    • ocudagledam

      Dude, this is weird, but AFAIK, and I'm typing this on one, the Mi 9T hasn't got an IR blaster. Do you have a Poco F2 or something?!

  • Xtrems

    From what I can tell the photo taking app looks exactly like the one on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro, co splitting the 50MP and smaller picture modes to save space might've been a move designed for their phones with less storage and it just wasn't removed on this one. Either that, or the fact that the full pictures take longer to save which can be annoying if you're like making lots of pictures and immediately operating on them in some way

    the day a xiaomi phone is launched there is already a flood of cases on aliexpress, i got caught in between 6 different cases for my xiaomi phone to decide on just one to buy, and those 6 were after i already choose only the ones i liked more.

      @One Of Zeroit is an urban legend for you. And not all branded cases are expensive like Ringke and Im not saying all cheap cases aren't good enough but my experience with cheap ones isn't the same as you do. Cheap ones I bought didn't last a year because the silicone or rubber that holds the phone somehow detached from the polycarbonate and like I said, it didn't hold the phone well like it is very easy to take it off after a year

    • One Of Zero
      One Of Zero

      @Newblesse Obblige Lol, the phone ejected from the case? That seems more like some crazy urban legend to make people buy expensive phone cases. No way that is happening. Did you really had your phone get ejected? Because i have never seen such a thing. Nether for me nor anyone in my family(i buy cases from Aliexpress for all of them). They do their job just fine. The few times i dropped it they saved my ass. Is just some plastic thing around your phone for Christ sakes. is not high tech. This brand manufacturers pretending like they engineered some overcomplicated thing are full of shit. There is nothing to it. Even the cheap guy isn't making anything much worse.

      Newblesse Obblige

      @One Of Zero Fashion cases are fine to bought anywhere but idk about those "shockproof" cases though. I mostly buy protection focused cases and the cheap one's protection is like there no cases at all. Also, cheap asf cases, in my experience, doesn't grip the phone well like it will mosty likely to eject when the phone hits the floor knee-leveled and their design will wear off easily.

    • One Of Zero
      One Of Zero

      @Newblesse Obblige I get not wanting to buy a Pc or something from Aliexpress but a phone case? Is just some plastic thing, how much better does anyone think the branded case will be? Is not some complex device that needs great engineering or anything. I buy all my phone cases for cheap from Aliexpress and they are perfectly good for purpose, some of them are damn right fine looking as well. I can't see what more i will get by a branded case really.

    • DooMMasteR

      @Newblesse Obblige you cannot even officially buy the phone in the US... Why cases... That said, Amazon will ship them anyways.

    Okay, I know that these videos are just about a fast unboxing and overview of specs, but come on guys, the amount of knowledge you guys have and give about samsung/apple/google phones compare to all the other brands is huge. It makes you guys look like fanboys of the big brands and haters or simply not having any interest on the rest (which I know is not the case). Xioami is a massive brand and has even surpassed samsung in many regions of the world in terms of sale numbers so they definitely need more atention. Give ALL brands the same love you guys give to the mainstream ones.

    • PoneJuice

      @Juan Vidal what I’m saying is it’s a waste of time to spend any more resources on this brand. No one here cares about a brand we can’t buy from our cell provider.

    • Juan Vidal
      Juan Vidal

      @PoneJuice This channel is not for in-depth reviews, that is why giving in-depth reviews to some brands and crappy reviews for others doesn't feel right, and the fact that most of their audience is from NA doesn't mean they can't try to reach other regions (of which they certainly have some auddience). BTW any NA user can have a xiaomi phoone, sometimes you can find them on Amazon or just buy it from EU, they come with a western rom, google services and everything an android phone should have.

    • PoneJuice

      Most of their audience is US and the big brands dominate sales here. Why give in-depth reviews to phones their audience will never see

    Yeah, I could use cases on my phones. But I almost never drop my phones somehow, and so far I have always been lucky in my life. Not having a case doesnt only make the phone look much better - it also makes it feel much better, imo. Some people hold their phones as if the were a hammer grip. I touch mine as if it was a banana that must remain in its shape even after using it.

    I have the 11T pro model. It charges fully in 17 minutes, with its mighty 120watts adapter (which comes in the box). So happy with the phone and its performance so far, and the fast charging changed my usage of the phone, I never connect to the charger while i sleep, it fully charges while you wash you face and brush your teeth lol. And for 700 euros, and robot-vacuum as a gift, it was a steal imo.

    i've been caseless since my first phone. i tried using one on my oneplus 3t but it was just too much. they dont slip in and out of my pocket as smoothly. i drop my phone off the side of my bed ~3ft onto the hardwood floor at least once a week and have never shattered a screen.

    I noticed on my (poco) phone as well, that because some people just make hundreds of photo's, for those random photo's xiaomi defaults to 1080p. You CAN make a sharper picture, but if you are just randomly taking unimportant pictures it really doesn't matter. Also, xiaomi doesn't use american bricks because they are affraid they'll be put into the same bag as huawei, with a lot of the us being extremely negative about china brand.

  • Jakub-E1

    4:38 have in their smartphone an additional thermal engine "mi_thermald", which causes the CPU clocks to be lowered to lower temperatures(when CPU or battery heats to 40-45°C) and slows the charging speeds to safe battery

  • Takkun

    In my country so many cases you can buy online for this phone even before the phone was launched.

  • Alphawolf

    I've been using Xiaomi for atleast 4 - 5 years now but they lost my interest when they switched from a hardware proximity sensor to a virtual one which is slow compared to the hardware one, i think it started with their 10 pro (which i bought and tested, then returned it.)

  • BTGM25

    Can’t wait for the Oppo and Xaiomi phones in like 2 years time, where their fast charging is like 1 megawatt for some dumb reason, and apple will have just created the in display finger print scanner or some other dumb technology that every other company ever will have had forever lol

    I always love that Xiaomi gives you the PREMIUM experience when you spend this amount of money. So what if you dont use the charger or case. they give it in case you want to. its called OPTIONS. not giving you nothing and selling back to you the options. you can always use a spare case and a spare charger.

    • RetroDestroyer

      @Sreejith KS Also, I would like to mention that a 120 watt charger is a amazing and all, but that's gonna affect the battery in the long term , so its a trade off between FAST CHARGE and longevity

    • RetroDestroyer

      @Josuke Uchiha that's great to hear! Hope more phones from then also follow suit

    • RetroDestroyer

      @Sreejith KS I have no doubt Redmi makes great phones! At an unbelievable price too! I am just stating the fact that keeping ads on operating systems is not great as a user.... Always remember, when something is free, YOU are the product, in this case, it's your data. Also, I am confident that most users won't even disable those ads because most people just use their phone for the default experience instead of fiddling in the settings

      Some of the comments here are complete BS, had redmi note 5 pro, redmi note 8 pro and now Mi11t and the experience has been flawless. 12.5 was running great but MIUI 13 is a completely different story, it runs even better. Battery life has been great with all of them. And there are no ads on the 11T, note 5 and 8 do have them tho And you can absolutely remove default apps that come with it (which is not many to begin with). Probably one of the best android "skins" out there.

Is mostly the brightness in the sun and the nice colors of an Oled that are missing but is not a big deal.

  • AwakenMagic

    Xiaomi is doing a really good job with their phone Performace, they are fast, The camera is pretty good (Night Camera is not the best, still a bit junky), but It's exactly the opposite with the Software, I've owned two last generations of phones from Xiaomi (Mi 10T Pro, Mi 11T pro which I currently use), and I did run into issues like, the screen getting pressed by itself, screen scrolling itself up & down, But I think the worst thing, is the microphone, Literary, from the time when I bought the phone, after just a couple of days, I started to have issues that the Microphone just stops working in the middle of a call, I am not sure if it is the Hardware, or the Software issue but They should have already fixed it, which they did not. On other hand, a REALLY good thing the Xiaomi Smarphones did a really great job, is the Charging time, MAN, around 25Mins to have the phone fully charged from 0-100% is a game changer, you forgot to charge your phone before work? No Problem, Just plug it in, and before you manage to eat your breakfast, you have it fully charged and ready for the day.

    Bro, 12 pro comes in 8/128 8/256 and 12/256 variants starting at 880 $. Also keep in mind that this is competitor to S22 plus not Ultra. Waiting Xiaomi 12 Ultra later this year for that. Also there's possibility that it will come with 200w charger in the box. All things considered i would pick this anytime over Samsung or Apple. But unfortunately not enough upgrades to make me change my S21 Ultra...
