Actually Xiaomi is very popular in europe so it's not a problem to get a case for it here ^^
In India too am replying to this on a Xiaomi lol
Its the most popular here in India
Ya, and the global variants support most north american/ Canadian bands. Obviously check your carrier before ordering an out of market phone.
I had the redminote 10 once, buying cases is really easy 💀💀
Xiaomi is a huge company,and getting cases for that phone will be easy in many countries.
Americans, they live in a bubble
@sic e Bae they both seem to be from hongkong so yeah
@mysticode well canada is in america, not in united states of america, but america as a continent, so they are americans.
@Tony Shen Any american who develops love for hockey and or maple syrup is deported to canada
@sic e Bae They used to be but now they have their own dictator that does what he wants.😛
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)!
@Jim Tamim wtf are you talking about?
He has been like this for over a year now. Absolutely 0 research or interest in even looking things up for the products they check out here. Most likely just whip something together in an hour for this video. And people with actual interest would still have managed way better given just an hour.
Finally someone explained. It actually made me quite stressed that he weren't able to tell what are the things going on, hahaha.
Because we are human. Don't belittle others passion because it doesn't align with yours.
Fed them with apple marketing and this is the result. They only know about apple's new filters
How the hell some Short Circuit videos go so much in depth showing that host knows their stuff, and then there's this one.
@This is a load of barnacles didn't watch video till the end, so just couldn't know about that
@Illia Petrychenko He pulled out his Pixel 3 during the video, are you blind?
he just uses his iphone, knowing nothing about what is going on between apple presentations
@Mark C no I think he's just a little lazy/clueless/careless
He's clearly hostile against Xiaomi
As usual, the Mi 12 series also has an infrared transmitter - useful in hotels to "hack" the TV in the hotel room 😅
In the box of Xiaomi 12 pro you will get an adapter from usb port to headphone jack so you can use that
Or to pair with your Nokia Communicator. Yes, it works, not kidding. I laughed my ass off.
I love the IR trasnmitter if only they had a IR receiver for remotes that are not in their repository.
@Devwardhan Kothari do you know how tiny an SMD IR LED is? they're about the size of a crystal of sugar
@Pixels yea your right my bad it only uses a c type earphones but the X3 NFC does so I assumed they all did. I get mixed up with the names some times because there's that many. Though I much prefer wireless but I can understand why some don't and prefer wired.
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.
@syedbilal are you a tech writer from Pakistan? I think we might have met on a media trip to Singapore for Facebook a few years back…
also custom case makers will do any case for any phone for peanuts not super quality, but it exists and i used them
@Clark Wallace not the point.
@One Of Zero maybe it's true that it could be only for india only rom. I've switched to arrow os a few months ago and will never go back to stock miui again.
Riley's lack of knowledge about smartphones and the market really showed in this one.
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.
@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.
He's trying too much to be funny it's pathetic
@dude Whats wrong with that?
Got to love how North Americans can't understand how what's not sold in their country can be popular elsewhere.
Usa is the best now sit down USA USA
@Gurprem Singh And don't forget europe their phones are pretty popular here too
@John Buscher Well, Xiaomi is quite popular in México and México IS IN north america so...
By default, pixel binning is used to generate brighter images. 50:4 = 12.5Mp . This is now common with all manufacturers. Also with the Google Pixel 6 Pro
@AwolR limited maybe, but not knowing about pixel binning while it's already an 'old' tech is just weird
@Sean Buenavista samsung caps that to just 8mp for 3rd party apps 😒
@Visceras Riley didn’t say getting a case would be hard, someone else did. Try again mate.
@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. I already knew everything about this phone before coming in so me personally just wanted to see someone else's opinion but we barely got any of it.
"No body is gonna make a case for that phone". This man probably has never leave north America (not even north America because I'm sure you can find stores with tens of different cases for this phone in Mexico)
@dark matter please go back to elementary school
Amazon: am I a joke to you?
@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?
@Romano some of which do not even sell products in Europe
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.
They don’t live in Europe so why should they care?
Also they are very affordable for their price. It's crazy how much you can get on even a budget phone.
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.
@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...
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
Seems like having a battery that can be charged to 800% should be the headline in this story
@brackis oh hahahah, completely missed that
@Justin Sijbolts 5:02 in the video
I live in Europe and its normal for phones to come with cases. Also Xiaomi is very popular so the argument "who is gonna make cases for that" doesnt hold up.
@Eren x Mikasa Yeah i live in Bosnia and Herzegovina and i can say that Xiaomit started getting more and more popular over the last few years
Is Xiaomi popular there? Coz it is very popular in South Asia!
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 headphone-jack...it 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...
I know "this is short circuit" but how hard would it have been to just test the fast charging yourself? At that kind of speed that's very doable...
There would be a short circuit if they do that.
I feel you, but the “regular plug” is the European one, no matters what you say: “the science is in”😂
@The Belpo fuses don't block the short at the time. They wait all burn to disable de energy.
@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 😆
@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.
@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 :)
I wish xiaomi still makes pop-up selfie camera. I felt like we prematurely jump the under screen camera too soon
@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.
@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.
@Nazmul Fahad I agree Mi 9 was beautiful. Imagine if it had uniform bezels too
@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
@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.
Hey, just saying that you also have to enable the 108 mp sensor in galaxy s22 as well
I mean, that's the idea of pixel binning, it increases/improves any other image quality other than resolution.
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.
@Joe_Anroy Poco is a beast of a brand! You stick with your Samshit/ iPhone fan boi phone 🤦
@Vaz G Huawei used to do that, or still does it i think
@Vaz G It just warns you that you will be disabling security and phone tracking as well as warranty void in case the phone is bricked when flashing. And fun fact after requesting unlock bootloader you have to wait 48 hrs before confirmation, enough time for you to realize the risks🥰
The bootloader is unlockable free of charge? What manufacturer makes you pay to unlock it?
6:25 "Make this a regular plug" Dude, that IS a regular plug. At least, in Europe :D
eastern Europe, all post sowiet countries. this standard ends in China
@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.
most of the world so do my country we use europe plug ,uk plug as common while american and other are rare sight
@Some Dude With A Sexy Kiara Cosplay Pic the thing is, at this point, everyone should have an adapter, so yes, having an already your country plug would be nice, but having to create so many differents plugs may create some cost ups
@ReinaldoJAF Hell, Xiaomi must start sending out phones with plugs from different countries, like the Philippines with a North American plug included
Just because you dont see the xiaomi brand everywhere in your area doesnt mean nobody uses it, the brand. Dominates in Asia and is like 80% of the global population
@Stiegelzeine nope If you're talking about Japan then yes, but everywhere else? No.
@JustSomeRandomGuy they didn’t apple has a marketshare of 17,89% in February 2022 and Xiaomi 16,61%
@Stiegelzeine I think Xiaomi overtook Apple and is now at second place just before Samsung
1. Xiaomi is quite popular in Asia but definitely does not “dominate” 2. Asia’s population takes up 59.76% of the world population
One thing that I dont know if they considered is that at usa voltage so 110V it charges with "only" 96W. Charger requires 220-240V to give 120W, its on xiaomi website
@Raahim Hadi Not either
Xiaomi doesn't sell their devices in the US officially, so it's not that big of a deal for them
Went from a POCO F3 (a xiaomi sub brand) to a Fold 3, and it was WAY easier to find cases for the POCO than the Fold, i had to go to aliexpress to get a decent and not ridiculously overpriced piece of plastic in the shape of a case to get one.
Is Xiaomi worth upgrade from oneplus 7 pro. I mean my OnePlus 7 pro it's just great
