The wife has been a staunch Android / Samsung user for many years , last time she got a One Plus & much to my surprise she loves it.

Have a look at OnePlus. I got a 5t back in April 2018 and it's still going strong.

I have the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9, my missus has the newer, top spec one (300). Mine was maybe 190. I bought them from Xiaomi direct - came next day or thereabouts.
Camera is top spec - without even trying. I hardly use it. Internet is quick. Battery gets more than a day with normal use.
China spies on you but I don't care, as I don't have much to say.
If I could be more bothered, I'd remove the spurious apps. My missus runs into the odd problem but she's one of those people who never deletes anything or updates anything. I've had no problems - been over a year so far. Son broke the screen on his old one - muggins here bought him a new one.
Don't know what else to say. As far as I'm aware they use all the Samsung parts but are cheaper for a higher spec.
If I were to say anything, I don't imagine these phones lasting that long, but none of them do. They're no worse than Samsung's - probably better, from my own personal experience. Nothing about them particularly infuriates me, if that helps!

if you're thinking of getting a Xiaomi make sure somewhere in the UK stocks a replacement screen.

Wouldn't it be simpler and a lot cheaper for him to replace the screen on his existing phone?

Good response AS, thanks. I know what you mean about the Chinese spying issue, but like you I can't imagine they're the least bit interested in anything I say or do. Anyway, almost every phone on the market is either Chinese or made there, even iPhones, so difficult to avoid. It seems that the reason Xiaomi are competitive is because they have very low overheads and only sell direct.

Thanks to all of you who've bothered to respond to my post. No urgency on my part and still reviewing the options. It's my birthday next month and Mrs POG may want to buy me a phone then. I'll let you know.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

Not worth it YT. I've been quoted about 150. Anyway, I fancy a change.

I think the main concern is that if the US imposes sanctions on China you might find no software updates on your phone. I had a Chinese phone and Trump threaten this so they downloaded their version of the US software e.g. Google very annoying as I has double of a lot of stuff .
