Hot from me ,
Anyone have experience with the processor on this ?
Someone was asking how this stands up to the Samsung A90 5G this morning.
I think the A90 wins but at this price its a ridiculous phone for the money .

Performance I'd say was OK, I'm a heavy user and it struggled at times, I have a lot of tabs open at any one time though.

I must say though I don't game, never have, so hopefully someone can answer your question a bit better

Love my Redmi Note 8 Pro! TBH, not altogether sure why anyone would buy the Redmi Note 9 Pro when there can be such an enormous price difference between the two phones (I paid £129 for mine).

I have a note 8 Pro, seems to be running well. Battery life is good, and is fast and smooth with various applications. The biggest downside for me is the display quality, but for a phone this cheap it is great value!!

*I have the "EU" specific device which seems to be a bit behind on the updates and still on Android 9, non hd Netflix does suck to be fair...

*The global rom does seem to receive more fixes and updates!

Is the poco still getting regular updates .
No one seems to mention it now ?

It got android 10 which is pretty decent and quite a few feature upgrades. It has April 2020 security patch too

Might wait and see what the EU shipping deals are like :P
Generally is a good idea to wait for some Amazon warehouse 20% off or eBay 20% off deal and then buy it hehe
@MrSwitch what's your opinion on the Note 8 Pro vs the Note 9 (not pro)? Particularly in bang for buck and camera quality? TIA!

I meant the original poco
As they have stopped updating the mi mix 3 and that's just over a year old

Yeah my comment about the updates was for the original poco... I think they have their own software team. The mix 3 5g is quite an exception for xiaomi I think. The k20 pro and xiaomi mi 9 etc. are all well updated. Same for original poco too.

Exception or not people paid over £400 just months ago for a phone they have thrown to waste side . Even Samsungs A series budget phones have been promised 3 years of updates and apples 5 year promise .
Its probably one of the reasons they charge stupid money for the phones .
MrSwitch12/05/2020 14:55

9s I think. That's the "basic" version of the 9 Pro, if I understand correctly?

There's the note 9, Note 9s and nite 9 pro.

The 9s in my opinion being the better phone

If i can get Gearbest to honour the $20 off Poco F2 Pro coupon they gave everyone about a week ago i might go for it.
Luv mine, battery is a dream and eats everything I've thrown at it to date. Steal at this price!

I tried, it doesn't apply at checkout.

I've sent a support ticket about it. Bit useless giving us a coupon and then not being able to use it.

Does the 8 pro have led notifications?
Trilink12/05/2020 16:59

Does the 8 pro have led notifications?


Yes, very small light, but it does.
Will the NFC work in the UK ?

Yes but just the one white LED for everything

I bought mine from Xiaomi UK (the global version) . It clearly has NFC in the menu. As I don't do banking on my phone, I'm not sure how to confirm that it definitively works.
MrSwitch12/05/2020 17:13
