What's the superior mobile. This @ £155 or the half price A2 @ £157?
I'll be coming from a Moto G4 plus.

From what Switchy says, probably the Note 7. Unless you hate MIUI or need more space then Mi A2 for stock Android. Might be best to use a site like gsmarena to compare both phones against your G4. Imo Xiaomi is the new Motorola when it comes to great value and decent specs.

I'd buy the note 7, better (arguably) cameras, a lot better battery life.

I did the comparison actually. I guess anything recent should blow my 2016 moto out the water.
I just haven't kept up with mobiles so wanted opinions. I really like the idea of Android One. But I guess performance should override my feelings about that.

Xiaomi, just need a MIUI on/off switch, would save a lot of hassle. No doubt increase sales dramatically too.

I was a big fan of the Moto G series, they were nice reasonably priced phones in their time.

It was my first moto.
Three years of screen burn and not realising how important a compass is convinced me not to give them a second chance
Its a great phone and I am very happy with mine.

The downside is the screen scratches very easily (I came from being an iphone user (5,6,7,8) that didn't really scratch)

I would strongly recommend a screen protector, as keys in the pocket are enough to leave bad scratches.
This seller ships from France BTW. Or has done for my orders.
Good deal.

I don't mind miui, think it's one of the better ones, smooth, looks good with little quirks, one ui is good, but looks dated and cartoonish, emui is good but again looks like a 12 year old created it, and kills my apps to death btw.

Oneplus and stock are pretty boring to me.

Wiyaye, give me her number an I'll give her one?
I recently took the dive and placed a rom on my Xiaomi Note 5 (Pixel Experience) it has totally transformed the phone to me, when it was Miui I couldn't really use it daily as it was SO laggy, I just used it as a media device....Now though it absolutely flies.

It is quite a bit of a process with Xiaomi, having to wait a week for them to unlock the Bootloader, but well worth doing so if intending to use their Miui phones long term.

I had not rooted a phone since about 2015 and found the process a bit tricky, and found some instruction videos on YouTube missing steps, etc. But with those and the XDA guide I got there

I've never used miui on a phone with a lesser processor, always on flagship phones with flagship processors, so I wouldn't know long term the effects it has on the slower processors, good info tho mate, cheers

If you mean will Xiaomi replace a broken screen for free then the answer is no.

My phone when I'm out, lives in one pocket, that never has anything else in it, especially keys or coins, still looks like new after 4 years (yeah I know, I need a new one!). I hate screen protectors, so it's the simplest way to keep it in good nick.

Can't guarantee it, but I don't think it does anymore. Xiaomi actually seems to encourage the unlocking of the bootloader, I believe they provide software to do it on their website.

I read some place that it's an EU law that stopped manufacturers dodging out of warranty on the grounds of people using other ROMs, if it's true, finally the EU has found it's true purpose in life.

Poss No micro sdcard slot it seems for MI A2 ?
Definitely no micro SD card on A2. Not an issue for me as all my media is on Google Photos, and so 64gb would be plenty. 128gb is 50% off on their site too though for those that need more.

I personally dislike using SD cards, but I'd still like a phone to have one just incase I needed it!

Would that make the warranty void come brexit?
Ooohhhh now that's an interesting question! I think from memory EU law was largely written into UK law, but I'm relying on creaky brain cells on that one.

Maybe you'd find an answer here email.number10.gov.uk but I wouldn't hold your breath.

Do you have a link to the instructions you used? Would like to give it a try. But last time I replaced a rom was 10 years ago.

I think it may be the same process for the Note 7 listed here, so I will post the XDA guide to unlocking the Bootloader (on the Note 5 pro)... Hopefully also shows how rather complicated it all is with these phones (but worth it)...have a good Google about for sure...

(This is Most Definitely NOT a Definite Guide... It's very general.indeed, I don't take any responsibility, etc, and I am rather tired too )

Make sure your model is correct (if a global one, as most folk will have in the UK, ithe Note 5 (sometimes called a Note 5 Pro) is called a "Whyred"...Google about for info on this if unsure.

You will need your PC, and I think an SD Card is needed too (it was the way I did it, and probably preferable... I used an old 16gb one I was not using and formatted it for the process)

(First you have to sign up your phone to a Miui account if not already done so, then download the Unlock Tool to your PC, (and follow instruction)...and be prepared to wait a week...in the meantime can use your phone as normal etc.)...

forum.xda-developers.com/red…685

Then, a week later, when Boot Loader is Unlocked you need to install a recovery (good old TwRP from the old days of 2015 seems fine, worked for me), and then root (these days it's something.called Magisk I think does it)... Look up info on this (you will have a week to do so anyway)... I don't know how I did that part and can't find an XDA link at the.moment, I think it was a combo of Some YouTube videos and XDA.

Anyhow,
I would then advise using the Pixel Experience Rom to flash onto it when all fine, as it is all in one (no Gapps to add, etc) and also it is sending out regular updates which are simple to install (like a regular firmware phone update), and looks like Google 10 is coming to it soon. If you Google "Pixel Experience XDA Note 5 Pro" you should get the Thread on it with instructions etc.

Also, when it is finally done you will probably think, " that was a lot easier than the instructions seemed to make out", as I did, but wise to follow them closely and confirm each step.and all.will be cool.

God I went on a bit there...

Just to note that the Note 7 also has the Google Experience Rom thing available (I didn't realise how choosy they were, no Sony, only a couple of Samsung, but loads of Xiaomi phones can try it, tempted to dig out my Redmi 4x which was a great little phone)...

download.pixelexperience.org/

Simple search to see if your phone can get it.

Nice deal Mike, was looking at getting this for £173 on Amazon but thought I could do better on price, & looks like I was right!

Very tempted by a Chinese ROM Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro 128GB from their store on Aliexpress though, £155, £176 (obviously both prices about £2.50 less if you make a new account) if you go for DHL delivery which covers you against customs & gives you delivery in 2 weeks... aliexpress.com/ite…6TD

Saw a comparison of the Note 7 & Note 7 pro on Youtube & appreciate how much better the Pro is now. Not sure if the 'one-year warranty (China Warranty Service) or One-year AliExpress warranty (Local Warranty Service).' is actually worth a damn though, or if I wouldn;t be covered in the UK.
Anyone received theirs yet? Ordered on the 19th, just curious as to how long to expect.
