Migrating back to Xiaomi smartphone

After some hours, days of review/research the winner is Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite
My current Sony Xperia XZ 2 https://www.gsmarena.com/sony_xperia_xz2-9081.php was great during 2 years of usage, but instead having IP68 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IP_Code the Rotate a Brightness adaptation doesn’t work anymore 😦
My research candidates were OnePlus 7T (great HW and UI), Nokia 7.2 (due Android One participation) and Pixel 4
OnePlus folded due still high price, Nokia, because of the UI of bottom navigation and Google Pixel 4 is too expensive for the included hardware.

So Xiaomi became the winner due hardware, but also due previous good experience. My son inherited the Xiaomi Redmi 4A https://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_redmi_4a-8420.php from me and after his “caring” usage (5 year old) the phone still works (also the adaptive brightness and rotate)


Hope that Android Auto will work properly.

Bought Xiaomi Mi Band 2

On 7th July a decided to buy a Xiaomi Mi Band 2 at http://fitnaramok.sk/produkt/mi-band-2/

Xiaomi Mi Band 2

My main usage is:

  • sleep tracking
  • steps counting a.k.a. pedometer

The heart rate monitor isn’t the best, but for the bands price it’s great deal.
The new updated Android app looks great.
