    Why do you dislike MIUI?
    I actually like the MIUI (7*) on my Mi 5 - it has a modified, iOS influenced UI, but doesn't really have Bloatware; it's kinda stock in that regard with the addition of actually useful apps, like QR Scanner, Voice Recorder and Mi Drop for sharing files with the PC. :)
    The only negative thing I dealt with, is the RAM management, I guess - it sometimes just kills apps you don't want to be killed, like Spotify. But there's a fix for that and it may have got fixed already in newer versions.
    * yeah, already old version, but I got some modified ROM unfortunately for which I would need to unlock the bootloader for updating, which I didn't care about then

    jsyk Linus, in Mandarin Chinese the "X" is pronounced as an "sh" sound (there's 2 distinct "sh" sounds, x is done with your tongue more forward in the mouth, sh is towards the back (same with j vs zh, and q vs ch), so it's pronounced more like "shao-mi"

    Let's see how that sliding mechanism holds up after a few drops and how will it slide in a case? Cheap Android garbage with a wannabe Apple design. Google and Samsung are where it's at for Android. Otherwise, nothing touches iOS.

    Is Oxygen OS is miles ahead of anything? its smooth and fluid and stock like with a little twist on top. It offers not alot and not much extra and that's it. Never buy the Chinese version of a Xiaomi phone it comes with bloat. I love the extras you get but it's Android so there's the beauty choice

    The only reason I don`t buy android phones anymore is that I don`t want to have nameless piece of plastic that nobody cares about 1 month after it`s release and it goes on heavy discounts because those things are just sitting on shelves forever.
    I got Iphone X 8 months ago and I have never been happier using phone and also while looking at its current value ( which is like 90% of retail price).
    If you really start focusing on big picture - you can see that android phones are just flooding the market, interest to them is lost like 1-2 months after release and then nobody cares.
    Who cares about previous samsung galaxy? And what is 2nd hand maket price on that?
    It doesn`t matter that much what the start price is if it is preserved, much worse if something was "good value" at the time of purchase but then becomes worthless.
