I maybe in the market for a new phone soon. I fancy treating myself. Never ever have I bought a brand new phone for myself.
Always had hand-me-downs. Anyway I have been looking on Amazon these past couple of days and came across this one:


Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro​

Great price but, remember, you may be in direct contact with the Chinese Communist Party. :eek:

Good price for a phone with those specs, although I'm a little wary after my experience with Huawei - as they were banned from using Google apps not that long after I bought it (I was ok, but the updates were minimal). I do like Xiaomi products though, but worth bearing the risk of them falling foul of sanctions for software updates.

Hmmm Dunno. Battery life and software issues. Software updates can be a problem too

I dunno now tbh. I will probs give it some more thought before taking the plunge!

At the price it is a steal really! However, in USA Main carriers are not offering this brand of phone, one can only buy it unlocked.

My Chinese Ulephone has never had any problems with updates or any Google apps including the Play Store. :p
