  3. Gediminas on December 2, 2021 at 10:25 am

    Huawei P50 PRO is amazing but wait for 5G version to come. Why the hell 5G phones were banned anyway but not 4G?

  4. TheTechGeek on December 2, 2021 at 10:26 am

    Don’t buy Chinese
    Get samsung like everyone

  5. VAIJYANTI kinikar on December 2, 2021 at 10:29 am

  6. Le Pe on December 2, 2021 at 10:31 am

    I could have swear this was a rant about Samsung phones.

    MIUI got *A LOT* better (coming from a Xiaomi mi mix 2 daily user)

  9. mohamed ait oufela on December 2, 2021 at 10:31 am

    I have just got rid of my chinese phone Huawei , it must have been full of chinese spaywars.. how can we trust a communist dictator country’s products anymore.?
    Coronavirus is the only chinese product that worked perfectly….

  10. Mohammad Haque on December 2, 2021 at 10:32 am

    Countries dont matter, brands don’t matter. It’s all about the actual phone

  11. Gerald Laurence Zordilla on December 2, 2021 at 10:32 am

    MiUI 12 addressed his complaints almost all of it

  12. mskellyn07 on December 2, 2021 at 10:33 am

    Never trust the Chinese to make a product. Like come on. Everyone knows this.

  13. Jimmy Ibrahim on December 2, 2021 at 10:36 am

  16. P4RAD0X on December 2, 2021 at 10:37 am

    Because it’s great value for money

  17. whisky on December 2, 2021 at 10:39 am

    I buy Xiaomi phones because of low pricing. Don’t care about the looks ugly or beautiful, lacking features, or whatever fk as long as I can play some games and do business. I’ve compared most brands from the Gsmarena site checking the pricing of the phones on a few shopping sites and I can see a lot of similar spec phones are more expensive than Xiaomi. I might have missed something but maybe different countries cost differently, it’s cheap every time I buy it either low to high spec. No need to lecture me cuz I have bought lots of expensive phones until I learned about cheap Mi phones with similar specs from a few friends. I know Mi phones are fking annoying and I’m not defending it(well, I’m actually a PC techy person, not into phony stuff.) but still I’m poor and always accidentally break my phones so I have to stick with it.

  26. Pole Tooke on December 2, 2021 at 10:50 am

    They’re cooler. They actually innovate.

  27. TheRedMMOs on December 2, 2021 at 10:50 am

    Xiaomi’s Poco and Redmi are amazing budgets

  28. Linda Goins on December 2, 2021 at 10:50 am

    RIGHT JUST CHANGE YOUR PHONE NUMBER REGARDLESS OF WHAT KIND IT IS AND DON’T SHARE IT WITH STRANGERS/ REGARDLESS OF HOW MUCH U THINK YOU KNOW THEM.

  29. KopyKat81 on December 2, 2021 at 10:50 am

    I was thinking the same until I got a Oneplus 7 Pro. It’s beast!

  30. JIX89 on December 2, 2021 at 10:53 am

    I have a Motorola and I’m so glad, that it has almost stock android, only things addea are hardy removable widgets and gestures.

  31. Woah Dude on December 2, 2021 at 10:53 am

  34. L.A.C on December 2, 2021 at 11:03 am

    Chinese budget smartphones are so tempting!…but I feel so conflicted , b/c I don’t want the CCP to own my data.

  35. Faheem Productions on December 2, 2021 at 11:04 am

    Video Title should be "WHY you should NOT Buy a Chinese Phone?"

  36. MyurrDurr on December 2, 2021 at 11:05 am

    This is one of the phones for custom rom support 😀
    I have a pure android 10 rom on here and a port of gcam
    And it’s freaking amazing.

    The only thing I would wish for is a larger battery but everything else is incredible

  37. Star Shooting on December 2, 2021 at 11:05 am

    Buying a Chinese product is selling your soul to Satan …in the long last.

  38. thenormalone on December 2, 2021 at 11:06 am

    Haha this aged horribly

  39. RedBomb on December 2, 2021 at 11:06 am

    "Reason to not buy Chinese phones"

  40. Tanishq Choksi on December 2, 2021 at 11:09 am

    Miui is more worst in 2021 😂

  41. ric william on December 2, 2021 at 11:10 am

    Cons sounds like nit-picking

  42. Ishaan P.S on December 2, 2021 at 11:11 am

    MiUI
    before: very very bad, no proper grammer, bloated with unnessary software, too bad design

    Now (Miui 12):much MUCH better design, less bloat but has some useless apps, much better notification shade, feels soo fluid, has 99.9 proper grammer, dosent feel like a Chinese phone.

  43. Relf Morris on December 2, 2021 at 11:11 am

    why

  44. nicolapodgornik on December 2, 2021 at 11:13 am

  45. Lelouch Vi brittania on December 2, 2021 at 11:14 am

  46. Noah EVH on December 2, 2021 at 11:14 am

    Nowadays the miui software is way better than it was 2 years ago. It is extremely nice an satisfying to use.

  47. Kanishq Quotes on December 2, 2021 at 11:15 am

    Purchase these from india. They have Google play store
    However they do require an indian sim card to activate

  48. Josuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuke on December 2, 2021 at 11:15 am

    $390 for a black shark 3 in 2021 was still the best phone for me
