    Xiaomi!. Are not messing about this year and have turned up with a loaded gun

    K40
    K40 Pro

    xiaomi-k40-pro-2.jpg

    Next week will see the Poco F3 hit the market at £225. Which is less than the Poco F2 Pro promotion price. Glass and plastic over alloy states a YT reviewer will see alot.of interest in this one. This should cripple top/ low end sales for alot of oems and OPPO/Realme will be hurriedly putting together a reply. 😂😂😂

    With the OP9 and headphones starting at £600+, one must assume OP are not looking to sell many or are depending on fan loyalty in India and the US.

    P40 series is Huawei ofc btw, but even so they are smashing it..

    I'm in the market for a new phone now having smashed my ROG 2 critically but am personally ruling out Xiaomi because of the software. It keeps coming back to the ROG 3 for me.

    Need a massive battery, good speakers, 90hz amoled (always kept in on 90 didn't notice enough difference on 120 to justify battery hit). I like the look of a few Samsung's but the battery is just too small for me.

    P40 Pro on the brain, I'm still hunting one down. It will be the perfect non Google 5G device to keep me going for awhlie.

    Don't forget Mon, 8am, £250, Poco F3, A..

    It's not so bad. Massive support for custom ROMs as well. Using a Mi 9T Pro right now and all stock. That is odd for someone like me, believe me.:rolleyes:

    I'm using a MiMax 3 myself now and I actually love the look of the new MIUI. Its really purely the untameable background processes that get me. I get that Google are spying but i can do without another entity up to the same crap if I can stop it. They don't even allow you to see running services.

    Hmm that does sound good. I must say software wise my P20 pro was maybe my favourite. It looked so damn nice (with my theme especially). No google I have to try out still, must be awesome for battery life and privacy

    I'm just rocking my MiMax 3 since smashing my ROG and have no problem for now to be honest. Screen size and battery are good but waiting to pull the trigger on anything new.

    I'll probably just get the ROG 3. Wanna avoid the 888 generation anyway.

    Did you see the Mi 11 deal today?
    2 year contract for under £600 I couldnt resist, with my usual juggling the actual device price meant I had to take a look. Hot or not I can shift it on without a loss.

    The P40 Pro is mega, performance and fluency is excellent, side by side with the P30P there is a visable differance and camera performance has gone up another 2 notches.
