Thanks guys. I'm back on air after option 2. Wipe data :(
Lost all info on phone that was not backed up. Mainly pics and a few notes
Just a pain to log into everything again and to get that familiar feel back after forgetting half the tricks you used to get there.

As a previous owner of a pure Android phone (Mi A1) and now proud owner of Miui again (Mi Max 3), I can safely say I'll never go pure Android again. Love the in built Miui features too much, especially in built call recording.

My vote for your dilemma would be the Poco

Bought my 128/6 on a 11.11 special for $309 over at Gearbest. Seen Gearbest have the 6/64 for $298-$310 on sales every now and then. You can also try ALi Express but here I would say tread carefull and read shop reviews before you buy. Never bought a phone on Ali yet but have mixed results on things I did buy.

Must also add was lucky to buy when Aramex was charging normal prices, for now I would recommend DHL instead.

I concur.

Owned a Mi A2 for 2-3 months before I got rid of it in exchange for my the Poco. What drove me nuts on pure Android was lack of features (I got use to on my Mi 5 before A2 lite). Pure Android is just that, its clean and empty and some people might prefer that. I prefer things like dual apps (2 X whatsapp 1 for each sim) and so on.

Edit: what do you know: https://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_009492488405.html?wid=1349303

Exact price I paid for mine.

You telling me, it was the reason I bought it before. I literally just bought a Mi A2 lite 4/32 for $270 months before my Poco, when I saw the Poco for that price I went f it, and clicked buy on the same day.

How are you guys dealing with notifications?
Incoming notification icons disappear after a few seconds from the notification bar. It's quite annoying!
