First faulty Xiaomi product for me. Wanted to give my wife a Mi Band 3 for Xmas last year but Gearbest had no stock of international versions so I paid more from Loot.
On Xmas day, the band was stone dead out of the box. For several charge cycles thereafter, it would only last a few days, whereas my band lasts 14 days most cycles. Eventually it got better and I forgot about it.
Fast forward to the last 2 weeks and battery drain is back and now touch responsive is useless and her band often requires multiple touches to wake the screen and it is losing 30-45min of time until it connects to mi Fit and resyncs the phone time.
Fortunately still within 6 months so have logged a warranty return with Loot. Hope the next one does not suffer the same as I see Loot's still selling third party stock...
One of the main complaints about Xiaomi (MIUI) is that it does not show the Notification icons when you have any. They pop up for maybe a minute and then vanish. This is mostly noticeable on phones with notches.
With mod above they do not disappear after a short time.
Maybe someone will find my experience interesting. Just got my Redmi 7 from from Geekbuying in China. Used Postbox Courier via Hongkong. Cost at Geekbuying was $204. Courier and import duties around R1 800, so total cost about R5000. MIA advertises it for around R4700, so buying local not so bad in this case.
