OK so time for an upgrade of my Redmi 9C.
Choices are:
Mi 11 Lite vs Redmi Note 10 Pro vs Mi 11 Lite 5G.
All are 128G / 6G and dual SIM.
It seems that the only real difference is that the Mi 11 Lite 5G has NFC, which I kinda want, not too fazed about 5G (I haven't been vaccinated yet :sneaky:).
Is there something else that I ought to be looking at in this price range?
Which would you choose and why?
Where will you get the Mi 11 from? Locally?

Which one did you get? I am looking at this, makes no mention of it:
Says here that it does have NFC: https://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_redmi_note_10_pro-10662.php
Maybe the other one is a Chinese version

EDIT: Nope, also have NFC: https://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_redmi_note_10_pro_(china)-10930.php

That's expensive. Buy from Mia (or Takealot when they get stock), buy me a case of beer and you are still about R1500 up

I would, but it's even cheaper at Loot:

Recommended and ordered the Note 10 Pro from MIA for my bro after comparing a lot of different devices. Custom ROM development is also looking well underway and the only way to use Xiaomi devices (imo).

7 day bootloader unlock timer nearly done, then it's time to flash and start using it :cool:
Display is gorgeous btw.

What's the major difference between this....


And the Note Pro 10 besides camera. I see pixel density is the same.
Processor is significantly worse and the display isn't AMOLED nor high refreshrate. Avoid.
Get the Note10 Pro directly from Xiaomi Africa:

Let me just say again, Xiaomi really needs to up their naming standards. It's ridiculous that they sell phones with a specific name, but then have different processers and other specs.

I knew I struggled to be sure I bought the right phone eg.with Snapdragon 732 and amoled screen, etc.
