This review is a joke. I paid $224: Australian. It has g90t choosey. Stop bashing Mediatek. I bought this because it has the g90t rather than the Snapdragon 710. Eat sh!t. ! This phone has 500 nits. It is gorgeous, and the miui 12 works well integrating with the Android 10 it has upgraded to. One just needs to know WHAT THEY ARE DOING. Great job Xiaomi! Great job Umidigi! Excellent work Mediatek, the market leader soc sales.
