Video is normal, you probably didn't apply a config file for the portrait to work.
You can try the ones you quoted
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by genius43(m): 4:29pm On May 23|
I clearly stated you should alternate between the three. The one that has night in it name should be best for night sight. But test and settle for your best. I don't yes a RN8 Pro to say this is the best. But from comments the multiverse of colors is best for normal shots not sure of night sight though

Don't blame Qualcomm, they are just enjoying the ride. The blame should rest squarely on Mediatek and the other SoC manufacturers. In the desktop PC space AMD spent approximately ten (10) years in the wilderness of obscurity and lack of competitiveness before they could make a breakthrough. Right now AMD are giving Intel some seriously stiff competition, even to the point of undercutting many of Intel's hitherto untouchable offerings. And guess who is benefitting? The end user, Intel can no longer price their products as they used to.
It is left to Mediatek (and the others) to give Qualcomm the AMD shock treatment.

Should I go for redmi 8 or realme c3
What phone will u recommend for me under 50k
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by Jemerson: 4:45pm On May 23|
Yes. One typical example.
Snapdragon 650 supporrted QC 2.0. but due to licensing costs, Xiaomi only enabled QC 1.0. however, folks were able to unlock bootloader and flash CyanogenMod™ to get the QC 2.0.
So you see, flashing custom rom helped them to determine if their phone was powerful or not
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by Bahddo(m): 5:14pm On May 23|
Jemerson:crap. Anyone with internet access can pretty much see what their phone's SoC is capable of, from detailed specifications. Those who cook custom ROM can do so because they ALREADY KNOW the hardware has the capability to support a desired functionality.
Custom ROM doesn't not help you find out anything you cannot find out without it, unless of course you don't bother finding out stuff. You won't ever DISCOVER that your midrange device is actually a high-end device because you flashed custom ROM. Custom ROMS do not determine how powerful your device/chipset is, much less being 'the way to truly find out' as the other dude claimed.
You don't need to flash custom ROM into the Samsung Galaxy S20 to know that it's faaaaaaaar better than the Infinix Note 7.

My sister just got a xiaomi note 8 pro but the battery has been draining ever since. We used up about 4% just to set up the phone alone. We spent 3hrs on the phone with just browsing and downloading system update and now the phone has gotten to 89%. Is this normal for a 4500mah battery?
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by olayinkajnr(m): 5:16pm On May 23|
No be lie. I'm with a Teclast M30 tablet. Build is awesome and strong. But you see ehn, the chipset in it will frustrate someone's life.
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by fibonacci2526: 5:18pm On May 23|
Perfectly normal. Give it 2-3days for the system to stabilise.
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by GrandMufti: 5:23pm On May 23|
Yes I remembered this scenario. The Indians didn't find it funny.
Mehn I miss that CyanogenMod. Though it's now Lineage OS
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by GrandMufti: 5:28pm On May 23|
I can vouche for redmi note 3pro because I used it. It was A very well documented issue then. Infact, that was what brought my attention to tweaking of phones.
Xiaomi had a choice of keeping the cost down or paying extra bucks for QC. They choice the former and it paid off.
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by GrandMufti: 5:30pm On May 23|
It is well
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by Bahddo(m): 5:31pm On May 23|
GrandMufti:so you are saying if there was no custom ROM, no one would have ever known the SoC supports QC 2.0?
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by jboixxx: 5:32pm On May 23|
olayinkajnr:We go come chop that one too.

|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by GrandMufti: 5:43pm On May 23|
How do you convince the Indians that the SoC is QC capable when they can't even experience it?
It was on Qualcomm website. But it wasn't working on the phone, and no official comment by Xiaomi during and after the phone launch. Remember this was a phone that broke the Indian market.
Some Indians on gsmarena even said Xiaomi lied about the processor just to gain market in India.
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by GrandMufti: 5:45pm On May 23|
There are two models of C3, the one in the link has finger print, I'm not sure if that's what you saw. But Redmi 8 seems to be better than both in camera
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by Simran94(f): 5:45pm On May 23|
fibonacci2526:Okay thanks. I noticed it is the Android system that is taking up much battery consumption, what to do?
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by genius43(m): 5:46pm On May 23|
It will stabilise with time.
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by OHIsIManuEL(m): 5:50pm On May 23|
Simran94:3 hours for browsing and downloading system update and you still have 89% left and you say "the battery has been draining ever since"?
E dey okay
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by Bahddo(m): 5:58pm On May 23|
GrandMufti:ok, but that doesn't answer the question. Did it take a custom ROM before ANYONE knew that QC 2.0 was possible? Recall the bone of contention here...
ibawon:You agree that one has to flash custom ROM to know how strong or weak their phone is? That you can't know if you have a powerful or weak device if it's still running stock ROM?
Let's all flash Custom ROMs so we can REALLY KNOW if our phones are truly as powerful/weak as we think.
Alright. At this point, I don rest
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by festwiz(m): 6:08pm On May 23|
Thanks for the advice. I appreciate it.
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by festwiz(m): 6:12pm On May 23|
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by profsomebody(m): 6:14pm On May 23|
I have a China version RN7 with Chinese ROM, and I wish to replace it with global ROM. I'll appreciate if someone could point me to any resource that will help. Thanks

Xiaomi Tweaking thread
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by GrandMufti: 6:21pm On May 23|
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by tidedroid: 6:32pm On May 23|
Bahddo:and also surpassed by dimensity 1000 that iqoo used in one 300dollar phone and hopefully will be used by redmi note 10 pro.
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by GrandMufti: 6:36pm On May 23|
When you see your guy with a shaving stick, you don't go about asking him why he's holding a shaving stick. But when you see your 8 year old son with a shaving stick, a responsible father should demand answers.
Apply the same logic to chipsets.
You don't go about asking if a flagship chipset supports quick charge, you don't even bother to check specs if it supports it and Snapdragon does not even use it as it's selling point because by default it should.
But when you use quick charge as a selling point for a midrange SoC and at the end the phone ends up only fast charging, people will ask questions and seek for solutions.
That was the story of Redmi note 3 and SD 650
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by tidedroid: 6:40pm On May 23|
festwiz:Qualcomm won't change anything unless more phone manufacturers start using mtk products.its kind of like the amd/intel situation on laptops.even though amd's ryzen 4000 series are just better in almost every way and also more power efficient (7nm vs intel's 14nm) most laptops devs are still using intel in their flagship series and limiting amd to their midrange n budget lineup.Hopefully the change for Qualcomm will start with the intro of samsung and amds soc(if these one's don't get greedy themeselves) because Qualcomm basically ruined smartphone pricing this year with their overpriced soc forcing phone manufacturers to pay for 5g modems whether they need them or not.
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by Bahddo(m): 6:46pm On May 23|
GrandMufti:I don agree na. Let all those who use the Redmi Note 8 (for example) flash custom ROM to find out if their device is truly more powerful than the Redmi 8 or 8a. Custom ROM is the one true benchmark for phone/SoC performance.
|Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by Keiyadosh: 7:10pm On May 23|
Bahddo:on God this anti MTK bias on this thread get as e be....So someone using Snapdragon 439 will be laughing at me using G90T cause it is MTK...
