Good evening everyone.

I have been contemplating on the phone to get for the past one month now. I wanted to buy the Redmi note 8 pro but was unable to do that because I fell sick and the lockdown started.

I have gone through the Xiaomi reviews over and over again and the fear of few things has been keeping me from making the decision.
1) There has been complaints of some of the phones having network issues and some other minor issues I hear.
The whole tweaking to install Gcam and other stuffs that includes flashing or ROM or so.

The Note 9s is out but I have not seen anyone use it, so, I don't know if it would be a waste of money.


Then, someone advised that I should buy Samsung A70 or so. But I am looking at the fact that most Samsung phones have battery issues. They don't run on Android 10 and I wonder if it would be possible to get the updates after buying the phone.


I really don't want to waste money honestly.

My budget is 80-90k and I can increase it if possible..

If not Redmi note 9s, what better Xiaomi do you think I can get and not waste money?
Or should I just buy Samsung but I really I want to change brand too and the screen price is annoying too.

Specs that I am looking out for

Faster processor
Better battery life (I am an heavy user)
Best Camera
Android 10 and other updates that won't drain battery..
Type C charger and fast charging too

Kindly help me out please. Thank you very much

Trust me, Samsung is the only beast for you. if you are in lagos, you can get a brand new Samsung galaxy note 8 for around 100k.. I haven't actually ever used a Redmi device, so my advice might be one sided, but i am a heavy samsung fan. My previous phone was the galaxy not 8 actually, it was a beast before i got the galaxy note 10+. The screen quality is unmatched, The processor, The battery, and if you like fancy, Samsung is fancy. Heck i was contemplating btw the galaxy and iPhone back then, but now iphone 11 users literally can't stop looking at my phone. You budget can get you the galacy note 8. fast changing, good battery, an s pen, 8gb ram and damn beautiful. But the downside i would admit is that you should never let that phone fall undecided lipsrsealed . phones never fall from me so i can use one for a long time. But trust me, once it falls with its curved display, you should just start saving alot for a new screen (over 70k).

I'd advise you to wait till after the lockdown is over then buy redmi note 9s instead of the note 8 pro.
Note 9s manages to remain cool after playing games for hours, however the reverse is the case for the note 8 pro plus the difference in performance isn't that much sef, there was a youtube video shared on the xiaomi thread showing the comparison but i can't find it again.

I have used samsung and Xiaomi. I don't want to ever use Samsung again . Xiaomi phones are sweet,smooth,fast,etc.
I wanted to say "you're dumb" but I should ask first which Samsung have you used?

I've actually been think about getting Samsung s10e, please how's the battery like and getting it new or UK used which is preferable? Thanks in anticipation.

I haven't gotten mine yet due to this Lockdown, it's basically new since the seller hasn't used it up to a month.
The battery?
Eh 3100 MAH isn't a lot most heavy users claim to get 6-8hrs worth of screen time. I recommend you get a power bank cuz that's what I'm planning to do since I'm a heavy user.

UK used for a smartphone with such a small battery wouldn't be recommended in my opinion, if you can afford brand new it's 115k-130k
Fairly used( not more than a month) 100k-115k


Apart from that the phone is basically an S10 without the telephoto camera, size and battery (tested to last surprisingly better than S10)

so u are actually asking which is preferable, getting second hand(aka UK USED) or getting a new one which is better Bros let ur budget decide that for u. No time second hand product has been better than brand new

Yeah I've actually seen a lot of reviews about it too. The battery is actually the major reason why I needed to know if buying a fairly used makes sense, so please where did u get yours?

I get u 100% you'd want to spend wisely most times but at times you just have to dig deep if it's worth it.

Found a seller on jiji that resides in PH, sadly it's exynos varient.
If you're too sacred of the battery you could go the note 9 but from the reviews I have watched the s10e shockingly beat the note 9, seems to do better at processing battery power.

Oh well, Samsung isn't known for good batteries unless you're going for S10+ grin

Ikr, the funny thing is I'm not even a Samsung person, my redmi note 7 was stolen and getting another I had to just do a research on something that'll be top quality (to be used for a long time) and cheap too and actually that s10e is the perfect one there in my opinion judging by reviews too. I would welcome your opinions too please.

It's a powerful smartphone, it's even labeled as a flagship ship/ high end phone
Same camera with S10 just without telephoto
Same powerful processor
Basically everything is the same just a smaller battery and size.
I just want it so I can play games at the highest graphics cuz exynos 9820 na powerful something grin

But if you can get the SD855
shocked
Found someone selling it but the phone is single sim with a crack on the screen and camera.

Fear nor fi allow me buy am

Surprisingly, the price difference is not up to 50k. I even think the S10 lite is even more expensive considering the two devices were released 1yr apart.

It is, The 50k I even added is small.
Fairly used is 165k, that's the least I have seen.
S10lite is garbage, The phone doesn't have any IP rating meaning it isn't water resistant or even dust resistant.
Low brightness and low ppi

The s10e is better

Year doesn't matter, features do.
Like I said the S10 Lite has no IP rating at all, like no Water resistance, No dust resistance not even common splash resistance.
The ipp is low, the phone isn't even worth a mention.

The S10e battery shockingly outperforms the S10 by a few mins of SOT.
S10 just get extra camera and size, big for nothing grin

Also better memory options. In terms of battery, the extra 300mah difference will get sucked up by the QHD screen. But honestly, i still prefer the S10+. Been looking up options on ebay, 7.5-9/10 in terms of cosmetics, prices ranging from $395 to $450.

I feel lucky to have found this thread grin since we have a common goal, kindly carry me along if u find sweet deals, please. The best way to actually buy Samsung and other top expensive phones is to buy them a year after, they still maintain their quality and relevance.

Exactly, That QHD screen is a vampire.
Memory options don't matter, 128gb is more than enough, 6gb ram is almost Overkill

The S10+ is fucken perfect, I just wish the battery were bigger.
One part of me wants to buy this phone but man needs to spoil himself small grin
