No. Cheap and often all apart. Better off getting a new OnePlus.

Definitely! I have a phone (Redmi 3s) and several other gadgets. And the quality is excellent and the price very good. I think it's one of the few Chinese brands where you get real quality.

Which Android ROM are you using? I'm on xiaomi.eu custom rom, but GPS sucks. Also random screen freezes.

But yea, with the phone itself I'm quite satisfied, most of the other people I know are satisfied as well. So if you find it's worth the price - take it.

I find that Huawei and Oppo are better than Xiaomi in term of durability and quality. If you just wanna go for cheaper one with shorter lifespan, then Xiaomi should be fine. I bought Xiaomi for my parents because it's easy to use for senior citizens...

I use:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/xiaomi-...s-t3532085

It still has some small bugs but overall stability is very good.
