New cell phone

Post by toxicavenger » Mon Oct 15, 2018 8:30 am

Everyday there are new and better cell phones for the price being released in India/Europe/Asia. For years I have always bought a cell phone over there and used them in the US, if they have the same bands this is possible. The cost of phones in the US are ridiculous, and they have a freaking monopoly here. And no way in hell am I leasing a phone from a company.

Either way I just in the Xaomi Mix 2s. Dopest phone I have ever used hands down.

Right now for sale at $399 https://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_1698637.html

One of the best reviewers in the bis imo


The only issue is if you are a guy who owns a phone for over 3-5 years you might need to pass on overseas phones. They don't always get updates. Xaomi is not one of them though.

I like this. Too bad it isn’t compatible with a Verizon.

Verizon is a whole different discussion. Even if a phone is compatible with there network they are next to impossible to add a phone they don't support to it.

Some hacks though https://forum.xda-developers.com/xiaomi ... 1546/page6
