    My wife's Ulefone Note 9P received an OTA update from Android 10 to 11 about a week ago, and Yesterday received the January security update. That may be a first for a cheap Chinese phone. I am impressed.

    Those updates were meant for my top spec Xiaomi. Someone misread the delivery instructions. :thinking:

    Give them back! :mad:

    Security updates are not bad, November, but it's on 1 August Play Services, which apparently is down to Google.

    I'll turn my back, you return them and we'll say no more :cool: :rolleyes:

    :)

    Yeh, unpredictable updates for China phones(except for Huawei). That's one reason why I use a Samsung now.

    I'm holding my criticism of Xiaomi in case they eventually update in February. Fantastic phone otherwise, but the last few days a lot of Google services and account access were unavailable through mobile data, strangely.

    According to a good reviewer (Tech Tablets) they are now churning out too many models to finalise the software correctly on many, and are not releasing fixes. I hope it's a temporary thing. At least Xiaomi branded models have a Samsung equivalent updates promise now.

    Also for interest the Snapdragon 8 gen 1 on the new Oneplus 10 Pro and Xiaomi 12 Pro is overheating and dropping like crazy ala the Snapdragon 810 so it may be one to avoid.

    I think I could live with my Moto E6+, which I hardly use, as a daily - so an inexpensive Ulephone sounds a good deal.

    I was thinking of trying to trade both my Xiaomi models and get a Galaxy A52s 5g.

    Or maybe too many diverse products? Thinking this, while looking at my Xiaomi(Mi branded) digital bathroom scale, that was a gift from the school last year. And in the local village they just opened yet another Xiaomi(Mi)electric scooter store concession.

    Yes. They have a load of things like e-scooters and smart things on the Mi. com/ uk website / app.
