    Post Random mobile network dissconnect when using GPS navigation?

    Updates: Network Reset - didn't help Flashing Official Global ROM 12.5.2 - didn't help I am now thinking it is maybe a hardware problem... but it is still strange that immediately after restart, it will work fine for at least few hours (even few days sometimes). Also still cannot figure how...

    Post Google Assitant notifications not showing after MIUI 12

    It is and as I said - I do get sound notification and "G" icon on the Always On Display, but after unlocking the phone - there is no notification at all (what the reminder was about for example). I read suggestion that disabling the global dark mode helps - well - it didn't.

    Ah, posted by mistake here, but in this case I am almost sure it will not matter if the device is K20 or K20 pro. My not stock launcher actually improves the situation a bit (on the stock, I am NOT getting ANY notification, not sound and not icon on the AOD)... Still, thanks - you are right...

    Post 256gb pro for £329, anything I need to be aware of?

    Are you referring to K20 pro? If so and since you are quoting the price in GBP - you should be aware that some mobile service 4G bands are not supported in the UK by this device - check if that is the case with your provider. Else the price seems reasonable to me. Changing the ROM shouldn't be...

    Post Standby drain

    K20 pro (stock) + Mi Band 4 connected all the time... I was getting 5-7% overnight drain until I realized that it is whatsapp that was scheduled to backup every night, changed it to weekly and tonight it dropped only 1% for about 8 hours.

    Post Multitasking/RAM

    You can try by disabling MIUI optimisation from developer options. I did and looks like most of my apps are staying in the memory until I close them (but not games, I am talking of google maps, Facebook, browser, etc.).

    Post Redmi K20 Pro [MIUI 11 11.0.5.0 | 10.4.6.0 | 12.1.16 ,Unlock Bootloader,TWRP,ROOT]

    If I may ask a noob question: I don't need TWRP and root, but only to need to change from China to India (Global) ROM, can I only: 1. Unlock 2. Use MiFlash tool to flash - first Recovery (india) and then Fastboot (india) That will effectively change to Global ROM and allow OTA updates?

    Feels like I am talking to myself but... I think I figured out the battery life mystery -> looks like that touch to wake gets enabled after restart dispute that it says "OFF" in the Gear Settings and hence the poor battery life... So after restart or power off, one has to go to Gear Settings...

    On 5.1.1 there was option to disable WiFi. I am switching back to MEC23U: Gear2_Wear6_Rel6 from the first page: March 4, 2016: https://mega.nz/#!QQwXQKCD!U-y82wTuB...GWtEXMZ6TPikQU On latest Build No. MWD48B - the battery life is similar to MEC23U, but MWD48B is more unstable for me.
