For those of you who found the phone too slippery with the Xiaomi provided case, I ordered a few try. I wanted to have a better grip on the phone and to protect the exposed folded screen as the stock case doesn't allow you to set the phone face down.

I was diappointed in this case https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005004705319771.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.0.0.114c1802jWU4BR because it's frame was made of hard, brittle plastic that was slipprier than the stock case and because it looked like it would easily break during a fall.

This case https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005004674006349.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.0.0.114c1802jWU4BR was much better, with a semi-soft tactile grip. It protects front and back when folded.

I finally settled on this traditional flip case, however, https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005004685113190.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.0.0.114c1802jWU4BR as it is made of soft leather-like material and covers the front folded screen. When unfolded the flap that covers the folded screen 'parks' behind the unfolded screen and gives you a firm grip and makes a great stand for using the phone in landscape mode.

As an aside I also ordered the Xiaomi Mi Buds 4 noise cancelling earbuds https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005004641378951.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.0.0.37d81802YqnrQh. They provide better sound than my Samsung Galaxy Pro buds and they connect seemlessly with the device. At first I couldn't figure out how you get the app for them until I realized that it is backed into the MIUI 13.1 firmware. When you have the buds connected and go into the phone's Settings/Sound there is a dedicated app that appears to adust noise cancelling, equalizer, etc.

Nice.

I can't stand the brittle plastic frame that they want you to use on the front screen for the one I bought on amazon so I just don't use anything on the front.

The one thing I don't understand about every modern case is why they are made of such hard brittle plastic material. what happened to soft, grippy tpu/silicon cases that were the standard years ago? nobody makes cases like that anymore

I have the official folio case and it's OK, but wish it had a kickstand like the one in the box

Can you post pictures of different angles of your cases?

if anyone in the US is interested in either of these two cases



i'd get rid of them for less than I paid and you won't have to wait a month to get them from China. I've gotten so used to the case I got from Amazon decided and I'm not changing and have these now.
