Yeah, this is why the mix 3 5G will be my last Xiaomi device.
Budget phones are updated before flagships
No support for Google Arcore
No widevine L1 support
Imagine calling this a "flagship" device then do this

Is the Mix 3 5G really a flagship? I've always viewed the Mix line as more of an experimental testbed. Given the hardware peculiarities and the extra 5G drivers involved, it's probably also more time-consuming to keep it current, not to mention the low sales numbers which mean it makes more sense to update the mass-market phones first. Hard to call a phone a "flagship" if it only costs $500 and doesn't have wireless charging, imo.

Not to mention that this phone is being sold internationally

Yes, in theory, but just like 5G itself, it's mostly just marketing hype, used to try to advance the Xiaomi brand. In the UK last week, the only place I could find it was in the Mi store and some O2 stores, the market is miniscule compared to the other devices they sell. Impressed though everybody always is when I whip out my phone to show them, I've yet to find anyone else IRL who's even heard of Xiaomi.

Does the mix 3 5g not have wireless charging? Pretty rubbish if not when the mix 3 does.

Are you being sarcastic regarding the wireless charging?

Sarcastic? No. My last three phones have had wireless charging, I wouldn't buy one without it, and I rarely plug my phone into a cable. I have no idea what the CEO of OnePlus is babbling about, but their phones are completely off my radar until they sort their act out.

Yeah I guess you're right. I had phones with wireless charging but I was only using it to show off... Dunno, I hope one day we get true wireless charging like having a dedicated room where the devices charge without having to place them on a plate

    The 5G model is also missing a bunch of LTE bands that the original device has. For the foreseeable future, LTE performance is far more important to me than 5G.

    Xiaomi really screwed both sets of customers when they released the 5G. It was obviously released mostly for bragging rights about 5G, it hasn't sold in large numbers so there's no urgency to support it with new software releases, and at the same time they managed to make all the original purchasers feel like they'd bought an obsolete device that was superseded a couple of months later.

    Hey invisible wave,

    Which LTE bands is the 5G missing? Do you have any info about that?

    For me on the global ROM the LTE performance in the countryside is a bit poor and 5g is disabled in Vodafone de. Thinking to switch to the EU or vf rom


    Mi Mix 3 4G: 1(2100), 2(1900), 3(1800), 4(1700/2100), 5(850), 7(2600), 8(900), 12(700), 13(700), 17(700), 18(800), 19(800), 20(800), 25(1900), 26(850), 28(700), 29(700), 30(2300), 34(2000), 38(2600), 39(1900), 40(2300), 41(2500), 66(1700/2100

    Mi Mix 3 5G: 1(2100), 2(1900), 3(1800), 4(1700/2100), 5(850), 7(2600), 8(900), 20(800), 28(700), 34(2000), 38(2600), 39(1900), 40(2300), 41(2500)

    The 5G is also NSA only, I believe. Switching roms won't change the band coverage. Plus no wireless charging which makes it a non-starter for me.
