Yes, but it's not running ZenUI as well.
In short, not under Android One program, but it's running stock android.

Just got the RN5. I'm interested in unlocking the bootloader first because I read that they might or might not reimplement the 15 day wait time in future. That won't be ideal if I'm already using the phone.

Is there any cons to unlocking it first? not planning to flash roms yet cause I'd like to try out MIUI for a while first.

Looking forward to hear the opinions of XM sifu's notworthy.gif

Noted. I usually use CIMB and MBB app though.

QUOTE(Smackers @ Jun 6 2018, 04:20 PM)
No issues for unlocked bootloader phones using bank apps. Just dont root your phone, some bank apps might not launch.
*
Ok. What about warranty?
From what I understand:

unlock bootloader, stock rom = warranty
unlock booloader, custom rom = no warranty

is that correct?


Sorry if the questions are obvious, first time on android nod.gif

I'm not sure or heard that unlocking bootloader will void warranty.

QUOTE(Maverick_Code @ Jun 6 2018, 05:28 PM)
unlocking the bootloader does not void warranty.

other manufacturers used to make that excuse. but xiaomi does not do that. to the best of my knowledge

Thanks for the replies. I've unlocked the bootloader and updated OTA to 9.5.13.

So far so good!

actually, can buy at goshop. They're having promo 15% off [ZEROGST15].

64GB ROM + 4GB price after dc = RM755.65

Edit: ZEROGST15 can't be used for the phone now. ZEROGST12 is the best code to use for now. price is at about 780

Is goshop the merchant owned by Astro? Malaysia set with Xiaomi warranty.

Should be under Astro, not too sure on the ownership of the site. It handles their TV shopping etc though.

I bought it from here, comes with the EIN sticker + checked the IMEI; it's Malaysia set.

Seems like the promo code [ZEROGST15] is not applicable for this product anymore.

Oh, that's a bummer.
Then your best bet is ZEROGST12 for 12% discount. still in the RM780~ range .

I need a protective case, the phone feels fragile to me, maybe my hands too small for the phone size.  Recommend me some case from AliExpress please, not those thin TPU ones like the stock case!  Thanks!
How much?  Got link?  Is it TPU?  Thick or thin?  Thanks.

i'm also looking for one. Currently considering these 2 and looking out for more.

Using 2 sims, MIUI Optimization off and memory optimization off.

Pretty good, my average is about 1 day 10hours +-8 hours SOT. No games though.

On a side note.. what mail app do you guys use for hotmail? I can't seem to find an app that push mail instantly like my previous iPhone 5 [stock mail app].
Even the android Outlook app only works sometimes.

Is battery saver turned on?

You can do 2 things
1. Goto settings>battery>choose apps> app of your choice - no restrictions
2. Goto recent apps>swipe down the said app to lock it

Let us know if it works.

1. Tried a few days before my previous comment. No dice.
2. Will try now.


So I have no choice but to lock it in background?
How does Gmail handle their push? I don't need to have it locked in the background confused.gif

Just add your hotmail account to gmail app. Add under exchange and office 365 account not outlook/hotmail/live account. That's what I do.

Edit: I saw you turned off miui optimization/memory optimization? I advise you turn it back on, that's bad advice from the websites. Bugs start happening and used to cause my older miui phone to lag bad after a while.

Also I dunno if it's the downgrade to 9.5.6 or because I uninstalled miui analytics/msa through adb, no more standby drain. Maybe the security patch got issue, I read one plus with latest patch also got standby issue.

It.. actually worked! AND there's push too!! Thank you so much for the simple solution rclxm9.gif

Regarding the optimization, do you mean to turn them both on or one of them in particular?
From what I've read though, is that the system handles memory closer to how it's handled on stock OS. Which means it'll only force close apps when full or close to full. Could that be the cause of your lag?

Here's what I found regarding MIUI optimization on MI Forum


I've yet to debloat but will do it after trying out MIUI 10.
