    What is your take on Honor 7X versus these two phones from Xiaomi?

    Mi A1 is a solid contender with dual cameras, clean AndroidOne software experience from Google, great build quality.

    Redmi 5 Plus has a slightly larger screen and a massive battery.

    Also Xiaomi devices have 4GB RAM and Snapdragon 625.

    I got my son a Mi A1 last week exchanging for his old phone . I have not used the other two phones. I preferred the Mi A1 over the 5 plus as it has a clean stock Android experience and promise of regular updates. The phone received the Nov security patch while setting it up and Dec security patch 2 days ago. The phone, so far, is working fine and has no lags . My son has not used it a lot but he seems to be satisfied with it.

    That's great to hear. I had the Mi A1 for a few weeks earlier this year and enjoyed it. Luckily one of the few Chinese devices to get LTE on TMO and not HSPA/H+ data speeds.

    We are in India and here phones are unlocked.
    Mi is testing the Oreo beta in India and I hope the phone gets Oreo update at the end of this month before he goes back for his semester.

    Good to hear. Lte is a public standard so anyone can implement it without paying a licensing fee.

    Besides Mi Mix, Mix 2, Mi Note 2 and Mi A1 the only non Huawei, ZTE phone that got LTE.

    Other Chinese brands such as Meizu, Leagoo, Elephone, Oukitel etc are no go for LTE in USA on TMO and ATT.

    Ah ok. Thanks for the clarification. It makes sense though as why would they provide support for lte if the device isn't sold here?

    Yup. But it's nice to get some phones to try out here and if they get LTE. Mi Mix series is really a great device, not sold in USA.

    That's not bad. at least you get volte. Not many unlocked phones get Wi-Fi calling anyway

    Although it would definitely be great if it did, I honestly don't see it happening,unless it becomes a carrier phone.

    Works on Pixel without it being a carrier phone. Worked on the LeEco series as well so it would be nice if Honor 7X had it.

    I've always had contract devices from major manufacturers. I sold my iPhone and got an Honor 6x, and I love it. Its unlocked, so when I upgrade, I won't owe anything and it works great on TMO.

    I am not surprised about Google but le leco is a bit surprising.

    Still, the issue with Huawei, especially when you are on tmobile, is that the two companies aren't on the best of terms since tmobile accused Huawei of stealing proprietary technology and Huawei sued tmobile over patent infringement.

    You don't have to worry about service contract phones anymore... Carriers did away with it.

    You still have device payment agreements, which is what I meant rather than a service contract. Sorry.

    Ah ok. I am OK with device payment agreements depending on the terms...if I can pay off anytime without losing anything then I don't have a problem. But some deals require bill credits which you lose if you pay off the phone early

    Yeah, I prefer to avoid bill credits. Unfortunately I was sucked into such a deal with my iPhone 7 and that’s the only reason I’ve avoided paying it off. Lesson learned, I guess.
