Question
As I already mentioned on the pool, which version do you consider is best for you? Please specify the exact version on the thread to make an idea.
Because the versions are still developed and released for this model you can always change your vote, that's why I'm asking you to write on the thread the version also, to see the evolution.

Disclaimer
From a regular stable user I switched to weekly rom because I want to use Google Pay without any root or other tricks.
I would like to have your personal experiences with weekly or stable ROMs for Mi 10 5G (umi) phone.
More important I want to know which version you consider cover more of your requests.
Remember this discussion is about the Xiaomi.eu ROMs, which is a custom ROM and it is not about the official ROMs developed by Xiaomi. I would like to make this statement for those who reach to this topic from Google or other search engine without knowing that the Xiaomi.eu ROM is a custom ROM and not an Official ROM.

1. Version: xiaomi.eu_multi_MI10_V12.5.8.0.RJBCNXM_v12-11 / 2021-09-08

Positive experiences
- The battery is discharging normally for my activities. (**)

Negative experiences
- Device appear as NOT certified on Google Play
- SafetyNet Test is NOT passing natively(*)
- Google Pay is NOT working natively(*)

2. Version: xiaomi.eu_multi_MI10_21.9.28_v12-11 / 2021-09-29

Positive experiences
- Device appear as certified on Google Play
- SafetyNet Test is passing natively(*)
- Google Pay is working natively(*)

Negative experiences
- The battery seems to discharge quickly(**)

Notes
(*) "Natively" I mean without changing anything on the ROM or using any root/Magisk tricks.
(**) Battery discharging. First of all this is my impressions, I have used weekly rom on the phone for 3 days, before I had used stable version (xiaomi.eu_multi_MI10_V12.5.8.0.RJBCNXM), and I noticed at the end of the day that the battery have more less charging that on the stable version. By having same activities on both cases (~7h SOT) at the end of the day, on stable I had more than 25% battery remained, but on the weekly version I have less than 10%.

Because of that negative experience related with the battery discharge I downgraded my weekly version from xiaomi.eu_multi_MI10_21.9.28_v12-11 (2021-09-29) to xiaomi.eu_multi_MI10_21.9.22_v12-11 (2021-09-23).
I must specify that when I switched from a version to another I always formatted the /data partition in order to have the cleanest installation version possible.

After more than a week of using xiaomi.eu_multi_MI10_21.9.22_v12-11 (2021-09-23) I must say that both of the latest two weekly versions have a battery drain issue. The battery seems to be draining more quickly than on the stable version.
Most probably I will switch back to stable version when will be available the newest version, newest than xiaomi.eu_multi_MI10_V12.5.8.0.RJBCNXM_v12-11 (2021-09-08).
I changed my vote from weekly to stable :)

Weird thing, yesterday I was played around with some stock firmwares, with the goal in mind at the end to flash the latest available xiaomi.eu stable version (xiaomi.eu_multi_MI10_V12.5.8.0.RJBCNXM_v12-11 / 2021-09-08)

So I fully flashed in order:
- Russian stock firmware (via fastboot);
- Indonesian stock firmware (via fastboot);
- European stock firmware (via fastboot);
- xiaomi.eu stable V12.5.8.0.RJBCNXM version (via recovery/twrp).

I noticed that on Google Play the device appear as certified, SafetyNet Test is passing, Google Pay allowed me to add cards for contactless payment. All this without having the phone rooted (Magisk)

So the weird thing is that as can be seen on my first post, I was not able to do all of that without rooting to pass all certifications by force.
