    Hi,

    Why the Xiaomi Mi Note has an official ROM with Android 6 and the Mi Note Pro with Android 5.

    What is the trouble ?

    Thanks

    I think it's a question of "numbers".
    Xiaomi has sold more Mi Note than Mi Note Pro.

    What a pity! Is the hardware so different ?

    hi, you're right this phone is less than 2 YO and it seems that it's not support more by xiaomi. Maybe, they expect to sell the Mi Note 2 at high price. Will see if they support ours a little further. from that, it also will depend if I continue to buy from xiaomi or not.

    That's because there's no official global firmware for Mi Note Pro so people get it here.

    Just for whoever is interested I sold my Pro on because I saw Xiaomi were killing it off thanks to the SD810 issue all manufacturers had. Their first move was stop production and sell the remaining stock exclusively through a certain credit card, a month later they vanished altogether. This was before it was even a year old.

    My wife has her Pro still and it's now throttled back slower than my Mi Note. This has had an impact on the UI even, small stutters are noticeable in UI transitions which aren't there on my Mi Note. Battery performance is also "much" better on my Note.

    You're right. I didn't notice that before.

    That's why the price was so cheap.

    But looking at the test, most of the specialized websites wrote it was an excellent phone.

    I heard already that the trouble of the S810 was the overheating. I didn't have that trouble with my Mi note pro but never play game on it.

    I just as saw now some others according with your comment.

    I have to do with it now.

    Xiaomi did their best, Sony's Z3+ couldn't even run the camera without overheating. Any kind of effective update needed to come from Qualcomm as a driver update, and it never did. It should have been a recall.

    Now the SD821 has a stutter issue..
