After one week on the new firmware, two thumbs up. Feels like a flagship phone . Too bad this is not my main phone due to camera.

Now wondering if any upgrade to camera sw and quality.
you can try nitrogen os + gcam.

Definitely Redmi Note 5 Pro for the overall bump in specs compared to Redmi Note 3. From initial reviews I have seen, the camera on the Note 5 Pro is quite an improvement from past Redmi Notes too.

I think he meant would we forgo SD650 for the trendier 18:9 look but a downgrade to SD625.

Think the sd 636 is a better processor

I'm still using xiao mi 2, bought in 2012. Yes, still got software updates, although may not be for long since the hardware cant support any further and not many users already.

For me exact same problem just happened about a week ago.
Software solution: Use the app soundabout download from playstore. It allows you to choose where to output the media to, i.e speakers or headphone jack.
Hardware solution: change headphone jack. I still waiting for replacement part to arrive from taobao, but from online guide need solder sia so quite difficult.....

But upon further inspection the problem is cause a metallic part inside the headphone jack chip off (broke) that's why it always detect as headphones plugged in

Is it difficult to replace the flex cable for power and volume button? From youtube looks quite simple just pry open the case and open some screw, no solder required. Cmiiw.

Hey guys, for those Xiaomi Note 3 users with the snapdragon 650.

Does the phone tend to heat up during long gaming? Does it throttle often?
