    Only me can be trying to think of every possible thing to add to my essays, but on another part of my brain, I'm thinking about phone stuff. I'm broken.

    I'm nearly done the shorter one but having to meet an exact word count is so annoying. I feel kind of close though.

    Obviously, I know which one is important, but a part of my mind has me wondering when this A3 would show itself again. That's further back but that is what is really inspiring the phone stuff here. Having to maintain a phone is really annoying. I would rather not think about having to maintain it.

    Seems like I have to make a choice so that I can just live (without it being in my head). I'm a natural worrier but I have no idea how people deal with things that have to be maintained often. I understand that people don't have a choice sometimes, but when one does, I'm confused why...

    Edit: For the sake of my brainpower, which is super needed for this (the essays), I have switched back to the SE. I will be using the front camera when needed on the A3 for now. For my battery woes, I have ordered a battery case which will be coming early next week. When the pending phone drops, these suckers would have already been submitted!

    Looks like a clearing from bands for another 2 hours or so. It's a little unsettling to see the eye moving off the coast of Camaguey, Cuba (where I was born) and not too far from the purple dot that represents where I live.

    Agreed, thanks for sharing! I like how he touched on things outside of the expected, but also with what is expected.

    These devices are marketed for two different groups. It's nothing more than a ******* contest to say one is better than the other.

    LOL. I've seen some ingenious solutions during the big floods some years back in Bangkok.

    Finally finished my essays for this application! Now I just need select people to revise them for me. Thankfully, I even have time for them to do that too. \o/

    That it does. Looks pocket friendly too, has the Mi 6's primary camera and with the global band support...

    But no headphone jack.

    I was disappointed with the Mi Note 3.

    Same here. The Mi Note 3 is a disappointment. But I think this is because they made the Mix 2 more mainstream and dropped price on it. So Mi Note 3 got a further price drop and a 6XX series processor.

    However, looks like Xiaomi left all the bands intact for the Mi Mix 2 so at least it should get full LTE on carriers here in the USA. That is a big relief!

    The Mi Mix 2 would probably be a fun phone to use.

    Ooh I hope you do! I'll like to hear what you think about it and how it feels in the hand, etc.

    Which, on one hand is OK, but takes the sting out of it really. It's not that much different from the Mi 6. It feels like the made the Mi Note 3 to be a successor to the Mi 5S/Mi 5S+ of last year instead of the Mi Note 3.

    I'm sure the 660 chip is capable, but once again an OEM dilutes their line up even more. While I know this doesn't compete with the Mi 5 X/A1, they're still too close to differentiate, really.
