    On the next flight home in DC. The plane is full. I'm looking forward to some nice weather in LA.

    Every time I use the Mi Note 2, I'm so impressed by how well it has aged. It makes me wish I had gotten one of the 2017 models. I really liked the Mi Mix 2, but wished it had a better camera that would have justified the purchase for me. Still feel the OG Mi 5 is criminally underrated.

    The Mi Note 2 is now running on the January security patch, which is really nice. I suppose my only software complaint is the OS is 7.0, but I suspect you'll see it be a MIUI 10 + 8.x approach for this phone.

    Solid, solid stuff indeed. Curious though to see what happens for Xiaomi in 2018.

    I've got mixed feelings about this 18:9 aspect ratio shift. Do I like more screen in more a compact body? Yes, it's nice. But outside of more screen, I'm not sure it adds more.

    My feelings are pretty stable - I hate the 2:1 AR with a passion.

    MIA, this made me think of you since it's a long-term review of the Nokia 8:

    I hope that they will continue to do these, even though there's only 3 currently (this is one of the 3).

    Thanks for sharing. I kinda read through this one yesterday. We'll see if they keep this up.

    I am interested in trying it, but we'll see.

    Ohh okay. I figured that you might have saw it already but still worth a try. The good thing is that you have plenty of time to pass on it or take a chance and a lot of patience, which works in your favor.

    The only things that could make me give up the A3 for the incoming Sony Compact is if it has a better processor and a better or equal camera. Otherwise, I'm good with the A3. It seems to get security updates every other month, and battery life is still great on Nougat. It's been nice not to deal with battery anxiety in the way I would have with my other phones I have owned*.

    I do still have to clear cache of apps, which is annoying and occasional "_ has stopped" but I think this is the best I could get for what's important to me in a phone on the Android side on things.

    *=The Xperia XZ1 Compact is the only phone I have tried last year (I think anyway) that actually has really good battery life as well, aside from the A3 of course.

    Stop complaining. It's even worse on the unlocked models.
