    A jacket remains a jacket, it can not be your luggage, if so, u do not have a jacket at all.

      Using Mi 9t with a "slower" processor for half a year now - saw 0 lags, even in some demanding games. But if you really need that extra power - Xiaomi already released Mi9t Pro - so it's exactly the same as K20 Pro but I personally feel no reason to get more than I already have

                        why would have been really nice is to know if you tested these phones on any US based carriers and what they worked on and did you get LTE reception

                          wow from 60 fps in games on the pro to 30 fps on the regular version is such a big difference.

                            You’d hardly find new unlocked Galaxy s9 plus 128gb cheaper than $600. The mentioned $350 - 400 is for renewed one

                                    I’m coming from iPhone SE and I really want a good upgrade of a phone and I’m considering these 2. Either One Plus 7T Pro or Mi 9T Pro... but damn that 90hz refresh display is what i wanntttt.

                                          honestly $300 is insane price jeez i remember OPO was killer for like $350 this is insane. Looks fantastic for the price near bezel less and underscreen fingerprint sensor is a big win. Triple camera i would assume is still meh a lot of these cheaper phones have bad sensors.

These devices should not be so expensive. Do your research, almost cost nothing compared to the price they sell them at.

                                                                                              No 90hz mode is a big deal for me. No stereo speakers. The camera is not as good as the oneplus camera and Xiaomi usually put an awful video mic into their phones to cut costs, so sound is terrible in videos. The oneplus 7t is less than $400 now. Definitely worth the extra.
