i bought from poco a Redmi 9s, but it seems that the suggested mode to dynamically enlarge the text of an SMS described in point 4 (used instead on Samsung J5 without problems) does not work. Of course it works to increase the Font in the standard options of the DISPLAY. Any suggestions ? thank you.

Hi I have since this morning turned on, configured and set up a new Mi9 phone according to the steps he asked me and then accessed the Google backup with the apps and contacts and data on the profile I had on the other phone and I'm trying it and it seems to go well . At first the volume bar appeared when I pressed the two side keys up and down, now after a while it no longer appears and the side up / down volume keys work only when the screen is off without having done anything. Why? I have never used a Xiaomi before and I don't know someone could explain it to me? Thanks.... Read the rest »

Fantastic! I only ask for one thing that I have found so far poco nice: I have been the owner of a Xiaomi Redmi 4X for only 2 days and I have noticed that often, when I pull down the drop-down menu of some applications, there is a yellow halo at the top, as if it were a defect of the display. Then as soon as the curtain goes up it comes back clean as before. Will it be a bug? for now I am very happy and infrared is a cool thing!

i am new to xiaomi, i have da poco a redmi3 rom xiaomi.eu stable 7.1.3.0. It happens to me that during the call the interlocutor suddenly does not hear me, as if the mute is activated. I have the impression that it only happens if I am outside. How can I solve? Thank you
