Hi I have this morning turned on, configured and set up a new Mi9 phone according to the steps that he asked me and then logged into the Google backup with the apps and contacts and data present on the profile I had on the other phone and I am trying it and it seems to be fine . At the beginning the volume bar appeared when I pressed the two side up and down buttons, now after a while it no longer appears and the side up / down volume buttons only work with the screen off without having done anything. Because? I have never used a Xiaomi before and I don't know someone could explain it to me? Thank you.... Read the rest »

Fantastic! I just ask for something that until now I found it unpleasant: I own a Xiaomi Redmi 4X for only 2 days and I noticed that often when I pull down the drop down menu of some applications, there is a yellow solo on top , as if it were a defect in the display. Then just the curtain goes back clean as before. Will it be a bug? for now I find myself very well and the infrared is a slut!

I'm a xiaomi neophyte, I've just got a redme3 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 was activated. I have the impression that it only happens if I'm outside. How can I fix it? Thank you
