    I bought mine from Amazon over the summer, but they're no longer in stock anymore.

    Don't forget the Aliexpress coupon and eBates hahaha

    It is actually honestly more that I am curious to see what like the Pocophone drop to. That sort of thing. Im less worried about this deal and more worried about buying it today, then something dropping and being like FAK.

    Screw it, decided to order both for my wife and I. Ended up being $274.xx CAD with shipping for each. Then Ebates 3% back. So not bad overall. Will pay about $530 in the end for 2.

    So got them both a few days ago. Pretty darned happy with them. Only 2 complaints on MIUI. First is the 'security' app. Couldn't remove it in the stripper tool and don't really know what it is doing / why it needs the permissions it does. Second is the screen 'on' time and the time to lock the screen seem to be the same setting.

    Otherwise super impressed with the performance, I downloaded 80gb of my music / podcasts yesterday and had about 12 hours of uptime and used 60% of battery. Pretty nuts. Also the LTE / Wifi antenna seems really silly fast compared to a lot of my old equipment. Dunno. Tempted to buy another few just so I have spares when they go on sale.

    And yes this is the Snapdragon 636 model and it shows as the Note 5 Pro even though the Ali-Express listing is just 'global version'.

    Yeah, I'm not too sure about either of those. I'm never bothered by the security app cause I turned off the notifications haha

    There's a couple other things you can do to improve performance too. I can't find the link for it, but I think disabling MIUI Optimization in Developer Options is one of them. Also either disable battery saver completely or turn it off for apps you want running in the background and use for notifications otherwise it'll just keep killing everything you're not actively using. I've missed things like calendar notifications cause of it. I still get amazing battery life with it completely off.

    Thanks yeah battery saver is off already. Turned off the Miui optimization. Put Pixel 1.4 Launcher onto it. Still a little strange, but less so. Found the screen timeout, it was under 'sleep' but I swear there is supposed to be an android setting to 'not lock' if active in the last xx minutes even if the screen times out. They might have removed that. Also found the 'trusted' bluetooth thing where it wont lock when connected to your vehicle is impossible to get to on their software. Dunno how to get back there and seems to be a complaint.

    However, still love it. Especially for the price. The FM receiver is also hilarious to have.

    Just for shits and giggles, I picked up at Mi A2 Lite off a guy on RFD tonight just to try out. I like the smaller size, it's got the 4000mah battery, and of course pure Android. I'm so undecided which one I want to keep haha! It does feel slower than the Note 5 Pro though.
