I cant understand how apple still manufacture phones with 2,600 battery when this is such a crucial feature nowadays .


For me battery capacity is ahead of camera .

I am coming to this thread for help as failed to get replies on my other threads, does anyone know how to transfer all data/apps etc. from a Xiaomi mi phone to Google Android Mi A1 phone, the option to back up to Google is not available and everything is backed up to mi cloud, I can't seem to do a backup to mi pc suite, seems there are lots of people who have failed to do this going by Google searches, I tried Cloneit app for transfer but the apps i have used on old phone are listed on new phone but I have to install all.

Anybody going for the Mi Max 3? Its an absolute beast, a lot of phone for ~€300:

https://www.banggood.com/Xiaomi-Mi-M...r_warehouse=CN

Im doing a lot of travelling these days and it would be nice to have a cross between a phone and a tablet for browsing and tv, plus Ive been reading so much comics and graphics novels lately on my phone that again it would be nice to have the big screen and big battery, not sure about that resolution though.

Ill wait for a few reviews, 6.9" screen is making me nervous though, my first tablet was 7"

As long as the reviews are good Ill go for it I reckon, my Oneplus One is starting to die and you cant get replacement batteries anymore but the offerings at the minute arent really that great across the board, just minor updates to last years stuff from what I can see.

Im going to try it when it comes in stock, I can always sell it on Adverts if I dont like it.

The problem is that your running two different and conflicting OS.

If your first MI Device was rooted, there is apps you could use to backup apps (and there associated data). But to root, you would need to unlock the bootloader, which would wipe your data in the process.

Even if you got Mi PCSuite (update beta versions available) working for your first device, I don't believe that tool would work on the Android One device.

When setting up the Mi A1, you could have used google play to download apps (used on prior device) and install them. But you probably connected to google as new device, instead of restoring.

Thanks for the update, I actually used restore option, but it seems to only have brought in the Google apps, like Google maps, calendar, etc, no apps restored from my old device, maybe because when I purchased this phone about 3 years ago, I had to install Google play services, looks like I will have to install all individually, not sure if Viber and what's app historic messages will be available, my Gmail data seems fine, photos and videos came across with Cloneit, will try again later, it's a bit head wrecking,

Sit down at a desktop pc, log into your google account and tell all the apps on your account to install from the desktop play store, it will be one click each, you'll be done in 10 minutes.

they honor probably wont have sd card support, and will likely be 19:9 ratio so a touch thinner than the mi max 3...but i bet it'll have a good camera.

i am smitten and excited at the thought of the mi max 3, but i am waiting for good youtube reviews...i am curious mainly about the camera, but i expect it to be same as redmi note 5 as specs are same...also, when a global version will be released...although theres an english version which you could put on play store and services on, i think.

my only other concern, as someone who walks a lot of the year in rain (with earphones plugged in), is no level of waterproofing on these.

but i love HUGE screen phones...ever since the samsung note series started out.

Great, thanks for this, I have spent all of yesterday trying to figure out how to do this, this forum is such a help, will update later on this.
Just one other thing, I have three options on new phone for restoring, backup from Android phone, backup from cloud, an iPhone device, which should I select after completing the above, or am I selection setting up from new and adding my Google account? Apologies if this sounds silly but I'm not technical minded.

You can only restore google backups to Mi A1. The MIUI backup cannot be restored in non MIUI devices.
Use Titanium backup to backup data from MIUI Device, and restore with TItanium backup in Mi A1.
But remember to backup and restore app data also, you need to have both device rooted.

http://en.miui.com/thread-1436456-1-1.html


So the backup and restore options your possibly seeing on your Mi A1 or for restoring backups created with the Mi A1

Honor and Huawei bootloader unlock codes will stop being provided as of tomorrow

Honor and Huawei bootloader unlock codes will stop being provided as of tomorrow


Quote:
On May 24, the message below was annoucing users that Honor and Huawei bootloader unlock codes will stop being provided in 60 days. This means that if you have a phone made by Huawei or Honor, today is your last day to request one.

Of course, you should only do that if you intend to do some real tinkering with your device, like gaining root access, flashing a custom ROM, custom kernel, and alike. If you consider doing these extreme customizations, you should also know that you are doing it at your own risk. Ceasing to supply Honor and Huawei bootloader unlock codes is explained by the manufacturer as a means to “provide better user experience and avoid issues caused by ROM flashing”.

The service will be stopped for all products, so, again, if you really need to, today is your last chance.

You can definitely backup whatsapp, I just did it before switching to my note 5. Not sure about Viber don't use it
