I have the Redmi 8 Pro. My only fault is the Xiaomi bloatware, other than that for the price, it is a cracking phone! Second Xiaomi phone and very happy.

All bloatware/unnecessary apps can be removed using Android Debug Bridge utility

Would running that cause any issue with the phone showing as hacked/jailbroken etc for using banking apps etc?
