My Xiaomi Mi Max 2 has excellent battery life , no problems at all for more than a year now. My wife's Samsung J7 has had many problems, short battery life, but better wifi connection. YMMV...

I had an xiaomi smart phone a year ago and can say i thought it was terrible, the back camera packed up almost straight away, the phone kept on freezing and the battery life was dreadful. They may have improved since then but id be careful when buying these and compared to the quality of a Samsung its night n day.
In Thailand warranty for phone -including camera- is one year. Have you got a new phone or old one repaired? Battery warranty is only 6 months.

Battery life is interesting, must be something related to User Interface. First two weeks I had to charge every day, now only every third day. So phone did adjust something during my 1st two weeks use and now it shows 66% after 19 hours use. Still good for today and tomorrow I have to charge.

We used to have Samsung phones, still two J7 and one J6Plus in house, but now Xiaomi seems to be our phone. Redmi Note 4 and Redmi Note 6 Pro.

Ps. Did you verify your phone? They have plenty of bad copies of MI and Xiaomi sold also in Thailand. Price is about 1000 thb cheaper than real one. Quality really different. Same applies to Samsung also.

For all: it is easy to check Xiaomi phone at shop. If you are getting earphones, phone is a copy. Original phone does not have earphones included to package. Most of the copies do. Authorized dealer usually bundles earphones to deal.

For us, I hope some other does not know, could you explain difference? Pangasius is catfish and quite soft. How about pollock?

Like I have been making fish soup with Sea Perch (instead of Pike Perch, medium), Plaa Nin (instead of Perch, hard) and Sole of pangasius (instead of Common Whitefish, soft). How you could describe pollock? I know that I can smoke it, but need also to know type of the fish.

I feel cod is better than pangasius, but pollock is new to me. Did live in Finland and we did have different kind of fish there.

Just like to know before rushing to Makro...

Pollock is he nice light White fish that is very mild. If you like any fish at all you will like this fish. It's also the main ingredient in most imitation crab meat because it is so mild it can be flavored. Try it you'll like it. You can fry it, deep fry it, bake it, just don't cook it too much. Salt and pepper both sides. If you are pan frying /searing it, Cook at a med hi in just a bit of oil. It will only take a few minutes to cook. Remember to preheat the pan. Do not move the fish or poke at it until it is opaque halfway up the side. A good heavy pan like cast iron will sustain the high heat without scorching. Only cook just until the white meat flakes. Here is my favorite sauce recipe... Butter. Also if you serve with a baked potato be sure and add plenty of my secret Pollock sauce to the potato as well. In that case it is known as potato sauce. And it's also good on vegetables where it's called... Wait for it … vegetable sauce. Save the leftover crud in the pan and add fresh lemon juice or white wine and some butter and scape up the crud into it making a pan sauce. Can add herbs here if wanted. Parsley chives dill etc.

Thanks! Sounds better than pangasius. I used to fish almost every day and got 1.3 kg fish every day -and my friend also as you can guess. Still foreign fish species are not so well known by me. I will make a try. To be honest, for me there is something wrong with the fish which do not jump on the pan.

My wife takes glucosamine tablets each day for her joints/bones. A 30 day supply in the pharmacies ranges from 500-900 Baht. Last year, in the US, we bought a container with 375 1500mg tablets in Costco for about $20. Time to buy more......got the exact same Kirkland container from Lazada for 1050 Baht. It's surprising the wide range of prices for glucosamine on Lazada......so it pays to flip a few pages in your search.
