Xiaomi never made a phone running Microsoft's MUI.

That is why we'r… moreI believe it's just a kickstart problem: core challenge seems to be to get drivers developped by manufacturers for LINUX, which they won't until there is scale. And scale won't be, until htere are drivers to make the OS competitive with Android. I fancied chinese brands would use the opportunity when HUWAEI got issues and would start a cooperation, but apparently not even they want to invest. I know, the App ecosystem. But a compatibility layer for Android apps should not be such a huge deal? GOOGLE won't possibly run Android forever…
Anonymous, 16 hours agoUse linux os or privacy-first Android custom rom like /e/ or CalyxOS or GrapheneOS. I tried but unfortunately all these packages are made by small teams, so small that sometimes they don't even have a package for the phones I had.
For example, when I searched, a package for Redmi 2 Prime and Redmi Note 4 wasn't available.
Web based OS is a good idea, it is a pity that it did not become mainstream. Looking at Android and iOS, the number of apps needed in the phone is horrifying, every single little function needs app downloading and updating. Apps is like inflation, it will be getting higher and higher and never go down.
They should make android for dumb phones

I bought a 8110 4G as a second phone but it lagged most of times. The processor choice was poor from Nokia or perhaps the OS wasn't well optimised. It had good battery life tho but everything else was awful. Nokia adorning it with ancient specs didn't help much either so I sold it and got an android phone
@GSMArena.. post some articles about Ubuntu Touch.. Let people know there's a free third OS choice.

I bought a KaiOS-powered Nokia feature phone thinking that it'd be great as a digital detox tool. Frankly speaking, it's a complete waste of money. I ended up getting myself a secondhand Windows Phone device (the Microsoft Lumia 950 to be precise) and it's a much better digital detox experience than KaiOS.
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2022The only worst OS than KaiOS is MUI for me.Forget KaiOS or MUI, Linux doesn't really work well as a mobile OS. That is why we're still not seeing mobile Linux going mainstream despite having the likes of Purism Librem 5 and PINE64 PinePhone/PinePhone Pro.

Anonymous, 30 Oct 2022The only worst OS than KaiOS is MUI for me.You seem awfully obsessed with MIUI (MUI in your parlance) for someone who supposedly already got an Iphone to replace your Xiaomi. This is your comment from the Note 12 Explorer article:
"Had a Xiaomi and it was so bad that I bought my first iPhone 2 months into ownership. It was the worst phone I have ever used. Ads everywhere , full of bloat and very unreliable MUI skin. Never buying their rubbish again ."

Anonymous, 30 Oct 2022The only worst OS than KaiOS is MUI for me.MIUI is cheap model of ads bussines, i think this model can be more worth of money in future.
I was rooting for Ubuntu Touch, their mobile OS. It's not dead yet, but I wanted it to succeed.

T… moreSamsung Wave was great, but that was the only good phone with bada OS and that's not enough to compete. Wave 2 didn't really bring any upgrades like one would expect, and that was the final nail in it's coffin, though samsung probably already knew the platform isn't going anywhere. But the first Wave had some small aspects that were even better than Android (just like today some features in OneUI are not even on native android).
Kai is sucks . Slow and bad battery backup .
Old Nokia S40 or Symbian can run Faster than this so call new os .
Evan with Big funding and new hardware kai os phone cant run Faster than old Nokia S40 and Symbian phone .
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2022What about harmony os? its just android without google service. thats pretty much it
Spotted an issue: The Go Flip V runs an AOSP based OS, not KaiOS. Check Alcatel and Verizon website.
Guru, 30 Oct 2022Nowadays there's no third choice.. It's either Android or iOS.What about harmony os?
Tizen could work but for some reason samsung never took much risk with bada and tizen both.
They just had to release a flagship with promise of 6-7 years update.
