I did try a search but need a specific answer to my query…
I have a Redmi Note 5 and cannot update the Fly app past 1.4( 40 or 42) i just gets really un responsive.
Phantomhelp lists the Note 8 as good for the Fly app but not which Android version of the app (it is not listed on DJI Fly app download specs) and, nice for me, has a much higher nits rating than the 5.
They are reasonable on eBay presently (where i got my Note 5 from too) and i would consider using it as my personal phone too than carry two phones presently… I only use the note 5 for the Mini 2.
so… anyone here using their Redmi Note 8 successfully with later versions or even the current version of the Fly App?
I recently swapped phones from a cheap Realme to a Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro. I used the Android transfer utility to move my apps from old phone to my new phone. All 150+ transferred across fine.
But when I went to use the DJI Fly and Go4 apps, they would open but then immediately close. I tried a few things to no avail (closing all apps, rebooting, clearing cache, etc.).
I then decided to uninstall both apps, and navigate to the DJI downloads page and reinstall. This immediately fixed the issue. On closer inspection, my old phone was running Android 10 and my new Note 10 Pro runs Android 12. Some folk in the forums have said only the latest app versions work on Android 12.
Not sure which version your Note 8 has, but it may be different to your old Note 5
The base Note 10 and its 10S counterpart get a 6.34-inch AMOLED with 60Hz refresh rate. The Note 10 Pro bumps this size up to 6.67-inch, with a doubling of the refresh rate to 120Hz - making it the top of the bunch. The Note 10 5G is in-between those, at 6.5-inch and 90Hz.
The only reason I changed phone was because 450 nits wasn’t bright enough on sunny days. I know Samsung screens have 1200 nits (and more) but the budget wouldn’t allow it. But the Note 10 Pro has the same OLED screen as the Samsung S20+, and has 1,200 nits - plus it’s 120Hz I can’t fault the screen, I now have no issue on a bright, sunny day.
I picked mine up 2nd hand in perfect condition for £180 of ebay a couple of weeks ago. It has 6GB ram, 128GB onboard storage, an micro-sd slot, dual sim and even a 3.5mm headphone port - a rarity nowadays! The 108mp camera is great too, especially the macro lens (quick snap below).
Like Chris, I am also using the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro with the DJI app, and have not found any issues (including any reported problems with the Mini 2 connection issues since the firmware DJI update). Obviously, all is possibly changed by whatever apps you might have installed, but feel free to message me if you are still struggling and I will try to help…
