Xiaomi India Battery Replacement Service Feedback

I recently replaced the battery in my wife's 2021 poco m3 as the battery had totally died. New battery has great life and has been working fine for the past few months
 
Why wont mi official batteries last long? Are they selling sub par ones when compared to the one that came with the phone.
Or is it just something that local repair guys say.
Phone is 4yrs old now and parts is an issue. Batteries aren't new ones, but old ones stocked since many years.
And as they say...original is the actual original, anything thereafter is just a close match.

I want to replace battery of my Redmi note 7 pro and when I approached MI sc they said ignore online rates as now rates have inflated and he quoted me 1.8k for the battery.
I walked-into few local shops and they offered me batteries ranging 800 bucks to 1400 and said even MI so called original batteries wont last long as the original ones which got shipped with the phone.

Still not finding time to get it replaced..

Beware
So he did quick fix "bypassed the bms module using jumper" for ₹200
this was my assumption.
He soldered wire from battery +ve or -ve terminal and soldered to motherboard directly.
mobile is working perfectly.
max input is 18 watt (tested with 18 watt, 27 watt 33watt and i have 67 watt poco f5 charger)
battery working great no problems. any local repairer can tell what exactly he did.
 
My redmi note 8 pro is also not able to stay awake long.. since it's 4 years old I am in a dilemma whether to replace the battery or phone.. there is no performance related issue with the phone.. even the camera and display is pretty decent for the age of the device.. what's your suggestion as it is a sealed device I am sceptical about the finish while repacking the device.... Do the Service center do a good job while replacing the battery?

First check if service center has the battery in stock as in my case they had no part in stock and ordering it will cost more than 3 weeks.

On after market batteries or parts, the locals do the job just fine and in fact these days you dont even have to keep your phone with them for few days, they replace everything in front of you and work is done just within an hour or two so this ensures you can actually see how they handle stuff, replace and pack and you can poke them when required.

need more information.
do you mean screen timeout or battery life?
try resetting your device 1st.
then use it normally.

check battery health using battery guru app.
discharge completely and charge from 1% to 100% 2-3 times.
this will show battery health. everything is mentioned in the app.

you can calibrate your battery you will get some extra capacity.
Battery Calibration app
(New mobile or new battery)

Calibrate Your Battery
- Use your phone normally till it dies off automatically.
- Plug it into the charger and leave it charging for 2h while it's still off.
- Turn it on, calibrate the battery (https://xdaforums.com/attachments/daltonbrothers-batterycalibrationpro-1-4-apk.5763989/) (app) then unplug your phone and use it normally until it dies again.

using note 4 from 6.5+ yrs
not changed battery. I will change now.
battery guru app shows. 2400 mAh health capacity..
what's your suggestion as it is a sealed device
I opened redmi note 4 the day it arrived.
Just to look at insight.
It is easy for repairs for normal user as back panel is press fitted.
I am sceptical about the finish while repacking the device.... Do the Service center do a good job while replacing the battery?
depends on service center technician and his mood and time of the day.
overall 50%+ you get good service in repacking mostly in cities.

Or you can buy battery if it's available with service charges and gst prices from service center
And do it yourself.

i have been running a 7-8YO mi phone with multiple replaced batteries. got the original battery only once or twice in the beginning, and thereafter only aftermarket ones. not much difference between the orig & 3rd-party ones. my experience has been that every 6-10 months i have had to get the battery replaced. and at times had to also get the newly fitted battery replaced with some other brand's as i found the previous one to be discharging quicker. all this may differ in your case depending on the usage. as @nRiTeCh said technicians these days are usually more competent. i used to go to 3-4 of them and found one of them to be the best and i settled with him for all this & any other required repairs eventually (who fortunately happens to be near my home too).
