Q: May I know once connected the MiClick, can I still make a normal phone call/Will the MiClick treated as earphone by phone and expected the incoming voice come from “earphone” mic?
A: Yes you can, the MiClick is treated as a button and not an earphone, so voice input and output is still routed to the phone’s speaker and mic as usual.
Q: When is the MiClick launching in Singapore/Is the MiClick available to buy online/Where can I get one?
A: Unfortunately, unless you won one at the MIUI Fan event last week, there isn’t any way to get one yet. Hopefully it will be available for purchase in Singapore soon!
Q: When using the MiClick, why does the headphones icon still appears?
A: As mentioned in my tutorial, be careful not to press on the MiClick’s button when inserting the MiClick as before selecting the MiClick option, it will be treated as headphones and will stay in headphone mode until reinserted even if the MiClick option is selected.
Q: Will MiClick work with non-Xiaomi phones?
