Mugetsu, 23 Sep 2016What do you mean a phone is only only supposed to last for 3 years? Do you even have a brain?You mean it will last more than 3 years???? yeah i agree you are the best thinker on the world you have more brain than Einstein....
I bought mi3 before 2.5 year and it still alive (for 300$) one of my friend has already changed 2 samsungs S3 and S5 and he has plan to go for s7 couse s5 nowdays is shit (about 600$ for each) another friend bought iphone 5 (already changed screen, battery charger all problems around 200 $) now he wants to move pr iphone 6 or 7. Both their phone lasts 2 years with that huge money spent, i still have my mi3 maybe i go for mi5 couse is just 270$ maybe i will wait a couple of months to see the prices... and im 100% sure mi3 have better camera than iphone 5 and samsung s5 i have tested with both phones.
All im saying is doesn't worth spending that huge money for an items that maybe you will forget it into a public bathroom or might be stolen or broken. Except you are one of rich people part and wanna show out you money.
Mobile phone business seems to be the biggest business in the world. Big brands with infrastructures are just minting money. Physical hardware and software costs for the finished product cannot be be more than 50% of the cast and rest is patent money. spare part cost when bought on a large scale is very cheap even the latest SD cpus. Marketing eats away a major portion.

A Chinese company removed the headphone jack.
A Asian company made dual cameras.
So no you're argument is INVALID!

If the Xiaomi Mi5 already had a poor camera, and it was meant to be a flagship, how is this gonna even try to compete with offerings like the V20 or 7 Plus? Okay fine, its not trying to compete with those phones, or is it? Its certainly not a better phone, but it may be the mid range destroyer, if they dont screw up again like they did with the Mi5.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2016It is like Hyundai and Mercedes or Casio and Longines. We must have products wich segregate us.no its not, a smartphone is build to last long max 3 years if you can maintain it by best away. A car is build to have it at least 10 years or a watch maybe for hole your live. So if you plan to buy an item that you will have it for maximum 3 year (coz you can break it after a week, or you can lose it) go ahead by one that cost 800Euro instead one that will cost max 400$.
how about apples dual camera , they have copied all existing dual cameras and tried to put all of them in their yet still couldnt reach any one , LG have better setup still no one can beat their wide range camera , newest iphone feature bokeh effect copy xiaomi and Htc before them :v , at least no one trying to copy apple now , no headphone jack :v
