Jack Kim, 23 Oct 2016More expensive than the best android flagship OnePlus3? I hope Xiaomi you must be kidding!Good, now there is someone who said OnePlus 3 is the best Flagship phone!
How can said that when this new phone have Iris Scanner, Flagship dual camera setup, dual edge screen, and much bigger internal storage option than ur 'meager' 64GB OP3?
Heck, even OP3 oxygen OS is crap in functionality & productivity compared to MIUI out of the box!
The ONLY flagship-grade phone that OnePlus has ever offer is OnePlus X!
Xtr, 23 Oct 2016Xiaomi has been geeting better at stealing other company's design and making a somewhat good p... moreWOW, you lot ALWAYS bitching about how Xiaomi stealing or copying S***ung's design, or a**ple design topic.
Do u actually have solid proof? OF COURSE NOT.
Do u know that EVEN in academic world, there is something called 'previous research/study', and it's ok to make a design or a feature that 'resembles' or 'have similar feature' to the already exist ones, as long as they DID NOT COPY ENTIRELY what others have made.
It's even better if they can fix the 'hole' that exist in the previous research/study (Edge are for Right-handed people, so Dual Curve like Mi Note 2 can fix the issue, that's if Xiaomi added special software for the edge side like Samsung does, if not, then dual edge screen in Mi Note 2 is just Gimmicks, as it has no functions at all)
The most recent examples are Google Assistant & Siri. They are 'similar' and have similar feature as well. But Google didn't copied it from a**le, they just use the same 'idea'.

Be Cool, 23 Oct 2016But for sure Samsung patented this design. So don't expect this phone outside China if they do... moreI get tired of the whole copied bull that people rant on about but lets go with the whole copy rant and say it the way it is. Samsung Note 5 from August 2015 copied Xiaomi Mi Note from Jan 2015 and Mi Note 2 copied their original back for the front. Let's continue and say Xiaomi made an original diamond cut chamfered frame and Samsung went with an ordinary Apple style bulge with thick Apple style antenna lines.
Xiaomi has been geeting better at stealing other company's design and making a somewhat good product. With minimal cost at designing, they could sell their stuff for less.
regs, 23 Oct 2016You can pick any OLED display. They all flexible. Mi Note 2 is said to have LG's POLED.But for sure Samsung patented this design. So don't expect this phone outside China if they don't pay for the design.
Grey1213, 23 Oct 2016Samsung sells the curved displays. I don't think anybody else makes them.If Xiaomi buy this displays from Samsung...Then they for sure pay for using the design too.
Otherwise if the displays are not Samsung's, don't expect those phones outside China.
regs, 23 Oct 2016US government is by far largest hacking group and spreading most malwares and spams in this wo... moreU really know what u said, dude...
Totally Agree with u. US gov is more threatening than any country in the world when it comes to cyber crime.
They monitor the net, they monitor social networking sites, even as far as tapping ur phone call to know the content of ur conversation.
And all of this crime become legal & justified because of one sentence:
"to protect the homeland of United States from local & foreign threats"
regs, 23 Oct 2016You can pick any OLED display. They all flexible. Mi Note 2 is said to have LG's POLED.LOL. All this display naming sense become more & more silly by the day.
OLED is already silly enough, then comes AMOLED, which makes me think this screen might used amoeba to get better display.
Now, there is another one, POLED, which makes me LOL a lot.
Did this display made by Poland's engineer?
or when they this display the made it using some kind of pole to make the display as good as AMOLED?

Digital-W.MK, 23 Oct 2016Somehow, Xiaomi like other china brands are controlled by the china state. So..i really don't ... moreUS government is by far largest hacking group and spreading most malwares and spams in this world. So you better care of Android, iOS, Windows, Yahoo etc. More than that Yahoo executives were already caught working for NSA. Some of them now work for Facebook, so guess who spyes all of them now.
Somehow, Xiaomi like other china brands are controlled by the china state. So..i really don't like to have a device that would make attack on servers and do some nasty stuff without ask me fist :) Maybe I'm paranoid... or I'm not.
I really don't know why the so called tech sites don't comment this:
Such curved edged device like this, I guess, they can sell only in China- unless they pay Samsung royalties.
And what about if Apple decide next year to make same design? LOL
ethereal, 23 Oct 2016Touchwiz then has its own flaws and is not perfect. It is. But MIUI isn't that light anymore. Stock Android has better UI.
put it stil beautiful to have xiaomi with an edge display and more than that the camera is dual 23 mp , in my opinion it's not that much of expenssive....
Step by step hmmmm..... xiaomi how long you gonna same level price of branded phone ha ha ha. Nice try xiaomi!
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2016415 $ is not a big price for this phone, btw i prefer xiaomi instead of samsung, more clean ui.TouchWiz has changed a lot on Android 6. It's more cleaner now. Most UI looks stock-like. MIUI 8 has pretty poor notification area and buggy dialer.
