kartoon7, 28 Sep 2012Just to clear a few things. Mi2 is not the only one on the list with 4-core CPU. SGS3, Optimus... moreYou are right Kartoon7, something that benchmarks do not show, is that Snapdragon S4 consumes way less battery than Exynos4 and Tegra3 smartphones, and it is based on cortex A15, so it will need a new android 5 to use all its power, just like tegra3 and exynos4 have 30% more power with ICS and JB, that was made to better use multi core cpus and gpus (cortex A9), when google releases the new android capable to use all power on cortex-a15, cortex-a15 based, x86 chipsets we will have a way better benchmark result with optimus LG G, Xiamo MI-2 than the ones showed above.
I want that phone. Hope that it will get til East Europe, because if it won't, I'll be forced to buy a One S or SGS2, or something else as overpriced as these two. Also, this phone might change views of many people around the globe about China and their production.
In conclusion, after writing this comment and checking on price differences between Xiaomi and HTC or Samsung I can say only one thing - I really want that phone!
iSJ5, 28 Sep 2012we not buy china phones!iphone = china phone...
cost less than $200 to manufacture
Hung Nguyen, 28 Sep 2012GSMArena, why do you never show Linpack single-thread benchmark? Please show it and we can see... moreJust to clear a few things. Mi2 is not the only one on the list with 4-core CPU. SGS3, Optimus 4X, Meizu, HTC One X. So the chart is good, considering a good comparison. S4 Pro is way better than anything in the market right now.
wOw optimus G with ICS beat Mi2 with JB, with same CPU n GPU, hmm... how is G performance with JB? Must be GREAT.
Look guys, I do not know a better rom / firmware than MIUI, and it comes from Xiaomi, they do make an excelent work with android support, updating the rom with stable releases every 20 days.
Now I do agree that it is rare to find a good china phone, the Xiaomi MI-1 for example, have a terrible touchscreen, but they did corrected that on MI-1S.
However, if you guys watch the presentation of MI-2 on youtube, you will realize that MI-2 is not a cheap and fragile smartphone, comes with a screen that have the best image quality today, and the second best touchscreen sensibility, only looses to nokia 920 that you can use with gloves, and it does have Gorilla Glass, the screen covers all the front of the phone, just like RAZR M did. The back it is not made with cheap plastic, but with a very resistive high-density polymer. The internal hardware is great, not only a qualcomm S4 PRO and its perks, but 3 mics that simulate human ear, and select where and what to record, double inside antenna, very fast internal memory and ram, best camera with 8mp, lots of lens and filters, and so on.
Now the benchmark will be greater since Xiaomi already announced that is working on a better kernel, and expect 25% more benchmark, however it is on beta stage and MIUI only runs on stable releases.
This is not a cheap China phone, Xiaomi MI-1 and MI-1S are, but MI-2 does have a great quality, I would buy one instead LG G any day.
the cost of an iphone is mere 220 USD and the cost to make this phone is roughly 240 because lesser production volume drives cost higher compare to apple
Still it may not make money at first but it will make money down the track.
They sell custom make accessories at higher than average chinese market price to make money...
GSMArena, why do you never show Linpack single-thread benchmark? Please show it and we can see how suck S4 Pro (Or Linpack benchmark) is.
S4 Pro has 4 cores compared to 2 cores of S4 Plus, and Linpack multi-thread is supposed to be double, but when I saw Linpack single-thread, even it is 2-3 times more than S4 Plus benchmark though the same architechture, what the hell?
If this phone goes international, I would rather wait for a review and feedback to customers before buying this one. If reviews will have positive outcome and customer service & support have positive feedback as well, then I would buy this phone. A perfect sized smartphone for me.
LG Optimus G might be the first S4 Pro phone to make it to market. But MI-2 is the first S4 Pro phone to launch JB out of the box. :)
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2012Your iPhone is also msde in China and costs relatively cheap to produce but (over)priced in US... moreThe brand name is one of the main reasons why the forbidden fruit's products are priced as such; overly steep. The unlocked 64Gb version of the iP5 can be had for 1,500 USD in other countries.
iSJ5, 28 Sep 2012why china phones is so cheap and also good specs? is that crap?Your iPhone is also msde in China and costs relatively cheap to produce but (over)priced in USA. Cheap. Fragile. Poor Quality control.
iSJ5, 28 Sep 2012why china phones is so cheap and also good specs? is that crap?How is it crap? Look at the impressive benchmark. Most phones are all made in China anyways, the reason why they are expensive cause they are designed outside China = high cost compare to XiaoMi designed locally = low cost
