Xiaomi MI-2S with new chipset announced, faster than the S4? - read the full textOh, Xiaomi you keep teasing us with low-priced superphones that are a challenge to buy outside of China. The latest offering is an S version of the recent Xiaomi MI-2 and it packs a Snapdragon 600 chipset (over the S4 Pro of the MI-2). The quad-core Krait 300 CPU has been clocked at 1.7GHz but...

wow.. another good upgrade.. a mi2 user here, mi2 is awesome, fast and smooth, beat almost every android phone out the market in term of stability and smoothness. however, the gps detection is quite slowpoke, hard to detect in building or full of cloud. so if wan a good gps phone go for s4

The Xiaomi is comparing their "so called faster phone than S4" with the Samsung Galaxy S4 equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 with 4 cores, and not with the Samsung Galaxy S4 equipped with Exynos 5 Octa. And you're telling that making more cores is a child's play when in fact, both phones have same number of cores? YOUR ARGUMENT IS DEFINITELY INVALID!

It should be noted also that the benchmarks of Octa-Core Galaxy S4 has been reported here already. (

You will definitely see that the AnTuTu benchmark of Octa-Core S4 is a far cry from Xiaomi's benchmark.

We dont need big screen and octa cores right now, just stfo.we will wait for gsmarena,s result and btw this chinese stuff is even less then what sammy is selling so u wont get all the things in one package, its value for money.....and benchmarks are also a part of paper results, in real life depends how u use the phone. Ur so called s4 is just a sh@t that sammy is preparing, who d f@@k in this world needs a 5 phone. . Sammy has managed to fool u people and will do that for next couple of years. I will definatly buy this chinese stuff if its available in india. No matter what. None f ur sammy sh@t can go for one year, dats y sammy is always behind cores every now and then.. If u can afford a phone every 3-4 months then yaah buy it, otherwo
ise dont say stuff dat ur #$$ cant cash..... Just stfo and dose sammy fans just stop cribbin here. I know j cant handle smthn that pierces ur sammy,s specs.......

A real benchmark result is the one undertaken by 3rd party reviewer like GSMArena etc. You can go back to sleep now & suck your thumb...

1080p 5 screen:

Watch 1080p Very good
Watch 720p OK..
Watch 480p Huhhh
Watch 320p WTF.

720p 4.3 screen:

Watch 1080p Very good
Watch 720p Very good
Watch 480p OK.
Watch 320p Huhhh

Plus lag with 1080p ... since cpu is doing more then it should do.
Plus pentile screen, .. with words bloated to 1080p size.. you will see the defects.

Apple is laughing at those with 1080p gimmick... "Lol .. cannot support 1080p without lag still go do it for gimmick .. can save battery life but rather not"

GUYs look at the screen size its only 4.3" while S4's is 5". moreover its only a 720p screen while s4's is 1080p. I'm no samsung fan but all I'm trying to say is that the screen eats up a lot of CPU power...i'd like to know how the benchmarks would have turned out had Xiaomi used a 5" 1080p display. In this regard I think samsung did a better job than other mainstream manufacturers. Again not a fanboy n bash my comment all you want...cheers!!

probably because nobody cares about 720p/1080p difference except fanboys?human eye doesn't see the difference on 4 inch screen,so what's the point?

sometime you can't trust so much on China manufacturer because their devices lack of reliability.

another problem is not software update.
