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...

There is absolutley no point in announcing this company news cuz they cannot sell it outside china and even in china you have to go through some sill procedures before being able to order it through Xiaomi web site.

Very reasonable price. Iphone 5 has BOP is $217 that is Bill of material payment .Other money go to software and company . So cheap does not mean low quality of Xiaomi . Great job China.

Finally a screen which is pocket-able! If I wanted a large screen I'd buy a tablet, I think a phone should be usable with one hand, otherwise it's too big.

I can't see why companies are insistent on 5"

with a 720p phone running on a 1.7 ghz s600 quadcore and on a MIUI rom is bound to have higher scores than a full HD phone.. but then again, the scores are negligible and the Antutu, Quadrant, and other synthetic benchmark scores are arbitrary, I would bet that using the same phone would get lesser scores if they test it again..

even then, this is the s600 version of SGs4..

intel dual core still beaten rest of competition,i think oems should use it over exynos,roc,allwinner,quallcomm and nvidia
i mean its dual core basically it still has better performance with much better battery life

Waiting to see what the Mi-3 is made of, since it looks like the designers put at least 10 minutes more thought into that one...

In the AnTutu Test i see two Xiaomi MI-2S with different results. I think it was a mistype. It looks like a great phone. But no better than S4.

This means the Samsung version is being held back by the firmware.

and the reason why Samsung released the Qualcomm version of the s4 is because of the pressure of unveiling a new flagship device before every rival company unveils theirs. They had no choice but to use the s600 since the exynoss version was still not ready for mass production..
