Snapdragon processors are pathetic. 3 year old architecture, just added cores and clock speed over the years. Performance is decent but the heating and battery life situation is just sad. 3000mah batteries, doubling in size in 2 years and were STILL only getting one day.
Cutting edge low power hardware, and software design rules supreme in the mobile space. More cores and ghz doesn't work in mobile. That thinking should die in the PC space.
Im so exited to arrive in Philippines im sure more fanswill appreciate xiaomi..
Angry Mobile Nerd, 24 Aug 2014A colleague just got one. Words cannot express how cheap the back cover feels. It's actually... morewell, what do you expect at such low price? sapphire glass crystal back?
Are you kidding. They couldn't come up with their own design and has to copy from someone else.
Not Dual sim mobile it will be dual sim mobile I will purchase first and best
This gonna be my next phone. :)
Now just wait it arrived at Malaysia for replacing my current Redmi Note.
Too bored with Samsung (last use Note 3), HTC (last use One-M8) and Sony (last use Xperia Z Ultra).
Namo12, 23 Aug 2014This is iPhone duplicateNope, you will notice it is the mix of a bunch of devices, ranging from Nokia Lumia to Samsung, LG and others.
A little bit of here and there.
I don't see how no Gorrila Glass is a disadvantage. Not every screen is 100% durable.
gsm arena please do huawei ascend p7 vs this
am pretty sure p7 wins all the way
A colleague just got one. Words cannot express how cheap the back cover feels. It's actually similiar if not the same as the back cover they use on their super cheap Hongmi phones.
Mobilemaster, 23 Aug 2014No Gorilla Glass or other protection? :OYou must check the prize.
Mobilemaster, 23 Aug 2014No Gorilla Glass or other protection? :OPretty sure it uses Dragontail glassing.
OT: GSMArena, can u please do a review on the Galaxy K Zoom or Asus Zenfone 5 Intel Atom Z2580? Ty~
Build the flagship mobiles with gorilla glass & also with memory slot
Anonymous, 23 Aug 2014The Xiaomi UI is a blatant ripoff of iOS 7. Eg: folders, red notification circles, back button... moreMIUI had those icons before iOS 7 was released, and some other stuff. Or Apple would already sue them, don't you think?
Anonymous, 23 Aug 2014This phone will deal mega damage to Samsung's earnings in the next quarter.I guess in other markets...but in places like India, I doubt that.
Also on this phone, I can't wait for XDA developers to tweak the phone to it's fullest. That 3050 battery could easily go for 75+ hrs.
