can we install standard android applications (from google play) on this phone ?
Been using this Badass Chinese machine for 3 months and I'm sure that this is the real deal. Tough processor, wide screen, awesome camera, decent battery life, what else can you ask for? The only thing that annoys me is the fact that this phone is a bit thicker compared to samsung and stuff, but THIS PHONE TOTALLY WORTHS IT!

Very good phone, very fast and smooth. Only flaw is that it's slightly more bulky/heavy than traditional smartphones
I do own one of this litle monsters and I have to say that this phone gave the the real experience of a powerful android smartphone. I had a samsung galaxy s2 and bought a Xiaomi MI-2s and the difference is uuuuuggeeee. This phone is just perfect... all works as it should. Recomended!!

Does anyone know if this will work on straight talk? Gsm frequencies appear to match but was curious if cdma values matched?

3G specs are WRONG! Correct values:
From www.xiaomi.com/mi2s -- the 参数 tab.
mi2s vs samsung s4 vs htc one vs lenovo k900 vs sony experia z
32GB version's 13MP camera is branded: Sony Exmor RS lens.
16GB version's 8MP camera is non-branded.
Better than Apple,Samsung,Sony,LG,Nokia and all others,great specs,quality and design!Way to go Xiaomi! :)

My power saving mode saves almost 50% compared to normal mode. I play games around 1-2 hours a day with a lot of browsing and 6 background apps. And I still get 16-20 hours of battery life. You could install some battery monitor app and check which apps eat the battery most. By the way, removing some bloatwares (which are installed by default) can also improve the battery life.

The /data partition is shared between the two and all applications are available on both system, this could break things if you install two ROMs with different base framework. You can enable True Dual Boot which virtually splits the /data partition as well using, for instance, CWM posted in miuiandroid forum.

Nah, the plastic is damn hard. You will even need to bend it to open the back cover and it won't break, showing its strength. The whole phone is solid, no creak whatsoever at all.
