I wonder if when these phones eventually hit the US in a couple of years and are either sold by carriers or are easily available unlocked if the price will still stay as competitive as they are right now.

This perception really needs to change. Search foxconn on Google before saying this. That's my humble request to all commentators out here
Soshie, 01 May 2017No there ain't similar homie! Do you know it increases the cost of production when SONY adds w... moreFHD over QHD *is* more . You get better battery and performance for basically the same screen density. Unless you VR there is no useful difference between the two and if you VR QHD still looks horrible (IMO 4K is the minimum for VR).
I hope more manufacturers would revert to FHD, QHD is like the worst gimmick of the century.
Soshie, 01 May 2017No there ain't similar homie! Do you know it increases the cost of production when SONY adds w... more1. Why should QHD ? Please note that Mi6's screen is only 5.15 inches, and with Full HD resolution its density is 428 ppi, which is practically indistinguishable (you don't stare your phone at 3-5 cms, right ?)
2. Though Mi6 is only splash-resistant, you could look at some videos at Youtube, it is more or less waterproof (for short amount of period, though). Waterproofing is only useful if you tend to take your phone for a swim .
Soshie, 01 May 2017No there ain't similar homie! Do you know it increases the cost of production when SONY adds w... moreWater proofing is expensive. But Apple and Samsung both get Foxconn to make their phones. Foxconn is anything but ethical as a look into their factories will tell you. Thus phone is essentially 98% of a flagship at less than half the cost. Water proofing is the only tangible advantage most of the flagships have over this phone. I'm not going to pay £300 more to get a waterproof phone. The ethics are not any better anyway either.

Cpt. Power, 30 Apr 2017I have flagship from lenovo and it cost equal to any midrange phone from sony or samsung.
Pr... moreNo there ain't similar homie! Do you know it increases the cost of production when SONY adds water and dust certification to their devices? Again, you should ask yourself why Xiaomi is keeping the full HD instead of jumping on to the QHD. They tend to give you more while they are not, it's only the battery.
I heard that the Dragon (China) utilises cheap labour at home, the West can not do that this is why apple devices tend to be expensive|| Quality, again, is better than quantity, a single house better built is more than two~Steve Jobs.
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2017you dont know about flagship mobile. just go and take a look at midrange mobileI have flagship from lenovo and it cost equal to any midrange phone from sony or samsung.

This phone is a clone of Samsung Note 5 by its design
Disappointed with its Design

Whose loss Xiomi, this is going to be? Yors nd only yors. Whosoever, cheated, manipulated, nd discriminated with their genuine customers, got wiped out, be it any big name in d world. Xiomi is hardly any name to play such games with their customers. Especially Indian ones, who are passionate ones to those who stay loyal nd wengeful to those who act smart. If Xiomi do this foolish act, they will lose all goodwill earned so far and there is always a star rising up the Horizon! May be H will be d new star, the Huawei, star. Take a call anybody! We are ready to respond!

Not releasing in India inspite of the fact that Xiaomi has an manufacturing plant in India. So strange!
