Overpower , 29 Oct 2016Fourth worldwide smartphone seller with just china market, just look at sony, htc, Motorola ... moreApple have a constant loss in last nine mounths,who wants to spent 700 dollar or more when you can buy exellent Xiaomi phones start from 100 dollar.
Talking bout specs...processrr .....
One thing you guys are forgetting ...its made in china and china own company.
I dont really expect much from them.
They just have one rule in tech industry.
#eye catching look,jaw droping specs.
Low price tag.
They are forgeting to win the heart of the people by just its simplicity and purity.
Price or look or details doesnt matter to those who really enjoy the real simplicity

These are the new small fries... They all gonna disapear soon. Only chinese companie and Apple will survive. Samsung is dying already haha
You guys have gone nuts? this is by far not a low quality phone, it has a 4GB or 6GB RAM with the latest processor Snapdragon 821.. These specification are hard to find in so called high end phones of 2016..
Low quality? did u even saw reviews of this phone and the specifications? do u even know quality standards? do u know the scientists behind the production, working in the fab?
If the mass interest on this phone keeps growing so fast then Chinese people themselves won't be able to purchase this phone as it'll be sold out instantly and sent overseas all over the world but its origin country.
what about the speaker phone speakers? is it one or two speakers. is it loud enough? front facing, bottom, or behind?
How many days it will work? To much expensive for a low quality phone. $ 500 is to much!
xeddee, 29 Oct 2016it is available at Philippines???To much price ($500)for a low quality phone.lower much better!
This is the difference between a big brand like Apple , Samsung ...and a comparatively small fry like Xiaomi. Xiaomi knows it has a killer phone called Mi Mix on its hand but does not have the infrastructure to go into mass production to cater to global demands. It has limited it to China only. Pathetic!
I think, if MI launch this phone with stock Android... It will surely blow up all android flagship devices out there including pixel..
Aert, 29 Oct 2016didn't say they stole it...since xiaomi doesn't have it.

You originally wrote "what part of Sharp did it first don't you get?" After I had already written "No it's not the first device with a chin but its the first beautiful design".
Now you're indirectly saying Sony copied Nokia but they didn't because of the unique design language? Have you looked at a Xperia XZ and Lumia 920 side by side?
The new Sharp device you're talking about is a prototype showcasing the new IGZO LCD. There's a live video of a MIX prototype on youtube with no chin at all, but so what, I can't buy it. People are innovating behind the scenes all the time. And considering Xiaomi have always used Japanese displays in their flagships it's very likely in the future that Sharps IGZO will end up in a Xiaomi device.
They didn't copy Sharps insanely huge proximity sensor, they used an ultra sonic proximity sensor. They didn't copy the Sharps direct wave tech that sends the sound vibrations through bones, they created their own ceramic piezo to send vibrations through the phone then conventionally through the air, into the ear. They have innovated in a bezel-less design their own way. It's not a copy.
Lastly you wrote "It's just another copy/wannabe sharp phone tbh. get real". The idea of holding a bezel-less screen is an idea that goes back decades. Sharp is the first to get close to it. Xiaomi got a little closer and also has a working prototype that has achieved it(without the front cam). Many other manufactures almost certainly have prototypes too.
I'm seeing T-Mobile US 4G bands here: Band 2 (1900 MHz), Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz)... Can anyone else confirm? Phone looks awesome. From the future.
BoardDWorld, 29 Oct 2016LOL, can you read? I simply pointed out Xiaomi have done original designs just like any other ... moredidn't say they stole it...since xiaomi doesn't have it. Im saying sharp innovated further by releasing a phone with corned display and of smaller size than the xiaomi.
sony didn't copy xiaomi's design. Xiaomi copied nokia lumia. And for the most part, sony's design language has always been very unique and its the case that companies copy from them and the other way around. And I don't care about samsung.
The phone marques is talking about is outdated and sharp has released newer acqos crystals ever since. I'm not saying the phone isn't good looking. But it's clearly a sharp and sony rip off, and just looking it that immedeiately lets me know that. Even the tech that went inside this is pretty much what Sharp first innovated.
like i said. I'm sure sharp will come up with something better. I also highly doubt ceramic is that strong, im sure if you dropped it it will dent. Sharp phones are good looking too so thats not unique to this phone at all. They just stole the ideas and marketed it as something truly innovative which is far from it.
