Fyi this phone is not like other chinese phones that we see on streets like here in the philippines. This is a quality phone that can compete to other known brands like samsung. This is xiaomi its like samsung in korea or sony in japan. Xiaomi is from china. Just try it and ul see what i mean. This is a great phone. And it comes qwith miui my favorite os based on android. If cherry mobile (philippine brand) is using it then it will be a sure hit.
to answer some various questions:
1)currently as of 210913 this phone doesn't support normal 3G, only TD-SCDMA 1900/2100. It does support GSM 900/1800/1900
2)there are various english retailers like aliexpress, such google it
3)it is priced at 799 chinese yuan on their website http://www.xiaomi.com/hongmi
4)has antutu benchmark of 14000-16000(+- a little here and there)
6)runs MIUI on top of android 4.2
7)no google services pre-installed (i believe)
if i missed out any questions, you can try googling for info
This phone is for gsm and TDsCDMA network. The special 3G is only available to China mainland. you could use it in other country as 2g phone.
Thank you for help me. I was order one for Amazon.
Xexe (Thank you in Chinese)
