IPhone design? You have got to be kidding me. Not to mention Apple themselves ripped off HTC One M8 design, down to the antennas and everything.
If this is real then it's kind of Xiaomi admitting the Mi4 didn't meet expectations and releasing a phone that borrows iPhone5 design cues just when Apple releases the new redesigned iPhone6 certainly didn't help.
Even here in China I feel the Mi4 didn't experience the same viral hype and excitement the Mi3 had, and the Mi4 wasn't a big enough jump to get Mi3 owners to upgrade so that's maybe where this Mi5 comes in.
first.. they copy iphone design. and now they copy BB Z series design. If they keep doing this they will lose customers outside china. And they better change that "xiao mi" name, for non native chinese that name makes uncomfortable "cheapy feeling".
Been using their phone(redmi note 4g) for about a month n imma happy with it.cheap price n i get more than what i paid but imma also annoyed coz my friends always ask me about this phone(they never seen/know this phone before). Xiaomi rocks

Anonymous, 14 Nov 2014This is why Xiaomi can't expand out of China. They'll be sued by everybody.no, they expanding in Asia. That is why they are now 3rd largest developer
Now Huawei can sue Xiaomi for copy rights if it looks like Huawei 7 mate.
I can't wait to see this sell by the millions a again in China alone. Good job Xiaomi!

seems like one of the best phone coming in the market, but sad thing is i will have to buy mi5 now, as i just started using mi4.
some years ago there used to be fights between apple and samsung users, and now both of them are targeting xiaomi collectively because samsung and apple stakes are at risk, especially after IDC's 2014 REPORT.....lolx ...:p
Copy of huawei ascend mate 7
And this is different than iphone, iphone have bezels, this doesn't
poor this company launches it devices when they are almost 2yrs old
Just remove the ''mi'' sticker. By the way, the front looks like an iPhone copy.
