Mi3 was initially just $250 and can now be had for $200 or cheaper. By that comparison this phone is way over priced.
A Zte grand S2 which features similar specs to this phone can be had for as little as $200 while the upcoming Zenfone 2 with similar specs and expandable storage can be had for $200 too.
So yes Xiaomi did overprice this phone...
There are 2 variant for xiaomi Note;
xiaomi NOTE (Snapdragon 801, Adreno330, 3gb RAM, 5.7inch FHD, 13MP Sony lense, 4mp Ultrapixels front camera, 16gb ROM) CNY2299 (around $350)
xiami NOTE "Top Spec Edition" (Snapdragon 810, Adreno 430, 4gb RAM, 64gb ROM, 5.7inch QHD,camera remain same) CNY3299 (around $550)
AndiOS, 15 Jan 2015Samsung Note 4 + iPhone 6+ = XIOMI noteWOW great, so it has Wacom digitizer. I bought Note 2 only because of Wacom digitizer. Excellent Xiaomi, RIP Samsung.
Mi note has another high end version that specs snapdragon 810 with 4gb ram & same design the price is almost 550$.. But this time xiaomi takes too much..
Last year junk sold cheaply for this year.
Better use that money and buy second hand last year phone.
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2015They have priced it soooo high....they lost their USP. same chipset mi3 cost me 200$. This Not... morer u serious?? look at the specs than talk... phone with similar specs, note 4 costs u more than double its price n u complain that it's overpriced?? get a life mate... though its not that premium to note4, still the price is worth of what they are selling under it...
Man i was So Excited at first to see this Note, but then i find out it does not come with a Memory Slot, Boring, not interested and waste of time!!!
eric325, 15 Jan 2015Is it so difficult to have a SD card expansion !!!!!!!Slowwwwwww

I read that there will be a PRO version with 2K display, 810 chipset and 4GB RAM? I do not see any info here?
Liv, 15 Jan 2015I think Xiaomi has nail it about just right on this Mi Note. Quality look good. Xiaomi can may... moreXiaomi is using the 810 actually. The one reported here is the low end model (801).
Another overpriced flagship with nonsymmetric dual-SIM support (one micro-SIM and one nano-SIM), nonreplacable battery, no SD card slot and very limited LTE/WCDMA band support. Nothing to see here for Europeans, Americans or world travellers. If I wanted one just like this I could have bought the Mate 7 already.
FDD-LTE bands supported are 3 / 7 only (that's 2100/2600),
HSDPA/WCDMA bands supported are 1 / 2 / 5 only (that's 850, 1900, 2100). Many Europeans will be disappointed in having no WCMDA 900 MHz...
I would buy the N9100 Note 4 any day instead of this one, the price will probably be the same after reseller markups...
