For those moaning against chinese brands... get a xiaomi or huawei flagship first, try it, and after 3 years that it will still work flawlessly come back and report. Since then, simply sush

rao, 25 Feb 2016Xiaomi can't even overcome what s6 achieved !! S7 OS the leader Read benchmark tests of s7 not s6.the Mi 5 reportedly gets 142k on AnTuTu, while the S7 only goes up to 120k~, so... *shrugs*
Johny Amadeus, 25 Feb 2016Maybe Lenovo comming with same specs but with lower price, for example 220euro ;)In my experience, you pay for what you get. The right balance is achieved when you get the specs you need for the price you can pay. I would rather pay 200-300 bucks more and get future proofed specs than something with a shitty display. Or bad UI.
I think will be slightly different pricing if they hit officially in Indonesia. Planning to upgrade to this phone soon!

Of course, you could still import it and that's great, but there is the small caveat of potentially not getting 4G, and not getting warranty (but it would be worth it).
Grey1213, 25 Feb 2016After looking at other reliable sources I learnt some interesting things.
Firstly, global l... morecalm down this thing is already on pre sale for 399 its not "much more" expensive, you must be very ignorant when it comes to purchasing chinese phones
chinese phones dont generally advertise like say samsung there tactic is via e-shops, and giving reviewers samples thats how the advertise, so you will almost never pay crazy amounts as a consumer for advertisement
and everything you mentioned if you apply it to a samsung phone for someone who in the west like in the carribean that will have to import it.....

junb, 25 Feb 2016The great copy cat, boycott their products.Do some research than comment.
Mi introduces the shape that was copied by Samsung....
junb, 25 Feb 2016The great copy cat, boycott their products.COPYCAT? hahahah go to google and search "Xiaomi Mi Note"
Those are the prices for the Chinese home market, I want to see how much it'll cost when it goes on sale in the US especially after shipping and taxes.
Grey1213, 24 Feb 2016Firstly, it'll probably be more expensive abroad. Secondly, it's missing a lot of features.
W... moreThere are actually a few things the Mi5 is definitely better than the S7 other than pricing:
1. The 128 GB of internal storage pro version.
2. The exclusive and exotically premium ceramic back on the pro.
3. The image stabilization with it's 4 axis tech.
4. Rear camera resolution.
5. Battery life since it's only with1080p display.
6. Performance! The S7 will lose by a margin, again since it's display is only 1080p.
So that's a lot of win besides the obvious pricing advantage.
Rotten apple, 24 Feb 2016Well said bro... BACK DOORS End user is always on stake. Try to believe. All apps, irrespec... moreThese chinese copycat phones cannot compete in US with Apple，Samsung，LG，Sony flagships.... One simple reason is they will be trashed and thrashed for licensing disputes..... They always are imported by third party companies. Only in emerging countries like India they can sell directly，because laws are not strict here..... Coming to the point..... I am ok to send my data to US companies like facebook，google because they are governed by US laws... Btw I dont use facebook...
apple sucks, 25 Feb 2016all those expensive brands you named.. tell me where they make their phonesThats what I said in my comments. There is a difference between chinese home grown manufacturing companies (like Xiaomi，lenovo，huawei) and outsourced for manufacturing (like apple，samsung，lg，sony)
junb, 25 Feb 2016The great copy cat, boycott their products.huh?
Sam , 24 Feb 2016Not as good as expected. Most disappointing is the FHD Display where all other flagships have ... moreqhd is a waste of battery, no info yet on wireless charging, and no info yet on how fast the fingerprint scanner is. how can you complain if this is half the price of the s7?
