blablabla99, 24 Feb 2016You're wrong when you mentioned that ALL companies have started integrating QHD screens and ul... moreExactly. People have to remember that affordability is a feature that's very important to people who don't buy phones on contract with cadillac phone plans. That's about 80% of the world's smartphone owners.
And hey, I'm getting an Mi5. That proves their strategy is working.
I dont see the point of a MWC launch when usually the world except china won't see the light of day.
In my country at 300 USD you can get only a poor quality mt6572 or snapdragon 615 phone,or an old lg g2 or iPhone 5.Nice xiaomi !!!

Labour/production is cheap in China and Xiaomi mostly copies features from others. As you can see here that the design is blatantly copied from galaxy and the UI/features probably from ios. I also doubt if the Chinese do a stringent testing on the products like the Japnese/koreans do. Also, currently the brand value of Xiaomi is low as compared to already established players, so they'll have to sell at low price. (same for other Chinese companies: vivo, oppo, one+, Huawei and alikes).
It'll be, nonetheless, a nice device and it'll surely hurt the sales of other companies.
Earlier the Koreans ate up Japnese and German electronic market share and it will be Chinese eating up the Koreans' (but only if they keep up with the quality)
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2016413$ for top variant seems reasonable. Pretty damn reasonable atleast considering it has 128gb memory.
Im a Sony fan, but this phone will hurt Sony Mobile sales again, if only Sony knows how to price they're phones like the chinese oem, for sure they're somewhere at the top 5.
Well damn. I know I thought it would be cheaper but wasn't expecting this! Literally half the price of the s7
It'll probably be more expensive globally though.
people complaining about this phone plz dont buy it and dont look at this thread just stay away and stick to your crap phones
Sam , 24 Feb 2016Not as good as expected. Most disappointing is the FHD Display where all other flagships have ... moreFind another phone with such a low price and such high-end components and specs. 2K screens of such low dimensions are unnecessary, they tax the battery and chipset way too much, ultrasonic fingerprint readers are fairly new and expensive (which would've driven the phone price up), wireless charging is kinda unnecessary because there is fast charging (I think those two technologies generate problems for one another), so...
When making a flagship phone for a third of the cost of other flagships, you have to cut some corners.
xiaomi will release white version after 3 months but i wnat a black version then it will release it after another 2 months...if this happen again..i will kill u xiaome
people still complaining lol..just compare this phone to Sony Xperia XA (priced at 299 euro)
