MI's advantage here is that their phone line is already established whereas X line is new & unknown.
Sony's advantage is that they have better brandname which will matter in more elite markets.
Which woud I buy ? Hah. I only buy compact phones.

Xiaomi is hardware seller . They combine hardware from several company then sell it in slim profit to sell more . I planed to get mi5 myself also but not because it is better . Its because it is cheaper .

I have a z1 compact and mi3 at the same time before that .
The mi3 spoil after 6 months . After send for warranty it last another 6 . z1 compact last until now ........
Xiaomi's balance for both performance and the buck is a win win situation for me, the 128gig is an added advantage in areas where getting an sd card for such a capacity is still a dream!

AnonD-501554, 28 Feb 2016I agree.. I prefer to use Japanese phones like Softbank, DoCoMo and Sony (NTT DoCoMo) instead ... morewhat ever you say, APPLE SAMSUNG SONY NOT CHINA brand, even they got factorys at Thailand, you also can not say it is a THAILAND phone.
TheWanderer, 29 Feb 2016Can anyone please tell me which Xiaomi device they have and the amount of RAM consumed when no... moreI use to have Mi3 for 1.5 year with MIUI 6 International ROM and at average 400-500 mb of ram was available, but it never caused any problem. I could run games like Asphalt 8 and Modern Combat 5 along with couple of apps just fine without any lag or whatsoever.
Definitely. Sony products have more durability and it's global products which have same hardware and specifications in every country.. Mi is based on religion so defiantly Sony is more trusted and also promising update in Sony.
I saw there are a lot of negative comments on Xiaomi. I feel most of the negative comments are commented by who never used Xiaomi products. I am using Xiaomi and I feel Better than sony.
I purchased Xperia M and my brother purchased Mi3. I purchased as because of Brand by sony and my bro purchased because of specs and metal body. We both purchased at approximately equal price, now i sold becaus i cannot able to us any apps only 900Mb is free on deleting all datas unable to move apps to sd card and took my choice as Mi4i. My bro does not change till now, sonys camera is crappy and not got the valuve for money. My brothers mi3 is still good camera now mi4i Also had good camera. I will recommand for xiaomi as because its good value for money.
No contest; UFS 2.0 and OIS seal the deal for me. Plus the Mi 5 is thinner, lighter AND has a bigger battery. Sony really dropped the ba
