$800+ seems exagerrated
Right now the mi5s plus 6gb/128gb is below $500 selling already . very similar specs except maybe for the display
leehuang, 18 Oct 2016Well if this is true then Apple iPhone is the better choice for me.Now everyone launching phones above 800+ USD, iphones seems to be cheaper option now.
I really hope that is a single core benchmark or something because +$800 for this phone is a lot :S
Vivo 5 max elite is better than mi note 2 as a cost wise.mi note 2 is very costly.mi company change the price of this phone everyday.its unbleveable.
vark, 18 Oct 20166 GB is so rusty and boring, my monies leave me only to the one who offers 8 GB of prime RAM.Seriosuly, 8GB of ram on Android is asinine, an frankly stupid
what devs need to do is, optimize their gui's better. Adding more ram is a lazy way of improving performance
6 GB is so rusty and boring, my monies leave me only to the one who offers 8 GB of prime RAM.
AnonD-597675, 18 Oct 2016Lol... even desktop grade core i7 doesn't have that much single core score And it would be millions of times faster nonetheless, thanks to its exponentially more complex architecture.
Very disappointing. Only because of Samsung Galaxy s7 is going back from the market (because of catching fire problem) everybody trying to replace it including "mi" and some other phone like "Moto Z", "Google pixel".
These all companies are famous for their cheap prices but only to replace Samsung they are playing these tricks. Let's see how far they go.
If Xiaomi will start selling Mi line with that pricing, someone will fill the void of affordable flagships. We got Meizu, Oneplus and loads of other brands that will be happy to step in. This cannot be stopped anymore, the amount of people that refuse to pay 900 or 1000Â€ for a smartphone is getting bigger every day. I like Xiaomi, but it's not irrepleaceable.
PD, 18 Oct 2016Xiomi management is getting greedy, is this the surprise which CEO was talking about, if yes i... moreWhy are they getting greedy its one phone out their whole range.
its not a fail just because you think it is
It's obviously fake. I can make something like this in 2 minutes and upload it trying to fool others too.
The only plus point of Mi is good specs at affordable price. If price factor is gone then no reason to opt for Mi.
I don't think that big number in the middle is the pricing of the phone, it could the benchmark score of the phone.
Herodroid, 18 Oct 2016lol, 800$+ for a chinese phone with chinese android skins which does not get any updates. Wow ... moreFYKI, Even iPhones are made in China so don't mock chinese manufacturing blindly. Also, Chinese skins are bad?? The MIUI skin is considered one of the fastest. No Updates? You wouldn't make this statement if you had experienced any Xiaomi phone. They give more regular updates than other top manufactures like Samsung and Huawei. Also 'most' people like the phones with small bezel and such people are not 'rare'. People with very less common sense who arrive at many wrong conclusions are rare (like you).
Xiomi management is getting greedy, is this the surprise which CEO was talking about, if yes its total fail
Looks like the Xiomi top guys are getting greedy, will definitely back fire.
