Design wise it looks okay. maybe not original, but certainly good enough for me. But I'm not a really big spender on phones. So that price.. Can't afford it. Even if i can, don't think would be spending that much on a phone. And I'm not a big fan of MIUI.. Never actually used it, only playing around with my friend's phone, but not really comfortable with it.

Hugo Bara is anallay retentive about every aspect of MIUI and Lei Jun is the same about the hardware. With these 2 paired you get an insanely good device.
This is Hugo just on MIUI6 UI Motion nearly 2 years ago, imagine every other aspect:

You can't do much with a curved edge to make it original out side of radius so I don't say Samsung copied Xiaomi. Same goes with an LCD. LG announced curved displays before Samsung and it makes no sense to curve the top and bottom.
Also Xiaomi have their own original chamfered alloy frame design since the Mi5 which is very classy. Samsung went with an Apple'esk bulgy round frame with bold Apple'esk antenna lines.
Oh please, don't be such a copycat. I'm not against other phones having curved screens, but at least when it comes to the overall design it's frustrating to see another chinese copycat (if the purported image is true). To be honest, it looks like a slightly edited S7 Edge.
Anonymous, 18 Oct 2016convrt the rate...5699 yuan means approx 57k inrAt $700 we buy brand not a device . From this point we buy luxury and Xiamoi is not a luxury brand . Go iphone instead.
It's too bad they won't able to sell it at this price because of their bloated software. The price will drop faster than a block of steel. I guarantee it.
Xiaomi is entitled to launch at least one premium smartphone with such high price, but probably only those of their home country of China will ever buy it. I use a Mi Note phone still, they make good budget & midrange handsets though.

......been waiting for mi note 2 and i am still since mi5s plus build dnt look suitable for me otherwise its op3.
Anonymous, 18 Oct 2016for that price i rather buy it an 7 edgefor that price you should rather reconsider while the crappy one galaxy7 edge use the outdated/overestimated sd820 but in other side the xiaomi use the most powerful newer SoC sd821 that you can buy plus some other freshly features as well
ithehappy, 18 Oct 2016Ha ha wish I could write the intensity of my laugh. I know the feel bruh, I think, when you do... moreMmmm well I have a Redmi Note 3 and so far is a solid device. There are cheap phones with good performance and quality. It's true a Galaxy S7 Edge it's way better but the way technology is advancing phone like the Redmi Note 3 can deliver a very good performance for everyday usage. Just my thoughts. Stop the hate everyone
Well ,Some Guy at Xiaomi said that we will be surprised ! maybe the prices are what the phone actually worth's and that they gonna sell it for 499! :) thats how ill be surprised come xiaomi im counting on you when observing all the odds of selling a "Xiaomi" phone for as much as an Apple (though i believe apple devices cost way more that what they really should and that this Note 2 phone actually worths more) no its not gonna be a hit so chances are this is the worth of your phone which (fingers X) actually costs this > 499.99 ;) > im !surprised!

I hope that 300 dollar Ximiao will suit you good, however garbage stuffs usually make its way to garbage users, so no problem with that.
Man if that's the price I feel like XiaoMi is only charging that much because they can now. With the Note 7 out of the market they can seriously fill that gap. For anyone who's questioning the curved front and back glass it feels really nice in the hands if you have ever held a note 7.
ithehappy, 18 Oct 2016Now all the Xiaomi losers will move to something else, cause they won't be able to use this be... moreloser is talking.....we get great devices for a ridiculous amount of money. Ofcourse people that spend 1k for a shitty device which you have to recharge every 20h, will be angry. Well it's your fault that you can't see past the branding and idiotic pricing. My policy is 300$, that's what i spend for a device. If i get a flagship grade device like mi5, i'm ok with it. But you can be a sucker and pay 2k if you want, i'm not that kind of loser:)
