Put Mi 5 there and it will be on top. Since we're here, have a look where HTC 10 compared to Mi 5 in gsmarena's battery endurance test.

3 years old Mi 2(s) are still receiving MIUI 8 updates.

So which Xiaomi device's camera do you use for comparison?

Why not? Xiaomi is certainly better, especially in performance per dollar.

I doubt very much that it is possible to have additional LTE bands enabled. I read somewhere that the SOC they obtain from Qualcomm and MediaTek have some bands disabled in order to save on the licencing cost. Which would make sense, since their primary market is china and after that India.
Still a shame...great devices.
Bailey, 21 Oct 2016Actually that's not true i own a Xiaomi mi5Xiaomi has MIUI which is frequently updated and has been there before Xiaomi when it was on scale with Cyanogenmod as one of most popular 3rd party ROMs. The only problem is that just like with Flyme which is updated nearly weekly for China as well, International versions are quite buggy and rarely updated.
For example, MIUI 8 has been released quite a while ago, but here on Russian market LTE 800 still not unlocked and Dialer app doesn't work at all, so users have to use 3rd party dialers from Play Market.

regs, 21 Oct 2016AMOLEDs are made by Samsung. It's Samsung's brand. LG has POLEDs.nosense.

Kur, 21 Oct 2016Is it confirmed the phone has amoled screen?Brother All curved screens are amoled screens.
sweggitity, 20 Oct 2016Hardware doesn't matter when the software is bad.Exactly, I own a cheap Chinese phone so I know what you're talking about, plus little to no updates at all.
Yes for pricing 800 to 400, they first spread rumour of high cost and later low cost, this changes people's mind for sure.
[deleted post]Lol, but we all knew who HTC is. Compared to Xiaomi? Meh

Mi5 isn't far behind the HTC 10, it's more of a matter how far ahead is the Mi Note 2 going to be.

And better software (like stock) with guaranteed updates for two years, and the camera is way better especially after the last update.
