what's the point of informing the world when mi note 2 and mi mix are only launched in China and meant for China market?

I am not s... moreYes, you are right about the flexibility, but they also have to be put away to not waste screen space when you're watching a movie. If you want to tap them, you will have to swipe/tap the screen first, then tap the button.
That's one action too much for my taste. With hardware buttons you don't waste screen space and can access them directly. Also, some phones manage to put the relatively big chins to a use this way.
The Mix has a ratio of 17:9 though, so even with them visible all the time you get your 16:9 screen space - nothing is wasted. Going that route is something I could live with as well.
armak, 26 Oct 2016damn these Chinese companies are shameless,this looks exactly like the s7 edge,pathetic I don't think so bud
armak, 26 Oct 2016damn these Chinese companies are shameless,this looks exactly like the s7 edge,pathetic samsung also shameless.. they copy proprietary 30-pin connector ipad on their first galaxy tab series.. they also copy xiaomi mi note design on their note 5
arasu.prasanth, 26 Oct 2016try to get rid of that bottom chin piece to....Actually the chin is useful when holding the phone horizontally.
Well, the MIX seems interesting until I remembered Sharp and Sony has ventured into that field some time back and even released models with awesome screenTObody ratio...
S7 edge - healthy alternative in terms of price.. around the same even cheaper compared to the global version of mi note 2 (lte b20)
damn these Chinese companies are shameless,this looks exactly like the s7 edge,pathetic
Soukyuu, 25 Oct 2016Looks like Xiaomi has the balls to try out new things now. Not bad. Not my type of the phone (... moreBecause on screen button can be reused for other things, like when watching movies. I am not sure why off screen button still exist, it's a useless part of the front part of the screen. Xiaomi took that part and turned it part of the screen. It's not a hard concept to understand, off screen buttons are so 2010... even apple is looking for ways to take hem (it) away...
Amit, 26 Oct 2016In the review part of MI MiX he shared the person next to me can hear the audio voice of my ca... moreHe said "can't hear the call". The call will be completely private.
The Mi Note 2 has the superior camera. For your money you get what seems to be a very capable concept phone minus the flagship camera and OLED display but with 256GB storage.
There's a quick live hands on here showing the cam:
irritating audience sounds.....very very very irritating...
In the review part of MI MiX he shared the person next to me can hear the audio voice of my call due to the new technology sounds flow through full ceramic what it means pls. ? No privacy ? Without a loud speaker on, if I am talking to someone will everyone listen arround ? Again I think Mi Note 2 has better built and camera over MI MiX despite of the new design and innovations
Looks like Xiaomi has the balls to try out new things now. Not bad. Not my type of the phone (the Mi Mix), but the technological advances could prove useful. And it's definitely not the "same old, same old" stuff most other companies pump out nowadays.
I'm not sure why people are asking for on-screen buttons, I prefer them to be off screen actually. Though I guess with the display being 17:9, they can be left displayed all the time without taking away place, which would be fine in my book.
Do they really need an "in studio" audience? The guy clapping all the time was really distracting.
