Mumbai-Indiand, 10 Apr 2017One query though where is their in house highend SOC970?EVERY SoC manufacturers, especially flagship ones OR one with powerful Cortex A72/A73 or similar, have to optimize their SoC.
Optimizing SoC means they have to make sure it won't heat easily, let alone overheating like SD810, they have to tune the clock of the processors & GPU for the optimal use; lower clocked SoC will result underperformed SoC which won't sell, higher clocked SoC without careful tuning will result in overheating which won't sell too, and so on.
Don't u remember how long it takes Qualcomm to develop SD820 successor before introducing SD835? Almost 2 years! This is because the previous planned SD830 scrapped mid-way,
because QC can't solve Kyro 100 bad energy consumption, making Qualcomm needs to redesign a new SoC with the remaining time, which is why they choose to made semi-custom Kyro by licensing Cortex A73 core design, which won't be as time-consuming as making a new ones from scratch

Tell me the definition of EVERYONE, as the only people who said that are FEW of FANBOYS wanting 6GB RAM when 4GB RAM in Android phones are hardly reaches 80% in physical use.
Tell me, did ur Android phone EVER reach 3GB RAM usage even once?
LG superfan, 10 Apr 2017I was expecting the score to be higher than that but its good and why do you need 8gb ram? 4gb... moreWhen Samsung didnt released 6gb ram version internationally everyone go nuts. When we ask Xiaomi for an 8gb ram version you all suddenly saying we dont need it. Strange. So we need 6gb ram but we dont need 8gb ram??? Do you people want a bigger ram or not?? You all crazy!
king901, 10 Apr 2017stupid , people in china and india pay more for the iphone it has nothing to do with afford or... moreWhile China has s8+ 6gb 128gb for 1090, people from many countries have to pay this for s7 edge. Even 1 year after being released..
S7, s7 edge , XZ, X , iphone 7 32gb , zenfone 3 deluxe ... All showed up much more than 1200 dollars here.
Mixkhata007, 10 Apr 2017Pretty good for an entry-level flagship variant. 64gb rom + SD835 + 1080p. BEST COMBINATION EVER!!!Add Micro SD expansion then it'll be the perfect combination.
king901, 10 Apr 2017stupid , people in china and india pay more for the iphone it has nothing to do with afford or... moreExplain me why Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, OP focus on China and India.
Huawei is the only chinese to sell well all around.
1) Apple is #3 in China, Samsung not even top 7
2) In my country Xiaomi sold the old and simple Redmi 2 for something about 200 dollars. Mi5 was 300 dollars in China.
What I say these OEM are not able to sell all around for same price they charge in China and India.
- Taxes, so the devices can enter your country
- Transport the devices
- Advertise the product
They have to spend money on these things, money they would have to add to devices' prices.
Yes.. Big part of their population is poor. More than people of Latin America.

Shame these aren't available in Europe officially. People have to look at imports and no European support which is a no-go for most. Like the size of it though.
Higher... With 4K HDR screen ...
