Anonymous, 12 Feb 2018630*Oh right, I wasn't aware there is a Nokia 6 - 2018 edition.

The problem with flagships is, when the cool SoC can be good enough for many years, I'm not sure about the rest of the smartphone.
So you have a choice: one hypothetical R5+ ($170 for black 3/32) in two years, or some flagship (good if $500), but will it last for 6 years?..
Actually, if I had more money, I'd go with Mi Note 3, 'cause it's powerful and feature-packed, but not too much. Or other option: iPad (2017) 128 Gb Wi-Fi and some smartphone just to be there, but it costs even more.

Yup, it makes flagship phones but they are incredible high quality.
You may not need a SD835 but for sure it's future proof :)
Anonymous, 12 Feb 2018Nokia 6 would eat this alive. Sd626? How would Nokia 6 eat this with its SD 430?
But sometimes, in Xiaomi's case, pricing on memory options of same model is depressing.

I think, it's actually not bad: I can buy a phone, that will not contain functions I will never use, e.g. I don't really need all horse power of SD835 or A11. And OnePlus doesn't give me that choice, it makes only flagships. Xiaomi, on the other hand, doesn't include a simple feature of NFC even in mid-range phones, which is quite inconvenient.

Anonymous, 12 Feb 2018Who is this clown named Ankit Chugh ? is he replacing Hugo Barra ? ... lolAgreed with U dudes, I also wonder who the hell is Ankit Chugh and why GSMArena highlighted his twiits ? Never heard his name before.
It's a 113,490 and counting daily hit for redmi NOTE 5.
Top of the chart for WEEKS!
IF turns out redmi Note5 is just cheap redmi 5/5+ with large bezels on top and bottom, not The Redmi Note5 picture on its page... Then it's the biggest flop of 2018!
You've been tricked by drawing concept! Lol!
I'm I the only one get confused by xiaomi phones division?
So here how it's look like.
High range: Mi Mix 2 and Mi 6
Mid range: Mi note 3, Mi Max 2, Redminote 4
Low range: Redmi 5.
Correct me if I'm wrong
Xiaomi has too many phone variants and their names are getting stupid. They should have 2 simple series: Mi as highend models and Redmi as budget models. Both series should come in 3 screen size 5.2"/5.8"/6.4". Mi uses SD845/670, and Redmi uses SD636/450. The market welcomes concept models like Mix1, but it should have cutting edge technology, quality and design.
First and foremost, let's hope that it will be the real Redmi Note 5! And absolutely NOT just the Redmi 5/Plus renamed/ rebranded as Redmi Note 5. Moreover, it would had been much better if they were with the SD660 and SD636 (respectively), instead with the 636 and the 626. But having said that, let's say that yes, at least let's hope that they/it will be the real Redmi Note 5! (Again-at least).
