Why is it that most people seem to forget that some of the innovations apple claim to innovate have already been done by some companies like acer, nokia ,ericsson and sony ... so all this crap about apple this and that is not something that needs awe in anyway
acer m900 had finger print sensor
it was on wm6.5 even before iphone thought of those security measures!
At least these manufacturers aren't robbing people...
These Chinese companies wont ever beat the current giants cause of two major problems. They dont innovate. If iPhone didn't have the fingerprint sensor nobody would bother putting it in and I'm not saying they are the first ones. I'm saying they were the first to chose to sell it to such a big market. Same goes for Samsung. They put all the sensors they can imagine into their flagships.
Point two. People don't trust Chinese products.
Anonymous, 04 May 2014Apple does not compete according to the Android rules. It has a different OS, sells not based ... moreNope . Most of the user don even know what os is , they just use .
And how can you say product that sell beside each other on mobile shop and carrier shelf is not competing with each other ?

red, 04 May 2014Even apple will alarm for this. $800 vs $320.Apple does not compete according to the Android rules. It has a different OS, sells not based on a feature list, as it has its own set of advantages (and disadvantages), and seems to be selling well.
Samsung, Sony, HTC etc all compete on the same platform, so the only differentiation possible is hardware, and price. Thus, Samsung the current dominant Android player, has more to lose.
nice, i have redmi and it was cool, why need to buy expensive while you can get the cheapest and same quality and performance? sometimes the brand name makes it expensive,,, better choose the alternartive...
xiaomi, meizu and all other chinese manufacturers will never come to US.
3/4 of the population on Earth live in Asia, the market is large enough
Take look of this BEST slimmest china quality smartphone in the world ! I am using it in UK ;)
Mihailivanov123, 04 May 2014You are with luck - here in Europe Xiaomi is not allowed due to missing license for European Union ebay ftw :)
Really compliments to Xiaomi!!!! And i really hope that all this Chinese companies like Xiaomi, Oppo, etc. Will be an alarm for the big brands, like Samsung etc, to raise the bar of spec's a lot more, if obviously they want to stay on top!!!!? And because all the Chinese brands are offering a really very good alternative/options!!!!

I make it a point to never go for lesser-known OEMs, but I'm willing to make an exception for this.. because of Hugo Barra, the ex-Android key person. If it's pegged at USD 300 here in India, I'm going to grab one for myself.
