Most importantly, this version should come with a vastly improved Trojan.
Maybe that why they needed Google's own Hugo Barra?
AnonD-277998, 17 Aug 2014IPhone 5/5s & ios7 copycat!Well then u can use android ios for 13999....not everyone can afford 50-80k iPhones...n its no harm for u....well xiaomi beware of apple suit
It's not fair policy to give updates only flagships, it discriminates againsts other sibblings. There should be fundamental right for each mobile to have future update.
I've seen zero innovation come out of Xiaomi since Hugo Barra joined.
I've thought for quite a while now Xiaomi brought him on-board not for his expertise, but instead just to bring more credibility and marketability to the Xiaomi brand -- and I'm really starting to think the latter is true. He just brings a recognizable face to what otherwise would just be another Chinese mobile brand, I wonder if he even comes in to the office or Xiaomi execs just tell him to go out and enjoy his time in China and that they'll call if they need him for anything.
He's obviously not having enough influence to change their copy-cat ways, unless he's supporting it.
Anonymous, 17 Aug 2014iOS 7 lookalike. Not very original. Even the compass looks identical. Yeah, it's ugly as h*ll. MIUI has always been ugly, but this new one is just even worse!
The beauty of android is that it can be made to look like any OS
Holy sh*t... Another competitive for Samsung Android phones. How can Samsung will sell million of there Galaxy Alpha?
Shouldn't we worry? Enjoy your moment the Chinese still need to copying us. They are now making device so much cheaper already, when they start to produce better design than us. Everyone in North America will be jobless and hopeless.

These chinese companies can do nothing but follow Apple.
the MI-4 is copy of iPhone 5 and MiPad looks exactly like iPad Air.
