Anonymous, 31 Dec 2016what kind of joke is this. i wouldnt trust a chinese phone even if it was the s7 have you ever use iPhone? (assembled in chine) you know what I mean haha
Dude, please stop bully china's phone. I have use mi 5, S6, S7, iPhone since iPhone 4 to 6s, and all is great phone. Have you ever use iPhone? how great that phone? and it made in china too.
I have a couple of issues with Xiaomi Phones (based on the Mi Mix i purchased and returned).
1) The integration with google apps and play store it simply terrible... its almost Xiamoi is making it as difficult as possible to use google.
2) IPS LCD screens (not Mi Note 2) are pretty poor if you are used to AMOLED screens.
3) The cameras are pretty average compared with the market leaders.
On the up side, the battery life was great and i loved the Mi Mix form factor.
Mi Note 2 is not bad looking by any means but that's just because it's pretty much a clone of the S7 Edge. Heck, at least Huawei did something slightly original with their edge phones.
SplDev-Senthil, 30 Dec 2016comparing with S7 Edge with a phone which is available within china is a nonsense...Even if it is available worldwide also this comparison is a nonsense.
Maame Raggae, 31 Dec 2016So far edge features on Samsung devices makes them superior to any other edge screens availabl... moreS7E was successful because of many factors. It's not just the edge screen and it's features. It's because that screen is among the best this year, in fact it is. After Note7's screen S7E screen is the nxt best. It got a great camera. And that curved screen with minimal bezel looks very beautiful and overall body smoother in hands. And from S6 touchwiz has been toned down a lot and now it feels better to use. Many people bought S6E/S7E for just its design only not for the edge features Samsung provided.
Maame Raggae, 31 Dec 2016So far edge features on Samsung devices makes them superior to any other edge screens availabl... moreBut those edge features are not the reason for buying the edge phone. also, the edge features are actually, a very lackluster justification from Samsung for the existence of the curved screen because the software will work as good with any device with thin bezels like Xperia XA, Z11 And even MI5.

Off course tgere is no international warranty for them, and if you try to get it through reseller it is doubtful will you be able to get it and how long will it take to get your phone back, once you send it to service.
And S7edge is even cheaper for me, on one year contract with my operator (it costs me about 350Â€,Note 2 over 500Â€)
I hope sami selfi cam will change into something usable. Its a shame
The price difference is great and fixing a Xiaomi phone is cheap. You can get parts on the internet easy. I am not so sure that "a phone for which you may or may not be able to claim a warranty is not ideal" applies.
i can't get why the fitted the mi note 2 with such a crappy camera. it's not like they didn't know low light imaging would be crap. if you don't need a curved screen the mi5s plus is cheaper and better.
So far edge features on Samsung devices makes them superior to any other edge screens available at the moment.
leo07, 31 Dec 2016Why are they comparing this chinese phone with S7 edge? :-/ Everyone knows which is betterMaybe because it's almost as good as the S7 edge and cheaper?
Raj, 31 Dec 2016When is Xiaomi note2 available in India I love the specs and would prefer to buy it.You will get the Note 2 when Xiaomi launches the Note 3 in China and needs some place to dump all the leftover Note 2's.
Why are they comparing this chinese phone with S7 edge? :-/
Everyone knows which is better
Simple. If you can pay around 5000 yuan, there is no reason to save money. S7 edge is branded, prettier, smoother, more curved, thinner bezels, sharper display, more color accurate display, richer retail package and MUCH better camera. But if 3000 /3500 yuan is highest you can pay, and curved display is a must, then you can buy mi note 2.
But OP3 is better if curved screen is not a must.
WickedWilly13, 31 Dec 2016The 7s Plus is behind both. Apple still has a long way to go to make decent Phablet.why? btw 7s plus isn't out yet
Ye, 31 Dec 2016Next comparison: lg v20 (or htc 10) vs axon 7 :Dor iPhone 7 Plus vs LeEco Le Pro3
