Anonymous, 02 Feb 2019The targeted customers don't need nfcI wonder, does in China people pay via NFC (for example, Alipay)?
Also, don't know why those Chinese low and mid phones does not have NFC. Even Sony Xperia M, low end phone (from 2013) have NFC.
Dan, 02 Feb 2019True, but can you name some $150 phones with NFC?Honor 8x.
Syel, 02 Feb 2019Wow this phone has one of the ugliest chins I've ever seen!is there something wrong with a phone having a chin? yeah right its not trend at all if theres one lol. go ssss your mindset
A modern and pretty design. Such a design can only come after mid-year 2018. Unlike smartphones from LG, Sony or HTC, that are still stuck with very dated pre-2017 design.

But I guess complaining is much easier th... moreSure it's "easy" to turn it off, but why bother to turn it off when it SHOULD NEVER BEEN THERE in the first place? I understand if the phone is free, sure go ahead with the ads, but this isn't free, one must pay this phone and still get ads.
Syel, 02 Feb 2019Wow this phone has one of the ugliest chins I've ever seen!but look at all other features . Totally worth the money

Dan, 02 Feb 2019The new budget king! A bit of a nitpick: 999 yuan = 129 euros, not 150 (1 EUR = 7.72 CNY)That's the price in China or other county where it's manufactured. If you buy it in EU €150 is generally correct, I expect similar price tag or maybe a bit more. And that's for basic version of course.

Awesome phone, but i need 128GB, so i hope the pro version will not only offer this option, but won't have any disadvantages over this one (Unlike Note 5, which had worse sound quality over Redmi 5 plus).
Xiaomi really did a huge leap with this smartphone and I hope all its smartphones are as stellar or even better than the note 7 but the only downsides are the too many ads ( they should at least decrease them ) , improve stoftware stability and the lack of NFC ( people in Europe , US and other countries need it ).
