There are a lot of phone manufacturers right now, so buying a 700 dollar phone from samsung, htc, sony, apple etc is a big mistake. Price should be lower becuse it is not monopolize by one company. If they cost s lot on production and rnd its not your problem anymore. But just look around you there are a lot of good phones with very low price.

khan, 10 Feb 2016its not bad ..but this is now depend upon price Anything over $450 is overpriced. Even my family & friends do not recommend me to buy one when I told them I'm waiting for Xiaomi Mi 5. LOLLL

All I'm saying is the Xiaomi official specs (and retail box) don't mention it, therefore they have no obligation to put it in the product you buy.
Anonym, 09 Feb 2016Ok, read the first paragraph:
http://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_mi_4-review-1119p3.phpAre you saying that the writer has more knowledge than Xiaomi & the Gorilla Glass Team who are working behind the technology ? The article has explained that Mi4 is using different glass protection called Corning Concore, which is also produced by the same company as Gorilla Glass 3 & 4. Did you even bother reading the article ?
And today I've got à reply from corning team :
The two products serve different applications. Gorilla Glass is intended for demanding designs and provides high damage resistance through TRADITIONAL discrete-cover glass manufacturing. Concore Glass is designed for a DIFFERENT touch screen technology and manufacturing process, used by some device manufacturers. Concore Glass delivers outstanding damage resistance compared to soda-lime glass, which has been traditionally used for this touch technology. Furthermore, it offers similar scratch resistance as Gorilla Glass.
The Gorilla Glass Team
Is the Xiaomi Mi 4Â’s screen covered with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass?
The short answer is, no. The long answer however, explains why. The Mi 4 uses OGS technology for its display, and Gorilla Glass doesnÂ’t play well with it. Therefore, Xiaomi has layered the Mi 4Â’s screen with Corning Concore, another scratch-resistant solution from the same brand that makes Gorilla Glass.
Concore Glass is an OGS Laminated Display from Corning, the manufacturer of Gorilla Glass. Concore Glass is as hard, resistant to scratches & damage as with Gorilla Glass. Concore Glass is also known as Fit Glass because of the laminated display technology used in which Protection Glass and Touch device is integrated into one unit.
They are basically the same in terms of hardness and resistance to scratches. But they are used in different applications. Concore glass is part of a display and Gorilla class is used to protect a display from damage. CONCORE GLASS COMBINES DISPLAY & PROTECTION GLASS INTO ONE. This reduces the thickness of the display.

The answer is Mi4 HAS glass protection. It is not Gorilla Glass, but it is Corning Concore.

Do you think they will call it a flagship model if they don't ? You can easily check out the specs for Mi 3 & 4 and see if they have glass protection, and then ask yourself if 5 is smaller than 3/4 ?
