Okay, just got the phone yesterday and just completed migrating from Xiaomi Note LTE to this Note Pro! This experience is from Manila, Philippines. I will update as per use but here are initial actual experience. 1.English language is available to set it up. No more google installer in MI Market that sets up your google stuff. You have to extend search usingu Baidu. Search for Chrome and install it. It will then tell you to install prerequisite apps like google play. Launch chrome and type gmail in Url. Login so that android will login google. Then go ahead install Google Play store. You need to install and update google services as well. 2. Yes, there's heating but it's normal as you use the powerful chipset. My old Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is comparable. 3. Android Lollipop has some differences to the miui. 4. 4G/LTE works on both sims. It works for Smart and Globe. The Note only had 4G/LTE for Globe. This Pro got speed. 5. Stop for now. I'll give more as I have.
The phone arrives in Chinesse. Difficult to find the option to change it english. No more languages. No google market. Any google option. You have to donwload the market and other important google apps from internet...(take care what apks you install from unstrusted sources...).
No possiblity of 4g!!!!!!

Not good phone. I preffer my old Note3. 3-4 weeks with the Mi Note Pro. My comments with the new software update:
Operative system just english. You don't have Google apps (no market!). 4G not working in Europe or US. 3G presents problems sometimes.
Miracast signal is horrible. Always cuts.
Wifi signal is the worst I have ever seen in a mobile...
Batery now can stay for a day, with normal use, but difficult.
No MHL, NFC, removal battery, MicroSD...
And HOT, yes HOTT!. When playing games you can fell how quick starts to burn. Above all the aluminium that rounds the device. You can notice how sometimes the game results very laggy and then you see how the phone becomes cold.... but very very laggy...
I repite: I prefer my old Note3. Games plays faster. The hot was normal, nothing like this. I have lost 600 bucks... :-(
Announced clock speed: 2.5GHz, I received it with just 2.0GHz... Announced price on mi.com is 480$, I paid 599$... not so good feedback for this phone.
Bru, 09 Jun 2015You realize ALL phones in this world is made in China?Many LG phones are still made in Korea.
