People need to stop hating on Xiaomi, it's just another rectangular behemoth of a phone joining the market. Designing a phone in the shape people want it is not copying, giving a phone the 'note' moniker is more of a reference to it's size. You know only Samsung note phones come with a stylus (i might be wrong). You are not going to get a better phone than this in this price range.
Just because a phone has the 'Note' moniker doesn't mean it has to come with a stylus, that is Samsung's style. In Xiaomi's case, it's a reference to the size of the phone, 'Phablet' if you wish. And fyi, almost all the smartphones on the market today are rectangular with mostly the logo and speaker placement differentiating them. I don't see any copying of any kind. That said, this is sure to be a really awesome phone but don't hold your breath for updates.

So they can attract more buyers. In reality, Xioami earns more profit than Samsung. 90% of their sales come from their home country and India.
Also, having a 4GB RAM is not an advantage over a 3GB RAM. No phone in the world consumes RAM more than 3GB. The Note 4 consumes maximum 2 - 2.5GB of RAM. Most of the upcoming phones such as the Galaxy S6 and M9 will have DDR4 RAMs. It will blow the current DDR3 RAMs in bandwidth and efficiency.
The main advantage of those Chinese phones is, you can own a high-end device with an affordable price. It's more beneficial than buying a mid-range reputable brand phone for the same price. Except that, Xiaomi is very poor in after sales service, Android updates and firmware updates to fix the bugs. In simple, their after sales service is very poor. They can't attract buyers in western countries until they improve their after sales service.
Is it already available in Philippines? If not, when will it be? Love to buy it. How much is it anyway? Please respond guys. Thanks.
Not bad phone, but if you guys compare it to Samsung's note-4 it's missing some important features:
- No NFC
- No FM radio
- No Infrared port
- No Micro SD slot
- No notifcation light/led
- No wirelss charging
- Only 3000mAh battery
- No dust and water protection
- No stylus
And this is just hardware differences.
Touchwiz is the most feature-rich android customized interface to date.
I admit I love the 4GB fast RAM and the better 810 chipset, but I bet Samsung will catch up with that in a month or two.
Anonymice, 16 Jan 2015So 2K resolution with IPS is poor for you?
I should say your a fan of AMOLED panels.
Sir, mo... moreReplying anonymice:
IPS panels aren't bad, but they are far from being better than AMOLED.
Note 4 Amoled screen was declared by Displaymate the best mobile phone display on the market:
Nothing spectacular besides copy name "note" from Samsung. And it doesn't have a stylus why call it note?
This phone is more louder than iphone 6? As i have read in comment area which sound is dedicated part than better than any phone in the market.
Azirgi, 17 Jan 2015Too expensive...!
not worth more than 400$.are you kidding me???? with these specifications if this device had sammy logo it would have 1000$ price. Very good
price for this awesome device
Please make provision for a Memory Card slot, this greatly enhance its specification, as it will make its memory limitless!!!
for mi 4 sale : this phone is costly even in 14000. specification are same as mi 3 . just design change. and mi 3 is already outdated.. mi 4 is now outdated after the launch of new mi note phablet.. xiomi have to just set price12 k or 10 k for this phone to take over the sale!!
the only problem I can see with this right now is how can I get this SH|T. I hope it will be available as soon as possible on my country,getting it from a reseller on EBAY is not a good idea, either they send you fake or price tag will be ridiculous. I would go for zenfone 2 if this one take too long to reach my country.

What is enough for you might not be enough for others. People with large collections of games, lossless music and HD video need space you know.
