Similar with this phone, it has global rom that was recently released. I bought my note AP set, and already update to global rom version 25. After the update, no Chinese word or apps whatsoever. It even has Google Apps.
Actually I am thinking buy this phone in Malaysia. Because the ori version very hard to get maybe go for ap set...any opinion to me ah..... because scare ap set can not be updated like Lenovo ap set... once you upgrade phone version become all in Chinese words....

Anonymous, 21 Jul 2014what abt 4G? I really miss it out..4g won't be any matter of you have limited quota.
3g is actually suffice. Still can surf without buffer and download up to 800 - 1000 kb/s.
4g are overrated.
But fear not, there will be a new note with LTE feature.
Anonymous, 24 Jul 2014Did I read it correctly! or what?!
RAM 1/2 GB, do they mean option between 1 & 2 GB
or 0... moreWow..... Okay....
It has 2 version. 1gb ram and 2gb ram. Again, 2 version.
And yes, internal only 8gb which is not enough of course but there are ways to move big apps to external SD card that would require you to root, or make partition in your SD card, or both. So fear not mmmkayyy.
On unrelated note:
For others, please read previous posts first before you start asking the same question over and over again.

Move to a place where there could be no network connection whatsoever to avoid your precious brain intercepted with wifi radius. I just Googled a place for you. It's called 1000BC.
eifi, 24 Jul 2014Hello xiaomi redmi note malaysian user , it is true networking 3g (internet connection) from t... moreIt's not that weak. People always seems to exaggerate this issue. First of all, It's actually depend on your network coverage. if it's weak, having a most powerful phone on earth still won't do you any favor. Secondly, this phone only support some frequency for 3g network, as you can see from the spec. But fear not because malaysian networks have those frequency. The problem lies on the Internet setting for your network. This phone will automatically receive configuration settings from your telco. See, the problem is that this phone receive both setting for 3g and mms separately which could cause disturbance while using 3g for surfing and stuff. So I recommend you guys to delete both configuration that you received from your telco and set the configuration manually. It wouldn't be that complicated as you can find the tutorial on how to set Internet configuration for your own telco at google. When you set it manually, the configuration will include both 3g and mms in one setting. This will eliminate any issue related to slow 3g.(except if your area is weak on 3g)
