    Not sure they'll sell that phone for something around 100$ outside of China. Depending on the price this might be a good deal for dual sim users.

    5.0' Screens should NOT be 720p. Ever.

    Other than that it seems decent.



    LOL, cought that. :)

    Xiaomi isn't that great bro.... Huawei is much better. Specifically the Mate 8. Better than even my Note 5.

    I'm going to import one, first phone I've seen that meets all my requirements, only thing I'd like is a 1080P screen but I'll manage as it ticks all the other boxes.

    Only thing stopping me buying a Xiaomi smartphone is their history of having backdoors siphoning data to their servers.

    That's as easy as installing CM12 or 13 and chucking the stock ROM.

    20 mins and you'd have what you want. It's all just software, easily manipulable.

    Was thinking about this phone too, but it's $200+ here in the states(which isn't really bad with it's options). The only thing that is a turn off is that it doesn't have expandable memory. That seems just odd that it doesn't have a memory card slot.... Other than that looks to be a pretty decent phone.

    That would be fine if they released they're Kernel sources in a timely manner.

    They have a longer history of withholding kernel sources than they do of stealing users data

    I'm using a Xiaomi Note 2 as second phone, and it's very good for the money. I use it for Uber app that uses GPS all the time. It's very fast in picking up my location, and has good accuracy.

    The only downside is that it uses a custom ROM that can't be rooted on the fly with known methods for rooting a note 2. I think I need to use a PC to root it, haven't try it.

    Why not? Half those 1080p+ screens aren't anywhere near the clarity of real 1080p because it's all marketing lies. Their clarity is comparable to 720p at best. AMOLED screens don't have a red/green/blue stripe array, they're a mess that cuts out 1/2 the blues and 1/2 the reds and use two tiny greens for a screwed up 1:2:1 subpixel ratio and overall 1/3rd less subpixels... with a reminder that the greens are tiny. That's the same amount of subpixels as 720p.

    A non-AMOLED 720p screen 5" in size is perfectly fine. I'm making it a point that whatever I upgrade to be a non-AMOLED screen. I don't need my my phone's processors rendering 2560x1440 pixels for something less clear than real 1080p... if I have the option.

    I'm getting a redmi note 3 (and I may sell it when it arrives at chinese price and go for the pro), but I wish i could have it 720p

    I never play any fullHD content on the phone, plus all it does its using battery.
