sexiest xiaomi phone yet not too sure about those thick bezels,cant wait for th mi3,
But it has no WCDMA so …. it’s not for me.
very poor idol x clone..-)
nice price for phone but the resellers increase the prices all the time -_- and the million question what are the network bands?
2G: GSM ?/ ? / ? / ?MHz
3G: HSDPA ?/ ? / or WCDMA ?/ ? / ? / ? MHz ?????????
heyy andi…can you tell me the name of the song used in this video?? tried finding using lyrics and shazam…no luck!!
It looks really big compared with the Mi2S !
Those bezels.What is it with budget phones and navigation buttons that don’t light?
2000mha for a 4,7 inch, so a fail, will not hold longer than half a day, ohhh Xiaomi don’t try to satisfy everybody and produce cheap phones only to satisfy this segment. Until now you had really awesome high quality phones that have been one of the fastest ever.
Zopo C2 has hte same hardware but with a 5″ 1080p display, it has a 2A battery, like this one, and everyone who has it says that it last like any phone. 6589 is very energy efficient with that v7 cores, it seems.
Do you think the Mi3 will be a beast ?
There is a product announcement from XIaomi tomorrow, it could be this phone.
Waiting for more news about mi3…..according to xiaomi habits in releasing their s version phone, when will they release mi3s? Any clue?
hongmi is officially launched! the actual price is less than the rumoured!
Some international reseller are already selling it, less than 200usd in this one.
