    those prices are stupid, for that you can buy a samsung phone too. Xiaomi is very dissapointed these days in prices. They used to be good

      The difference is Xiaomi actually makes good software. With Samsung you get invasive apps trying to take your contacts and other data, and touchwiz.

        Galaxy S5. Currently sold for 390 euro in netherlands and prices keep dropping. And that’s including a whopping 21% tax.
        On Taobao they sell for 2300cny.

        The LG G3 can be had for as little as 345 euro in euroe and just over 1800cny on taobao.

        At the current rate 2499 cny is 377 euro.

        Even for chinese standards a Mi Note is expensive.

        How about Huawei then? Mate 7 in europe: 395 euro. In China: 3000cny = 445 euro. I wonder if the Mate8 will still be sold for cheap after the decline of the euro rate.

          S5/G3 are almost 12months old. Should compare with what recent latest flagships price.

          But still, with MIUI and the Mi Note hardware offer @ 2499CNY are cheaper than established brand like Samsung or HTC or Sony.

    Dear Xiaomi,
    please, stop this bullshit.
    Just release the regular black version from day one for people who doesn’t care of Jackie Chan, Hello Kitty and Mazinger!
    And also, release the FDD LTE version from day one as well.
    Best regards

    Can you even buy the Mi Note Pro yet? Is it vaporware?

    Possibly manufacturing/limited yield issues relating to the black model in disguise.
