    Funny that you don’t include any links to the Redmi 3 and you fully ignore the Lenovo k3.

      The article is based on views from Monday to Friday. So this is actually inaccurate as articles published later in the week will naturally get fewer views. I personally think the Lenovo Lemon 3 is awesome with Atmos, the Xiaomi Redmi 3 is fine I suppose but very predicable.

        Lemon 3 with Atmos versus Redmi 3 pro with SD650 … which one is your pick? i know neither have been tested, but based on the specs on paper…

          Different classes, the Lenovo is 106$, the Note 3 SD650 is 152$ and much faster. But people shouldn’t rush and jump on the first new devices, give it a few weeks for more options to show up.

            Thanks mate. I was hoping you would reply. Agree that it would be worth waiting for the reviews. 🙂

              A lot of new devices will arrive this month and in February and some are bound to be exciting. A72 makes the mid range and up fun this year but there are other nice new things.
              Wifi ad is starting to show up in high end devices and that enables very high bandwidth at short range so you could have a Padfone like device but the tablet part wouldn’t need a dock, the phone would remain in your pocket. Or a Moto Atrix like laptop shell, again without the dock.
              Then there is this camera sensor startup that could have some great new sensors but remains to be seen if their product is any good.

              wow this is cool stuff… me looking up more on invisage… and yes, camera/picture quality drives my choice of device. 🙂 … this is cool stuff.

          From specs the Lenovo gets my pick. I’m sure performance is just fine, but the audio gets me very excited

        Weird that the Redmi 3 didn’t get enough traffic since some people seemed excited about it. The Lenovo is 1080p at 106$, that’s why i see it as important.
