    So the big news is they’re following good old samsung’s habits not only into launching a phone every 2 minutes, but also into naming them with odd surnames(is that the right word?)… Why use “mi note 2” when you can threw on the market a “mi 5 s plus pro prime international edition we’re-not-cloning-apple-i-swear”?!

      I think only the black one will get visible fingerprints easily. I have the white mi note pro and fingerprints isn’t a problem, don’t think the gold will be affected either
