    hey man!
    Recently i realised that i have to let my Galaxy S rest almost in peace, so i started my journey to find one smartphone better than mine (is very hard), my first choise was Xiaomi mi3 because the news about Barra, but then i found your site..XD, i never realised the quantity of chineses smartphone, until i start read you site, and now i read every day, and i didn’t yet found the substitute because every day you “tell me” great news about further releases and i must wait for that and for the possibility the phones come to my country.
