  1. What happened to xiaomi?
    How can they bring such a useless design?

    The device length is 155.5 mm which is far more than Redmi Note 4.

    Also no symmetry in the design.

    Battery capacity is low.

    This device will mark the beginning of xiaomi shutdown in India if launched with same specification in India.

    I think Xiaomi too want to exit from mobiles due to low margin and shift to accessories where margin is high.

  2. Rumours were that its 5.1 inch with 4000 mAH battery. Dunno why battery size has been shrinked?

    Also front camera is not as per the Oppo/Gionee stds which looses out on Selfie crazy people. Dual front camera is need of the hour.

  3. Waiting fir lenovo vibe k7 note
    Teaser relese with video
    Coming soon…
    I think its better than mi 5x
    Tease saying…

  4. I would love to see the front mount fingerprint scanner, top & bottom bezel to be less & at least 630 SoC…

  5. I am pretty sure that they will price it north of 16k. It’s basicaly Redmi Note 4 with Dual cam and lower battery.

  6. no competition for coolpad 13mp dual camera and 4000mah battery, coolpad cool 1 duo

  7. Another Dull screen from Xiaomi..

    Unless they move to S Amoled dislplay these junk phones are a Big NO…..

    Now all good phones have Amoled display and people who opt for Non Amoled display are Big Fool….

    I am waiting for Samsung J7 Pro which has a gorgeous Screen….

  8. The key attraction is that it is Chinese and its already a NO
    for chinese Crap
    no matter it is mi or whatever.

    Every penny counts
    Every Soldier life counts.

  9. All looks good, but Xiaomi has made a huge mistake on Battery capacity, a 3080 mAh battery on a 5.5 inch mobile, makes it a no no. Just to get slim looks, cutting battery capacity, is a dumb decision, which surely will result in low sales.
