Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.
|441 ppi||441 ppi||441 ppi|
Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

|Colors||16 777 216||16 777 216||16 777 216|
|Camera||13 megapixels||13 megapixels||13 megapixels|
Aperture size - The aperture of a camera is the opening through which light travels before it reaches the camera sensor. The smaller the number is, the bigger this opening is, allowing for more light to pass.
|Camera sensor size||1/3.06"|
|Camcorder||3840x2160 (4K) (30 fps), 1920x1080 (1080p HD) (60 fps)||Yes||1920x1080 (1080p HD) (30 fps)|
|Features||High Dynamic Range mode (HDR)|
|Front-facing camera||8 megapixels||5 megapixels||2 megapixels|
|Video capture||1920x1080 (1080p HD) (30 fps)|
System chip - Most modern handsets use an advanced chip that includes many of the device’s hardware modules like the processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and sometimes even the wireless radio. This field shows what particular system chip (or System-on-a-Chip) is used in the phone.
|Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 8974-AC||HiSilicon Kirin 920||Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 8974-AA|
Processor - The processor is the main computing component of a phone and is a major factor when it comes to the overall speed of the device. Some more powerful smartphones use dual-core and quad-core processors designed to deliver greater performance.
|Quad core, 2500 MHz, Qualcomm Krait 400||8-core, 1300 MHz||Quad core, 2000 MHz, Krait 400|
|Graphics processor||Adreno 330||Mali-T628 MP4||Adreno 330|
System memory - System memory, or RAM memory is the type of memory that the device uses to temporarily store data from the OS or currently-running apps. The more RAM available to the device, the better the performance will be when multiple or heavier programs are running.
|3072 MB RAM / LPDDR3||3072 MB RAM (Dual-channel) / LPDDR3||2048 MB RAM / LPDDR3|
|Built-in storage||64 GB||16 GB||16 GB|

CDMA - Code Division Multiple Access. A technique of multiplexing, also called spread spectrum, in which analog signals are converted into digital form for transmission. For each communication channel, the signals are encoded in a sequence known to the transmitter and the receiver for that channel. The foremost application is digital cellular phone technology from QUALCOMM that operates in the 800MHz band and 1.9GHz PCS band. CDMA phones are noted for their excellent call quality and long battery life.

Chinese phones have really caught up and, arguably surpassed Korean giants in terms of design, software optimization and hardwares over the years.

well they realized , instead of making crappy fake copys they got it that they can make really beautiful phones.. bcos at end of day all devices are done in china .. even iphones.. samys lgs etc.. it is about chassis design .. all inside is same... same components and BIG plus for them is that they ar no so greedy as those known brands.. that is main ! half price phone with same perform.!!!

The cost of the low prices are horrible sweatshop conditions for the workers, who get no protection from a western parent company (Finnish, American, South Korean or Japanese)... Worth remembering!

Did any one else notice how the title of this article changed from "Heroes of cheap:...." to "Heroes of Might and Cheap:...."? Too bad everything's isn't as 'pricey' as precious iPhone, is it not, Phonearena?

It's a pun from a game The Heroes of Might and Magic.

All are just about even except that this around to me Mi 4's the real clear winner when it comes to fw/sw upds. The lot all aren't really AOSP/GPL compliant but MIUI has faster and better dev discipline.
Unfortunately though if you're on Snapdragon 800 already then I fail to see the NECESSITY to upgrade anything less than 808 - 810 save for maybe that miscalculated want for 3Gb RAM config, which is overkill when most people find it very hard to hit that 2Gb ceiling very often.

Shame Mi4 is so thick .. i think honor wins here ..
