the Note II is still a Very Powerful device, and this device only beats the Snapdragon version by just 500 points,(not that much) , the Octa-Core version has a higher scorehttp://image.tianjimedia.com/uploadImages/2013/087/OEI9892306RW_5_250.png

And a year after getting your Mi2s and finding out support is weak you'd want your Note 2 back.

Keep in mind that the S4 is a 4.99'' 1080p Full HD screen while the Xiaomi is a 720p screen, which does affects these benchmarks.

Keep in mind that S4 cost 2x or even 3x more than MI2 s .

I must admit I have always looked up to the Asian nations with some sense of awe and jealousy......

Most smart phone innovations have their roots in Asia.....

Meanwhile here in states "Apple" for once cannot listen to the consumers...

Thanx to Android or the world would have been very dull today....

And regarding the Mi2S....I would really like to know the clock speed....

it's sad you measure the dullness of the world in cell phones... You sound as if Android was some kind of a saviour to kneel before. Stop investing so much emotions into phones. It's just an object. Just saying.

Well, what if the S4 had the same 720p screen?
Or what if the Xoaomi had the 1080p?

S4 would still come out on top but given the price point this phone is an effin bargain

SO even these types of phone can beat s4...for me design and build quality matters so i am getting HTC ONE

You are so right............because phones are only made up of build quality and benchmarks !!! -.-

Forgetting that The S4 beat the HTC One so by default that makes the One way worse

for the difference in price, i think most people will just get the 32GB version instead. Well, watch it sells out in hours!

I'm just being honest...somehow I want to get back to my iPhone roots (ie small screen one handed operAtion)...My Note 2 would still be my primary phone...but what's wrong with switching to a smaller phone every once in a while?

If you really had the Note 2 you wouldn't be saying that! Everything is so much better on that fantastic big beautiful screen! Reading, veiwing pictures, gaming, videos and movies, browsing...I mean WHY would you take a backward step in your life or some part of it?

this one is for guys who think not having 1080p screen is a deal breaker,
a 720p screen on a 4.3 inch screen would have more than 300 PPI which is way more that our eyes can even distinguish, so display is not at all a compromise and it is also a good pocketable phone, not the giant phones which are actually phablets not phones

And then you stop and think about the software and the durability suddenly your back on the well known brands, unfortunately most of chinese products tends to break easily... .

What the hell? This negligible difference in benchmark scores is insignificant. The s4 still is the best phone around.

720p vs. 1080p, of course it's going to win. Even so, it's only by about 500 points. This only applies to the Snapdragon variant of the GS4, the Exynos variant scores above 27,000.

No idea why is everyone so obsessed with benchmarks.. a few hundred or a couple of thousand in difference doesnt make much of a difference. If you are seeing a top of the line exynos or snapdragon processor running it should perform really well.

Im sure the snapdragon 800 will be faster then the current exynos. At the rate that mobile technology is advancing and maybe even nvidias new tegra 4 will beat the 800. But honestly is there even a app or something that can take full use of a smartphones power? My asus infinity pad can run anything I want and more.

Of course. 720p screen phone with the same processor and IOS style miui is much less power hungry than 1080p and touch wiz.

How else do you think Apple does it? They try and trick us into believing pushing less than 720p and an OS that can run on a tamagotchi as equal to pushing 1080p and an OS that needs the juice.
