8 superb Xiaomi Mi Note Pro features that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 lacks
All eyes were pointed east today, as Chinese wonder Xiaomi held an event to introduce its new phablet models, the Xiaomi Mi Note and Mi Note Pro. Being the significantly beefier of the two, the Mi Note Pro definitely caught our eye with its downright spectacular set of features and specifications. The device is so pumped up, in fact, that we think a comparison to what's often seen as the best phablet out there, the Note 4 by Samsung, is in order.

Delving deeper into the Mi Note Pro's specs sheet, we actually came to realize that the upcoming device not only has a robust feature-set, but it also offers a bunch of goodies that are nowhere to be found in the critically-acclaimed Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Here's what we found out!

Sounds like Samsung.. except the price doesn't lower with the amount of work the slaves do.

Really? Cause Samsung phones are cheaper than Apple's and Apple has far more slave labor. iDiot!

I really think their R&D cost is a lot lower than the big names. Beside, pretty much everything you see the in the stores is made in a factory in horrible condition. It's not like I don't care, it's just you spin the situation around, those people might not even be able to make any money without those horrible factories. Beside, if everything would be made in first world countries, good luck affording everything you need and want.

Spending less on advertising helps a lot. And it's not their fault Apple outbid them on the 11 year olds.

At least those 10 year olds have jobs.

Xiaomi phones are only so cheap because they have no design costs- just copy apple or samsung and be done with it Their ripping off other companies is what got them kiked out of india

Actually, it's their lack of marketing that helps keep the prices low. The Mi Note looks less like an iPhone than the Xperia Z line.

This phone looks way better than the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 looks like a toy phone.

Any other Chinese phone? You know there's a lot of Chinese phones with differing designs, right?

How would you know that? It's not like you've used a Mi Note.

Availability around the globe can be but not at this actual prices. Dealing with carriers, service and customer support or big retails chains (online or not) is not so easy way. Marketing costs need to be raised. Anyhow good job Xiaomi.

Who says they have to deal with carriers? They might actually sell devices unlocked you know... which would make said devices a whole lot more appealing. Too bad most companies don't seem to have caught onto that.

Maybe Ray S will post later. But the Note 4 has over the Xiaomi Note Pro 1. AMOLED screen 2. micro SD slot 3. bigger battery capacity and its removable 4. S-pen and its apps

And Gear VR! The coolest accessory to any phone ever.

3 and 7 are the same thing. It's due to using 810 that it has cat 9 LTE. It's implied. Really reaching for bullet points, eh? Note 4 has a 1000 things the Xiaomi lacks.
