Awesome, battery capacity is on the low side for a 5.7" QHD phone, better be a power efficent display

It's one of the first phones to use DDR4 which is a much efficient RAM technology than DDR3. I bet it's gonna last longer than phones with larger batteries.

And where in the US is the State China????? 'Cause that's where iPhones are assembled from "local and imported parts" not necessarily from America.

Then you forget that it has more RAM, which means it will consume more energy. You can't put a RAM to 'sleep' or hotplug that. So what you gain by LPDDR4 is most likely reduced by higher amount of RAM.

LG G Flex 2 release date is set in the first half of 2015 and the handset will debut first in Korea. So technically, Xioami Mi note Pro is the first true snapdragon 810 to be released in China by the end of January.

Try a better job than copy-paste. There is nothing in there which won't be available in all flagships phones in 2015.

Nothing special about both cameras. They are fairly standard. Fancy names for curved glasses. Bezels isn't slim. Almost everbody prefers thicker phones with larger batteries.

Xiaomi, stop, just stop. Don't copy Apple products any further, and It's about time you should be ashamed of yourself by now. By the way, This one exactly looks like a miniatured model of ipad

Camera is such an old tech. IMX 214 is so so outdated.
