Xiaomi Mi2S launched, beats the Samsung Galaxy S4 in benchmarks
Xiaomi’s phones have been one of China’s big success stories. Affordable yet extremely powerful, Xiaomi launched its flagship Mi2 just a few months ago, and today it is refreshing it with the new Xiaomi Mi2S device with a Snapdragon 600 processor optimized so well that it beats the Samsung Galaxy S4 in synthetic benchmarks.

The Xiaomi Mi2S runs on a Snapdragon 600 with a quad-core 1.7GHz Krait 300 processor. The device scored a whopping 25,913 on AnTuTu, and that’s actually more than the 25,446 score of the Galaxy S4.

That places the Mi2S on top of the productivity charts, something that is definitely hugely impressive given how much cheaper the device is than the S4. Speaking of price, the Xiaomi Mi2S comes in two models: a 16GB one with an 8-megapixel camera selling for 1999 yuan or $322 off contract, and a 32GB one with a 13-megapixel camera selling for 2299 yuan or $370.

What’s notable about the Xiaomi phones is that they run on the MIUI custom Android ROM. The rest of the specs of the Mi2S include 2GB of RAM, and a 4.3-inch 720p display.

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.

Nokia 1100 beats all phones! It is the best phone ever!

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 have a Note 2. "Clunkier by the day"....get real Flush.

13. FlushGordon unregistered

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?
