Why is this important then? The Xiamo Two is really that - a phone for China, but what makes it stand out is its price tag. The 16GB Xiaomi Mi-Two (another name for the same phone) will cost people at China merely 1,999 yuan, the equivalent of just $320.
In comparison, the LG Nexus 4 with the same chip and half the memory is expected to cost no less than $399, and in the UK the price is actually much higher at 389 British pounds.
The Xiaomi device started as a project to bring the popular MIUI Android ROM pre-loaded in a phone in a very affordable package. After a very popular first run in China, the Xiaomi Phone 2 upgrades the camera, chip and pretty much everything. It’s an exciting device for its worth, check it out at the source below.

Looks great, except it's Chinese designed which means two things for sure: 1. The battery life will be sub 12 hours 2: The durability and longevity will be terrible Also, I wouldn't be one bit surprised to find out the manufacturer has as the behest of the Central Gov put spyware in it. They did it Skype TOM, so why not? I have more experience with Chiense engineered phones than most peoople have had socks. Pass.
