  • Every windows fan who wants a high spec PC in an economical package is interested.
  • Looks promising, wondering how it would cost in the middle east
  • Probably 2,625 SAR
  • All i want is windows 10 mobile ir more devices than mi4 lte. The notebook looks great, but it's far above my budget
  • Wish it was on the Mi4w
  • Will it have a Pen?
  • If this comes to the US, I might consider buying it.
  • Is the brand any good? $1000 seems kinda cheap for those specs. It probably has bad heating issues and cheap components that will break in 1 year.
  • Xiaomi makes a lot of cheap (as in cost) Android phones with almost flagship specs for what they're sold for. I personally have no experience with Xiaomi however. I also have no ties with Xiaomi.
  • I know what you mean.  Like the rest of us, you're used to being taken advantage of by Samsung, Apple and the rest. Got used to believing you had to spend your inheritance for the promise of reliability. Check out the brand itself then make you decision. Me, I would buy the product based on its reputation alone. Samsung, HTC and the like is going to be feeling it too with this new wave of high-end specs showing up in midrange phones like the ZTE Axon 7 and the OnePlus 3 both at 400 bucks. ZTE Axon 7 is offering a 2 year limited warranty. I'm hoping they do the same for Windows phone.
    Both run android but my only point here is that things are a changin' out there and I suspect if Microsoft expects to stay in the phone game, their prices and spec will need to compete.
  • ZTE and OnePlus have no good distribution and support channels in USA unlike Samsung.  Those products represent a niche.  No other competitor will care until they have a distribution channel.  When Alibaba has setup operations in the USA, then there will be something to talk about.
  • Niche?  Not sure how you're representing that term here. Anyway, if support channels or lack thereof is a thing for you, then of course use your own judgment there. Dealing directly with the company is what there two are offering. (In my mind, no different than what Google offered with its first device, it had NO support channels, NONE) So far, I have not read many horror stories. Again, when dealing with any company, if you don't have a comfort level established for any reason, pass em by. I think there is a growing trend of this you describe as a niche market. From what I've seen from at least half of those that visit this site is a sensitivity to price no matter what it is. That my friend is a big A niche.
  • I have a Xiaomi Mi4c phone. Build quality is awesome and specs are somewhere between Galaxy S6 and S7. Phone cost less than S6 today. It's the only android device I can use........oh how much I miss Windows 10 Mobile.
  • There is something very "Chinese" about watching a film which was filmed by filming a playing film.
  • I assumed it would be a leaked video of some testing done by their engineers or factory. This is just a leaked advertisement.
  • Thats China price, where they make it. It will cost about $400 more in the USA I guess. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • You said that's a China price like you know this for a fact. 
  • Wow! Former 1320 user. Posted from the Philippines.
  • Looks great, too bad Surface has integrated itself in my life entirely though. I use it for foreign language studies so pen input for Kanji and hangul is essential. It takes up less space in class on my desk too. ^^
  • Are these prices right?
  • I wish they had a touchscreen option.
  • The pro model has pretty impressive ram and cpu for its price, but did they cheap out on the gpu and just went for intel intergrated graphics is the real question. Oh, and who the hell install 6700k on a laptop. I swear by my balls that the laptop would constantlythermal throttle under stress.
