Xiaomi Mi Note review: Striking the right note

 

Proper flagships are coming in pairs lately as every maker is trying to cater for different crowds. Apple, Samsung, HTC and Sony - but also Oppo, Meizu, Huawei. Until recently the breakdown would've implied ones to watch and learn from vs. ones to...

Review: the Xiaomi Mi Note is the best phone you can't have

 

The smartphone business is notorious for eating companies alive. Even giants of industry have fallen: Sony is on the cusp of throwing in the towel on its phone division, Nokia is now out of the...

Well built ; Good (if safe) design ; MIUI looks great

Not for US consumption ; Design is a little derivative ; Camera could be better

Xiaomi Mi Note ( 64GB, White)

 

With its trim design, powerful hardware and camera, the Mi Note is a premium high-end phone that sets the benchmark for the company's upcoming flagships, all while selling at a much more affordable price than competing phablets. The 16GB version will...

The Xiaomi Mi Note's refined aluminum and glass design is as good as any. Impressively, Xiaomi crams a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization into the slim chassis without showing a bulge.

Limited 4G LTE support for non-Asian markets and no microSD slot curb its appeal, while it will likely only be available in the US, UK and Australia at a premium price.

The Mi Note showcases Xiaomi's top-class potential to the world -- it's just a shame so few outside Asia will get to see it.

Xiaomi Mi Note review: Chinese phablet dazzles with quality design

 

The 5.7-inch smartphone has the chops to beat its competition head-on, but getting your hands on one may be a challenge.

Xiaomi Mi Note Review: Don’t judge a book by its gorgeous cover

 

The Xiaomi Mi Note has top quality design and feel, but the insides don't live up to the outsides.

Beautiful design ; Large, bright screen ; Low cost

Limited connectivity in the US – your mileage may vary ; Good-but-not-great camera ; Hard to get in US

At the end of the day, what you’re left slipping into your pocket is a good phone, built with great materials, for a good/great price – depending on where you live in the world. It’s a great phone to hold in your hand and it stands out in a crowd....

Xiaomi Mi Note: This Chinese Phone Is Great. Too Bad You Can't Use It.

 

You've probably never heard of the Xiaomi Mi Note. You can't buy one in the US. You should read this story anyhow. It's about a smartphone--a really good smartphone--but it's also about the future of personal electronics. You care about the future, no?

Xiaomi’s Mi Note phablet outclasses the competition for half the price

 

Review: China's disruptive OEM builds a premium, high-end phablet for $370.

Unbelievable bang for your buck. $370 for something other OEMs would sell for $600-$700 ; It's one of the best-built Android phones out there. It's all glass and aluminum and solid as a rock ; In performance—and we don't mean benchmarks—the Mi...

The phone has a hardware menu button but no menus, and the menu button opens Recent Apps instead of the menu. It's rather confusing ; The glass back gives the Mi Note an almost frictionless back surface. Put it on a table that isn't perfectly flat, and...

No phones in US just yet, but mi.com launches Stateside in "a few months."

Xiaomi Mi Note: Not just one of the best value phablets, one of the best phablets, period

 

Xiaomi's latest phone is something of a departure from its usual fare. The 5.7-inch Mi Note phablet is a cut above the wallet-friendly offerings Xiaomi has offered in the past, and its premium design, build and specs put it in the same league as the...

Sleek aluminum and glass build with good handling ; Great camera with optical image stabilization ; Good performance and battery life ; Dual 4G micro and nano SIM ; Nearly half the price of an iPhone 6 Plus ; Onboard stereo DAC

No expandable storage

Consider the Mi Note Xiaomi's coming of age party. Previous Xiaomi devices have been 'affordable alternatives': devices with good designs, often similar in style to higher-end products, but with compromises made in performance or features. The Mi Note...

Xiaomi's newly released Mi Note phablet has drawn a lot of comparisons to Apple's iPhone 6 Plus (not least from Xiaomi itself). But are those comparisons warranted? We take a closer look to see how it holds up to scrutiny when placed side by side with...
