    They should have put the Meizu M1 note instead of the M2 note.. The M1 note, though it was released earlier has better specs than the M2 note..

  3. what about Lenovo Vibe P1

  4. Although Xiaomi offers some pretty cool hardware for the money, Wi-fi and GSM IC of them are pretty weak I hear. Can anyone confirm?

  5. it was a good video… but why not the samsung galaxy a5 or one plus X?

  6. Just amdzing Hey/ attempt shade What do you think, guys.3.

  7. one plus in indonesia is almost 500$

  8. Wished the Moto G had more storage space…. Oh well it's still a good phone 

  9. I have the Asus Zenfone 2 with 4GB/64GB. It is a great phone for the price. I purchased it from Amazon in US. I would recommend to anyone. They have a new generation of model available now.

  10. This is a Cyka Cyka Russian!

  11. asus zenfone 2 ze551ml is awesome

  12. You guys must get this question a lot, so I don't know if you will answer this…
    But I've been doing some research lately, since I am looking to change my tired old Samsung Galaxy S3.
    I've made up an excell spreadsheet with chinese phones, comparing them with the S6, S5, S4 and S3.
    I've looked at processors, gpu's, ram, internal storage, SD card capability, camera sensors and abilities, screens, PPI density, battery capacity, antutu scores and last but not least price as well as 4G, 3G and 2G band support for my country (Belgium)
    Pretty much all of the chinese candidates, apart from the ZTE Axon Elite, lack 800mhz LTE support and this phone and the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro lack 900mhz 3G UMTS support.
    So here's my little shortlist, which would be your top 3 and in which order?
    Meizu: Pro 5, MX5, MX4 Pro, MX4
    Xiaomi: Mi Mote Pro, Mi 4C, RedMi Note 2, RedMi Note 3, Mi 4
    ZTE: Axon Elite, Nubia Z9
    LeTV: S1 Pro X800, Le 1S X500
    Huawei: Honor 6 Plus, P8
    And should it be worth considering others or waiting for the Elephone P9000?
    I set out wanting to get an SD capable device, but I think I could live without it on a 32GB or 64GB device.
    I would like to be able to shoot 4K video as well as slow motion functionality would be nice.
    I also like the screen shrinking funtion on some of the 5,7" devices and since I've been out of the game for quite a while, I don't know wether or not this is standard on all of those devices.
    Kind regards.
