Xiaomi’s Mi Note is the best phablet you can never buy

42 sec read

Xiaomi mixed things up a bit with the Mi Note. The Chinese company has become insanely successful by packing as much power a sit can into an affordable handset but with the Mi Note Xiaomi decided to release a comparatively expensive high-end device comparable to the iPhone 6 Plus or Galaxy Note 4. While still affordable, the device is more expensive than previous offerings. 

We all know the drill by now… Xiaomi makes budget phones that appeal by packing a lot of power into a tiny price tag. But with its newest phone, the Mi Note, Xiaomi is doing things a bit differently. This time, Xiaomi is aiming at the high-end, pitching the Mi Note up against the iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Note 4 in terms of size and ambitions. What hasn’t changed is that the price is low – the Mi Note starts at just RMB 2,299, which is US$370. That’s only US$50 more than its previous flagship phone, the Mi4, which is now relegated to being Xiaomi’s mid-range device. More accurately, the Mi4 and the Mi Note are like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The looks and specs are very similar; the main difference is the size.
