    How do they call their phone a Note Pro without a stylus? It is more like the Nexus, just another big phone. Great article.

  3. Nhojmeister says:

    Note 4 uses Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and not Glass 3.It is also expandable up to 128GB and not 64GB. The Exynos 5433 variant (released here in PH) is a 64bit chip currently using a 32bit architecture. I like Xiaomi too but you might wanna correct the info in your article. =)

    i think we should also consider after sales support. china phones have amazing specs but almost non-existent support after selling their phones. i personally am regretting my acquisition of one since i had no update whatsoever. just saying…

    Xiaomi has has the only after sales support comparable to apple. I mean they have phenomenal software support, weekly os updates and excellent customer service. Xiaomi is not your typical hardware company; their more after software and service
