Xiaomi originally planned to release the Mi-2 with only 16GB of internal storage but decided to release a 32GB model as well. Both 16GB and 32GB variants will hit the market at the same time.

  4. Sanctuarian06 says:

    This is so so affordable. Sa ganitong price parang entry level to midrange level phone na ito ng mga branded phones which means if you’re more on branded phones this phone is not for you.

  5. kuroro says:

    Is there any way that we can order this phone here in the Philippines?

  6. fandriod says:

  12. dfasdf says:

    Mga ugok dapat boycott natin mga chinese products! Wala man lang kayong pride. Alam ko lahat ng gadgets made in china pero etong mga ganitong company na tunog chinese dapat wag na suportahan.

    • Wreek says:

      Agree!

    • tensai says:

      hindi naman magiging mabenta yan dito kung sakali, cheap yung name eh! Alam mo naman dito sa pinas, hindi impt ung laman basta yung pangalan kilala okay na un.. Ang kinikilala lang dito Apple and Samsung lang, kapag naka nokia ka or ibang phones na hindi ganun kakilala, cheap ka na dito ika nga status Symbol na lang ang phone :p

      Back to the topic, i would like to have this phone baka kaya iroot and lagyan ng custom rom para sulet. PEACE!! :P

  13. edisson says:

    ayoko talaga ng kahit anong china phone kahit na nakita ko na ung specs pero nung nakita ko ung price, ang tanong ko agad “san yan pwede mabili?” kasi quad core sya tas jb pa ang os nya tas maganda ung battery pero naalala ko na ayoko nga pala sa mga china phones..

  14. kuya`dan says:

    is there official service center here? baka po kasi ipasa kay CDR-king ang service center since “china” made ito… hehehehe

  15. ghendoquicoy says:

    When you say China phone, you’re referring it to generic phones or China-manufactured phones? Coz China phone in general for me refers to generic forms (immitation phones). Xioami is a prestigious brand in China and this is definitely not a generic china phone.

    The specs are very competitive to think that with these kind of specs, you’d probably get a price of 31,000 pesos or above if you’re fond of globally-renowned branded phones. Xiamo Mi-2 is a very competitive entry level phone. Please search for youtube reviews about its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi-1 before deciding to label this upcoming smartphone as “china phone”.

  16. Richie Rich says:

    This is a beast of a phone with a very cheap price. Gusto ko sana bumoycot ng mga chinese brands kaso super nakaka-tukso yung specs….

  17. ahmed says:

    bobo lang mga taong tumatangkilik sa samsung or apple, palibhasa walang alam sa specs basta iphone5 ok na un nagpapabola sa keynotes ambaba naman ng kalidad overpriced pa, taena di nio ba alam tong xiaomi mi-2 ang may pinakamataas na specs ngaun kesa sa lahat ng smartphone, parehong pareho sila ng optimus g ng lg pero half the price, wala akong pake sa pangalan ng company at the end of the day sarili mo ang dapat mong iplease hindi ibang tao kaya ung mga naka iphone jan wag kaung tanga magisip2 kayo niloloko na kayo.

  18. MIUI says:

    if this is sold in the Philippines bibili ako. Nakakatawa ung mga poster dito napakaignorante. Mi-2 is the official MIUI phone. Magbasa basa muna kayo bago nyo laiitin tong phone na to. kakabuwisit mga comment ng iba, napakatanga.

  27. xiao-mee says:

    I have this phone. I bought it through ebay and had it shipped to Hong Kong — to my sister’s place, then hand-carried it to the Philippines. All I can say is it’s a brilliant phone, especially if you upgrade it to MIUI V.5 custom ROM. My officemates were astounded by its features and most of them thought that it was an iPhone. Haha. ^__^

  28. Jay Esguerra says:

    Very Nice! sana maging available na ito sa pilipinas and for sure maraming bibili nito since the price is good unlike nung 2 sikat na brands…

    In the meantime i’ve bought Huawei and ZTE smartphones and working just fine…
