    is this worth it to buy?

    • No name says:

      If you have 10k to spend on a compact 5-inch dual sim device? Definitely!

      Not for hardcore 3d gamers or storage junkies.

    • abuzalzal says:

      YEAH it’s definitely Worth it! kung wala kang alam sa tech like mag download ng mobile Torrent at mag transfer ng music/video files.

      Pero seriously, hindi na akma ang mga non expandable 16GB ngayon kasi tumataas na ang requirement ng mga OS updates at Apps.

    Hmmm, napaisip tuloy ako… Compact, stylish, dual sim and affordable. Hindi ito para sa mga benchmark whores, na puro numero nalang ang inaatupag, LOL.

  3. Kira says:

    So this means the Xiaomi Mi 4i will work now on Smart’s LTE Network?

  4. ShockBox says:

    nice very affordable. Sana walang mag comment ng di muna nag iisip. Nakakahiya lalo na mga benchmark buff (read it as bluffs na wala namang pambili). Why? Every comment here will decide how every smartphone/gadget investor will respond on the market. Kaya mga commentator dyan na less than 2k lang ang budget please wag nang mag comment.

    • archie says:

      Para sa tulad ko na nagstore pa rin ng mp3 at movies sa sd card, turn off ang mi4i pero para sa casual user na konti lang ang apps at spotify naman ang music source e good price na ito. Mura na ang 9k para sa phone na may sony camera at malaking battery. Di rin naman sila late dahil april lang sila nag-announce. Wag mo na lang pansinin yung mga batang hamog na walang ibang alam kundi bang for the buck at cherry mobile na bulok.

    • lol says:

      pag naka-spotify premium ka kulang na kulang rin ang 16gb para sa offline music. feeling ko 5-10mb kada song.

      may software issues kaya ang mi phones? parang may nabasa ako na ang bilis daw ma-drain ng bat nito

    • lol says:

      oh, and you get branded a “corporate shill” if you don’t agree with their opinion huehuehue

    • archie says:

      320kbps ba ang mp3 ng spotify premium pag download offline? Di kasi ako fan ng streaming services. Kulang talaga ang 16gb kung ganun. May rumors na magkakaroon daw ng 32gb version ang India. Kahit mag10k pa ang 32 gb ok na ok na.

    • lol says:

      yes, kinda suckish but passable. kesa yung 96kbps na normal quality na sobrang grainy.

  5. kiko says:

    Meizu m2 note pa din.

  6. pacman says:

    no microsd slot? no thanks.

  7. archie says:

    Ok na sana ang lahat pati price, nasira lang ng non-expandable storage.

  8. vm02 says:

    no micro Sd card slot?

  9. Easy E says:

    Mas powerful pa rin ba mi3 dito?

  10. two cents says:

    pass muna xiaomi. ill either go for m2 note or cm flare x. kelan daw ba lalabas mi note sa pinas?

  11. nice tinapat sa price ng zf2 2gb variant. wala ba tong overheating issue?

  12. archie says:

    “Mi Philippines has officially launched the Xiaomi Mi 4i in the Philippines.”

    parang “tubig sa marikina river, malayo pa sa marikina river” sa 24 oras ang dating peg amputa!

    hindi naman masyadong redundant ang balita hahaha

    • jim says:

      Parang ikaw lang din yan. Masyadong redundant ang pagcocomment mo sa post na ito.

    • archie says:

      Tama na abuzelzel o accel. Gamitin nyo na lang yung mabaho nyong alias. May redundant ka pang nalalaman.

    • archie says:

      @jim Pag pang squatter ang comment, alam mo ng si abuzelzel yan o si accel. Sourgraping pa rin sila sa 128gb issue tsaka ganun talaga sila lahat ng above 3k na gadget e mahal.

    • accel says:

      Oh come on, little archie. Do you even have the evidence that strongly points out that either I or abuzalzal is the culprit behind that stupid poser account you’re referring to? Who knows? Maybe you just created THAT poser account yourself in order set me or abuzalzal up, which, unfortunately ended up as an evidence of your mental disorder instead.

      And the fact that you remember being beaten down on that MicroSD card discussion is a strong sign you’re now suffering from PTSD too. I wonder what mental illness will come next, lol.

      Oh, and by the way, creating multiple accounts will never ever grant you of what you called “anonymity”. If anything, it only grants you of such cowardice! Must be hard to have a crock like you in a household…

      Please feel free to comment should you desire to shame yourself further, haha.

  13. abuzalzal says:

    Hoy, mga Piso-net kids…kelan man ay hindi ako gumamit ng alias, now go on with your pathetic lives ahahahahahahahaha

  14. Grumpy says:

    Oh…whooopeee……(sarcasm, if you can’t recognise it)..another Lazada Exclusive……That is: “Coming Soon”, closely followed by “Out Of Stock”……then a long period of…..Nothing….

    Oh you spoil us too much Mr. Lazada…I think Im gonna cry……
