Counterfeit electronics? Xiaomi use the same Snapdragon processors that are used by Sony, HTC, and some Samsung's which don't use their own exynos processors. Xiaomi use Sony of Samsung sensors for the rear cameras. They use Samsung eMMC chips. Your iPhone is co designed by teams in the US , Europe and China. So design and engineering is always partly carried out in China. The display panels are usually jdi or Tianma two of the largest screen manufacturers outside of Samsung themselves and used by Sony, HTC, apple, one plus Motorola.

The point about the Samsung note is valid but only to prove that large manufacturers can suffer failures in components because they rarely make all the components themselves.

Xiaomi keep costs down by carrying out limited production runs with an assembly company such as foxconn. They only make say 100,000 when they have 100,000 ordered through flash sales each week. So they don't have masses of stock lying around, when it's made its out to the customer and instant turn around, they also have almost zero advertising costs so again, massive savings. All this means they can keep the device cost down while using top end components.

You are pretty naive about electronics and the manufacturing processes. You really need to educate yourself otherwise you will continue to be taken for a ride every time you buy any electrical equipment.

The build quality is abysmal and I've repaired a lot of them so I know this for a fact. The warranty is basically non existent, the lifespan seems to be on average less than a year. Just doesn't make sense to me. Cold.


Absolute rubbish! Some brands are admittedly bad, but you cannot put Xiaomi in the same bracket. They're one of the biggest manufacturers of electronics in the world, and have a reputation in Asia for being one of the top brands over there.

You're right about the warranty though - I would only spend £150 max on a phone coming from China, just in case.

This is my experience having used Chinese phones over the last 8 years. First phone a Star S5, had it about 2.5 years no problems. Then upgraded to a Huawei, had that for 2 years. Then bought a THL W200S, had that just over a year then dropped it and cracked the screen phone still worked but so cheap didn't bother to repair screen, bought a THL 2015 instead but that got stolen after about 6 months.So then bought my first Xiaomi the redmi note 3 had that 1.5 years no problems and have recently upgraded to the Xiaomi Mi6. Now the redmi note 3 still going strong and the THL W200s with cracked screen also still working had to replace battery but still working almost 4 years later.

I politally disagree. I have this specific phone (2nd phone) and it's been dropped on a few occasions and still works perfectly. Yes, warranty is non existant but it's 1/3 the price of similar spec'ed Samsung, sony and let's not even mention Apple. It's a great phone and has now become my go-to phone for work and everyday.

My 18 month Sony Z5 is now pretty much redundant since the headphone jack no longer works, GPS never worked (well known issue with Sony smartphones) and now the speaker has gone......will Sony repair it?....nope.
Heat added. I paid slightly less a month ago on Gearbest (a couple of quid less for a white one), well chuffed about it. I can see why some people would rather a more well known brand (Apple, Samsung, Sony etc), with the stigma attached to it. Why buy a decent nissan qasqai if you can afford a more luxurious bmw x3. But in this case I would argue that the Mi5 s is more than a decent phone, better than my previous samsung S6 in many ways (the camera is amazing!), and well built. And in any case who would keep a phone for more than 2 years? Technology moves too quickly these days, you're more likely to want a new phone within a year or so!

Yeah totally agree that xiaomi cannot be placed into the same bracket as some Chinese brands, xiaomi is a huge electronics company with great partnerships with foxconn etc to manufacture their devices so iPhone quality, china prices ..what's not to like.

Yes if you go for UMI, Doogee, Bluboo, cubot etc...however Xiaomi phones are not in this category. I have a Mi5 and it's brilliant for the money (samsung s7 territory (spec wise) for less than half the price.

To compare this build quality with an iPhone is frankly laughable. The level of engineering is more on par with a Samsung Galaxy 1. I'm sure I've ruffled many a cheapskates feathers but frankly I don't care. These are garbage products with specs that don't match their actual performance or longevity.

"Absolute rubbish" and "your right"in the same statement... Another invalid and completely uneducated opinion.

Have you ever owned one from your comments i'd say no but hey each to their own you keep spending £700-£800 on your Chinese built iphone and i'll keep spending £200 or less on Chinese built Xiaomi

Haha, coming from someone who says "your" instead of "you're", when quoting someone else who spelt it right in the first place. There's no chance you can talk about education you absolute cretin.

Oh, and just so you know, "absolute rubbish" was referring to your point about Xiaomi build quality. "You're right" was me agreeing that it would be silly to spend a huge amount of money on a foreign phone when the warranty situation is questionable. Two completely separate points. Not that I can imagine you have the capacity to understand that.

A typo hardly constitutes being a cretin. Your self-contradicting statement on the other hand....

Made in China and designed in China are two different things entirely. A company built on counterfeit electronics using the cheapest components available is what your dealing with here.

Todays news even shows they copied a certain Samsung model a little too well it would seem... I hope no one is seriously injured by their beloved knock off Note. Worldwide recall? I somehow doubt it.
