What impression would the "world's first Snapdragon 821 powered Tango-enabled smartphone" leave when in a few months some Chinese company could be rushing to out the "world's first Snapdragon 835 powered Tango-enabled smartphone"?

I'm pretty sure they teach "How to leak 'accidentally'" in marketing courses right on the first week...

AnonD-529322, 02 Jan 2017asus goes htc wannabe.. selling product at high price. doom... moreAnd yet they (Xiaomi) refuse to commit on my country's rule about local component proportion, unlike Oppo and Vivo (and of course Huawei as the pioneer did it first). Heck, even Meizu is thinking about conforming that rule. So, while Xiaomi's devices looks enticing, without proper warranty, not many people (in my country) will buy them. Most people are either goes to well known brand (Samsung, LG, Asus, Huawei) or Oppo/Vivo/Lenovo as alternative.
Oh... FYI, Lenovo's price is not that cheap. They are comparable to Oppo and Vivo.

What is wrong with HTC?
Such a nice design ruined by the Samsung like button at the bottom. This is not the frirst time. I don't mind how much new tech it has or even they give it for a reasonable price, Won't buy until they have that stupid button.

The design is very much similar to Padfone S. At least thd front of it.

Xiaomi is selling costlier phones now in china. Will do the same in other countries when it becomes popular.
Let's see how will they price Redmi note 4 compared to Note 3 in india.
Have a look at lenovo K3 note pricing and now how they priced and specs of their k4, k5. and k6.
.
But asus jumped to a pricing , that should have done only after 2-3 years.. But they did it within a year
