red, 23 Mar 2018do u compare camera sensors with your xiaomi ? :DI dont own a Xiaomi. I have Leagoo Kiicaa Mix.
And i dont care about camera as i dont take pictures much and camera is not what i am looking for when i buy a phone. I am waiting when Meizu M6s comes in my market and will buy it then cause i need a phone where speaker is not on the top corner and making calls where you cant listen what someone say to me.

I was talking more like Dash Charging , VOOC , HUAWEI SuperCharge or Moto Turbo Charge.

I think if Motorola can make quality phone and Have good charging tech at a reasonable price.

Or If Meizu can do it and they have done then why can't Xiaomi do it.

Xiaomi advertises that their phones come with Aluminium Body so just a plate with 2 pieces of plastic on either end is a metal body.

Please Refer to the Body Construction of Nokia Or Motorola in the same segment and you'll know the quality difference.

Phones are Built and designed for the markets that they will be launched in not for a few ppl that would buy it from bangwood , Ali Express or other websites and get it shipped to their countries of origin.

- Emm, "easy for repair" is obviously better, isn't it? So what does "premium" has to do with it?

> "Their Unibody Metal is a Hoax its just a plate of aluminium stuck on plastic."
- And they don't call it "unibody", so where is the lie?

> "Any charging tech is better than Xiaomi because Xiaomi doesn't have good fast charging and I don't want to wait for 2.5 hours to charge my phone"
- Mi 6 has QC 3.0, is it bad? R5P and RN5C have QC 2.0, it's quite enough for the price. Btw, it's recommended not to discharge your phone from 100% to minimum (which is recommended to be 10%, not 0%) in one go and then charge it back to 100% also in one go.

> "Also you don't have to worry about NFC this is for the Asian market were NFC is still at its infancy. In China almost all E-payments are done to WeChat or Alipay same goes for India mostly either Paytm is used hence NFC is not necessary."
- I heard about it. But all these chinese manufacturers make it possible to buy their phones from other countries, they even make "global versions" and stuff; so they could start to explore usage of NFC on less-range phones.

do they ship in africa ? it if i get in africa does it work

Their Unibody Metal is a Hoax its just a plate of aluminium stuck on plastic.

Any charging tech is better than Xiaomi because Xiaomi doesn't have good fast charging and I don't want to wait for 2.5 hours to charge my phone

Also you don't have to worry about NFC this is for the Asian market were NFC is still at its infancy.

In China almost all E-payments are done to WeChat or Alipay same goes for India mostly either Paytm is used hence NFC is not necessary.

i look at to oppo r15 dream, with high price , 510euro

https://m.gsmarena.com/oppo_r15_dream_mirror_edition-9118.php

after that look at to meizu e3 with very close specifications, almost same & its cost 315$ for 128gb rom version & 64gb,6gbram 284$

& i say this is the most delicious dealing i have ever seen to now

  • Andy

I was impressed... Then I saw it was running Nougat. Seriously though? Nougat still?

  • AnonD-674280

Whats so "amazing price" about it ? if 64GB would cost around 180 euro then yes it would be something but for 280 there are several other options especially as the market is full of these 5.99 inch screens already. Xiaomi redmi note 5 have pretty much same specs but have 100 euro less price or even more.

- Yeah, I forgot this details; and RN5C has bigger pixels and better f-number in second rear module; so, tests will judge them.

> "20W Fast Charging"
- Not tested yet.

> "metal unibody design(without plastic at top and bottom), isn't 7.6mm thin(its 8.05),isn't light as this at 180 gm vs 160 on Meizu"
- Not a dealbreaker.

> "doesn't have side fingerprint scanner for clean back look."
Side-mounted FPS [not] combined with sleep button (as Sony did) is just a gimmick.

> "This phone also starts at 6GB Ram as base variant and has 128Gb variant too."
- Why do you need 6 Gb of RAM and/or 128 Gb of ROM with just SD636, it's too much. And it makes the phone more expensive.

> "Its not perfect but its not as bad as you make it to be"
But it's not so good competitor to RN5C as it tries to look. Especially without fully-fledged NFC chip.

- No, I haven't; I own Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus for 3 weeks as my second Android smartphone (first was old HTC Desire S, then iPhone 5s). Maybe Meizu's build quality is good, but is Xiaomi's that bad that it make them unusable? And do you have enough experience in this matter?

> "Secondly this has a usb type C"
- It's good, but not a dealbreaker. It might be together with NFC, but it's both Meizu and Redmi problem.

> "Better fast charging tech"
- Which has not been tested yet.

> "Slimmer and lighter Body"
- Not a big difference; and they both have bumping rear camera which is stupid even considering cases usage (which is mandatory).

> "12 MP + 20 MP Dual Camera ... Whereas Redmi note 5 uses a 12+5mp camera"
- And RN5's second module has better f-number and bigger pixels.

Trump Fan 1980, 21 Mar 2018 The unidentified author claims the price of this unit is "... moreSame processor which has been used on the Redmi note 5 Pro and ZenFone 5.

It's the latest and greatest when it comes to Lower Midrange Processors what more do you expect.

The unidentified author claims the price of this unit is "amazing". Too bad the SoC is not amazing.

Nicolas F, 21 Mar 2018Amazing price? Are you serious? Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (China)... moreHave you ever held a meizu phone in your hand the difference in build quality is enormous between the two brands.

Meizus Mid Range Quality is as good as highend phones from Xiaomi.

This phone has a unibody metal build whereas Redmi note 5 Pro has a aluminium plate which has been stuck between two plastic bands.

Try opening a Xiaomi phone someday or watch a YouTube video you will know the quality difference.

Secondly this has a usb type C, Better fast charging tech , Slimmer and lighter Body , 12 MP + 20 MP Dual Camera.

Whereas Redmi note 5 uses a 12+5mp camera and an ancient Micro Usb port.

AnonD-731073, 21 Mar 2018i have a question from those who work with meizu phones ... moreWith Meizu, it depends for what you need root... Root access is gained very simple: Create a Flyme Account, go to Settings >Security>Root Permission>Insert the password for Flyme account and that's it, you have rooted your phone :)
P.S. Bootloader can't be unlocked for installing custom ROM

Nicolas F, 21 Mar 2018"His"? You mean author of this news? It's not a review, so ... moreAh sorry I was under the impression that you were repplying to a fellow commenter in this thread. I stand by my opinion that "amazing price" is subjective but to put it in the headline of an article you wrote for a big site like this, made about a phone that launched on the day smells like adv*rtising unless your opinion is very very well founded by facts.
