No notch.. that's nice.
Good design.

Some companies releases flagships with this hardware and price is amazing too, just the quality is questionable

Great chipset but AI is just a unnecessary gimmick. No need for more "AI" thingies.

Fitbri, 11 Apr 2018NO way on earth is that a mini at that size. DelusionalDimensions: 148 x 70.6 x 7.6 mm (5.83 x 2.78 x 0.30 in)
don't you call a phone in these dimensions mini? (in 2018 standards)

Admast, 11 Apr 2018MINI...with 5.7" screen. They need to learn what "mini" word ... moreMini means Small. and indeed. with 148 x 70.6 x 7.6 mm (5.83 x 2.78 x 0.30 in) as dimensions. it's indeed a little toward the small-ish in today's standards.
you need to remember that this 5.7inchs are 18:9. THAT WOULD MEAN. that in classic 16:9 you're getting a fairly standard 5.2 inch of display.
(And if you'll notice:
LG G2 (From 2012) has 5.2inch FHD. yielding in 424 PPI.
THIS device has FHD+ (because it's 18:9) and 5.7inchs. and yet. it's the SAME PPI: 424!
more proofs needed?

Admast, 11 Apr 2018MINI...with 5.7" screen. They need to learn what "mini" word ... morethis is a 18:9 screen. so 5.7" with that STB ratio (if my calculations are correct based on sight only: 80.9%) yields a fairly "mini" device indeed. it's not your standard 16:9 device. in FACT.
if you'll freeze a video on a 18:9 5.7" inchs you'll find that it's actually 5.2" in 16:9. AND THAT is considered mini.
(Personally. I call anything between 5.0-5.5 in 16:9 ratio Midi, instead of Mini. below 5" is mini)
Edit1: wow. I wasn't far! the official site states: 80.2%!
Edit2: The dimensions are fairly compact too:
148 x 70.6 x 7.6 mm (5.83 x 2.78 x 0.30 in)

I Robot, 11 Apr 2018The only mini that is really important is Mini-skirts ;-) //Laughs

Perhaps these mini-phones are made for Norsk Gods. I'm sure Thor could use one now that his hammer got crushed by Hella ;-)

Though I doubt that even Gorilla glass is strong enough for that guy.

Funny how these companies keep abusing the term "A.I." for something that's been around in normal camera's as "Auto".

For me these 2 letters more and more stand for Artificial Idiocy

MINI...with 5.7" screen.

They need to learn what "mini" word means...

Well, after translate the specifications page, at the moment the chinese version doesn't has microSD, NFC and B20.

Perhaps is the cost of the 660... the previous versions of Z17 mini and little had it. That make me look at other models even if i must spend a bit more. Less if the global version comes with more features and a moderately increased price

Do you need a backback to carry your normal size phone? Or truck...

Damn Good phone for the price and feature it offers!!
Impressive design.. No crappy notch but still very much lesser bezels. Oreo out-of-box also brings treble support is added delight..

This could blow every other phones in the Mid-Range category into water, competing against the likes of costlier Nokia 7. India and other EU market launch will be appreciated!
