Given that Xiaomi is often referred to as ‘China’s Apple’, we had high expectations for its flagship phone – and we weren’t disappointed. Bought from ibuygou.com, it came as nicely packaged as any UK phone you can buy. The Mi3’s magnesium-alloy build means it looks like a high-end Nokia Lumia, but with a thinner body, MIUI-flavoured Android and a beautiful 5in 1080p screen.
• Magnesium body looks and feels great. • Snapdragon 800 makes the phone feel very fast. • Rarity attracts covetous glances from Android nerds.
• Where’s Google Play? Mi Market is mostly not in English. • No 4G? And a full-size SIM? How 2007. • The keyboard seems to think we’re writing in Chinese.
