The Mi Note its first high-end dual SIM phablets presented in two well-equipped versions: The “Note” comes with 5.7 inch (14.5 cm) Full HD display and a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor and 3 GB RAM – and the version Mi Note Pro is the same dimensions even better: Quad-HD display, a Snapdragon 810 processor and 4 GB of RAM on board.
An official sales outside China is not currently announced. In Germany not so far been generally Xiaomi phones sold directly, but must be in an online store for the availability reseller or by importing China mobile phones are ordered.
In version Mi touch the LCD screen Full HD resolution provides 5.7 inches diagonal, which corresponds with 1920 x 1080 pixels of a pixel density of 386 ppi. This is sufficient significantly to the ever so closer examination reveal no more pixels stages can.
From the LCD technology promises Xiaomi itself or its customers even better contrast ratios compared to other panel technologies (eg AMOLED).
When OS are the two latest Android versions in conversation, so Android 4.4.4 or Android 5 – presumably as an update after launch. About the actual operating system Xiamoi sets as always its user interface MIUI , which we liked in previous tests – this time in the current version MIUI 6More. MIUI .
On paper, Xiaomi can no slouch when it comes to the front and back camera, such as the quality actually fails, cleared test course only a Mi Note. But here already the most important values that apply for the Pro version.
- The main camera on the back photographed with 13 megapixels and is supported among other things by a Sony CMOS sensor and optical image stabilizer. A large maximum aperture is also possible to f2.0 brightness are indicated. A dual LED flash Philips ensures brightness.
- The front camera is becoming increasingly important especially for selfies or sometimes a video chat. Here Xiaomi has even higher resolution than the new Samsung Galaxy Note Edge (4.0 to 3.7 megapixels).
LTE dual SIM
Gradually now released in Germany the first LTE dual SIM models, but the Mi Note goes even further: According to Xiaomi announcement both SIM cards slots support the 4G standard: ” Dual SIM 4G ” is the official statement.
So you should therefore use both SIM1 and SIM2 on LTE. Whether it is compatible with all German 4G network frequencies, as we explain in the upcoming update. It is supported in any case both FDD and TDD.
The Note and Note Pro is the way for both micro-SIM as well as nano-SIM capable.
With the highend Mi to touch as well as the touch Pro obviously not only the technology, but also the appearance score. Both on the front and on the back is Xiaomi at the touch devices on curved glass (Gorilla Glass 3), wherein the front side only very slightly curved, the back is rounded on the other hand clearly on edge. To test and demonstrate the stability, let the moderator during the unboxing events a score of 1.50m height fall that survived the fall unscathed.
The design is reminiscent some likely strongly to a very well known superphone brand. ? The rounded edges with metal frame and clear lines in any event be very classy – and in product presentation Xiaomi has himself repeatedly drawn the comparison with the iPhone 6 Plus.Incidentally called Xiaomi also the Apple China.
Comparing once the note with the iPhone 6 Plus, falls on this is that the Xiaomi dual SIM model, despite the larger screen (5.7 “to 5.5”) a slightly flatter housing satisfies (0.70 to 0.71 cm). In addition, the note with 161g is lighter, the Note Pro with 175g contrast minimally heavier than the 6 Plus (172g).
How good are the individual components in detail, a Xiaomi Mi must clarify touch test, the qualitative requirements for good results seem to be, however, given and promises a high rating in the dual-SIM mobile phone test : Beginning with Snapdragon processors via an LED panel up to the main camera that uses a Sony CMOS sensor.
More information and technical details will follow soon in an update.
