  1. I’m starting to think that this website doesn’t have consistent memory on today’s “Standard” .____.

    for a just 1k you’ll get twice the value than this phone.

  2. I defenitely want to have one of their latest phones but sadly mukhang basurahan tayu ng item nila na di na nabibili.
    Already bought meizu unit. Tagal ko hinihintay ung mi note / mi note pro / kahit ung redmi note na lang dahil wala ng pagasa dumating ung mi 4 pero wala pa din. eto ung i oofer nila…. Juice Colored. Too Much disappointment! I am too much dissapointed. tapos na ang easter chu chu nila ,.. nga nga na lang talaga. for hyp e lang na dinala dto ung xiaomi kasi maingay ang pinas pag dating social media at tech thingy … nag open lang sila sa pinas for publicity.

    1. Just add 2k and you’ll be able to get the M1 Note. Or if really in a tight budget then just opt for the Honor 4c. Xiaomi is getting worse with their offerings. SD410 is so yesterday already. Is this their bang for the buck?? Tsk Tsk.

  3. The Meizu M1 or the Alcatel Flash Plus would be much better choices, hopefully it gets here. I think many local phones at this price range is much more practical, I think.

  4. Not me either. Already had the redmi 1s. 1 gig ram is not enough. And now they are offering yet another 1 gigaramer. My 1s experienced random reboots while playing music and lags when using phone while charging. No thanks.

  5. NO Xiaomi, I have a redmi 1s and iam looking for an upgrade but it will never be Redmi 2s.
    Ano bang naupgrade? Cpu clock speed at lte lang? no way
    at 6k for quadcore, 1gb ram and 8gb rom
    magdagdag nalang ako ng 1k at konting pasensya
    7k na Alcatel flash plus na Octacore, 2gb ram, 16 gb rom
    imagine that times 2 important specs
