This phone begs the question: for non subsidized markets, If a $130 phone can come with this kinda power, is there really any legitimate reasons left to go and buy $800+ phones?
Why not use the same $800 worth of investment to get this phone (to use outside) and a capable tablet (to use at work/home)?
Of course Xiaomi is not yet available worldwide, but in 12-18 month's time, phones like the Redmi Note will no longer be anomalies in the market.
Will we be witnessing the death of overpriced flagship phones in the near future?
They're already under pressure in subsidized markets due to saturation, and now we're seeing another pressure bubbling up in the emerging markets from high performance affordable phones like this one.
