Just wanted to tell you that I've ordered a Xiaomi M2S 16GB version (Snapdragon 600, 4x1.7GHz, 2GB RAM, 8MP camera, replaceable battery) and got it working on Bell Mobility HSPA+. Phone is supporting 850 and 1900MHz frequencies and it's absolute beast! I've got 27780 on Antutu.
Haven't tested the battery life but it's much much better than my old Samsung i9000. Even with the standard 2000mAh BM20 battery. For example, I charge the battery before going to sleep and leave the phone unplugged. When I check it the morning, it drops about 2-3% overnight.
First things I did:
- installed Google Play with services through their MiMarket (just search for "google" there)
- installed Nova Launcher and made it default. I don't like the standard MIUI launcher cuz it's too iOS-like.
Got it from Aliexpress. 330cad + 20 for delivery. Asked to pack like a gift :)
I sorted sellers by reputation and how many devices were sold just to be sure that I won't get some fake. Also ali uses so-called "escrow" method, when seller only gets money after buyer receives the device and confirms that this is what he ordered :) No Paypal tho'
