Have now bought the Xiaomi mi3 for myself and a Meizu MX3 for my son. These new companies are challenging the big established co's like Samsung, Apple, LG etc., with excellent design and quality at much less costs. Others include OnePlus and Oppo Find phones. They are also open source and would allow you to update software and firmware as they come through. The big boys do not keep up with updates. Check them out before you spend your hard earned dosh. They are often better specced too. This is not a spam. Just think that the market should be more open to all.
I am not advocating the cheap Chinese clones which are often of low specifications and quality.
