    I'm still waiting on my Moto X Pure Edition (still being built).

    I did score a great deal on a tempered glass screen protector for $0.95!

    I'll probably get the screen protector before I get the phone, since the screen protector is fulfilled by Amazon.

    They are comparable phones.
    The LG G4 is comparable and is now available unlocked for $400. Heck the Mi4C has identical hardware to 950 and is priced $235 including colorful polycarbonate shells...SMH

    I'm waiting for a hack to put Win10 on the Mi4C or Cyanogen just announced support for the Mi4 series, we'll see what pans out.

    That's.... not good. Too much caffeine? Using the mobile too much? Or just plain insomnia?

    Stepped off the addictive meds a bit. I think my body is rebelling.

    My brain most certainly is too.

    And I can't drink caffeine. It messes with Crohns disease pretty badly.

    Luckily my mind creates its own stimulation!...

    The new Xiaomi Mi4C

    -Snapdragon 808 (same as LG G4 or Talkman Lumia 950)
    -Quad-core 1.44 GHz Cortex-A53 & dual-core 1.82 GHz Cortex-A57
    -Adreno 418
    -13-megapixel camera sensor with phase-detection autofocus.
    - USB Type-C port
    -MIUI-flavored Android 5.0
    battery: 3,040mAh,
    -5-inch 1080p IPS panel
    -dual-SIM capabilities,
    -The 32GB version with 3GB of RAM ($235).

    Besides the Iris scanner, wireless charging back cover (most likely optional) 20 MP camera, and a slightly bigger screen there isn't much of a difference. If MSFT prices this more than $399 I think the 950 will be DOA if they plan to sell it unlocked. Just look at the Moto X 2015 pricing...

    looks like MSFT is in a pickle ._. If they sell the phone to high no regular consumer will buy if. If its sold.to low then MSFT won't be making any money :/

    I don't understand how they can sell it so cheap... Is there some sort of subsidy from China involved since one article said the phone is for Chinese market only. A different spec'd phone is destined for international sale.

    Although you're listing a quad core @ 1.44GHz vs the 950's hex core @ 1.8GHz... And I thought th 950 had an Adreno 430 (or is that the XL version)?...

    ...But some sites are listing the Xiaomi with the same processor as the 950.

    Making a phone is cheap, specially at the volumes they sell.

    Xiaomi and Huawei usually sells at half the price of comparable Lumia here.

    The Mate 7 flagship launched at 27K, the same price of 830.
