Hey All

I think its high time we pay some serious heed to the Asian Sleeping Dragon(s) who have just recently awaken over the past few years.

Below are the current Flagship models of some companies which I have chosen. I am not able to post the full specs links here, but you can google it easily.

This are mainly current top models who are in the market or are very close to being launched. There are a few being launch soon but not included as too little is known about them.

1. Oppo Find 7 5.5" 4G/LTE
Quad Core - Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 2.5Ghz Krait 400
Adreno 330
3GB Ram
32GB
Approximate price ~ CNY3.498 +

2. Xiaomi Mi4 5.0" 4G/LTE
Quad Core - Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 2.5Ghz Krait 400
Adreno 330
3GB Ram
32GB
Approximate Price ~ CNY1999+

3. Meizu MX4 (It will be officially annouced on 2nd Sept 2014, hence current specs are not confirmed)
Samsung's octa-core Exynos 5433 SoC
No information on GPU
3GB Ram
Range of internal memory probably starting from 16GB
Estimated Price Tag ~ CNY2,499 +

4. Nubia (ZTE) Z7 5.5" 4G/LTE
Quad Core - Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 2.5Ghz Krait 400
Adreno 330
3GB Ram
32GB
Approximate price ~ CNY3456

5. Huawei Ascend P7 5.0" 4G/LTE
HiSilicon Kirin 910T Quad-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A9
Mali-450MP4
2GB Ram
16GB
Approximate price ~ CNY2888


Based on the pass few weeks in China, I had personal hands on for the ZTE Z7, Huawei Ascend P7 and Oppo Find 7. All the 7s

The one that actually felt best on my hands (I am 6 feet) was the ZTE 7 and its lesser brother the Z7 max.

I did not have the opportunity to try the Xiaomi Mi4 as it was no where to be seen even after it launched (sold out the minute it released I suppose).

I can only hope that the design was not as bad as the Mi3. For me it looked like the giant version of one of the Ipod nanos a while back

Neither did I have the chance to check out the Meizu MX4 as it was not out yet.

The Xiaomi Mi4 currently ranks as the most value to cost effective phones we have yet seen, given its impressive specs and better looking design on photos (at least way better than the Mi3)

For me I would take the ZTE and Xiaomi anytime based on their similar designs, however I have yet to see the official pictures for the Meizu MX4 (not to be confused with the 4-core model)

In the meantime I am happy with my ZTE Z7 max which cost me CNY1999, lesser screen quality (not 2k resolution, but still 1080p 5.5") and ram (2GB vs Z7 3GB) than the Z7 but everything else is the same.

So choose your poison.

I would take the Xiaomi Mi4 because of MIUI v6 and defenitly more development than the other chinese mentioned phones.

November/December will my HTC One M8 arrive !
