Also, is the 4X LTE compatible in the United States, specifically MetroPCS? BG.com's specs say no, GSM Arena's say yes (2100).

To sum up, Note 4's processor is faster. 4x's camera is better and battery is much better optimized, meaning that it'll last a few hours longer.

Isn't the Note 4 in 2 variants one with MTK Cpu and One SD 625 Cpu ( Many Ram and Memory variants )and from my understanding the Note 4X is only with SD 625 , 32gb 3gb ?

Personally I got the 4X because of the SD 625 + All Black Color Option :)

2. Note 4 offers 4 colors: Gold, Gray, Silver, Black - Note 4X offers 5 colors Black, Gold, Pink, Silver, Turquoise

Really? Did not find this info anywhere. Do I need special charger or one that comes with it supports this?
p.s. I don't use original charger since it is US plug and I don't have EU adapter

Thanks for the comparison but point 8, 9 and 10 are not correct.
8. Both phones have a compass.
9. The camera sensor does not depend on the type of handset, in fact the 4X can have both sensors by coincidence.
10. 4X also does not support fast charging!
11. Note 4 has Bluetooth 4.1 and Note 4X Bluetooth 4.2.

Depends on what network you are using. Note 4X supports CDMA.

    This thread is a great example of the insanity Xiaomi is creating with their wide array of product variants. Xiaomi, please stop!
