When XiaoMi Mi3 being announced a few months before, it was described as the world’s fastest smartphone

and also the first smartphone with Snapdragon 800 MSM8974AB processor. The popular Chinese brand finally

offered the XiaoMi Mi3 WCDMA version on sale two days ago but buyers reported that the devices received

are different from the one advertised by XiaoMi.


Several users posted on the XiaoMi forum that the XiaoMi Mi3 devices received were not powered by the

much-advertised Snapdragon 800 MSM8974AB but another Snapdragon 800 processor – MSM8274AB.

Many of the buyers had reported to the Chinese authorities regarding this issue.

One of the buyers had posted out the benchmark score of the XiaoMi MI3 with MSM8274AB. It seems
like
the performance of Snapdragon 800 MSM8274AB is on par with MSM8974AB, still top of all Smartphones in the market.

On the other hand, XiaoMi website still listed that the Mi3 WCDMA version is powered by a quad-core

processor of Snapdragon 800 MSM8974AB series. There is a footnote below stated that Snapdragon

800 MSM8974AB series has three models -MSM8974AB, MSM8674AB and MSM8274AB. The footnote is

clearly a misleading statement because MSM8674AB and MSM8274AB are not under the Snapdragon

800 MSM8974AB.


Actually, Snapdragon 800 series has four different models – MSM8974 (4G LTE), MSM8674 (CDMA),

MSM8274 (HSPA+) and MSM8074 (no modem). All models of Snapdragon 800 series have the same performance

except the modem chipset inside. This is why the benchmark score of MSM8274AB is still top.


It is a truth that XiaoMi Mi3 WCDMA doesn’t come with a Snapdragon 800 MSM8974AB inside. Many buyers had

expressed their disappointment on the XiaoMi forum on this issue. A popular brand likes XiaoMi should not mislead

the consumers with wrong information about their products.


A few years before, HTC was found to be involved in the same issue as HTC One S was found to have a different

processor from the advertisement. The Taiwanese company had suffered reputation damage due to this issue.

I guess shortages of the other SoC lead to this decision to launch the phone with a comparable CPU so people would not be disappointed further with delays for the WCDMA product.

sta-s2z it's not a comparable, its absolutelly equal except LTE support  02:59, Jan-04-2014

It's a foul not matter how they explain it. Customers were promised one thing and they are given another. I believe in all that, they key word is "Quietly"! They should have announced that earlier.
