So dissapointing to limit the LTE bands only to China and other Xiaomi's primary market. Why not making it Global LTE??
And no HIFI DAC?? What the hell they were thinking???
I hope the Pro version will change all that... or at least the LTE support for other countries.

Guys I need to ask one thing. If it's too simple, sorry for that but I have never had any Xiaomi device in my hand. If I will order phone from Ibuygou I will only need to instal play store on it to be ready to go as an fully operative android device ?  I found 2 ways of instaling play store and both of them are very easy, is that all I need to do for phone to operate properly ?
