    It looks like Xiaomi really wants to do battle with Samsung. Earlier today Samsung all but screamed out that they will be announcing the Note 5 on August 13th. They sent out emails encouraging the media to "Note the date". Normally those emails would say "save the date", but since they will be announcing the Note 5 they decided to do a little word play.

    Xiamoi also sent out notice about an event they will be holding on August 13th. We will see the release of MIUI 7 on that day. We should also see this rom ported over to many other no Xiaomi devices pretty soon. The big news here is that the Mi 5 might also be released on the same day. In the invite we see pictures of boxes. Surely they would not store the new MIUI 7 in little boxes. Hopefully we will see the device next week.

    I so wish that America was in the game like the Asian companies are. I so wanted Motorola to dominate this industry, but now that they are a Chinese company I don't know who to root for.

    Building quality mini computers we call "phones" is the future. We could bring so many jobs to the U.S. just doing this one thing.

    I am not hating on Samsung, or Huawei or Xiaomi, I just wish my country would step up and get some of the pie.

    While I can agree with @akhenax, I am glad to see other companies working to compete with/fight the big dogs. We need a shake up in our choices for devices. That doesn't mean these "new to the US" phone makers are doing anything truly earth-shattering, but I've said a million times that competition breeds innovation.

    I just wish more of these manufacturers would take notice that vzw is the top carrier in our country and make devices compatible with their tech. I know one carrier in the world using that tech while everyone else is GSM based is a small market in the grand scheme, but there are plenty of us on that network who'd love to give a phone from a different OEM a try.

    Also, according to the source link, those boxes seem to have been the invitations...

    This is long over due. Miui 6 was bug ridden. I've always enjoyed Miui for their massive customization capabilities. If it is ported to the Note Edge I am switching to it.
