|cafebrad||unless you really love Samsungs touchwiz there is little reason to go for tizen. one of the great aspects of android is its themes/launchers/fonts/widgets. if tizen looks good for u then there will likely be an option to mimic it on any phone and keep your access to the google ecosystem. for instance an Oppo 7 with a new launcher. beautiful high end hardware thats different than the norm ( and relatively cheaper) ...... its all up to you|

Another Chinese "underdog" setting its eyes on Xiaomi
HTC One level specs on a smartphone under $300.
With an (almost) stock Android OS. Sounds interesting...

The first smartphone to use the full octa-core Mediatek CPU is Xiaomi's Redmi Note
The AnTuTu benchmark puts it in the Galaxy S4 ballpark...
And there are reasons to suspect LG G3 will use the same
That in turn could mean the next Nexus might use one as well...

Xiaomi aggressively on schedule
If they are half as successful as they plan to be, they must get ready to face Apple legal...
