Recently in our country (Russia), many of those, who have ordered MiOne Plus - received phones on the CPU MTK. Which looks like an 100% original! but they have 800x480, and no lock sim-card. They don't have fastboot menu, but have a factory mode.
They all come with cracked installed AnTuTu which shows result like an originall M1Plus....
Orders are made primarily on taobao and **********.
never heard for taobao but alienexpress is like asian ebay with a lot of fake stuff and real stuff.
If you want non fake stuff you need to find websites that a lot of people have bought from and think is safe.
Alienexpress is not a webstore that sell there own stuff its just a lot of people like ebay so then you would need to find a seller with a good reputation.
When the M1 and M1S comes out they will jump on it and fake it as fast as they can since the market is so hot when it arrives. So it dont shock me that its faked fast. They have probably already started with faking the M2 or are working on it.
Hope you didnt have to pay much for the phone since its fake :/
oh damn that makes me mad not only did they get scammed with fake stuff but they also paid full price for fake stuff
Dont think they will see the money or the phone then probably if the guy selling is that much of a asshole.
That sucks so bad
Yeah but people buy fake **** all the time doesnt matter what it is. Phones, clothes, electronics, cigarets probably if it can be made and people want it and there is money to be made they fake it. The only thing i havent seen fake/pirated yet is milk
So it really don't have nothing to do with them not selling international it has to do with where you buy it.
Even in real proper stores you can probably end up with buying some high end pirated stuff, it sucks but its true.
Miui phones don't have root permissions anymore, if you are on a stable build (mine is ICS 20) it tells you that you have to switch to the developer edition in order to get root permissions. In the past it was as simple as going to Tools->Permission Manager, not anymore it was removed since the say it can lead to instability.
