Are there any sample images of its camera, is good as iPhones 5S camera?
Which CPU has the best power consumption Snapdragon or Tegra4?
Where can I buy this phone in best price possible?
Is build quality of this phone good?
What MIUI does more , or why is better than Androids default launcher?
Will this Phone get Google KitKat Android, and later Android 5?
If a part of the phone breaks , where can I buy only the part?

Sorry for these all questions.

Which CPU has the best power consumption Snapdragon or Tegra4?
That's to decide when both devices are released, but if you live outside China you need the snapdragon version.
The Tegra version only supports TD bands (so no 3G networks)

Where can I buy this phone in best price possible?
Directly from Xiaomi if you live in China, otherwise it's mostly the same.
Try *******, they sell decent qenuine devices

Is build quality of this phone good?
Very good, it has alluminum frame

What MIUI does more , or why is better than Androids default launcher?
It's a complete replacement of android, not just a launcher.
For all the details, http://en.miui.com

Will this Phone get Google KitKat Android, and later Android 5?
Most likely

If a part of the phone breaks , where can I buy only the part?
Hard to tell right now, but probably http://www.**********.com/

Which CPU has the best power consumption Snapdragon or Tegra4?
I would prefer the Snapdragon S800 power consumption wise.

Tegra 4 has been known for being a beast in this department explaining why there are close to 0 devices until now packing such a SoC. Cortex A15 is indeed powerful but is power hungry and seems to be overheating a bit. This is also why ARM came up with big.LITTLE build idead.

That being said, the S800 is a top chip as well, but performance wise, it is on par with the Tegra 4 and seems even to surpass it in the graphic field while keeping power consumpter on the same levels as the Snapdragon S600.

Anyway, I'm just glad we're getting the S800 based Mi3, we just have to wait (a lot ?).

[MI3 / S800]I bet we're not gonna have our hands on this phone until January.
Well, as I visited China recently, I didn't want to wait. AFAIK, LTE will not be available for the MI3 anyways, and in my experience, 3G in my region was only rarely a real benefit -- my old phone had to switch back to EDGE very often. Given the fact, that published benchmarks comparing S800/Tegra4 so far tend to see the Tegra4 a little ahead, this COULD be a fair price to pay, depending on the region you're living in and the way you use your phone. Of course, benchmarks comparing both versions of MI3 will be interesting :)
