    So what’s all the whining about? The Mi-3 was CLEARLY marketed as a WCDMA phone, not an LTE phone. The processors are IDENTICAL, only the network support is different. So they’re not going to use the LTE chip? So what? It’s NOT supposed to support LTE anyway!

      Why not? If it would support LTE I would buy it already. Now it is not different to any 2.0GHz MTK6592. Just less performance that you won’t probably notice anyway.
