The U.S. smartphone market has been fought and won by Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics C0. Even though, the U.S market is missing some of the advance and interesting smartphone devices in global market. As we know the U.S. was long ago beaten by China as the biggest smartphone market, and in other hand India is developing as the most exciting, with a half-dozen of platforms.
Some of the quickest growing smartphone makers, such as, Huawei, Xiaomi, Micromax and Karbonn never bother with the U.S. and just let alone to the Europe. As their smartphones get superior the U.S. market is missing some of the most interesting smartphones on the whole global market. Here’s a list of the best smartphones you can’t buy in the U.S:
Xiaomi Mi Note/Mi Note Pro:
Xiaomi’s latest smartphones are the most resented and famous nowadays. Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has launched its latest flagship model that is squarely aimed at high-end phablets like the Google Nexus 6, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Apple Iphone 6. The new device is only 6.95mm thin and, as it is typical for Xiaomi, the body and parts of the user interface come with an “Apple-inspired” design.
The camera module uses a 1/3.06 Sony BSI CMOS sensor, an optical image stabilization system and a two-tone LED flash. At the front a 4MP camera serves as a selfie-shooter and in video-chats. Images can be framed and viewed on a 5.7-inch 1080p IPS display that offers adaptive dynamic contrast and a blue light-reducing mode and comes with only 3mm thin bezels. Front and back of the device are covered with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3.
Xiaomi-customized version of Android 4.4.4 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 system chip and 3GB of RAM. Users can choose from versions with 16 or 64GB of internal storage. The Mi Note also offers dual-SIM slots (microSIM and nano-SIM), LTE-connectivity and a 3,000 mAh battery.
The Mi Note will available in China from January 27 and set you back RMB 2,299 ($370) for the 16GB model. The 64GB variant will be approximately $80 more expensive. Details are not yet given on international availability.
The YotaPhone brand of the smartphones included not just one screen but two, a main front screen, and a second “E-link” screen on its back. The E-link screen has a matte texture for easy viewing; the screen perfectly doubles as an e-reader. Users can also display notifications or social media applications on the back screen, in addition to using the screen to display images on the back screen as a personal design touch
The YotaPhone 2 is a sole and possibly ground-breaking device. While the phone itself seems very well-made, some of its hardware specifications are just regular. It’s the addition of the e-ink display that makes all the difference. Yota has clearly thought out the use cases and benefits of having this secondary display and has built software around it to maximize its potential.
Lenovo isn’t known as a great producer of smartphones, but the company is looking to change that perception. Despite its recent achievement of Motorola, Lenovo has uncovered two of its own smartphones today in a huge wave of devices the company unveiled at CES 2015. The P90, a workhorse with an enormous battery, and the Vibe X2 Pro, an update to the recently released Vibe X2, Both will be available this spring, but if you live in the US, don’t get too happy — Lenovo says they won’t be coming to any US carriers.
The P90 Is the first phone running on Intel’s 64-bit Atom 1.8GHz quad-core processor, and supports LTE-Advanced (FDD and TDD), which offers theoretical download speeds of 150Mbps. It’s also packing a huge 4000mAh battery that Lenovo tells us will last about two days. Lenovo is targeting the P90 at business customers, and that’s probably a wise move — unless you need the battery life, it’s probably wise to avoid one of the more generic-looking phones released in recent memory.

Micromax YU Yureka:
Micromax phones are not exactly popular for their build quality. The YU Yureka tries to be a bit different from the regular Micromax phone you may have seen. The 5.5-inch IPS panel display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, is complemented by what appears to be Micromax’s attempt at aping OnePlus One’s sandstone finish rear cover. Sadly, it’s a poor attempt at that. Though it’s a lot better than a standard glossy plastic back, it lacks the finesse of the Sandstone cover on the OnePlus. The removable rear cover tends to protrude out slightly along all the sides. This may seem annoying and will take some getting used to, if you are used to phones with smooth edges. On removing the cover, you see slots for the SIM cards and microSD card along with the removable battery.
Being the first phone from the Yu brand, the Yureka comes with impressive specs. It’s powered by the 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 system on chip which houses an octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and the Adreno 405 GPU clocked at 550MHz. It comes paired with 2GB of DDR3 RAM and offers 16GB of storage of which 12.8GB is available to the user. You can expand the storage via the microSD card slot by 32GB. Yureka is a dual SIM phone and it supports Cat4 4G LTE with TDD 2300MHz and FDD 1800MHz bands supported for India.
