    For sure i will take the Z3. Do you think I want to compromise my security with the Zenfone 5 or Xiaomi Mi3. I have heard that the Chinese phones have dormant malware installed on the phones.

      You are right I have just read what you said and it is true, a lot of chinese’ phones come with malware preinstalled and it cannot be deleted since it is embedded with the software itself, they can steal all your personal information including credit cards, I choose security: I take the Z3.
      Android is just full of viruses and malware, too bad many people don’t care about this big problem.
