For $330 for 32gb/3Gb model it seems better value than the meizu note 2. For the money the Octa-core, 2000 MHz, ARM Cortex-A53, 64-bit, 3GB ram and GR 6200 (mid range) seem very good value for money.

Yep - just check towards the end of the large Chinese Androids thread that you've also posted on, and you'll see someone there's bought a Note 3. Sure he'll be able to provide you some feedback.

Just be mindful that the updating process for these Notes can be frustrating - I still haven't got my wife's Note 2 updated beyond the version I was sent a link to by the seller. Some have managed to do it without too much hassle, whereas for others it can be a POS. Still, my wife's loving her phone and, for well under $300, it's certainly good value. (Edit I see it's more if you get a larger capacity phone, but given it's takes SD cards, I'd probably not worry about the capacity but the extra RAM may be nice.)

I don't have a Kiaomi note 3, but I do have a china phone, the IRON Pro. It worked well for me, until it got stolen.
