The emax is still one of the best phones in the mid-high category, so I wouldn't do that. What you ...

We also lose the new ROMs, we can not have the MIUI V7, nor LewaOS 6 with 4,4,4 kernel on MT6752

Definitely not a lot, just a few.
The K3 Note was already available when I bought my eMax, so I could compare the two phones. The K3 Note has lower screen brightness while I can see the screen of the eMax well even under the brightest sunlight. The eMax a bit higher performance with lollipop (I tested with TCL M2M firmware) and just a bit lower performance with KitKat than the K3 Note and despite the K3 Note, without lags and delays. The battery life of eMax is significantly better. I also didn't want to buy a white or yellow color and plastic looking phone.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is a newer one but (except its price) that's a disappointment for me. The Helios X10 doesn't offer really higher performance, the camera is not better than the one in the eMax, the battery life is much worse and you can't extend the memory with SD card. This latter option is a must-have for me. I use my eMax with a 64GB Samsung Evo so I have an all in all 80GB fast storage. So, the Redmi Note 2 is not an option.

Of course, if you miss them (not me), that's a loss for you. For me (for example) the two-layer (apps screen + customizable home screen) UI is an unconditional requirement, so if I bought a K3 Note or a Redmi Note 2, I'd replace the original launcher by another one.

In terms of selecting device, it's worth remembering that when emax launched it was a fair bit cheaper than k3 note , and was meant to have band 20 , which k3 definitely didn't support .

OK this is definately the last Chinese phone  get on presell.  I will in future wait till supplies are available and there is sufficient user feedback to make an educated decision rather than begin persuaded by advertising bullshit.  And probably will not be an Umi anyway. OK my emax is still a good phone but just too many issues to trust them again.

I have to say , I am very disappointed that despite all these people saying they are going to sell their emax, I haven't seen any on ebay (UK)  Thought I was going to get a bargain!
