It depends which Phantom you're comparing with, the camera and gimbal specs are very good, probably closest to a high end Phantom 3 or a Phantom 4 Standard.

The Xiaomi does lack a few Features like follow/track mode, but for the cost, there's nothing close.

The Phantom 3SE is €439 if you pay in USD, and if you get the 5% off first purchase, it is €416.
Customs are included in the price.

Some comparisons here

Unfortunately there are not really a whole lot more comparisons, but they will start appearing. Most comparisons are for the Phantom 3 Standard vs the Xiaomi 4K.

Yeah, these reviews are good, but old, they hadn't even flown the drones in the first two reviews. There have been several firmware updates through the mi drone app. Now the max altitude and range are the same as the P3SE. They also talked about the issues with the old 1080p version and these are solved with the 4K.

Both are cool.

Ah, I think that means it will either come the WiFi dongle or the blade guards. Mine came with the WiFi dongle to connect the transmitter wirelessly to the phone.

I don't think I'd use either to be honest with you as the usb connection from the transmitter to the phone also charges the phone and the blade guards can interfere with recording.
