Gizmodo Mi Note review

Gizmodo just published a really cool review of Mi Note that is worth a read! I especially like this review because it touches on quite a few of the awesome MIUI 6 features available across our entire device range :) cc: +Faye Xu +Donovan Sung 

"I suppose I've only used the Mi Note as my primary phone for a few days now, but the software keeps surprising me with how simple, intuitive, and (dare I say) beautiful it can be. It doesn't feel bloated or weighed down like * or * or the other skins that always drive me to always pick stock or near-stock Android phones instead."

You've probably never heard of the Xiaomi Mi Note. You can't buy one in the US. You should read this story anyhow. It's about a smartphone--a really good smartphone--but it's also about the future of personal electronics. You care about the future, no?

When is it likely to come to India?
Next change from MI3 can be this one or may be something even better:)

Jaymus, We Love You :)

Just a quick post to thank our phenomenal 6-year-old Mi fan and Mi friend — Jaymus — from Singapore!

Jaymus was our youngest Mi fan at the Mi Pop Singapore event last weekend. Jaymus is so adorable that he made a custom painting just for us, featuring himself and tons of Mi Bunnies 

To thank him for his kindness and awesomeness, we also made a custom Mi Bunny t-shirt for Jaymus!

Resuming sales in India!

Dear Mi fans,
 
Last week, we were forced to suspend sales in India due to an order passed by the Delhi High Court. Thanks for the overwhelming support so many of you have shown to Mi India in response to that!
 
We are happy to announce that the Delhi High Court today issued a ruling in our favor, allowing us to resume sales in India subject to certain terms.
 
The good news is that Redmi 1S is coming back next week and we’ll be having our next sale on Tuesday, December 23. Registration will open shortly — keep an eye on the Mi India FB page for details!

We will also be resuming sales of Redmi Note shortly, with the 4G model this time. More details on that very soon, stay tuned!

A Letter to Indian Mi Fans

Dear Mi fans,

We have been committed to continue our sales of Redmi Note and Redmi 1S devices in India. In the last 2 days alone, we received about 150,000 registrations for Redmi Note on Flipkart and the momentum has been terrific.

However, we have been forced to suspend sales in India until further notice due to an order passed by the Delhi High Court. As a law abiding company, we are investigating the matter carefully and assessing our legal options.

Our sincere apologies to all Indian Mi fans! Please rest assured that we're doing all we can to revert the situation. We have greatly enjoyed our journey with you in India over the last 5 months and we firmly intend to continue it! 

Stay tuned for more information.

Hugo
(on behalf of the Mi India team)

Hi

I have given my MI3 on Noida service center on 10 Jan 2015 for on/off issue.

Ealier I have discussed with service center and they told me that the motherboard will be replaced in MI3 and I will get within 15 days mostly. Now after 1 month still
I don't get my MI3.

Now when I call to service center then they are saying that they have not got motherboard from company so they don't know how much time it will take.

Service Center: Satyam Communication
Work order no: OIA/XM/14/00536
Work order date: 10 Jan 2015
IMEI No: 865072027670481
Problem: Power On/Off issue

My Email id: shukant.k@gmail.com
Contact No: 9560955252


I am very disappointment with Xiaomi services.

----------------------------
I have called two three times to service center as well customer care.
When can I get MI3?
Now it is more than 1 month and still I don't have my MI3 phone.

Now I am feeling I made wrong decision to buy Xiaomi product. I am totally disturbed. Could Xiaomi/Hugo compensate this disturbance?

Xiaomi is selling phones on every week in India but not able to deliver parts in India. How is it possible?

A Breath of Fresh Air

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk. Every year, around 7 million people die as a result of air pollution exposure – 1 in 8 of total global deaths (World Health Organization, March 2014).

Our mantra at Xiaomi is “Innovation for Everyone” and we mean that quite literally. Today we’re introducing a new product as part of the Mi Smart Home family, one that truly focuses on solving a real-world problem — a high-performance smart air purifier called… Mi Air Purifier :)

Absolutely fascinating property, beautiful grounds and spacious rooms. Service quality, however, is well below the 4-star level, mostly due to poorly trained staff at all levels below the managers. This appears to have been a serious regression from previous years based on what I had heard from others who had visited this property years ago. Makes it hard to justify the high rates.

Pros: - Killer location on Copacabana beach, a few minutes walk from Ipanema beach - Excellent breakfast banquet Cons: - Smoky rooms (non-smoking rules not enforced, thick carpet that isn't properly cleaned) - Inattentive service staff - Very expensive for value provided
