Crowd-sourced goodness

MIUI — Xiaomi's Android-based OS — is built from the ground up with a lot of help from our fan community. 

Here’s an awesome example: the Malaysia MIUI build was fully localized by a group of volunteers working on their spare time. Led by Imran Zakaria (big thanks to Mark Hedley for finding him!), the group went through many sleepless nights translating more than 50,000 strings over 2 months, racing against the clock before Xiaomi reached Malaysian shores. 

We’re so thankful to them that we decided to burn their names permanently onto the MIUI ROM that ships on all devices in Malaysia — in Settings > About Phone (see image below).

Today we're celebrating the closing of an exciting half-year for Xiaomi. 

In H1 2014, we shipped about 26 Million phones globally (3.7x H1 2013), with revenues of about USD 5.3 billion (2.5x H1 2013).  

A huge thank-you to our loyal Mi Fans and partners — we couldn't have done this without you!

Ang ganda ng Pilipinas!

To celebrate our first Mi launch in the Philippines tomorrow, we've created a beautiful customized theme especially for our Pinoy fans, complete with even a Jeepney clock widget :)  Download it from the MIUI Themes Store and tell us what you think?

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
