Wall Street Journal's Monday front page story: Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun interviewed by Eva Dou, including one of his best quotes ever:

“Even a pig can fly if it stands at the center of a whirlwind” — Lei Jun, Xiaomi CEO

http://www.wsj.com/articles/xiaomi-chinas-new-phone-giant-takes-aim-at-world-1433731461
Lei Jun’s fast-growing startup, Xiaomi, used social networking to take on Apple and Samsung smartphones in China, but can he repeat overseas?

Bad service and cheap quality products being sold in India for XIAOMI. for last 20 days have been facing problems with my phone, which is barely 5 months old. Have already send it for service, but to no avail. Still no results. THEY DONT REPLY TO EMAILS. CUSTOMER CARE NO IS NEVER REACHABLE. i GUESS THEY ARE JUST WAITING FOR THE WARRANTY PERIOD TO GET OVER AND SHIRK AWAY FROM RESPONSIBILITY. 

TALK ABOUT BECOMING A QUALITY COMPANY AND BEATING APPLE. YOU CANT EVEN BEAT NOKIA IN TERMS OF QUALITY AND CUSTOMER SATISFACTION.

Mi 4i reviews are here!

Here's one of the first Mi 4i reviews by the one and only +Sahil Mohan Gupta (Dr Bones!). And here are some of my favorite quotes from his review: :)

"The attention to detail is unlike no other phone in the price range."

"wafer thin at 7.8mm and weights just 130 grams, (...) same weight as Samsung’s new Galaxy S6."

"The display on the Mi 4i, to the naked eye, is actually better than the Mi 4, and yes even the iPhone 6."

+Sanchit Mittal Dont worry. Its not the end of technology, you can sure go for a better one after 8 months or so. The technology is growing exponentially, so there is no point of getting dissapointed, atleast think that u r saving 2k still and u are getting a better display( Sunlight display and also 4G) and also Lollipop

Today is a glorious day — Xiaomi is opening our first international Mi Home, in Hong Kong! And it looks stunning :)

Mi Home HK is 270 square meters, with a spacious open-floor layout and a cozy design with couches, colorful pillows, and solid wood furniture.

Mi Home is many things in one place: a full-service repair center, an experience center for new Mi products, and Mi shop for fans to buy Mi accessories (and soon also phones!). Most importantly, Mi Home is a community hub for Mi fans to hang out, watch movies, and share stories.

Come check it out if you're in Hong Kong! Hollywood Plaza 20/F, 610 Nathan Road, Mongkok

I need these features in my Mi4i (important don't ignore):

1.   lockscreen musicplayer access
2.   better notification dropdown panel like stock android
3.   more ram availability
4.   app drawer and live wallpapers from miui
5.   better miui musicplayer like that was in miui5 and give us smart-playllist and playlists depending upon mood of user
6.   videoplayer app through which we can see youtube
7.   faceunlock
8.   better smart gestures
9.   better camera app that takes selfies on smiling etc...
10. increased cloud storage
11. better gallery interface
12. one best miui keyboard better than google's
13. an assistant like cortana built by miui, of course in english
14. clock app is good but needs improvements in terms of typing the actual alarm time
15. mi store in english
16. a faster boot time less than 10seconds (my PC boots windows 10 in just 9 seconds)
17. boot animation in Mi4i is not working properly
18. app hiding feature in launcher
19. change of launcher background in regular intervals
20. user picture in toogles panel.
21. fast interface and app switching
22. choosing which features to update be it in UI updates or app updates
23. Iris scanner passcode in frontcam
24. UI autofill about user details
25. Increase mi messenger capabilities
26. Improve auto merging of contacts
27. Split screen or be better if I call it windows interface
28. Better and smooth animation. Oh! no no the animations must be amazing like Ironman's UI
29. Jarvis app is already in iOS Bring it to your mi store, of course in English
30. System restore point file on computer using pc suit
31. Still more better system recovery interface
32. Use the proximity sensor for glance screen Just like Motorola's
33. Better lockscreen interface and notifications
34. When an email or a message is received, I should be able to reply to that there itself by dragging it down and text, without opening the app for that(like in windows phones)
35. Need more better and number of inbuilt tones




Do these your UI will be THE BEST on this planet

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
