The next chart shows how Xiaomi is able to capitalize the going trends and hence, put together a package of hardware + software that encompasses the best of both world : Android OS coupled with iOS user experience.

The trend of Android taking the major portion of smartphone OS market in the world is undeniable. So, instead of basing on one single platform to suceed, Xiaomi’s strategy was to combine both the strength of Android OS and iOS user inteface. And this works well apparently.

Also, Xiaomi is coming on strong into the turf of Tablets too.

Xiaomi’s MIUI provides tons of user modifications without to root devices downloaded either with MIUI ROM or MIUI Express. It creates strong user community and loyalty with constant updates based on users feedback.

User experience of MIUI proves to be excellent. Millions of users out there support the MIUI system.

Plenty of themes, wallpapers, lockscreens, and launcher settings by MIUI:

iPhone 6 Self~destruction Incident Happened Again! October 30, 2014

The above incident happened in China.
Apparently it was reported that a guy who owns an iPhone 6 for just 11 days  encountered a freaking case ~ his iPhone 6 suddenly emitted high degree of heat in his hand.  He threw the iPhone on the floor and smoke came out from the device!
The newly bought iPhone apparently was burning by itself, due to overheating.

It was unclear as to why and how his original iPhone could end up in smoke…

The newly launched iPhone 6 has lots of supporters but it is also blamed for bad quality of build and “smoking gun” syndrome.

The question is, why such cases never happened to Xiaomi and some popular Chinese brand names?

Is there a conspiracy going on or what?

What do you think?

The above informations are extracted from the Web.

Unknowingly, smartphone manufacturers in China are quietly setting new trends in their product strategies.
Started by Xiaomi and now this trend of offering much affordable mid range smartphones with continuous improvements in technology is being adopted by more Chinese firms.
Going forward this trend will benefit most of the world’s consumers if not all.

Asus is another one that’s adopting such a good trend, albeit it is from Taiwan.
Xiaomi is growing larger, by adopting a consumer~friendly strategy.

I am still waiting for the best value “Android iPhone 6 and iPhone 7” from China or Taiwan. I am confident that it will happen very soon.

And, this is inevitable: for those who rip off from consumers.

Huawei Honor 4X Is A Much Welcomed Smartphone October 29, 2014

HUAWEI Honor 4X Official Launch

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has launched its best mid range device to compete with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note, HTC Desire 816, Asus Zenfone 6 etc. And it is called the Honor 4X!

The most shining armour of Honor 4X is its 64~bit Snapdragon processor with 4G support.

Our initial assessment is as follows,

~ this new 64~bit quad~core processor at mid range pricing is going to be the trend setter. Other manufacturers have to keep up with such aggressive push into China, India, Indonesia and eastern European markets. Otherwise they will lose the game.

~ this is definitely a great development trend for all consumers. As tech users, we now don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for newer and better technologies. Credit must be given to Xiaomi really. They are the one who set such a trend three years ago ~ making great value products at a great (low) pricing for the good of consumers out there. The rest of competitors have to listen.

~ with improving technology and greater optimization of software efforts, 90% of consumers out there don’t really need a processor running at above 2GHz inside their smartphone. This is a fact. So, this Huawei Honor 4X will prove a solid case for common users that we all could enjoy great user experience at a much lower cost yet, with improved technology, including 64~bit processor, 13MP camera, good enough HD screen, large screen asset, great selfie, long lasting battery, update to Lollipop… oh yeah, 4G LTE.

Just wait for another Chinese firm soon they will launch their good quality “iPhone 6” for a third of Apple’s pricing! Guess? Heard of this name Lenovo?
Also, heard about the Oppo R5? More to come.

Come on, Chinese smartphone industry, you are great! Can’t imaging this world moving ahead without China and USA.

Lenovo 联想 SISLEY Smartphone ~ Worth Buying This iPhone 6 Lookalike? October 23, 2014

There are numerous information or leaks appearing on the Web. Below is just one of the leaked information published,

And some of the leaked photos on the web,

So, what’s our opinion on this forthcoming device ‘Lenovo Sisley’?

~ if the leaked specifications are correct, this is a mid range device that should be positioned in the correct price range too, regardless of whether it copies the design of iPhone 6. If it priced too steep, then Lenovo has gone down the wrong path.

~ rumors say that it could carry a MediaTek chipset clocked at 1.2GHz. We think that it could also go for the Snapdragon 400 series if it includes 4G LTE connectivity.

~ 16GB internal storage is a good choice if it is true. This is much better than many branded mid range phones that only offer users with 8GB memory. This alone makes the phone more attractive than other mid range devices.

~ a HD screen 720p resolution is good enough for mid range usage, because it will not overly drain on battery juices and, also it will not overly demand on its GPU.

~ we think that Lenovo has adopted a clever marketing strategy, so long as the Sisley’s workmanship is of solid quality. This is one single factor that make or break the new initiative! As for Android OS, it is already a proven system software, so there’s not much of an issue here.

~ now, there seems to be an issue here. It is rumored that this device only carry 1GB of ram. So, this is not meant for heavy users/gamers. However, it is still adequate for most mid range users out there. Is this a deal breaker? Yes and No.
Hopefully Lenovo gives us a surprise by slot in a 2GB ram.

~ it is rumored that it will come with Android 4.4.4 OS. If it is true then this is a good news for the start, as a mid range device. If Lenovo could promise users the Lollipop 5.0 update in early 2015 in advance then we don’t see why this thing can’t sell.

So, it’s really up to Lenovo to prove to the smartphone community including millions of users, that they CAN produce better concept and execution in an iPhone 6 body than Apple!

Recently one of the most famous Rolex was put up for sales…

Judging by its historical values, it should be one of precious gems in the watch collectors world.

Maybe the one given by Rolex to Winston Churchill remains at the top of the table, but this one shouldn’t be far from it.

Now those of you having Xperia Z series, M2, C3, T2 Ultra etc. can proceed to download the lastest Xperia Z3 Launcher for your device.

Just go to the web and search for Z3 apks download (direct to your device) and install the new launcher and or other features such as AR Fun camera software. For example:

image

First impression of the new Xperia Z3 launcher is as follows,

~ it’s smooth in opening and closing apps.
~ it can pair up with other lockscreen apps. In which i tried out on Xiaomi lockscreen.
~ features such as Mini Apps on homepage opening as multi~windows.
~ most obvious change is the larger icon images same as Google Now icons in size.
~ the launcher should work well with Android v.4.1 onwards.

Mini Apps :

AR Fun camera app:

The AR Fun is an interesting add~on for Sony camera …

Overall impression is that Sony has moved in the right direction in enhancing the launcher pack to present a better homescreen UI. It definitely looks much more a new face of Android like the Google Now launcher. The folders are big and nice too.

The UI maintains fluidity in style. Ran the Quadrant benchmark and has a good score on my Xperia M2.
