Xiaomi is going all out, and all their hard work seems to be paying off – they have actually beat Apple. The Chinese manufacturer also has news on a new device, which just became available for purchase. If you prefer a cute smartphone, though, you might want to see what HTC has in hand!
Impressed by the prices and quality devices Xiaomi has been putting out lately? You will be even more impressed by the Chinese manufacturer’s latest accomplishment: they have beaten Apple! Xiaomi overpowered the US giant in the Chinese market for the very first time.
Yes, this is only in the Chinese market, but we must remember we are talking about Apple, here. This is no small feat, and with 11% market share in the country, the “small” manufacturer is now going straight for Samsung.
Opinion: We have been saying it: don’t ever underestimate the Chinese manufacturers. This is great news for Xiaomi, and I hope their success only keeps growing. They make awesome devices for prices that are unheard of pretty much anywhere else in the world.
Those in the market for an affordable smartphone can take a look at the brand new Xiaomi Redmi 1S, which just went on sale for $169.99. But what can such little money get you? Surprisingly, quite a bit!
The Xiaomi Redmi 1S is an improved version of the Redmi (or Hongmi). It sports better specs in an identical body, compared to its predecessor. Inside you will find a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 4.7-inch 720p display and a 2000 mAh battery.
You can buy it from SPE Mall for just $169.99. The retailer also sells them in bulk with a discount, for those who are interested.
Opinion: This device will be great for those looking for a capable, yet very affordable smartphone. This bad boy is as good as (if not better than) the Moto G, and it costs a bit less.
Now, if you are looking for an HTC One M8 but need something a bit more colorful to keep you happe, this is your day. The latest leak shows the device could be coming in a pink version!
This leak comes from @evleaks, who has long proven its worth with dozens of leaks that have come to fruition. We must say odds of this being true are very high. No more details were given, but let’s wait a bit and see what else we can find out!
Opinion: I am a conservative person when it comes to smartphone colors. I tend to pick the most “normal” smartphones colors around, which limits me to white, black and silver. I must say I don’t completely dislike this HTC One M8, though….
