Dear MI FRIENDS & FAN'S.

Xiaomi is brand to trust.. this is most common questions for new user who's don't know about xiaomi smartphone so today i will discuss in this regard.So lets get start There are 7 things you need to know about Xiaomi before you start dropping nukes (basically negative reviews) on them.

1:- IT'S CHEAPER (good specifications).

Price is the most important factor, you would considering while buying a smartphone. Not everyone could afford an iPhone.
So, Xiaomi gives foremost importance to the pricing of its devices. Even its latest flagship smartphone Xiaomi Mi note 3 with premium features just costs under 1500 AED.Because its always better to sell a $100 product to 1000 people than a $1000 product to 100 people.But the cost never compromised the specifications of its smartphones. Xiaomi manages to sell the same smartphones with Great specifications at low prices, which other brands like Samsung selling at almost Double prices.

Why are xiaomi devices so cheap.

Then a question arises. How can Xiaomi sell its smartphones at very lower prices, while other company’s cannot. Because Xiaomi sells its product directly to the consumers through Online stores. No Offline stores. No extra costs.
Xiaomi doesn't spend money on Advertising. They rely on Social Media and a word of mouth from existing happy customers. Have you ever seen a TV ad of Xiaomi...?
This helps Xiaomi save a lot of money and helps sell smartphones at Unbelievably low prices.

2:- Premium hardware & build quality.

The low prices never defined the quality of Xiaomi phones. Even though they sell smartphones at low prices, they never compromised with the quality of hardware and Build material.

Processors.

When I see low-priced smartphones, I realize most of them use the Low-quality MediaTek processors. But unlike other, almost every Xiaomi smartphone runs on a Snapdragon processors, which are considered to be the best smartphone processors in global market right now.

Build Quality.

The material used for both inner and outer build of Xiaomi smartphones is also of High quality. Believe me, I dropped my Redmi Note 4 quite a number of times from a decent height on back & front But still it just had a few scratches and surprisingly no major damage.Can you believe that a smartphone that costs around just 700 AED is built with Metal? Xiaomi proved it possible.

3:- Great Camera.

As I already mentioned Xiaomi uses high-quality hardware, the camera module is no exception. Whether it is a most affordable smartphone or the flagship, Xiaomi smartphones always had a decent to an excellent camera.Even the 500 Aed priced Redmi note 3 which is regarded as the best camera phone in the price range can take amazing photos and record videos at 1080p resolution.The recently officially  launched Xiaomi Mi note 3 (1200 AED approx.) even has an dual lens 12+ 12Mp & 4 axis Optical Image Stabilizer which you usually find only in expensive smartphones like iPhone 6, Samsung S7 and so on, which cost you more than 1200 AED.

4:- The MIUI highly customizable android OS.

Xiaomi which was founded in 2010 by ex Kingsoft CEO Lei Jun was started as a software company, providing a custom version of Android, MIUI. They were not smartphone makers initially.MIUI gained huge popularity and been ported to a huge number of smartphones. This is for the reason, it has many features that the stock version of Android lacks.In 2011, they began to make their own hardware and launched its first smartphone with MIUI on it. MIUI had been the base product and the strength of Xiaomi.

Why MIUI is so special.

There are certain things and advantages of MIUI that made it most popular custom ROM with a huge fan base:

Highly customizable – Xiaomi’s MIUI is the most customizable ROM out there. You have hundreds of Themes to change the look of the whole UI.Alternatively, you can tweak each part of the software like the Lock screen, Notification shade, dual application, second space and reading mode display individually as per your taste.

It's Fast – No matter how rich and heavy it looks, you can move and navigate between apps faster.

Security – The default security app on Xiaomi is extremely powerful, powered by TENCENT, AVAST & AVL You can control/configure the permissions you give to individual apps.Besides that, you have an Anti-Malware, Clean up and other useful functions.

Regular Updates – MIUI has a huge group of developers and contributors from around the global world. So the software is regularly updated with new features, improvements, and Bug fixes.
The other thing is that Xiaomi provides MIUI updates even for its old devices. so that you don’t have to worry about your software being outdated.

The MIUI forum/community – Stuck with an error or a problem on your Mi device, MIUI forum is there for your rescue. The MIUI forum/community has a huge group of Developers, Official MIUI team and Experienced Mi fans.
Just post your problem on the forum and get your problem solved by MIUI enthusiasts in no time.

5:- BETTER RELIABILITY.

There is bad reputation for most china products because they use low-quality material. But not all of them. I have to say it again, Xiaomi uses great quality hardware & software I have been using one of my Xiaomi smartphone Redmi Note 4 for about a year and trust me I had never faced any issues To take another case, the Redmi Note 3 which my brother using for nearly 2 yrs was still working without any problem.To talk about after-sales service, I never walked into their service center because I never needed it. Xiaomi smartphones are often reliable. Unless you get a defective unit, you will less likely face any hardware issues.But, still if you ever need service, there are service centers, which are increasing in number (in UAE)If it a software issue, you can easily get a fix from the official MIUI forum. Xiaomi has a huge community of fans and developers, so you can usually get your problem fixed in no time.

6:- NO WARRANTY VOID ON ROOTING.

This is truly unique about Xiaomi. You won’t lose warranty even if root your device. Unlike other smartphones,Xiaomi phones have unlocked bootloader.
So if you accidentally brick your device you can go to Xiaomi service center to get it fixed and you will be still under warranty. But do remember to stay on MIUI and not any other custom ROM.
Xiaomi was the first company to offer warranty even after rooting. The strategy was later followed by an Indian smartphone maker called YU Televentures. The main aim behind this is to encourage developers.If you are using the old MIUI v5 or v6 (Developer ROM), you don’t have to manually root your device, it is by default has an option to get root permissions. It is later discontinued in MIUI 7 global ROM, but it is still there in Chinese ROM.

REMOVABLE/ NO BLOATWARE

Most smartphone makers ship their smartphones with some of their own or Third party apps preinstalled. Most of the times they cannot be uninstalled.It is quite annoying to have those extra apps which we don’t use. They take up extra memory, extra RAM. We can call it as Bloatware.Xiaomi phones come with only a few preinstalled apps like the Music app, which is very powerful and other basic apps like Browser, Notes which are quite useful.In one word we can say there is actually No bloatware on Xiaomi devices, even the few apps installed are basic essential apps.

Ok, but which xiaomi smartphone should i buy.

Well, that completely depends on your Choice and Budget.

Xiaomi has smartphones in 3 different Series. The flagship MI series, which is the high priced but still not so expensive. The Redmi series, which is budget friendly and most affordable smartphone series and the Redmi Note series, which are big screen smartphones priced in between the MI and Redmi series.If you are on tight budget, consider buying the Redmi note 4 which has some great specifications like 4GB RAM, 64GB Internal memory, and 13MP camera. And sold at a budget-friendly price around AED 700.If you like Phablets, MI MAX 2 is a great choice.And finally, if you have want a high speed smartphone, Xiaomi MI NOTE 3 is the one that suits you. The device is Launched in China with Chinese version and uae as of now with unlocked custom ROM global version.

THE CONCLUSION.

Xiaomi smartphones have great specifications and performance and that said they very much affordable. If Xiaomi is selling Powerful smartphones at half the price of others, then why go for other brands?

So, being a Mi fan myself I strongly advise and recommend you to get a Xiaomi smartphones next time you want to buy a smartphone.

HopE this post will give you some strong reasons to buy Xiaomi devices. Please do share any of your questions and opinions in comments below.
