Hello Mi Fans!
Vadodara Mi Fans hosted a fans meet on 29th Jan at Sayaji Baug. This was the first fan meet after Mi Community made its debut in India. The day was Sunday and most of the fans agreed to meet up. The location was easily accessible and we all gathered till 4.30 PM.
Introduction and the initial warm up
We had new faces in this meet and they seemed to be quite excited about the fan meet and how it goes. We started with introduction of each of us and then moved on to chatting and we were amazed to learn how those attendees turned up into Mi Fans.
Furqaan on Mi Live!
Furqaan started a Mi Live session with Mi fans and interviewed them. They discussed about their favorite Mi products, their experience with Mi so far, their expectations and even experiences with Mi products. The list is quite long, ha-ha!
RN4's superb display
The RN4 hands on was planned at a later time but it was as soon as they fans arrived at the meeting place, the first question they had put in front of us was ‘Where is the new king of Power?’
RN4 aspirants exploring the device
Every fan was just admiring the beauty of the device and kept on exploring it. Sometimes we had to interrupt them and ask them to pass on the device to others! RN4 was the hero of this meet. I had to ask many a times where my explorer device was.

After an extensive hands-on, we finally took a break and started with refreshment. As it was quite warm in afternoon, our perfect companion was fruit juice.
Guava juice is always refreshing
The interaction still goes on while sipping mango juice (I drank 3, LOL)
Some highlights of Q and A with fans:
Q. How do you refer Mi products to others?
A. Actually when it comes to buying a device with all the features one needs, with a budget segment only Mi devices sport the most desirable specs and that too at a competitive price. I always tell my friends whatever research you want to do please go ahead but finally only Mi will seem promising.
- Viken Fataniya
Q. How many Mi device users have you observed growing with you?
A. First I purchased Mi 4i and then after loving it I started recommending everyone. I changed the devices which my parents were using to Mi and then even went on campaigning amongst my friends and relatives. I never realized that I turned up into a hardcore Mi fan.
- Prerit Christain
Q. How were you introduced to Mi?
A. I went for trekking to Manali and I found that all when we were camping at a place at night and all were busy charging their devices; I observed only one brand ‘Mi’. I was surprised to know that this company really makes awesome devices and they should be definitely tried before going for other brands.
- Prinkit Patel
Q. What is the downside regarding Mi?
A. The flash sales. Purchasing during office hours is really tricky. Fortunately I booked Redmi 3S Prime after 5 weekly attempts.
- RJ Yogesh Jangid
Q. What are your impressions about Mi Community?
A. Mi Community is a great hangout place to know everything about Mi products. What’s more interesting is that fans help the fellow fans and you get answers for your queries within hours. This arrangement is very nice. Even we can download ROM for our devices and flash Mi devices at home thereby saving time and energy in visiting service centers.

A question from Mi Fans to explorers
Q. When is the 64 GB variant for RN4 going on sale?
A. Please stay tuned for it. (Really!)
The fans demanded eco system products to be released in India just like China and many more cool experiences were shared.
As we came nearer to the end of this meet we gave 15 mins to each of the attendees to take some snaps and share the best ones with us. Please visit a photowalk thread of this meet (Link given below). 21 Mi fans had a very good time and Mi was in the air. We all promised to meet again with a new agenda and everyone left for their home around the dusk.
A special thanks to all MI fans for attending this meet. Last but not the least, Furqaan bro- I would not be able to make this meet a success without you.
