Xiaomi is the new Apple! Apple is Becoming The New Boring Microsoft!

Xiaomi is the new Apple! Last month they sold over 10 million smartphones. Apple sold over 70 million phones last quarter but Apple is mostly living on past success momentum.

Apple can make more money but in terms of innovation not much fun has really been happening the last couple of years. With their latest iPhone X they even removed the fingerprint sensor!

Samsung is also becoming sloppy with glitchy phones with faulty batteries/software and hardware issues like broken glass. I think both Apple and Samsung needs more competition! They are becoming lazy at the top. They can afford to make mistakes because who can challenge them?

Right now I personally think Huawei and Xiaomi is doing the best. Both are from China! So it looks like chinese phone companies will dominate more and more. Especially when they expand in other areas like India. Let’s take a quick look at how Xiaomi currently is dominating with amazing smartphones.

First they have their Xiaomi Mi 6 that truly looks better than iPhone 8. iPhone 8 still comes with same boring design we have seen for years, iPhone 6 design still! Apple still has 2014 design that is too slow. And they only released their so called premium iPhone X for 1000 euros when you can buy a DOOGEE Mix or Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 for way less money! It’s time to admit it that Apple is becoming the next Microsoft.

Xiaomi also release many more products each year that fits more consumers. Like their brand new massive Xiaomi Mi Max 2 which comes for around 200 euro with massive 6.4” display and an amazing design.

Xiaomi also released the bezel-less Xiaomi Mi Mix which truly is a phone that stands out! And it only cost around 500 euro with premium world class design! And you need 1000 euro for iPhone X! It’s insanity! Also insanity with Galaxy Note 8 1000 euro price. This makes it so many people can’t even buy them!

And then we have a bunch of other premium devices Xiaomi is releasing like Xiaomi Mi Note 2 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X. I think Apple is making a mistake with producing less phones. Because I think that it makes them have less creative ideas. I think that they should just focus on creating quality phones in all segments. Even in the low-end area.

Apple can live a little bit longer on past success but then what are they going to do? It’s especially the boring closed UI which is getting very boring and outdated. The good thing with Android on Xiaomi phones is how they can both be on a free platform and get Xiaomi’s own custom UI on top! Apple can do better than just chasing profit.

LEAGOO S8 Is a Galaxy S8 Copycat Smartphone For Low Price!

LEAGOO S8 is a Galaxy S8 copycat but with a twist! I have talked about LEAGOO in the past about their T5 5.5” dual rear camera phone. It didn’t have something super special about it but it was okay. This phone on the other hand makes me more interested! Because it comes with S8 design but with a different rear camera layout.

Specs: 5.7” SHARP 1440×720 HD 500ppi display, Quad camera, 3GB of RAM, 32GB Internal storage, MT6750V Octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 4G mobile, Edge-to-Edge bezel-less screen, 18:9 aspect ratio, 85% screen-to-body ratio, SONY 13MP + 2MP rear dual camera, OV 8MP + 2MP front dual camera, Quick Charge, 3050mAh battery and Fingerprint ID unlock!

The camera on LEAGOO S8 is wow! It reminds me about the Galaxy S2 days. But this camera design is even more slim and compact but still with a pleasing rectangular design to the eye. And how it’s Dual Camera on both back and front for the price is even more impressive!

The specs on front selfie camera is: 4P lens, f/2.0 and 1.12um*1.12um pixel size. The rear has: f/2.0 and 1.12um*1.12um. As I have understood it the lower f the better! You can also get the great bokeh effect which everyone loves.

You also have 4G so super connectivity speed with Dual 4G cards if you want. Up to 300Mbps download and VoLTE! Fingerprint ID is located on the back below the camera with Smart Touch technology, 360 degree readability and 0.1sec unlock!

The battery on LEAGOO S8 will last for: 8 hours of video playback, 20 hours of calling, 36 hours normal use, 10 days standby and 35% charging in 30 mins. It comes with LEAGOO OS 3.0 based on Android 7.0 Nougat.

I think most people will buy this phone for it’s price and beautiful design! It truly looks like a Galaxy S8 and if you use a case on the back then everyone will think you own the expensive S8 smartphone from Samsung.

Leeco Le Pro3 Elite Cheap Phone With Galaxy S7 Processor!

LeTV got a smartphone that is very popular. It’s called the Leeco Le Pro3 Elite. This is a company that not many people have heard about but they can produce and have done many low-end devices with great specs.

Main features: 5.5-inch Display, 4GB of RAM, 32GB Internal storage, Snapdragon 820 Quad-core processor, 4G, Beautiful design, Fingerprint sensor, 4070mAh battery, 2.5D arc glass screen, Dual speakers + CDLA, 16MP + 8MP camera, 4G+/VoLTE and 24W QC 3.0 double charge!

The cool part with this charger for Leeco Le Pro3 Elite is how it’s using double fast charge. And that you can plug in the cable from both directions! It’s also a very slim phone only 7.5mm thickness.

A big thing with this phone is how it’s running with snapdragon 820! Same processor Galaxy S7, LG V20, LG G5, HTC 10, OnePlus 3, Moto Z and ZTE Axon 7 have! So you can expect a lot of juice out of this smartphone! It’s clocked at 2.35GHz with amazing Adreno 530 graphics engine.

The camera is using IMX298 sensor, ODAF, 6P and f/2.0. Under the display you have three keys: Multi-tasking, home and back button. It comes in a full body metal with three colours silver, pink and gold.

The camera on the back side of Pro3 Elite doesn’t look as beautiful as the Xiaomi Mi 5X. But it feels just as slim! And the biggest selling point with this device I feel will be Snapdragon 820 for a low-price. 5.5” large display is pretty standard these days on high-end phones. But here you are getting it even on a low-end device!

I wish it did come available in a full black colour. Many people like that and it’s mainly people’s favourite. This phone will be perfect if you are a smartphone gamer but doesn’t wanna pay a fortune for just some Android gaming.

Ulefone MIX Bezel-less Smartphone!

Ulefone MIX is another bezel-less phone that goes up all the way to the top! Just as we have seen with other phones like DOOGEE MIX Lite and Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. This is the biggest trend 2017. Bezel-less smartphones and Dual Cameras!

Main specs: 5.5 inch all screen, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, MT6750T Octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 4G, 8-core CPU, Dual Cameras 13MP + 5MP, 3300mAh battery (More than Galaxy Note 8) and Nougat OS Android 7.0.

What they have done with Ulefone MIX  to create this Tri-bezel-less design is they have moved the cameras and light sensor to be below the display right side of home button. It comes with corning gorilla glass 3 screen protection, curved back cover and sleek corners.

There is also two versions available of this phone one is called sparkling bright blue and the other is elegant classical black. The both seem to come with a taste of gold colour around the camera and on the logo. You can also expand the memory inside the phone all the way up to 256GB with SD card.

The camera specs: SONY IMX258 sensor, DSLR-quality bokeh effect, f/2.2 aperture and Dual LED flash. They are placed like a traffic light just as on Huawei Mate 10 and iPhone X have. At the front you get a 13MP selfie camera with beauty mode and f/2.2 aperture.

The fingerprint sensor is super fast in unlock speed and you can use 5 fingerprints + 360 degree rotation. The sensor is located in the home button and not at the back side. They haven’t decided to completely remove the home button on this phone as we have seen with Galaxy S8 and iPhone X.

VR gaming available on Ulefone MIX with 6-axis gyroscope. But of course you need to research VR for phones. It’s not as good as HTC Vive or an Oculus Rift system but it’s getting better! I have enjoyed VR a lot with my Galaxy smartphones with the GEAR VR headset.

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 Is a Massive Smartphone!

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is Xiaomi’s latest high-end massive smartphone. As you may know the largest phone’s on the market are all 6.4” in size. Let’s see what this phone brings you.

Some specs: 6.44 inch display, 5300mAh power bank capacity battery, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage Snapdragon 625 Octa-core processor, 4G, Gold Colour, Full metal unibody and Sony IMX386 pixel camera.

The first thing to notice with Mi Max 2 is how it doesn’t come with a dual camera design like we saw on the Mi 5X and Mi 6. But a more simple back camera in the corner slim to the body. Also has a nice fingerprint reader at the back for easy unlock.

It comes with an IR blaster that can be used as universal remote. Stereo sound functionality. And even though the battery is large it charge pretty quick. 68% charge in 1 hour. And the battery can last for two days. Some deeper specs how long battery will last are: 18 hours video playback, 10 days music playback, 9 hours of gaming, navigation for 21 hours, reading for 19 hours and call-time for 57 hours! It comes with Quick Charge 3.0 with 200mV-voltage increments.

Something I really like with all Xiaomi phones is each phone has a unique design. And seeing this large-pixel camera up front is truly inspiring. Xiaomi is the new Apple! The camera has 1.25um large pixel. It’s 12MP resolution. Some cool things with it: HDR imaging for vivid photos, Enhanced quality for low-light photo and Phase Detection Autofocus.

The rounded edges, discreet antenna design and symmetrical design truly makes this smartphone look amazing! And it’s also very slim just 7.6mm thickness. Mi Max 2 is very heavy 211 grams but it’s expected when the display is massive. The GPU is Adreno 506 so you should be able to have some fun gaming as well! Software is of course Android with MIUI 8 skin. It will probably be upgraded to MIUI 9.
