I geeked out and bought myself a new gadget. Figured I deserved it. LOL I know I’ve been a neglectful blogger lately but hey! mommy duties takes precedence. Plus I also have a gourmet cake business to run. But I still geek out so often on gadgets and all things techie.
Anyway, I’ve been looking for a second phone for some time now and I figured I wanna give Xiaomi a try. They look fabulous! For about a week I flashed MIUI on my other phone to get a feel for the interface and I kinda liked it. Not loved it but I find it easy to use and quite intuitive. The only thing that held me back from buying was the processor. The local shop here didn’t have the one with Snapdragon only the one with Helio MTK.
But looking at the pricepoint (less than $200! local price), I just threw caution to the wind and bought the 32 GB variant! Ha! I’m glad I did.
I have this phone now for over two weeks and I love it! Easy, fast and I love the camera. I might buy another one for my daughter’s bday. The only con I experience is it tends to get hot when charging and there are times YouTube freezes. All other apps and gazillions of games my kids play with are okay.
