im using mi max 1. not really noticing ads. im using firefox with ublock then google aps. the cloud backup in xiaomi cloud is much better than google cloud. the os is very good second only to ios with cydia. you can disable almost all google aps without jailbreaking with the right aps.

Xiaomi just desperatly wants to get in Samsung and Apple level. and Mi users really likes to brag. They are pretty annoying. And after watching this video I think Xiaomi's future is pretty dark

Freemium is allways about having 10% of the users paying while 90% avoid payment. Look at Spotify. Also PR might be difficult to grasp for tech enthusiasts, but marketing is easy to understand as it's about mechanics. Make shitty software = creating a market for support and coaching Make randomly failing laptops = creating a marked for financial services like apple care... Make Minecraft updates exclusive to XBOX = make everyone that loved minecraft hate you, nourishing the deamon that secretly powers your business.

@5:20 what a croc of BS. Seriously, why do you want to put a bad image on this brand ? I find Xiaomi is an amazing company. They are giving a huge amount of jobs to people in china and india (a big % of women in such macho-dominant countries) , I have had xiaomi phones for a long time and I havent spent anything at all during ownership (as you suggest @2:35 ). Yes there is bloatware, and sowhat? Just dont use it, hide it in a folder away from your usual apps and thats gone and never opened, geez.. You know, not everyone is as easily brainwashed by bad companies like Apple or Samsung making really shitty products (check Louis Rossmann repair videos) and getting profit from customers getting some brain jerk-off pleasure. Chinese companies are really great to buy from, I order a lot of stuff from aliexpress and have always had a great customer service and attention to any defect if anything happens. I actually hope brands like Xiaomi and many others will continue to make a lot of profit and sink those brands that have been in the market offering shitty products and service.

I think nowadays people buys xiaomi because of it's great specification in an affordable package. Also the community is kind of backlash the "internet things" as you mention in xiaomi as many of the user simply switch to another operating system that nearly no xiaomi apps installed on it. Also i think almost all of the xiaomi internet services is not available outside china.

Miui positive: They think about services. themes, storage alternative to Google. Miui negative: They rebind the Google play services error reporting. When an app crashes, Xiaomi get's the error report, not the dev through google - even when this is where the app is from.

What Xiaomi should be doing is spinoff the high end phone segment as a subsidiary but a separate unit where Xiaomi makes good margins on phones that don't have that cheap Mi brand on them. Nobody buys a Mi flagship even if its better and cheaper than Iphone when it has that stupid Mi logo on it. Xiaomi parent should continue to focus on selling as many affordable phones as possible in the hope that people pay for internet services. Basically don't put all eggs in one basket.

+Krishna Mohan I understand where you coming from. Myself grow up in an environment where there are zero Chinese brands available. Most of the reputable brands and premium brands are mainly from Us, Europe, Japan and Korea. Factually Europeans brands must sound European like Siemens, Philips and Maserati, Toyota, Mitsubishi for Japan and so on. We expect Chinese brands to sound Chinese. Stereotypical Chinese makes are always copies from elsewhere. Looking at current Chinese mobile, I would think they make good progress nowadays by going into R & D. Xiaomi had huge presence in India, I'm not sure if it true Indian consumer is kinda price conscious, even Apple struggled in India. Huawei is one of the big three in Europe along with Samsung and Apple. Surely build quality of these brands should be good which justify their market share. Sad to say despite what these Chinese companies do, they always being brand as copies. Apple is no longer innovative compare to Steve Job time. Samsung S and Note series are mild evolution of their predecessors. There are consumers willing to pay for that exorbitant price (which I'm fine. It's not my money anyway). Annoying part is there are brand snob really convince only certain smartphone manufacturer are only allow to compete in high end segment.

Atleast they are not as greedy as the American companies like Apple who remove the headphone jack and force people to buy hundreds of dongles. They removed the ports from their laptops and regularly slow down old phones.

From what I've seen in this video, they seem like they're operating in a bubble. Only succeeding because of china's anti-competitive laws creating a bubble where googles superior services aren't allowed. I doubt they'll ever achieve success in a country that has google unless they make some serious changes to their business.

+Corktail the main problem with the battery thing is that, as an user, you had no way to choose not to throttle the system if you didn't care about battery life. Apple takes a lot of decisions on their own, which is sometimes good for people that doesn't know that much about technology but certainly harmful most of the time.
Corktail महीने पहले
about the old phone slowing down thing. lithium batteries dont last forever, and since apple doesnt let you remove the battery, they are slowing down the older phones so the battery can still handle it and doesnt die unexpectedly. they are actually doing customers a favor by letting their phones last longer. but i agree that apple is an ass of a company

2:06 Apple is so good at this tactic. They make so much money from selling hardware as well as internet services. A few good example is iTunes Music, iCloud Service, App store(30% of profit goes to Apple). They have full control of their hardware and software which makes Apple so successful in the tech market.
