Knox Blog Leave a Comment


Never before have i used a China phone but Xiaomi definitely caught my attention. Honestly i never heard of Xioami but from the news i read, the phone was sold out in just 8 minutes after it’s launch in Singapore. True enough, when you visit their official website, it’s all sold out. Even all their accessories are sold out too!

With so much hype going on, it makes me curious as to why this phone is so popular. So i went online and read some reviews and it there are lots of positive feedbacks. First and foremost, it’s the price. Selling at only $169, it is definitely one of the best “budget smartphones” around in the market. It is powered by MIUI V5, a modified version of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. It has a 4.7-inch 720p display and runs on a MediaTek MT6589T Quad-core 1.5GHz processor.

Initially, i wanted to get the MSI B85-G43 Gaming Motherboard but the salesman insisted that MSI is a bad choice for motherboards. Come to think of it, it’s actually quite true. Judging from my own personal experience, my old motherboard was MSI and it was faulty. My cousin’s old motherboard was MSI and now it’s dead too. Well, it doesn’t hurt to try something new for a change, so i went with his recommendation instead.
