Mi Note 64GB Global ROM Review

Wonder how did the Mi Note 64GB fare?

Yeap. Start of with the unboxing video.

What makes it so special and with the motto ahead with the curve? First thing I did with the Mi Note, set it to the Malaysian Mi Community theme. The first thing I noticed when I lay my hands on it is the curved 3D glass back fitted with gorilla glass 3 on both front and back.

A quick comparison between the size. From left to right Mi Note, Mi4 and Mi4i, The Mi Note spots a bigger display for a good reason which I will tell you why later. It has a 5.7" Sharp/JDI full HD display at 386 ppi(Pixel per inch)

It also spots a Dual 4G SIM Dual Standby(one micro one mini) which makes it much easier to switch between lines without switching phones.

So you think that the pricetag of 1549MYR for a phone fitted with 64GB internal memory and a 801 processor 3GB RAM and maybe a few special function like the Night Mode, torch mode when taking pictures at night(torch is on and not the normal flash when taking pic), bigger gorilla glass display with aluminum alloy body  is a little too much to pay for right? What if I tell you it's fitted with the ESS sound chip with better bit rate than a cd player? Made perfect for digital lossless music. Believe me when I could hear each key, high and low, left and right just by playing my Bohemian Rhapsody FLAC file.

I have also tried it over normal earphones and several different Headphones with same effect. Yes all these is made possible by the HiFi mode from the ESS chip which is only available on very /high end sound devices.

GAMING!! The fast 801 processor makes gaming as smooth as my favourite taufufah(beancurd dessert). Long hours of gaming doesn't seem as bad now. Oh did I mention that it has this Night Reading Mode which reduces the blue light? I literally played the game in the dark for hours without feeling the strain in my eyes.

13 MP back camera takes superb pictures.. Here are some of the pictures taken with the Mi Note


  • Sunlight display in most latest Mi Devices which adjusts pixel contract under harsh sunlight so you don't need to find shade to view your pictures
  • HiFi audio system with lossless playback
  • Bigger pixel sensor size front camera for low light and better clarity
  • Night reading mode with blue light reduction
  • Back camera with OIS stability system increases picture taking in low light condition and long shutter speed of up to 32 seconds(you need a tripod to take good pictures)
  • Larger clearer display
  • Dual SIM 4G

  • The edge is a little rough with the glass back. Doesn't happen on the bamboo back thou. The aluminum sides could be trimmed further for better grip.
  • The glass back may cause slip on an uneven table(a casing on the other hand will kill the style but I still love the device nonetheless)
  • The aluminum frame does heat up a little with long hours of heavy 3D gaming with High Performance battery mode.(4 hours is a little hot to the hands but superb battery life here)

TGV Cinemas D'Pulze Cyberjaya Opening

Quite a few of my friends who works in Cyberjaya say's that although it's a technology city but it seems dead when it comes to entertainment and food. Guess what? With the newly opened D'Pulze mall and the cinema, they can't really complain anymore.

From the 13th to 16th August, TGV actually had free screening for selected movies in conjunction with it's opening. There were 8-bit roadshow activities throughout the day of which you could win movie passes.

Games ranging from shooting the baddies, puzzles, video games, picture booth, stick on note board

As part of the bloggers & medias invited, Screening of Pixels with a glow in the dark Pixel tshirt! Now imagine the crowd glowing in the cinema?

Upon entering the hall, I noticed the seatings were much more spacious and comfortable than other cinemas. I guess it has became a norm with TGV cinemas with larger leg space for a more comfortable movie experience.

Whole row of reserved seats just for us..

Now what did I tell you about glow in the dark tshirts in the cinema? Oh to add on.. Pixels was totally worth the watch. It gives me the reminiscence of the old games I used to grow up with... Pacman, Donkey Kong etc.. If I were to give it a rating, it would be 8.5/10 with +1 for humorous Adam Sandler.

For more info, go to TGV website la.. You mean you don't know the site? https://www.tgv.com.my/ and stand a chance to win exclusive prizes when you buy 2 tickets online -> http://bit.ly/PIXELSWatchandWin

Xiaomi Mi4i Hands-On Review

As some of you already would know, Mi4i would be officially launched on the 21st of May in Malaysia but even when it's launched less than a month ago, there are quite a handful of people who have been asking on the capabilities of this phone. I have the privilege of getting a unit to test prior to the launch and here are my reviews. Note: I loaded the Mi Malaysia Community Theme created by Brother Arif so the UI will look different(depending on the theme you put in). I find it only suiting to use these theme in conjunction with the Mi Malaysia Birthday today and also the launch.

First off, it's the first Mi phone that runs on Lollipop(the latest android) with MIUI 6 built on top of it. It also spots 2GB RAM and the second generation 64bit QualComm octacore processor without the heating issue in the first generation.

Full matte back which for me is a good grip. I would say it's a good build. Light in weight and thin(still no bendgate in tight jeans for the 4 days I am using)

Anti Grease & Fingerprint coated cover. I used a Marker and viola, clean and clear(sounds like shampoo advertisement now)

Comparison in size to Mi3 inside a Mi3 casing(I am using my Mi3 for these pictures anyway), It's actually smaller and thinner than Mi3 with the same screen size. For more on Mi3, read HERE. I would say the display is top notch and better than the Mi3 in terms of colors(Some claims it's better than the iphone 6 and even Asus). In terms of storage, it has only 16GB of ROM which for me is a disappointment but there is the cloud which is provided for Mi users.

It's Dual Sim, Dual Stanby, taking in 2 micro Sims with both supporting 4G LTE. Good for those with 2 lines and doesn't want to carry 2 phones. Usually one for company and one for personal(or one for wife, the other for mistress =) )You also have the choice of disabling one of the Sims(after office hour, quiet time with partner family)

In terms of camera, it came a long way to include dual tone flash(for a more real lighting at night), it spots a 13MP Back Camera and 5MP front camera with build in filters, features(snap now focus later) and my personal favourite Live HDR. I would say there could be more improvements on the camera but for the price, I would say it's a great bargain. Below are some of the sample pictures taken with the camera.

Overall, I would say this would be a good Mi3 replacement and the specs is really high end for the price we are paying(Estimated to be around MYR800 launching price in Malaysia).

The Good
  • 64 bit processor
  • Power Saving(24% drop after 6 hours of usage with screen on for testing during Mi Malaysia Celebration)
  • Superb color on screen
  • MIUI6 ui and features
  • Lollipop
  • Dual Sim supporting 4G LTE
The Bad
  • Camera could do better(raw function etc) but it's already a good one
  • 16GB ROM =(
  • Dual Sim Dual Standby(one active call blocks the other SIM)
  • 2GB RAM(not that it lags and as long as I can get my programs on time this is still bearable and fine)
Verdict? BUY. For the price, this would be one of the best phone to get.
