KLCC Authorised Mi Store Opening with Mi MIX 2 & Mi A1 Review
My colleague asked me what phones to get for his wife for Xmas this year knowing I am one of the hardcore Mi phone users. Thing is he would also wanna see and feel the phone physically and Mi doesn't have any physical store or is it so? I told him there's the newly opened an Authorised Mi Store in KLCC now where one could touch & play the latest phones before buying. What phone did I suggest to him? Read on to find out..
In case you didn't know, the Authorised Mi Store was officiated on the 3rd of November in KLCC 3rd floor near Starbucks
They have a special promotion for the early bird customers to get devices at RM113 cheaper and the queue started to build up even before the store was opened.
Lion Dance! What would an opening be without lion dance right?
The opening was graced by several VIP from partners, distributors and also Mr. Steven Shi, Head of Xiaomi South Pacific Region.
You get to feel, touch and play with the latest devices and gadgets and most of them are on sale or coming real soon =) So visit now and get your hands on the latest RedMi Note 5A Prime, Mi Mix 2 and Mi Android One?
Now back to what phone I suggested to my colleague? It has gotta be the Mi Android One aka Mi A1 for short. For the price of RM1099, it packs a punch with pure android on Snapdragon 625, lightweight, 64GB internal memory and 4GB RAM. Did I mention it has a quick fingerprint sensor at the back too?
It comes in 3 colours, Gold, Black and Rose Gold
Powered by Xiaomi, the build is quite sturdy with the Matt Chrome finish back
It uses the USB C port for charging, and packs the much needed headphone jack.
Why did I suggest this phone? The Dual Lens Camera takes real good pics and at that price it's the best money can buy phone in the market now. How does the pic fare? You be the judge. Sample pictures as below:
Yes even low light pictures like this..
What is the other phone I poisoned my colleague with? The all new Mi MIX 2 with full screen display. The first reaction I get from my colleague is "Mahal Bro"(Not Malboro ok?)
I couldn't really answer him in a normal sentence so I did it with a song:
Note: I am not responsible if your other half starts singing this to you asking for this phone after this =)
The perfect elegant black mirror ceramic finish sets this phone distinctly from others. Specs? It packs a Snapdragon 835 with 6GB RAM
What's more, it even comes with a full black casing so you don't get a headache to get a condom for your phone.. Oops, I mean protection there =)
Elegant gold words on the back "MIX Designed by Xiaomi"
Top that with fingerprint sensor and gold edged camera with 4 axis Optical Image Stabilization (OIS)
USB C with quick charge 3.0 and Speakers.
You tell me how could this not be the ultimate Christmas present for this year?
Oh yeah, did I mention it's truly global as it takes in 43 bands and 6 network modes? So no more headaches on why my phone doesn't have 4G etc
So how did the 12 MP camera fare? See for yourself
I know I know.. The 11.11 sale is over. But do you know there's the 12.12 sale coming? =)
