The Mi Bunny has spoken (while being cradled in the arms of a menacing sculpture):
mibunny_sculpture.png

"Thou shall have a powerful 5.5" smartphone at a unrivalled price of S$199!"

A much anticipated event, a few of the hard core Xiaomi fans were carefully handpicked by our awesome moderators @FoliathR and @jellytelly for an exclusive preview of the Redmi Note at Asia Square (Xiaomi SG HQ) this evening.

As always, Xiaomi lives up to its slogan of superceding fans' expectations, rewarding fans' copious optimisim ("Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen") with increasingly powerpacked smartphones that get sleekier every single time. The new up and coming Redmi Note is no exception.

The Redmi Note has an almost obscene price tag, given its features:
  • True 8-core MTK 6592 1.7 GHz Processor (wonderful news for gaming folks!)
  • 5.5" High Definition IPS display
  • 3,200 mAh lithium-polymer battery
  • 13 MP rear facing camera
  • 5 MP front facing camera

In summary, it's bigger, meaner and sleeker than its predecessor, and look out for awesome reviews of the new Redmi Note by our very own MIUI news team members @sianman & @zonal!



Who's who in Xiaomi Forum (Singapore Xiaomi fans)


Xiaomi fans that were present, many of whom are active contributors to the forum themselves(@FoliathR, @samyoungct, @Dango, @backlash23, @sianman @zonal, @jellytelly), were visibly charmed by the Redmi Note, as two of the devices were being passed in turn to ~20 pairs of eager hands.

FoliathR and Louis demonstrating cool features on Xiaomi Note / Redmi 1s

Louis, the product manager at Xiaomi Singapore candidly shared on customizing the phone for lite mode users (e.g. for elders / young children) and 'fool-proofing' the interface with a simple mode switch. Not only is it simple to use, it's pretty eye-sight friendly too, with fonts and icons so big that you simply can't miss them! For me, it's really an option to go "Zen" on our mobile phones, and declutter from a messy app-filled screen to a few big squares that sums up my most common phone needs (Call / SMS / Camera, etc). A neat feature to try if you are looking for a quick way to declutter your mobile phone!


As it was a cosy session of around 20 fans, there were plenty of upclose and personal interaction and it was awesome to have such a huge gathering of the Singapore fan base in preparation of the momentous launch of the Redmi Note.


A cool tip on Redmi Note

Towards the end of the session, the group proceeded to the foyer to take a closer look at the Redmi Note (with more favorable lighting!:P). I don't know about you, but this hidden feature of Redmi Note had my jaw hanging; Louis demonstrated it with the dexterity and finesse of a magician doing a card trick, and it happened so fast, i had to sheepishly ask him to do it again so we could take a snapshot of it in action and share this neat trick with all you awesome Xiaomi fans!

Louis demonstrating how to open the back cover of Mi Note


To open up the back of the Redmi Note, all you had to do is to press onto the lower middle part of the phone (slightly above the MI logo) with your thumb, and angle your finger around the clasp/hinge at the bottom and voila! The cover pops open in an instant, exposing a carefully manicured and compact interior with a powerful 3200 mAH battery that stood out in bright orange. How cool is that!


mibunny_super.png
Dressed for the Occasion; Super Mi Bunny!

Of course, as the evening drew to a close, there was a slight tussle over the super Mi Bunny, and some of us nearly got away with it, if not for the watchful eyes of @FoliathR, the official guardian of the super Mi Bunny for the night. Darn. Maybe next time.

This event thread should move to Singapore, since is a hand-on session in Singapore.
Great Meetup with all of you, MIUI fans!
The seating arrangement is a bit hard to chat with all of you.
Hope that future Meetup, we will have round table!

I'll be damned ... I won an invite and had to give it away as my company transferred me to another country at the last minute. I was so damn excited when FoliathR PMed me that I was one of the lucky winners to come for the event.

Extremely sorry SG team I was unable to make it as I was transferred back to India and now heading to Geneva for an assignment. But I promise you the next event I am going to make it .. Hook or by Crook.

BTW what all goodies did the 20 lucky event participants get besides being at the event ? Did I miss out anything else ?? Do let me know !!
