Xiaomi, referred to as “China’s Apple” by some people, and apparently some blogs, made headlines a just a few months ago this year. AFAIK, it started from the time they released the Mi 3 smartphone. Much of the buzz about this new brand is mostly about that phone. In a nutshell, the Mi 3, as I’d like to describe it, is an affordable Android smartphone with features and specs as good as a premium-branded smartphone out in the market right now. Affordable because it only costs less than PHP 11,000. (As far as my backstory about the Mi 3 goes, this is only the extent of my knowledge about that phone.. moving on!)
That’s nice and all but I wasn’t looking for a new smartphone at the moment because I am very much contented w/ my iPhone 5S. However, I am looking for a more handy and easy to carry around powerbank. Something I could bring with me when I’m outside for a shorter time. I use my phone a lot when I’m out and about, especially 3G (mobile data).. thus the need for extra battery power. This is where the Mi powerbank comes in.
