The Xiaomi M1s is the successor to the M1 (the S stands for speed) it is a little more expensive at $240, but I really think the extra cost is worth it so I’ve listed it here in my top 10 chinese phones.
Why the Xiaomi M1S?
Like the M1 the Xiaomi M1S has a dual core CPU but in this case a Qualcomm 1.7Ghz CPU so there is a great increase in speed.
There is also a rear 8 mega pixel camera but with a wider 28mm lens and an improved aperture which takes some great photos. The M1S also get’s a front 2 mega-pixel camera, and both are capable of recoding 1080 video!
MIUI also comes installed as standard and is available in the same Jelly Bean flavor as the M1.

The M1s is $40 more than are $200 budget but if you can afford the extra I really think the Xiaomi M1s is worth a look!
Where can I buy the Xiaomi M1S?
The M1S is on pre-sale and you can get more details of it on the official Xiaomi website here.
