          My dear, Mi Max is in Mi Line, it is not Redmi

            According to Xiaomi it is just Xiaomi Max, not Mi Max and based on it’s specs it’s a lot closer to a Redmi phone than a Mi phone. The real Lei Jun would have known that, of course the real Lei Jun also speaks very little English and can’t type in English.

              My dear. I see you cannot know a lot of the Chinese language. We have different writings in the chinese for our products for example: 小(Xiao)米(Mi)Max (Mi max). Also 小米Note with the same meaning.

              The Mi phones with 1 number (5/4/4C…) Have the Writing 小米(Xiaomi)手机(Phone)5/4/4C.

              The Redmi or Hongmi phones have similar, there you can write 红米(RedMi)手机(Phone)Note3 or just 红米(redmi) Note.

              I hope my little statement has put your troubles out of mind.

              My dear, I see you still don’t realize Lei Jun can barely speak English nevermind type it. Would be much more convincing if you typed your comments entirely in Chinese. For now it’s just sad, pathetic and stupid.

              Dear friends, as you can see, my english may not be one of the best one there is. But it is good enough to make basic comments about the beloved brand. I still hope ur everything good and thanks for your support of the millet.

              You guys have no idea ! we are so lucky to have Xiaomi replying on this forum, insulting them is the last thing you want to do.
              When is the last time you can directly chat with a company and make special personal requests or ask some more product details ? would you take the risk to loose everything ?

              You should show more respect to other members.

              I have no respect for people who pretend to be others.

    Any news yet for us Mi Pad 2 owners? Xiaomi is always forgetting they produce tablets…

      Ye, there’s not even a global rom for it yet is there?

      Still no launch in India?

    I wonder why they always prefer Mi Note over Mi Note Pro for every beta. The Pro has much better specs, but we’re never getting any candy.

      Could be something to do with processor SD810 and it’s myriad of problems/issues. The regular Mi Note uses the same SD801 as in the Mi4 and Mi3 (SD800 but same chip architecture).

    Might have to fire up the old Mi4 or Mi3 this weekend.
