how to type a message on xiaomi 1s??my phone has only voice message..help me..
Bought this phone yesterday, and here's my feedback so far.
At RM439 (US$137), The price is unarguably great for a phone that's made to rival with Xperia M2, Galaxy Grand 2 and a lot more.
The 720p HD display is decent, colors are natural and brightness is great.
The design is sleek and looks premium in metallic grey with matte finishing. Build quality is great and feels comfortable and premium (due to its matte back cover finishing) but it's a little to heavy for it's size.
The rear camera is pretty impressive, in can take macro shots and the pictures taken is really great, you can adjust the picture quality in the camera settings, however, the flash is weak. Video recording is also decent and detailed. And the front camera is decent for self portrait and video calling.
It can run heavy games such as Real Racing 3, runs pretty smooth, I rarely had lags but it's not a big deal anyways.
I scored 20569 on AnTuTu Benchmark, I have tested it on other benchmark, but it had already topped the Samsung Galaxy S3, Google Nexus 4, Moto G and a lot more.
The battery life is great for a whole day use.
It runs on MiUi which is Great but the stock launcher and lock screen is pretty lame, but still customizable.
There's also an LED notification light just below the capacitive home screen button.
So far I'm happy with it, I did a comparison to the Xperia M2, but the Hongmi 1s tops the M2 easily with it's great performance, better resolution and better camera. The M2's camera is still horrible just like before.

This is the best phone you can buy for less than USD150 and which still can compete with the with the much fancy phones in the current market.

huzein, 06 Jun 2014waiting for the release date in Indonesia...Xiaomi will enter Indonesia in August 2014.
it's a good phone for me..well design..unique because it has its antivirus built in, closed to an iphone..it not depends on google play store fully..satisfied!!!
Overheating problem. Gets hot with light usage, shame, otherwise great phone.
Never regret while you own this little device, especially on their MiUi roms.. :p
I tried it for few days borrowed from my friend, it is a very good phone, well built body and the OS design is just great, very user-friendly. It even provides elder user mode for user who is not familiar with smartphone. It also has antivirus, performance management app built-in which you do not need to download 3rd party apps with adv booming your phone. I also like the part that you can download theme to change your phone outlay from Xiaomi Store, and of course you need to pay for some of it but there are always free themes for you to play around. The downside of this phone is only has 1 GB ram which I think it is not enough because the firmware itself already uses almost 500MB to run.
