When my iPhone 4 started to waver, and I saw the prices in India which aren’t on phone plans I realized I wasn’t going to be able to afford another iPhone. Ben talked me into getting this Chinese phone called MI (Xiaomi).

MI Note 3 Review
Whenever people see my photos on Instagram, they think I use a DSLR to take them. I say no it’s this Chinese phone called the MI!
