I am a language student, specialized in Chinese. What brought me closer to Xiaomi is having discovered that there are valid alternatives in the world with a good quality-price compromise. I believe that the awareness that perfection does not exist in the world of smartphones must be put first of all, in order to avoid unnecessary and sterile controversy about the supremacy of one or the other brand.
