Maxis tells you how fast their 4G LTE network is

The battle among major mobile network service providers in Malaysia has turned to be more and more intensive. Maxis knows that it’ll be very hard to conquer,so they have to make themselves strong enough to lead the game.The first move is showing how fast Maxis could be.

Mobile data service has never been so important to the users. Thanks to smartphones. When traveling ,most people nowadays enjoy to share their wonderful moments by shooting pictures and even videos to the friends. And network speed really matters. I believe no one will feel happy when taking hours to upload one photo.

Maxis wishes to get trust from their customers about their 4G LTE network. Thus, they now set up a dedicated LIVE 4G LTE network speedometer page by updating the test results in multiply locations every 3 hours.

I hope that more mobile service providers can do the same thing so that users could utilize the info to decide which telco they might prefer.

Mi 4i – The very first international smartphone from XIAOMI

Yesterday afternoon, XIAOMI held an event in India to release several products and the most major product amongst all is Mi 4i – the first Mi phone dedicated to international market.

Mi 4i

Although it’s named as 4i, it’s actually not so similar to Mi 4 which is an old flagship product before Mi Note. Mi 4i has 2nd Gen Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor (up to 1.7 Ghz) with Adreno 405 CPU,2GB LPDDR3 RAM,16GB Flash ROM and a bigger 3120 mAh battery. So from the CPU specifications,we could know that this phone is not a flagship product, it focuses on mid range.Thus,the performance should be lower than the elder bro – Mi 4.

No more metal cover, Mi 4i has a polycarbonate unibody design with a layer of coating for grease and fingerprint resistant. It’s only 7.8mm thickness & 130g in weight which is 12% thinner and 13% lighter than Mi 4. Continue reading Mi 4i – The very first international smartphone from XIAOMI
