It’s time to think about a new phone. In fact, I have already thought about it. More here.
I was not very fond of the Samsung Galaxy S5. It is a fine phone, but it’s not customizable, the Samsung touch wiz is horrible and ugly. I increasingly hate the idea that I have to live with the Samsung idea of what a phone should be like.
So, after a bit of research, I stumbled upon an Ars Technica article and it spoke to my needs. It’s on it’s way via an importer from China. The Xiaomi MI note, look below.
