Xiaomi releases a smaller premium phone that EMBARRASSES similar offerings from Samsung and Apple. Here's a first look at the Xiaomi 14!

The main camera on this thing is pacing (and often outperforming) the main cameras on iPhones and Galaxy Ultras... 🤯

@SomeGadgetGuy Nice! I wish Xiaomi would make more clear-glass back phones like the Mi 10 Ultra.

@Adam I always think it's a fun look. All the way back to the clear plastic game boy 😁

@SomeGadgetGuy Totally! Speaking of which, have you ever seen these? https://funkey-project.myshopify.com/ I got one for my nephew one Christmas, and did a +1 on the quantity for myself at the checkout. :D

@Adam OMG that's adorable. I JUST got Marie a little Miyoo Mini, but I might need to cop one of those for me...

@SomeGadgetGuy - I really like Xiaomi's hardware lots for excellent bang for buck (in fact I am typing this on a Xiaomi phone running Bliss ROM), but folks interested in privacy should know that their stock ROM's (MIUI, Hyper OS) are chonk full of bloatware and spyware. I've audited the network traffic from their camera app, and even when loaded onto a vanilla custom ROM it still tries to "phone home" to Xiaomi every single time you open it.

@TotalSonic You need to write that data up. That would help contribute to the conversation. The last major study I read seemed to focus more on the BBK brands.
If you have that info, it should immediately contribute to investigations, maybe leading to penalties and fines for violating the GDPR.
