Well, when I went to the South on Chinese New Year vacation then I saw Xiaomi store in the big department store. I heard a lot about this company. I expected to see something really cool and innovative there.

But I was very surprised and disappointed. Because smartphones, tablets and laptops was kinda not main products there. But do you wanna know what? See photos below. Yeah, sunglasses, caps, pillows, glass lunchboxes, kettles, pots, cups, fans, filters, bags, backpacks, luggages, simple screwdrivers, even umbrellas and toothbrushes. Looks pretty cheap, I should say. And these some electronics are even not smart-home devices. You can see their logo on photo of goods.

Seriously, maybe I don’t understand something, but I saw a lot of news about amazing high-technologies of Xiaomi. But actually I saw very simple household goods. I guess PR department of Xiaomi works really great.

But in fact there nothing innovative. Moreover Xiaomi doesn’t understand what is brand means. Maybe they think brand is just cute logo. And if they sells smartphones and electronics very well then why don’t make more money and also sells sunglasses, umbrellas and caps?
