Apple's protruding camera is the butt of Xiaomi's joke
posted by Alan F. / Jan 20, 2015, 11:40 PM
The protruding 8MP snapper is the subject of a new video joke produced by Xiaomi. The latter's recently announced Xiaomi Mi Note features a 13MP camera with OIS that is flush with the surface of the phone.
The video, starring Xiaomi president and co-founder Bin Lin, shows the protruding iPhone 6 camera getting hit with a frying pan until it turns into the flush rear camera on the Xiaomi Mi Note. You might not be rolling over with laughter, but the video got a great response when it debuted at Xiaomi's new product introduction last week. At that event, the Mi Note phablet was unveiled revealing its 5.7-inch 1080 x 1920 resolution glass, Snapdragon 801 CPU and 3GB of RAM. Also introduced was the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro with a 5.7-inch 1440 x 2560 resolution screen, 64-bit Snapdragon 810 CPU and 4GB of RAM.
Thanks for the tip!

You'll have to hold it, see it and feel it. It's definitely not an iPhone clone. Just like the Mi 4, many people called it an "iPhone clone", but when you try it in real life, you'll realize that it looks nothing like an iPhone. And their Mi Note Pro is no exception, because even if you didn't try it in real life, you'll see that it looks nothing like an iPhone. You can clearly see the differences between the Mi Note Pro and iPhone 6 in their designs.

Lol! Well this ad proves that Xiaomi takes a "critical look" at the iPhone when producing their devices.

Of cause everyone takes a critical look at the iPhone when producing devices...Nobody wants to get sued over having rounded corners, Apple's patented protruding camera and malleability.

I'm not sure that's a good ad. In a way they are ridiculing themselves, suggesting that it was nothing but an iPhone clone. If Xiaomi wants people not to compare/ treat it as an iPhone clone, first they themselves should stop doing it. Best decision would be to fire away who ever proposed that ad.

Xiaomi's Mi4 had a protruding camera too. Only in the new Xiaomi Note 2 they copied Huawei Honor 6 camera and saved the embarrassment.

Xiaomi's camera is horrible when it comes to the color reproduction...while iPhone's 8MP shooter is one of the most accurate smartphone cameras in the world! How pathetic xiaomi is...

Yep - bigger camera = better camera (with the same available tech). I really love that less than 1mm "ugly bulge" that makes some amazing pictures. They could go thinnet no problem look at iPad Air 2 and it's 6,1 mm non protruding camera you got 8 Mpix and wide apperture.... But just 1,12 micron pixel instead of 1,5 ( almost 80% bigger pixels) in the iPhone - a huge downgrade.
