Forbes Asia says Xiaomi's CEO is Businessman of the Year 2014
posted by Paul.K / Dec 04, 2014, 7:33 AM
Mr. Lei isn't done yet, though. He aspires to grow his company to global domination, and while that may or may not be an optimistic goal, it is pretty clear that The Mi has a real shot at making ripples across international markets – with a steady cashflow from its hefty market share in Asia, a continued production of powerful, yet affordable flagships, and its (currently forming) device ecosystem – it definitely has a chance at permeating customers' hearts and minds at a global scale.
Check out the company's latest flagship – the Mi 4 – below. Have you had the chance to play with a Xiaomi product yet? If not – are you itching to get one?

The way he marketing is 10 times more efficient to those who only throw ads on tv. Together with the killing price, no one can run for survival except Huawei and Lenovo

China's population AND the number of relatively poor people who can only afford local brands (there are exceptions but it's no doubt the minority). Nothing wrong with that cause Xiaomi does have good pricing but yes, that's how it is.

3 months of using my $230 xiaomi mi3, i can't think about spending $800-900(price of note 4 and iphone 6 in my country) on a smartphone no matter how good it is....i really love xiaomi and hope it becomes the largest smartphone maker in the world because at the end of the day they deserve it....

how does leveraging cheap labor and copying competitors design and retail model and undercutting their competitors to sell smartphones make him a business man of the week?

I think you didn't read the article its "Business man of the YEAR"... AND as far as labor is concerened almost all the phones are manufactured in china..because of cheap labour.. And for price they dont waste money on marketing...instead they give all that benefit to customer.. and besides their product speaks for itself so they not need marketing..!!
