Xiaomi says it will soon solve the most important questions in life

Considering that the teaser also shows a photograph of someone fanning out a decent amount of Chinese currency, we don't need a piano to fall on our heads to understand that Xiaomi's announcement next week has to do with money. More specifically, the ability of consumers in China to afford buying smartphones.
One possibility is that the company is about to go into the business of financing new phone purchases, or will offer some tantalizingly low-priced deals. This might be something that is needed in China considering the state of the economy in the country. Making its handsets more affordable in China, or loaning money to those who want to buy them, could be a win-win for Xiaomi. It not only allows the company to continue pushing out inventory, if done right it also could generate quite a lot of good will in the country.
If the most important question you have in life is "How can I afford that brand new Xiaomi handset?," you will have your answer next week.

Well... being the world economy is taking turns country by country collapsing, need I say China (which Xiaomi is based in), this should be good.

That's because the only way right now for the five big world banks, to keep making profits and keep the big bubble alive, is to make wars and sink nations in debt. Big money withdraws from the real production globaly. I thought that questions get answered not solved. Is "How can I afford that brand new Xiaomi handset?" an important question in someone's life really?

Life's important question- how to get a rose gold phone that doesn't break the bank.

The important question - why do Apple haters HATE Apple users too? Why hate an electronic device? Why hate someone who prefers something else than you?

I don't hate Apple or its users. I do hate some of their anticompetitive business practices (which, in fairness, have decreased dramatically since Cook took over). I also dislike the hypocrisy of some Apple users as pertains to the issue of copying.

You're too sensitive and a crybaby. "Why hate an electronic device?" Because you don't love it in the first place! You like it but you don't make emotional attachment to it right? You use, criticize, abuse and push it to the limit because phone is a goddamn non-living thing. You're suppose to enslave it not the other way around. Seriously, I think people who extremely babysit their phones and glorify a brand too much are just dumbf**ks with mental issues.

That's just it... I have never meat or read anyone glorifying apple or "Apple logo". Only trolls saying that Apple fans worship, glorify, and buy anything that has an apple logo - which is not true. Nobody worships things like that. I like my iOS, and my iPhone. I like a few features of android that are not on Apple - but the overall Apple experience is better for me than what android has to offer. Why does that make me a worshipper?

"I also dislike the hypocrisy of some Apple users as pertains to the issue of copying". This is what actually made me dislike Apple too and certain group of users. If you visit Appleinsider.com and see the comments, you will then understand that there are people who worship Apple. Heck, they even started to insult Tesla just because Apple is entering car industry. One of them said "can't wait to see what BMW and Audi will copy from Apple once they release a car." Spotify is also in their hatred list just because Apple Music came up. And while there are almost no Apple haters trolling in that site, there are people who call Android users, illiterate people who doesn't have any taste and buy iPhone copies. For them (Apple worshippers), any smartphone is a iPhone copy. I know you are not a worshipper of Apple. I have seen your comments and I know that u will only troll if someone trolls otherwise u give credit to everything. And u purchase what u like. But being said that u wanted to know why some people hate Apple-- that was my personal experience why I dislike 'not hate' Apple as a brand.

During 2004 I had purchased a Zen Creative portable Music Player which actually had a deep ear bud earphones and great bass. I chose it over iPod because I like the sound better and ease to put songs. At that time, I was slightly insulted by some iPod users (who happens to be my friends) for buying cheap copy of iPod. The truth was neither it looked anything like iPod nor functioned similarly. That was the start for me to dislike the brand and it's associations. However, I did use iPod 4, iPhone 3g, 3gs, 4 and 4s because they were the best at that time. Now, I am happy with Samsung devices but I keep on getting nagged by few iPhone users time and again. However, I don't care any more.

You're annoying now. While you troll a little more "sophisticatededly" than others, you still troll nonetheless. Stop bringing up Apple in topics they don't belong in or trying to find shoo-in moments to build up your favorite company on a particular generalized technological discussion.
