Xiaomi's CEO says the Apple iPhone is still the best
While Jun has been compared to the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, it isn't a label he is seeking or even wants. Still, when it comes to Apple, Jun has a warm spot in his heart. During a recent interview with Beijing News, Jun said that the "iPhone is still the best smartphone on the planet. For Xiaomi there’s a lot of space for learning and talent."
Xiaomi's business plan, though, is much different than Apple's. The company could be considered more like Amazon as it sells its hardware for cost, and makes up the difference with online sales. And this is paying off for Jun as the company was recently valued at $11 billion during its last round of financing. The executive sees the smartphone replacement trend continuing through 2016 and says that high-speed mobile internet should continue to grow.
While Jun raves over the iPhone, he should be proud of the Xiaomi Mi3 with its 5 inch 1080 x 1920 resolution LCD display, the NVIDIA Tegra 4 under the hood, 2GB of RAM and a 13MP rear facing camera on board. A 3050mAh battery powers the model. While Xaomi has become the fifth top selling smartphone name in China, Jun now has to get the rest of the world to notice it.
