Xiaomi is known for another thing besides its affordable phones, though — its super-heavy Android re-skin. Dubbed MIUI, it"s Xiaomi"s own interface that makes the operating system look in a whole different way.
This is why the release of the Xiaomi Mi A1 was such a big deal — the phone is built as part of the Android One program, meaning it runs stock Android, no extra skins, no nothing. A lot of people saw this as an awesome deal — Xiaomi"s hardware is pretty good and combined with the lightning-fast stock Android, the Mi A1 is a great offer.
But, for some unknown reason, someone at Xiaomi marketing thought the MIUI is still the better platform and that the company"s fans would agree. A Twitter poll was posted, asking users to vote for MIUI or Android One. After the poll was closed, the Android option was a clear winner. Then, Xiaomi did something they shouldn"t have — they deleted the post.
Now anyone who knows how the social part of the Internet works will tell you — "If you want something to become viral, delete it". But, fear not — we are here to end this barrage of punchlines. Let"s have a poll, once and for all, and see who the clear winner is!
