Finally! Boot to recovery enabled in special bootloaders from Sony

“Review” is used in a very loose sense here. Mossberg doesn’t do the kind of thing we geeks want to know about, like benchmarks.
But he confirms the lust-tasticness of the Xiaomi Note. The Note Pro is the one that gives me tech lust cramps. Such a tragedy it won’t work with U.S. cellphone bands.
