Even those who think they know everything about tablets will find at least one new thing in it [Google Translate].

Take the Iconfactory’s app Twitteriffic. Maheux ran a test wherein he typed “Twitter” into the App Store search field. His app Twitteriffic was astoundingly listed as the 100th result. Sacha Grief experienced even worse results than Maheux: “The iOS App Store is so broken that I couldn’t find an app even when searching for its full name.”
I wrote this back in 2009: Apple’s App Store Needs Librarians
What I wrote in 2009 is still true six years later.
What a disgrace.
I want to rub Apple’s nose in this. Jack Ma created Alibaba so that small businesses could prosper from the Internet.
Apple has maintained the App Store so that Apple can prosper from it.
What an even bigger disgrace.
It’s interesting that he — a Xiaomi employee who works on MIUI — suggests brands other than Xiaomi in his list. And the iPhone 6 (Plus) comes out on top of all of them, under “Synthesis.”
As for not buying an older phone, I’m not so sure. I’ve been looking at both the ZTE Zmax and the Sony T2 Ultra, both of which are essentially the same with Snapdragon 400 guts. For their price, there’s nothing “modern” to compete with the screen sizes they offer.
In this instance, it’s an iPad. If anyone knows of a similar article with an Android tablet, let me know.
What matters a lot to me is the quality of a phone’s camera.
And I was surprised to see the Mi Note takes a better photo than the iPhone 6 Plus.
First of all, it’s not a “third OS.” MIUI is a skin over Android, not much different from other skins. It’s “non-Google” in the way AOSP Android is. But you really think Xiaomi won’t get Google Certified and add Play Store if need be? Puhleeze. There were and still are craptabs with fall-apart hardware that got Certified.
