Now you can test drive the Xiaomi Mi 3 and Redmi 1s, at SM Megamall


Mi Philippines will hold their first pop-up event from October 23-29 at SM Megamall Upper G/F Building B (across Goldilocks). There you can experience the Mi 3 and Redmi 1S for yourselves, to see what everyone has been raving about.

Mi 3

The Mi 3 – just a bit of history – was launched in partnership with,  sold out in mere hours, went through another flash sale, and was then offered by both Smart and Globe. We have a full review on the way, and the Mi 3 is plain wonderful.


Redmi 1S

The Redmi 1s is a great phone for a good price point. It was launched along with a showcase of accessories – powerbanks and back covers for the Redmi 1S. A full review is also on the way, and the Redmi 1s is more affordable budget phone and noticeably less chunky than the ASUS ZenFone 5.

At the Mi limited time pop up event, you can drop by to try Xiaomi phones and their accessories – hopefully there wil be Mi bunnies on sale. Because you want one. I know I do.

Xiaomi also has fun and exciting stuff in store for fans, so keep checking their Facebook page, and their Twitter and Instagram (@MiPhilippines) for updates.
