Second week of May 2014

Here are some of the stuff that happened or things i found interesting.

Xiaomi Mi3
Last week i got a Xiaomi Mi3, the speed is quite good, the device size is bigger and heavier then my nexus 5. MIUI is quite clean but it has the same problem as iOS the animation speed is too slow that makes device feel slower then nexus 5.

Kickstarter
