    Lei Jun: iPhone still the best

    In a recent interview with the Beijing News, Xiaomi founder and CEO Lei Jun--angel investor in Chinese tech notables like Kingsoft, Joyo, and Vancl--admitted that, despite Xiaomi's increasingly global ambitions, "the iPhone is still the best smartphone in the universe."

Xiaomi's marketshare in China surpassed Apple in the second quarter of 2013. Lei Jun's interview also touches upon new Xiaomi products for 2014 and his recent appointment to China's National Congress. Source: Netease
